WELCOME TO THE MOST RESPECTED SOMALI DISCUSSIONS FORUM ON THE NET
SayidSomal, January 29, 2010 in
It’s perhaps to with the fact that I articulated a pragmatic approach towards peacenow.You have been very quick to condemn him because you disagreed with some of his views.
Your essentialist approach and the use of buzz-words is hardly impressive. Calling me a convict is most unnecessary. The use of the term ‘Convict’ is a defaming, for I have not committed a crime. This merits another ban under Rule 7 of the SOL Golden Rules.
Just to clarify, I was banned not because I contravene any of the rules of the forum like you have done on numerous occasion, including today. But rather due to a misunderstanding, which was easily resolved. If my banning was so adverse, I would not have been granted an opportunity to come back again.
Protesting on the use of ex convict to describe your online persona is unwarrented. Perhaps it's due to another misunderstanding from your part to what the usage of such term implies. The degree of the adversity of your previous violation remains subject for interpretation. I however trust the official interpretation of what you have done, which resulted in your banning .
Now the fact you are defending another scofflaw is indicative of your tendency to disregard the basic decorum of intellectual discussion. That you get bothered with a generic description of the state of infrastructure of a city yet cheer for the bombastic nonsense in generalizing all Somalis with sweepings insults does not bode well to your long and productive stay on these boards.
And that is the last word.
You guys remind me of the witch hunters in monty python sketch. A mob demanding, in this case, a member should be banned for his views: He has insulted our culture, our woman and now our children, lol. Come down people, no harm is done, if don't like someone's view of things, move along.
Well done to the people who made the school possible, looks like its doing great things.may it go from strength to strength iA.
Peacenow is what is commonly known as an uncle tom or in this case uncle jamac.
A good post, wish all the best for my folks back in the UK. Well done..
LOL. Good grief. I just pictured some of the melodramatic Nomads on SOL weilding pitchforks and torches, giving chase to poor peacenow, an ill-fated Somali expatriate. Qabtooy! Waawareey! Tol'ayeey! Somaaliyaay! Wuu na caayay. Gabadh buu wax ka sheegay. Gowraca! Gowraca! Gowraca!
The remarks of Peacenow were arguably in poor taste. You can ignore him as Paragon does, or teach yourself how to control your emotions; it works for NGONGE. He's probably livid with peacenow's crusade against arabs, but tolerates it just the same. No histrionics.
I just watched the clip. Congrats to all the diligent and intelligent Somalis out there.
Kii Xumaayye Max, mee?
Kudos to Isse and the youngsters!
viva somali people...the most hard-working refugees this world have ever seen. Kudos to all of u maryooleeys who keep up the somali tradition and fight!!
Now to the egg-heads who hate somalis and their own culture....all i can see hajiyaal, get your head of the gutter and come back to your pple with open arms.
no matter how many castles u build in foregin land, u still that black immigrant who is 2nd class citizen. God help u.
I think Adam and Xiin are overreacting on that one. You allowed him to hijack an entire thread when ignoring him would have been best. A quite message to the admin would have quitely deleted the offending post and life would go on as normal.
Anyway, it's not peacenow we need to pick on here. It's the Qardho guy. He works too much with kids you would think he's Arsene Wenger.
Well said Chief, i couldn't agree more!
Mashallah well done to the yougsters, as well as the teachers that gave them the opportunity to achieve this award.
CONGRATS to the kids! I'm a big fan of alternative schools, especially if they will help improve the high number of somali students falling behind under the traditional school system/curriculum.
A question...does going to a somali school (or any small private school) make it harder or easier for kids to get into university? or does it further segregate them from society?
