Where are the double standard lads gone? 

I do believe you are not allowed to recognise Asian peoples cultures or backgrounds here anymore....yet you can call them 'stupid' instead which is a bit personal attack I would have thought.

Come on people either enforce the site rules equally or you could look like raving hypocrites and potentially racist ones.

 

To the poster who wrote the bit I quoted (whose moniker I deleted intentionally), no one sane or rational thinks there is anything racist about that. The losers and woke will certainly have a problem with it though, but that's what happens when you have no life and all you have to spend your time doing is bitching about all those who do. But as I, and a few others, have been told the rules are the rules and considering the EXACT same term was pinged only yesterday...........

************** edit

By sort it I mean correct yesterdays shocker and leave todays alone. Both are accurate statements, neither are racist.

Thankyou for pointing that out, now edited. First, I wish to say I had NO COMPLAINTS/reports about this one. The other one you referenced I had 4 different members tag it for moderation as racist. So I edited it.  I reiterate that I don't read every post, and may well miss anything that is not reported.

This post (quoted above) is marginal, it is discussing moderation on the thread, which is specifically prohibited.  You may PM me or send me an email, or give me a call if you wish to discuss any moderation decisions. None of you are aware of what correspondence I get from other members, so are not fully informed.

I dont wish to spend my time moderating this site, and the only reason I have not awarded warning points for this is that I wished to point out that if people don't report stuff, it can and likely will be missed.

Please just stay withing the site rules, it makes it easier and more pleasant for all.

I have a fair dollop of continental Indian in me and my kids are 1/4 Maori so I’m no racist . I was just stating facts , Asians and Pacific Islanders go to great lengths for a taste of fish . risking their lives in the process . I could be equally factual and state that white males over 45 take silly risks on motorbikes and often die  , sometimes in the pursuit of fish and chips at a pub way out the back somewhere .

Oh, I'm up for the full monty. I let it lapse 9 years ago, but only had my learners permit in NZ anyway, for heavy trade and heavy trailer, or so it was called when I got it. What's it called now, class 1 & 2? Got that many moons ago when I was in charge of a jack hammer for a construction company, as a way out of hanging onto a jack hammer all day.

I've driven commercially in the UK, but only light trucks, food service and furniture lorry kind of stuff. Wasn't entirely clear if I was licenced to drive over there, but no one seemed to care. I only crashed once, or maybe twice. Depends on what CCTV footage you had access to ;-) 

I'm perfectly happy in that size truck, and would rate driving a 6 wheeler around a construction site higher than packing shelves as a virusmarket.

You will be have to a log book course,easy as,Med cert,then maybe get a class 2,4 wheeler,6 months maybe class 4 then if you want the full monty truck n trailer in 2 yrs but you can do a 3 day course I believe and get the whole lot in one hit $1600 there abouts.Been off work fully paid last 3 weeks,semi driver, quad 26 deck DAF 520 or 620r scania. money is there nowdays.

Can't say I read it, or am even aware of what has upset you this time, but, looks like it should be in smalltalk, doesn't it?

You know you can just report posts instead of having a big knicker twisting tanty and all. Its loads easier, keeps the flow of the thread intact and everything...

Agreed 44forty. Personally I have no issue with what you posted.  I usually don't change anything unless its blatant, or I get multiple complaints. Like most people, I try to be fair, but i have good and bad days, and sometimes posters piss me off. Some are like whack a mole, just keep popping up! And its interesting when I get reports about posts that directly contradict each other, occasionally even from the same user!  Its interesting who acknowledges anything they have done, accepts any warning points, and moves on, and those who think they are special!

Marinetalk is the only part of this forum that I visit but even this is going down to toilet.

I wish the shouters would take their spats back to Smalltalk where they belong.

Aleana unfortunately C-19 is a broad topic affecting everyone, everywhere in every industry in the whole universe.

think about that for a moment...  To get a bit of creep into marine chatter is natural, if it gets a bit edgy a gentle prod gets people back in line and if you havent been warned or booted at least once then you're a saint :)  I like to think despite the differences of opinion we have more in common than not except for you know who 😜 ha ha just kidding!

carry on

The virulent nature of C19 in every sense is all the more reason to preserve some sanity in a refuges like Marinetalk.

I wish it could be vaccinated from the Covid-infected rambling posters who should self-isolate in Smalltalk or shout at themselves in their bathroom mirror.
