i didn't call kerry names, but the author proved why kerry lied by quoting verbatim several obama officials.
so, pls spare everyone the whining bit about being insulted when someone used your favourite descriptor. and it was applied BEFORE your whining. besides, speaking of distortions...you chose to distort what i said about glen's opinion and went on to an arrogant suggestion.djpbaltimore wrote:@glenn. That 'apology' was just as disgraceful as your homophobic slurs. You are the most intolerant and negative poster here. Insinuating that your narrowminded views are somehow my fault is ludicrous. Look in the mirror...
@python. If you haven't been following the thread, please mind your own business. Your opinion is clueless IMO.

Might as well just start putting ever single rumour in there. There is supposed to be some sort of standard for evidence as laid out in the forum rules but it seems to be ignored.

I understand this is an English language forum but not everyone has the time, or skill perhaps, to do a full and proper translation of a link they found interesting. If a link is posted in say, French or Flemish, then even if I can't understand it I don't get angry, I click on it and browse for some key words that I may be able to translate to gauge the sense of the article. Of course having a translation always makes it easier, but it is far too harsh to force it upon people. Even if the link is unintelligible to some people, others will find it very interesting, and by deleting posts that have these links you are ridding them of a useful and interesting article. Because, while this forum is an English language forum, it is a diverse and multi-cultural one too.
First of all, that's not at all what I said. Read it again.The rule that all posts with links to foreign websites must have a complete translation else they'll be deleted is pretty ridiculous tbh
Cyclingnews Forums is an English Language discussion forum, please post all comments in english only. Any links attached to posts that are in a language other than english must have an accurate and complete translation of the pertinent subject matter, otherwise the comment runs the risk of deletion.
You're making this into something that it's not. It's impossible to predict the future so I won't comment on most of what you said.Brullnux wrote:Cyclingnews Forums is an English Language discussion forum, please post all comments in english only.

I was talking about this. I have no problem if the policy is as it is in your post, but how it's been written in the 'Links and Translations' section is unclear and probably needs revision, because reading it I still see 'Links must either be in english or have a translation otherwise we delete it'.
I still see no point in deleting images not in English without a translation. It makes very little sense really. Yes it is easier to have a translation and it should be encouraged to do so, but nobody is winning if the post is deleted. It isn't going to achieve anything, as 90% of people who post pictures of articles (Echoes and Flamin usually in the PRR section) do it anyway, and those who don't aren't all of a suddent going to start doing translations, they just won't post at all.
