I have been a member of this forum since late 2011, during these last few years I have witnessed a great many changes in the administration and content of this forum. The current toe line, however, seems to be focusing more on aligning dissident opinion with the majority's through the use of bans and heavy moderation which-in most cases- I believe to be generally uncalled for. I understand that this is only my view, but nonetheless it is a concern which has been voiced on this forum several times before. At the end of the day, whilst profusely thanking all fellow accounts, I will also request the mods to pay heed to my reason for leaving this forum:

Sikhi was never based on a majority consensus opinions where Jathebandi fanboys had rule of the roost. I don't understand, then, why this forum has mods who swiftly expunge any content which they deem to be an antithesis of their own cherished perceptions.

Brother 13Mirch Jee,

I would suggest you not to leave, stay here, we need cool guys like you also.

You have to keep in  mind, quality control and moderators are human beings also, thus not perfect.  They have a tough job themselves in being moderators. 

So if you disagree with any of their actions, just overlook and forgive them.  Not everybody has the same point of views. But that does not imply, you should leave this site.  You have never harmed anybody, nor being disrespectful as far as I remember.

It is a pity if you leave, just as Jacfsingh did, or some others also. You write what you want, and if you believe you have not done anything wrong, then you may protest, and for sure you will have all the support from the sangat here.

I take this opportunity, to plead mods/admin, for not allowing anybody being bully here, be it anyone.  It does more harm, the any good. For the good members leave away, and the bad continue to stay and keep on bullying from time to time.

Stay blessed 13Mirch Jee.

Sat Sree Akal.

Please use “report this post/reply” to get immediate attention/step by moderators/admin. There are some who use this feature but not a lot. Give it a try next time you see something that shouldn’t be up on Sikh Forum.

That is no reason to leave.

However I do agree if there is disagreements against sects/jatha's then there should be a separate area in the forum to discuss such things but no good ever comes out of it usually. Better to focus on topics that majority of Sikhs can unify on and discuss.

I used to be just a guest reader of the forum but decided I need to take part and air my opinions too as we need diversity of thought sometimes. I have seen the forum drop popularity over the years with the rise of facebook and other social media's but it will regain popularity again if we can tolerate each others views and actively participate regularly. There is an issue of non-sikh trolls infiltrating the forum just to divert attention sometimes and try to make a mockery of Sikhs on the sly. That's why I think heavy moderation was needed, however there needs to be a fine balance and census formed between what is accepted speech and what isn't in Sikh forums.

    • Looking to start a residential school with two goals - 
      (i)Provide underprivileged kids with a childhood and education
      (ii) Teach these kids gurmat, sangeet and shastart vidya with a view to prepare future parcharaks - ones who will help entire humanity (not just sikhs) unlock the peace and joy that is forever within us. I have created a facebook group  , please join  (https://www.facebook.com/groups/402189280239697/)- Feel free to add your friends - please spread the word , also lets start idea pooling as to how make this work at scale - my vision is at least one or more schools in every city/town/village where we have sizable sikh population. Currently our dasbandh is being wasted on lavish langars and palatial gurdwaras, we need simplicity and altruism that gurus espoused
    • Lol, I haven’t put it on here as the guy mentions meat in it, so I thought non meat eaters may get offended. But I’ll send you it also and you can put it on if you think it’s ok too.  Plus, it’s slightly different to how I make it, but the nearest I could find on YouTube. 
    • Scusi Signora, where is mine? I demand this recipe is made public!!
    • Check your inbox, I’ve sent a thorka recipe.

      His political opponents say he is a man of style but absolutely no substance, who will say and do anything to accumulate power. The Sikh masses like him because he makes them feel that someone 'normal' just like them has risen to the top. There is nothing 'normal' however of being born into a millionaire doctors family and spending your whole childhood in an elite north American £35,000 a year boarding school. In that respect we've simply replaced the usual rich priviledged lot that take power for granted with another one that looks a bit more like us. What kind of 'Amrit' was it that Jagmeet Singh took that makes him think he is above Guru ji's hukam and maryada ?  Like Trump, is it not another case of the rich and powerful thinking they can make up their own moral codes as their lust / ego desires.
