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.

    • Could you now pose the questions I posed to your Christian "friend" and tell us what his answers are? Also a few more: Is it possible for Jehovah to cease existing? If Jesus is God, then why did Jesus call out to God the Father asking why He had forsaken him? Does that mean God can fall into low spirits (dhendi kala)? If so, is He really God? If He's depressed, how can he help us out of our depressions? Or is He really all-powerful? If it's possible for him to not be perfect, is it possible that what Jesus taught can be said to be imperfect? If so, cannot his words in the Bible said to be imperfect? And if Jesus was imperfect, then his disciples become imperfect by extension, correct? And if his disciples were imperfect, then what they wrote in the Bible is imperfect, too, by extension, correct? If Jesus is God, then why was Jesus tempted in the desert when Satan tempted him? Is God tempted by Maya? If so, is Maya more powerful than Jesus (or Jehovah)?
       
    • Thank you.  I don't often eat them myself, but I was curious.  I appreciate the feedback.
    • It must be leaving everything which carries a higher life form In  it - as an egg is the food of a chick. There are some papers or maybe rehet in punjabi which mentions not eating eggs.  Most of my elders did eat though. I think it is recently it got practised more and you can see why. Eggs contain harmful bacteria these days. You might fall behind in your simran by falling ill. Just my speculation. 
    • A poster in another thread mentioned eggs being off limit.  So I tried researching dietary teachings of Sikhi.  I ran straight into a wall of conflicting information. Some eating meat as long as its not kosher or halal, others eating jhatka meat only.  Still nothing on eggs.  I respect everyone's personal choice, but where do the eggs come in?  
    • The videos you posted are highly disturbing.  But you would get a lot further on this forum if instead of your wording above, in which you seem to say all amritdharis as a group are frauds and fakes, you would say: "There are many frauds and fakes who are posing as amritdharis but are actually patit" If you were to phrase it like that, nobody could object to your statement. The reason you are catching flak is because you made a provocative and arguably false statement.
