Hello, people who are superior to me in literally no alternative universe. :)

It has come to my attention that perhaps it is not the best idea to be as harsh as I have been against Americans, so I will now ask you a few questions to get an overview of what you think. Please answer honestly so that I can make the best decision.

1: Does my continual bashing of America work as a net detriment on the site?

2: If so, is there a method you think I should choose with which I can be more benign in my campaign? Any recommendations as to how that can be conducted?

3: Should I continue with my campaign, would it be best for the site that I instead chose to leave? If so, please say directly if you want me to do so. I'd want a clear picture of how many really do.

Thank you,

Mirza

1: Not really..

2: Maybe by not trying to bash America all the time?

3: Er, go ahead. Not like it's going to kill anyone if you continue. Meow.

1. Yes

2. More substance and less insults, the way you used to do it. None of this "racial" business when that has nothing to do with it, since you've said you don't believe one race to be inherently superior.

3. Depends on whether you reform your approach or not.

Not really. There's a ton of Noam Chomsky's and Howard Zim's out there on this site. You're just one of the most vocal.

2: If so, is there a method you think I should choose with which I can be more benign in my campaign? Any recommendations as to how that can be conducted?

No, I'd like you to stay.

Thank you,

I personally don't think so.

I would just like to see you explain yourself a little more. I had to dig around for a while to see what you meant specifically when you'd say, "pseudo-white". I had a general idea of what you meant, but I wanted the specifics. I wasn't exactly sure of what you meant until your recent conversation with MSPD in your "American's, Tell Me..." thread.

3: Should I continue with my campaign, would it be best for the site that I instead chose to leave? If so, please say directly if you want me to do so. I'd want a clear picture of how many really do.

I would hope you don't leave.

Thank you,

Not necessarily bashing America, but people in general. Even if not intended to be serious or actually rude, it can be perceived otherwise. But yeah, I'd maybe cut back bashing America(ns) a little. :)

2: If so, is there a method you think I should choose with which I can be more benign in my campaign? Any recommendations as to how that can be conducted?

Be more tactful, as lannan said, in your interactions. Try to think about the individual's perception of your comments.

3: Should I continue with my campaign, would it be best for the site that I instead chose to leave? If so, please say directly if you want me to do so. I'd want a clear picture of how many really do.

Psh. Don't leave. :)

No, but you need to save it up. Find a real solid reason or example, then post.

Well, see above. You should be more selective and thereby more effective.

1. Absolutely yes.

2. You can stop altogether, or limit your self to 1 thread on the topic per month, with no posts about the subject in other threads.

3. You don't have to leave, but you should desist with the Anti-American nonsense.

If you turned down the 'anti-americanism' dial to about a 6, then you might be able to start bringing people to your side since theyd be more willing to hear you out, rather then keep being put off by how much you tend to ramble...

Bornofgod only ever talked about being the voice of god, which is why everyone rightfully thought he was retarded, but if he talked about other things/topics as well and only OCCASIONALLY tried to convince people he was the voice of god, people would at least be more willing to hear him out before being so quick to dismiss his lunacy...

So, I gave this some thought, and I concluded the following:

It's a good thing to tone it down, but with people like sadolite, bsh1, and Rosalie being totally opposed to this, I simply have to continue. It would be a shame for all good people to not see a continuation of activity that angers evil folks.

Thanks to all participants. :)

It's immature, stupid and slightly nuts, but it has no effect positive or negative.

2: If so, is there a method you think I should choose with which I can be more benign in my campaign? Any recommendations as to how that can be conducted?

I'd reccomend getting a life, maybe branching out and having opinions on a variety of subjects, not just on the fact that America sucks. I think Anerica sucks also, but I restrict myself to one thread a week pointing that out.

3: Should I continue with my campaign, would it be best for the site that I instead chose to leave? If so, please say directly if you want me to do so. I'd want a clear picture of how many really do.

No you should not continue with your campaign. I have no opinion on your choice to continue your presence or not.

Actually give facts and provide good arguments without attacking people. Just facts, no "America is the Devil" bs.

Yeah, but cut down on the Anti-American rhetoric a bit.

1: Does my continual bashing of America work as a net detriment on the site?

i think other people have generally weighed in on this, but I'd like to add this, even though it's reflective of what some have already mentioned. Your continual bashing of America acts as a net detriment to the site but only because you pick really weak, often superficial examples. You have never, for example, come up with a really good example of the United States doing something incredibly egregious (like what Reagan did in South America, or what Nixon did during the Vietnam war).

Make no mistake, there are plenty of examples of horrible things the US has done/is continuing to do/will do in the future. This Trans-Pacific Partnership is probably the best example in recent history of that, and the US was pretty much the driving force behind it. But you haven't talked about that at all. You just go for what you think is "low hanging fruit."

It gets old, looks bad, and doesn't actually achieve what you want to achieve. If you want to really meaningfully criticize the US, talk about US trade policy with respect to the South Pacific and South America (specifically Brazil). Talk about how the US has more or less created the kinds of conditions where ISIS came into existence by it's omissions. Those are legitimate areas of criticism... and you could actually have something worthwhile to say there.

2: If so, is there a method you think I should choose with which I can be more benign in my campaign? Any recommendations as to how that can be conducted?

Yeah. Do better. Start with the Trans-Pacific Partnership ("TPP"). I can tell you that it's horrible. Like, egregiously horrible. I know I use the word "egregious" a lot, but I mean it literally. Egregious means "outstandingly or shockingly bad." That's what the TPP is, for like dozens and dozens of reasons you could practically write a treatise about.

You could talk about US military failures in the Middle East due to Washington's incompetence. Iraq is pretty much the first thing that comes to mind, and you could also write a treatise (and probably an interesting one) about that. That's an example of broader strategic failures, as is evidenced by the fact that ISIS exists. On a more personal level, maybe you talk about how, for example, US policy required American marines to ignore the fact that Afghani tribal warlords who were not members of the Taliban were forcibly raping young boys as a matter of cultural practice... and the US just "let that happen." It's practically a war-crime by omission.

3: Should I continue with my campaign, would it be best for the site that I instead chose to leave? If so, please say directly if you want me to do so. I'd want a clear picture of how many really do.

Can you clean up your act?

i think other people have generally weighed in on this, but I'd like to add this, even though it's reflective of what some have already mentioned. Your continual bashing of America acts as a net detriment to the site but only because you pick really weak, often superficial examples.
I don't know where you have that from - at all. I haven't mentioned the TPP because I don't care about it; American affairs South America is the only thing I've omitted in my criticism that seems worthy of mentioning. Japan, Iran, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, general involvement in the Middle East, the way American foreign policy operates, are all topics I've mentioned as part of the reason why America ought to be criticized. So, I have no idea where you got it from that I used poor examples; and it seems you either forgot or missed it, since especially the Middle East and America's responsibility in the rise of ISIS is something I've been extremely focused on.
