Stop insulting the responsible, hardworking moderators.  First of all, they are our brothers and sisters in Islaam.  Have respect for that basic fact.  Secondly, they have taken on a job which we should be grateful they are doing.  Your attitude is childish, not theirs, and you should stop insulting them and just make your own site if you don't like the rules in this one.  Send out invitations and maybe some people will join you.

wow.. it took you a long while to answer this one.. this is almost old news....

When the moderators stop being heavy handed.. no one really complains... Actually I'm pleasently suprised they havnt closed a thread in a week or so.. Maybe they're changing... or maybe they're just banning people alot quicker..

And just out of curiosity Herjihad.. what job is it that they're doing?... Protecting us from the boogiemen of the internet?

Ps. I do have my "own Site".. and I am a moderator.. I know how tough it is.. but I also know how not to loose my objectivity.

Intrafaith forum is strictly for islamic discussions. We cannot allow secular and non-islamic discussions on all forums, thus members shall be allowed access selectively.

There are several forums open for you, please confine your discussions to those.

Thank you,

Nausheen

Bismallah:

Intrafaith is what I call the Da'wa channel! No reason to become offended! Insha'allah I will leave that for the more experiences posters and moderators and there is plenty available elsewhere in the forum for other topics! Please brs and srs, don't become inflamed because you can't play there! NO one is out to get you!

135. O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well- acquainted with all that ye do.

"Every good deed is charity whether you come to your brother's assistance or just greet him with a smile.

Bismillah,

The moderators here edit and delete portions of posts, full posts, and users according to the guidelines that Islamicity has for us.  Why are there rules?  Hmmm.  Because there are?  Because we like to come to a place that is not littered with porno and swearing and personal or general attacks on Muslims because we live with that everywhere else.

I reiterate my request to everyone to stop attacking our moderators with personal insults.  Disagree with them all you want, but don't get insulting or rude.  We all lose our heads, but if you can't think of changing some thoughtless comments before you click the "Post Reply" button, you can edit your comment before anyone has seen it.  You can preview it to make sure it sounds fine.  You can apologize for rudeness even when you didn't mean it.  It 's okay.  Really.  Real men DO apologize.

Assalam Aleikum.

I am also a moderator at another site (I do not own my own site), and I always maintain objectivity. I have found that many of the participants on the net simply read the discussions, and many have thoughts about converting to Islam. When a moderator starts to stack cards in favor of a particular faith, it becomes very transparent to the readers, and the forum can loose its intellectual credibilty on the net. May I ask you what site you run Br?  

A feeling of discouragement when you slip up is a sure sign that you put your faith in deeds. -Ibn 'Ata'llah

There are rules because there are?... wow... ... SO i bet There are apples because there are Oranges!

The moderators dont get attacked untill they do somthing to warrent it. When the moderators start acting out of their own personal feelings then there is a problem.. When a certain new moderator came to power - there were like 30 locked posts in matter of days. That is a little excessive. And I will call them out on it every time.

but of course you have nothing to fear herjihad.. you're their cheer-leader... i doubt you'd ever be moderated... The most annoying thing that moderators do, is play favorites on this forum. Just beacause somone is Muslim shouldnt be the reason that he/she is give more latitude compared to somone who is not.. or is ambiguous. and dont tell me it doesnt happen.. because I see it all the time... and i'm sure people will back me up on this. Islam is about alot of things.. one is being fair. Not just to your own, but everyone. And like Andalus said.. this place will loose intellectual credibility..

This place shouldnt be a sanctuary... here no-evil, See no evil, speak no evil never helped anyone... in the long term. Some things need to be moderated.. yes.. I wouldnt want porn on this place either. But we're not talking about Porn.. now are we?...

There is an obviouse difference between personal attacks and genuine criticism. Most people can draw the distinction... somtimes when it involves religion emotions cause the line to be blurred. Everything is allowed to be critisized and debated... that is the point of free-will.

And just because somone slaps a Muslim sticker on somthing or somone doesnt give it a right from being critisized, stop pretending as if it Does. This isnt middle-ages christianity here...

PS. REAL MEN DOnt roll over and die.. or somthing like that... Use your Imagination.. But i Will say this.. latly the Moderators are doing a good job.. except for maybe that thread about the Mormons...  but they dont need my approval. They can incriminate them selves with their actions.
