    I've looked at her stuff , as suggested. Blimey!
    I take your point about not letting her publicise through here, so she'll have to make her own case like everyone else.

    Hey Oz, can't you cut this individual a tiny bit of slack, say in Damnation or something. Some of us haven't been exposed his/her/its alleged bile yet. You can always press the destruct button at any time. And Grumpy's not been back.


    Actually she's not said anything yet that would land her in damnation - she is still free to post.

    My comments were a reaction to the Youtube site she posted. I stand by what I said that I wish she would go to FFI where she belongs. I wish the same to Baal, and Zaephon.

    Those are my personal feelings and thoughts - and carry absolutely no official sanction on behalf of the forum  grin12

    (of which btw I am not a moderator or admin or anything of - and I do not have any official influence over those who run it - my opinion is my opinion - and that's it)

    Just wanted to make all that clear lol  grin12

     Well, I have the strong impression that Stefanie only wanted to give a link to her YouTube channel and that she doesn't really intend to post here... But still, the irrational hostility of some posters to this perceived "enemy" is quite the marvel to behold.

    I find it quite irritating that some particular individuals, in self-righteous postures, pass judgments on who "belongs here" and who does not. This is a forum for all ex-Muslims, if I remember correctly. I never adored Ali, nor do I owe my apostasy to him. But most of us were members of FFI once, and despite the counter-productive atmosphere of the FFI forums, I should think there are still a few valuable posters there. Are we going to discredit people just because they're coming from the FFI?

    This brings me back to my earlier point. There are no "wrong forums." All ideas are equally valid everywhere. My ideas are the same whether they are stated in Islamist, communist, nationalist, white supremacist, or PC forums. People do not belong to forums, but vice versa.

    This is exactly what I was thinking whilst I was having my bath (yes I take my work home with me too lol).

    I have been a member at ummah.com, prior to being a member there I would have thought that everyone there was hateful, they would have to be to post at ummah.  But when I was there I saw some really nice people too, who argued against the hate being preached.

    At FFI there are good people, misguided people and outright haters.  Much like at ummah.com.  Hass you don't like it when a muslim is treated the way FFi treats a new muslim welcome thread, didn't it sicken you to the core to see the way people at ffi and ali sina would assume the worst of a person just because of their belief?  doesn't it smack of hypocrisy to turn around and do the same thing to someone you didn;t even give a fair chance?

    I just don't see the fairness in welcoming a member of ummah with open arms and being so hostile to someone who has been a member of FFI.

    Anyway not that it matters, I doubt she will return, I certainly wouldn't if I had been met with such hostility.

    I dunno Baal, there are some pretty hateful sites against muslims. Saying they are all the same, and that they should all be killed or converted to whatever (Christianity, Atheism)...

    Please don't put killed and Atheism in the same sentence  again. You know they don't belong together.
    It's so obvious and it's not worthy of you.

    Ordinarily I wouldn't react like that - but her site clearly shows where she is coming from and I'm fed up with people like that coming here and assuming that because we are ex-Muslims we will all support such a hateful attitude.

    I just think we need to be a bit more proactive to change that image or it will never change.

    Maybe now, but we could have turned that attitude around and shown that you don't need to blindly hate all muslims.  Now all you've done is shown her that even once we have left Islam, we are still rude, hateful and intolerant.

    Now more than ever you have smiply confirmed what she was probably being taught via Ali Sina.

    We can't sit at this forum hoping that every member who turns up will be completely ready for your way of thinking, we can't create a bubble around us to protect us, we can however proactively seek to make changes on both sides.

    Now you have an ignore feature so if you can't handle it then simply ignore the person as there will always be people you don't agree with.

    She didn't do anything to deserve your attitude, not even her page warranted it since all it showed was a misguided individula, try to hate AFTER trying to understand, life works out eaiser that way.   We have given nastier people longer chances.

    Yeah, right. Do you think Baal, for instance, gives a shit or listens, course not. Maybe Hass jumped the gun a bit, a lot even, but the chances are extremely high she don't give a shit. They come one here all friendly and 'we all agree with each other don't we?' then within several posts it's a slanging match anyway. She dumped her shit here and fucked off - that's how worthwhile it was getting to know her and crossing our fingers she might turn out to be a good old buddy.

    I don't think I am (or ever have been) a rude, hateful and intolerant person.

    I admit I may have jumped the gun with this poster - but I am not in the mood for FFI types here - I don't see why they insist on coming here and I am fed up with the way ex-Muslims are constantly associated with this sort of mentality.

    It's at the heart of why I am uncomfortable at times taking part in ex-Muslim forums/youtube/blogs etc...

    I do not want to be associated with such haters - end of story.

    I think returning here was a mistake - I don't think it is good for me - just gets me wound up again.

    I think you're a brave person Hassan but you've been on the frontline, possibly,  too long now. It would fray anyone's nerves. You can't undo what you've helped to start- but what a start! You should be proud of what you've achieved thus far.
     You deserve a break. Perhaps write a book or something or just drop it from your radar for a while.

    I dunno about hateful, but you were (rightly i think) rude and intolerant to the poster - but that's a stand you have every right to take, just as they think they have the right to stand for the opposite. That's the problem with making a stand, you have to stand up. It'll be an easier life if you don't, but I don't think an 'easy' life is an option if something means a lot to you - you do it despite the difficulties, surely?

    Thank you and yes, I am proud that I helped get this forum started. My intention was always to create a place that was without all the extreme hatred found on FFI and extreme Islamic sites.

    We certainly don't get many Islamic extremists here - and if we do, they are soon prevented from saying anything out of line.

    Sadly we still get FFI types here - in fact some are resident here.

    That, I am not so proud of and is my greatest disappointment.

    It may also be part of the reason why we don't get many ordinary Muslims here to discuss Islam with.

    So in that sense I feel I haven't really done that much good after all - particularly if Baal, Zaephon, and their like have their way and just turn this place into another FFI where they can whip up hatred and violence against ordinary Muslims, who - as the Original Poster declared on her Youtube page are all terrorists and want to take over the world:

    "DECEPTION and TERROR are the two strategies of JIHAD, a struggle ALL Muslims are part of, each in his or her capacity. Some wage this war with their lives through TERRORISM, others do it with their MONEY by funding terrorism, and others by deceptively portraying Islam as a RELIGION OF PEACE. THEY ARE ALL PART OF THE SAME CAMPAIGN. Their objective is to take over the whole world and dominate it."

    BTW I stand by what I said to that poster - to go back to FFI - and I see nothing wrong with saying that to someone who comes here spreading such hatred towards ordinary Muslims and if that is considered out of order then fine - I know I do not belong here.

     Throwing the same tantrum a million times doesn't make your childish hallucinations come true, sorry. I am still waiting to hear where I have "whipped up hatred and violence against ordinary Muslims." Failure to expose my evil bigotry will bring about the logical conclusion that Hassan is a shameless liar. Again, thanks in advance.

    If opposing the absurd and very personal accusations of Hassan makes the accused party a bigot... I'm happy to be one, really.

    I think places like this get too boring for the real wankers, so it's not as though they hang around, except of course under the guise of something else, without mentioning names. Smiley

    I don't think anyone should take it too seriously, or personally, again, without mentioning any names Wink I know it sounds personal sometimes, but it's woth bearing in mind that most of these tossers, in real life, you'd pass on the street without noticing them, the little dullards.

    Plus if you believe that saying she is a hit and run poster makes you feel less bad then go for it too, but lets be honest now., she made one post because who would want to make a second post if all she had rexcieved was "fuck off, or piss off back gto FFI"?

    Of course, but some ex-Muslims like yourself have seen through this, and there'll be other as well.
