Zero Tolerance for Offensive Postings

Dear Editor,

Last year, when I first started participating on this forum, you have been very helpful to me on a few occasions when I contacted you asking for help and assistance. So, now I decided to turn to you again, with a complaint, without really being quite sure that I am doing the right thing.

Lately on the forum appeared one Tom David. I have seen his name before but never really got involved in any "debate" with him and did not get to know his views or to experience the venom of his hateful postings. Well, he is back and I happened to come across his posting, which I found extremely offensive, vulgar, terribly disturbing. None of those were deleted, and tonight, after reading a few of these I got angry.

The posting I wrote in response to his comments was rejected. I did post a note to the moderator, however I feel that it would be more appropriate if I am allowed to post my response rather to wait for all his to be deleted. I believe that this will show him that he cannot intimidate us.

There has been very insulting posting addressed to me so far and they were not deleted, even though they were written in Bulgarian - I believe this to be against the rules. Though I do not mind that these postings were not deleted because without them my responses would have been meaningless.

This is the long take of a short story. I am very disappointed and wish I did not have to bother you.

However, let me say that this forum had provided me with an opportunity to express my views and interact with some very nice and intelligent people as well as helped me get some insight into the thinking of some Bulgarians and for that I thank you very much!

Hope you will pay attention to my complaint and will appreciate it if I am allowed to post my comment in response to Tom David.

Thank you again and all the best!
