    Can you support this claim with examples?


    Obviously background should not exclude people becoming a good or top leader leader

    On Facebook, and I guess other social media, there are a large amount of aligned comments, to borrow your phrase, attacking Zelenski. It is incredible how many posters with Anglo-Saxon names support Putin.

    Ronald Reagan begs to disagree. Actors can help topple communist regimes.

    President Reagan also had very very good advisors which really helped him make decisions.

    As a separate note, I have not changed my opinion about you jgl woodwood DeletedUser and any others involved or your predatorial crowd bullying. I understand there is a strong collective desire to continue with forum life per normal so every time this happens, posts are removed, ppl urged to make peace and ignore if required and for a short while after, things resume normalcy usually beginning with innocuous forum interactions like what you just did. It has happened the same way for all of the times it did - impossible for me to interpret this as anything other than a fake attempt at restarting relations but will eventually culminate in the same type of cornering. I am still of the opinion this is a top priority and there will be the same type of snide remarks at the next possible opening. Ignoring, wiping posts has been a proven failed solution to stem out the problem which actually has worsened so I am very sure it will not work this time either.

    Me leaving the forum and not posting to reduce conflict due to targetted victim choosing to bend over and leave is not something I will ever do. As I said, bullies like you lot should never ever be allowed to get away with it. If I leave, there will always be another coolboy you will be able to find.

    I will not be replying or responding to any thread topics started by you or any of the others. I will make it a point to take note who are your known associates and I will not chime in to their threads or posts. I have never commented or initiated discussions with any of you whether on your own threads or others to date outside of the arguments and this will continue to be the same. This is at least a new solution imo which is better than pretending to make peace. You have your space to discuss amongst yourselves without having to tolerate seeing posts made in a different presentation style and tempo or simply just from someone you dislike because you've assumed a lot of things. There is no need to initiate contact or interact with me as well. But this should not affect general discussions on other things. If there is genuine intention to maintain forum peace, there should never be any reason for any of you to have any sort of contact with me on normal forum discussions.
    Sarsi, you need to take the Geo Forum with a pinch of salt at times.

    Also there is a fair amount of the British tendency to lather a little shits n giggles bait toward some posters that are prone to taking the bait. Although, this forum is nowhere near the very active peanut gallery of banter of its former glorious self, it really is very tame these days compared to earlier this century.

    I'm sure these posters you mentioned are semi reasonable fun in person but then again, I've met some really aggressive ( when drunk) one sided culturally 2 dimensional folks in the expat community in HK, which were at odds with my experience in the USA, EU and The Middle East. Not sure why in Asia, 'certain' expats behave ( socially) differently compared to other places I have lived.

    Take it easy Sarsi :-)
    1000 apologies to everybody else for posting off topic.

    I've got a monologue thread going on by myself full of pointless humor so I'm def last person here taking forum life seriously. I do still think I have not misunderstood other issues so what I said before still stands as my position but again, I really don't see why this should affect general forum discussions at all. I'm very sure ppl posting per normal as I am too for the last couple of days specifically to indicate I'm fine to resume normalcy is really the collective desire of the forum hoping to move forward and not repeat the cycle - this is clearly not done for my sake as a fairly new member but for the others.

    Dunno abt off topic. The only thing on my mind after seeing ronald reagan is there better not ever be a Back to the Future remake in my lifetime.
