Hi there guys,
I just wanna take this opportunity to respond the closed thread on the above thread heading and also the couple who requested to have their profile deleted.
I love to debate with people in a civilised manner and bounce off other peoples opinions, so what started out as a question about the method of bag searching here in Australia turning into a little shall we say a little civil war? To me it didn't look like a huge ding dong between the parties involved however I guess peoples feelings were hurt and that's not the way it should go down in here. We're all in the same boat. All trying to adjust to a new way of life, we should all help each other. I could sense the thread was going off topic slightly hence why I put on silly post replies toward the end to try and lighten the mood a little but obviously that didn't work.
I don't think I offended anyone with 'my' own posts however I want to apologise to anyone reading them if I did. I was simply giving my opinions in a non-accusing (specifically) non aggressive way. The hardest thing to deal with on here or any forum is knowing how to read people. Especially if you've never met them. Sometime when people leave posts.. is it sarcasm? is it a joke? or is it just plain rude and aggressive? I have the same problem with txt messages...sometimes we mis-understand what was written and it is taken the wrong way.
I don't believe there is anyone on here thats truly like that. I think if we all met each other we'd see that we're all civilised all trying to adapt to everything new.
To the couple who left who are maybe reading this as guests...
I'm sorry that you felt like you had to go, I can see from the thread which posters upset you the most but even though I wasn't directly involved I just want to apologise if any of 'my' posts upset you and compounded this. This was not my intention.
Anyway, I will make sure that in future if I see any thread/post bashing going on, I'll steer clear and not try to lighten the mood by being an imbecile!
We're all fellow adopted Adelaidians now. Let stick together not like those melbournions...haha..
okay now I'm joking!
