My deleted threads on a neighboruing countryI earlier raised one or two threads on one of the neighbouring countries of India. In those threads, I mentioned that the country's Prime Minister has been begging for alms/grants from some other countries. These threads were promptly deleted. I was given to understand that my threads were of bad taste and I should not mention all these things about a neighbouring country. These were the justifications given for deletion of my threads.
Today, a distinguished Member of ISC has raised a thread where he started in this manner: "As we have begged and borrowed many items and technologies from China." At least another two Members (excluding me) raised an objection to this. But even then, the thread is allowed to remain, it has only been locked to prevent further responses/objections.
So, we may now conclude that if we say India is begging and borrowing, it is perfectly alright, but if we say that one of India's neighbouring countries is begging (which is factually correct), that is not acceptable in ISC. Isn't it?
