    Julian, there is clearly a difference between criticism and opinion, often times things get messed up with both get intertwined, which ultimately results in biased views, coupled with erratic lingo/slang which is what Sunil ji was trying to say.

    Indeed he has done it so crisply that that's exactly what's been going on. With new members popping up, all the while, they don't often have the conscience to what they do or what their posts do for that matter. So it's best too keep the biased thought ourselves and post what can be appreciated as a true review/thought etc.

    It doesn't mean to praise any one brand he/she uses nor depreciate any other brand. xBhp is all about brotherhood and knowledge sharing, and it will be, and that's why moderators are there for, helping us all the way.

    So I guess that answers your query

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Sometimes knowledge sharing cannot happen properly if you are too politically correct. As adults, we must respect each other's opinion even if we don't agree with it. Agreed that there will be some childish quarrels due to this. But thats what these quarrels are, childish. As long as the members cannot express their unbiased opinions freely without the fear of backlash, there can never be true knowledge sharing.

    Finally, I believe that the sample #2 given by SunilG is more of a confused comment which will be ridiculed by the members even more. So it is in your own best interest to avoid forming 'confused' opinions.

    Cheers

    Why does a Moderator writes a post when a member is given infraction??
    Its ok to give them but why announce it on a thread?

    I am a member of many webmaster forums and these things are private. So that only member and mods/admin could see them..
    Admin, do think about it.
    :) :D

    It's very logical to inform in public. Makes everyone else informed of the consequences.

    What you see is just half of the picture. Moderators do talk to troubling members in private and try to talk it out.

    The warning in public is given only when talking in private doesn't seem to work.

    Eg 1 – Sms Language or Short Forms
    Have remved it! nice tip bro!
    yeah the sound is cool…..somewahat like a mild versn of the k&nsnd
    is der really an issue of overheating??
    and if der is it may mean that da bike is getting lean,and if so means that remvng it increases air flow to an extent?????????????
    hey and what about water during da rains it could get into the airbox??
    Eg 2 – Provocative post or post which may hurt others sentiments
    Test driven cbr 250r yesterday and i wasn't much impressed personally.Because It felt too light.The brakes were pretty sharp.It felt more like riding a yamaha r-15 and its nowhere like a ninja, Ninja feels stable and rock steady,a feeling which i never get in yamaha r-15 and din't get in a CBR either.They r nimble bikes, easy to flick around in city traffic.CBR's pick up is better than ninja,but then i feel u don't need so much.Ninja's pick up is just right for our roads..And i definitely dont think a cbr comes anywer close to ninja in the looks department.CBR looks all fancy,Whereas a ninja looks mean .Basically if u like yr motorcycle light,sleek,flickableu'd like a cbr but if u like yr bike solid,stable and planted u'd love a ninja more.
    ^^ If this is offensive and un-formatted please have a look at duke200 thread, ns200 thread, look at any of the speculation/new launch threads, a huge number of posts are completely OT, not even minutely relevant to the discussion, the quality of posts has gone down tremendously in the last few months, not only that, name-calling and disrespecting other members is becoming a common trend. I have been a silent spectator for quite some time now but have started reported these posts whenever I can, but I only end up with a bad taste myself. There was a thread related to road rage incidents and XBHPians condemning such acts to the core, but the temperament(aggressive and intolerant) that they exhibit on the forum makes me quite certain that they would behave very irresponsibly if they were to end up in these situations. I request mods to be very very strict in enforcing the forum rules. Please kick them out.

    OT :Mods could start another thread "Gaali-Galauj and maar-dhaad" allow people to vent their anger and frustration there and not to pollute all the threads.

    i was thinking the same , why don't create a bashing thread soley for bashing of brands for who like to put there supreme knowledge of bikes in each and every thread. whenever i visit any thread all i see is full argument on this bike is good that is good, quite a few times tried to convince ppl that all are good ..but now stopped it , let them enjoy there opinion.

    all i know is a true biker will respect every bike on road be it a XL50 or mighty R1 .. respect is what makes us more bikers then commuters

    Well, they should ! Also, I advise that the forum rules and etiquettes should be emphasized time and again, once in a week, can we have the rules displayed on the main page? On the signup form, make checkboxes against each of the rules, atleast people will have to read the rules before joining XHP, because i am sure, none of them have read it, they have simply accepted. There should be a provision of imposing temporary bans, something that prevents the user from posting for next 5 days or so. And these actions should be taken frequently. I am running scared these days, there is a whole bunch of over-informed teenagers on the forum, on each thread, waiting to belittle the opinion of others.
