    You should ask whether the 6000 postings is worth it or not.
    I am personally feel that she had been a good member and she worth the 6000 postings.

    it's pretty cool to get several kkk's pics from her.

    Ya, the term was not used to disparage anyone. Far from it.
    The term was actually coined by the newscasters and newspaper reporters and at times used as such by commentators of badminton tournaments and on tv sports tickers. It is just like the word 'Brits' being used for the British or Britons and they don't take any offence.
    Anyway I thank you for your undersatanding and I will be more mindful of the sensibility of some people. Regards.

    Hmm..

    ..i was browsing through Wednesday's matches, and if it were not for Park Wan Ho's lost, the KOR MS squad could've easily white-washed the rest of the competition..:eek:
    Off topic:
    "Work"?? I thought they were done voluntarily?? Or is it "voluntary work"??..;)
    Btw, we must commend you on doing those tasks.:cool:
    We'll probably "angkat tinggi2" (lift/praise highly) you once you near cooler's posts total..;)

    Btw, it seems like we've been missing quite a few of your newspaper news article postings and.................. the "Upset List" for this tourney..:confused:

    I meant "dont angkat2" or I will ask you to do work.;)
    News article is 95% retired. Upset list, since you were so enthusiatic abt the 'outside top 10 beat top 10" format, etc, why dont you do it, I'm sitting out the BAC and maybe future tourneys :D:D.

    Oh I didn't realise. Sorry. I don't understand what is uncomfortable though. Scottish people get called Scots. British people get called Brits. :confused:
    I dont mean to offend anyone or anything but if you could tell me what is offensive about it? :confused:

    the word 'Indon' is not comfortable For us. It's a wrong word to represent Indonesia. Country name is a honour..
    You can use INDO to spell Indonesia also, but don't + the word 'N' behind it.
    Thank you for understanding..

    Reminding you for being off topic?? Based on your 15,000 over postings here, I believe you are beyond the reminding stage.

    OT also :

    See, told you all dont "angkat2", will cause more mocking(which is even more off topic than the earlier discussions), which will lead off to no where. And those who dont "angkat" should try actually contributing to the forum & doing some of the work, perhaps double ;);).

    If not, then I no need post lor, since some people will complain sooooooo many posts. All the info keep for own private knowledge can already. :rolleyes:
    (of course, of course, as I'm typing this I also got some of my work done +++other stuff :p )

    The word Indon

    It was started by a famous journalist of the Straits Times in late 60s. He also nicknames Thing Sian Hu as "The Thing". He always called Indonesian players as Indon and his main idol was Rudy Hartono. He called the players from Cambodia , Vietnam as Indo players.The word Indon is not deflammatory, it is a mystery to the world why this word is offensive to our good indonesian friends. The word Indon is universally used in good faith and in good light by all friends of the good people of Indon(eisa).

    Its true, I dont understand what's the fuss with the word 'Indon'. Even my Indonesian friends refer to themselves as Indons.

    I myself don't know also why the word 'Indon' had offensive meaning to us Indonesian.. it has ever been discussed in Indonesia forum, that the word 'Indon' has bad meaning for us.
    so i say Indonesia people don't call their country as Indon.
    just Foreigners/Strangers call Indonesia as Indon..

    Indon and oz for australia

    You may have known people coming from Australia like me are sometimes been referred to as man from oz which is fine. Indon is shorter to type than Indonesia such as we use c u (see you), tq (thank you) in sms. The main topic we discuss here is always badminton and if we refer to Rexy as coming from Indon, we mean "Rexy is one hell of a good doubles coach coming from Indonesia." We respect both Rexy and Indonesia, 100% no offence intended. So take it easy, my Indon,er..........sorry Indonesian friends, we are more about badminton here and your country certainly had produced many , many good players.

    Man from oz
