    I am leaving the forum because of the high degree of dislike towards muslims, because of the personal insults i received and due to the overwhelming tension and oppression i was beginning to feel, because of that almost personal insult that i spoke to someone last night. It was my limit.

    I hope somewhere in the forum rules it is stated soon, that this forum is only for native speakers of english. It was brought to my attention at least three times and it is hoped i am belittled by it, too.

    I would like to thank my friends who made my time worthwhile here, who gave me a smile, a new way of think, who had broad and generous hearts. I will miss some of you real much. I hope to see you somewhere in eternity.
    Bye Bye.

    I'm so sorry you've been treated this way here. I hope you have a good time being away from such poor treatment.

    I'm sorry you were treated poorly. That's really terrible to hear that people can act like that. I hope things are better for you now, hopefully we will meet again.

    Have you tried the following:
    1) Put people that insult you on ignore.
    2) Report insults to Staff.
    3) Post in the Islam DIR

    I think doing these things should eliminate or reduce the problems.

    There are not enough Muslims or Jews in this forum. We need to keep the ones we have.

    Don't let the abusive ones here get to you. Rest a bit, please return when the bad taste
    wears off. Some posters are best avoided, & dealing with them is a learned technique.
    I'm not alone in wanting you to stay.

    It really gets easier. I have lots'o people on me enemies list, but they don't bother me.

    I'm so sorry about the insults thrown your way, especially the ones about your English language skills. I think you speak/type English remarkably well. Most Americans don't speak but one language so we have no right to criticize your efforts. You are quite proficient in English and I think you should be proud of yourself.

    I hope you'll come back! I've only been back a short time but I've enjoyed your posts. Have a great day today! :foryou:

    I don't recall ever noticing that English isn't your first language.
    Where are you from?
    Also, who else will charitably toss me a frubie now & then!?

    From what I can see, there's only a small fraction of people here with an anti-Islamic agenda, so my recommendations are the same as Avi's above. I truly hope you reconsider and stay.

    Personal insults are a mainstay of RF. If people reported each and every insult the admin's and mod's mailboxes would blow to smithereens. Putting people on ignore is the best suggestion, imo. I can only see three people on RF and you're one of them. Lucky you! :p

    Woot! I'm special!

    I still think if someone is getting repeated harassment, the staff should be aware of it.

    I echo these sentiments, A. Never let the jerks get you down. Stick around, it will drive them crazy.

    I am very sorry to see you go. :( I agree with those who said it's always sad when people leave for that reason.

    If you feel there is bigotry against Muslims and Islam then you should stick around to fight the good fight against bigotry.

    Oh Ametist I think that I have been responsible for it too. I am so sorry :(. Sometimes I become aggressive with my posts. I really wish you reconsider your decision.

    Please accept a hug from me if you feel like it, :hug:.

    I'm sorry, ametist. This forum has been really angry lately and the hate speech is getting out of control in some quarters, so I can sympathize. :( God bless.

    Sorry to see you leave, ametist. I also hope that you come back. If you wish you avoid the questionable people, I recommend staying away from teh debate sections; they are the most prone to conflict.

    I specifically make a point to stay away from the debates sections because they are awful mires of awfulness.
