in thread Way to un-frontpage nodes?

OP wanted to address a group of guys, he knows the usernames and named them properly, then what else is required, the usage of INDIANs is inappropriate there. That is my point.

I wonder what does that say about you.
That says about one billion people including me. I don't want to play with that name and I don't want others to play with that name

    There's an ellipsis at the end of the names. Likely the OP wanted to point out there are possibly more people/nicknames involved, all coming from the same region. For example, as far as I recall, there was boom also reposting questions from stackoverflow.com, indicating some apparent connection to ree.

    Of course it's kind of unfortunate to bring up "Indian" in connection with some questionable behavior, but I don't see much reason to believe the intention here was to discredit Indians in general. And frankly, to me, putting such emphasis on those perceived connotations seems to be more of an attempt to detract from the main issue.

      No, I don't want to distract from the main issue, in fact I have already agreed to comply the norms with regard to front-paging, see here Re^2: Way to un-frontpage nodes?

      from my point of view, grouping us and putting the country name on it; was disappointing.
      some wise monks could have messaged us to stop front-paging those nodes by enlightening us.
      It is all fine, we have learnt when to front-page a node, we will learn from this mistake.

        I agree.  But let's move on and get back to enjoying Perl, which is what connects us all here...
