I think those who don't know the whole situation should just stay away from this thread.
The grievances being expressed by some members here are legit and these are regular members that has spent considerable time in the Int'l and Philippine forum. Majority of them have been members for years and regularly visits these specific forums, so I think they know what they are saying more than people who have just become a member very recently or members who only occasional visits these forums.
Also, take time to consider that many members from diff. nationalities have observed this as well and not just one race trying to defend themselves. And they are REAL members.
I, too have observed what they are complaining about. For those who don't me, since there are many new members and old members that only occasionally or seldom posts in the Int'l forum I have been a member of AN for more than 3 years now and 2 out of those 3 years as a moderator here in the Int'l forum and Phil. forum. So, I think I also know what I am talking about as well. While I was a moderator here, I concentrated on the Main Int'l forum and the Phil. forum (and visit it almost everyday while I was a mod) so I know the regular members here and those who only occasional come here and basically butt-in on threads they either don't know about or know little of or only know part of the whole story. Best, you don't join in this time around, if only just for this thread.
The situation has been going-on for months now. Sorry, but I find it hard that no member of the Staff don't know of this.
