Is it acceptable on this site to make sneering comments about whole nations, identified by name?


Is it acceptable to attack Proz members who object to such racist comments?


Perhaps those members who have been posting those comments could justify their actions.

racist remarks are entirely unacceptable Apr 16, 2002

I thought this was supposed to be a \"professional\" website.


What exactly have you seen?

I suffer it all the time May 29, 2002

As I usually participate in a non-Arabic pair, I find that my Arab name is a big drawback on this site. I have received a lot of racist comments. Sometimes I feel transparent. But I have to say that, in general the colleagues are great. Ever since September the eleventh, the bad feelings of some people have come to the surface.

I don't think you need that question answered John Jun 2, 2002

It\'s not acceptable to make sneering comments about anything and end of story.
