There was this guy called Jason Hermis. I saw these on his truck. He had a Pontiac Firebird too.

I thought these are the American versions of 'Neembu - Mirchis'

thats an "opinion" of yours, just like mine is also an "opinion" - each one is entitled to his/ her own as I m sure you'll agree.

however, while I may not agree with you privately, as a subscriber to this forum and out of respect for other members, I shall stand corrected on this one - as a moderator, why not knock off that post of mine since I seem unable to?

thanks and my apologies in case any sentiments were hurt.

This forum is made up of people from different cultures, from all walks of life. Calling someone culturally challenged just because you do not subscribe to their culture, good or bad or whatever, shows a very myopic and restrictive view of the world, a view which we would not like to see on Team-bhp.
Attacking a class of people just because you find their customs offensive, is not done.

As a moderator, I find it unethical if I remove a post which does not agree with my point of view.
Since you did not directly break any forum rules, and made a post which I did not find very pleasing, I replied to you as a member. This forum does not belong to moderators only.
All members are a part of this forum.
Deleting your post or removing your post would actually mean that as a moderator I am trying to make the discussion and comments towards my liking and beliefs. This is a strict strict no no
