"There were ad hominem attacks because you came into a forum of women that have been used and abused by men, and you told them it's their fault. Don't play dumb. You wound us all up."

Firstly, there were Ad Hominem attacks b/c the posters dealt w/ my constructive criticism & advice w/ emotion, not logic. There is never an excuse for insulting the person behind the argument. Secondly, I'm not playing dumb - I acknowledge in my comment why no one is posting here (Ad Hominem attacks by several users, rants, etc.)

"Aside from a few jabs here and there this blog was fine until you came along."

So, a website where mostly middle aged, grown women refuse to accept responsibility for their actions & a website where men of Muslim faith are referred to as "rats" is fine? I don't think so. Generalizations of groups among religions is never fine.

"And still to this day you haven't contributed any helpful advice to this forum."

Actually I've contributed the most helpful advice that anyone has given on this website - non-Muslim, &/or women over 25 should not date or marry Muslim men, they should date w/in their culture, & age range, & they should accept responsibility for allowing themselves to be used by these men, so that they MAY PREVENT THEMSELVES FROM BEING USED AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. That's the best advice you'll get anywhere.

"You've never been involved with a MENA man (he was Senegalese?) so a lot of your comments are invalid."

Of course my comments aren't "irrelevant" b/c he was west African...this site is about Muslim men (& non-Muslim women)

"I don't get what you're trying to say..."

Then read my comments. They are clear and self-explanatory.
