My 5 cents to Nadia

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: To Siobhan, Cynthia, Marissa and all: my sincere apologies

With all due respect Nadia, I think you misinterpreted Siobhan's message. I absolutely agree with you that any kind of expertise can be helpful and welcomed here. Our Siobhan was referring to very particular views expressed on the forum, those representing NO first hand experience, factual knowledge nor basic compassion. She remained elegantly disengaged throughout multiple personal attacks directed at her, including irrational numbers of dislikes addressed both to her and people agreeing with her. FYI this hateful behavior was triggered by disagreement on her nickname's origins and somehow escalated to an unhealthy obsession.

My message is not to reprimand you, but to draw your attention to an ugly undercurrent which is eroding our usually civilized exchange ;)

Keep it rocking!
Shömi
