Well folks IC is growing with its membership

by Bavafa

And it seems it has attracted many cyber thugs in recent days and months

The other day, reading yet another news about Helen Thomas who was ousted from her job for making a personal comment about Israel and Zionist, I was thinking of writing a short blog regarding freedom of speech in America and how it is slowly and covertly being curtailed by special interest. The message in mind for the blog was really to praise IC for still be so very open to all ideas and thoughts and a bastion for Israel bashers just as much as IRI bashers, all very good in my opinion.

Well, it seems this bastion has many new members recently, some times added daily with strong but naïve message to boycott IC, a polite and covert way to exercise the same censorship as it is done with force and brutality in Iran on a daily basis.

Here is my message to them: Bring it on!!!!

To all thugs and bullies; we embrace you, shout as much as you want, nag as much as you want, cuss as much as you want, create as many userID as you want, your attempt to shuts down only helps our resolve.


So bring it on buddy

And with that note, my answer to your boycott message, I am donating $$$ to IC and ask all who are financially can to do so as long as JJ stays clear special interest.

Blockage problem?? Hope not in the wrong hole now. you know... down at the bottom?:))

I think we are taking this issue way too seriously,. Not that i do not appreciate for Mehrdad for bringing it to our attention, but We are being too paranoid about it. You know, We have been doing our thing and they have been doing theirs. The "flagging" option has been used more frequently that should have been , and still beats out all other options to keep the Jerks away. so USE IT:)))

Let's Not immitate those "other" websites. Let's maintain our originality and our way of doing things. Using the options available to us to keep trouble away wisely, is enough to keep us policing the site they way we should.



Suggestion to increase viewership

by Pahlevan on

Like David ET said, implementing features similar to some features on facebook and other successful sites can increase viewership dramatically.

For example, how about adding a 'like' or 'positive' option for every blog and comment? similar to facebook, balatarin or digg ... so that users can give thumbs up to quality material.


Boycott guy = amgw4 = alirezag

by Anonymouse on

These guys all had blockage problem except this latest re-intarnation as boycott guy who JJJ is letting spam the site at will.  Oh well.  I couldn't trace alirezag to his previous ID. 

Everything is sacred



by Souri on

I believe CA was a reference to Capitan Ayhab, but this isn't him whom I was talking about. I had another person in mind.


The good behavior of the people, warms our heart and make us thankful.....  And the bad ones, just make us to recognize and appreciate the good ones!



by yolanda on

This guy's name means leader on a ship!

I am not saying......he is the boycot dude......it is a just wild wild guess....


Many thanks to all for your support in any form it may be

by Bavafa on

And since I have no clue who CA is.. any hint would be appreciate it, not that it will make much difference as I pay no attention to those bullies, which ever side they may be


Anahid Hojjati

Souri jan, CA is the one you were guessing.

by Anahid Hojjati on



Who is CA?

by Souri on

Sorry Yolanda and Anahid, I still didn't get who is CA.

But maybe he is the same person as I have guessed. For sure, this person is not an IRI supporter. Simply because:

1) The IRI supporter mebers of the site wish the site be runing as always so they can come here to state their opinions and oppose the opposition

2) The IRI supporter not-membes of the site, don't really care about what's going on in this site! There are so many other Iranian sites which are much more anti-IRI.

The good behavior of the people, warms our heart and make us thankful.....  And the bad ones, just make us to recognize and appreciate the good ones!

Anahid Hojjati

Bavafa, I am pledging too since I am so sick of their mentality

by Anahid Hojjati on

Dear Bavafa, I second your pledge (or is it third) because we really have to stop this mentality in some Iranians to be like little dictators. It is bad enough that we have IRI, now in Diaspora, we have got some people acting like little dictators and trying to get away with it.

Anahid Hojjati

Souri,are you sure?

by Anahid Hojjati on

So Souri, you think it is ca? You offered some good reasons why you think it is ca. I think sometimes it actually has opposite effect of what the spammer wants. Like this morning, I was busy and I did not have time to comment but I did it since the spammer had just been active, just to show that we are not going to let some coward dictate to us our online activities.


I think we all need to keep in mind

by Bavafa on

That the danger is not really in anyway posed by this couple of have-nothing-better-to-do folks that may have a beef with JJ or the rest of us that like to speak what we believe. The true khak o khasahak (if that was the term) are these people for trying to shut other's voices.

But if we really stop for a second and think about what IC has provided us, a venue that does not exist in Iran and many other places in the world and are getting fewer and fewer in US, then we can truly appreciate it. Most if not all other forums even in US are leaning one way or the other and there are definitely subjects that are getting harder and harder to talk about, namely Israel, whereas IC has remained relatively free and open and for that JJ has my gratitude.

In any case, I followed up with my pledge and I hope you do if you are in a situation that can afford it.



thanks Mehdad.

by yolanda on

Are 1st 2 letters of his name "Ca"? :O)


Honest observation

by Souri on


Very good point.

But I didn't have to scratch my head for too long, to guess who is this spamer!

He is not an IRI supporter, as he is pretending.

Just try to think and remember who is the person who hate this site and has  issues with JJ.

That paranoid spammer who writes long articles and have been blocked 100 times but always come back with another user name to say the same BS.

Just ignore him.  

The good behavior of the people, warms our heart and make us thankful.....  And the bad ones, just make us to recognize and appreciate the good ones!



by yolanda on

.....well, a 7 year old little girl has galvanized IC and left the boycot dude in the dust.........


من یکی‌ که دیگه زبونم مو در آورد


I really hope that one day IC will undergo a major overhaul. I really don't like it when one can register and presto, she can do all sorts of things. You might find my opinion exclusionist, elitist, this ist, that ist, or even Bolshevist; which is fine. I respect your view as long as you are not a SPAMist. 

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.


David ET

Taking this chance to advise JJ !!!

by David ET on

To keep IC with times, it must soon have features beyond blog where people can initiate short status in few words and sentences (such as FACEBOOK and TWITTER), forming groups etc. (A Social Network)

IC is not as live as present times require and by looking at number of Iranians on facebook, you can notice that facebook is now a major competition. 

This is what myspace found out and did but by then it was too late and lost so much of its market and unable to get them back... 



Very accurate and adequate blog, Bavafa jan,

by Hajminator on

This morning, I hadn't time to write what you wrote. I just suggested the boycot guy to setup his/her value to 'GFY'.

I send them this particular video for each one of the dummy boycot guys, with love.
