Genuine as in never posting articles from newspapers and then asking what do you think? plus forever pasting stuff from Wiki or Google as an answer.
Well if you only believe what people post, and don't believe any links to news sites etc. I would argue that's dangerous in itself. but that's another topic.

Back to the point we got arguing about. J2 stated that the Muslim immigrants as a whole were always complaining about the way the UK is run (if I've understood her short message correctly)
I can state that the Muslims I've come across have been genuinely hospitable and hard-working, and a far cry from being whingers. Now (and I repeat myself) this doesn't mean there aren't "bad eggs", especially the hard-line preachers and terrorists. But the majority I come into contact with (and I knew a few both in Oxford and Nottingham) have been fine. If J2 has experience that contradicts this, then fine. If she elaborates I'll read and no doubt believe and be shocked. But I do object to a phrase "xxx are horrible people" and then no examples. Having said that, I could do my own distortion and state Brits are sex criminals, based on all the horrific crimes recorded over the years. But I'd be wrong (and yes it probably won't be the first time).

Odd comment after saying this in an earlier post in

Foreign cultures
I don't agree. You seem to have a very biased view.

and

It seems strange when you have not been in the UK for many years and don't want to return why you feel the need to knock it? Of course that is just MY opinion

I don't see anything odd in either of those posts. Would you care to enlighten me? Why do you find them odd?
