Don't mistake the workings of one small website with the attitude of a whole nation. Down that path idiocy lies.
Since you know more about the whole nation than I do, it would be more constructive if you would cite a website with unencumbered classifieds in English (preferably classifieds in general, not just personals). Thanks in advance.
And it would be better if you considered that it's not this country that censors things but the owners of the website.
You're repeating yourself. Since you refuse to offer any constructive suggestion as requested, I hope you don't mind if your reputation as a valuable source of information about the country goes down a notch.
I never said i knew about such sites, I never claimed to I just advised you, quite politely , not to blame the country but look at the owners of the site. But it sounds like you're on some kind of conspiracy kick so I'll leave it at that.
Well, you claim to be in a position to advise others about the issues of the country, while not knowing enough about it to offer any constructive suggestion regarding the topic. Not only that, but your claim of politeness while using the word "idiocy" is of questionable sincerity at best.
For the record, I never accused the country of censorship. I was just observing that, within a limited context, I experienced being more restricted in one place than I did in another. That much is factual. The words I used, "strange to think..." is different from saying, "I hereby claim that...", in fact it suggests that the opposite of the given assertion has more merit (like, "strange to think that a Kenyan can get elected president of the US"). I'd rather believe that there exist unencumbered classifieds here, but if there are not, then there's nothing wrong in pointing out the strangeness of it. But I'm not here to teach English, or deep-end on people's "hot button issues" (real or imagined), so, as you say, may as well leave it at that.
Since the consensus seems to be that the Tealit problems I noticed are typical, and nobody knows of any alternative sites for classifieds (general, not just personals), then there's no point in further discussion (unless people want to pursue a group-grope around their hot-button issues or whatever).
Thanks to those who provided information on my inquiry.
