I'm not sure what point you are making - do you feel that xenophobia (it has to be racist by default) is the root of this issue?

Or do you invite comment on the link?
Somalia is a hotbed of all sorts of crime so do you blame them.
How can they possibly be Racist and Xenophobic, they are not white are they?
You don't have to be white to be racist.
Bang a different drum AOG :) you've worn that one out...

According to a lot on here Danny, that's not true.
danny
I believe aog's comment was tongue in cheek. :-)
Exactly Danny.

It's interesting, but unsurprising that people all over don't want poor foreigners in their country.
Morning retrocop, tongue in cheek comments have fallen out of favour here recently.

I think AOG meant it, as he has for the last decade.
Well said Ed !

Ab Editor - //Morning retrocop, tongue in cheek comments have fallen out of favour here recently. //

I have experienced and commented on many times the simple fact that irony does not travel well in printed communication - especially if used by someone who does not tend to use it often enough to be a recognised character trait.

It can, as you advise, be better left alone, and posters sticking to what they mean, unless they can make their irony un-missable, which can be done, but then becomes a bit clunky, and thus removes the point.

divebuddy //I'm not sure that AB Editor should take part in general debates. It sort of puts a damper on things, doesn't it. //

Do you mean similar to when the teacher comes and sits at your dinner table and start trying to join in the conversation?

No, I don't think so.
Can't see anything wrong with Ed commenting on posts.
You mean it's like you can't be rude to people divebuddy? Hey, why not try to contribute positively instead.

I've been contributing to this site freely for a very long time, so I don't think I'll worry about it "dampening" your experience. I thought you might enjoy the discussion?

Cheers though!
DB...well, it hasn't put you off making a post has it ?

I welcome the appearance of Ed. once in a while...it just proves that we are not being overseen by a faceless robot !
