    the rest of DK. She is from another country and culture, and wandered in here on mistaken assumptions, which backfired in a rather acrimonious incident. I commented to her

    ...diarist is from a very different culture than ours: Nur Alia is a Muslim name, and she is wearing a headscarf. If she lives in a Muslim country, I think her opinion probably fits in with her culture and religion, but not ours.

    To Nur: If you are here to practice English, or learn about American culture, I think this might not be the right place for you. This is a very political website, on the progressive, liberal end of the US political spectrum, and if you live in a conservative country with a different belief system, it might not be the best place to state your opinions, which seem to be pretty much opposite from ours...
