Yes op, you are a good man, and i support this your proposition bro and i believe majority of us here will support these your idea. But bro, the moderators especially jarus will water down your efforts down. He will even go to the extent of closing this thread if he sees it, cos, he hasnt seen it yet thats why it still strives. Jarus is the number bigot on nairaland and yet he is a moderator, in these case what do u expect bro. Nothing but tribal fight galore. Seun needs to get rid of jarus asap before jarus ruins his site.

Tribalism has come to stay. The early you get used to it, the better!

However, its Funny that in Nigeria, it's not as obvious as what I see on Nairaland. Sometimes I wonder if its the same country being talked about here. The mods should however look into it. I know it's not easy for them, considering they may have other jobs, but they are to minimize nairaland tribalism.

I suggest also, the antispam software to ban any person that uses, Yoruba, yibos, Northerner, retardeen, etc for minimum of 26 yrs smiley.

I don talk my own finish

You cannot resolve tribalism without reconciliation.

While some people perceived that injustice of the past (Nigeria / Biafra War ) should be recognized as genocide and apology rendered. To the extent they think that the highest office in the land should be given to them by National Consensus as was in 1999 when a Convicted Coup plotter was pardoned allowed to be President to compensate for the injustice of June 12.

On the other hand the other party see the war as necessary to the unification of the country and that Biafra is suffering from self inflicted genocide and should take responsibility for their action as everything goes in war including starving children in an attempt to force them into submission.

The only options left in Nigeria is for God to help the North to find Oil in commercial quantity and allow this fvcking marriage to be dissolved by consensus and peacefully.

Second option is Confederation, where each region is allowed to control their resources and pay little tax to sustain a weak center.

Hey my brother, let us forget about this biafra issue of a thing, the war has come and gone. Casualties and lost counted, we have to move on bro. These is the reason why i hate history as a subject in schools. Although history helps us to recount the past so that we dont make mistakes, but, human beings use history as revenge, what a misplaced priority. I will not be surprised when a biafran would want to take revenge in future because we do revisit history. I will not be surprised when a jews in future would want to wipe out germans of the surface of these earth cos of what adolf hitler did to them all in the name of history. I will not be surprised when japan in future will want to destroy a whole state in america cos of what america did to them (hiroshima). Bros, we should learn to forget the past and move forward.

@OP: Thunder faya ya mouth!!!!

Do you want to destroy this site?? Tribalism is NL's 2nd name, any attempt to end it will be an exercise in futility. Tribalism is Good for SEUN's bizness, so for making a suggestion that will slow down bizness, you're an enemy!!

Didn't you see the way the MODs clamped down on:

1) 1st to comment peeps

2) Garri activists

3) "Sent from".....etc

Stopping tribal fights is also that easy, but it will ßξ bad for bizness

So Once again, THUNDER FAYA YA MOUTH!!!

Happy New Year in Advance... grin

Still on 8th... Baba God is GOOD

@ post:
Are you trying to say Chief Awolowo was not a "visionary" leader when he introduced tribalism in nigeria's political trenches? The late sage remains above his peers because he new that tribalism holds the future in nigeria and he/she who ignores tribalism does so at his/her own peril;;; if in doubt, ask the Igbo who ignored tribalism in the 1960's.

The same man who was vilifying an ibo woman for wanting to get with a Yoruba man?

Wonders shall never cease.

kulyie: exactly including omo ibo and other sexist statements.thank you for that

'omo ibo' is sexist? I didn't know that, that term was gender related sha.

Anyway, are omo ibos not the children of ibos? Omo ibo is omo ibo just as omo Yoruba is omo Yoruba. Nothing derogatory about that jo!

Desola, i understand what you are saying dear. Yeah, i may sound like a hypocrite, but, just go to my original monicker donchris333, if u see any post that depicts me as denigrating another man's tribe or their leaders, come post them here. I registered on nairaland in 2009 and i have never for one day cursed awolowo, tafawa balewa, sarduana and other leaders from other tribes. I got pissed of with berem because i have noticed that she indirectly mocks the igbos and our leaders with the same yoruba guys doing so. You, i see how you defend your tribe, even going to the extent of calling seun's bluff. To imagine that berem is married and everytime she's online looking for one lover or the other, to the extent of denigrating her tribe and people because she really needs a lover. She can get lover from any tribe in any means she like, but, denigrating my tribe to do so is unacceptable by me. That was why i had to pick on her and i will still pick on her if she returns back with that monicker. You need to know that girl, she aint gat value. Anyway happy new year.

The politicians of all tribes are united with a single purpose of looting Nigeria. The citizens are divided. Trying to claim some sort of group ethnic superiority, when today's world competitive world only recognizes individual brilliance. Nigerian's are displaying the symptoms of a deprived population fighting over meagre shared resources. The truth however is that unless you are a direct relative to a politician, it does not matter whether the Governor or President is from your region. You will likely benefit nothing.

As per Nairaland, i have long concluded that it is just part of their business model. The e-tribal wars drive traffic like nothing else. We know all the tribal derogatory terms, but the site finds words like PPPorn more offensive and have software that removes such immediately. No censorship of Northerner, ofenmmanu or Igbo. There is no flag button to warn censors of abusive language. Nairaland is using the same tactics as the politicians are using: Divide and conquer.

I was pleasantly surprised when Seun stepped in to stop the bashing of Chinua Achebe, by a tribal motivated campaign. This shows that there is still some sense of responsibility in the forum. I would advise the owners to begin to clamp down on the tribal abuse that goes on in this site. Most human beings are moderates. Most sensible people do not like what is going on on the site. Topics are derailed with tribal bashing all the time with no consequence to the perpetrators.

As a business man, I think the site should make adjustments before a competitor comes up with something better and devoid of tribal trolls. You have to be pro-active. I think the site should occasionally do customer surveys to find out what the users think.
