We went to school and studied English Comprehension for a reason. Davidoguy or (whatever his handle is) labelled Igbo traders as habitual scammers. It is called deductive reasoning. While we call for truce, let's not try to downplay his insult which was loud and clear.
My position remains that he needs to work on himself and fix whatever is troubling his personal life.

Using a good hosting like a2hosting.com is as attached in the image plus domain name (.com) registration of $14.95.
For web4africa, domain (.com.ng) is ₦1600 while hosting is ₦600 to ₦4,500 per month depending on choice.
A2hosting will be faster in page loading compared to web4africa especially when much people are trying to access the site simultaneously. A2hosting will also be easier to setup forum as they have lesser restrictions on server side scripting modules (php functions) that can be loaded out of the box.

n3xt:It’s depends where the hosting is coming from. It’s annoying for these guys came from only God knows to disturb our peace ✌️ here. This section is the most respected section for mature intellectuals professionals shared their ideas practically with us. This section is practical oriented institute to us. I hope you guys understand that.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by n3xt(m): 11:27pm On Dec 29, 2020|
I suggest we go for A2hosting (36 months).
We want a forum with:
- ability to upvote, downvote and report posts.
- supports peer-to-peer moderation
- push notification
- support web/mobile platform
- gather data-driven insights to help us identify areas for improvement.
- supports premium user group
- simplified join page.
Thanks for offering to help.

The post you referenced was one the young man had edited. I have quoted his original post. Look at those who replied him earlier and you'd see the difference.
This issue has dragged on for a reason. But then it's surprising some folks don't see nothing wrong with certain statements. A very good way of checking if a statement is discriminatory is by inserting a word that describes your person and see if it still hurts.
From his initial post, I'd give certain examples with blank spaces. Fill them in with a personal word and see if it's right.
I know all races have people of low IQ but we need to be weary of ____ race
I know all Nigerian ethnicities have ugly people but we need to be weary of ______
I know all Nigerian ethincities have poorly trained youths but we need to be weary of ____
You can go on and on. How anyone can justify such statement is truly surprising. Of course he cheekily did not name an ethnicity but even a 3 year old knows what he meant. If folks did not quickly stand up to that statement, some others would have been happy to cherry pick more examples to paint people of that ethnicity in a bad light.
What's more annoying is when you call out such statements, people defend their stance by saying I have bought goods from someone from that ethnicity therefore I'm not a tribalist. Or my cook is from that ethnicity therefore I'm not a tribalist. Sounds familiar? Even Shekau can give such examples to excuse terrorism.
Abroad where he says he's coming from, if such statements are made in reference to him as a Nigerian or a black man, he would rightly regard it as racial profiling or racism. But the little man is here playing ostrich.
There's a difference between being matured and being a baby. I don't need an apology but if he saw the need to edit his post, that means he knows he erred. Maturity is being a bigger man and owning up to ones faults. We all make mistakes.
My point is simple- what's wrong is wrong and there's no excusing it. You were duped by one person does not mean you drag a whole ethnicity into it.

Baba Kopell, this move is long overdue.
When we read about negative behavior online, it is generally assumed that bad behavior is fairly common and unavoidable in online forums and communities.
While this is partly true, I strongly disagree with the point of view that this is the nature of online forums and communities. This is not true.
Just as Egunmogaji2 rightly put and I quote below:
The truth is that the admin of a community, the posting policies and the moderators set the tone and are directly responsible for the tone of the forum - not the trolls.
If the admin/mods/forum policies chose not to bat an eyelid, we will continue experience annoying behaviors.
We can either continue to live with it. Or make a difference. We cannot chose both.

Shut your dirty mouth, you are not a Northerner, just another Troll using multiple I.D's to waste your own time here.
All of you using multiple I.D's to post rubbish here, can cry from today till tomorrow, you wont get any apology because You are Nobody.
@Davodyguy did not insult any Igbo person, he even said specifically that "ALL TRIBES have criminals among them" and why you guys think ALL TRIBES mean Igbo tribe, is best understood by yourselves?!.
I am still looking for the word "Igbo", in his post and until someone shows me, they can point fingers at themselves, if they feel guilty.
You cant bully him into making an apology, when he has not done or said anything wrong.
If the matter touch you and you are feeling guilty, change your ways
Please keep posting all your nonsense, it wont stop anyone from asking or answering questions about building.
The joke is on you and your nuisance value.
After all your insults on other tribes, did you hear anyone of them fighting you or asking you to Apologise?
The Motto of Guardian Newspaper says: Conscience is an Open wound.
Ofcourse, if you are guilty, you will always be afraid, even when no one is chasing you.

InvertedHammer:Precisely @ Bolded.
While the actions of the trolls are condemnable, Oga davido has shown to be no different. I have studied his disposition on the matter and see that he is not such a gentleman afterall. In sane climes people lose thier jobs for something as little as a sexist or racist remark . You don't need to be trolled to man up to your slip up
He has told one side of the story . . . . Irony of the matter is that the other two sides might contrast completely with his current assertions.
Case in point , oga is currently claiming to have paid cost of original pipes but got supplied low quality ones. Are you sure what you paid is really the cost of Original ? How much be original? How much did you pay?
People like this are the type to want a Lambourgini for the price of prius.

Excuzeme:You were attempting to make sense until you got to this point.
The second paragraph is like asking an Okonjo Iweala or a Nigerian Neurosurgeon in diaspora to change her /his ways because he/she feels insulted about a denigrating comment labeling all Nigerians scammers.

It's obvious the same person is trolling with different accounts, you can tell if you read all his post closely.
His Nobody! his nobody!! but talk of hosting a new domain is in progress, it simply means you guys are making nobody somebody.
If NL Admin can flag his MAC addresses he will need a new phone or computer to visit this site.
All that being said, stereotyping is unhealthy; I would avoid it in a public discuss.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by olaitoro(m): 6:33am On Dec 30, 2020|
Oga David have subtly edited his post.
To some people defending him that nothing is wrong with his original post why did he edit it.
Mr David did not handle the situation well, he would have come out to readdress the forum and point out that he has edited the previous post.
For the apology aspect, davodyguy should apologize to Igbo nation for making such a demeaning and derogatory remarks on them.
Attached is the original post of davodyguy, it reeks of tribalism and everything is wrong with that post.
From the principles of deduction and induction reasoning, following his first statement even an idiot will see the shading of Igbo nation unless the person feigned ignorant or he is a hypocrite.
Davodyguy should do the needful.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by vanbonattel: 7:00am On Dec 30, 2020|
Each and every one of us knows the truth, but we apply our judgement in Nigeria through an ethnic view. There's no way any one can excuse what Davodyguy wrote in the beginning, what he uttered are pure tribalistic sentiments about a private business transaction which is still not concluded.
. Many here have made good comments because they want the matter to bend but people who had always wanted to kill this thread are here saying he shouldn't apologise even when they know he was very wrong. Bad thing is bad
, did he really edit/modify the first post?
Because those people demanded him to do either of 3 things, they said he should go back and edit/modify the post, or offer an apology, or delete the offending post as a condition for peace .
@ Davodyguy, if you have modified your original post, tell us so we can resolve this matter. It was your strong headedness that has dragged this matter this far. Your attitude is not helping matters.
Why didn't you modify the offending post since Saturday when all these started? Why did you have to wait till it became a bigger issue?

olaitoro:you guy's should stfo
Even if some tribes are asking of apology it shouldn't be 4rm u igbos
Upon all the way your people insult tinubu call yoruba afonja bla bla bla u don ever see them asking of apology?

”If you pit a good performer against a bad system, the system will always win almost every time.”
We can either make a difference or make another excuse for failure.
Trolling is just one of the “too many” reasons a new platform is needed.

Badgers14:Good day Boss.
What brought out the question is due to this quote from one of my previous post telling me it’s not advisable to build on such land ...
Yes o.And also I’m planning on building a three bedroom bungalow but on a second thought someone’s saying Ima get tired of the bungalow and I should go for a Duplex instead . What’s your say about that sir .?
Though cash inflow won’t be a problem by the special grace of God na to just put more sleepless nights to my hustle lols
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by Godisgreatest1: 7:37am On Dec 30, 2020|
Now it's 5 days, we are still on 'tribal' matters.
From tribal matters to starting a new platform.
So what happens to this platform?
(1) If the post has been edited, it justifies it has been offensive all this while! For goodness sake, if I post a comment and later modify it, it means there's something 'worth correcting' in the comment. There is No correction without a mistake.
(2) Starting a new platform exalts the offended. It means you are running away from something. I won't support it because it isn't necessary.
We are adults please let's not forget. The conversations here of recent has been far from interesting not to talk of decent. Over a comment made since on Saturday. You can all continue with your 'tribal' war and be fulfilled by the end of today. Thank you.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by Dijita: 7:40am On Dec 30, 2020|
Please we don't want to engage in tit for tat here.
This is not politic section. Please handle with maturity or disregard them
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by bayo2018: 7:41am On Dec 30, 2020|
Thanks for the response
also someone told me ima get tired of the bungalow and I should go for a Duplex instead

What’s your day about that sir .?
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by Dijita: 7:43am On Dec 30, 2020|
Please count me in as an investor if you guys are ready as long as you promised to include ignore button
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by vanbonattel: 7:46am On Dec 30, 2020|
someone should confirm that the offending comments has been edited by the offender. This is a condition for peace to reign as they said on Saturday.
.The people adding fuel to the fire by saying that the people complaining are wrong to call out a wrong comments. no problem.
BTw. Are you aware that a new thread was opened to continue this discussion since this has been contaminated
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by EgunMogaji2: 7:47am On Dec 30, 2020|
And it’s voluntary to join anyways.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by vanbonattel: 7:50am On Dec 30, 2020|
Everyone wants peace and this should end by this morning,
. Hopefully, davidyguy should clarify if he modified the offensive comments.
Normally. The mods should have removed the tribal slurs since Saturday when complaints started but they chose to take sides by banning complainants. This is so bad.
|Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by Fvckhypocrite(f): 7:56am On Dec 30, 2020|
