100 lashes is a lot of lashes.  I think that might include "whipped until unconscious, revived, and then whipped some more" a few times over.

It's really more of a intra-tribal thing. I don't think Saudis have a problem with racism against their Indonesian slaves servants.

They're going to need a lot of new whips if they're lashing all the racists in Saudi.

Well, on the one hand, before today I had never noticed doubled99 posting thing anything particularly misogynistic or even critical of feminism, so he could be branching out into trolldom.

On the other hand, before today I had doubled99  down as "homophobe x7, ignorant x2, previously on ignored list (then taken off),hostile-3, jerk-2, generic conservative derp x2, mocks people he disagrees with, fundamentalist Xtian,"  Given that much homophobia (posts in at least 7 different threads) and the general correlation between misogyny and homophobia, I'd say the odds are he's a rabid woman-hater I just hadn't caught yet.

Oh, and if anybody cares, I took him off my ignore list as part of a general amnesty program I do periodically.  I have no idea what he did to get ignored in the first place.  Every other trait I mention he earned AFTER I took him off ignore.

Might be of interest:

First, they mean Makkah (the modern spelling of  Mecca) not Makkak.

The male form abd means exactly the same as the American  n*gger originally did. That is to say, a black person or slave.

So the name  Abdullah (Abd Allah), usually translated as  servant of God, literally means God's n*igger.

There are many terms for God in Arabic:  The Brightness, The Compassionate etc.

Most Arabic names beginning with  abd are a variation on this: Abdulrahman, Abdulkhader etc.

illah
 is Arabic for god.  Al illah means   THE God,as opposed to any old pagan god.

Allah is a contraction of Al illah  and not specifically Muslim.  Arabic-speaking Christians call God Allah. (Some Muslim groups now lay claim to the word and do not like non-Muslims using it.)

The old Arabic name Abdalillah (abd al illah) is still quite common.

So now you know.

Well, on the one hand, before today I had never noticed doubled99 posting thing anything particularly misogynistic or even critical of feminism, so he could be branching out into trolldom.

On the other hand, before today I had doubled99  down as "homophobe x7, ignorant x2, previously on ignored list (then taken off),hostile-3, jerk-2, generic conservative derp x2, mocks people he disagrees with, fundamentalist Xtian,"  Given that much homophobia (posts in at least 7 different threads) and the general correlation between misogyny and homophobia, I'd say the odds are he's a rabid woman-hater I just hadn't caught yet.

Oh, and if anybody cares, I took him off my ignore list as part of a general amnesty program I do periodically.  I have no idea what he did to get ignored in the first place.  Every other trait I mention he earned AFTER I took him off ignore


I'm flattered. I'm afraid I have no memory of you or any of your posts, unfortunately.

Usually there are more farkers with a sense of humor in threads such as these.
