My right to not have to be bothered with it. Oh, wait! That's right - we worry more here about trolls than we do about loyal posters. f*ck, I keep forgetting where I'm posting 1/2 the time.

My culture, my right to joke about it however I want.
Incorrect.  There are limits.  I thought we agreed the crack was out-of-bounds.  An apology was made.  End of story as far as I'm concerned.

And what a sincere apology it was, as evidenced by:

yes it's African in the sense that it's located in Africa, and there are alot of Africans (as in blacks) that live there and make up the culture in Egypt.
But it's still an Arabic nation. Just like even though half of Turkey is in Europe, it doesn't really count as an Europeian nation due to their culture

It's funny you mentioned Turkey because it has been labeled everything from Eurasian to simply being a country in between Southeast Europe and the Middle East. Unlike the ambiguous technical location of Turkey, Egypt is clearly a part of the African continent.  A better example, if one is even needed, might be Guyana instead of Turkey. It's clearly located in South America and considered a South American country but its culture makes it also a part of the Carribbean. Hell, Sudan is populated by a majority of Sunni Muslims, like Egypt, it's official language is Arabic, like Egypt yet there is no squabble that Sudan is African.

Sudan is definatly a black country. Even in the arabic language when you want to say that someone is black you don't say he's black. You say he's Sudanese

And you catch that quote about Egypt in that page you sent?
"the largest in the Arab world"

Wow. In light of moving the conversation forward I'll stick to the original derailment and leave the red herring and non sequitar alone.

I'm not saying that Egypt is not part of "the Arab world". I'm arguing the point where you stated that "Egypt is more Arab than African". I'm also trying to say that Egypt is an African country that is also part of the Arab world. Much like my example of Guyana, because officially it is considered part of the Carribbean(often times being referred to as the only non-island Caribbean nation) because of it's culture and yet, it is also officially a South American nation.

If someone were to find themselves lost in Egypt and have to guide clueless rescuers to their location I guarantee you the word "Africa" before the word "Arab" will be uttered from their lips.

If you still don't see eye to eye then we'll have to agree to disagree on the matter.

Personally, I never wanted you here. You're just lucky we have a kiss-ass of an admin.

Hey, you asked.

Closed, just because I can, and I know it'll piss off the HeroChat Crackabrats. :) maybe I'll reopen it when this sudden influx of new trolls gets bored.
