Thanks Netwit, that's good information. I got a second anonymous rep comment in French from another person immediately after my last post above - less points on that one so I think that means it was somebody newer with less posts count. So I guess it's either two people or one person with a new sock-puppet doing it.

That second message I got translated to a very subtle threat so now I'm debating with myself about reporting both of them.

Such nonsense with the rep comments posted as subtle threats is just another reason why I'm not interested and not sympathetic towards a cause of fools who resort to such immature tactics.

No one is implying all this important Quebec stuff shouldnt be talked about the jist of this topic is do we really need 7-8 topics all going on about the same subject, it gets kinda confusing trying to remember which topic i posted which response, i too am all for a Quebec Sticky..

PS. PB. What fight is this you are fighting?And what help do you need?

You guys are funny talking about how Quebecers are polluting this forum by starting all these threads.

Here are the Quebec related threads on this forum (first two pages):

Make the bad man stop - started by Mikey who is from AB but lives in Tx (yes, this counts as another one now!)

Is Quebec independence legitimate - started by Ilikemike who is from BC but lives in DC

Neverendum - started by limelightkid (no idea where he is from but not from Quebec obviously)

Neocolonialism - started by bigbubbles from Denmark

What will you do if Qc separates - started by Bonjour - yes he is from Quebec

Is Canada better off without Quebec - started by modernrebel, orginally from Qc but hasn't lived here in a while

Retired head of Liberal party says QC will separate - limelightkid again (non-QC)

Quebec too harsh on anglos - started babyblue who lives in Ottawa

Is Quebec the best place in NA - started by valsteele who lives on the US west coast

What will happen to house prices if QC separates - yunemus, not from Quebec either

Quebec independence movement - transhmanist, looks to be American

French Canadians conquered by the English - bigbubbles from Denmark again

Careful there A/J; your prejudicial predisposition to accuse Les Anglais may be showing just a tad.

No one said anything about these threads being started by Quebecers. The complaint is about the plethora of them, regardless of origin.

But why do you suppose that is not the case? The majority of people on here are still non-Quebecers by a wide margin. Why is it that most of you guys prefer to discuss Quebec on here than, say, the diversification of Alberta's economy away from non-renewable natural resources?

Even if (let's say) the people from Quebec weren't interested in taking part, there are more than enough non-Quebecers on here for you guys to have a fulsome discussion. If only you (and others) were interested...

I have to be honest and say I did this without malice. I've made my opinions clear on the numerous threads that I strongly believe Quebec has the right to decide their own fate, and ultimately I support the quest to protect the unique qualities that the Quebecois bring to making Canada the place that it was, is and will continue to be.

My comment was driven from the fact that I just didn't like coming onto this part of the forum anymore because what had started as an intellectual conversation(s) has devolved into a US style entrenchment of ideals where whatever one person says is immediately dismissed because they're not "one of us". Along with open hostility and passive aggressive commenting designed specifically to get a rise and stoke the fight. If I want stupid myopic polarized opinion/discussion, I just need to walk out my door. There's more than enough of that here in TX.

Long story short, the Canada forum wasn't very fun, and I miss the way that it used to be.

To be brutally honest, I think the turn things have taken kind of speaks to the weakness of public discourse and issue debates in Anglo-Canada.

Having lived about half my life there and half my life in Quebec, there is definitely a striking difference on how much people get into debating the issues (or not).

With the possible exception of Newfoundlanders, Anglo-Canada isn't a place where people engage on "the issues" very much. On the other hand, Quebec tends to debate issues to death.

As nature abhors a vacuum (is that the right expression?), then the hole tends to get filled with what's there.

On this forum (and elsewhere I suppose), the Canadian discourse tends to fill up disproportionately with stuff from Quebec as a result.

Well A/J; this was in fact, NOT the fact was it?

Were all of these threads actually started by Quebecers and different individual Quebecers; myself and others would probably consign far more import to them.

Well, you're on the right track with your last sentence!
