Dear MikeMirzayanov before i sound like a brutal critic of your website,i will make 1 thing very clear that Codeforces is one of the best community i have ever been a part of.My day begin with it and ends with it.I love it.

But , i recently observed something which i found a bit inappropriate.Recently i read of rotavirus getting banned from this website.Ok great,you banned him for putting racist comments because he was making fun of cpers of a particular country.You claim you gave him 21 warnings before doing that.

Now my question?how many cpers you have banned to pass racist joke on Indians ,For example say Radewoosh.See he have made fun of Indians on these occasions

number 1 number 2 number 3 number 4 number 5

He is not a very special person to be treated specially.Just ban him as well.Rules should be same for everyone.

He's not really making fun of Indians in those posts though. He's just supporting problems being called problems instead of questions. He's not a native English speaker, but he likes things being called what they are in any language in this case English. If you think correcting peoples grammar is racist, please go outside and touch some grass.

      Correcting grammar != blatant racism. Rotavirus has had a long history of being toxic and blatantly racist. Radewoosh is just correcting mistakes in writing.

racism definition by Cambridge dictionary. (not hard to google) : policies, behaviours, rules, etc. that result in a continued unfair advantage to some people and unfair or harmful treatment of others based on race.

racism definition by Merriam-webster. : a belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

I don't see how pointing out that most Indians do a certain vocabulary error fits any of these definitions. Stop polluting codeforces with unnecessary blogs.

    Now go search the definition of question by Cambridge dictionary and Merriam-webster. You'll find that using the word question instead of problem isn't wrong either. So him pointing it out regularly is very annoying tbh.

      Whether question or problem is the correct term is completely unrelated to the point OP is trying to make. Please read the post properly next time.

        I was replying to the last line of your comment.

        I don't care about the original blog. It's spam but so is Radewoosh's unnecessary and wrong comment on question/problem.

Come on, man! Like really. Just see below the "Number-2" link you posted . There is this comment. If someone wants things to be a particular way and he supports it it doesn't necessarily implies that he/she has in any way particular bias against that community. Stop getting offended on every tiny thing and channelize this energy on something productive.

You called rotavirus as "he/him", how do you know it's not "she/her"?
