You seem to have a nice web site, but could you not have shown some originality?

The above web page seems like a word-for-word copy and paste from badaga.org.... icon_rolleyes.gif

Such a shame... Also, losing the ads would be good too... icon_smile.gif

Come on, dear Dubai badaga brothers, you can do better than plagiarize our own....

Dear Asnhan [Ootyshiva],

I am not sure, what one to one similarity, you have observed about Dubaibadaga.org in line with badaga.org.

To me it appears, to be good effort, by Dubai people. Anyway, I am of the opinion that if we cannot apprecuiate their effort, at least we shall not scornfully say their efforts are plagarizing.

Lets hail all badagefforts, as long as they do not cause any trouble to others.

Dear Mr. Mathan, if you had looked carefully at the words on the web page link I had posted, you would have seen what I meant.

If the IBA people had anything to do with the DBA website then I can understand... otherwise then its just plagiarizing, no matter who does it. No scorn here, just encouragement to be original.

Dear Ashnan [ ootyshiva],

Thanks for reply. I understand your feelings. I just felt your words might hurt DBA

My view points.

1. Since the effort is help to Badagas by various contact/ Communication means, I suggest, we hail the efforts even though it appears similar.

2. I presume, IBA members across globe & Admin team might have better collective Knowledge in reference to Dubai collective KNowledge alone. Therefore the DBA has not done any damage to IBA. If you happend to see the previous versions of DBA Home page they had a word ' Ondhu savira Aagali'.. periodocally appearing - an effort in design idea that was better.

3. Perhaps since all of us are Badagas - the DBA might be trying to emulate the big brother IBA and hence if younger brother resembles Eleder one, let us see it as ' family similarities'

4. I hope, no one would mind if 'brothers' appear similar.

Lt us any way, support all the web administration members in words atleast. .

Thanks for your sharp observation and pointing the similarities.

Cheers
