I should have reported it!!

I should have reported it!!
 
Yesterday tichorsergio uploaded an online exercise which was not his own creation. I sent him a private message to let him have time to delete it  ( not to threaten him) but I got this as an answer:
 
I īm using it for my own purposes, for that reason I created an online exercise and I īm not just scanning it. So what īs wrong with that? I īm not sharing it with anybody. And I would like you to know that the Cambridge ESOL Examinations are open to all people. If you want, you can download the material from their website. And never, never, dare to threaten me again! You poor Argentinian. tichorsergio
 
This is the link to the scanned exercises from one of KET Cambridge books:
 
 
 
Give me your opinions. I have just sent Victor a message.
 
Kisses,

DOn īt worry about what he said, though the last part sounds very pejorative.
Report to Victor  the copied exercise and he will do something with that.

Hello there,
 
I just answered the way you post your comment. I don īt like to be threatened. Oh, well that was it seemed to me.
 
Here īs your comment: "I like the ket exam but it looks familiar. isnt it from Cambridge publications of old exams.
Be careful!!"
 
You didn īt mention it.

she didn īt threaten you, however, you did with this phrase And never, never, dare to threaten me again! You poor Argentinian. tichorsergio..
I think your pejorative last words make me  answer this post,
Please don īt use that kind of vocabulary, this is a community for sharing not for fighting

I apologize for the words I used, you īre right. This is not the place for fighting. But the words he/she used "Be careful" sounded kind of rude to me too.

I guees it was not good at all to say:" You poor Argentinian", for me it sounds really bad... oh came on "paisano"... I think you misunderstood her phrase "be careful" for me it sounds like an advice...

Let īs keep the peace, cheers to everybody

You are 100% right, Julieta. And I offer my apologies again to everybody. I īm not rude at all, but those words bother me a lot.

In my opinion, you did well.Thumbs Up    First, I īm sure that he already knew that.   I think everybody knows this site conditions already.  Second,  He said that... he īs not sharing it with anybody , this site was made especially for that, wasn īt it?  so ... I don īt understand what he īs talking about.   And last, he shouldn īt act the way he did,  he could īve replied without being offensive.  I īm ashamed,  not all mexicans are the same! Disapprove

sometimes nationalities is a really complex topic, because you run the risk of sounding pejorative and offensive as in this case. now i think that i use "be careful" a lot a no one has never ever reacted this way. we are grown-ups, let īs act as such.

Anyone ever heard the word īvilification ī before? It is derived from īvilify ī. If not, I recommend looking it up in a dictionary - particularly you, tichorsergio.

In countries like Australia there is specific legslation against vilification & it is possible to wind up with a criminal record if you are charged with related offences.
