Be advised that the vast majority of recent new members have turned out to be some variety of "spam-bot" ... in other words not human.

I'm not saying that YOU are a 'bot I just want you to understand why many folks here may be hesitant to interact with you much at first. (its not personal)

Having said all that I'll take the optimistic route and assume you are in fact a real person!

:D

Son zamanlardaki yeni üyelerin büyük çoğunluğunun bir çeşit "spam-bot" olduğu ortaya çıktı ... başka bir deyişle insan değil.

SİZİN bir robot olduğunuzu söylemiyorum, sadece buradaki birçok insanın ilk başta sizinle etkileşim kurmakta neden tereddüt ettiğini anlamanızı istiyorum. (kişisel değil)

Tüm bunları söyledikten sonra iyimser bir yol izleyeceğim ve sizin aslında gerçek bir insan olduğunuzu varsayacağım !

:D

nice song, but the animations are degrading. Turks are not Arabs and they are not barbarians, I think Europe thinks so. If you know them, you know that they are very sincere people. I'm sorry if I said something offensive

yes sorry, that is true, cartoons back in the 1990s definitely were more stereotyped. i did not realize what turkey really was like until i started started studying history more as an adult.

i started researching and collecting ancient coins, and learned that they were invented by the lydians of west turkey about 2700 years ago

You can look at Turks from every corner of history. For example, let's look at Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's Turkey, which the whole world admires. A person who conquers hearts with his innovations and reforms, but with his courage. He opened his heart to all children and people.

Turkish music was so in during the late 18th century. Mozart wrote an ending to one of his sonatas with the instruction alla turca and one of the variations of Beethoven's Ode to Joy was clearly inspired by Turkish band music.
