Because I was accused of being a post-modern Nazi and a post-modern Zionist in about the same time, I took a decision unanimously held as being not modern at all

True and a bit silly story. I = your's truly

This should be interesting...

By "not modern" do you mean "ancient"? "Quaint"? "Futuristic"?

By "not modern" do you mean "ancient"? "Quaint"? Probably this, old fashioned "Futuristic"?

was the decision you made not to pay them any attention? not to care? to maintain a dignified silence?

Since it is almost a month from the last question, it is time to put this baby to rest. So:

Rbruma

I know it's frustating when you don't get any questions on a puzzle but maybe you could post a recap and announce that you've done so in the chatroom.

If you really want to spoyle the puzzle then maybe you could post the solution

Rbruma, I wasn't here for most of this puzzle, but I would like to work on it some, if you don't want to just drop it. In case this is not actually going to be spoiled...

Did someone accuse you of these things because they misinterpreted what you did? Were you accused of being a Nazi because they thought something you did was racist? war-mongering?

Is the 'post-modern' appellation simply to do with the fact that it is past the heyday of those groups? or is there something more there that we need to delve into?

Did one thing you did lead to both accusations? or are there actually two (or more) actions involved?

Peter,

It's not much to recap, but just to re-post the statement:

Because I was accused of being a post-modern Nazi and a post-modern Zionist in about the same time, I took a decision unanimously held as being not modern at all

Kalira,

Did someone accuse you of these things because they misinterpreted what you did? Yope Were you accused of being a Nazi because they thought something you did was racist? Yope war-mongering?

Is the 'post-modern' appellation simply to do with the fact that it is past the heyday of those groups? Yes or is there something more there that we need to delve into? The essential fact was where I have been accused of all these. You might want to focus on that

Did one thing you did lead to both accusations? Yes or are there actually two (or more) actions involved? Noish

You said that a friend made the accusation, but also that the same person did not make both accusations. Was each accusation made by a different friend? Were both accusers present when you did the action?

Was your reaction to the first accusation what led to your being accused of the second?

Was whatever you did related to Jews? Israel? Or was it interpreted by your friend(s) as being related to either?

Was either accuser present when you did the action? If so, which one? If neither was present, is it relevant how they found out about your action?

Can we assume this whole situation (your action -> accusation1 -> accusation2 -> your decision)occured within the space of about a minute or so from start to finish? If not, was there a significant span of time between your action and the first accusation? between the first and second accusations? between the accusations and your decision?

Was the second accusation a reaction to the first? (e.g. Accuser 1 made his/her accusation, and Accuser 2 begged to differ and had his/her own conclusion [accusation 2])

Was either accuser present when you did the action? If so, which one? If neither was present, is it relevant how they found out about your action? Neither was present, and it is somewhat relevant

Can we assume this whole situation (your action -> accusation1 -> accusation2 -> your decision) Indeed, this is the correct chain of events occured within the space of about a minute or so from start to finish? No, from the time of MY relevant action to the accusations (and between the accusations, and also between the accusations and my decision): months, if not years If not, was there a significant span of time between your action and the first accusation? between the first and second accusations? between the accusations and your decision?

Was the second accusation a reaction to the first? (e.g. Accuser 1 made his/her accusation, and Accuser 2 begged to differ and had his/her own conclusion [accusation 2]) No to these and to the rest left unanswered

Is a tattoo relevant here? Any other action that would leave a permanent reminder?

Did your action affect anyone other than yourself when you did it?

Was your decision to delete your facebook account?

Indeed it was. Not very familiar with the site, I opened an account to see how it works. After a while, I noticed that some of my friends' positions appear on my home page, some said positions being controversial. Afraid that in the near future I might be labeled as a child molester or so, I decided to close the account : - )

Thanks to all who participated and to Doriana for the final solve.

So...

PS - One of my closest friends told me: "If you are not on FB you don't exist!" I am not -- but I am still alive : - )
