The following stock answers from the forum veterans

Answer 1 - most common answer

If you don't like it f** off back to where you came from - sometimes followed by a stereotypical reference to a national food or pass time

Answer 2

You must be have shit life and be a very depressed individual

Answer 3
You must be very stupid to fall for something like that

Answer 4
Why did you sign such a contract when it was plain to see in paragraph 37 subsection 4 clause k that they had you by the bal*s

On the other hand it will get read and you will get a response as none of them have anything else better to do and above all have an opinion on absolutely everything
Man, you seem to forget that all these people, those "veterans" and all the rest, aren't paid for being here answering our -mine included- questions.

They do so on their free time, instead of playing with their kids, or skiing, or whatever is that they' d otherwise be doing, just because they want to make life in Switzerland a little bit more easy for you and me.

The same goes of course for every one, in every other forum, that helps, even a bit just because he feels like doing it.

Re: Before you complain in here expect:

Hi

There are a few sarcastic people in here, but in general most people are quite helpful, don't let bad comments put you of posting😜, the whole idea is to share information, advice and what's good and bad about living here in CH

Hope this helps

Also

* The sarcasm is as likely (or more likely) to be aimed at other well known members, it isn't reserved for newbies.

* A good serious post will be treated with respect (at least for the first few pages until it goes off topic, at which point ignore it anyway if it bothers you).

* Blaming something on Swissness when it is probably universal (garages doing work not asked for? quotes not honoured? surely not!) is unappreciated, it smacks of whining and gives expats a bad name.

* Trolls do get banned; even legends get timeouts - use the "report post" button if you think something is going too far.

Sweetie, you've got to find a healthier hobby. This present one just makes you look foolish and I'm convinced you're better than that.

I'm a moderator there; the place is full of threads about how there's more variety in the UK, they're cheaper in Germany but "you earn a Swiss salary so should pay for Swiss butts".

You forgot the "I'm a non-EU butt licker and would like to come and lick Swiss butt. I have no relevant qualification."

Pity that you haven't yet made legend status with your new alias then.
