That's twice

HTH
If the first and last time were actually the same time it could have been just the once.

He still said he'd never been in his OP though so at least one of his posts is a lie.

I've no desire to see him banned either. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. It is a private set of facts that I object to, particularly when that private set of facts is used to develop an argument which moves along racist lines to protest against racism. If someone claims "All Swiss are X" you will probably find me questioning the claim, even if "X" happens to be "Swiss". The Swiss are as individual and homogenous as any other group of people. Sentences or propositions which begin with "All" generally tend to be tautologies.
Of course, but he wouldn't get so many reactions if he played nicely/reasonably/etc.
I'm glad we agree with him not being banned, despite of everything. This remembers me of the time when porsch has been banned, most agreed with the ban, a few didn't. As usual, I was among the ones who didn't, despite of the fact that apparently, he did insult people I really like here. Why? Because he didn't play against the "rules", in fact he behaved faaar less offensive than others who, for one reason or another, seemed to always get away with some s**t.
But well, that's the group dynamics of forums, and this one will follow its own, in its own old, predictable way.
Will OP be banned? I guess so. That makes me sad.

Oh, and I miss economisto too.

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

Those threads have purely entertaining and provocative tone. If you like emotions and thrill stay with us till the end (another Friday or longer).

We apologize to users that Halloween is over by now but we promise we will continue entertainement at its prime level on this EF's thread, that serves its purpose well to evoke exact same emotions in users which Jason vs Freddy or Michael did few nights ago. Enjoy it!

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

Now here is a Romandie expression 'cela vole très très bas' - meaning the level of debate is really low - so best skip until next Friday is over

It is difficult to take you seriously when you come up with things like this.
I actually do not take you seriously because you sound ditzy most of the time and I am not saying this to ruffle your feathers, I actually mean it. You might thank and groan to ingratiate yourself to the jaded members here but it is obvious they think the same and just tolerate you and even that, not all the time!!!

Is there a reason you felt the need to write this? Stop saying "ruffle your feathers" because that's not really what you're doing is it? You have a nice line in "opinion as fact" by the way. And three exclamation points do not mitigate the inherent mean-girl vibe to your posts.

And what JagWaugh says goes for me too. I deal with kids on a daily basis.

IMO some of the worst tailgating I've seen around.

I actually feel the opposite on almost everything that you wrote. Me and my family love it here.
On another note: I have cooked for a Swiss family and being invited for meal in their house... and we are here less than 6 months.

Smile more, be polite and Switzerland will be a different place all together.

Whether he has ever been to Geneva in the first place is questionable. In the OP he says he's heard the night life is better but he's never been and later on in the thread he says he was there but got out as quickly as he could.

These trolls really need to get their stories straight before posting.

It is however quite an entertaining thread.

perhaps i should of been more precise in my post...for the bored imported housewife that seems to nitpick my every comment...
here being zurich (the bad place)
there being geneva (the fun place).

I was kind of thinking that it might be safer for kedi if she picked on me. I'v only experienced minor injuries with hand tools, but I imagine being skewered with a pair of #8 bamboo needles is probably fairly painful.

Most Kedi (cat in Turkish) like to pretend they are big lions but spray a bit of water on them and they run for their lives..
