Not sure neutered cats can still spray, maybe Kedi could tell us all what a wonderful sprayer he is.
?
I think you are confusing the meaning of "spray". She meant the "spraying of water" on cats to discourage them from doing whatever they are doing. It has nothing to do with neutering. But then again, I misunderstood her earlier comment so I might be wrong here too.

I know, I've checked your profile and the threads you created here.
(I'm that sad)
I haven't created that many threads anyway but I would of course expect people to check my statistics after all the trouble I caused here. What I find funny is how some forum members do that randomly to support their argument. Hence my comments about it being "sad". Otherwise there is nothing sad about it.

Well you seem to assume that everyone coming here to ask a question is an expert in what goes on in "fora". Obviously the OP came here knowing he would be pounced upon within 5 seconds as did I. But many people come here because they are distressed and need to find a solution to their problem. You cannot expect all of them to "suck it". People are so scared these days, they feel the need to say "I researched the forum and found out this and this, but not this" because they know they are treading on eggshells.

But I do not know why I bother trying to make my point. You and others like you seem to regard this sort of behaviour as the norm.
Distressed people are always helped on here. And lots have been very thankful, others have not. What help or advise have you given? With your vast knowledge of everything, you must have something to contribute.

I don't understand the "you and others like you" comment. Does that mean that i am, finally, a member of the "Club". Yippee!! Canny wait to phone my mummy and tell her that i am finally accepted!!

Another weak argument. I have contributed to the forum but I guess you cannot find anything else to attack me. This sort of comment is, to me, in the vein of "Go back to your country if you are so unhappy" or "If you cannot estimate how much you are worth, you are certainly not the worth the 200K you are being offered". But why do I even bother analyzing?

Anyway, this discussion has run its course. I apologize to the OP for hijacking his thread. But I cannot promise not to respond if he comes back with his hilarious posts.

Wasn´t much more than for sale items, complaining about jobs/job interviews and here. Or did I miss some brilliant and enlightening part ?

Re: 9 months in Switzerland - a honest report.

OK. I've had my tea (a balti, for the detail orientated) and have my G&T at the ready. What did I miss?



OK. Thank the Lord for all those years speed reading exam scripts... I see I missed precisely... very little.
Hmm. Back to the crochetmobile, Batman.

To be fair, she has made several helpful and informative posts over the years.

This thread seems to be an aberration, which further supports the notion that she is unhappy at the moment.

I've been a twat on the forum when I've been in a bad mood. I'm often a twat on the forum when I'm in a good mood, too. It doesn't seem to have done me any harm.

I gave Kedi some green rep yesterday, and I'd suggest that others do the same in the spirit of "no harm done". Nothing wrong with hurling abuse at her at the same time, though, in the good old spirit of EF.

Why green blobs? Does that make her feel better and will that make her less insulting?

Happy to stop bantering (not that I added much) and leave her alone. Green blobs - for me - are for posts that are truly enlightening, funny, make me grin/laugh etc

The green blobs are in response to the fact that Kedi has earned a load of red blobs despite being mostly harmless. She has kept her nonsense and shitstirring to one thread and hasn't - as far as I'm aware - done much of this kind of thing before.

As I said, I see no reason to stop responding on this thread, but it seems a bit unfair to give a longer lasting punishment for the sake of two days' worth of being an arsehole.

Could you? What is this thread about? There is a rawness of emotion that intrigues me. What happened? I just can't read 32 pages right now.

I'm sure its all good though, as it seems to be in the range of valid emotions and expressions. It seems someone is in need of catharsis, and seems to fit the weather. How can we be of service? Go on Kedi, let it out!

I took me a while to figure out what you were saying. This is really sad and pathetic and proves my point below:

when I talk with my Swiss colleagues I feel as if they are from a different planet. Especially the men sound incredibly juvenile when joking. .
I must say, when writing this I did not feel very good about making generalizations about Swiss men given I did not know that many. I am actually saddened to be right about this.

People are Very Mean and the OP has been dreadfully Misunderstood and Misinterpreted.

I did a mime too but I think it got lost in the aether. It was seminal. I should win an award... I also do a one-woman Romeo and Juliet in around 40 minutes.

Put it on 40 per page and the page count shrinks....
