Facebook.

I can write German to German-speaking friends, Italian to Italian-speakers, etc.

Even got some Swiss-German from somebody in Canada last night in a biker group.

Someone might think that there is more work-life balance in Ticino

An excellent idea Phos - I agree (wow that makes a change ) -

Why could we not have a section here on EF for simple discussion in German, 1 section for French, and 1 for Italian. Would be fun and useful too.
For those who are interested, I started a thread in the group linked by 22yards further up. For French and Italian, I suggest you create social groups for practice of the respective languages, as threads on general EF should be in English.

Re: German Forum

I have something for you which fits your description of:
"has to have interesting and useful topics. It has to have some thought provoking and controversial topics. It has to have trolls, and even petulant veterans who have been there too long."

Have a look at
www.heise.de
it is mostly IT/Tech centric news with attached discussion, quite lively.

and specially to not the miss the Telepolis subsection.
www.heise.de/tp
It features articles from independent writers about a various topics political and non-political. I am sure you will be called a sock puppet in no time.
