Re: Are there still free lunches in Switzerland

Milf = mother i'd like to f***.

I'd be pretty cheesed off if someone referred to someone I loved like that, even if intended as a compliment.

Re: Are there still free lunches in Switzerland

The thing that really gets me about the reception Vegan Chef has received on EF is that people aren't just having a go at him for what he writes - they're having a go at him for who he is.

I was one of the first to pile in when he started one of his early threads about veganism a few weeks ago. He wrote some utter piffle about gluten intolerance, I challenged him on it, didn't get an adequate response, so I proceeded to take the piss out of him. Fair enough. I was challenging the crap he wrote, not him as a person.

Since then, we've had Caviarchips try to shut him down on the grounds that all his threads are, apparently, 'commercial' and 'not in the spirit of the rules', we've had his wife described as a milf, we've had comments about the size of his belly, we've had post after post slamming him for his style and manners, describing him as 'obnoxious' and 'a bully' and so on.

And the bloke's only been a member for what? Three weeks? Four weeks?

Come on, now. Vegan Chef writes enough shite that there's plenty to pick up on with what he writes without piling into him and his family because of how he writes. If we could put up with Canadian Dude for so long because he brought colour to the forum, why not someone like Vegan Chef who, let's face it, has brought the most excitement this forum has seen since the T&C debacle last year?

If you want to stick the boot into someone for being 'obnoxious', take it out on me, FFS. I'm big enough and ugly enough to take it (not to mention having enough rep to sink a battleship, unlike our hapless newbie here). Come on. Less of the easy targets, now. Have a go at some Veterans for a change.

I must admit I'm growing quite fond of our Vegan Chef here. He's more entertaining than a clear 90% of the contributors to this forum.

Re: Are there still free lunches in Switzerland

What kills me with VC is the merchandising. I don't care what his life ideals are, but the fact that he's constantly reminding us what he's trying to sell is a bit exhausting, to say the least.

So... Can we know what a milf is?!

Oh, and when you decide (again and again....and again) to post private pics of you on a public forum, you must be ready to face the consequences.

Why? We have nothing to hide like some, it seems.

But if gutter tactics are the norm here, then this truly is sad. I am so happy I refrained from posting any pictures of last night's social event, because some brought their children and according to your logic, if a Rock spider (pedophile) then made funny comments, this would be okay on this board, too, because they are open season.

Please go have a hard look at yourself in the mirror - what planet do you live on? Where is your sense of compassion - Hello?

You have to admit, though- he's only as entertaining as the reactions he's getting out of people.

Re: Are there still free lunches in Switzerland

This has nothing to do with compassion.

I do not post private pictures of me or my kids on a public forum such as this one. I don't have a Facebook account. This is not because I have something to hide, but because I have some basic decency and protect my private life. I find it particularly vulgar to show it to the whole world, as if they cared.

If I had been your guest and you had posted pictures of me without my consent (or even taken them, for that matter) I would have been really really mad.

You teach young adults scary thoughts. No wonder the Muppets are taking over. I also post my movements worldwide on twitter with photos, but at least there they react to sexually charged postings by banning these weirdos.

We do not come from a culture that hides. Australians are very open people.

You have tickets on yourself. Someone like you would never get invited into our home.

Botox is probably much more efficient than raw celery. And it's vegan!!!

Re: Are there still free lunches in Switzerland

At the moment this forum is giving "I'm a celebrity.. Get me out of here!" a run for its money.

VC keeps on volunteering for the bush-tucker challenge (so to speak given his dietary proselytising). And just like with Helen F all the other camp members a like moths drawn to the flame. Can't resist the lure even though they know deep down this all going to end in tears. Brilliant!

BTW and back on topic I dont think I'll be able to charge all this time to company expenses.

Just got another red paint blotch from the University lecturer with the brilliant comment ( Time to go back to your own planet!)

Are vegans alien now?

What do you teach there DRAMA?
