Martians in EF?

Hello!

I am wondering if there are many marsian or Marsian speakers in the EF? Doesn't exist (as far as I know) a Marsian Forum. If we are enough maybe we could start it! Or at least meet for a drink!


We could create a group of voters to support Politicians from Mars origins only?

Caution: old marsians are not accepted as they are racist*. *It's proven 2 of my neighboors are old and racist, which represents above 35% of the total flat population. Good enough explanation.


We also accept people from Tribal Guinea Pow Wow, hu taka po po kinr!


And then we wonder why "Swiss people" are racist or show some resentment towards migrants....

Re: Marsians in EF?

I'd bet at a bit more than 1/2 the EF population are Martians. The other 1/2 are Venusians (rather than Venetian). Or at least that's what John Gray would have us think.

Apparently there is no common language for all Martians. Although the Martians that hang out here all speak English.

No. Some of them speak foreign language, discriminate as per their origins, and then wonder why they are not "welcomed" too much by Swiss people...

I suggest we should create sub forums for all languages around there.

Contenance...! It doesn't suit you to be so glum and if you really want to make a point, I'm sure your cause is better served if you could actually claim moral high ground..

Have a look outside, breath deeply and get the smile out (I know I hid it somewhere at the end of September last year, now where was that again...)

Re: Marsians in EF?

Yeah I was trying to experience how it feels to post something discriminatory and stupid.

I Don't feel any better and certainly does not makes anyone feel like smiling.

But what can you expect

And you know, Switzerland is the only country in the world where people are so racist as to not vote for Martians. It says so somewhere on the Internet so it must be true.

Now where can I buy red sugar?

Sorry to disagree:

His name is Blagwagamarsius and he will not vote for any marsian*.
I proved my point. 100% of the person surveyed agreed.


*but yes he has more difficulties being elected as politician in those following countries: Switzerland, Austria, Belarus. Where old racists are

**He wants to make a forum for only people "like him" anyone interested?

What are you talking about? English IS a foreign language to many people.

Not only that but I think you are being a bit childish about the whole thing. There is a language exchange thread too. Shall we stop that cuz you feel left out? And why should you feel left out. Your profile says you speak spanish.

I'm really confused.

Since you seem to be an English speaker , I find it rather weird that you fail to realize that the thread you are critizing is not trying to create a forum for ONLY people like him/her.

a Spanish forum would be for people who speak spanish as much as an english forum is for people who speak english.

"English Forum" (http://www.englishforum.ch) and yet some people speak only "Philipinos", "spanish", etc...

Yes I do speak Spanish. But when you compare that topic with other like "Swiss people are discriminating foreigners" there is no surprise why.

The guys has as much opportunities as everyone else in "English Forum.ch" to meet and participate to group meeting, topics, etc...
And yet he wants to meet up with "Spanish people", how exclusive and discriminating is that?

Why doing that here, on a place where everyone has the same opportunities to meet with each others whatever their origin?

People who don't want to read how "Swiss people are discriminating, racist". People who are Europeans and value integration and cultural mixes.

Well, that excludes the overwhelming majority of English speakers on the planet.

Why don't you set up a "Europeans4Integration.ch" forum if it's that important to you?

Yeah more like that-

Who else don't speak Spanish in that forum?

Anyway everyone here speaking English has the same opportunities to meet with each others, why creating discrimination?
