it is quite worrying that trolls that just copy texts, create the more interesting threads.
Indeed. A troll post on the English Forum can be quite effective because of the nature of the participants here. Effective in this case means spawning a high volume of controversy, sarcasm, vitriol, bigotry, sympathy, understanding, well meaning advice, historical facts, etc. etc. For the author, it must be wonderful sensation, like igniting a powerful firework, say a sky rocket, and standing back and watching it go off.

Interestingly, this is how it is viewed from glocals (of which I am not a member) http://www.glocals.com/forums/genera...d----66410.htm

I missed something here. Since when and why is OP a Troll?

I 2nd that instead of getting banned, they should recive the rant of the year

It was very thoughtfully written and entertaining - who cares if she had written the same post somewhere before (or if that was even the same person???)

Ironically, your post makes you seem really interesting.

Your problem might be your location...
Are your sure that you're in Switzerland?

If you can't be bothered to find interesting things to do then yes you're going to be bored. That's not the country's fault, but yours. Use myswitzerland.com or the local tourist office websites to expand your horizons.

Most people in your position bring their own unhappiness with them. I'm guessing that they find it more convenient that way.

To be accurate it was Johnson, not Wilde.

Re: Switzerland: The most BORING place. WARNING: Long complaining rant...

Sorry you feel that way. That's fine- no country is perfect for all-so time to plan what you want to do next. Life's too short.

But JackW is right- wherever you go, you'll take YOU with YOU - NO country will make a difference to that.

Not really, you can leave Switzerland & in 30 years come back & nothing will have changed. Only difference is Odile's family will be posting rather than Odile

That was really below the belt, as well as in the wrong thread.

Hardly as apparently I am on Odile's ignore list so she won't have seen it. I have not logged out in years..... Strange she has responded several times in the last 24 hours, which would not be possible if I really was on her ignore list!

I only mentioned that as Odile earlier claimed he family would now come & live in CH, a couple of weeks ago she was going to go back to the UK as the £ had collapsed. Time will tell, my bet is they will stay in the UK.........

I think it's inheritance tax planning

As well as factually wrong. It was 39 years, and things have changed, a lot.

Please read what I wrote, I never said you left Switzerland for 30 years.

The standard of comprehension of school teachers in the UK must be appealing.
