Oi! Enough with the personal stuff!

I don't care who started what. This isn't the place for it.
Where is the place?

... this forum is not.

This forum is dominated by bullies, insults are the normal accepted way of expressing oneself, the intellectual level is lower than in the lowest class I've ever taught, ego issues overturn any attempt at having a discussion and the only policy of the house is to avoid confrontation. Next time you read a message about an expat puzzled by the passive agressive behaviour of the Swiss, look in the mirror. Hate, narcissism, ignorance and dishonesty feel at home here, you take very good care of them.

For the record: There is not one English speaker here with decent French or German, many wrong translations and incorrect explanations were given by presomptuous narcists.

This forum diserves nothing but a definite facepalm.

Like with all things in life, focus on the good bits and ignore the noise.
I have found this community very helpful and often have recd. good advise.
I have also tried to pay back by helping where I can.
Sure there are some people who are obnoxious and impatient and go off topic.
Ignore them and focus on the ones who want to help.
And finally, if you cant meet a good person, be one.
All the best.

Yes, but who do you adore? It has to be "Je t'adore!", or even "Je vous adore!", unless you want to get a B or a C. The exclamation points are as important as the pronouns.
an other teacher .... by the way - wanna be picky? - exclamation marks are not used here, as 'I adore you' is not an order

Well, OP has a point.
The way he's presenting his point he cements it.

Ever since working on compuserve beginning of the 90-ies I wonder why people expect people on the internet being different from real life? Who do they think are posting on forums??
Well, I've probably annoyed some neighbour again by having a few hearty laughs tonight ..... I've had some interesting inputs on this forum and I've read some posts which made me wonder how people can be so full of themselves ..... and when I walk out the door tomorrow it will be the same.

OP never showed again in this thread, hope he didn't hurt himself? Do we have to start an other "where is wolly"like-thingy?

Re: Switzerland is all right...

I think the internet magnifies the already big egos that tend to be hidden inside "little people".

It was after 10pm so he was off down in the basement doing his washing, cranking up the music & shouting outside for his cat Furry Faltrad to come in to share his bed.

Very, very true.
It's so hard not to derail this thread...

Maybe only a PM could mitigate that.

Not only understand it - I'm forced to work with those who's understanding has come from some kind of global dictionary (probably from the bank, which has never been maintained).
You need to apply some out of the box thinking to a blue sky solution in order to leverage the low hanging fruit for synergies.

Re: Switzerland is all right...

Apologies - I deleted my original post because I realise that I'd completely lost the thread of the conversation. So here's my original thoughts, budget millions. Feel free and enjoy to implement:
