Indeed. Do you know this for a fact or is this something you’ve surmised? If this is the case, I’d like to hear it from Editor Bob himself.
Just my own logical conclusion.

I think wIt's actually vitally important to have differing opinions on a forum,
Absolutely. Whenever I want to read racist, covidiot, right-wing QAnon twaddle from the cerebrally challenged which is positively encouraged by the moderators I know I can turn to EF.

Your join date is February 2020, I guess Editor Bob is more interested in posters that have been loyal members for many years.
You get special treatment depending on how many “The Local” clickbait links you follow.

I agree it is vitally important to have differing opinions on a forum so why have the mods closed the "Trump - post Presidency thread" without any comment or discussion?
So much for the new friendly EF.
That was the first thread closed after the great reset?

I can't say I'm surprised. Do you miss it, marton? Why?
You can start a thread about Vladimir. Putin. For a change*!!!

Probably that one will get closed even faster. lol

*I mean it. Seriously.

I think we agree more than we disagree, however I can't think Editor Bob can be very worried by people who previously self deleted in a rage, then returned, yet are complaining once again.
You're talking about EB with so much reverence! Are you an yes man, FMF?

By normal service you mean the Trump thread will be restored after the posts are deleted?

I think it would be an improvement, a courtesy, if mods closing a thread would consistently write the last post in the thread, stating the reason that they are closing the thread.

This is obviously not necessary where, say, a poster had written "item sold, please close thread", but would prevent confusion especially in threads that have been running for quite a while, and in which people had contributed to the discussion.

Without that final post: "I've decided to close this thread because of x...", the next user returning to the thread just faces a blank, locked door, which is like going to one's local café or pub and finding it closed, but not knowing what happened. It's a pity for the users to be stuck there with no information, when a final post (like a sign on the pub door) could at least explain what had happened.

Re: V__ is back - thanks mods!

it never ceases to amaze me how people take EF so seriously.

to the trolls, be polite to people. It's not hard.

to the people, if you cannot blindspot the trolls you hate, put them on ignore. Don't be scared you'll miss something. And don't keep replying to them - especially you, Kittster

There can be no true justice until omtatsat is unbanned. The single most entertaining poster EF has ever had.

And bring back The OA! (Okay, that's down to Netflix rather than the intern in Stockholm who's pretending to be Editor Bob...)

I don't want to defend Omtastat's actions by any stretch. But there are plenty of very rude people on EF who never face any consequences.

It depends on whether you regard promotion to the mod team as a consequence.

This is just a hypothesis, but... I think there might be a direct correlation between the amount of time that one spends here and the degree to which they take this place seriously.

You mean it's an echo chamber like Facebook, surely not

I'm pretty sure the more I see the less I take seriously, the more threads I ignore and the more people I add to my ignore list.
