Re: V__ is back - thanks mods!

If you are so sensitive that you are offended by someone unknown persons posts on the internet and you cannot scroll past their posts then use the ignore function. Simples

I'm not for banning anyone except for those who break the law or who are blatantly racist or sexist.

If someone provokes me ITRW then I ignore them, EF is on the internet, its even easier to avoid people on here.

Full Circle as well he didn't deserve his permanent ban.

22yards and Ace1 simply banned him for being vocal in the Covid thread, just like myself

When I opened a thread for his banning it was closed within 30 minutes...

So glad these people aren't mods anymore! They were not moderating they were smothering the forum

Funny. I had always assumed moderators would be a (sort of) functioning group that jointly assesses and decides on rules, compliance and if necessary bans. Not a bunch of infighting, misaligned kindergarten kids. This also makes me wonder what role this mysterious EB character plays.

Can we get Full Circle and CodPeace unbanned? CodPeace in particular was banned for absolutely nothing at all.
Bring back Canadian_dude also please.

While your response seems reasonable...



The next poster is brim full with history/implications a newbie can only gawp at Don't mention the war?
So you too discovered the forum just about a year ago? lol

Btw, you can start a petition to resurrect the "grumpy aussie" if you miss him so much. Or even better - just write to EB.

This is it ^

On the whole, I would suspect the unbannings are a means to an end, providing a muse service to the forum to avoid stagnation and keep ad income and usage stats high. Therefore the complainers and anyone answering, me included, are part of a self-fulfilling prophesy lining Ed Bob's Swedish bank account with gold.

But we're bored and filled with the image of our own self-importance so let's carry on.

Anal leakage and excessive nose hair.

I couple of days ago you said, you said you had previously asked him to delete all your info under GDPR, based on that I can't think he would bother to reply as he complied with your wishes at the time.
This again? Pick another tune. Is dull. And irrelevant.

My guess is he only responds to a select few. He's replied in the not-too-distant past. He likes his echo chamber, IMO, obvs.

EB is not real, he is a virtual brother of Joi from Blade Runner 2049. A product of Wallace Corporation to comfort all you lonely EF people

True, but there are always some people stupid enough to follow unsafe or dangerous advice. The question is should we try to protect them or just close our eyes?

You can't protect people from their stupidity, unless you are willing to be with them 24/7
