Right. Imagine the out-cry on EF if an expat flew Swiss, where they said "Willkommen bei Kapitän Meier und seiner Mannschaft".
Only thing missing is their location, the cockpit.

Also:
"I moved into an apartment with rules and believe that I should be exempt from those rules".

Or:
"Why is everything so expensive?" shortly followed by a thread on whether the salary increase from 120k to 140k for their role is appropriate.

Or:
"Why can't I get a 20 franc walk in manicure in the center of Zurich?" while also complaining they can't exist on their 120k a year salary.
Or,
"Just moved here from the US of A. How do I rebuild my 20-odd piece assault rifle, automatic pistol, hand grenade, suitcase A-bomb, and Ricin-in-envelopes collection that is my god-given right to own?"
