Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Ah I see ... now Tom1234 is banned and pancakes was recently banned & supposedly banning isnít happening now due to opposite viewpoints?

Many of you are bloody disgraceful & that includes you fatmanfilms who liked posts mocking my previous fear of the virus. I have screenshoted them & sent them to The Local. If they continue to do nothing, I will personally ensure it reflects badly on them.

No allegation. A description of events. I was refuting claims that no current mod had banned anyone for anything other than foul language.

In that note I see Tom 1234 has been temp banned for "being a nuisance and wasting moderator time." Really? I wouls suggest that if a member is winding you up so badly, LostInBroad, you take your own "advice" and go an cool off.




So do I.




He was mocking. He states he was mocking and will continue to mock.

Having looked at the link V posted it seems to be to be something of a storm in a teacup: Olygirl said she wished that her town hadn't organised a Christmas fair that year because it would mean a disproportionate amount of people would attend, people that had likely travelled from out of town and would then likely help to spread the virus even more quickly,





My bold.

How is this a fair and reasonable response from someone who purports to be tolerant? Shame.



Sadly, this.
You've taken this upon yourself. Despite the previous ban, the backdoor second chance and the warning, you've decided to beat a dead horse, refuse to participate in regular forum discussions and generally instigate. This is a shared space and not your living room. There are plenty of people who directly benefit from this abundance of resource and chose not to stave off their ennui by deliberately acting incongruous.

I will ALWAYS mock your idea on limiting my freedom. I've lived through communism and I will never accept it.

And I hope you do the same for yourself. If not, you'll end up closed for 2 years living in fear listening about a deadly virus around you while the sophisticated members of society throw 600 people bdays parties during what they call a pandemic

I don't agree with Tom on much, but this is a joke.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Your best bet is writing to the advertisers. Hit TheLocal in the pocket. With the covidiocy on several threads, and homophobia on the thread about the same sex marriage vote, EF is becoming a real sewer.

I don't understand this ban either. I also don't agree with some of Tom's views but why exactly was he banned?

My thoughts, in an ideal world, all should be able to speak their views and while doing so, not denigrate others in so far as they run contrary to their thoughts/views.

Basically, can we have a discussion? Can we try and listen to opposing views? Can we refrain from name calling and try to LISTEN to what they/others are trying to say?

Wow...Is all I can say. I guess one cannot have a civil conversation without the fear of being censored. And this applies to BOTH sides... Sad!

Homophobia? Really? In THAT thread?

Guess you really wouldn't recognize an mature conversation if it hit you in the face ... (and no I was not advocating a no vote myself, not that it should matter).

Do people still get thought Voltaire in school or tgat also a thing of the past? "I do not agree with what you have to say but will defend to the death your right to say it."

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Well, OK. Have just tuned in after months of self-imposed absence. And this is the first thread I see.

Really, Lost_in_Broad, banning the above mentioned (and refusing to ban me, even though I have begged for it)?. Might be time for you and Heidi to reconsider your choices.

Really, we all understand changes in hormonal imbalances. And I can’t stand Tom123, but he has just another viewpoint. Tomorrow is a new dawn and a new day - so get those shorts ready again!

Do you post ANYTHING that isn't name calling, stirring, and general dismissive arrogance? Not sure how Tom123 has gotten time on the bench and you are still here flaming away with every single post. I don't agree with Tom much either but he seems to mostly stay civil.

I've had to try very hard to remain civil to someone who is so utterly convinced in their own infallibility.

I enjoy posts from the full Marton to TC spectrum (myself being somewhere in the middle) - but that's because both leave open the possibility they are wrong. Which is wise when dealing with Covid.

@ LIB - I have no idea what instigated this, but I have to say, that “yes”, many of us see EF as a shared living room. Why else would we spend time, nerves and energy providing advice free of charge to absolute strangers / wankers?

Although I didn't wish her banned she was constantly aggressive and rarely seemed to get out of fight mode. I was getting a bit tired of it. I got a weird PM from her after I went out of my way to be nice and tried to build a bridge and decided to keep well away after that.

Someone who, at present, sets out to see the worst in people and make enemies rather than observe and see the best in people. Her previous incarnation was miles better (predates me but I've read some historical stuff). I think we would have gotten in better were I here earlier.

It rather annoys me as she's obviously really sharp and could be an asset if she put her mind to it.

Yes, LiB said it is a shared space but not YOUR living room. So what are you on about? Begging to be banned? WTF...

Have no idea what transpired, but there was a time at EF - I dunno - about 7 years ago or a bit less or more, when the ‘atmosphere’ was completely different. Not to say it was any better or worse - it was extremely abusive but also informative.

But also fun. Almost all of these posters are just not interested any more in giving their decades of experience or advice away, to be simply abused (without the fun) on-line.

I personally profited incredibly from the information available on EF when making my life here.

But this site has really become a cesspit of non-information.

I am against bans in general. I am for as little moderation as possible. May be lift Tom's ban or reduce it to 1 day instead of 2 weeks?
