Thread is pretty dead on Reddit, isn‘t ? And here, there are what, 17 pages?

Just saying………

True but at this point people are mostly discussing who cleans the shit from the toilet bowl. The discussion is done.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Btw, when I first read the reddit post, I was amazed to see EF being mentioned.
Then I thought this was much ado about nothing.
I have always found this forum to be very open and helpful.

However having being part of the discussion on the latest restrictions announced by the Swiss Govt, I wonder if the Reddit posters were onto something.
"Last Day Before Your Freedoms are Limited"

I don't have an issue with people having different points of views.

But when we start disregarding science and start alluding motives and conspiracies to stated facts, then there is something amiss. But maybe is more symbolic of the wider internet vs. being a EF specific issue.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

i've just been over to this forum's sister forum, toytowngermany.

The level of abusive behaviour going on there (especially on corona discussions) makes the ef seem like a kiddies playground.

Someone should start a Reddit thread to make sure that The Local is aware. That was I'm sure the only reason someone felt the need to create TWO Reddit blogs in the first place

I remember there were particularly fun and informative conversations :

- the existence of a link between pedophilia and homosexuality or heterosexuality...
- abortion - in particular at which point does the embroynic child develop the ability to experience pain
- male and female circumcision - with graphic pics of both procedures

I wonder if he got radicalized by reading EF.....just a joke, OK?

Disruptive action in Zurich: Man attacks security at the inauguration of Impftram and is arrested
After the inauguration of the new Zurich vaccination tram, a man was arrested. According to the police, he attacked a security officer.

In more serious terms, the sad thing is that people like this man get ignored while all the attention goes to the ones who dares to write something against the status quo. So, the real crazy are out there. They don't even misinform by copy/paste of twitter stuff (harmless things), they effectively do stupid things in the physical world.

Ignored? He got arrested and the news report on the case. Or do you think about some real life "Minority Report"?

That's the police.

This thread is about the Goody Two-shoes Reddit crowd that equal letting a bit of steam out to terrorism. People policing other people's thought are too busy with ideas that they forget the physical world is where things matter.

That's true of most of the internet. Both "wings" of the covid debate have frankly done a lot to upset the normal sensible people in the middle (and of course each other). So everyone is fighting everyone.

If EITHER wing was in charge permanently, we'd struggle to go back to normal.

Used to do the same. Problem is - like the middle - what is considered "liberal" has moved so far left on many social aspects. And fiscally conservative exists nowhere in the world anymore.
