What swing to the right? What bullies? Seriously? Examples?

Disagreeing with someone doesn't make them far right, not does it make them a bully.
I agree with the below statement by a Local editor:

Disagreeing with someone doesn't make them far right, nor does it make them a bully. And by the way, this forum was a hot bed of bullying before the changes were made, enabled by the previous moderators.
Potato, tomato. It still is however, only now enabled by different moderators.

It's allllll the way over to the right and practically out the other side.

I think the telling sign is Chuff is still able to spout his aggressive, dimwitted cr*p without any censorship from the new moderation team. I'm fine with that as it proves that they're better than the last lot.

Can't speak for OilyGirl but my gripe is TheLocal needed to make public interventions right here, in a good number of threads. An announcement about all the mod hoohaa in particular yet total silence. 1 thread on Reddit and they are all over it like flies on a big, steaming, turd loaf.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

I generally take the view that being a moderator is a thankless job and going after them is pretty low.

I think they all (past and present) did / do a decent job and tried their best. I was sad to see Ace1 leave, but equally think FMF is doing a good job.

So many posters have left EF and the few like-minded posters that still remain just don't have the energy or motivation to stand up to the posters spouting misinformation and negativity that can now be found in many of EF's threads.

Here's hoping (although it's just a shimmer) that the Local will actually keep their word.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

I agree with this statement, as well. However, I think a significant % of members don't realize which side they are on...

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Susie-Q is very active on reddit and maybe there are other reddit active members here so they want to stir the pot

How meticulously that post on reddit is done I'm so impressed.. with links one after the other, the author trying to shock the readers and ask for their help

And a load left under the previous mod team, because the bullying was just out of control! I got banned for "spreading misinformation" until the Local investigated and found it was completely untrue. Finding out today that I've been having my name smeared on a Reddit thread with posts being quoted out of context is really not on!

So it should be aggression and sniping all round? This, above, is a personal attack.

Whatever happened to debate the post not the poster? That seems very much to have fallen by the wayside.

I wouldn't be here today if not, I had to write to the Local to get my ban removed because the previous moderators figured having a differing opinion was spreading misinformation.

The account seems to be currently suspended, so all the links for nothing. What's really impressing, is that there are some butthurt snowflakes considering that having a different opinion makes you a criminal worth censoring. I agree, it might be one of the usual suspects - search after statements like "ban them", "put them in jail", "fire them" on EF.

Who started the reddit thread?

My moneys on Chuff or Pancake
The Reddit OP has been there for some time and started a number of other threads; none of which read like from Chuff or Pancake or the ex mods - in fact, I was not able to match to any well-known EF member.

Maybe FMF is trying to engineer his escape

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

It's probably best to treat Covid with a degree of leniency both ways as it's very emotive in society in general. I had a long chat with a Swiss neighbour who is very upset with the government (and is not an antivaxxer).

We've seen countries take questionable decisions both ways (Spain's mask outside, some US states opening very early).

So if they can get it wrong, why can't a humble poster.

Obviously anyone making soros / gates / nanorobots conspiracy theories is beyond the pale, but can't we have some respect, in both directions for opinions that differ from one's own. Lots of eminent scientists have by their own admission got lots wrong. That's unsurprising when you are dealing with something new.

Tolerance everyone - tolerance

Covid is yet another LGBTQIA+ topic - untouchable in the western world.

If EF was hosted in China/Arab land/Russia - no one would give a single fuickie.
