That was me, Ace1 kept deleting my posts over nothing and threatening to ban me. Just wasn't worth the hassle in the end. More shite moderation than anything. Still owed that flounce though :p

I was looking for Chuff recently and even marton.. they were both very quiet :)

So, come on olygirl, tell us the whole story... Of course you were not just browsing reddit like that in the last 24h looking for recipes :o

This reddit thread was a nicely organised operation to put some mess ... and see if it works

We're like in a real time drama or a movie, where you've got 2 columbian cartels fighting for dominance.

We've got ex-forum mods, butthurt memebers and their friends trying to get back their 'el barrio bajo' and these other ones who are having the vison of the forum in the bipartisan spirit with a moto " freedom for all" ..

maybe some negiotiations can happen... 6 months for the group 1, 6 mths for group 2

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 done respect, in both directions for opinions that differ from one's own.

Switzerland is quite divided on the government's recent measures to control Covid, especially with the urgency of introducing certificate checks at restaurants, schools, etc. Even I have to agree they should have implemented the newest regulations at least 7 days after announcing it. The Covid thread should reflect various opinions BUT it should not become a safe haven for anti-vaxxers or conspiracy theorists who willfully ignore the law.

i just wanted to say how happy i am to see the ef coming together, regardless of our varying opinions, to defend our forum against this baseless and spineless slur.

Funny that Pancakes is banned and this happens one day later. I even understand as the ban was in my opinion not justified.

but neither should it become a safehaven for cheerleaders of scaremongering. that's what reddit is there for.

What was pancakes banned for? I missed it and she always seemed very pleasant to me.

Pancakes
Ban date: 09.09.2021 / Lift date: 11.09.2021
Reason: foul language - take a breather
Banned by lost_inbroad

48hr ban by LIB for some pretty raw language that has since been deleted. Deserved, IMO. She can return back tomorrow.

She was heated in the moment (hey that happens to all of us) and, in reflection, edited her post. I don't know why, after her edit she should warrant a ban?

Seems strict but not totally unjustified.

Classic case of a moderator is dammed if they do, dammed if they don't.

Only 48h, so it's not worth getting overly het up about.

I went back and read some of the exchanges. Fairdinkum was spreading misinformation. No wonder Pancakes went bonkers.

Maybe you should reflect just a tiny bit more on your bipartisan spirit.

1. Who is the authority on truthful and false information?
2. That justifies telling people to **** off?

Fairdinkum is one that would be on my watch list were I a mod (and Pancakes wouldn't be) but that doesn't excuse bad language.

If we allow that then the place will degenerate.

Ace1 did exactly that to me. He kept closing my threads when I was asking for explanations why certain members were banned who were not breaking any obvious rules, he neg repped me constantly and deleted a lot of stuff with no explanation.

He did say on his way out that the decision to demod him was "death to the forum" yet EF seems to be more popular than ever :D

Banning a poster due to foul language is justified. Saying Covid is the same as the flu is spreading false information. Maybe this issue should be discussed with the editor.
