Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Exactly! Facebook has all the resources in the world and I still do not want them being a gatekeeper or arbiter of what is fake news/truth/misinformation.

EF has zero resources and i would not want any of the volunteers to police content, let alone The Local who has shown zero interest in EF since they bought it.

The threads are not all in the OT section but they should probably be consolidated there so people can debate. I have learned from both sides. Frankly, I think I am more open minded than the folks who just keep crowing "fake news, misinformation!" And let's not forget Bowlie's classic (and so typical), "Absolute Rubbish. You should be banned for spreading misinformation."

Olygirl, for someone who was just browsing reddit , just like that out of boredom..... you've stumbled on this thread ))

and here you sound like the devil's advocate. Don't know if you are aware, but you are justyfing very well and even taking it to another level so yes, it's celar it's few of you who have done this nice psy-op.

and when I'm the messenger (in that covid topic) you dont care, you shoot... you get even your friends to shoot how about that ?
By suggesting that I started or contributed to the Reddit thread, you are spreading lies and creating a conspiracy theory all based on no evidence whatsoever. These kind of posts hurt EF and you should be appropriately warned by the mods to cool it.

This is exactly what the Local editor does not want.

Saying Covid is the same as the flu is spreading false information. Maybe this issue should be discussed with the editor.
Here's the thing though, it's not. Yes Covid is more dangerous for the majority than the Flu, but there's so much evidence that the Flu is more dangerous to children than Covid. Nuance is everything and has been lost in the past few years.

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
I was a third underling crushed under the supreme Soviet dictator that was Ace1. Just realised no point continuing.

In contrast has a single leftist poster been banned since FMF has stepped up to the plate ? If so whom ?

Ironically enough however, saying coronovirusses are one of the most common cause of the common cold (together with rhinoviruses, adenoviruses and enteroviruses) would be factual.

Oh dear I'll end up on reddit now won't I? For daring to go against the newspeak where misinformation is defined as everything that doesn't conform to the information presented by our overlords.

This thread will certainly derail I'm afraid.

HickvonFrick, it's my autocorrect that changed few words

What I was saying to olygirl, is how it's interesting how she sounds like the devil's advocate here in regards to that reddit topic.

She justifies each element, she adds even more substance to it, she takes it to another level ( giving us the big picture )

for someone that just by accident saw that thread on reddit .. it's a bit too much.

olygirl, you see? this dramatic tantrums are really logical for someone who is 45 + ? If I said how Elton John's song "blue eyes" sounds as if it's written for you , would you accuse me of conspiracy as well ? I mean, we cant say anything anymore apart "the ef was better before" ! ?

They aren't closely related. They are in different phylums - which is itself a very high level classification. Being related at the kingdom level means they are about as close to one another as we are to jellyfish.

So let me get this straight - you're complaining :

1) A former mod team which banned and hounded libertarian posters was demodded
2) The new mod team refuses to ban and hound EITHER libertarian posters , left wing posters or right wing posters ?

and this makes the forum somehow less useful and less balanced ???

You are providing a safe haven for twisting and turning of facts to become misinformation. It has happened on various threads. Personally, I think you are part of the problem since you are a mod.

Do you imagine yourself to be the living embodiment of EF ?
If so do you have a special costume ? If so please post pics.

If not do you not realise how arrogant the above sounds ?

That is what I thought in the beginning. Now I think it brings to light some good points as to how people are thinking this forum should be run. We should try to not take the same old arguments here from other threads, but see this as a reminder to try to uphold civilized debate. I just don't agree with the alleged division into camps, and while this may appear so in the Covid thread, these lines are breaking when looking at other topics.

PS: That is, for the reasonable posters.

olygirl, what do you want? A change to the mod team? People banned? The Covid thread closed?

You're clearly not happy, but you appear to have many different gripes. What is it that you want to make this forum better for you?
