It is a friendlier place for you but not for others with opposite view points. This should simply be a balanced place where discussions can take place without gangs of people baiting and making it a generally unpleasant place to be.
Come again?

Under the new moderators nobody has been banned for having a different opinion.

Under the old moderators it was happening all the time.

I just wanted to light a cigarette, says the arsonist.
But c'mon, the whole reddit thing is so much like the story of a butthurt kid leaving the playground and the other kids and then suddenly discovering nobody misses him/her. I put my money on someone who is no longer an active member, but was probably until recently.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Komso,

If a person finds a defamatory and flame like topic somewhere on the internet about this forum and comes and throws the bone to us the hungry folks and it's like "go now , fight" ... that's not being "arsonist" ?

I don't know who made the original post and I don't really care.

It reads like a deranged individual with problems beyond our imagining. Especially picking on Tony Clifton was beyond the pale.

What I find more disconcerting is the high level of approval and me-too-ism in the comments.

What are you hungry for? Go eat something you enjoy and give it a rest.

I made clear what I think about the Reddit stuff. This is about members here and their contributions to debate.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

Day 2 of the Reddit drama and I still don't understand where is the problem ?

It's a forum, people talk, they laugh, fight, argue, agree ...

The ones like Susie,olygirl, marton, chuff,bowlie, .. are free here, they can make topics, talk with each other and share their same opinions or they can challenge their statements, convictions with someone who thinks in a different way, from another angle etc. . No one is witch hunting anyone here. (mods arent deleting posts from certain members or give restrictions ..)

I think how generally everyone got used to the taliban-like moderating from the previous mods and now when I tell a joke about the masks that's like a blasphemy and these people are upset because such joke should be deleted and the member- banned.

I promise Susie/oly/marton/pancake... I will not make any puns/jokes any more on those topics and I will not talk too much about other points of view when it comes to science, politics .. I'll keep it really minimalist. And we will be safer.

At any one time, the EF coronavirus thread is being read by many more nonmembers than EF members so which is more likely?
Most "guests" on messageboards are bots. e.g. google crawlers for indexing the content.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

I think itís disingenuous how you keep calling out people you might disagree with. Youíre sort of framing yourself as a concerned citizenÖÖ... Oh look, Iím just trying to present a different point of view, but youíre also goading people to react. But hey, your choice. Itís not a public service though.

The Reddit thing is pretty dumb, just another reason to call butthurt.


Anyway itís a beautiful day, enjoy your weekend.

The irony is that they are making these comments on reddit, a platform that does not allow diverging opinions and would have no qualms deleting all their stuff if they happened to be on the "wrong side" of the argument.

That was our friend robogobo. He had the hots for me on this forum too. We disagreed on the Coronavirus thread and became aggressive and abusive. There was more than sufficient reason to ban him although I never called for this or reported any of his posts. I think he may not be well. Sad really.

Oh, I remember him! He called me "a piece of sh!t" or a "sh!tty person" and then the mod, luckily retired by now, said "naah, it's ok, it's not a personal attack, carry on". Just one more example, how things are much better now

I think this vocabulary goes way too far. Whether or not you agreed with how the previous mods moderated, to call their moderating "taliban-like" is both unnecessarily dramatic and very rude.
