EF is being discussed on Reddit

In an unusual twist of events, this EF thread is now being discussed in Reddit, all nonsense of course.

Maybe somebody here would like to start a thread about reddit?
It's just like reading EF live.

Re: EF is being discussed on Reddit

It cracks me up that people think EF is a dark and terrible place. I'm quite sensitive in general, and EF doesn't bother me at all, where as FB and Twitter have really upset me in the past.

Hi all. Thanks for this post and the emails some of you have sent to us. We take it seriously and are looking into it to see what we can do. As journalists working on The Local news sites we are not involved in the forum in any way and you can be reassured our coverage of the pandemic has been dictated only by our desire to get the correct information and facts to readers. But obviously as owner of the Englishforum we need ensure if reflects our values and does not encouraging law-breaking or the spreading of conspiracy theories, while allowing a range of views to be heard (some of which will be at odds with our own). We will be discussing possible action this morning and I'll report back here. Thanks again for the post. Ben (Managing Editor)

EF is moderate/right-wing? I nearly spat my beer out when I read that!

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

Professional mod work would have been to move all the Covid-specific posts to the Covid thread at the same time and leave a clarifying comment.
Actually, FMF and OG's post were left in order to show that an open dialogue trumps getting offended and yelling as a modus operandi.

Someone is trying to shut this website down

At least this is how I found out that this website existed. But it seems like people want to censor opinions. What can be done about this?

Hello Goddess and welcome to our community.

We are trying to not censor. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - it is like with everything that counts on people being civil.
