I think our friend deserves loads of love green rep to show her she's still very welcome here on EF.


She was last online at 11.02.11. So visiting here is either a guilty pleasure or a factfinding mission for her....blog.

Maybe we could do as Uncle Max suggested, smother her with our love in green blobs or with friend requests or nice visitor messages.

She will rue the day that we, the EF members, came to the conclusion that she needed some love.....EF style.

Well I liked it. It made me chuckle.

What's the world coming to when you can't have an irreverent rant on your own blog?

Mummy, mummy... Check this out... They advertise our discussion forum in the big world. That means our small town talks will leave our apartment and finally I can go for a walk with my friends.

Please darling stay home, I'm making a cup of tea and getting popcorn. Hold on no need to get your life. Soon will be back...

Can't believe I wasted my iphone battery looking at it.

Re: Englishforum.ch - Fact or Fiction? (Or how to rant about us)

Surely her old fella should've registered www.fromhotlantatozurich.com for more credibility?

Anyway, she does have a point. Like it or not, she does hit on some of many negatives on the EF side of things.

Of course there are the very good things that she missed. For everyone who takes off-the-cuff comments from the odd few seriously and miss out on the true friendship and helpfulness that EF can bring, there are hundreds of people who've benefitted hugely from EF.

Let's face it - she is as bored as the people she criticises in her blog posting.

But who's right and who's wrong? Nobody. There's nothing to see here.

Oh and congratulations to her for getting her blog post to go viral. And I bet she has a nice view over the railway tracks from her blogspot on the Silvercoast

Don't tell her "boy" but I'm sure I had her behind Paddy Reilly's one drunken night last year. Begging for it she was.

At least Google ranks EF above her site for her own blog...

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=eng...&client=safari
Her "blog" is PR0. You really have to try to garner that few backlinks. I think this thread is the most publicity she's every had.

At least we bitch to someone's face not behind their back. :evilgrin:

Anyway, no one is obliged to read every post on here. She's the one missing out.
If she comes here and bitch about the forum, what reactions do you think she will get? Before and after she will been set on fire? She is not even here now and people are already exposing her identity and are lynching her.

She is not the first one going out and bitching about this forum, everybody here does it and this is the reason why some forums and groups (like FB) appeared. Nothing new here.

I'm not surprised. It's this time of the year when some folks like to bitch and moan about anything... Lack of snow, stomach bug going around and some people got garlic stuck up their asses...

Re: Englishforum.ch - Fact or Fiction? (Or how to rant about us)

I don't know why we continue to waste so much valuable cyberspace on a person like her. If she fails to see the many advantages and benefits this forum has, than that's her problem. I for one love it...I've met so many interesting and nice people through this website that make my mundane life a tad bit more bearable here in Switzerland. (I better not hear about no fluffyness ya hear!)

Re: Englishforum.ch - Fact or Fiction? (Or how to rant about us)

So essentially she'd bitching in an internet blog, about other people bitching on an internet forum? Or have I missed something?

I bet there's waaaaaay more useful and relevant information in EF (in amongst all the funny and/or irrelevant shit) than there will ever be in her self-righteous little diatribes.
