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

Seems this forum member has taken her gripes public.

It's a cheap shot blog, I like the way she ridicules a spelling mistake and then says Sharkey "should be steralized"



Then again in her own words..

"I mean, something had to create something as awesome as me."

"I am modest."

"Hey, I am a Scorpio...I am vindictive and hold grudges."


Now I wonder who she is ?

Yeah but his name is there in full technicolour as the last poster...

Not too sure about the links and copyright issues reproducing Forum posts like that either... It's one thing being indexed by the Forum and Google, we kind of implicitly agree when we use the site, but I think that site oversteps the mark a bit.

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

I just find it a pity really that a person would only see the negative. Of course there's all kind of silly noise here, but it's just harmless banter, like you would find in every day life.
But there's also warmth and help and true kindness that can be found here. There are friends that can be found and there's hope too.
It seems to me that every time there's been a genuine need for help and info here, people have answered the call.

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

Funny how its ok to tell readers in one's blog about a website she recommends people to exploit for info and then to get the hell out of Dodge. If only the same could be said of the blog

Or is that post modern irony?

the problem apparently is that people at times do not realize that in an internet forum, just as in a talk in a pub, people simply present THEIR personal opinion. Alright, some talk can embarass you, but to outline your personal opinion should be acceptable to the others.

Oooh, I'm really torn between staying on the EF or surrendering to the literary wonder that is her blog.

"please let there be one of my thread or comments"
"please let there be one of my thread or comments"
"please let there be one of my thread or comments"


but there weren't any

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

I found that post a while ago in a really weird way actually.
Google is watching.....

She then goes on in the comments section to say:
"I felt it was my duty to expose the trolls. See, I may use the internet to share my experiences, but I do it a more positive manner. I would like to think I am more of a garden gnome than a troll...bringing cuteness and cheer."

How is it positive to make fun of other people exactly? We all like a good bitch. Apparently she does too.

I don't see that the blog has any more value than she claims the EF threads have.

LOL appears the blogger can not tell a thread from a post...anyways we always have banter and nonsense like any other forum but I do believe we are a community. Plus, really...doesn't she have a sense of humor? Guess not!

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

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.
