Then say that, Tom. MissEnglish has a point and I would also greatly appreciate if you could keep the locker room humor in the locker.

Edit: Calling someone a Nazi is also offensive unless there is evidence that they adhere to those ethics.

Re: EastEnders has left the building after 15 years

People from EF meet. They do and have great fun. They don't always talk about it, one has to be careful to not upset some drama queens here - but it is still a good resource with the occasional meet ups. Just met another amazing and positive member today.

Thank you, FMF, for delivering EE's parting message and for investing in our community.

by constant attacks and bullying! There is a handful here who constantly groan, and make personal attacks, again and again. And you call that 'investing in our community' from a long way away from this country and community? Drama Queens? wow. Pot, kettle, black- the irony is mind blowing. OUT.

Re: EastEnders has left the building after 15 years

Well, I am a relative newbie here (3/4 years I think?). I am sorry East Enders and some others left as when I first joined, I would laugh out loud at their banter. DouglasBreakfast, Sandgrounder (I may be off in their screen name - but most of you get my drift). Many of their posts were laugh-out-loud funny. And there were others as well...

I miss their witty responses as well as their acumen and intelligent responses.

I guess things change and EF will evolve in some format. But hats off to those who have left for whatever reason; you should know that many miss your voice!

You applaud a post that condemns calling others nazis, and then in the same post you call others on this forum facsicsts.

Re: EastEnders has left the building after 15 years

Just read the initial post and didnít go through explanation of bashingís in detail and what nots. I enjoyed reading EEís posts, she was fun and sorry to see her go. At the same time, one has to respect each individuals decision and not judge. Wishing good luck to her via whoever keeps in touch with her in real life!

I think that was/is Cyrus.

Anyway, itís almost always a loss when someone leaves. But donít kid yourselves...this place is just as cliquey as any other social media platform. Park and snark.

The forum has changed, it used to be like going to the pub on Friday night, to have a laugh with your friends.
Nah, never been that friendly. But it was fun at times. (many times)

This.


Thank you, EE and I wish you good luck!

Some of the in my opinion more negative, rude and disrespectful users are from the UK and the US. And that’s not news but was the same in 2007 when I joined.
Boy you do like to stir some shite up, but you're spot on here.

I guess it's the internet.

On the other hand, some of the nicest folks here were/are also from UK and US so as always.........balance.

Fo sho! This place is just as cliquey as anywhere.

Itís rather sad when a nice farewell thread is spoiled by crass comments.
There is a time and a place for such things and this is not it.
The nazi and facist comments were just unpleasant and unnecessary and had no place here.

This thread is about a Swiss user who has spend a decade and half helping people finding their way around Switzerland. She decided to leave the platform. One of the first replies is "sadly, this isnt a pure UK platform, I miss our superior debating culture... we are polite... its all cause of them foreigners"... but I am stirring the shit questioning that?
