Of both sexes.
Of _all_ sexes, you mean?

And in case anyone accuses it of being sexist, the expression was originally coined as a gay slang term referring specifically to a homosexual male...

Re: EastEnders has left the building after 15 years

Well, that escalated quickly...

That said, I don't post here very often anymore, simply because some of the threads that genuinely interest me (like COVID...) are way too big, long and unwieldy and I can never be sure if something I post hasn't been posted already a couple of days ago (and I cannot read every message of those threads, I already have a full-time job...).

And sometimes, before I post something I ask myself: "Does this really add value? Does this have a point? Does this have a point I haven't made before?".
And then I don't post.

A sidenote:
For historical correctness, I would ask anyone to refrain from labeling other people as "Nazis", unless they identify as such - a sort of reflex in some people, I have come to realize.

The term one may be looking for is (IMO) "fascist" - though I'm not sure if what we're looking at (Ms. vdL et.al.) is really fascism or something else entirely. Time will tell.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism

This would be a different topic entirely anyway.

In any case, I wish Ms. EE all the best for her EF-less future. I'm sure there are still enough people out there who appreciate her help.

Ok, so someone called EastEnders is leaving? The opening post is from EastEnders and not Fatman?
She had EB delete her, and thus cannot post.

Re: EastEnders has left the building after 15 years

Yeah well, bet they’re all looking in quite often. Noone really leaves EF... What do people expect, go against a few who just love to pick on newbies and it all starts from there, especially with non-(whatever)-ist views, well it did for me but I’m still here. I use the forum as I please, if I’m annoyed I don’t participate for a while and then come back. I’ve also met people from the forum in real situations, most I wouldn’t choose to meet generally but a few great people. A few proper assholes who are bitter because they didn’t quite make it here but still hang on to their past.

It is what it is. I. Know lots of useful EFers have left but part of being a good member is to stick with it as the forum like many social media platforms can chop and change as time goes by. I know one thing is for sure too; there are some fantastic, knowledgeable experts on here with which many (including myself) should be truly grateful for the insights they gave. If I was considered anything like them it would make me very proud. And I think that was why this forum was created by Mark and co. many moons ago.

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

Oh dear.
I have only been on here a couple of weeks and I must concur that some of the discussions do seem to get a bit tasty.
I personally wouldnít worry too much about being called a fascist ...in the UK at least itís standard Guardianspeak for anyone to the right of Stalin.

Indeed, very proud to have been given the task, no doubt it will not be the last as people appreciate integrity, which is often lacking.

Irrespective of the verity or not of the statement it does not belong on this thread yet Tom persists.
If he wants to discuss it he should take the discussion elsewhere.

It's rare I laugh out loud from posts, but that was one of them. FMF thinks he is a 'man of integrity'... just...

You could start up a new business:
