Popup advert for thelocal.fr (The Local France)

I live and work in CH.

It says so on my profile, and my location.

I don't need to know about "thelocal.fr". I also don't need it to take me to some random page when I click to close the pop-up window.

TIA for taking note.

Re: @ the owners of EF/The Local

Perhaps, whilst they're sorting that out, they could also sort this headline out...


Weather breaks Swiss tightrope walker's record streak








The poor grammar and the appalling punctuation of the article itself are, I fear, beyond redemption.

I have my browser set to block pop-ups, but it still appears. When I went to close it, I was directed the poxy-arse French news site.

The Local reminds me a bit of Ryanair.

Their antics are bloody annoying, but they know we'll keep coming back all the same.

The bastards.

Re: @ the owners of EF/The Local

I hate to be such a boring party pooper...but honestly, personally, I don't mind coz we live about 5mins of the French border. So, the local.fr should it ever become a practical source of info, of a region 5mins away, would make some sense. Not that I plan to change sides and play for the other team, but... Still worth the info that might relate to all of us living in the vicinity of FR.

Re: @ the owners of EF/The Local

Hmm, they launch thelocal.fr without a forum? Seems a bit strange as from my point of view, the forums on thelocals sites in Sweden, Germany and Switzerland are their strongest points. What I would suggest to the owners is to add the forum from toytowngermany to the french site (as it's the most advanced forum of the three) and upgrade the Swedish forum as it's not very advanced.
PS - used all three as I used to live in Stockholm and Munich.
Just my opinion.

Re: @ the owners of EF/The Local

It's not so much the popup. It's the sudden and repugnant whiff of garlic and Roquefort bursting from my pc that upset me.

Well, I can smell the raw see food people slurp there over the border, ayyyy....so it is all the same.

Traitor? Hahaha, I always had my own head, to my frequent detriment..
