Any truth that the cat is called "Amanda" and she likes to play games with people dressing up?

Sorry, that came out a bit clumsily, I wasn't intimating that I was naive to trust the mods... just EF and the Admin. I did edit my post before I read yours.

You can cut the rope now.
I know. It's unfortunate things were rushed and folks expected info we really didn't have, right at the moment we were waiting for it just like anyone else. To spread that fact felt like destabilizing the entire community, but there was zero attempt for any kind of patronizing. Felt more like...ok, what is going to be shifted next. It seems, though, we are a tight community, despite the weird rearrangements, and understandable corporate moves. I personally do not think there will be any menace in terms of abuse of what we contribute, as a community.

Well, well. At least folks know we have really zero special powers.

Where was I...

Re: How seriously are you considering departing EF permanently?

I'm happy to naïvely believe The Local are *not likely* to fleece our info for their future plans, but feel they want the legal OK from Users to use EF content so not to become mired in suits should someone's post be used in promotion. Their business is in appealing to advertisers - slowly slowly in Switzerland it seems - not in compiling 'best of complaints corner'.

Other commercial organisations have already done that without our say so.

Oh, and integrity isn't old fashioned when it comes to identity. Hiding behind multiple user names is rarely for honourable reasons. Blind eyes are turned for genuine reasons and mods are well aware of the serious side of identity revelation. Lives are affected so play it safe kids.

Peace and love.

Hold on! That's the best idea I've read all day; a "best of complaints corner", where we get to berate each other and bring our pet inadequacies to the forefront. No wait, that's about 90% of the posts, therefore the advertisers will be targeting the remaining 10%, who no doubt will be too smug to part with their cash on-line because they're savvy beasts with a general distrust of all things intraweb.

Luckily I have never received rep so noone will ever know my real name

Unfortunately when I set up my profile, I forgot about my "other" moniker PortaLou...dagnabbit! That would've been waaaay more subtle.

Re: How seriously are you considering departing EF permanently?

The turn of this discussion leaves a sad and bitter after taste. Yuck !

I don't like name calling in any way. It's uncomfortable.
Especially when it involves two lovely decent kind people.
Especially when the rest of us, some who are real friends in real life, then feel obliged to jump in to either take sides or try and make everybody laugh and feel reassured.

The past few pages are not worthy of the gentlemen you both are.
