Re: Double standards

Cmon, guys, free or not, it needs to be done well, etc etc.

Nil, I answered a little back. I think the mods view certain things a lot more related to our lives here in CH than other issues.

I am not gonna defend why Cute things kids say was let to stay where it was because I have a little one and omg she says so many cute things . But because I know our kids growing up in Switzerland are going through very special linguistic phase. We have many threads on kids multi lingo situ here, they are all in Family/Health. I so see the similarity, when even within the Cute thread, you have multilingual references, mismatched languages and other fun stuff related to language development of kids in here.

I think that differs quite a lot from generic musings over relationships, or somebody's angry mom who is not in CH, generally the stuff that all families all over the world go through. Sure, all kids say cute things. But our Swiss kids, growing up in CH, say the ultimately cutest things, n'est pas, since it's a mix of cultures, languages, and sometimes their slightly bizarre comprehension or lack there of, of how they function or are supposed to function within the Swiss context.

Re: Double standards

Whilst DK may have been a little "direct" in his comments, I think he has a point regarding double standards in the transport forum.

I don't understand why we can't have car related discussions, when in the internet/phone forum there is a discussion whenever some new handset comes out. Which is not Switzerland related either. I don't see the difference!

Re: Double standards

One of my threads was moved 3 times in a few minutes by 3 different mods. I thought it was funny, and well 'c'est la vie'. Not the end of the world, really, no need to take it personally.

Nobody can please everybody all the time, let alone volunteers who give up so much time to make this and other Forums running smoothly (even if I myself don't always agree )

Re: Double standards

I'm one of those little people that joined a "relatively long time ago" in 2007. I make really small,not that frequent but sometimes helpful contributions. To be honest I dont like getting into (or am not brave enough for) the argy bargy and perhaps dont post as often as I would;although I enjoy the wonderful irony and humour on EF. For one, I'm past the teenage years of angst. Although my posts are modest, I joined EF before the founder's untimely passing away. I cant believe though, all the bickering and angst that has gone on lately. There are, as I am well aware, issues regarding the marketing/legal proposals of the now owners. I have considered leaving too. But really is this thread what was intended? Deep breaths and as you were.

And here ( and I hope I have managed to "quote") is my quote:

In Memoriam: Mark Fyvie (1972-2008)



This forum was a significant part of Mark's life and we have thus modified his profile to reflect the role that he has played in many lives in Switzerland; he has touched us all.

Mark summed his ideas up perfectly here; we should all re-read this and thank Mark for the effect he has had on all of our lives.



We believe that it would be a suitable gesture to enable Mark's reputation counter and I point you to this post where Mark asks you how you found the forum.

You can make a significant gesture to what Mark created by clicking on the icon and giving him some reputation. We all know that he deserves it.

Any more news will be posted here; our thoughts are with his fiancée, his family and his friends. We were all his friends.

Goodbye Mark - Rest in Peace

*Please note: replies to this thread should only be tributes to Mark*

Re: Double standards

Having standards is considered a good thing. So surely having two is even better?

Re: Double standards

Woah. This thread has gone off on one

I'm sorry I started it now......posting under the influence of hormones is worse than drunk posting!!!

My conclusion: It's just a forum. It's not worth getting ones knickers in a twist
