What happened to “swisstree” ?

Just came to my attention that our long-standing comrade “swisstree” is in a guest mode. WTF?

I see. Couldn’t deal with ins and outs of tedious Brexit process?

So EFs never die. They just come back as guests to haunt us.

Some people just get tired of having to muck through stupid trolling BS.

And continue to post as a guest? What's the point there?

Or you mean that old posts appear as guest? That make sense, technically.

I'm surprised that that is possible, since I know of some people who have been told, in the past, that it is not, and that your username and what you post on EF stays visible, no matter what (except if it is deemed delete-worthy by a mod).

It seems to me that many users go through phases of finding the general atmosphere in EF good, excellent, poor, annoying, hurtful, outrageously offensive and destructive, and then once again suddenly helpful, witty and very kind. Those of us who grow tired of the pain inflicted or the way things are twisted, tend to take a break, hoping that the aggession will diminish, though some walk away entirely.

I'm sad that Swisstree felt the need to break off completely. Over the years, I've very much appreciated her authenticity in her posts (even when, now and then, I haven't agreed with the content), and since she was so important here, for so many years, I feel something must have gone terribly wrong, for her, to want to delete her EF existence. That's quite tragic.

Swisstree, if you're still reading this, I'd like to thank you for your contributions: it's a pity that they're no longer there as a resource for others. I'd like you to know that you are sorely missed, and I hope you are with good folk.

A lot has changed since GDPR Doropfiz. So it can well be it wasn´t allowed in the past but now has to be allowed.

But Loz, who was banned, persuaded Editor Bob to have his whole history deleted. So there's a new precedent set. Who's next?

That would seem very logical .. One can require pretty much any organisation to delete all records these days .. Within the realms of legality.

The amount of hours I've spent training on record retention, legal hold, right to this, rights to that.. Jeeeze

Really really dislike seeing anybody leave.
We all are poorer when one decides to leave 😶
I hope swisstree comes back.

Funny that. The legal advice the other forum I moderate is that since you're effectively anonymous and you've chosen to post in the public domain, there's no right to have the posts deleted.
