I assumed that they left because they were scared of haxors.. ?
What a strange assumption to make.

I think there are far bigger and more important issues driving people away from EF than a few pathetic hacking attempts.

His flounce post was pretty hard hitting! didn't mince his words did he.
A few things on there I certainly didn't know, who'd have thought it
Any chance you have a screen shot... it must of been deleted when everything was deleted.

I always liked his shaggy dog posts ever since I joined pre moving here and asked about toilet seats.

Re: db noooooooooo!!!!!!

Now im confused - was there a goodbye flounce post or not? And more importantly, does a duck really have a corkscrew penis?

fare thee well, DB

It's a great shame. But the toxicity on here at times is just awful. Complaints and requests have been made to help turn the tide, but they have been ignored, ridiculed, twisted out of shape, insulted and shut down. Leaving makes a great deal of sense, sad as it is.

Well you either know absolutely nothing or you're a reincarnation of a banned troll. Either way... thank you for the valuable insight.

I don't know the guy, it wasn't about him, it was about your whinge about 'toxicity'. It's a public internet forum, ignore what you don't like.

Re: db noooooooooo!!!!!!

I am so very saddened that several of our most valued, and valuable, members have decided to leave the forum. EF will be a poorer place without them.

So to DB, and Swisstree, and Sandgrouder, those who are still contemplating leaving, and many other long time members who have faded away:

I am very grateful for your time and contributions. You all have helped me over a fair few Swiss hurdles and brought a smile to my face on many an otherwise grey day. So thank you all, very much.

I'm sure I am not alone - many of us arrived in Switzerland similarly confused, without support, uncertain of what we had got ourselves into. EF was the place many of us finally found a welcoming soundboard and indeed a lifeline.

I wish we could get back to that spirit.


---

To the posters who seem to revel in promoting a more toxic - yes, I am using that word deliberately - tone to the forum:

Please take a moment to remember why EF exists, why it was meant to be something different from the usual gumpf out there in the ether, and read Mark's opening post here:
