When you speak of deleted post without foul language or insults you are referring to this one right?:


"Honestly what the grand holy F are you talking about. Seriously you're delusional. It's taken off EVERYWHERE exactly as it was feared (yes, I've looked for myself, and so has EVERYONE who has eyes and ears, wow how you insult in your own special way). You can keep denying that distancing measures were beneficial and indeed curbed the spread (yes, even in Sweden), but EVERYONE knows how full of sh*t you and your kind are. Bend the numbers all you like. You need your head checked, man. DELUSIONAL."
Yup, that's the one. Looks perfectly fine to me. Thanks for bringing it back to life!

And if you don't get modded, it's not because the content doesn't break the rules but because none of the mods disagrees. I'm getting it now. Don't disagree with the folks who have the power.

I should be grateful because EF really reminds me of home!

Indeed power corrupts, more so at a lower level.

Dude. Not sure that's what the quote means. It's an Inigo situation.

The post was removed for insulting language against another EF member.

Not only are such insults intimidation, it‘s a clear pointer that you have lost the argument.

Were I still a mod here, I would have explained this to you and banned you for a week...
I’d have deleted that ist as well. It’s simply disrespectful.

Although the above post was correctly deleted, I think MC should step down as a mod and become a commoner again. She simply doesn’t have the finesse to mod appropriately and has caused countless posters to become angry and disillusioned.

I’m sure she’s a wonderful person but her strong opinions and omnipresence doesn’t sit pretty with modding expectations.

I wonder if this post will get me kicked off the forum?

Oh, I definitely wasn't going for respect. Tony Clifton lost my respect a long time ago. Everything in that comment was spot on. I even bleeped the profanity. I was flagged for being "uncivil". Sign of the times.

I don't mind that it was deleted. I just mind who did the deleting, and the context of it all.

I know. I come from a family full of Libertarians, and I've seen dozens of family and friends out themselves as right-wing crazies (and left-wing crazies – the political spectrum is a circle, the extremes look the same). Libertarians love to instigate. I've learned that you can either respond or stay quiet, all to the same effect. But my point isn't to change minds, but rather to show solidarity to other sane, balanced, big-picture folks around me. So when I go off on someone, it's not for them. It's to try and put an end to the acquiescent reputation of us lefties. Bring it on I say.

I think the take home is: don't care if your post is deleted. It was a post. In a forum. Nobody cares. Nobody died. It doesn't matter.

Meh. Like I said a moment ago:

Nobody died, so why delete it? This whole forum doesn't matter. So why even bother commenting.

I do it in the discussions for entertainment. Otherwise for the opportunity to help other people needing help.

This forum does, indeed, matter. To some, it is a place for fun and games, though different people have different ideas of what "fun" is. To others, it's a place to discuss ideas, some posters do so constructively, and other people unwittingly or deliberately turn the discussions into something that is bound to sting, crush or insult somebody.

Apart from the discussions and banter, this forum has been instrumental in helping many, many people. Some just with information. Sometimes by providing a safety net, emotionally, mentally, and practically. Some in finding work. And even: several people are alive today who might otherwise no longer be, since they appealed for help here on this forum, and really did received it, either in the posts only, or behind the scenes in private messages, or sometimes in gifts, and help, and generous care.

I hope that we don't lose that aspect of the forum. It is so good.

QAnon, conspiracy, libertarians? All those almost useless labels tells more about you than the others.
I'd never bothered reading up about QAnon until this weekend when I spotted a fair number of their Q banners at the London and Berlin demos. Until then, they'd been a faint, near insignificant blip on my radar.
