Sorry, but it is an opinion. Maybe a its even a shitty opinion. They are like assholes, every one has one. And I rather know someone's real view, than their sugarcoated, self censored, "political correct" opninion.

Here my opinion: You are delusional if you think you could get information on such a discussion thread.

Here my tips:

Use the ignore function and the take a break if you think you cannot handle it without getting insane or angry.

If you want to know (in English) what is going on in Switzerland look at :
https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...rnational.html
https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/topic/f...itics/44685906

If you want to know what is discussed in the newspaper around the world see:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Coronavirus/
So I'm delusional to expect or hope to get some useful information about new restriction announcements here in CH in a thread in which people post the new restriction announcements after they are made in press conferences here in CH?

Thanks for the link, but when I checked it, this is what came up:

Name:  link.jpg
Views: 655
Size:  49.9 KB

And by the way, you were just offering some "helpful information" here, in an online forum. Wouldn't I be delusional to acknowledge it?

Also, there is a difference between someone simply asserting an opinion and someone basically hijacking a thread every day with their relentless assertions that, in this case, masks are ineffective while simultaneously and continuously choosing to ignore all evidence that proves otherwise.

Yeah. My last comment on this thread: something is fundamentally wrong "in Denmark" (Sweden?) if someone of yours and Ace1's caliber is marginalised without any explanation.

Re: Mod coup

This has made me very glad that I handed in my ban stick years ago.



However, what is evident is that things have not changed much since the change of ownership happened.

No, it's called IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome), just like what this thread will give us and finally we'll know what triggers it!

Re: Mod coup

It's probably just another example of how passive aggressive she is. She likes to dish it out indirectly but then refuses to take or acknowledge any accountability when she's called out on her bull___.

EF is obviously not the right place for authoritative or even the latest news on coronavirus. You should use what everbody else uses for that: Facebook

If that "freedom of speech" breaches the policies of the platform they are on then yes, of course they can censor people.
The problem arises when breach of policy is applied selectively. If they were applied fairly you would have been banned multiple times by now for name-calling and personal attacks. The fact that you did not even get a temporary ban proves my point

A good Mod should look at the issues objectively and not let their personal views on a subject cloud their judgement. Unfortunately I see that some Mods on both side of the divide are not that objective.

I actually don't want you or anyone else banned. For me a bannable offence would be making personal threats or anything that is illegal/criminal.

I beg to differ. Facebook's posts are TOO DAMNED LONG. Everyone knows 12 words together on twitter are much better to convey important information with all the required nuance

Perhaps banning members who contribute to the discussions on EF (whether you agree with them or not) was the last straw?

Full circle should be reinstated as well, he didn't deserve to be banned
Full Circle was one of the most insidious members and extreme political trolls we have ever had on the forums; a genuinely malignant character, and I don't say that lightly. He should have been banned long, long before he was.

It seems the forum has had a few really extreme characters that engage in very active trolling in political and COVID and support each other during the process. Now that Full Circle and CodPeace have thankfully been banned, the two main characters seem to be you and TonyClifton.

It has long been a dream of yours and Pancakes to ban everyone with a dissenting opinion. This will ensure that you live an the virtual nirvana that you truly deserve and that EF will surely become!

Lol. (Facebook is a manipulation program; I don't use it).

Anyways I certainly don't ONLY use the EF as a source of information for info about the pandemic situation in Switzerland. But being that I am not at all fluent in German, it can be helpful in regard to trying to stay informed of new restriction announcements (e.g. to know when there is a new press conference).

You don't contribute to discussions ... you harass. When I publicly stated I was afraid to leave my house here in Bern, because I'm asthmatic and they have chosen to still hold the Christmas markets, you opened up a separate post to try and get people to join you at the Christmas markets.

That makes you a troll who laughs in the face at the misfortune of others & who actively goes out of their way to poke fun at them... not just a disagreement or act of free speech. You should have been banned, you took it too far.

And you complained about Bern Xmas market because you won't be able to go out. While you want everybody else to be close up in their homes, you don't think it's OK for you

Speaking about Bern Xmas market, who wants to go?

Susie-Q, you know I like you based on the little interaction we have had but why take anything anyone says online or even in real life, so seriously?

Now you are trolling, and if it doesn't stop you will receive a ban even if its the last moderation action I do.
