Maybe site traffic was plateauing so needed more drama?

I'm not so sure, Ace. Are your mod powers back?
Yeah, I amended my post when I spotted yours from a few minutes ago.

Still only got a limited power though, I guess like the other mods had yesterday.

And I have my mod powers back. (Warning, look out... )

I'm confused. Even more.
V_ was very much trying to provoke in this thread, the serial groans and smartarse comments were bound to come back to bite him eventually.

Perhaps you could perma ban Fatmanfilms before going out in a blaze of glory?

I’d also ban the term “snowflake.” It’s a demeaning word that is hurtful and borders on “bullying.”
What other term would you use for that white stuff that descended from the sky the other day?

I would, obviously, but I want to collect from him on the bet on the CHF/GBP exchange rate that we made years ago.

Yes, but this was not a serious discussion thread any more. After 25 pages there is only so many ways you can ask "What is going on?"

Ok, so what is going on now? Are 22's Tesla ban cannons back online? Will FMF and Ticino Tom become Mods too?

Considering the snowflakes that fall from the sky can kill you, I don't understand why use the term to describe harmless people in first place.

One of my favourite signs I've seen at a anti-Trump protest is:

"Just remember, if we are the snowflakes, winter is coming."

Re: Mod coup

I just love snowflakes - our garden is all wonderful and sparkly with them right now ...




but a very serious question, if someone is on your ignore list, and they become a Mod - can they remain on ignore? Hope so - coat, get, go.

Lets be honest, it's not clear cut that you will win, within last 12 months trading range, 9 months is a long time in FX. Imagine if a deal is signed this week!

Of course I will pay if I lose, no cock & bull story about paying a charity in France via a friend as I don't trust sending money using a bank account

So Editor Bob has taken over all modding duties by himself, do we think? Good luck with that.

I've not heard anything from him, nor, I assume, have the other ex-/partial-mods who I've been in contact with.

I'm definitely now working on the assumption that this is an action of EB / the Local, not a hacker or another mod, as it's clear now that he's actively aware of this thread and the overall situation.


Edit: I sit corrected, it looks like he's now reversing some of the changes, 22Y and me are now back in the mod group, it seems.

And just as I was starting to enjoy not having to monitor the cororonavirus thread all the time...

welcome back to the mod group, you and 22 yards. I assume Roegner is back too?

It's mostly now used when the group thought is challenged. Or something.

Can they really? How big does a snowflake have to be? Or is it a "drop a penny off the Eiffel Tower" deal?
