Short answer no.
Certain members are having a tiff with rumours of inadvisable physical proximity, Ace is acting moderately more moderatory, St2lemans appears to have misunderstood the role of undergarments in relation to womens liberation.
Also there is misogyny and misandry about the place, V__'s banned again and we're none the wiser as to what actually happened.
Any person coming to EF for the first time reading this thread will think “what a wonderful community, let’s be a part of that!”

Re: Mod coup

Well, considering the attention this thread is getting someone in charge needs to do some explaining, if only to shut up most of the posters here. Given the way this thread is threatening to go off the rails there are several posters here I'd probably give temporary bans to.

As I understand it, Editor Bob is a paid employee of The Local, the company that owns this forum. As such, his job is to do what he (or his employers) deem necessary to ensure that the revenue generated by the Englishforum keeps trickling or pouring into The Local's coffers. No more, no less.

I'm sorry, is it me who wrote that
Did I write that to you out of the blue or was I responding to your post directed at me? No that video was definitely not mean spirited! It was making fun of the whole drama on the forum and of everyone. Either way it is not important any more. I had nothing for or against you until now. Shame on you!


RufusB etc, you might not like me but don't throw untrue accusations. I have not stalked anyone online or offline ever in my life!


Yes JackieH, sought!

Shame on you. The whole exchange was provoked by you. I haven't addressed any post here directly to you but you kept making all sort of remarks and jokes. I didn't find them funny. You then commented I'm mean (the irony) and now cry victim. Wow. Sublime.

Seriously, let's leave it at that. I proposed using the ignore function.

No she doesn't. A woman standing up for herself doesn't automatically become a man hater.
Thanks mate, I'm quite the opposite of a man hater.

Didn't want to be part of the derailment, I just felt after yet another not so nice reply to my post, I had to say something.

I will be only watching this thread from now on. Y'all have fun and be safe on that fast moving train.

Oh I'm well aware of that (actually nearly wrote it myself). But if he doesn't appear I'll draw my own conclusions.

I want to collect from you for your ‘KFC will never make money in CH as the locals don’t like fast food’ comment.
Did I make a bet on that?

Anyway, they'll never make money in Basel if they don't open a restaurant here.

They have one down here, drive by it every day, don't know if they make any money as I've never been there.

The prescient. A toilet paper shortage could strike again at any time, Tom, and there aren't always plantain leaves at hand when you need them.

Considering the frenzy of unbanning and restoration of rights etc. that has been happening today, I propose that omtatsat is immediately unbanned.
In fact, I believe that a better case could be made for his unbanning than that of some who have benefited from the recent clemency.
What would he do with his alt account?

ETA: This one too. Ouchboy. (I can neither confirm nor deny.)

You're taking this too seriously. Greenmount and Pancakes usually write "stalker!" on an empty post and only then scroll up and down to see whom to attach it to depending on their mood. It's part of their charm really, be a feminist and respect them for what they are, not for what you want them to be

Nope. But there are some pretty troubling views about women. Oh and GM has a potential stalker.
Some things never change.
