Hey, why not practice what you preach?

Your post on the "I smiled because... thread" was totally out of order and certainly not civil nor respectful.
Worse. It was factually incorrect. It was Chamberlain who sold the Czechs down the river.

She won't let get facts in the way of a good passive-aggressive post...

Anyway, the bit given away, the Sudetenland was German-speaking and originally not part of Czechoslovakia.

I think Czechoslovakia did more harm to itself by half of it, the Slovak part, splitting in 1939 and joining the Nazis of it's own free will.

All of these. Yuck. And then to attempt to joke a about it? Needs a mod edit at least.


Why, MusicChick, do you do this? For what reason and to what purpose, do you post, over and over again, things that are bound to upset and offend others? And not just one or the other user but many users, repeatedly. What motivates you to behave in this way? What do you get out of it?

Three months ago, almost to the day, you wrote,

I can promise on my behalf to think more about the effect my opinions will have in threads for sure.
Is your horrible post on the "I smiled because…" thread the result of your thinking more about the effect of what you write?



I have tried, but I genuinely don't understand what you're about. There is a huge disparity between your pretty words of affirmation that you're wanting to work towards this forum's being for constructive discussion, a civil and respectful place for people to share, and that you will consider what you write before you post… and then what you actually do post.

Not all your posts are bad, but over and over again your posts erupt into being cutting, snide, condescending, rude and offensive. I can see no justification for such behaviour (by you, or by any other poster).
Either you know that you are causing trouble and pain, or you don't even realise it.
  • If you do know,
    but continue to post what causes trouble,
    then you are wilfully evil (which I don't actually believe to be the case).

  • If you do not know,
    and are still unable to understand, even though users have criticised you and explained to you what they found out of order in your posts,
    then there is something rather disturbing about your self-assessments of your posts and/or your ability to modify your behaviour.
I have written you careful mails, asking you please to desist from posting in a way that so many find unnecessarily provocative, aggressive or offensive. You have never replied to one. That is why - and after seeing yet another offensive post by you, that post to which others have reacted because it is thoroughly awful - I once again appeal to you, publically, to tread more carefully. I do not think it is reasonable, responsible adult behaviour to persist in a behaviour that is destructive, and sure to cause pain.

Please, please, MusicChick, this is one more appeal: just please don't make any more trouble. It isn't funny, it isn't a game, when it goes so far as to jangle the nerves of many users.

Once you've achieved that with your provocation, yet again, does it perhaps feel to you like a successful day's work? (I still want to hope that the destructiveness in your posts is not deliberate.) Or are you perhaps genuinely impervious to the many appeals that have been made to you?

Either way, that you continue to post in ways that offend is disturbing and perhaps disturbed. Please, stop.

Re: Mod coup

The recent post from MC is particularly problematic since we can't ignore mods.

Sorry but I don't think posting very controversial political points is compatible with being a mod, you can choose one or the other.

I think it's okay - but in a relevant thread -and not in a thread with a light-hearted tone designed to make people smile and be happy.

They have been for awhile.

I am a bit surprised at quite a few things she's posted and I can start to understand why, despite having a nice relationship with her...But of all people, if doropfiz is offended, I should probably pay more attention as she is the nicest person on here by far.

Dehumanising never worked in defusing conflicts. A sincere dialogue does the job, usually. Sometimes. But hey, EF is no different than the outside world.

posting this kind of stuff is truly offensive and beyond the pale- I would have reported it whomever had written it for that reason. Nothing to do with the 'personality' of the poster, Punkt Schluss.

Ok fair enough, then we can ignore the whole thread.

Even so I think it says something about EF that a mod can post something that is factually incorrect and not feel that they should self-correct, regardless of the viewpoint.

Re: Mod coup

As I said in the other thread, mods are members just like the rest of us. Not worth it to expect more. But as Belgianmum said above when someone creates an inappropriate post, it needs to be notes.

Doropfiz is indeed lovely and always tries diplomacy and reason first. These pleas however have fallen on deaf ears before.
