Re: Mod coup?

Maybe they have been following a „logic“, or strategy. PS Mods - where are your Santa hats

Yes, it's a relief valve. Sorry, I'm an engineer and I can't help it.
I agree. Though I'd optimize a tad.

Last time I went for walk with a mod earlier this year, they mentioned that it was in exchange to not get banned again. One of the best ever mods on EF.
Is this a way to get him to walk with you again..

I'm trying to use the lightest touch possible on this thread because as 3Wishes and others have pointed out, it has effectively become the Really OT space that many have asked for over the years -- and the idea there was to have an unmoderated area. This thread is not the ideal way to supply such a space, but it has become an area for people to let off steam -- much of it directed, fairly or unfairly, at one or more of the mods -- and if it helps keep some aggression off the rest of the forum, that's probably a good thing.

Repeated, untruthful attacks on me or others aren't cool, though. I get a bit fed up with the same lies being repeated over and over again.
A forum, or any other social media, isn't a place to let off steam. If anyone has concerns/complaints about anything to do with the forum then they should start a thread about. Just slagging each other off is not the purpose of any social media.

It‘s Friday, right? Oh no, he has legs of steel, given. He has one of the many cutest dogs in the World, tick. Intelligent, empathic and educated, as well as Street / World aware. He is a super-guy, all around - tick, tick. Shame my daughter is already given.

Despite this, and even if I wanted to revive my former dating life (which I have no intention of), he would be the wrong gender.

You believe "this particular thread has been following a "logic" ", OK
You can do well by reading the below so you can better understand why I used "" around the word logic.


https://www.macmillandictionaryblog....uotation-marks

Just to make it even easier and here I use quotation marks as in a citation:

"...Quotation marks can also highlight that a word is being used somehow peculiarly – a writer may wish to indicate irony, inaccuracy, or scepticism, for example; used this way, they’re called scare quotes. In the line: At the party I met a teacher, a journalist, and an ‘artist’, the scare quotes around artist act as a distancing device, probably signalling doubt about the person’s credentials as an artist. The effect is similar to the Irish phrase mar dhea..."

Took a walk on the wild side?

Rockers are far better than mods in any case!

And gender is fluid, thus there is no WRONG gender!

Do you truly believe that my ancient eyes can see these tiny quotation marks?

EF is apparently like the US: the true and honest popular vote doesn't matter, all decisions are done by an invisible cabal called The EF Electoral College headed by the even more metaphysical EB

Metaphysical Cabal sounds great.

I like handspun and dyed Japanese yarn and 2mm pink guitar picks. Wax crayons are awesome, too. Jazz music sheets.
