So are Editor Bob, 3wishes, LiB, and Mirfield.

Calling mods insulting names can't be a great way to avoid a ban.
Is Mirfield still a mod?
Both him and LiB are pretty much inactive in here at any time so it does beg the question as to why they are still moderators.

I agree, offensive name-calling of that sort is uncalled for and should be dealt with peremptorily. Not much I can do about it right now, though.

No, but I would love an EF where I can go to the coronavirus thread and not have to weed through hundreds of posts where some anti-mask dude is relentlessly trying to convince the world that masks are useless or that the virus is no big deal, restrictions are unnecessary, etc. in order to find more pertinent information regarding the status of the pandemic here in Switzerland and/or the world in general.
maybe start a separate thread for just that? maybe that solves a lot of problems for those who don't want to argue with TC.

There is absolutely no need for that whether MusicChick is to blame or not. You don't have to like her but being civil in general is what you should do as a decent human being.

if only there was some way to moderate such comments...


oh wait...nevermind....

Yup, mods get a larger PM storage allowance. I'd forgotten.

All of you who have tried to PM me today, sorry that I can't receive your messages. "Whoever" messed with my mod status also disabled PMs and did a couple of other things.

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

some serious paranoia here!

i think normal allowance is 500 messages
Yes, that's what I have now. Thanks for clarifying, so I guess it was a result of the group change. I never knew that we had more than that before. It's not as if I ever wanted to keep all the old messages.

And there's no need for paranoia when someone has actually been messing with things - I too wondered if the PM thing was deliberate.

I did already confess in another place that I am the hacker.

My next steps are to promote MC to the editor and to consign 22, Ace, and others to EF virtual Siberia to expiate their sins by writing confessions.

LiB hadn't even logged in to EF for several weeks, let alone posted, until today (what a coincidence!), so I guess he has a lot of catching up to do.
I emailed him to warn him.

Both him and LiB are pretty much inactive in here at any time so it does beg the question as to why they are still moderators.
There had been some discussions, and indeed one other long-absent mod was recently removed, but both of them do still chip in from time to time so it was felt unnecessary to drop them.

Editor Bob checks in occasionally. He's not always around.

I think, but am not sure, that 3Wishes is at work.

LiB hadn't even logged in to EF for several weeks, let alone posted, until today (what a coincidence!), so I guess he has a lot of catching up to do.

Mirfield no longer has moderator rights, unfortunately; he gave them up a while ago after he left Switzerland.

From looking at the groups. Yes.

I was inactive on the EF for a few years and then came back on last February or so, in order to help stay informed regarding the pandemic and any new restrictions announced for CH
For me "last February" would be February 2019. February 2020 would be just "February". Interested to know what everyone else thinks
