This is a public forum so please show some respect. If you want to make fun of a young woman, then send private whatapp texts to each other.
Excuse me, but why should Greta Thunberg be given special treatment? She's an adult an in the public eye. Have you not read how others are spoken about on this forum? The most obvious example that comes to mind is President Trump, there were those even wishing death on him!!

You can't have one rule for one and not someone else, despite how distasteful the comments are.

She’s so young and incredibly courageous. She also has Asperger’s syndrome.

So no, I think it’s in poor taste. Much like Trump making fun of a handicapped reporter. It shouldn’t be done, especially on a public board.
She is a tool in someone's else hands.

And a political has-been for most of people, she's soooooo 2019.



If the public eye wants to make her relevant once again.....I guess everyone's free. But, her relevance is precisely what a lot people complain about.

She's still a celebrity on EF and some keep bringing her up into every discussion. For humouring others, whatevs. It is in poor taste.

I personally agree she is only a teenager, I do not bother my mind with Miss Thunberg. I used to find her endeavours quite special, now I think she is either out of sight intentionally or the all mighty press has finally let her be. Perhaps am I not reading the tabloids, who knows.

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

She's a teenager, has-been, who cares .. only on EF they mention her....


But ARTE and France5 journalists have made different reportage where they've measured how much time the mainstream media talks about her and everything around it(ecology) and it's like 10hours for greta versus 3 min, for real ecologists fighting huge issues like fracking, Flint in Michigan, glyphosates, etc.

So yes, just a teen

So, the typical documentary released by journalists several years after the events have ended. Ironic, considering the latin roots of the word means daily.

These days you can follow events live on twitter, closer to the meaning of journalist.

Ridicule and expressing an opinion are not the same thing.
Depends. Ridculing someone who is rediculous is expressing an opinion.

Anyway, tell that to all the Trump and Biden haters, as well as the SVP haters!

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

LiB deleted a few posts last night listing them as off topic. Fair enough.

And yet this topic now continues with support of the mods. So how the heck should I interpret last night’s post deletion with today’s mod encouragement on the same topic? Feels like biased modding to me.

LOL. Your argumentation mode is like the one of a horse with blinds.

Last night Lib deleted posts. This morning he doesn't. Surprise! He's at work and unlike 90% of the members here he does not frequent EF while working.

Possibly he's not gonna like how many posts are waiting to be deleted by tonight.

A few people calling each other names is no reason to spoil the fun for the ones that stay snarky but polite.

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

komsomolez did that by calling me names.. like "you are full of shit" - because I said what I said about Greta.

That was welcomed by another person and olygirl ... because they accused me of saying how Greta is faking her disease.

Then I went to quote myself which I love doing to show how it is not true that I wrote how she fakes her illness.

Bottom line: no one really reads something to understand or develop... it's just scrolling and trying to take a side and punch the other one

it's just a sprint for "I want to win" , this is why we have comments like "full of shit", "horse doctors" "you have a mental illness" etc

I thought it meant over the top, I believe some were quite rude.

Why are you worrying, based on your posts yesterday? or do mod changes catch you by surprise when they happen?
