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.
I should nominate you the poster of the week. Spot on.

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.
Are you alright?
That's precisely the type of time-consuming nonsense we're addressing at the moment with the local. It simply cannot be that you and the likes who feel the need to nit-pick and question every possible mod decision to blurt out their discontent into the room and then expect to be taken serious.
I deleted offensive messages, all the while the discussion was turning OT and personal. I'm sorry for not being omnipresent to oversee every possible activity on this here forum; contrary to some, I do have a peripatetic schedule and a life.

Just like your red-blobbie comment, you completely missed the plot and fail to understand why a decision was made, even when given an explanation. This is for transparency-sake. No matter how reasonable one tries to be with you, you thoughtlessly yell out the first thing that comes to mind. Like your Trump comment in this thread, which has no relevance. While you're at it, why didn't you also mention anti-vaxxers, the abortion topic or religion. It would have ensured that everybody gets a shot at being offended and this will yet be another thread going down the drain, because some people can't control themselves.

You always come across as bitter and up for a fight. Why? My posts were also deleted yesterday by LiB, do you see my hyperventilating?

Don't be a victim always, at least for your own mental health!

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

olygirl, how can you spend so much time of thinking about the mods is amazing. Unless they're really some hotties and really irresistible then okkk but I doubt because this would've been discussed on the forum somewhere ....

I suggest you open a separate topic dedicated to them because this way we have 4-5 topics where it's a constant retrospective talk and then current mod talk events

omg is this some neo hegelian dialectic or what ?

So you accuse the mods of being biased but only because you dont want them to be accused of being biased in both cases by yourself since you're the only one deeply intersted in the mods and biased moderating?

It’s called levity.

Nevertheless, I‘ll humour you and particularly as you claim to like to quote yourself, I‘ll quote myself from the original Reddit thread as it appears to be pertinent here too…

*Edit word* me you lot are mental!

This is supposed to be a place where non-natives (see what I did there to avoid the expat/immigrant thing) come for help understanding this wonderful, but at times confusing country. And at times maybe asking where to find English bacon or brown sugar. Hell sometimes we even meet up for drinks!

Maybe it's time to take a breather and remember that it's just a forum and stop worrying about perceived sleights and having the last word. Despite what you think this isn't the last battle ground between good and evil.

I try to post only on topics where I think I can help or where I need help. I hope that's where my posts broadly fall. Being an opinionated prick on either side of an argument falls into neither category. I save that for real life.

PS as the reasonable guy in the middle, it does seem that only one side of the debate is trying to shut it down. If that sentence makes you angry, it's time to reflect.

PPS Reddit is for porn

The thread here was derailed:

A later post from that derailer, continuing to derail:
https://www.englishforum.ch/3348243-post162.html


Likely, it's a better use of all our time and energy, that we assume it's inevitable sometimes, and, therefore, alright and undeserving of any further comment, so long as it's clearly not being done to silence or demean.

You are doing exactly what so many others have accused the previous mods of: being biased in your modding. Keep it up and I will leave, but not without informing the local of my reasons why.

Re: Board whiteout ?? Reddit ??

And women...

Liked particularly this part, the rage Greta's activism provoked has been discussed in other articles but it's always reassuring to read another one....

Quote:
But who’s the real freak – the activist whose determination has single-handedly started a powerful global movement for change, or the middle-aged man (and women) taunting a child with Asperger syndrome from behind the safety of their computer screens?
Oh, and the last bit

Quote:
Why is Greta Thunberg so triggering? Because of what she represents. In an age when democracy is under assault, she hints at the emergence of a new kind of power, a convergence of youth, popular protest and irrefutable science. And for her loudest detractors, she also represents something else: the sight of their impending obsolescence hurtling towards them.

Have you had any of your posts arbitrarily deleted without reason? Have you received infraction points for "trolling" for reasoned posts backed up with links? Have you been threatened with banning without good cause?

If the answer to these three questions is no, then I don't think it's the same as the others.

p.s. forgot to add hiding behind moderator privileges to dish out personal abuse and break forum rules!!

Read LiB's post to me above. My Trump comment about mimiking a disabled person was very much in line with what some people were/are doing to Greta.

I don't troll but many posters here do. Unfortunately, because we have a very conservative modding team at the moment, they have no issues with it.
