Greta became famous because she is tied to a company that is doing an incredible job at PR and lobbying. It is a true masterclass in how to use children to get what you want.

Ultimately the reason you see her in the news so much is because companies are trying to get a slice of the green pie.

They see potential for huge new energy industries and they want to be there at the beginning, they want to drive the change.

And the mastery comes by making it seem like this little girl is doing it all for herself when she isn't.

I don't doubt she believes in the stuff, and it isn't a bad thing to be campaigning for, but the hoodwinking and gullibility of the media is what drives people who have open eyes so mad.
The question is ... which PR agency has been hired by the mods so there is always someone talking about them ?

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.
Thank-you olygirl for having the courage to keep fighting for things to improve when so many of us have given up. Wishing you a nice day ahead.

It has nothing to do with courage. We seek dialogue when somebody is not happy. As stated previously, when I moved some posts. With an explanation. But instead of understanding, all I received was further bickering and red blobbies. Can't help you to feel more welcome, if you fail to read and interact.

I have tried to interact and have received nothing but attacks & even laughter at my fears all supported by current mods. You do not seek dialogue, you have regularly banned people unreasonably for minor faults. Don't expect there to be acceptance and understanding when you cannot practice the same.

Holding on hope The Local will take action, only time will tell.

Minor faults are personal attacks and calling names. This is something everyone agrees on, I hope so.

I've seen that the bans in the last weeks have been only for people that lacks the self control to take a break. Go out for a walk, grab a beer or a cig, take another hour to reply...but no, the 1 min reply is quite an issue.

On the other hand, the mods act no longer as the thought police, this is good.

If you're referring to https://www.englishforum.ch/3347461-post186.html? Then it was an open discussion and I don't see any reason for a mod to interact. Crying wolf at what you perceive as unjust is not interacting. Interacting is: I have a problem with a and b. Could you please explain why it lead to c.

Then a lot of other users should have been banned countless times. This is really a tedious job on EF. I don't think those two recently banned were the worst we have seen here and usually got away with it.

As for thought police, pleeeease.....old moderating team was pretty much non interventional too. Apart from a few notorious cases. Sure, they banned a few chaps here who can't get over it, but other moderators are doing the same now. So where is the improvement?
What exactly you felt like writing here and couldn't?

Me too.

One of the previous mods has red blobbed me like 8 times in a thread. I find it amusing now. I have to give him the credit for changing his attitude after that and for not stalking and attacking me on other threads, like it happened with some other current one who shall not be named. lol

Ah but you're not with the times. It goes: I have a problem with and be, could you please ban them. And while you're at it, I'm sure c will go out of (my) line soon too so why don't you just ban that one too.

Iíve already distanced myself from this place so it doesnít really matter to me.

I just donít want to see a Covid-19 denial free for all anymore...because that is exactly what this site has turned into & has chased away some of the best people on the forum.

Since you quote my post here, I deleted this later as I realized you were in the process of moving the Covid posts into the proper thread. When I made the comment, it looked like only selected posts were moved / deleted - but of course you were still on it.

The banning of the 3 members during the weekend is still something I don't understand, and the explanations for Rufus and Tom made no sense to me.

My problem is here when the person doubled down on what he said and even two mods supported it by liking it.

So what, he's free to think and say that. He's allowed to speak his mind, just like you're allowed to speak yours. Did the entire mod team thank the post? No.
We're primarily members and then moderators. Just because feel strongly about a certain topic and think that people with opposing opinions are wrong, doesn't mean that we can exclude others from the conversation.
