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

Actually I just thanked the post you linked belated.

I’ve already distanced myself from this place so it doesn’t really matter to me.

I just don’t 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.
I don't like it too, but it's representative of the real world. Just look at the vaccine intake rates and basically between 1 out of 2 and 1 out of 3 people share the opinion that bothers you. So, distancing from EF won't solve anything, the world outside is just like that.

Back to EF, Covid denial is just a couple guys. The vocal majority is frustrated by public policies, but don't deny there's a virus out there killing people.

Frustration is larger on EF because it's an expat forum. People suffers for policies in Switzerland, back in home country, and for any other country where their relatives live. When things are OK in CH, people find a way to suffer for what happens in Brazil, or the US. When things are OK in Sweden, people stresses for India. Not sure if this is healthy, but people is free to worry for whatever happens around the world and share it on a public forum.

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.
2 mods supported an EF member who was previously banned for this particular action.

If you do not see a problem with that and that this person was allowed back on here and has zero regrets for the action that got him banned, then you are clearly part of the problem. (Which your recent actions have shown to be obviously true)

You don't get to say who's part of what problem, just because you disagree with something.
My recent action? Right. It is unfortunate that you don't see through that curtain of perceived injustice.

Actually I know of only one covid-denial person on EF and I got the impression it's not a guy (but hey, here you never know).

Strange that people who don't want to get vaccinated are declared covid-denials and others (who are even vaccinated!!!) and disagree with the approach and the measures taken on the covid problem are also covid-denials.

You may not be able to read this post as I might have been the lucky pick.

And you banned a few people for disagreeing with them ... it is amusing how hypocritical you are.

Being a victim of targeted bullying is not about disagreeing with them... it was a personal attack which I thought is what people should actually be banned for.

Are you going to ban me now and suggest “I take a beer or a break” because “I’m wasting your time” by calling you out on your actions?

I did not.
Pancakes - for telling somebody to **** off
Tom1234 - For going on a diatribe because his post got deleted (it's all in the open for you to see. Look at his latest posts)
Rufus - Has been discussed with the mod team and everybody agreed (except roegner who didn't have an input). She does not provide any value to the forum and despite the warnings, the backdoor second chances, she still decides to not let anything go and beat a dead horse.

Why would I ban you for you saying "take a beer/break"?

Thanks for the summary.

So "does not provide any value" is at least part of the reason for getting banned. The mind boggles.

No it is not. The combination of that along with incessantly disrupting the forum, instigating is what caused the ban.

She was one of the few people who stood up for me, so in my eyes she has tremendous value.

Hypocrisy at its finest.

And the whole Pancakes thing was hilarious ... didnít even spell the word out and was only reacting after repeated targeted harassment and baiting by the trolliest of trolls who never receives any consequences for her actions.

So that's why she shouldn't be banned? Of course.

From a purely personal perspective I agree with you but would you agree that her posts have been very antagonistic and as above essentially moany?

I'm delighted to see that I'm no longer in the running for that title but as olygirl has pointed out - people can moderate their ire and move on - this particular's horse dust is still getting belted ad nauseum and it's getting very dull.

Then perhaps there should be a mass ban if you think antagonistic and moany people is a just cause.

I’ve also written things I regret and I was warned and the comment was deleted ... why wasn’t this the case with Pancakes? The ban ended up being good for her personally, but it was hardly fair.
