I saw that some time ago. There is one like that at Geneva lunch as well - I chuckled .. they did say EF was a difficult forum to navigate, but a useful resource.

I'm never mentioned anywhere! I feel really very neglected, especially as I was quite "vocal" on that thread regarding my "closed minded views" about Esperanto.

Ah well. Must try harder.

Re: Rather Poor close mindedness At englishforum (blog post found)

Ah. There I am.... But really comment-shmoments, I want to be focus of the article! I'm STAR!!!!! Not a bit player.

Seriously, what does it say about me that I'm informed enough about Esperanto to know that it's not a very useful "language"? And really I wasn't that negative about it at all. It's just not very useful.

Oh, and it's a fact that there are as many Klingon speakers as Esperanto speakers.

Ok. I'm done now.....

In the last hour or so though, the whole thread has been made private, i.e. viewable only to forum members.
Aha! There is a system behind this. It's a conspiracy

So, what is the real motivation to ban so many people? Could it be that the English Forum Switzerland and The Local are just fearing Esperanto and true information about it, as do so many translators and interpreters?
Good Lord *wipeeyes* can you possibly top this?

I think they feel Esperanto to be a dangerous rival for English and they just fear it.
They didn't really say that we fear Esperanto will take over English?!
Delusional much?
