Re: A minimum of respect please?
 
the new owners buried there heads and hoped it would all blow over, they paid a bit of lip service with the meets, but never listened, and surprise surprise people are still leaving

oh well

I think most people are aware of the other forum now, it would be very interesting to know how EF's traffic stats have been holding up recently.

the local have no respect for the members here, really, they couldn't care less, they only care about traffic, ad revenue, and posting there totally worthless shit 'news' stories, the mods are stuck between a rock and hard place.

This on the other hand...

What have you possibly contributed to the forum other than stupid pictures of cats? Nothing? Ah well, I rest my case then.

Enough to keep people interested. Or to contact me outside EF.
or be consistent enough to not post stuff like

Loving it, could we stay on topic of why this farewell of Porsch have been thrown in the trash and leave bitter comment and attack for an other thread?

Come on, guys, do we really need the friction?

Why attack one another..I am not talking about the trash move here, but members getting in eachother's hair.

Happy holidays, tout le monde.


I still have to buy presents, finish a few more batches of cookies, clean up, jebus. And mod. And have another class to teach and for the 6th time run through 20 xmas carols :msncrazy:

Have some eggnog, everyone.

Your friend has taken an exit that does not allow him unfortunately stick for himself.

What a bummer.

People, I know self deletion is dramatic, but why not just log off. Why grand stand. The noise seems to be an advertisement, that last Porshe's note actually really was. Too bad he went, really.

I am sure the quality of the other place does not need the help of advertising.

Still don't answer why to put a farewell in the trash.

I honestly think porshes goodbye thread was a good thread and he just wanted to say goodbye and he wasnt disrespectful at all, neither was he trying for a desperate call to grab attention. Unlike other members attempts and their threads were never closed... Unfair!

Re: A minimum of respect please?
 
Newsflash : You guys are not in kinder garden anymore.

Or atleast I think.

Ouchie, Nil : It was sad how his leaving was handled, but thats how it is here, as we have seen. So, there isnt a point in bringing this up.

LiB : Dude, you need to lighten up. We know this has hit you the hardest.

That will be all.

Tune in on the next thread for another episode of Dr. Phil.

I'm a bit worried. You're only talking about mods, right? You're not expecting the commoners like me to also be respectful and polite are you? :eek::eek::eek:

What does that mean?

It sounds to me as if the EF is scared of defectors and is trying to prevent it by East Berlin style walling off of references to the outside world.

If people want to leave they will leave, so deleting such links is not helping the EF survive in any way. But frank and open discussions are what has made the EF so strong and attractive, and part of that is the ability to link to and cross pollinate from outside discussions and threads to include rather than exclude those communities. It seems to me that the EF owners are on a dangerous path of denial and splendid islotaion.
