Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

Because I'm not pregnant anymore.

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

How does this thread contribute value to EF and why hasn't it been deleted yet?

No silly it's because ALL those nasty people left - durr get with it
And many of the rest of us left before that because of those nasty people.

To be honest though, as mentioned to many EFers in THE REAL WORLD the past week, once I stopped working at evil UBS, I didn't find the need to waste my life away on here anymore.

Maybe it's time to organise a weekend drinks one last time, as the natives are definitely restless on here.

You people are so wrong. I get red blobbed for a remark on this thread. Aggression is alive and well on the forum.

The natives are perfectly calm and happy but well up for a meet-up and drink

Interesting, I have never ever looked my blobs.

Why would I be interested or care about people whom I have never met marking my posts with green or red.
Much more interesting if they post a comment that I can choose to reply to, or not.

No reason you should care. I, personally, find it very interesting to know who my friends and who my "not friends" are.

Wait until they hear of this thread then... ...its sure to make them curious (especially if you mention their names).

That could be the start of a long discussion

On the lines of "Are people you have contact with in on-line forums potential friends or is their on-line persona so far away from their real personality that friendship is not possible".

Contrariwise for the same reason can you make "not-friends"?

In reality you could, for example, find you have more in common with the real people behind the "not friends" than with the "friends".

Nah, I'm here as much as I ever was, as ready to hand out reds to the deserving and greens to positive contributors as ever. Really, when people make comments like "all Swiss are to blame for my problem" I don't much care if they're blowing off steam - I'd smack 'em down in real life, too.
About "I'd smack 'em down in real life, too"

Reminds me somehow of Don Quixote attacking wind mills; you really think people take any notice of red blobs?
Apart from some unfortunate insecure people who should not be bullied.

If you are looking around and can't see the nasty one that everybody else can see.....then, guess what?

Anyway, I'm not really sure i understand the thread. All I'd say is that i find that most of the people here post intelligently and smartly, and there is the occassional clever comment in a thread which isnt really connected but adds a smile to the proceedings. For example, the "i can't get my earring out" thread could be classified as a little odd, but the addition of Assassin's penis added, as it always does according to those ladies who have ever crossed his path, a much needed belly laugh

I actually prefer it to the past when those who have taken their groupthink elsewhere used to be a little too knowing, tight and snide for my taste

Re: Why doesn't anyone argue anymore on EF?

Just discovered that Phil_MCR gave me a neutral rep a couple of weeks ago. What's that all about? A grey blobby that carries no rep weight. Is this part of the new blander and de-sanitised EF??

Indeed. I wanted to congratulate Assassin for having the most popular penis on the forum but his inbox is full.
