You could apply And what does it really matter? to the majority of threads on the forum.

Wrong. The majority of threads focus on answering questions about Switzerland, which is the purpose of this forum. However, allowing this kind of thread to go on erodes the quality of our forum. You may be getting more clicks in the short term but fewer clicks in the long term.

Just as a gentle reminder to both you and MC (who thanked your post):

Quote
[I]Moderation
The moderators of the forum are volunteers selected from the membership itself. They do not work for The Local but do this to try to make the forum a better place for everyone.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns about moderation or moderation policy, we are always happy to hear your feedback. We will always consider and discuss reasonable ideas so please feel free to let us know via private message (PM) or in the Forum Support sub-forum. Discussions or comments about moderator actions are discouraged in the forum itself, even where they involve you. If you want to enquire why your post was deleted or edited, ask one of us via PM; you should already have received a notification PM with a brief reason. Where your post has been deleted, the only people who can see comments are the moderators
and you. They are invisible to other members.[I] unquote
Nevertheless , you have been pretty vocal in publically criticizing certain mods and even publically demanding their resignation .

You have also given thanks to other members who did the same .

So why are you suddenly interested in keeping such discussions outside of the public domain ?

That is exactly what I am trying to achieve.

I sincerely hope that all the mods are in agreement on what they are trying to achieve. You’re working with a team, FMF.

Some people come here to be educated, some posters seek to educate others, however I believe the majority of people come here to be entertained hence the guests out numbering the members by roughly 40 times & the no of people who have previously deleted often return.

Historically there were far more meet up in person events, which was a compelling reason for people new to Switzerland to join. If they just need info, the search function will answer most questions.

The forum has become more tolerant of different viewpoints, so it would appear we are working as a team.

I’ve been warned to cool down my posts regarding MC, which I have. I realize FMF is trying to be a fair mod but I feel he might need a reminder on what a mod expectation is.

I personally think it has become more conservative but that may have to do with an exodus of some more liberal posters compounded with an influx of more conservative posters.

You have posted about ten times in this thread.
You have posted at least 50 times in the Austrian refugees thread, probably quite a bit more.
Neither is about Switzerland.

Careful with them stones.

You say that as if it’s a bad thing.
As anyone can see, the previous ‘liberal’ regime was all about agreeing with their viewpoint and getting shouted down or cancelled if you didn’t.
So far, this is not the current state of play.

So overall a more balanced view, mirroring the changes to the moderation team.

You will notice all the posts you write criticising me are left in place, the defrocked moderators would immediately delete / warn / ban, so clearly the team is more tolerant of an opposing view, which I believe is a good thing.

Re: Deleting My Account

conservative for Oly&Co. means , you say " ha, the orange man he is not the evil in this world. The others were even worse" then they go "AAAA conservativees"

so the problem is in how we define the words ...

Chuffs try to talk about how there was some mysogyny here is so laughable... hahaa , as if women are some xxxcxcxxx so they cant be also mocked if they say something silly,stupid etc .. so by defending women he even did some sexism.

Though posts keep getting deleted in what seems to be personal favor, by 3whishes in this case.

The posts she deleted in the "Dr" thread are still hidden.

i’ve also noticed I’m alone in my views whereas you and others are applauded with thanks. Times are a-changing.

If thats because people are becoming more tolerant, then it's a good reason.

You seem to have had plenty of posts thanked over the last few weeks in numerous threads including this one.

If people aren't afraid to express gratitude/agreement through thanks - it's a good thing. Groans are negative. Thanks are positive.

We are building a positive community.
