Possibly? Possibly? I post more orange soups than anyone else...maybe that will get the thread shut down.

Well, sh!t then, you all can just make your own dinners.


Yeah but over there the baton gets passed on to the next to dominate the thread. Acmilan had a long go at it, I had my cheese-cake project, you got your orange soups (as you call them) now and who knows who and what is next?

You are very welcome to dominate for a while, we know you will leave space for the next and while you do your 75% it's all straight from your kitchen and your dining room (teasing us with your wonderful flower-bouquets while you're at it) and links only come on demand, a different source every time too.

Re: Deleting My Account

I started the "Request the reopening of the Trump post-presidency thread " in the hope of flushing out the mod who anonymously closed the Trump post-presidency thread.

So far the only credible reason for closing that thread seems to be the adoption of the cancel culture.

I can't say I've ever looked at that thread as I'm not the erstwhile president's biggest admirer, but why don't you just start a new thread on the same topic? If the thread you refer to is still there you can link to it in the explanatory initial post.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with "The Hill".

But if we would want to read it on daily basis and exclusively we could all do this ourselves.
On a Forum like EF I expect variety, different opinions ("you couldn't make this up" as the only regular comment is not an opinion).

Maybe marton gets paid for this. Then we could think about putting it under "commercial"?

edit: Actually, amogles beat me to it.
To be fair, anyone could have posted on that so the door to more variety was wide open.

the other credible reason could be that many expressed being against it. some by properly voting no, others in far more expressive manner and all in all that voting thread did not attract many.

Yeah but that's one of the points, anyone didn't really want to.

I mean an other solution could be, each member gets their thread. "marton's The Hill on Trump", "bossy babies pictures on what she cooks in Austria" (), "Lib on KFC" who cares if he doesn't eat that stuff anymore, after all Trump is out too . And then there is the infamous club which could share the "we hate the mods" thread".

True

Myself if I want more variety and a thread is boring then I either try to pep it up or unsubscribe and subscribe to others, just sitting there and hoping for a change is not my style.
For information, unsubscribing is quite simple, people just have to open the Control Panel and then navigate to "List subscriptions" in the bottom left.

I am open to financial offers

Trump has got you covered. Just now on CNN he said that he will offer you big money for a sex change operation. He said that he is looking forward to eventually grabbing you by your new meow

I think only one ban so far and nobody has even deleted their account because of this thread. I would say that it isn't even in the top 10.

When Nil's car got sold for a second time, with a price more than 100% higher with 20,000 km added, unfortunately old for sale threads have been deleted.

I have no intention of banning you, I like free speech. No intention of muzzling anybody just because they have a different view to myself. It's called tolerance

It would also be bad form for me to actively moderate a thread I am participating in.
An excellent approach FMF.

You ain't got a clue, mate! Actually there is supposed to be some cheese on that too, preferably jonge kaas (not Gouda, the one you find in every Dutch fridge. And not oude, too strong in this combination).
Never lived in the Netherlands?

If I had any bread in the house, I'd make me one now. Darn you guys for setting my mind on it.
No, Curley - never lived in the Netherlands but was infatuated by XXX, a wonderful Dutch girl who liked to make silly jokes about Belgians. Naturally, I insisted she had a priceless sense of humour but all my pathetic attempts to curry favour were sadly in vain
Oh well, at least she didn’t insist that the local cheese was a deal breaker
