No, Urs Max. Many of your posts are mysoginist in nature and for many posters on this board, it has become clear that you have a problem with females in general. You imply negatively we are sexist or feminists or what not when we speak our minds.

We all have our hang ups, and that one just happens to be yours.
Again, you fail to grasp the difference between anti-feminism and mysoginy. Apparently that's too much of an intellectual challenge for you.

And yes, you are indeed sexist. I say that not because you (dare to) speak but because of what you say, and for your simultaneous disdain for men's issues. Claiming that I react to that because you present as female is just an additonal part of your sexism.

Re: Deleting My Account

olygirl I really dont understand why would you say "maybe you say that because I'm a woman"... I mean, maybe he thinks you're not a woman or doesnt care if you are? And did you see how men here also stab each other or fight or disagree? (women too)

Remember how you showed me hate just because you supposed this or that? and me I fought till the end with your prejudice and I wanted you to understand 'the core of the argument' whether it's comig from a woman/man..I for ex. dont even know if URs max is a girl/boy and to me what matters is the actual substance and meaning of their comments,arguments,convinctions.

I stated my reasons. By the way, I don’t consider you sexist at all. You’re relatively new to the forum so you may not be aware of Urs’ history and of how many female posters put him on ignore because of his passive aggressiveness towards women.

Here posts the EF colleague who today has already posted ten times in the coronavirus thread and the day is not yet over; most of those posts generated zero discussion.
So much for "a good discussion is one where we can get a lot of to and fro and development of ideas"

But nevertheless, I do thank you for your 45 posts in the Trump post-presidency thread,
......
Looks like we got the choice between marton quoting "The Hill" on a Trump thread or him counting other people's posts per thread and publish it randomly in any thread.

What I do is the exact opposite of passive. Obviously you don't even know what you're saying.

If only that was a surprise.

No, the post is there. It was in the petition to re-open the thread - thread.
And just to put it into perspective about the thread not being a one man show, out of 522 posts, marton had 135 posts, the next person was amogles with 45 posts and then Urs Max with 26 posts. . . do you get it now?
Perspective?
Thanks for your statistics.

The thread ran for 134 days so I posted once per day and this is somehow excessive?

Our esteemed colleague claimed I made a tsunami of posts, this the one who posted 10 times in one thread today

Well, apparently there is a rule that we didn't know about where a post needs to be closed by a mod if roughly 25% of the posts in it are made by one person. Therefore, the roughly 75% of the other posts and people who had commented in that thread are irrelevant. :/

Re: Deleting My Account

Pancakes, I was just reading those pages and it's so interesting how people just want to see or hear what suits them and not how things are .

So when amogles in a way replied to you, he was saying "dont be a jerk" and his comment was in form of the conditional and explaining how it should be done (in general) but ... this almost derailed again in the "oh I'm now insulted" it's unbelievable how this forum is like a 'Fountain of Youth' people love to behave like teens, not really listening the other and making quick conclusions

From what I could see£/read, lost_inbroad showed Marton how there were three ongoing threads on Trump (The Januray 6th, Trump organisation fined, Trump post-presidency thread) where Marton had his show and only one should be (sort of) enough.

Rufus from what I read was not banned because of her opinon on something or insults but she re-edited her post in a manner that oltered what was said on the first place. (and that's not a fair play)

I never told amogles that I was insulted. My reply to her was "I'm not being a jerk" and then explained something. It was calm. She (he?) and I were fine after that, and there were no misunderstandings. So why are you trying to inflate it to be something more than it was?

Stop being a "shit-stirrer" please.

Usually, people who reply to posts quote the original so we are informed about what they are talking about.
I have no idea which of RufusB's many posts is the one that was claimed to be altered, do you?
There is no EF rule against people editing posts or most of us would be long gone and also there is no EF rule about fair play as is obvious from a short perusal of our posts.

We do have a serial flouncer who is well known for re-writing posts after someone had responded, I find it very childish TBH.

oh oh mon Dieu..if amogles is a girl too then this is really a girly kindergarden I wonder if there's some normal ratio here 55% xx 42% xy (the rest, undecided)

Oh, is that what "flouncer" means? I saw it mentioned here a few times and wondered what it meant, actually. I guess I had just never really heard the term before, outside of this forum.

I edit posts sometimes when I notice a typo or if I re-read it after I hit "submit reply" and want it to come across differently. I try sometimes to read my posts as others might, to try to avoid misunderstandings. A lack of tone / written text can so easily cause misunderstandings, I think -- especially when people read them in their own tone of voice rather than the tone it was intended or written with.

Re: Deleting My Account

Pancakes, Marton, from what I read couple of pages before , Rufus altered her post while she was in some exchange with lost_inbroad. It was not a typo, or 'ill add a link or smthg' ..are you all just scrolling most of the time and making your opinion while you quickly browse or what?

Are you the present and qualified authority on how many people have Urs Max on his ignore list and how relevant would that information be to possible newcomers? I wonder.

A 'flouncer' is someone who says they are leaving & LOUDLY announces they are never coming back. Returning a few weeks later to repeat the threat. Eventually they will self delete & return under a new name or even the same name & threaten to leave, rince & repeat.

Lib, quite a few women in the past have posted me through pm or reputation remarks saying they’ve blocked Urs Max due to his attitude towards women so yes, my statement is based on factual evidence.

I'm not entirely sure how relevant it is, but I've had Urs Max on my ignore list for the past year or so, because it became very obvious that he was constantly targeting me here and was repeatedly being irrationally aggressive toward me. He was also constantly misinterpreting me and then dragging me into a long, drawn-out arguments because of it, which was just extremely frustrating and annoying. So it just made this place much easier to deal with once I put him on my ignore list. (Anyways, I'm not trying to turn this into an opportunity to bash Urs Max or whatever. It's just that the subject came up and that's been my experience).

I haven't expressed much of an opinion at all here about RufusB being banned. But I do remember asking WHY she was (temporarily) banned and no one answered me. What I had seen was that LiB accused her of not being objective enough (or something) and then the next thing I knew, she was banned. I think most of my posts in this thread have been in reference to the Trump thread that had been closed.

Pancakes , you said some nice things about me previously and I appreciate that.

I know we have not always seen eye to eye but I reckon we have established some sort of peace. And I really and deeply appreciate that .

If I could have things my way , the EF would not be a place where we all agree . Sometimes a good and hard discussion can be beneficial and help us see perspectives and points of view that we otherwise don’t get to see , or just to test the viability of our own arguments or beliefs in the face of criticism . I have certainly learnt quite a lot here and in some points even changed my opinions because people convinced me or showed me aspects and arguments that changed the game for me . But these discussions, however fundamental , should take place in a an atmosphere of mutual respect and goodwill . The posters on EF who I respect the most are not necessarily those who I agree with but those who manage to retain that respect despite disagreeing .

Now I’m sure you agree with me on this , because I’m sure that you too are arguing in good faith . I thus ask you to re think your views on UrsMax and others , not to agree with them . I don’t always agree with him either . But to see that he too is arguing in good faith .
