I believe Trump said something quite similar when he was President.
I wonder where he got his information from before he was president.

I apologize for not being clearer: There was an unspoken pact among US Presidents to not diss each other while in office. Trump broke that pact to create daily scandals to feed his ego. Until now, most mods on EF have treated former mods with respect and humility. You’ve changed all that by triggering a new epoch by dishing out mod info and openly reveling in your mod status. It appears LiB has jumped on your bandwagon to brag about his status and abuse his mod powers.

I understand Belgiummom’s disgust in what’s happening but I still don’t want to leave the forum yet. Nevertheless, someday this will all probably wear me down to the point that I’ll have to admit the new editor is in name only and the Local really doesn’t care about EF or its pronounced conservative modding.

That would depend it the permaban was justified or not.
Editor Bob reversed his permaban of V, so it's been sanctioned at the highest level in the past.

Members who never insulted anybody (unlike you) and have been banned for having different views by mods who are no longer modding should come back because they bring value to the forum.

Long live liberated EF!

I did not realise I had been elected as President of English forum, I think that position belongs to the Administrator you recently welcomed.

Perhaps he saw the exchanges with Editor Bob & agreed the mod team was doing an admirable job.

It's very simple guys (these can be considered basics), just look at their user profile and if they are permabanned it will say banned as their user title along with the reasons. https://www.englishforum.ch/members/...-codpeace.html

Looks like the ban must have died with the moderator who self deleted.

I have always wondered how you managed to avoid a permaban under the old regime, because I would definitely want you back if you had been!

Why are you so concerned?
The previous mods were serial banners, and all things being equal you should have been on the list also.
As it is, everyone seems happy with the status quo today.

Yes, I am sure 'everyone' is ecstatic with EF's resurgence of nutty right-wing drivel and previously banned members. Some of the mods must agree to considering they continually support and thank said previously banned and right-wing nutty members. One big happy and dysfunctional online family!

EF is much more balanced than before, it's a good thing.

I would say it is a big happy family, functioning better than ever before, long may that continue.

People fear change, so it's a perfectly reasonable response to a change in the status quo.

Re: Deleting My Account

I dont remember the previous mods,their names or their bestties here...

As I just popped in 3-4times, what I can say is how it was so sectarian, cult-like atmosphere and the topics were all just one-way road.. if you challenge someone's opinion with 2-3questions "oh trolling", "rudeness" "anti-social" tags coming in and you either leave or they kick you out

I suppose this just reflects life itself but only specific aspects .. You've got those few mods and the group and just like in a church everyone should sing more or less the same song, talk about things in a same direction (trumtrumptrump evil evil, masks masks masks...) and anyone who's a bit out of the lane is seen as an intruder, under demonic possession, not one of us, therefore - get him/her out of here.

This is why now so many of those singing members of that cult are bitter and they want their peaceful nice lovely time back again.

The question is why is that? what makes people want to be in a somewhat closed circle...unique thoughts, censorship, no jokes, reporting the r-word the s-word (many other words as well) which again it's that sectarian way of thinking.
