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.

I think its hard to read FairDinkums posts and not conclude that they have some genuine psychological issues. As such, it's better to just use the ignore function than get dragged into that rabbit hole of childlike nonsense.

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!
Thereís certainly plenty of drivel coming from all quarters, but thatís nothing to do with political allegiances.
Iím still yet to see right wing nutty posts. Some people are conservative in thinking, and thereís nothing wrong with that.
Those people arenít constantly crying in their cornflakes about the liberal and center leftists on here.

Looks like some people are missing the previous cancel culture, instead of hitting the ignore button.

Indeed, I've heard it's safe to come back now. Like Moses returning to the promised land, like Mandela being released from prison, like Napoleon arriving from exile on Elba... shall I go on?
Are we getting the band back together?

I apologize for not being clearer: There was an unspoken pact among US Presidents to not diss each other while in office.
Nonsense. That's as true as your (indirectly) defending a liar, cheater, adulterer, and wannabe fraud is revealing and damning for you.

Two examples, there are more (Carter for instance attacked GWB while in office, "worst POTUS ever").
