I even missed TC and his almost daily insights of how miserable and poorly run the EU is compared to life in Britain.

Re: What happened?

I believe that the forum software was in a shambles and it needed to be fixed. Toytown and some of the other „Local“ forums were going off the rails for the last week or two.

My theory was that the CIA took the site down because the Chinese government is monitoring us and could gain valuable insights about Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, but your theory makes sense too.

Why is Pelosi‘s visit annoying the Chinese this time?

You mean the guy that started this thread? It's a good job upstarts like him were removed for more wholesome content

At least no other mods shamelessly jumped on his coattails once he'd gone!

Yeah, a lot of people react very badly to heat....

I noticed only shortly before it ran again so I didn't have the time to worry about EF...lol

(and I think it had happened before, no?)

You're joking, but there were at least two people on EF (they're not here anymore) who had troubles at work because they spent too much time on this site during their working hours....it is a weird social experiment, like all social media sites in fact.

It must be very difficult to return to being an ordinary member, without titles, without (much) power. ('cause you know, apparently they do count on internet...)
