    If that's your mission, do it somewhere else.

    Good M/A/E FL* Loungers, wishing all a beautiful, happy and healthy Tuesday/Wednesday.

    The lounge feels pretty inactive, but hopefully this might changes for the better in the future in terms of meaningful activity, as there was a time when more MP/IF members had been posters here, while I don't want to dwell in the past too much for too long, however it stands to reason why we're seeing hardly any activity anymore in the formally pretty busy and rather welcoming FL* Lounge.

    That's food for thought IMHO. :)

    Cheers & Safe Travels. :)

    UB, contrary to your perception, the lounge has been plenty active.

    all you need to do is look at the post numbers.

    many, many more than other threads you may have chosen to hang out in.

    you headed off to other pastures long ago.

    i've been told you made the CL your home.

    whilst i'm not familiar with that thread, I say go back to where you feel comfortable, the CL. that was a choice you made, and whilst i don't go there, i've been told you've made disparaging comments there, about others that have posted in this thread for the past six years.

    so based on those reports, i really don't see why you'd feel very welcome back here, nor do i comprehend your commentary on what you think is appropriate for the FL.

    if you want, post that type of stuff over in the CL, where you placed your bet a few years back.

    is that still going strong? like the FL lounge with c. 500K posts, and don't forget the adjunct Trump For President FL Lounge, c 10K posts:D

    all the best,

    Cheers, happy day, happy, and safe travels, and all good:)

    You're wrongly informed, sadly so. I've for years posted in several lounges and threads a wide variety of comments, but so far I haven't written about other members in negative ways, the whole opposite in fact, I have posted on many topics and when the FL lounge had 25 active posters I remember active discussions from greetings, how people are doing, travel related subjects to the news of the day, it was diverse, but then bullying started to creep in and one by one started lo leave and the FL lounge group dispersed all over MP/IF, but I always thought it's wonderful that I'm/and a few other former FL lounge posters could be found in the CL lounge, which oddly didn't see any bullying so far and the content/likes received are diverse unlike in the FL lounge which seems to have morphed into something very narrow, especially over the past 1 to 2 years.

    A few posters here in the FL are also active in the CL and that's good IMHO, plus a few former FL loungers are active in the CL too, these two lounges aren't competitors you make out them to be, since I post in them for around 6 years I wouldn't know why this would be the case and from where such ill-informed views about lounge competition is coming from, it's more about quality than outright quantity in numbers. In regards of writing negative about others, as mentioned above, I don't know from where this is coming from, plus in the FL lounge I post a lot or have posted a lot here and it seems that others incl. yourself seem to bully and disparage FL/CL posters incl. myself with comments incl. being not welcome here, that's a strange comment to make in a lounge where people should be made rather very welcome and receive likes.

    Cheers & Safe Travels. :)

    UB, i'm not suggesting it is competitive at all, i wouldn't put the CL thread in the same category.

    i have no issue at all with anyone that posts in that thread, whether they be former FL participants or not.

    what i am saying is you chose that as your home base a few years back.

    no bullying here UB, just calling it as it is.

    Sadly, maybe not for you, but it's called bullying, and it's going on for too long, that's why many posters have left the FL or MP/IF entirely. That's the truth.

    Cheers & Safe Travels. :)

    my understanding is that total traffic, across the board, has diminished substantially, from the busy early years. that's understandable.

    the lounge, being a microcosm, has reduced too. nothing unusual with that. in line with the market.

    The only outright bullying I've seen in the FL has come from one guy in Ontario towards GoodBoy and then, more recently, another guy from Ontario towards you, About Again. Oh, yeah, and then there was the poster from the CL who used your wife's picture as his avatar. :rolleyes: Those examples are definitely bullying.

    Apparently, though, a few posters who previously posted in the FL (including UB) take expressing one's opinion as "bullying". My advice to them is... if you don't like the heat then get out of the kitchen. We have been posting here for the last three+ years without problem (other than the latest bully who left us earlier this Spring) and there have been no accusations or complaints towards others except when UB decides to post here after months/years of absence. Just stating the truth.

    That may be your opinion, UB, but the reality is there are lots of reasons that people left the FLounge. I am still friends with many of them and life in general has prevented most from carrying on with the rapid pace of posting that occurred here in the first year or two. They have jobs and families that are rightfully demanding of their time.

    Due to those demands of life, most could simply not keep devoting mega hours to MP/IF like you and some others have done consistently over the years. Put me in that busy group of posters, as well. My leisure time is limited and I resent having to spend some of that precious time today defending those of us who have posted here consistently over the last 6+ years. We didn't leave to post elsewhere and we didn't/still don't accuse anyone of anything when posting in other threads. We stayed here after others deserted the FL (due to some undeserved turbulence) because we have developed very strong and loyal friendships.

    actually C, in addition there was a poster, or posters using my real name, and also "the real" and then my name, so yes there was a bit of bullying....
