Because of Tender's constant austroposting (using every pretext to inject irrelevant Austria-related post to other threads), I'm forced to retort to extreme measure.

From this moment, Tender is barred from posting on this board for one week. If he does posts, his post will be deleted at sight.

Yes, I'm fully aware I'm reviving one of Inks' concepts. You're free to make appropriate remarks Smiley

But notice how Austrian electricity prices are the same as the EU average.

Clearly Austria is a representative microcosm of Europe as a whole. Just as we in the U.S. once asked "will it play in Peoria" those in the EU must now ask "will it play in Salzburg".

I'm sick and tired of irrelevant posts about Austrian Chancellor Malcolm Turnbull.

If "austroposting" is a real issue why don't you focus on posts with an unnecessary reference to Austria only? Deleting each and every of Tender's post, regardless of content, strikes me as way over the top.

IIRC, that was a Sam Spade concept rather than an Inksian one.  Spade did that with someone (I forget who now) when he was basically on his way out the door from his moderatorship, and didn't give a crap anymore.

Either way, not a good idea, IMHO.  Was this a consensus decision with other mods, or did you just decide to do this on your own initiative?  The latter seems out of bounds, IMHO.

What is your opinion of this thread?

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

Just delete the unnecessary Austriaposts, not everything he posts -- that's excessive.

Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time.

Dutch PM Rutte once banned (bruggetje lol) his greatest rival Rita Verdonk from his party. Initially people thought it was dumb and the VVD was going down (Verdonk formed her own party) and the VVD dropped to their lowest scores since the 60s. But 3 years later Rutte's VVD became the largest party (for the first time ever) while Verdonk's party won 0.5% or so.

Did you guys know Dutch political parties are still trying to form a government after the elections in March? The British freak out when they don't have a government within 5 days, we have to wait 6 months on one.

The Netherlands doesn't ban surprise chocolate eggs.

70% of Somalian refugees in the Netherlands live on welfare, meanwhile the Dutch police was accused of lying about the crimes rates of refugees.

But what's REALLY important here is that the Dutch government formation has now lasted 149 days longer than the Austrian government formation did after the 2008 election!!!
