News postings from "the Savage group"

What you need to know about Sweden, or not?

In one minute and three seconds "The Savage Group"
has just made eight posts about happenings in Sweden...

None of them favourable, but totally forgettable to this reader and I think most of those that read them...

Again I ask...Why???

Please explain the reason for this agenda, so as to at least begin a dialog between TheLocal's other posters and The Savage Group...

Seems to be a pretty pitiful individual. I don't really understand what would motivate someone to spend their time trawling the news for the worst things that happen and then reposting them under the guise of providing a 'balanced' viewpoint. Choose any country in the world and you could do a similar trawl and make it out to be a hellhole. But I'd assume that, like me, the articles that are continuously posted are no kind of representation of what living in Sweden is actually like.

Most of all, I can't understand why anyone with such disdain for the country would choose to live here.

On the one hand, I don't want to delete the postings because then we would be accused of trying to hide the news or stifle conversation.

On the other hand, the persistent heavy flow of crime reports to the "Swedish news" section is drowning out all other news-related discussions.

So as a trial solution I have split the forum section into two. We now have Swedish news and Crime reports. Hopefully it is self-evident which posts belong where.

Maybe Savage is trying to get the most number of posts on the Local which is currently held by Streja with 15,469 posts.
However treat Savages posts as you want, whether they be negative or positive is certainty going bring attention to the Local. This could then end up with Savage being banned.
One other thing is Hisingen has not been around lately to keep Savage in-check.
Come to think of it where is Hisingen.

Are you deluded? As a once regular viewer and poster, and I suspect like most others, I log onto here by selecting "Today's Active Topics". And these days see a continuous stream of nauseating and purely sensationalist posts by Savage.

Only when I first discovered this site did I ever go through the Topics.

You just confirm that letting Savage loose on here is Local policy, and you haven't a clue on how to restore it to its previous helpful status, with lots of helpful stuff plus sharp if occasional raucous topics.

I think crime reports could be misleading, maybe it should be Swedish crime reports.

Good point, Johno. The "Crime reports" section is now excluded from the Today's active topics list.

And Fred, I think it's pretty clear that the section name refers to Sweden only. Afterall, this is a Sweden site, and the section is placed within the "Swedish news" section. If non-Sweden crime reports are posted they'll be deleted. If it becomes a problem we can rename, but I think it'll be OK.

Thumb up @The Local. I ignored Savage long ago but the new threads were still showing up in the search. Now I can browse The Local with much less trouble.

Once again TheLocal has proven to be a fair and honest site...


Thank you for NOT banning The Savage Group...even though the majority of posters see nothing of value in their posts, they still have the right to speak, and I think that's what we are waiting for, their reply to my post...

All this moaning about Savage.

Well at least she makes the effort to post where as most long timers, moan and groan about everything and cannot be bothered with any other input

And what do you mean by that. I have at least tried to bring this site back to life by posting topics. I noticed that you have been a member since 2010 and posted 5 topics, what have you done or the so called regulars?????

My point was that you complain about people moaning and groaning while defending the most depressingly negative poster on here.
