A few years ago I visited a French friend who was fluent in English, and he was moaning about French administration, saying how difficult it was to find out reliable information. He asked how the English living in France managed. I showed him the survive France website, and said one could obtain a lot of information from members, be it on motoring, health, tax etc., etc. He was impressed.
Several months later, I met up with him again and he informed me that he often looks at the SF site, and whilst he still thinks the site is extremely useful for finding out information, he had much more negative comments about the general posts on the site. He said that members came across as sad and angry people, and that the UK must be well rid of them. He added that France have their own habitual moaners who are always whining about one thing or another.
