I agree with the OP. Too much of the Gripes board are "gripes" about fellow cruisers rather than gripes about a cruise ship, a cruise line, a cruise port. or other cruising topics. There has also been an increase in "baiting" topics just designed to incense others. I don't sign up to the argument that just because it occurs on other boards, it should occur here.
