Ship2shore....the level of tolerance here at CruiseMates, is far superior, to many other sites,and at some, you can get banned very quickly, for what most consider insignificant reasons.
We take our job seriously, even if you don't. Removal of posts considered against TOS, are most times removed before many people even get to see it, and, only hear about it after the fact, with a different spin on the facts.
We clean up, remove,and move threads to make it easier for all readers to maneuver the site more easily,and as Kuki said, the banned Crusiemates count is very low.
When anyone crosses the line, the rules have been broken, and, there are consequences. I think we've done a good job.
Trip, with her book & tea!
