You may very well be. I've been on several cruise message boards, they seem pretty similar in layout but this one gives you quick responses from people in the business, not someone who is board and is just looking for something to do. Sounds strange I know but... "if you could see what I see"(haha). You'll have to trust me on this one because I don't want to give out other web sites (especially if you will be dissapointed. Guaranteed !
P.S does the staff monitor these boards for nonsense and such? If you do, FANTASTIC ! If not, you might want to. It adds a bit of class(my opinion, of course). I haven't come across any nonsense. Thank goodness. Although one might say that what I am writing right now is nonsense. I will stop now.
Actually when you get used to them, they are much better, give yourself some time and they will be second nature to you. Its easier to hit the list topics only, and the once in hit the flat display, see if that helps?? If you need additional help just go to <how to use these message boards>, good luck.
