I am sorry but I am temporarily offline except through this AOL address due to problems with my server bellsouth.net. It seems that bellsouth will cancel your account without notification or any proof of any misconduct if anyone makes a complaint. Someone, (I have an idea who it might have been), made a complaint to my ISP that I was advertising and violating the charter of the newsgroup rec.travel.cruises. This is not true. I did make an announcement because of repeated requests for information that we would have a live chat with JB from Carnival on Oct 8th in rescheduling his previously announced chat. This in no way violates the charter of that newsgroup and live chats are announced there for many websites including mytravelco and CruiseCritic and Cruiseaddicts. For some reason, someone took extreme offense to the mention of Cruisemates there and made a unsigned, or at least they will not tell me who, complaint to my ISP that I was in violation of the newsgroup charter. Without telling me or giving me a chance to defend myself or even find out why, bellsouth.net terminated my account. I am appealing it and trying to find out just what exactly is going on but until I can get this straight e-mail to me on the internet is not possible. I am however able to access e-mail through this firstname.lastname@example.org
account if anyone needs to get in touch with me.
Somehow it seems very wrong that one can be subjected to this type of treatment and punishment without ever being told it is being done, much less why. Rest assured this is not over with and I will be back on the internet shortly. Trust me when I say that the people that have caused this unjust action, and possibly those that have taken this action, will not be happy when this is over.
