Just got done reading the thread under Ask CM Staff about tattoos. I could only laugh at the fact that someone was able to turn this lighthearted question and answers into personal attacks.
I don't know if anyone has noticed, but lately I have been keeping to myself - I still check the board every day (multiple times) to keep up with everyone, but still a little leary about posting some of my thoughts. If it could even remotely turn ugly - I won't post. I find it humorous though - the things that people can make controversial. Can't wait to see if this take a turn.....
I didn't read the thread you're writing about, Jodi. But I've certainly noticed the inclination of certain posters to either initiate controversial threads or to turn innocent subjects into just the opposite by interjecting controversy where none existed or would be called for. Some people simply cannot refrain from such boorish behavior, and that's a shame on a friendly forum such as CruiseMates. Forgive them, Father...!
Glad to hear from you Jodi, I thought you were still partying from UConn's double win.
I realize that some people refrain from posting unless they have something to say, but that never stops me. <G>
It's good that you check in occasionally.
I know that ALL of us have a topic about which we cannot be lighthearted and ttend to take a tad too seriously. Unfortunately, there seem to be posters who are this way (boorish) on just about every subject.
I wouldn't worry about posting if I were you, Jodi. Have you noticed that if you quit responding to boorish behavior on a post it tends to die?
Nice to hear from you!
