Canadian Finance Minister taking illegal kickbacks. Actually, I'm very surprised that this poster's thread wasn't deleted particularly considering some that have been.

So why wasn't it deleted?

I try to stop myself from anything political, we've all seen where they end up going....Just not worth it IMHO. Pretty much anything else goes....

Henry, you had the same idea I had when I first read the post, !

Talking Don't Respond ...

Well, in many years of kicking around bulletin boards, you would think I would have learned a simple lesson: Never respond to any post that has a

SCREAMING SUBJECT LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But ... do you think I can restrain myself ...

I would never respond to a thread that is in "poor taste" or uses "poor judgement" on the part of the sender. Cruisemates is a group of people who enjoy cruising and discussing our cruises and the ports the ships visit. There is so much good to talk about cruising, our families, and all that is "good" in this world. It would be wonderful if we all can talk about "positive" things that happen on our cruises and in our lives!

Whenever I see a thread about smoking or kids in the pool I don't want to open them. The bad part is that I have to. No matter what they turn into some sort of an online shouting match and name calling.

I am always amazed that people just "have" to respond even though they don't answer the original question or offer any pertinent information.

Take care,
Mike

Henry,

I'm sore but doing OK. Just killing time now. Slept all day so I probably won't sleep tonight.

Take care,
Mike

Red face Threads I Wouldn't Respond To

I wouldn't respond to threads that ask "which cruise line is better". The answers are so subjective, and the responders frequently end up shouting at one another.

Another one is about sneaking booze onboard. It's been asked and answered a thousand times.

There it is you find the one thread I will no longer post on. I will reply to most any thread and talk about anything. I have in the past replied to sneaking booze onboard a cruise ship thread. But now I'm done with this topic. I have no idea of the age of the poster. One of these post was started by a teenagers. I don't want to be the one who shows teenagers how to sneak booze on board for underage drinking.

Pootersdad, I agree with about not discussing which cruise line is better. We are a group of people of different tastes and different pocketbooks. No matter what cruise line one goes on they will have a great time if they keep a positive attitude!

I do believe that people can get an idea of what cruise line is better for them with the "X Cruise Line vs. Y Cruise Line" or "Which Cruise Line is Better?" threads. That is "if" the responders do a fair comparison between the lines and they have actually cruised on both of them.

The problem is that they will post this on a specific cruise line board and, of course, they will get the cheerleaders who become agitated by any negative comment about "their" cruise line. It always mystifies me that people take a negative comment about their cruise line as bad as a negative comment about their child. I think some people would have less of a problem if you called their spouse ugly than if you said their cruise line was boring.

Take care,
Mike

Sports, and Politics. Don't give a damn about sports, and you're never going to change any ones mind about politics?

I've grown tired of threads which ask about sneaking booze aboard or other ways to violate cruise line rules. If people will break little rules they'll break big ones too, and I don't want to do anything to help them.

This was about why would you respond. And, your answer is so you could have more fun poking fun at topics. Come on! When a subject is wrong - involves a blog ... you want to have fun.

That is entirely wrong! I've seen enough (before they were deleted) that I didn't think should be deleted.

I hope it wasn't because it was about a Canadian subject just because you (Kuki) are Canadian.

And, why is it important for you to have "fun poking fun at topics". Isn't it more important to keep CM up to their higher standards than "poking fun"?

I can't say that there's any post that I'd NEVER post an answer to. I'm not interested in the politcal post's, but I might put my 2 cent's in (then, again, probably not.).

I'm always interested in what people have to say, whether I agree or not !
