I have to agree with thoth. He is free to post whatever his thoughts may be. In retrospect, I don't find his comments offensive. I actually laugh at them and the fact that they sure went over my head the first time I read them. I should have paid better attention in first grade when my teacher told me to read everything before reacting.
I am sorry if I got a little carried away with all this. I never meant any harm towards anyone, it is just that sometimes when on the internet we just do not know if it is emotions talking or just a game. For my part , anything offensive or personal should have been taken as simply a game. For the record, I am not a snob, nor am I "over anyone's head" ! What I am is a bad speller who must dig through my Thesaurus in order to post most anything.
One thing that I am very serious about is cruise ships and the people who I meet on board. I live for that next trip! HAL Statendam, Alaska, 14 September 03
I have trouble taking people who hide behind the anonymity of nicknames seriously. If I have nothing else to do, pulling the chains of those who take themselves and their opinions far too seriously can be fun.
The value of a message board seems to be a venue for people to ask legitimate questions about cruises and cruising and to have people with recent experience answer them.
Sometimes I think the people who generate hissy fits need a life. Before I am corrected, I know it can be spelled 'ey' or 'ie'. I chose the masculine.
After 29 cruises I have learned to take what comes. Enjoyed every sailing, some more than others. Sometimes it is good to hear what others have to say about their sailing. I, for one believe in FREE SPEECH and like reading the messages, even from the those who *****, *****, *****. JUST LIKE YOU GOT THIS POST STARTED WITH YOUR BTICH, ***** *****, Al
