I agree FL-C thats why i've added some comments pointing that out -

"it smacks of double standards that Kathleen can give her views on the sorry mess here but yet she/CC don't afford those same right to CC members on CC."



Feel free to leave comments on that site.

There is no need to, Google will automatically track things like this for you. You just have to know how to do it.

One of the easiest that you can set up is on Google News at news.google.com (or your own country). Personalize the page, Add a custom section and give it the keywords you want. Or you can use Google Alerts at http://www.google.com/alerts

You have been banned for the following reason:
Continually posting in an effort to disrupt the normal flow of conversation; this time on the Holland America forum.

Date the ban will be lifted: Never




I've never got a warning - i've never posted on the HAL forum ??

I didn't think you posted such horrible things. You asked questions. Oh is that disruptive? Asking a question?
P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C

And what the heck are you doing on the HAL forum?

I have a google news alert on RCCL Viral Marketing, and somehow, I guess a google blog alert, and they are NOT sending me what JJ is coming up with, and what I do get is days old, and I have already found it.

Now, that is too darned funny! Banned for posting on a forum where he never has been! You gotta love it. Ephraim, how do you block ip's? I know there is a way.

JJ is JC a Stephen or a Steve in cognito?

I was on the Princess thread, here, the other night and Parrot mom was very upset about something going on over there, evidently, on the M&M forum, I think. And I mentioned the HAL forum here the other night, and how posters there, aprx. year ago, were blasting the dark side -- nothing to do with the RCP, however, just CC posters being nasty. JJ, do they think you are me -- is that how HAL got in their message?

Don't feel down. You didn't do anything wrong.

The RC masses complained and CC happily agreed. Your ban is probably more because of your posting here than over there especially since you pointed out Mrs Tuckers obvious defending all over the net yet does not allow the discussion in her own home.

Think about it: your ban came within 24 to 48 hours of this thread.

It shows how helpless they are. Rather than being down just smile about it and celebrate that they have to go to such extremes.

Always remember: those who refuse to debate the issue have no argument.

jj,
Sorry to hear you got banned. It is a loss for the membership of Cruise Critic that you will no longer be on the boards over there.

I am just disgusted with the whole thing. Like you, I have been a member of CC for many years. It has no meaning to me now. Like I have said before, I feel sorry for the newbies over there, they have no clue as to how manipulated that Site is now.

Just shows you how afraid the Admins at CC are of the truth. Ban the innocent! Reward censorship!

Sorry jj.........I didn't mean to put an ill omen on you.

I'm under threat as well. Apparently if I post one more thing they don't like I'll have a life-time ban as well. How childish.

Oh well, I do post over there a tiny bit but nothing of any conseqence. I would like to be able to read there though - must be a glutton for punishment I guess.

You likely don't need to block an IP anyway. They are usually dynamic with your ISP. You just disconnect and reconnect and you usually get an new IP.
