Default Who are these people?

Who are all these new names and people that I have to deal with on Gripes???

Just when I thought I had got the old Gripes crowd under my thumb and I was in control I have all these new strangers to listen too as well, 8)

Lets see how long they last...............

So, you were saying, and your point is?

Welcome, lets talk......

So, David, are you the Moderator of the Gripes Forum?

I like all the newbies around; makes life interesting.

David, don't you need a challenge? Now you have more personalities to try to sort out.

David you think I was under your thumb??? I have not seen many topics worthy of griping about and you have not provided me with the usual fodder to debate your sometimes inane thinking. I always welcome the opportunity to find out how your brain works or what 60's mild altering substance has melted it into the monster you have become. Frankly I think you have been off your game lately. you seem much more serene. I preferred you with a little anger. so get back on the horse and give me something to try and make your head spin. (disclaimer again: I am not bashing DBG just stirring him up a bit )

Marc, take it for what it is a VERY tongue in cheek "view"

Rescuedad, I'm now a chilled person, having converted to being a "child of the norm", sorry I'm now boring 8)

And as for characters and personalities, who the hell are you ready2gonow to say something like that to us as a person

Marc, again 8)

"So, David, are you the Moderator of the Gripes Forum"?

NOT in my wildest nightmare, who the heck would want to deal with all the mentalists on here and their opinions

ps Welcome new mentalists, your okay, Marc will show you the way if you are not sure how to post or react

In my best Southern drawl I say "Why, David, whatever do you mean?"


David, I just sit here on the fence, and sway one way and then the other. Occasionally I will lob a grenade over the fence.

I have a feeling that in general, you find people and their opinions interesting. Kind of like I do. You're just a little more vocal about it than I am.

Hey, I've been 'ghosting' the boards here for two years or so. I figure it was time to make an appearance, so here I am!

That is or was my intention "wake up the old farts" and at the same time throw a dare to the potential new DBG "fodder", sorry that was a typo, I really meant new DBG "friends" 8) . Folks join in and take this old self indulgent fart to task.... 8)....

You see that approach from CM and how this board is directed, is the difference for me and I dont care which site you used to post on or how it was for you on there. Here, you can be comfortable in giving opinion. So keep talking and dont feel the need to hide your opinion....its welcome.

ps
Had a look at the other site, and considering that opinion is I might be a bit mental,and up for anything,,,not in this case.... Not so mental that I would want to take part in the WWE version of a cruise board , how bad is that place!

Would not even grace them as a troll 8)

good analogy; WWE version of a cruise board; the place to go for a smackdown!

So, DBG, you went and had a look-see? Was it as bad as I said? Or even worse?

I don't even go there to visit anymore. IMHO, it is the horror of forum boards. Totally out of control.

people, so lets appreciate what CM offers and its values.....

God, that sounded like a corporate line and major brown nosing to THOSE that have BARRED me at least TWICE.......

Did I say I used to be an Admiral on here .....

Look its simple, come here and talk, chat, rant, rave, but dont kick the crap out of each other "too hard". But question opinion, post, view and then debate it.

Then it works...

Notice: This was a non management broadcast from the Gripes board hermit...

Again welcome all. Do us a favour and now type all those GRIPES from cruising that you feel you never had the chance to post before... 8)

You know it makes debate......

Ehhhh , twice I got banned for opinion deemed "different" or against CM policy. Maybe seen as too "personal" back in the days deemed bad, but some would see as good old days .

Back when this "Gripes" board was really "in your face" and debating opinion and with some great people now gone, that I miss for the "discussion".

So get snuffed here, and that means your ID/tag is gone, so you start again under a different name if they will have you back 8)...butl some do actually get back with their original identitiy intact. Not bitter..

So you scrub decks etc etc, and build your new tag up at the same time.

When people say that I have changed, yeah I have, as I am on my last warning from Paul. Kuki and co, and if I blow-out DBG, then I am gone.

But does that stop me giving or reacting to opinion,,,well maybe....but working with one hand behind my back. 8)

David,

You are a very special person. The person who banned you so much is gone. You have done nothing wrong this time. I just wish you would get out more on the other boards. Under all that rust, you do have a lot of knowledge that others could use.

Luanne, you too are special and an original member of the CM "brat pack".

Yeah the mental policeman has gone, but he did not get me kicked off last time,,,but thats history, forget it.

I explained a question and vented at the same time. 8)

Sorry Lu, dont go out there much. Its just too happy clappy, have a laugh, and two post later no-one even thinks about reading what you said.

Have fun those that do it, but far too shallow for me. Paul B, what do you think or is it just me?
