Missing, and presumed disgusted . . . #190127

Iíve been on the board for not quite 2 years. I remember getting slammed by a couple of people on some of my very first posts - I also remember getting a great deal of very helpful information. Thick skinned, I kept posting. Still, it took me quite some time and my first trip to San Pedro to feel ďinĒ on this board. Meeting a number of other boarders in person helped.

I know things change and there are ups and downs but the board does seem to have taken on a different tone lately. There have always been people who were a little rude, or insulting or slightly over the top, but I donít recall all the direct attacks and name calling that weíve seen as of late. And it seems that conduct has run off a lot of the people Iíd grown accustomed to seeing. I miss crackerlarry, jesse, fuzzynavel. Whatever happed to that richguy? I donít hear nearly enough from Simon anymore, or the Pedros or Chloe or mailbu. Whereís madmatt and what happened to hon and that chipwagon chick? I bet ChooChoo is still lurking somewhere. Even Jeb? And man do I miss Reef Ransom. And lots of others I havenít named. I donít miss all these posters because I agreed with them all the time - hardly! Itís just that they provided some variety to what weíre seeing too much of in recent weeks.

I suppose taking a break is one way of dealing with so much negativity. Iíd rather stay and out post Ďem. Come on guys and gals - letís take our board back . . .

That's MY rant for the day -

Is there such a thing as a thin skinned lawyer?
On the other hand, I agree with you (under an assumed name of course)

What's your assumed name? Are you chipwagon chick?

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Howdy Law.... I've been very busy here approving home loans. But yes, when I do spy a bit I don't post because of the reasons you list. I try to ignore it...and mainly I'm not posting because I am busy busy busy. Keep on smiling!!! :-)

Hey Mal!

Couldn't agree with you more lawcucui. This board has been infected as of late by some very mean spirited personalities. I was needlessly "slammed" awhile back by someone on this board and have refrained from posting since that attack. I believe the recent negativity has kept many of the regular boarders from joining in on AC discussions. I only wish my skin was as thick as yours. I realize it's only internet bulls***, however, it still smarts when an insult is aimed directly at you with the intention to hurt or degrade.
Lawcucui - Thank you for your long overdue observation.

Posts/E-mails can be so easily misread and I believe that is the reason for so many people "slamming" others. On the other hand, there are some real AH's on the board who have joined recently. Speaking of, haven't seen them around lately! :p

Law...Thank you for your voice. I have been lurking around the board both as a member and a non-member for some time now. I found the board to be a wealth of knowledge esp. in planning our first trip back in April. I have been following the board more closely as of late because we will coming down for our 2nd trip on February 20th and your observations are right on the mark. I have refrained from posting for fear of the responses on many an occasion. Again, I thank you for stating what I am sure many of us are thinking.
