Hey you all out there.. I've been reading alot of stuff that dosen't belong on this topic... Its the island we are supposed to talk about and when I read some of the stuff that is being said here.. It would turn me off if I was a first time visitor.. I know Marty did not intend it to be like that.. You can make you comments on the General Chat area, where anything goes.. Please use that.. Sorry, but I have the island in mind... Thanks, Rick

I agree to some extent. I think these posts have just been bringing potential friends closer. We met some good friends on this board and got to meet them for real in AC. I guess some of the subject matter would scare people, or maybe just intrigue them to find out more. At least some of the posts showed a sense of humor, instead of bickering. I guess it's also true that people should use the general chat if they have something uninformative to say, but actually everything I've read has informed me one way or another.

Nothin in San Pedro is normal, so why should its board be? My pet theory is paradise draws only the maladjusted. So it looks pretty much normal, but if everyone was wearing straight jackets, as they should, then ya would think these people are crazy, as indeed they are...

Gone fishing!!

I haven't read too much that is bad here. Mostly found something of interest or informative. I visited the chat area. Was too risque for me. Not vcery interesting to anyone who wasn't in the know.

I got chewed up when I reminded those, that just want to chat, there was a "general chat" area for idle nonsense. Hope this one passes through without ill ease.
There are things that certainly have made me leery of the island. Vacationers is one. Perhaps I am just getting wiser in my grown-up years. I agree with Bill.

NYGal- What about vacationers has made you "leery?" I've found everyone I've met on AC and on this board to be thoroughly delightful, warm, and with a great (though at times a little off-beat, admittedly) sense of humor- vacationers, Belizeans, and ex-pats alike. I'm not trying to come down on your opinion, I'm just really curious. I guess I agree somewhat about using the general chat area, but then again, IMHO - there are so many other more important topics worthy of worrying about. Even if there is at times some friendly banter or chit-chat, everyone does a great job answering questions and the board seems to be fulfilling its purpose one way or another. If it brings friends closer together, we're just all that much more blessed. There are also those who post questions in the general chat area, and while sometimes people comment on that, the questions still get answered. IJ

I really have to agree with you on this one. I have been visiting this board since February- long past my return from the island. I love everything this board has to offer! I think that almost all legitimate inquiries are addressed in a responsible and thoughtful matter and that questions are answered wonderfully by everyone here.

I have really enjoyed the current post which discusses the serious issues of the beaches of AC. I think this dialog is very educational. I also enjoy coming back to read the monstrous amount of nonsense we call "Shots?" This board provides a hilarious relief from my daily cubicle existence! It makes me laugh! I think everyone's contributions are welcome!

Rick, no offense buddy, but I noticed a few weeks back that you used this forum to wish your wife a Happy Birthday. Did that post provide any insight into information about AC? Nah, not really. Did anyone get riled up enough about it to tell you to knock it off? Nope. Some things just aren't worth getting upset about. Maybe you are just excited about leaving for AC in a few days, eh?

If you snipit writers, bone scanning goofballs, and anyone else with a keen sense of wit find your humor unwelcome here and decide to take up residence on another board-- please let me know so I can come by for a visit [Linked Image]
