The most recent mean spirited trashing of people on the board is depressing and inappropriate.
Globalboy may not be your idea pf the perfect human, but why do we need to encourage this kind of stuff regardless.

Sigh - Globalboy has a point - wish some folks with class would show up.

depressing personal garbage.

dunno on this, marty. long time boarders are being dissed, and we have our way of protecting our own. we are what we are, and most of us are pretty fond of each other. in a way, i think GB asked for it.

he made it public, maybe he shoulda pm'd pedro, weather, or since it seemed he already contacted the advertisers/businessmen, kept it off the board completely.

otherwise, i do think it belonged on the chat thread, not here.

Marty look at the posting San Pedro daily-GB started it -lied to everyone and then cries to you when he gets found out-me thinks he should hide behind his mothers apron

Marty-a further point
we have a number of people,on this board,that hide behind a pseudonym and trash various businesses without ever revealing their identities and all the time they have a hidden agenda.
People who want to contribute regularly to this board should, imo and others, state exactly what their interests in or on Ambergris Caye are-it is pathetic when one "Richard Cranium" comes on the board,acts like a saint, and insults various businesses without recourse

Globalboy trashed himself; he started it all with these posts, which I don't think are very classy:

Maybe the newspaper and Pedro's should start running ads in the US papers that specialize in the gettos, so we attaract all the 'trash people' from the US , as well as Pedro's friends from whatever sewers they come out of....

In other posts he insulted the entire board, and insinuated that there are only a few people of reason on Ambergris Caye. Then he tried to destroy an AC business by getting to the advertisers...

He really did it himself, but that's just my opinion.

Re: manners - 11/16/06 05:00 PM

short, i guess we are of that same opinion. i think he asked for it. mom used to say it was not what you said, but how you said it. and he was far from respectful, polite, or eloquent.

marty, you know i admire all you do, and your views are important, but i know you kicked a good friend of mine off the board some time ago for what amounts to the same, i think. just an observation.

I'm slow posting this but I have to agree with Short and Sweet Jane. I understand what you are saying Marty, but at the same time, when GBoy kept expounding that we (the board members) were low-life sewer rats, trash people, and low life morons, well, he'd better be up for a little retaliation. He'd better not think for one minute that ANYONE on this board would let it go. Nope, not happening. Sorry, but when you put your foot in your mouth, don't expect anyone to help you get it out. Matter of fact, we'll help you push it in a little farther. Can you say rectum-otomy? eek ( I know that's not a word, but it brings to mind a very vivid picture!) JMHO
"I'm SRQ and I approve of this message!" laugh
disclaimer: No rats, low-life morons or trash people were abused in any way during this important public announcement.

GB was also trashing ghetto dwellers....now that is "ghetto" behaviour to be sure. What was that saying that teachers would tell us as kids?

Don't point a finger at someone cuz there's four more pointing back at you?

Right, wrong or otherwise, expect to get a dose of your own medicine when you start up something.
One should stop and think long and hard of what the repercussions will be of their actions. May not be to their liking.

I do agree Marty, at the same time his posts led the way.

If you cannot say something nice about someone why say anything al all?

Marty
the people on this board stood up to defend Pedro and eachother after Globalboy made the above mentioned slanderous comments.

People with class defend their families and friends.

If you think none of us have any class than perhaps you and Global Boy should have this board all to yourself.

Re: manners - 11/16/06 06:25 PM

adman, yes, as we said, we defend our own. but don't diss marty either, i will defend him too, as he is da man. i would not lump him in with gboy and the like.

that said, marty, the way you phrased your above words implies that you think some of us don't have class. i don't think that is like you. don't punish all the kids for the crimes of a few.

Lighten up people!!! Ignore the trash talkers and have some fun. I agree we don't need to take trash talking from rude people. Marty is probably just sick of reading all of the crap, he is soooo not in to that as we all know. That's why we all like him so much.

I've missed a few days and obviously I've missed alot. Gee, when you guys get into it, you really get into it big time. I stopped dropping into the board the first time I opened my SP Daily and saw and advertisement with some guy shooting the finger...guess that was Pedro, huh? If so, then who's that ranting in the Avatar for “Pedro 1”, as he seems to have a different hairstyle from the guy in the ad. Then today, I opened my SP Daily and saw the same ad with a dog's rear end in it. What's up with that? I feel insulted, either way, and have now taken that business off of my list of possible accommodations for my next visit. Which I'm sure is no great loss to anyone who would place an ad like those - surely, they don't need the business if they don't care who they offend.
Keep up the good work, Marty; it's much appreciated by many of us.

P.S. Glad I missed Globalboy all together! Doesn't sound like he's any better than those ads!!!

I for one welcome GB into our community. I am sure he will be able to show us poor ignorant Sewer Rats a better happier way to live. We could put him in charge of approving all public and private behavior. This would ensure that no one would be offended by any behavior as long as it was within GB’s guidelines. Our lives would be simplified because we would not need to spend any time worrying about the right way to behave and our productivity would increase.

NOT

Marty, don't have a holier than thou attitude when your friends and business alliances at the San Pedro Daily are the ones who started this whole mess by publishing the photo.

Re: manners - 11/16/06 07:30 PM

San Pedro Daily published the offending finger wave ad for Pedro for 2 or 3 days. How can you be so offended if you haven't even seen it?
Marty has no business relationship with San Pedro Daily... just a very good friend.

Looks like the original advertisement worked darn well. Three threads and counting...

Re: manners - 11/18/06 12:28 AM

Marty..I'm sorry if some of us overreacted a bit.
I tried to make it humorous and hope you don't think it was in really bad taste. If so, let me know(PM) me if need be.
You know I'm just a regular guy who works with his hands and Adores SP. I would never do anything to bring it down.
As for GB..I was offended by what he said..BIG TIME...

If we all judge people by what their income is then one of the most adoreable people who ever hung out in SP..Piasano would have been banned from the island by his standards.
I'll will discontinue use of the above mentioned persons name and all refrences to him.
But...

Oue Royal Order Of Sewer Rats has a full head of steam and are having a blast with it. Only for fun!
Sorry that you had to be involved at all.

I still plan on wearing my RAT ears to Pedro's in April..no matter what.

The good news is we all had fun...I did at least.
See you all in April...God willing...
