What ever happen to the friendly board?

What ever happen to the friendly board? - 05/14/06 03:35 PM

Deacon pointed out I was not on the Chat forum.
Thank you for your comments Deacon.

What ever happen to the friendly board that I remember? People trying to help people that had never been to Belize. The friendly people living in Belize. The friendly people who travel to Belize trying to escape from the bitter winters and the everyday hum-drum of the rat race and work. A place to forget all your troubles and relax. Let's get back to the reason why Marty opened this forum. Let's be friendly and stop all the political bashing. I've said my piece (or peace).

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms.

It's still here Art, in spirit anyway. It just seems that sometimes this board goes cyclical.

People come & go. Some take time away to get away from the banter & contentiousness. The majority still care and I can almost guarantee you are lurking, not choosing to get into debates.

Discussions like this past week, are not off-limits, that's why the Big M gave us the "General Chat" section.

All too often, myself guilty as well, we tend to bleed the "chat" into those AC section threads intended for information sharing about the island & country as we know it. As our fellow boarder SS says, "discipline"

Self discipline, an interesting concept. Some have it, and a lot of folks don't. That would put all the moderators out of business, not to mention the police. No pants wonderday was my moment of clarity.

DP - your perspective is like no other. Personally, I'm coming to the conclusion self discipline is highly overrated!

"else" as in other than yourself! :p
Marty - as long as you're here it will always be friendly!
I'm bored of politics and everyone seems to be pretty much in agreement about sex, so can we start a good debate about religion? laugh

K - I'm sorry I'm unable to offer any assistance at this time, as I believe it is already quite obvious I can't even discipline myself! :rolleyes:
Marty, was that a religious prayer? laugh

I'm glad to hear that all is well in San Pedro and on the message board. Sometimes we all need a good shaking up to put us back on the right path.

ArtZ SmartZ / Kris,
I can't thank you enough for all the great suggestions and information about AC that you have and continue to contribute to this message board. We stayed at BYC and you were kind enough to tell us who to "look up" at that resort. You told us who to look for at the pool, etc., plus many "inside" secrets of AC. We still have the "Things To Do On The Island" list that you posted before our trip. It is a treasure! It was the friendly way that you shared your experiences on AC with all the newcomers that made us even more excited about our trip to Paradise. My husband and I are very thankful to you for representing the island spirit of kindness through your entries on this message board. Hope you had a great Mom's Day, I sure did!
Pam

sometimes people need to step back a bit and let others contribute too. count your posts sometimes, see if you are living here, and step back just a bit. and remember PM's use bandwidth that i pay for, and emails and instant messaging are free (to me). so if you are PMMing like mad with like a person or two you might switch to email or IM....

PM's are fine, don't get me wrong. its a super duper tiny tiny itty bitty piece of a penny or less for each one. but sometimes folks get to where they are PMming back and forth all night long and thats not really the purpose of PM, its not chat....

Pam,
Thank you & you're welcome. I'm glad I could help. I want everyone to love San Pedro and Belize as much as I do. I may not live there but I have been going there for eight years and stay any where from two to four weeks a year. I can give my perspective from a tourist's point of view. I'm glad you enjoy yourself.

I'm here.....just too busy to post most days. Our computer system crashed and I can't get into my system to do any work but I CAN get on the internet! YIPEE!!!! I finally get a minute to play!

There are good and bad in everything and then sometimes people just have a sucky day and have a garbage mouth. This too shall pass. It's all good......in the long run eh?

Everyone have a GREAT Day!
