    Fudge got a reaction from B&M in Polite Reminder Of Forum Rules   
    Being big enough to take any flak is missing the point.  It is obvious that Admin don't want any flak at all.  It is also clear that by reminding members to remind themselves of the forum rules indicates that a member, or members, are not conducting themselves in accordance with the forum rules.

    That's the thing Enrique, most people are enjoying life and doing what makes them happy  - but  - whilst they are having a great time, don't have a care for what problems are left for future generations.

    Fudge got a reaction from The Bennett's in Noisy Cruise Neighbours - How Do You Politely Tell Next Door To Shut Up?   
    There are people who have no idea, or give a damn, about how living their life impacts on others, especially in the confines of cabins on ships.  Generally speaking if you have to point out to someone o be considerate you've probably wasted your time because it hasn't entered their head in the first place to be mindful of others.  In all probability, the neighbours are going to know it is you who has complained anyway.

    Having had an inside cabin and a balcony, I would prefer a balcony but a picture window is acceptable.

    Fudge got a reaction from HLM in Missing in action   
    People disappear from forums for a variety of reasons.  I'm still here but haven't posted because I found my position untenable.  There was a coterie who encouraged and backed up the posts of a ringleader (who was subsequently banned).  It was sport to them - a game, which only ended in the banning of the ringleader.  No more sport was to be had and they move on. 
    At best, it is possible that absent members may have been one and the same person, (sock puppets); another possibly left because his pal was banned.  Others may have passed away but one is still alive and kicking and talking about this very thread on his blog.  At worst, the novelty of a new forum wears off and they lose interest.

    Fudge got a reaction from Falmouthgirl in Electronic Smoking   
    The World Health Organisation has said that electronic cigarettes should be banned from indoor spaces and face curbs on their sales over health fears.  Despite releasing vapour instead of smoke the devices, officially known as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), still carry a risk to those standing around users, a report for the WHO said.   "The fact that ENDS exhaled aerosol contains on average lower levels of toxicants than the emissions from combusted tobacco does not mean that these levels are acceptable to involuntarily exposed bystanders.  "In fact, exhaled aerosol is likely to increase above background levels the risk of disease to bystanders, especially in the case of some ENDS that produce toxicant levels in the range of that produced by some cigarettes."
     
    Cruiselines ceasing catering for vegetarians does not pose a health risk for other people.

    I like formal nights and think they should be enforced.  When people are presented with a choice there will always be those who choose not to 'dress up' so there is a mish mash on formal nights instead of uniformity.

    To my mind a formal night is what it says - formal.  I think the suggested code statement is being read the wrong way.  I think it is there to give passengers an indication of what to wear on formal night, i.e. long evening gown or dinner suit, not an invitation to disregard/flout the type of evening it is.

    Firstly, there was banter between individuals but what I and others experienced was not banter. I must conclude that comments made by the now banned members yesterday (?) violated assumed issued warnings thereby resulting in a ban. I echo Dancing Queen's remarks towards OWT - and I for one do not feel that any amount of photos and reviews excuses the abuse he directed at those he chose to abuse without a care fir the membership. He thought that his photos reviews and experience made him untouchable.. He questioned my integrity, spoilt my use and enjoyment of this forum and that is indefensible in my book.

    OWT. I have not logged in, or posted here for some time because I was persistently harassed and distressed by Solent. He called me, and others, liars, as well as other forms of denigration, something to which you were never subjected and of which you have no experience. Every attempt I made asking him to cease were ignored. I do not know the circumstances of his banning but trust that Admin felt justified in taking this action. I am disappointed that you appear to place more importance on reviews and photographs more than how some individuals were not afforded the same courtesy extended to you.

    I would be interested to know if you ever asked him to 'let it go' ? The OP posted a view about a banned member and other members have posted their views.
    He continued to behave thus because he was allowed to. I am disillusioned with Admin because he wasn't banned for persistently mounting his skewed vendettas but because he did not obey the request to cease.

    That's your view but why should anyone have to not log on or leave a forum because someone cannot and will not cease the vendetta they are carrying out against their chosen targets? He would have carried on his vendetta forever on this forum but he will have been asked to stop but he clearly refused to comply. Your attitude is not dealing with the source! Why should anyone scuttle away in the face of unacceptable behaviour? Eliminate the source and you eliminate the problem. It's a shame it didn't happen sooner.

    I don't think people understand what it is like to be targeted, stalked, vilified and denigrated by someone hellbent on a crusade. One hears and reads so much about internet trolls but here we had one in our midst. All people cared about were the pics and reviews, it wasn't happening to them, so they didn't care. Everyone should have cared about what they were witnessing. I admit that arguing on here about what has been and written on that blog and elsewhere wasn't right, but the fact is that if he had been censured at the outset it would not have continued ad nauseam. It is human nature to defend oneself but some members telling those defending themselves against yet another snipe to let it go whilst not taking him to task was wrong. I would rather they had denounced and condemned him - he who created the problem in the further place. He made good sport out of his chosen targets without conscience or fear of consequences and I am glad that he has gone.

    Please don't feel you should take gardening leave it is always a pleasure to read your contributions OWT unfortunately your post has stirred up feelings especially from those of us who have been on the receiving end.

    Surely we are all allowed differing views and freedom of speech and I for one having been on the receiving end of SR's manners in the past I for one think that this forum would be better without him. Secondly I would be very upset to see OWT take gardening leave and hope he has second thoughts.

    I expect they believe they are making interesting conversation and imparting nuggets of information. Alternatively they are just Tommy Toppers who revel in feeling superior/more wealthy than other people. If the former, then fair enough. If the latter - then what sad people they are.

    I don't like the reclining seat but if it is there people will use it and they are not doing anything wrong. Preventing someone from using the recline function is wrong. People should complain to the airline about the provision of reclining seats in an already cramped space.
