I rang up yesterday but I don’t think the person I spoke to knew what I was talking about..

I am surprised that there is no check on the posted language, these things ought to be identified at source and deleted before they get as far as appearing on the forum. Most other forums I use dont appear to be affected as regularly as this one.

To make matters worse I am now getting emails linked to this attack!

That's why I try never to open anything on-line that looks suspicious, like you if I occasionally do open something by accident, it can lead to a flood of spam e-mails.  Fortunately my Sky Yahoo account generally dumps these in the Spam folder before I see them.

It is plainly obvious that Bolsover have no interest in this forum and maintaining it and making sure it is safe for users. Will have to find another cruise forum to frequent.

There is a rather good community one that inherited a lot of the old P&O forum members, and of course there is always the Critic one  which  currently has an active P&O page, and if all else fails there's facecloth.

Problem is sinbad10 forums are past their sell by date. When they first began in about 1985 they were the 'In' thing and from there forums sprang up that specialised in various subjects, such as cruising. When Facebook began in 2004 people began to move away from forums as they acquired 'Friends and Followers' to their FB accounts. Some cruise forums continued to expand as did cruising along with the number of cruise lines. Now cruising has come to a virtual stop with no restart date in sight, the cruise forums have suffered as their main topic has been taken away. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tik Tok are now the current social media platforms. Basically there is no cost to the account holder and they can reach a far larger audience, people can still hold conversations and discuss various topics. The Princess Cruises passenger page FB page has over 95,000 members, P&O, 51,000 members.

I use FB but mainly for keeping tabs on  close friends and family members and their photos and comments, but there are too many posters on the cruising pages to foster the same camaraderie that there is on the specialist cruise forums, so for me these forums will remain my main source of info exchange.

You make a good point towny44 but unfortunately times change. 

I doubt that the two main cruise forums I use will be withering and dying anytime soon OWT, in fact during this covid crisis they are more active than before  and they were always far far more active than this one has ever been.
