Hi all,

Recently I have noticed a trend where people post questions about cruise-related topics and many of the responses end up having nothing to do with the topic! Often these are little asides which are attempts at sounding humorous or otherwise witty and cool. And, I admit to being guilty of this myself.

This note is to remind everyone (including myself) that we need to respond to threads in a pertinent manner, and not hijack the threads in some attempt to impress others with how witty we are (or we think we are). For example, if someone posts a note asking about XYZ cruise ship they deserve to get responses about XYZ cruise ship - and not a bunch of non-related notes about what someone had for breakfast that morning, wry comments about someone's good fortune to take many cruises, or other guffaws and knee-slappers. Please try to keep on-topic, and keep the "happy hour bar chatter" in the appropriate threads.

Thank you for listening.

Will-do, Dave. I'm a guilty party. Thanks for the reminder. In future postings, I'll be more careful.

For those that would like to engage in off subject matters, feel free to send me personal messages. I will do my best to abide by the rules of the forum as well.

Being one of the biggest offenders I will make every effort to abide. Yes, "the dude abides".

Oh! This is going to be hard.

Maybe it would help if I made this thread an informational posting only and not something that people feel a need to reply to. I really only want everyone to read my note and try to do better.

So - this one is closed to further responses.

Please everyone - just read and heed.
