    another gentle reminder from the rules

    ................Don’t say something to someone you wouldn’t say to them in person. This won’t stop a few people from saying inappropriate things, and those people should probably learn a few lessons about tact, respect, decorum, etc.

    the rules are listed in the left vertical menu bar
    <------ look to the left

    and i have a bit of a commentary now............


    we all need to use the SMILIES..............................------> see them here

    some folks are making comments and it could be teasing, could be comical or could be construed as being mean and or inappropriate . the internet leaves much room for interpretation. so we need help using the smilies.

    over the past few days i have received some private messages talking about
    people's poor manners.

    so folks, please do not use the smilies sparingly.
    use them freely so all know and understand the tone.

    Thank you Andrea for the gentle reminder. One of the things I love most about this board is the way that people talk to each other. Everyone is so very helpful and kind. They genuinely care about their fellow human beings and honestly want to help each other learn the most they can about Aruba - from the people who live full time on the island to the rest of us who love to visit. They also offer friendly advise about every day life....lets all think before we post and as Andrea said, don't hesitate to use smiles etc. Sometimes email and postings just don't convey what we are trying to say and symbols sometimes help. Thank you to all my friends and a big thank you to Andrea and Lisa for all they do to help the rest of us....

    Hockeymom is right on target! We get to spend 1 week a year on our favorite island and this BB really helps me to shape a day or two of that week by reading about new places, not so new places, etc. The BB also helps me get through the times when i'm bored at work wishing my ticker would move faster (right now) and when the weather isn't so good here in NJ. I understand that people get defensive when a favorite place is criticized, and that's ok as long as we remain respectful of each other. I really enjoy spending a few minutes "catching up" on what's happening 2000 miles away from here, even if I don't agree with the poster's opinion.

    I hope I have not offended anyone...I was a lurker for my trip to Aruba in 2010 and you all provided me with so much helpful info. I would never have had the knowledge of most things Aruban without this board and it made that trip infinitely less stressful than others I've taken. I joined earlier this year as I was planning my second trip and I love being able to come here and see all the great stuff about my favorite island. Thanks to everyone for making this such a welcoming and informative forum!
