    Trolls/Trolling

    This is not just for general postings, but also for private messaging and emails thru the Forum.

    Trolls and Trolling

    Trolls are not welcome and will be banned. An Internet "troll" is a person who delights in sowing discord on the Internet. They try to start arguments and upset people. Trolls see Internet communications services as convenient venues for their bizarre game. For some reason, they don’t "get" that they are hurting real people. To them, other Internet users are not quite human but are a kind of digital abstraction. Indeed, the greater the suffering they cause, the greater their "achievement" (as they see it). The anonymity of the net allows trolls to flourish. They are easily identified by the fact that they are constantly at odds with other members of the forum, and often "poke fun" at individuals they have disagreed with in the past, trying to provoke a reaction. Finally, trolls create a paranoid environment, such that a casual criticism by a new arrival can elicit a ferocious and inappropriate backlash. When you try to reason with a troll, he wins. When you insult a troll, he wins. When you scream at a troll, he wins. The only thing that trolls can’t handle is being ignored. Again we will ban anyone who practices "Trolling".

    A few things to read when you have a moment or 2.

    It is that time of the year to send out the gentle reminder to read the rules when you have a chance.

    http://www.aruba.com/forum/misc.php?do=showrules

    Also too...... As general reminders, if you are looking for a short or long term rental or a vacation rental for a week or 2 or 3 (to occupy or to rent out) please use the appropriate forums....not the "property owners" forum.

    If you have a timeshare to rent out......please add in the daily and the per stay tax that the renter will have to pay at the resort.

    Please if you have photos, please add them to your postings using the forum's software that is provided.

    Please know that your presence and participation are well appreciated and welcomed. All opinions are welcomed.

    Aruba is known for its welcoming ways and incredible hospitality. These forums here at Aruba.com are to welcome and inform with kindness, friendliness and hospitality.
