MarionCK

Marion asked me to let others know she can no longer post here, so she will not be able to respond to any questions directed to her.

Lois or Marion: I, too, would like to know why Marion cannot post here if it is a Fodor's reason. If it is a personal reason, then I guess it's really none of my bidness, but if truth be told I'd still like to know. I've come to admire and respect Marion's postings as I've read them over the past couple of years. If either Lois or Marion reads this and feels comfortable doing so, please send an email to ejcrowe42ataol.com. You know what to about the "at." Thank you!

She posted as late as this morning. Click on her name and read some posts. Apparently she may have gotten crosswise with Fodor's on a post regarding villa owners. It seemed all seemed tame to me, especially considering some of the stuff that's gone on here lately, but her posts mentioned she'd been locked out by Fodors at some point.

Lois,

Thank you so much for posting.

I still have no idea why I was blocked...but did write a letter to the editor...and voila...here I am.

Thanks again !

Marion

The thread you are talking about is "Island Harbour/more growling". It does not make any sense, why she can't post, if it is a Fodors decision. I hope this blows over, I really enjoy her posts. Carol

Glad that is resolved. The only time I have seen a poster blocked by Fodors was the infamous Bahamas obsessed Harald and he wrote a delusional diatribe on just about every Bahamas related post. Finally Fodors found a way to bar his posts much to most everyones delight if not behest. Actually I was once informed by Fodors that blocking someone can get them into major trouble with the FCC as this is a public forum.

Welcome back Marion, you would have been missed terribly. I admire someone who can tell it like it is.

JW: I don't believe the any content of the world wide web is regulated by the FCC. Think about it for a second. Fodor's can block any user or poster if not in compliance with their user agreement.
Marion: Welcome back!

Thanks to everyone for the kind words ! However, I'm thinking we should get back to discussing travel, before the editors reconsider my re-instatement ;-)

Ah yes, I certainly remember Harald ! I always posted that we should just ignore him. A tough request !

Yes dear Faith, I do remember when you were Willem and my surprise to learn that you are Canadian and not Dutch ;-)

I'll add that email conversations can often be misunderstood, which is one of the reasons I put in so many emoticons, just in case my sense of humor is misunderstood ;-) !

I'll let you all know how the Harbour Island search progresses...but I surely won't complain about property owners ever again.

You can teach an old dog new tricks !

Marion

CS. I don't know but that is what the reply from them was when I asked about a certain prickly poster. Maybe an editor can clarify. I do know that this Harald charcter posted way over the edge for quite a while before they blocked him. Good point though. BTW guess what my son got me for fathers day? A card was fine AND he also gave me a six pack of Red Stripe. Yah mon.

What an awesome Father's Day! I love Red Stripe! A great gift from your son. My son is only 20 mos old....so that was out of the question. My wife picked me up a nice bottle of Cabernet, however!
