OLD THREAD MYSTERY

Anyone care to explain how that "CARNIVAL CANCELLED MY BOOKING" thread reappeared, after it was closed (thankfully)  months ago?

I think only Simon could answer that .

I've noticed things like that happen now and again.  I figured it was me and my lack of being tech savvy. There are all my emails and/or posts that have vanished into the tech black hole.... maybe this is one of those that found it's way home?Wink

 

Sorry Auntie, cant buy that...yes "glitches" happen, and if they're analyzed, an actual explanation can be found...on the other hand....okay, I have a suspicious mind...its served me well...and its the nature of that thread that got me even more suspicious...it may just remain a mystery of the sea.....I  hope it gets pushed further and further down.  Those kinds of "discussions" don't do much for me...pointless IMHO....if it was done deliberately, and SIMON was responsible, and  had a reason, I'd appreciate it if he would state it....

 

Actually, when Simon closes a thread, I think he wishes they would simply vanish.  But he usually allows them to remain long enough so everyone is aware it has been closed.   Why this one popped up, good question.  You are new enough to have missed a few very contentious "discussions" that have been shut down and totally gone (along with some of the posters involved).  The negative and vitriol postings don't last long (thanks to a wonderful staff and Simon), and we can have reasonable discussions about things related to cruising (with a few threads that Simon allows for social interaction).

I have seen threads pop up in their "seniority" before.

The only thing I can think of that could do that would be if someone "liked" a post - the system could then read that as a new post.

 

Understood, AUNTIE..relatively new here, but hardly new to the "wonderful" times that can be had in cyber...I read for a few weeks offn on b4 I joined...subjects were interesting, posts by like minded, intelligent literate well traveled peeps....If the site had contained much of the other stuff, it would have done it without me.  Ive been in those sites...mostly financial...no holds barred...and if theres one thing Ive learned...its pointless, just this side of stupid......I like things the way they are in here...a few jibes herenthere, all in good fun...mostly good info, amazing the number of interesting things I've learned....and Im not paranoid about asking questions either....try THAT "elsewhere"....

OK I could buy that, mebbe….btw, you know the "unsubscribe" function doesn't work...yes they've created a ticket...been exchanging emails with a very very nice cust svc person in poohbah central....might be able to fix it in the future...and she was so darn nice about it, I really don't care....

 

Dude .. we are talking about software and logic and a world where everything exists in 1 and 0. Unexpected things happen because the logic was not thought all the way through or because unexpected conditions arise. 

That's why most of stay as well.  I've tried a few of the other forums and not been back to even see what's going on, because of the attitude. I also feel very comfortable asking questions and/or giving answers.  I do get a bit impatient with some posters that expect "us" to do their research.  Especially when the information is right here on Cruiseline.  Not the ones asking opinions, but ...

 

 

Cruiseline is hands down the friendliest cruise forum I have found.  I don't know why folks on the other forums take such pleasure in belittling newbies.  Here, I don't mind asking "silly" questions--if I want to know, it's important to me Happy
