I too think it is a great idea. I wonder if this suggestion should perhaps be the start of a new thread.

I made a comment about a month ago which was meant to be humorous rather than harmful and was promptly flamed in the grand manner in a private response. ..... Since there is no qualifications test for posters to assure that they have a least a minimal sense of humor, this sort of thing will happen ...

Some of us are hoping that in the next set of enhancements we get when David upgrades the forums, that he'll include the ability to embed the "smilies" that are common on other forums. It helps sometimes in pointing out the humor. 'til then we're stuck using the [humor] [/humor] and [sarcasm] [/sarcasm] tags.

Who's On Line and Why Do They not Post?

  |
Having been flamed more than once I do find it puts a damper on my willlingness to stick my head out again...but I just about always come back for more because the information is so valuable.

It is important to reinforce the reading of prior posts and the search engine. I would suggest that actual examples of that be included in the subscription information. Ususally when I put in the same word in different order I get very different results - all enlightening and helpful. It is hard to re-read the same old basic stuff repeatedly, but that's a part of finding the gems.

And a follow up to the two most recent flames I have been nailed about - the 1963 Chris Craft boat is coming to Ajijic, paperwork from the Harbor Master is in order and an actual concrete dock and boat ramp has been found at an estate on the southside of the Lake. However, trucking it is a problem as the rules are stiff on the size truck, so we have our thinking caps on. And for flame number 2 - the 17 3/4 year old daughter will not be driving as she is either staying home working two jobs or going to visit another daughter in Indonesia.

Plus, just let me say that I probably would not have believed that my baby a "63 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible" could not survive any single corner in a Mexico city had you guys not been so vocal about it. When I got there, I got it. After our visit it went on the market. Thanks for the head up. It would've been gone, or wrecked in a very short period of time. You told me, I listened. That what this is all about. Thanks.

Re: eyesight and highway number signs. It's not your eyesight. A lot of the signs are so faded out you can't see them anyway. Especially around Monterrey! At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I think itīs unrealistic to expect people to trek back very far in the forum to see if a question has already been asked. A day or so back would be reasonable, but these threads sometimes are interminable, plus things are often said that are not reflected in the subject line. Sometimes lots of digging would be required. Too much, I say. And whatīs the problem with answering a question twice? Itīs not like many people rambling here have real jobs or anything.

I agree, it is not easy treking back to find a subject. Why do you not simply enter KEY words and do a search on the "search Post" link above? For example try entering starchoice and you will find all posts on the subject.

Wow, who would have thought. Shocked It appears to be a well kept secret though, so thanks for letting me know where to find them. Wink

I guess this means I can stop resorting to [humor] [/humor]........... Laugh



Thanks

There is a humongous treasury of information on MexConnect. Too often, I fear, we tend to think of this site in terms of the forums and the main page of the magazine. Some (a lot?) of diligent searching through the gateway of the Main page will keep one busy reading for a long time. Hell, this website is even larger than mine. Smile

Absolutely! If you need a smiley face to tell it's funny - the current state of communication is in serious (pun-face?)disarray.

Oh, dear, dear. Rolly, you wrote "Hell" in a message. I just recently read the forum guidelines. It says use of profanity "will absolutely cost your membership to the forum." That's pretty clear. I've enjoyed reading your stuff, and I am sad to see you go. Unsure

Re: [Rolly] Cussing

A "damn" too? You notice I am putting your outbursts in quote marks so as to treat them as objects, not expletives. I am blameless. However, since it seems nothing is happening to you, I can only conclude that the forum guidelines are not really rules. They are simply things to be enforced if there is, perhaps, money to be made by the enforcer. They are like Mexican laws!

Re: OK, OK, OK...

I will take the heat. I must confess that I am the subject of the lovely Carron's post which seems to have provoked a lot of interest. It was not my intent.
I have wanted to live SoB for 30+ years since my first trip and have just, at 53, finally come to a stage in my life that it is posssible as far as $ are concerned. Of course, then my health went much farther south than I have ever wanted to venture.
I have posted over the last year and under the name of el queso grande. You may see them along with a picture of one of my latest english bulldogs pups if you wish.
I would be living south at this very moment if I had been able to have my hip replacement in Mexico as opposed to the US. Now, in four years, I have had 4 replacements on the left side alone and am in much worse shape, as far as the legs go, than before I let the butchers touch me. Now they are trying to figure out whether to take out my gallbladder or something else and I am problably going to be just dumn enough to let them do it as opposed to coming south and getting some proper care.
I did not mean to infer that the folks on MC were not kind. And for anyone who knows me shy would be the last word they would use to describe me. I have spent many months south but not since '95 because of a divorce and then the health issues.
I am not able now to get out of bed everyday and stay up with all you wonderful folks like I would prefer but there are a great many of you that I think of often and somehow consider friends even though we have not yet met.
Carron made my day with her discription of crossing the border and if you want to know what I am talking about then use the search feature; hope you can do it better than I.
Most of the folks I know get really tired of my going on and on about Mexico and the tales that I relate about many of you. I really appreciate all of you and the wonderful service that you do. Many of you may never know how many you have touched in a positive way. I do pray that I will one day soon I'll join ya'll and be able to give more first hand up to date info for those smart enough to find the greatest place to live and the best folks to be around.
Please pardon my ramblings...I was touched by the responce.

With regard to Rolly's alarming profundites (whoops, was that profanities?) I am really "PO'd" about these arbitrary posting rules. Of course you all know that means "Post Officed"!

OK, folks. This thread is starting to wander like an unbridled chayote plant. And that mean it's locking time. Free to start up the conversation anew in a new thread.
