It is a matter of opinion of course, but I made request and I do not feel that I "police" this board. Remarks like Slava's here below serve no purpose at all. It gives a lot of aggrevation.
Maybe I understand the word "policing" in the wrong way as English is not my native language, but I feel that I do not act as a policeman, because I can not enforce anything. I can only ask for a more friendly atmosphere and postings that are in concord with the policy of this board.
I am very grateful for the advice of several people and met in real life some very good people because of this board. I feel it my duty to contribute something to this board. If one of my contributions could be to pacify a bit then that seems good to me. It is a pity that you see it as "policing"
Furthermore I know that the webmaster appreciates my efforts here on Brama. The travel board was initially set up for more businesslike persons. The development here went into another direction then the Brama people originally envisaged. They did not object, and trust more or less our self-regulatory powers. Why not comply?
Dalton, who needs the aggrevation? Look how it has been in the past sometimes, hate and accusations all over the place. I personally have no wish to have that back.
As far as the whole marriage business is concerned I tried to make a positive remark about asking Brama to set up a board for that also. Apparantly there is a need here, aparantly the other board some people sometimes refer to is not enough or not good or not... what have you.
Or simply said. I also do not want to wade through a whole thread of useless information from people bickering amomg each other. Though I definetly make and see a difference between a poster who starts a flame war and the people who react to that. Certainly there are remarks that rightfully needs another perspective! Especialy as persons are attacked. If persons are attacked that I know in real life to be different I also will make a remark about that. But as far as I am concerend I prefer a situation were these things are not necessary.
Hope that this answers your question, more or less :)
: : derogatory remarks about other people and organizations. It is counterproductive in the end for the poster him- or herself and it gives this board a bad name. Certainly the efforts of Brama to run this board do not deserve this!
: : Furthermore I request that we refrain from posting that have to do with international marriages. There are other boards for that. Or we request Brama to set up such a board also.
: : On this board we need hard, factual and checkable (Dan, is that English -grin-?) information about anything travel related.
: : Sincerely,
: : Hans
: Hans; Why do you always think that you should police this board.
