Then the privacy issue. What people fail to realize is that nothing on the web (or technology for dat matta) is private. With the proper tools and time, anything can be found out about anybody. Simply participating, in any manner in any forum, exposes one to people who know how to look. Not to mention the people who monitoring everyting we seh. (Hi!)

I've been a member since my first trip to Jamaica in '99. I started reading and all I could do was laugh at Wendy, Jazz, Jahlive, and that crew. Although my grandmother was born & raised in Jamaica, she did not speak patois, nor did her nieces an other Jamaican visitors, so I had to read the patois aloud to get to the meaning of what they were writing. For years when I got more familiar with Jamaica and its people, I stuck by the board; posting trip reports (sometimes up to 5 trips/year) and reading trip reports of others.
Then around 2004 or '5, there was an influx of new members. These people weren't funny at all. They were opinionated, and spiteful to those of us who loved Jamaica, but couldn't really claim actual island birth. Tropicana has mentioned what happened to a member, who was forced to retire from her job when her postings during the work-day were sent to her supervisors. She mistakenly thought her fellow boardies were friends, and told too much of her personal life. With this information, some one, either jealous, or just hating, used that against her. Then there was the postings of some who reflected the worst of Jamaican culture; small-minded, insular, homophobic, and misogynistic. Events of this type are well-documented in Jamaica, but when I stayed in the country one summer, I saw an openly gay youth who was popular in his little community, so homophobia is not universal. It kind of reminds me of the narrow-mindedness of the US Teaparty. Anti-choice, anti-woman, anti-immigrant (Mexicans are all drug mules), anti-voting rights for minorities. It isn't that the Teaparty stands for all white Americans, but they are so vicious and loud, that the average citizen does not want to get involved in a face-off confrontation; they just expressed themselves in the voting booth in 2008 and 2012.
Because of the hostility that I saw growing on the board, I usually don't post. Maybe once or twice/week I will read then move on. I have better things to do than get aggravated by a bunch of people that I have no desire to communicate with. I miss the old board and its members.Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it will become your destiny.~~Lao Tzu~~
