A Modest Proposal


A suggestion for the board admin: Pick an arbitrary date and make clear that from that point anyone whose posts are primarily composed of negative attacks on other posters will be banned. Perhaps we could get back to being a resource for information rather than a forum for the personal pettiness that seems to prevail these days. Just sayin.

Would that include making statements political in nature...like about palm trees, water levels, etc? Maybe all the rules should be enforced for EVERYONE or not at all.

refuting peer reviewed science b/c you don't have the smarts to understand ... should be banned. (ever notice how the vast majority of 'dem folks are god-fearing. (things that make you go ... hmmm?))

Truly and objectively offensive posts should be reported to the mods using the report button. That's what it's there for, and it works.

Too many good quotes. I don't see an over the top negative
rhetoric tenor here, sure the occasional thumping of the
chest. Nothing that, if one is offended, that scrolling down to
another topic won't alleviate. The inane topics, such as
what Tiger Woods is doing, the run that topic receives
is what I find offensive, but there is room for everyone

I agree!!! How do you think I feel getting beat up upon because I like Coors Light beer. All of these beer snobs with their hopped up boutique beers. Yikes, they're almost as bad as winos who sniff corks. I say ban them all.

Wouldn't it be a wunnerful world if we all believed just like Kurt and another not-to-be-ever-named-again believed? There'd be no worries or FAKE NEWS, huh.

Well, it seems to me that of late, most folks are not being so rude any more.

Which indeed makes it a pleasure to read any thread.

Interesting responses but much as I expected. Please note that I was addressing "negative attacks on other posters." Not anyone's political views or beer preferences. "Negative attack" seems pretty easy to define, at least to me.

Also I had hoped that the title of my post might show my intentions were a little tongue in cheek. My high school English Lit teacher forced me to read Swift's essay of the same title and introduced me to the use of satire.

I like satire.

I don't mean spirited people.

Kurt, the OJ will always be cold and ready for you in my ice chest!

Debra (aka Travelpearl), (RIP), had a signature here that read: "Mean People Suck"

I agree! The purpose here was for Baja travelers to exchange travel info and fishing stories with others and be a place where friendships are made. For the most part that has been true on Baja Nomad ever since Doug started this forum in 2002. As with any large 'family', there will be exceptions.

When I was around 15 years younger, I had the energy to host parties where we could meet each other and meet those in the Baja travel world as well a Baja book authors. Word spread and we had off road racers, resort owners, and more come.

Those events were called VIVA BAJA and they did inspire the creation of M's BBBB parties and Keri's Pyramid Resort Book Signing events, I wish a new Nomad would be interested in putting together more such get-togethers. I think they really did a lot of good for all of us to learn more about Baja and each other.

Eric and Earle Robitaille of Amigos de Baja (our perferred forum before Nomad) enthusiastically attended and supported the events, as did Doug 'Baja Nomad'. A place where Baja loving people could meet and become friends was welcomed.

You may still see some faces that are here on Nomad to this day...
Viva Baja #1 (2000): http://vivabaja.com/vivabaja/
Viva Baja #2 (2001): http://vivabaja.com/vivabaja2/
Viva Baja #3 (2002): http://vivabaja.com/vivabaja3/
Viva Baja #4 (2003): http://vivabaja.com/vivabaja4/

With 'BajaCactus' (Antonio) in Tijuana for Viva Baja Cactus (2006): http://vivabaja.com/vivabajacactus/

Will anyone step up a host new Viva Baja style get-togethers?

Seems like your post was targeting someone? I don't know about mean spirited people but I sure wonder why, no matter who is involved or what the subject is, one person always seems to be in the middle of it all.

Compared to some of the outrageous things I've SEEN in Baja, the word stuff on this forum is relatively mild.
