Where's the community - where are posts?

    Are you are referring to the 636 replies posted under, Welcome to our 2009 Program Changes forum!"?   If so, take a look here:  Re: Is Marriott Censoring Unfavorable Posts??

    BClark,

     

    It was your post among others that compelled me to speak up about the connection between 'Content' and 'Community.'  

     

    Marriott's intent in launching Marriott Rewards Insiders is to develop "An Online Travel Community."  Community doesn't happen by itself.  Community is a result of shared thoughts, ideas, goals and objectives.  Community is experienced in the celebration of achievements, in the grieving of shared loss among other ways.

     

    Online, community is built around content.  The posts, the discussions, the pictures, video and jokes - we all share.  Controlling that content and censoring it unjustly will diminish community.  That's what happened with the removal of, Welcome to our 2009 Program Changes forum!  

     

    Good news!  All 636 posts in the discussion thread, Welcome to our 2009 Program Changes forum! are restored.  The act of restoring content does not in and of itself recreate this online community.  Over time, those who participated in the discussion will hopefully revisit.  

     

    If you are reading this BClark, welcome back!
