Here's a provocative view of the future of the Internet and of social networking. Worth a read IMHO

    SS,

     

    Most interesting, but I don't want any part of Facebook or Twitter.

     

    They may be important to a lot of people, but not to me.  I enjoy MRI, and find it most interesting and rewarding.

    I'll stick with Insiders, and one or two more non-travel message boards that I play around with.  at this point, I don't see facebook in my future.

      I agree with Jerry and Husker.  No Facebook for me....  I enjoy MRI and it is plenty for me.

    SS,

     

    I'm in the no Facebook" camp too..... for the same reasons as the guys (chaps:-) above.

     

    I thought NU made an interesting point by implication: removing non-travel related material from MRI wouldn't mean that those who enjoy and value it would lose their only opportunity to participate along those lines; there are many, many alternative options.

      If I want facebook, I use www.facebook.com; if I want Marriott information, I use www.rewards-insiders.com, simple as that. But this site has blended both and it is very, VERY frustrating that I find some posters who I follow (because of their extensive knowledge and experience with Marriott) posting, sorry to be blunt, garbage to which it is impossible to link a Marriott "justification" for creating the post..

        I hope we can resolve this

          agreed.  Maybe we need a "contract with America"  so to speak.  some of the criticism is getting personal and that is a very bad sign. Heretofore, we have been able to have our differences without personal attacks.  How about a single thread to identify what and how we all want the site to evolve?

            Or how about a single area for posting personal attacks?

        So if I'm Lamont, then who's Fred?

        so, I guess the personal attacks will not be going away anytime soon.  that's too bad......but befitting of this reality show called MRI.

          shoeman, are you replying to this post that I made:

           

          chaps...I like that.  thanks.

           

          Hope not, because I was actually complimenting and thanking arkwright.  Maybe we just need a common language to ensure no misunderstanding.

            OK, I see something that is going to make reading some of these threads a little strange.  If anyone goes out and removes some of their previous comments (as I did the last 2 days to clean up some of my more frivolous comments) then you have the option of deleting all the replies that were chained to that, or leaving them.  I know the ones I removed (by the way, I didn't delete one out of this conversation), I left the others because I didn't think that was my place to remove some other's comments.  What that causes, I learned, is for the reply, directly connected to yours, to be now flagged as a response to the posting directly above yours.  While I understand that this needs to happen because those replies would be orphaned in the chain, this makes for some threads that don't make a lot of sense.

             

            Just wanted to point this out, and wonder if that happened here?
