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