When the topic was weather I posted about the weather, its that simple. TA is populated by many that cant read a weather report (so is loco gringo). when they are explained to them they have some sort of need to get upset. I frequently get asked to return to TA and post but that clearly cant happen. Actually there are forums out there were people discuss actual travel issues and you never see a question about how to read a weather report so its for the better.
I remember actually liking quite a few of your blunt posts, they were often funny in the 'wish I had the guts to post that response to some of the moronic questions!' way ....but sometimes they were a little TOO blunt, too, downright rude.

Thanks but I don't see the courage involved. Getting banned from travel forums just is not a disaster to me. People that read a weather forecast that says 10% chance of scattered T-storms and decide their vacation will be a washout shouldn't be allowed to breed. Like the saying goes "stupid should hurt"

Don't worry about going off topic, their holiday ended last March.. They probably are not even following it anymore.

Hi Ken And Shannon if you are still on here, it was nice meeting you two.
