I am really hoping this thread does not get automatically locked or not even posted as some other threads have been lately. I am not trying to spark any arguments or heated debates for sure but I just don't understand something. In the past few years since that I have been constantly glued to reading all of the wonderful posts on this site I can't help but notice a division between it's members. There has always been the rivalry between members who jump online at the drop of a hat to profess their love and devotion to one resort or another, the age old question of the weather, nightly activities at each resort, even au natural vs. not. These threads go on and on and you can find them on any page of the message board. But here recently I have noticed some getting locked very quickly, I am sure because the moderators are cautious of the direction they are heading in, but sometimes it may not be a bad thing to give these threads some time to breath and let members resolve some issues on their own.
That being said, I have noticed from a spectators point of view it this site has changed and it is not all for the better I might add. I have seen some of these veteran posters that are here all the time treat some posts as if they are completely astonished or horrified that some of these questions or even asked. This is very sad that a message board dedicated to such a wonderful chain of resorts can turn into such an ugly environment over something as simple as a wedding or a hangover question.
Anyone who has been to Couples and truly enjoyed the resort will always hold it near and dear to our hearts. But, unless our name is followed by the initials C.E.O. or owner of the resorts, then sometimes " It is best to just let a sleeping dog lay". If a poster asks a question as members we should try to inform them of the facts we know try to point them in the right direction for their answers. If Couples does not have a problem with what the poster is asking or doing and they are not violating any policies, then it makes no difference what our opinion on a particular matter is. Everyone that chooses to spend their hard earned money at Couples Resorts, no matter their lifestyle choices, sexual orientation, married, engaged, single, widowed, rich, poor, old, young, beautiful or any other thing. If COUPLES decides they are welcome at the resort than that is all that matters.
If there is no violations of any policy in the eyes ofCOUPLES RESORTS, than they have the right to be there just as much as any of us no matter how many times we have been to the resorts, Couples was designed for all of it's guests to enjoy, not just the select few. We all go to these resorts to enjoy ourselves, and it is a certifiable guarantee that there is no way we all enjoy the same things on vacation. Some enjoy reading books on the beach, me I would never spend my day in a book while I am in paradise, but you no what that is the beauty of this world, we are not all alike nor should we expect everyone to act the same way, like the same things, dress the same. We are a world of different cultures, races, and personalities and some people just need to accept that.
Sorry for such a long post, I don't even know if this will make it to the board. But if it does I hope we can all take at least something from it. COUPLES is a wonderful place and we all dream about it all the time until we are back in paradise. If we can let's all try and take a little of Jamaica back with us when we are on this board as well and just remember, "RESPECT" - TO ALL......
