    I suppose it depends when they booked, if they booked early and 1st sitting was available at the time of booking then I don't think it is unreasonable, it is no different to 74 singles or 37 couples booking and requesting the same, if however it was a late booking which meant others who did book earlier wouldn't get their choice then that is wrong but I don't suppose any cruise line would divulge that information.

    I personally like the idea of Gardening Leave as OWT mentions, it would give the forum member time to reflect on previous posts and maybe review in future what they have said, I would just like to say to OWT that it would be a shame if he decided to 'jump ship' as I do find some of the comments both helpful and useful and long may they continue.

    He has been banned from another forum but what worries me is can he rejoin using another username because like all trolls he is clever. I know of at least one other forum he is currently a member.

    As I've read today, he certainly does have his own blog, and yes he does continue with his vendettas on there, funnily enough most of his crass remarks are about other forums from which he has been banned!!!!!!!!I'd say that tells a story in itself about the man, no doubt this forum and it's members will now also bear the brunt of his crass remarks.

    How old are you? You don't want SR on this forum but you still can't just drop it! Im pretty sure you can block people on here or at very least the comments that they are putting. If SR has such a vendetta against anyone then he has his own blog and I am pretty certain he will make his feelings quite clear on there.

    I would be interested to know if you ever asked him to 'let it go' ? The OP posted a view about a banned member and other members have posted their views. He continued to behave thus because he was allowed to. I am disillusioned with Admin because he wasn't banned for persistently mounting his skewed vendettas but because he did not obey the request to cease.

    That's your view but why should anyone have to not log on or leave a forum because someone cannot and will not cease the vendetta they are carrying out against their chosen targets? He would have carried on his vendetta forever on this forum but he will have been asked to stop but he clearly refused to comply. Your attitude is not dealing with the source! Why should anyone scuttle away in the face of unacceptable behaviour? Eliminate the source and you eliminate the problem. It's a shame it didn't happen sooner.

    I am shocked that a group of adults can say they have been 'attacked and abused', I don't believe in internet trolls because everyone chooses to log into the forum and read the posts. If you don't like what you see go onto another post, or another forum, or close down the computer! I don't know how people can have such strong feelings about what someone you don't know has typed onto a keyboard. There are real problems in this world and don't understand why people get so heated about words on a screen.

    Hi OWT, please carry on posting, we have met and you know that I appreciate your honesty, you are a voice of reason and as I said when we met I agree with a most of your observations, which are common sense.As Paul says the thing about common sense is it not very common.

    Hello Fudge, after reading 'that blog' it would appear that he's been banned from more than one forum therefore he is hopefully running out of places to post. I have to admit to being taken in by his photographs and reviews, but not having any previous knowledge I wouldn't of known. At least now he's been removed from this forum, you can post freely without fear of abuse. HLM.

    Hi I too was targeted by SR but I didn't rise to the bait and so he turned to others including yourself to ridicule their views. I agree he took differences in opinions too far and unnecessarily vilified member's on the forum just for the sake of it. Having read your views on this topic I have changed my mind, I originally said that I hoped he would return if he modified his behaviour, but I now think that he should be prevented from using this forum again. Furthermore, I hope his actions hasn't inhibited you from adding your honestly held views on this site.

    Wow, from what I've just seen Solent Richard is certainly a controversial individual, I'm not going to elaborate to much but I think on reflection this forum is better off without him. I've just read a certain blog and I'm mortified at the personal attacks he makes within it, not just against individuals but other cruise forums too. HLM.

    I also left this forum and renewed after a period away with a different username to avoid the abuse I was receiving from SR.

    Surely we are all allowed differing views and freedom of speech and I for one having been on the receiving end of SR's manners in the past I for one think that this forum would be better without him. Secondly I would be very upset to see OWT take gardening leave and hope he has second thoughts.

    Firstly, there was banter between individuals but what I and others experienced was not banter. I must conclude that comments made by the now banned members yesterday (?) violated assumed issued warnings thereby resulting in a ban. I echo Dancing Queen's remarks towards OWT - and I for one do not feel that any amount of photos and reviews excuses the abuse he directed at those he chose to abuse without a care fir the membership. He thought that his photos reviews and experience made him untouchable.. He questioned my integrity, spoilt my use and enjoyment of this forum and that is indefensible in my book.

    Please don't feel you should take gardening leave it is always a pleasure to read your contributions OWT unfortunately your post has stirred up feelings especially from those of us who have been on the receiving end. I meant what I said you are a very nice man and such loyalty towards this man is not deserved.

    Hi Dancing Queen, My post was not meant to stir up feelings amongst members, far be it from me any such intention and it had nothing to do with loyalty. I think my reply to Fudge explains that. I didn't know that Sue-Spud had been banned, however in view of what several of you have said I will not post any further as I have no wish to become embroiled in controversy, there's enough of that in the real world. My original post said 'Without taking sides' and I meant it, I don't take sides so I will take a spell of self imposed 'Gardening Leave'. Regards, OWT

    Hi I have no major issues with Solent Richard. although like Fudge he did accuse me of lying over my cruise history. I didn't pursue this further and so I didn't get any more feedback. Although some of his photographs were of interest many were too self indulgent who is interested in seeing him with a drink at bar or showing a photograph of a menu etc these in my opinion were just a waste of time. However, I do hope that in time he will be allowed to post again on the forum but he must show restraint in criticising those who disagree him and accept we all have different opinions.

    OWT. I have not logged in, or posted here for some time because I was persistently harassed and distressed by Solent. He called me, and others, liars, as well as other forms of denigration, something to which you were never subjected and of which you have no experience. Every attempt I made asking him to cease were ignored. I do not know the circumstances of his banning but trust that Admin felt justified in taking this action. I am disappointed that you appear to place more importance on reviews and photographs more than how some individuals were not afforded the same courtesy extended to you.
