Disappointed that the mods apparently killed Bill's post re "Anybody else nervous"

    I try to stay out of the Pub. I was surprised to see a post from Bill there, but now I see it was moved by the mods. There's definitely some wacky material in that thread.

    Without looking at that thread I'm just going to interject something here. If the concern is about whether or not to go to Bali due to the current political situation I would counsel you to go. I've been many times, am currently considering relocating to Bali in about a year, when I retire. And in 2001 ... a month after 9/11 ... I was in Bali when the USA began its ongoing war in Afghanistan. Yes, there was some protesting going on in Jakarta, which is many hundreds of miles away on a different island. But the folks on Bali were not at all part of that. If anything, they went out of their way to reassure us that nobody would bother us over what was going on elsewhere in the world. And nobody did.

    Don't let some media hype impact your plans ... there are few places on this planet more peaceful than Bali. And it's a fantastic place to go diving.

    It's a rough and tumble kind of place ... but we're all friends in there despite the rhetoric. I've met several of my fellow Pubsters in real life, and they're good people ... even if we do get a bit, er, confrontational with each other online. It's all in fun ...

    You can't judge a Pub thread by its title.. We dont have rules concerning staying on topic. So it gets derailed multiple times. A few threads are now dedicated.. but lots of movement in them.

    I should have heeded Storker's subtle warning. I have been enjoying SCUBABOARD as a break from all the fighting in my own kitchen, don't need to go out looking for more!

    We don't really fight in The Pub ... it's more like a bunch of old people sitting on a fence gleefully swinging socks filled with cow manure at each other ...
