I’ve discovered something about travel message boards–with only one exception, some people on all travel message boards can be really mean. Now, I’m not saying that all people on message boards are mean–I’d say about 85% of message board people are really nice and helpful. Hell, I planned most of our last trip with lots of help from the wonderful people at Rick Steves. But there are some people that just cannot resist the urge to be judgmental jerks just because the internet provides that evil catalyst, anonymity.
However, I did mention that there was one exception, and it is rather amusing. I’ve encountered mean people on message boards dealing with topics from Thalys trains to Caribbean cruises–but no one has ever been mean to me on the Disney World Message Board. Everyone there is really, really nice. Maybe it really IS a magical kingdom!
