Sorry if I offended anyone

I joined this website to reply to a common problem with my RV. I made a couple of tongue in cheek replies on an obviously light hearted forum(I thought)(walmart parking). If I offended anone I appologize. My last offense was nothing but a general observation, agreeing with the person I was replying to. I guess I am not the "Kind of people" for this website. Kindly inform me if you would like me to cancel my membership.

Stay in there!!
I don't care where you decide to land you will find narrow minded people that can not see beyond the end of thier world.
This is in fact a great form, I have met personally with a bunch of the iRV2 members and you could not want for better friends, the others that are cranky can be thier own best friends.

Welcome aboard and stay with us. From personal experience, some people really get their hackels up when Wally World is discussed. I now just try to avoid the subject.

Tom, hang in there. This great forum has a lot of personality.

It's hard to believe that Wally World creates such emotion.

To park or not to park at Walmart, that is the question.

Hey Pal, don't feel like you are alone.

I just got blasted big time on another forum about using 911. There are a ton of nice people on here and just a few who enjoy criticizing others.

Ignore the mean ones, they eventually go away.

Hang around, we need your input.

I haven't read your post but let me just say that I think you've done the right thing and now need to hang in here and enjoy. This is a great forum and I think you'll find some helpful people on here. I certainly know how it is to write something that simply doesn't translate well from my head to the paper. Glad to see you here.

What is it about Walmart parking that always results in hurt feelings and awful remarks? It isn't just on this forum it happens on them all (I belong to 4). The administrators try to keep this type of thing from happening but they can't catch it all. Just remember, this happens at some point to every one of us (especially where there are opinions posts made) and if every person who was a target of a negatively written reply resigned there would be very few left.

The problem on the Wal*Mart threads is someone always has to come in and say something like "If you're too cheap to pay for a camp site you shouldn't have bought an RV, you're a cheapskate". Stating an opinion is OK, belittling or calling names is not.

Most WalMart post will drive you over the edge everytime!! Wally post are like a lot of post on this forum or any other. There are some who go by the book or what they have read somewhre, some by experence, and even some who use common sense..You just have to weed through it and take what is useful or entertaining to you.. Happy Trail..

Let's examine this. You have a motorhome. You express your opinion. Someone doesn't agree with you. You sound like my kind of person. Hang in there.

As long as you don't attack anyone else personally no worries...Heck, its not a good post unless someone either violently agrees or disagrees wit cha!

There are always some folks who are intolerant of those who don't agree with them..

Keep on keepin on!
