I don't understand why some posters raise the same complaint over and over until eventually a moderator has to come in and send posters to a time out. The moderators should be there to keep out the flamers and trolls, not to make sure regular posters act like grown ups.
exactly!!

What are the best meals to cook on our grill we plan on having in the room? And how many jelly packets can we take from the food court without looking trashy?"

Don't post something inflammatory, and then get all indignant when people call you on it.

Pet peeve double edged sword

I know a lot of people wish that others would use the search function, and I completely agree with that. But, this can lead to another pet peeve that has been listed, which is the revival of crusty, old threads. I know that when I have used the search function, it has brought up some thread oldies (likewise with Google searches). Maybe be sure to check the date of the original thread post? I have been trying to do that but don't always remember to.

Start there and if you find you have a more detailed inquiry, feel free to post it.
I think the problem a lot of the times there is that things are changing every year and so a lot of time the info you get using google is outdated. Which makes this such a good place to ask questions? You an talk to people who just got back or who are still there

I don't like it when people make bad reviews on my favorite resorts. Just makes me sad. I love it why can't you?? Also when people complain about the buses. Just a bus, take a cab. Rent a car. Walk. You'll get there when you get there. I also don't like it when little kids squish the lizards or chase them. Same with the ducks. Not nice. They are just chillin' don't bother them.

Well said. I often wonder about the people who object to the so called morality police. Do they not have any little voice inside them that says "that's wrong, don't do it"? They advocate things that go against Disney or Disboard rules, or just common decency and good manners and then become indignant if someone calls them on it. Or perhaps they really are that clueless and need to be informed. Either way, I agree with a PP- they're asking for it.

I don't like it when people look down or judge resort choices. Who cares where or why someone chooses a deluxe over a moderate or a value over a deluxe? Some people do more than sleep & shower at the resort, some people would rather eat deluxe and sleep value, others want to splurge, others are on a budget...it's great there are so many resorts to choose from.

Extreme examples. First off. You aren't the morality police if you are explaining that something is against the rules or not allowed.

My pet peeve is more about stuff like asking for upgrades and or tipping staff.

I have no problem with anyone pointing out that someone is breaking the rules, when there is a rule.

Many of the Dis vets see the same question repeated over and over and over and.... you get my drift. It is a lot easier to simply post a link to the answer than to type out the same explanation over and over again. Although I do know of a few vets who apparently have been wise enough to simply save some of these answers and can just copy and paste into their posts. At least with a link you know the source of the info and can explore further when necessary.
I'm not even a veteran yet, and I've already seen the same questions posted many times.

According to this then I've just pee(v)ed myself. At my age these things happen sometimes. Maybe it Depends on whether you are attacking another person's pet peeve, or the idea that it is OK to advocate breaking the rules or doing something blatantly wrong. I would always make an exception when it comes to the latter. I find the term "morality police" derogatory, disrespectful and trollish.

But some people do have a problem with it, and the phrase Morality Police often comes out. It is very crazy!

Oh and then they add the ever popular "Well you speed when you drive, don't you? That means you can't judge others!" Yeah most people speed, so that means we throw all laws and rules of conduct out the window!
