Hey Emma,

I have just finished reading your first trip report which was excellent and I along with all these other great people can not wait to hear about what this next trip had in store for our favourite Disney snob Hoping for an update soon!

Oh and if I ever stay Animal Kingdom concierge I will be joining your Jane Austen book club. She is my favourite author.

I have been waiting for this TR to start since I finished the last one! You are such an eloquent and articulate writer, I am more than happy to travel vicariously with you and your AG dolls! I myself am a self proclaimed Disney Snob and I love it! I can not wait to hear all about your latest travels

Your trip report from earlier this year is what kept me coming back to these DISBOARDS. That report was truly enjoyable to read, and it captured my imagination.

...waiting for MoRe of this new report!

Wooohoootty! You are back! I am so excited to read about your tails. Do come back and give us some more. You are inspiring! It is so great to read about a young lady who has a great attitude, takes her education serious and can write well! You Go Girl!

p.s. As I mentioned in you last TR...I am still looking into buying the perfect AG Doll for my little girl.

PLEASE COME BACK!

A Note from Betsey

It's not Emma -- it's her mom.

Freedom of Speech is a value we all hold dear. But every freedom comes with a responsibility. Your right to swing your fist ends where another person's nose begins. Your freedom to speak your opinion ends where personal attack on another begins.

The DIS has always taken pride in being a safe and friendly place. Ad hominem attacks should be immediately deleted -- especially from trip reports. In a trip report, the author opens him or herself up, sharing experiences and memories. It is a vulnerable position. Name calling should not be tolerated. Perhaps custom might allow for more leeway on the Community Board where volatile topics might be discussed and where people might seem to "ask for it" when posting outrageous or extreme opinions. A trip reporter who shares her Disney World memories is not "asking for it." If you don't like her sense of humor or attitude, move on to another trip report. The rule on the Trip Report board should be, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."

So Emma won't be back to this particular thread unless the personal attacks are deleted. Failing that ideal resolution, let's post to it no more, and let it fade into the oblivion that lies beyond page five. Emma will try starting fresh soon.

Thanks to all the kind people who have posted here or PMed her.

Hi Betsey!

I totally agree 100% with you. It really bothers me when individuals post cruel and insensitive remarks on a trip report. If the person reading it doesn't like it, they should just move on...

Instead of the moderators threatening to close the thread, the judgemental remarks should be deleted at once. It isn't fair that the majority of the individuals who are enjoying it be deprived of the memories.

I must add Betsey, you have an amazingly eloquent daughter. Her writing is captivating and amusing. She definitely has an incredible talent. My daughter has been enjoying Emma's recounts of her trip along with her American Girl Doll at WDW pics.

We hope to be reading her latest report very soon!

Emma & Betsey

I'm sorry that you had to experience first hand some of the poor manners that crop up here from time to time. Myself and many others here enjoyed the first trip report and were quite looking forward to this one. I'm sure that you, Emma, were quite hurt by the comments that were left and it is understandable that you would not want to continue this thread until they were removed. I do hope that if Marla Hellwig isn't able to clean up this thread that you will consider beginning anew. I think that it's pretty obvious that the number of well meaning, caring people do outnumber the insensitive.

It is unfortunate that of late, more and more trip reports are falling subject to a handful of people choosing to make unkind remarks. It is truly unfortunate that yours fell to this as well before it even had a chance to get started.

I'll keep an eye out for your trip report - keep your head up!

Abby
