Resort board pet peeves?

Mine are the use of acronyms for evvvverything - yo I was at CR in the CL after I got back from F! with my DH and DS and DD (8) then we went to MK via the TTC. MNSSHP was happening and it was cool to get a snack with the DDxDP. Favorite snack was from ASM better than most TS offerings, Headed to AKL with DH tomorrow for KS hope it's awesome! Then finish up at B&C at the BC don't even need an ADR! YMMV IMHO! Make sure you get the SV at AKL if renting DVC. Pass the ROFR before contract is valid! SSR and OKW FTW! AoA! SAB is awesome and so close to the IG!

Don't forget to have a BLT and watch the MSEP and then head over for EMH to ride SM. CP is the best character breakfast!

Thank you for this thread!

Mine are, "Talk me into..." or "Talk me out of..." a certain resort.

Lol I have been guilty of similar posts. I also laugh at the posts where people are like "had the worst experience ever because my family of 25 with six connecting rooms seven food allergies and my 2 grandparents with severe dementia did not get all,of their requests honored and I had to walk down a hallway to get to my room instead of being teleported there"

Not very user friendly. When I first started to see DH and DD on this board I was so confused, and when I learned what it
meant I thought "gee, is this place run by grannies" yes dear!

I'm with you! There was one today styled "sell me on . . ." And in thinking, no -- I like that place and the fewer people who do, the less crowded it will be.

Good for you! =) Another pet peeve I have is referring people to a 400 page resort thread to find an answer to a question. That takes forever!

YES!
And any thread title that comes across as a demand....like Convince Me, Sell Me, Make Me, Tell Me, Show Me...whatever, usually without even a 'please' attached really gets me.
I've had a lot of help from this forum and understand why people ask questions, and am always happy to give thoughts that may be helpful, but there is a polite way to ask and otherwise it sure doesn't motivate me to reply at all.

Great topic!
