Yes, you got me, I am the DVC police. Either that or I'm just someone who gets frustrated reading a post where someone says that they are not trying to circumvent the system and then describes a situation where they circumvent the system. Nah, that makes no sense. I'm the DVC police.

If I was to join DVC all over again, I would have bought 501 points at AKV, split over several contracts, so that I could book week long stays in standard view grand villa at Kidani once a year.

Clearly we all pay through our maint fees for the soap, towels, everything. We know not to expect the daily service - knew that when we bought. We do bring extras - hangers is the one that we always run short on .
I see nothing wrong with this. You are doing more than most would to be courteous. If a mouse keeper gives you a towel, consider it a magical moment!

I think this is what Jim was alluding to when he said that he didn't drink and drive "in school zones". Because he is so courteous to not do so, should he be forgiven if he were to drink and drive outside of a school zone?

I agree that Daisyduck does go out of his way to keep costs down and be respectful in a number of areas, which is great and is to be commended. But I don't think it gives him an excuse to break other rules. I suppose if you want to do that then nobody is going to stop you, but don't expect people on here to give you a pass when you post about it, because for the most part it's not going to happen.

This is out of control. We have stayed at DVC 25 + times and maybe once or twice we casually asked if we could have an extra towel when were in a studio before we knew the rules. All we were trying to say in the original post was - we certainly had no clue we were breaking a rule or asking anyone on this forum to approve it -We simply were telling the poster on the thread how across the board when staying at DVC the cast members try to assist.

That's hilarious! Open forums certainly can be amusing.

All those "stop the housekeeper in the hallway" wind up adding extra costs for the members at that resort. If you need extra, call Housekeeping, ask for an extra towel pack and ask for it to be added to your bill.
Does it really cost the resort to give you an extra towel? So much so that the costs would be passed on to the members? I doubt it.

It's not out of control. What's out of control is your changing your story every time you get a little criticism. Just own it, apologize or ignore the comments, and move on. But don't defend it and don't change your story, because people aren't going to let that slide.

This is the same kind of thinking as "my vote doesn't count so I'm not going to vote" and it's flawed. Will one extra towel incur a measurable cost that will be passed onto the members? No, of course not, that is ridiculous. But if there are twenty or thirty people who do this during their stays each week, over the course of the year that is certainly a measurable cost.

Put another way, Yellowstone National Park has about three million visitors each year. If one visitor decides that they're going to drop their chewing gum wrapper on the ground, thinking that they were the only one doing it, I hardly think it would make a difference. But what if 10% of visitors thought this? Or 20%, or 50%? Now all of a sudden you're looking at hundreds of thousands of chewing gum wrappers messing up a national park.

Add to this the fact that the poster in question was trying to shirk responsibility for breaking the rules by pointing to the other rules that they do follow, and it's going to get a bad reaction. Every time.

You have a problem because you have made factually incorrect statements and people on here have corrected you. That doesn't make them financial advisers and it's really not fair for you to take shots at them (or "us" if you're including me in that group).

So to be clear, what you are saying is that providing additional goods and services that have both hard costs and labor costs attached to them will have no effect on maintenance fees? Then what does affect maintenance fees in your opinion?
