PapaBill, You may find it hard to believe, but I am actually a pretty nice guy. My comments tend to be direct and to the point which other people tend to interpret as personal, which they are not.
In the case of the messages from Bruce, on other topics, he certainly seems to have intimate knowledge of the costs associated with various aspects of cruising. If you had read these comments you would see why I asked these questions of him. As his message here certainly seems to indicate that he is one of the tipped workers on the ship.
So while you may think it was a personal attack, it was only a question.
