GB, I second that emotion.

I went into the Forum Archives to resurrect this thread.
For a change, I wish to present a complaint.
Can we please refrain from having the bulletin board turning into another forum? The post about the Pilot overtime pay question has generated over a dozen responses. This is not in keeping with the intent of the bulletin board rules. If you wish to bark about something, bring it to the forum!

It has been going on two years ago since my last post on this thread and I my view below still holds true. I know some are working long hard days and others are not, which can be stressful for both parties but in different ways. CADO is not an accident but the dream of a man that has been backed up by years of hard work. I am certain Roy has not been bought nor will be bought by any man. I am reasonably sure that each view that has been moved from the Bulletin Board truly reflected the view at that moment of the ones that posted. Again I do not agree with everything said on CADO nor should I expect to but there is no question there could not be a better person deciding how CADO is to be managed than Roy Cupps.

Gale, your comments are very appropriate and fully comprehended.
The roman forum did indeed allow for discourse of a multitude of topics, as does this one.( I was not there, mind you, but feel like it was only yesterday).
We all should heed the advantages of the technology that is so prevalent in our current time and avail ourselves of it.
While there are those that would prevail upon this location as a catch-all of sorts, there are those of us that appreicate, support and give thanks to Roy Cupps, an outstanding member of our small community.
Thanks to all that support the site. Use it advantageously and assist those in need. As always "what goes around, comes around"

Most sites I visit do not come close to offering the features or resources that Roy provides on his site. Most forums on the web are little more than the Forum only is here. They do not need a Bulletin Board as the adjusting industry does. Many on this site personally know one another and attend events in common and look for jobs in the same area and at the same time. On other sites I visit you blow in and ask a question about a problem you are having with your car or what every and return later to see if you got lucky and found some real help. True sometimes you get no reply and you feel bad because you feel rejected, yes you know the feeling. Most people that hit forums do not reply to others because it takes time and specific knowledge they may not have.
Since many of us blow into the Bulletin Board first since it is on top I think is why we forget to check and use the Forum. The Last Day and Last Week feature is great compared to the old forum where you had to scroll and scroll to see if someone replied to something posted way back when. Now if you hit the site regularly you can see the subjects opened or replied to quickly at a glance. Learning anything different seems to create so much pain in we humans doesn’t it?
This is Roy’s site and where we help support the site with $60.00 or more each year or give nothing, Roy’s request should be honored because unless you are maintaining a site of this quality there is now way of knowing what he is giving the industry. If our website was 1/10 th of what www.catadjuster.org is I would be very proud of it. The first to requirements of a website like this is money and time. There are corporations that pay tens of thousands of dollars annually for their web sites, which pale in comparison to what Roy has produced.
More than once I have gone to get a phone number or web link in a post I had read only to realize it had been posted to the Bulletin Board and the info was gone forever. There are some ready good things that get posted that would be a shame to lose so quickly. If hot subjects get debated on the BB it discourages others from digging through what ever just to read the bulletins. It is not a sin or bad thing within itself for me to post a question or provoke a discussion on BB but I do not show respect for Roy’s wishes in the matter. The forum started as a place the guys came to chew the fat over a couple thousand years ago. With our technology today we do not have to get dressed up and hike down to the forum as they did in the good old days. What say ye?
