WARNING!!!!!

It''s no wonder, when I see as much advice to just "roll with the punches" as this thread generated, that cruisers continue to be victimized by locals the world over. When people treat you badly, it''s only natural to complain. MORE natural than victimizing those who have done you no harm, regardless of how much wealthier and able to "afford to pay" you may percieve them to be. Perhaps if more than just the occasional victim were to complain vociferously to the authorities, things just MIGHT change... but as long as we castigate those who report these abuses to our community, they won''t.

Fire at will.
Henry.
