In the spirit of the wonderful city of New Orleans lets try to keep this forum as positive as possible.
Please keep in mind that many who asked if they could still take their vacation did this 2 days ago when it was thought that the french quarter was not flooded and not knowing all we know now. At this point I'm sure everyone knows of the devastion that has occured. Replying to their post that they will not be able to take their vacation and recounting the devestation will not help the situation. Should a new post appear please be civil when explaining the situation and encourage the poster to donate to help out.
Those who want to support the city in tourism when the city recovers are not discounting what has happened. This is out of support whether it be 6 months from now or 6 years from now when it happens.
Please refrain from posting negative comments about the city.
If this is not your vacation destination of choice that is fine but please keep that to yourself at this time, focus on what makes you happy rather than posting negativity.
Lets keep politics out of here. Everyone has a different opinion
and believes they are right. This is a travel forum not political.
This can lead to more disagreements. Lets agree to help each other and New Orleans
Please lets all keep in mind the tragedy that has happened and be sensitive to this before we post
for more information about the city and what's going on this is a good source:
Thank you for all the wonderful posters who are showing their love and support for NOLA right now. there are many of you!
