Hopefully, this new group can answer the three most pressing questions:

1. What's the weather like in (fill in the blank)?
2. I have reservations for July, will I be able to go?
3. What is the best restaurant?

Many many years ago, in the early years of this bb the most asked question was: Where is the best place to stay so my wife can go topless.

What is always so intriguing is that all of us experts who never visit all those Aruba social media sites because we know everything!
So, why don't all those people with all those dumb, repetitive questions just do what all of us experts did? We just went there and winged it. We didn't have all those F/B groups back then. We had nothing. So, let them do it the hard way. Like we did, right?
Next time you see some poor slob asking some dumb 'palapa' question or 'what's a good restaurant', or 'what's a good car rental', trying to learn a thing or two about his upcoming first trip to Aruba just tell him to figure it out himself, right?
Yeah! We'll show them!

leftyjy, you signed off a few months ago saying you were done with this bb never to return.

Appears you are not a person of your word.

Now that you know there are 95 FB Aruba related sites why not focus on them.

Personally I will miss you but the 95 other sites need you upbeat glass half full approach to life and Aruba.

Lets not stay in touch.

Too bad!

Follow your own advice.

Hi, Leftyjy. I felt that the comments about the over-asked questions were all in jest, but if you want a serious answer, I would say that it _would_ be better if users could learn how to look for previous answers, or in a "frequently asked questions" section. Taken to the extreme, every other person asking the same 2 or 3 questions - while helpful for those specific people asking them - certainly wouldn't prove enjoyable for anyone else.
