Seasons’s Greetings

merrychristmasDear BU family, Commenters all

BU apologizes for the disruption caused to our readers and contributors over the last 48 hours. Site traffic drops below average during the holiday period and the BU household belatedly grabbed the opportunity to transfer the blog (BU) from bajan.wordpress.com to barbadosunderground.wordpress.com.  Due to the large size of our blog the operation took longer than anticipated. A few comments were dropped as a result of the migration.

We made the decision to change the URL for easier access. Again, thanks for your patience.  Wishing you and yours the best for the holidays.

    It is probably not my place to express this sentiment but I am going to do it, irrespective of your affront. Because, I have had the instinctive urge to express what I believe to be an objective observation of your recent action: now I would have thought that you would have made it quite clear from the get go, that violators of the BU prescribed criteria for intellectual honesty, would have been vehemently censored? Now, I only hope that I’m not insulting your intelligence by expressing the view: that your recent action looks more like a prime example of putting the cart before the horse or burning the candle at both ends. Your established criteria for determining what is acceptable or unacceptable ought to have been in operation prior to the readership expressed opinions. Unless, we are to equate your recent action to an enable to estimate the readership unmitigated gall to push the envelope beyond the frontier of constitutional protection.

    What’s wrong with immigrating to another country, if it improves one’s standard of living and enhances one’s intellectual outlook on life? It seems as though our small island people lack the necessary expansive outlook of life? Our infinitesimal world seems too evolved around our Lilliputian rock of an island.

    Sir, try not to misconstrued what I am endeavoring to convey here, with respect to your above comment. I believe and I am quite sure others here would agree we me wholeheartedly, that Barbados have much too often in the way of hospitality, but little in the way of intellectual enlightenment. We ought to test the Theory with espoused this notion that Barbadians are among the world literate people. I am not convinced and perhaps I am missing something here, so feel free to enlighten me.
