I'm sorry if this offends anyone, (I'm sure it will) but I'm at a total loss as to why so many people post how much time there is to go before their holiday. How does that post help anyone on this forum? Does it contribute any kind of travel information? No. Other posts, such as the bushfire tragedy get deleted, but one person after another posting a totally useless post about how any hours or days 'til they depart for Phuket remain on the board.
I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. Is it just a trend or is it actually important to someone?
