I come back from Florida, and this is what I find.
Now, I'm not defending the CMSL in any way, as I never defend any operation against anything unless the remark is terribly off base. I don't know what the story is down there on the Seashore Lines as of late, but I know I don't have anything to say about it. I do have an issue however, when information that should not be made public is posted to a public forum.
Joe, I'm sure you're angry beyond belief if what you say is true (for the legal purposes of those reading this, it may or may not be true). I would be too, if I was in your situation. However, posting this information to a public forum can negatively affect operations for a company in many ways. Until information concerning a lawsuit is publically released, such comments can be considered slanderous, just like information printed in a newspaper which in the future turns out to be untrue. Even after a pending lawsuit is publically released, comments like that can negatively affect the outcome of the case, and can hurt the credibility and reputation of both parties involved.
I am getting rid of a number of posts on this thread at this time, due to complaints. Please do not take removal of a post as a personal act, please look at it as a question of legality. Some facts which shall remain public are shown below:
1. The CMSL website is down effective 5/4/2006. It has been disabled by the webmaster, the reason for which is a dispute between the webmaster in question, and the Cape May Seashore Lines. No further information is available.
2. There is no hard evidence of any financial problems within the Cape May Seashore Lines company. No information has been publically released at this point concerning financial difficulties.
And last but not least, I encourage everyone here to post HARD, FACTUAL INFORMATION which can be backed up if questioned. Honestly, someone's word is not enough when it comes to the reputation of a company. If someone finds a newspaper article outlining a pending lawsuit against some railroad company, than that would be sufficient evidence to release such information here. Otherwise, anyone could come on here and claim that they're filing a lawsuit against anyone, true or not. I'm looking to maintain an air of truthfullness and reliable information on this forum, not a sea of rumors and here-says...
And that's all I've got to say about that.
