We had some Guests recently who arrived in a hired camper truck ( with bicycles on the roof..)
When they left our city, they did so by long distance bus (for the next > 3000 km … at least !), carrying their bikes with them.
While they were with us, they spent a lot of time & energy planning their bus trip …( quite boring to us ..)
None of this was evident in their ( short) Profile, nor in their initial Request.
Now this couple have an excellent FB record, both as Guests but also as Hosts – they claimed to have Hosted many cyclists, which I believe. ( I find most FB nauseating to read…)
By coincidence, I have always thought it very important to provide FB to both Guests and Hosts, and I would like to “alert” future Hosts to this phenomenon – travelers WITH a bike, but not ON a bike.
I just can’t bring myself to “ neutral card” them, due to their good FB. If I did give them Neutral, it would be their first less-than-Positive FB.
BTW : I don't suspect any sc@mming intent in this case, it's more that I think they just don't understand how *special* is the WS ethos : that Hosts go out of their way for *bicycle travelers* , but not for people relying on motor transport.
But at least, I believe this background should be in their Profile ....
BTW : I am sure this has been discussed before, but how to find it in the massive rubble of this overly-complex website ?
