As I understand it, they did a "fly-by" of this island every trip - although the company disavows it and claims that it's against their rules to go that close.

As I said, I haven't been following all that closely. Where's you read that?

I heard it on news reports. They would go close to the island and honk their horn to get crowds waving to each other. I'm sure it was entertaining for all. I mean, aside from the whole rolling over and drowning people part.

GO

I just googled and read that, too. I'll be changing my opinion now. Blush

But wait, why? I mean, guangzhou must be right, and I must be wrong. It's inconceivable that any corporation might be greedy, and cut corners in the name of convenience or profit, right? I mean, businesses are always factors for good in this world, aren't they?

GTongue

It's not that businesses always do well or what they are suppose too. I just don't believe every business is bad just because they want a profit.

I don't believe starting a business to make money is greed, regardless of how big the business get or gets.

Posters on this forum love to blame things on cooperate greed.

Redirection fail.

THIS business fucked up, and the people responsible should be held to account. YOU claimed that the people running the business should be let off the hook. Now it's up to YOU to justify that ludicrous position.

GO

I didn't claim the running the business should be let off the hook, I claim they are not the one responsible for what happened.

The people running the business should now be held responsible for the actions of their people for sure, that does fall well into the boards responsibility. Especially the financial responsibilities to clean this mess up.)

The captain and the crew are the ones responsible for the accident for sure in my book. The company is responsible for the captain and now needs to deal with the situation.

I wonder how many people were smart enough to realize it would take less time to swim to shore than to wait for a lifeboat?

Kinda like buzzing past the marina while your g/f flashes her ta-tas to the guys on the dock, huh?

But with higher consequences.
