    LaughingPlace.com

    On the forums of the site, I've read a ton of scathing posts criticizing Lou Mongello. Even though I can see where Lou can get a bit annoying at times, their criticisms have been way too harsh and I'm interested in finding out what he has to say about those critics.

    I have read those posts myself and it's just people offering their opinions. I'm not saying I'm agreeing with them but when you became a public figure as Lou has, criticism is part of the deal.

    Yeah, unfortunately, if you're in the public eye in anyway, big or small, you are always going to come across your fair share of critics. The important thing is that Lou also has a massive fan following - he must be doing something right, or his podcast/magazine/audio guides/books/etc wouldn't be as successful as they are.

    Re: LaughingPlace.com

    Frankly, our Lou is a very well educated gentleman. And he is a gentleman with class. People that lack class toss insults around
    and those with class take the high road and ignore the petty.

    I would be very surprised if Lou ever involved himself in that type of banter. He just moves forward.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Never been to LaughingPlace.com... and after reading your post, I don't think I'll be heading over there either. Thanks for the heads up.

    Re: LaughingPlace.com

    I'd like some of you to PM me as I don't think the full story has been given. Or I could just say it. Let me know what works.

    Forget it I'll say it. While there has been criticism of Lou some of which I don't agree with it does not reflect everyone who posts on the site overall. I post both here and over there as DDMAN26. The posters at LP for the most part are a warm and friendly group, sure there are disagreements. There's a nearly 500 post topic on how the Dwarf Coaster is a downgrade. I've stated in the post that people should take a wait and see approach. A few others have said that they've liked it also. It's been a friendly discussion. There have been other posts about the new thing Disney has been doing in the MK the sleuthing thing? Again for the most part it's been a friendly discussion. And also a post about Kevin Yee who I honestly never heard of before the topic. Well it was in this topic and a few others that Phillip has come in to purposely insult certain posters even telling them to go to a warm place, and no I don't mean central Florida either.

    Also like Lou, the owner's of Laughing Place, Doobie and Rebekah Mosley run one of the best Disney sites on the web.

    As the late Paul Harvey would say and now you know the rest of the story....good day.

    Re: LaughingPlace.com

    Honestly, I can't believe that anyone would post such terrible remarks. One of the reasons I like wdwradio.com is because the members do not post negative remarks about WDW or DL or anything Disney. I believe everyone has their own opinion and I'm fine with that, but I don't agree with negative remarks. It really does nothing for you or anyone else . . . so why be negative.

    That's my two cents.

    Well it turns out the Phillips responses in the one topic have received red administration pen.

    Naw, people post some negative stuff here, as well they should (like the person who recently started a thread about how they don't like mission space). People are allowed to not like certain parts of Disney and to discuss those things and share their opinion. The difference is the lack of personal attacks... and yes, in general it is a lot more positive over here
