I can see how the posts from @Ctony & others discussing real, current wages in GoM can be beneficial to job seekers. Even the talk about which companies offer transportation is helpful. IMO, keep the thread open. Warn or suspend the poster blatantly violating forum guidelines.
I’ve lost any and all empathy because this forum has periodically been taken hostage as her soapbox for the last 5+ years. It’s the delivery, not the message. We also haven’t seen the proof behind the allegations.
She’s not the only female engineer to post here (and one of the others is IMO well respected for her on-topic opinions).
Many of us have tried showing empathy, only to be disparaged by her. Now every time anyone tries to have a discussion about working in the Gulf, or working as an Engineer, she spams each thread with regurgitated personal complaints. Every topic does not need be a Fu@K ECO thread.
Amira is likely the new identity of the troll. Now going on my ignore list.
. Reminds me of the character in the movie “Fatal Attraction” with the obsession with ECO. Claims to have stellar qualifications but can’t move on from ECO and find employment elsewhere. Why the fascination with one minor player in worldwide shipping? I am not even sure that the troll is female at this point.
Emrobu is another female engineer whose posts I enjoyed although we haven’t heard from her in a while. Something about your comments doesn’t add up. I have seen only positive comments about females onboard vessels on this forum. A person’s attitude goes a long way in determining their success in life.
I read all of Catherder posts. She sounds like a good engineer & awesome mariner period, male or female has nothing to do with it. I believe all of her sexual harrassment horror stories from when she was a female soldier & later as a female mariner, no questions asked. She said she had some really bad things done to her like tire slahing, unjustly passed over for promotions etc. & I believe her 100%. Oddly enough, from what I recall, cajaya was the only person to give catherder a hard time on this forum? I’m sure I could work with or for catherder with no problems. The other lady? YIKES. I would carry my cell phone in my breast pocket recording everything said 24/7. I would be a one hitch bitch & not come back until that lady was gone.
I never saw women or minorites have any issues when I worked at Chouest. My experience is a small sample size but many others her had similar experiences. It seems like Cajaya’s experience is an anomaly, not the norm. (Assuming her allegations are true at all.)
