Too funny that it turned out to be a Sailnetter.

One popular theory was that it was someone with an obsession with one specific Fortune 30 that the owner wouldn't sell to them.

Another was that it was the owner of the cheaply listed Fortune 30 ad that was endlessly reposted around the same time, trying to increase the attention of his boat for people looking to buy, when he wasn't adding interesting and strange commentary to his ad.

EDIT: By few of us, I mean on Granville island, not on Sailnet
Renewing ads every week or two is spamming?

Anyway - it sure worked.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
