As for the skipper being god, well there you have it. My boat, my rules. If you don't like them, stay ashore or stfu and sail the boat. I'll ask for opinions, but there's only one vote.
Btw, I've said all along that everybody but the old lady had a part in this mess.
Okay. That sounds more reasonable. RDawg did indeed, according to the Day 7 story, "explode", "stop working" and "refuse to apologize for raising hell". That can definitely be seen as escalating the conflict. I'll grant you that. My point was that it doesn't
indicate "a willingness to physically assault"
the guy. Very, very different (and important) bag of clams.
As for you being god on your boat and there being only one vote - no argument here. That's the way it should be.
