This thread has runs its course for me unless someone new from the boat comes forth.
Please please please please PROMISE US this is true.
The rest of SailNet is trying to LEARN something from this thread, not just judge, and then try and act as executioner. Personally I think you're in violation of SailNet's terms and conditions by threatening to keep RockDog from crewing in the future. Threats of any harm in the real world are a no-no that you (and the rest of us) agreed to. I'm no mod though, so call it a friendly warning from a peer.
I also find it exceedingly ugly that you keep referring to a civil charge against the OP. That has NOTHING to do with you, or the issues in this thread. How would you like it if I looked up your criminal record, credit report, or other REAL PERSONAL INFO for example, and put it up here on SailNet?
Let's keep reality and SailNet separate. I know it can be hard....
Im sorry you don't like my tone, but like the Captain this is the real world...
Also, Chef, what is it like to NEVER be wrong? It must feel divine, almost biblical. Being schooled in science, I always harbor doubt, and even more so when EVERYONE tells me I'm wrong. I'd love to get over that, I think it would lead to a much healthier ego for myself.
