Because if it's a philosophical thread, it shouldn't degenerate into that; the point to philosophy is enquiry, not scoring points. and there are moderators out there earning big bucks for the privilege of keeping the kids from throwing sand in each other's faces.

and as for the assertion it has no place in this site, the problem is every assertion is philosophical in nature, including the points raised here; what i'm suggestion is some thought about what lies behind our assumptions that we constantly make when we say something at sailnet.

there's already a lot of cheese and sandbox antics, as long as it's on topic, what could it hurt? and it would be important to stay on topic; there's a wealth of stuff in regards to sailing that could b be dug into. but if there really isn't the interest i won't be babbling to myself
