At any rate, lets just move on. It is closed, permanently. I certainly hope that those who enjoyed talking shop on their boats will find a lot of camaraderie here and value in this site as it will span many more sailors and opinions.

Really? Much more? What about:

Sailmail users?
Blackberry users?
Those with too many online logins and passwords to remember?
Those who can't stand the flashing adds?

What about all of them? I am/was subscribed to both Sailnet and Yahoo groups and I haven't had a problem with the Yahoo group at all. I liked sailnet's simplicity and plain text messages.

Don't you realize that especially in the small groups, sailnet has cut the only tie between a lot of people? A tie that many found useful?

I tend to disagree that the forums are going to fill the void. I always read the lists as they hit my inbox, but I rarely check the forums, and it's been that way for years with all of the lists I subscribe to.
