Just got a bright red-lettered admonishment for attempted self-aggrandizement. Hmmm?? Nothing further from the truth, or the intent. I noticed a thread with a comment about charts, and their unavailability in 13X19 format from NOAA. Happens, that I am a Publishing Partner with NOAA, and know that there, in fact, are such charts readily available in exactly that size. My interest in SailNet, however, has nothing to do with "advertising" same, or any promotion whatsoever. I am a sailor first and last. Just clarifying some facts, and at the same time being totally forthcoming in my connections with NOAA. I attempted to put in the NOAA URL, but was denied that. At no moment did I try pushing our own commercial website, or even make mention. I did say charts are available from NOAA agents, and proceded to mention how an interested party could go find one -- if they happened onto me, that would be coincidental, or accidental, as I refrained from mentioning my name or our company name. Hard not to try offering some advice on how to find such charts when a thread says they can't be found. You might also note that I criticised the PocketCharts covering the Florida ICW -- not the tack you'd expect from a crass commercial sharpie like you are accusing me of being. I read and agreed to your terms covering that sort of thing, and would have refrained from such stinky behavior even if you had no such caveat. Perhaps you are used to some bad actors and blatant abusers, so I'll accept your overkill in this case. Try re-reading my comment and tell me where any sly marketing appears. Thanks for the great welcome.
