I'll let you in on a secret about sailnet:
Racers bash cruisers.
Saltwater sailors bash freshwater sailors.
Conservative old salts bash brash overconfident novices.
Monohullers bash multihullers.
Bulb keelers bash old shoe cobblers.
and vice versa.

Don't think you are special because you feel persecuted. EVERYONE BASHES EVERYONE ELSE.

If you can, and will, defend yourself and your boat against the verbal bashing that comes your way, then you have a boat you love, and the confidence to sail her. If you feel you have to leave because your feelings are getting hurt, maybe the problem isn't everyone else...
