I thought I was the only one. I wrote to him twice to his email address and posted a reply to the thread his replied, I did not get a single acknowledgment. I assume that he must get a thousand bites and too busy to reply back.
This is the internet age, no reply means not interested. It is considered normal and proper now. No hard feeling and just move on. But I would never treat other sailors like this way tho. If the emails are overwhelming, One will just post a general reply on the thread stating the fact.
We breath in oxygen, but breath out many different breaths. Some smell better than other. Life goes on.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
