As I've often said here, Sailnet is like having a bunch of sailors hang out at your house without having to feed them. There are lots of opinions, good advice, bad advice, jokes, fun. Sailnet is kind of what you make it for yourself.

Absolutely! That's how you become familiar with everyone and everyone with you. Sometimes you have to have a thick skin, however, and not take things personally. Keep reminding yourself that no one here knows you so if you receive a negative response to something you write, it's a reaction to what you wrote, not to you (unless of course you come across as belligerent and a totally unsafe sailor, then all bets are off ).
