Jeff, seriously, you think it's ok for someone in our age group (over 40) to denigrate the younger generation without any empirical evidence while I stated clearly that my experience was based only on local observation? Or was it the fact that I mentioned SN posters' large degree of ongoing geographic and experiential myopia? If it's that latter, then please, I'd be honored to be permanently banned from Sailnet or if you prefer, just pull a 'chef' and bow out.

I've worked with and taught a lot of young people over the years in many capacities. In the end, my experiences have overwhelmingly been positive. I'll take my own experience over those who clearly have spent little or no time with generations other than their own. Acerbic? Sometimes. BS is BS and should be called such.
