Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Bashing is a harsh, gratuitous, prejudicial attack on a person, group or subject. Literally, bashing is a term meaning to hit or assault, but when it is used as a suffix, or in conjunction with a noun indicating the subject being attacked, it is normally used to imply that the act is motivated by bigotry....

Dave, no one is bashing the Captain. When you say that there are people bashing the Captain you are insulting those persons. A person that bashes somebody in a gratuitous attack motivated by bigotry is an ugly and depictable person and I don't believe that apply to any of those involved in this discussion.

No one is moved by bigotry here.-PCP
Gee Wizz Paulo,

In your haste to jump on what I sayand to go after me please read the dictionary next time. NO ONE IMPLIED ANY BIGOTRY EXCEPT YOU. I certainly didnt

to attack physically or verbally
-Websters Dictionary

To criticize (another) harshly, accusatorially, and threateningly: "He bashed the . . . government unmercifully over the . . . spy affair" (Lally Weymouth).

I used the King's English here correctly my friend.

Captain Aaron,

There are many lessons I think which will come out. The one which is so apparent was the Captains setting sail into a storm. No one disagrees with his responsibility on here that I can see.
