Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Part of the beauty of Sailnet is the truth that emerges from a heated discussion. I see nothing wrong with zealous advocacy from different points of view. Truth comes out of conflict and controversy. No one should expect the polite conversation of a Victorian parlor conversation and no one is forcing anyone to participate. If you do not like a particular discussion, go to a different thread. Personally, I have learned quite a bit from this discussion and we may have actually saved some lives here.
The moderators do a good (and thankless) job of cutting people off when it gets too personal.
