Re: Are we elitists?

I came over from another sailing forum last year? That forum seemed to have some people at the helm who had exceedingly high opinions of themselves. This forum seems to have a lot of people who are not even very rude and obnoxious on the off-topic threads. There are many very knowledgeable people here who are willing to share knowledge and experience. The site is a gold mine of information for newbies and experienced sailors alike. If someone didn't get a Koombaya feeling and hearty welcome, well maybe they were expecting something that this place is not.
