are you sure? when discussing sexism in sailing, some seem to think it is better at Sailing Anarchy or Cruisers Forum (no innuendo intended)

I actually like SA. I just don't post there as much because I don't want my kids seeing a lot of that stuff (I don't like to hide my forum addiction from them - and they like to see the dustups sometimes).

As for CF, I like A LOT of the people there. I just don't like the way it's run. It's pretty boring because of that.

I see Sailnet and YBW as much the same in tone. And I've posted quite a bit over at YBW. I just prefer this crowd.

Since I am a dinghy sailor, I am not so interested in a cruising forum.... though I read a lot of cruising books...

I looked at SA six months or so ago..can't remember why I never hung there much.... I really think SailNet has been the more friendly place to moor to (get it 'moor' I could have said 'raft to' but it wouldn't rhyme with bore...)

Re: Sailnet has new owners

I think I learn more at SA than I do here. There is a greater focus on the sailing side of sailing, and less on the cruising comforts.

The sexism was pretty off putting at first, but I realized it is mostly a way to keep the forums from being overrun with newbie questions (through intimidation). That is an admirable goal even if I don't agree with their methods.

I ran some high volume mailing lists on an entirely different subject in the past. It is a difficult job moderating in a way that keeps fresh and interesting content that keeps the long time list members around while being helpful for new members. I think SN does a pretty good job of that, thought we could do with a fewer number of "What 25' 40 year old sailboat should I buy for $1000 to sail to the Bahamas?" threads.

Like Smacky D, I have a forum addiction. I figure I have written a novel, one post at a time (sort of like using twitter to be Stephen King)

I never, ever enjoy bullying. There are many ways to stop people from asking stupid repetitive questions.

There is a baseball forum I used to be fairly active on, but I got tired of the same people being a jerk to all the new posters. About seven years after first reading and posting, there are the same 10 people posting... and about 1,000 posters who posted less than 60 posts and no longer come back.

Too many forums should be private yahoo groups --- making fun of others and bragging about how smart the 27 members are

I've never agreed with this mentality. Newbs should always be welcome to ask any question they want. If the "sailing aficionados" don't want to answer it - fine. Who cares? It's not that hard to move on.

We were all newbs at one point. And many of us, like me, still are.

So bring it on newbs!

Re: Sailnet has new owners

Ha, guess Smack Daddy and I think alike --- that only means more money for the psychologists.

One of the things I have always thought was odd about bullying on a forum, is not the jerks --- it is clear they have some kind of desire to up themselves at the expense of others,

But the fact that they friendly long timers never call those jerks out...

I have no problem calling out jerks. Of course, I can come off as a bit jerky when doing so. So it's a thin gray line. You really have to measure jerkiness over the long-haul. The nice thing is - jerks rarely win.
