Still...they were lists of owners of specific model/make boatsas well as a few specialty topics (live-aboard etc.) that would post via email to the entire group for discussion and be notified when a new message or reply was posted. Sailnet ran the mail server to distribute these messages for a number of years and still keeps the archive of knowledge which you can view under the resources tab. No advertising...no non-group members. Such lists still exist on google and yahoo.
OK Cam, I got the message.

I was a member on the O'day list. It was why I got onto Sailnet. But they got rid of it and they are trying to get rid of me. Where are my friends in low places?

One would think that as sound business people Sailnet would want to get the facts out. Otherwise it's open speculation on what is going on, and the facts all of us can see or deduce indicate a company on the ropes, or at least trying to make itself look like a worthy place for some money from an investor. But as you say, it doesn't matter because nothing will change.

Fact: SailNet is actually usable now.

Don't you guys ever look on the bright side??
Hartley, since so few of you took advantage of the email lists, you don't know what Sailnet threw away to save the expense of a new server. The Pearson email list on here had over 300 members, and was the place to get info on our boats. How often did you see me tell someone in the Pearson forum to join the email list and ask their question there? For whatever reason, people on the email list had no use for the forums. Then Sailnet pulled the plug on all the email lists in the dark of the night without a word of warning or explanation. Sorry, I (and I Know most Pearsonites)look at this as a net loss for Sailnet utility, not a gain. What does faster mean if they sh*t-canned the reason you used Sailnet at all?

Mitch, you're quite right - I haven't been around here long enough to appreciate what was lost.

I fully understand if you'd don't agree, but with the vast amounts of spam these days (increasing by the day) may I suggest that email lists are probably a thing of the past and forums the way of the future.

Yeah, I understand that SailNet can be a pain over dial-up/slow connections and I only access it at work for that very reason - if you tried it a few months ago on this side of the globe you'd know what I mean!! - but there has been a huge improvement in speed since and we've been told that nothing from the old lists has been lost, so... is there any reason not to move with the times??

Nobody likes change... but that doesn't make it wrong.

Cameron
