Ok, the new video ads are annoying. It's not enjoyable having to click to stop them on each page load. Too much.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

Maybe the money the video ads generate will enable Sailnet to come up with workable Search function for both their store and the forums. Here is to hoping!

"I am a French Canadian glutton"

I have nothing against the French Canucks but I am also getting very tired of their video ad popping up every time my lazy mouse happens over their ad.
The ad also blocks a popular 'Quick Links' drop down button called 'todays posts' so it comes up every Gall Darn time I have tried to use it.
Please reign this over eating puppy in!
