I don't know what the FightClub is and I suspect I don't care.

I'm rapidly losing interest in this discussion as clearly there are camps that are not interested in each others view points but only in espousing their own.

I'm content with the SN solution. I'd be thrilled with the deletion of all the off-topic muck but one can't have everything. *grin*

Auspicious out.

Re: Edit Post Button Gone....?

I'm really starting to feel like a second class citizen. I get the feeling that I'm somehow a little sleazy to actually enjoy debating things that don't directly have to do with sailing.
I'm sorry, but there is more to life than boats people.
I make my living from boats and sometimes I like to talk and think about other stuff with my friends. Is that so weird?

I am not looking for a general purpose community in SailNet. Apparently you are. It would be interesting to know which of us represents the greater part of active SailNet members.
I agree Dave. Perhaps someone could do a poll.
I will agree here and now to take my low life sewer posting elsewhere if the majority chooses.

SailNet is my primary hangout on the net. I visit and enjoy a few others for various reasons, but SailNet is my mainstay. I look at new posts, and if there is some sailing related topic that I can contribute to. I do. Then I check out any off topic thread that catches my interest.

Do most people have a different message board that they frequent for every different interest they have?

Certainly some of the off topic threads degenerate into childish name calling and pedantic one upmanship. But sometimes good information is shared and sometimes those with an open mind actually learn important things.

I also think it's a little unfair to say that all the childish arguing takes place in off topic. I can distinctly remember quite a number of threads in general discussion that were as bad or worse than the average political discussion in off topic.

Lovely on a computer, but not always available on tablets and smartphones.
If you've never been in off-topic, and you are so uninterested..how do you know who the folks are who are allegedly dragging the muck into the pristine forums?

I bet you only read Playboy for the articles, too, huh?

Then you're missing some great jokes, and some pretty cool advertising.

I think you've summed it up nicely.

You liar! Even my grandmother looked at the girls (muttering "dizgoosting, dizgoosting" all the while).

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

For those who attempt to "cover their tracks" in an attempt to rewrite history to their advantage, the moderators will have the ability to revoke your editing privileges by moving you to a new group that has no editing privileges.

We think this is extremely fair to everyone.
Outstanding response.
