Re: I'm Done

Here's the thing : this forum might not be perfect, but it is very good - one of the best I've seen. I've had many excellent quality discussions - and on the rare occasions when someone has been less than helpful, or has been rude - hey, I can take it. Sometimes I have been known to get out of bed on the wrong side in the morning.

If you don't like the responses : CONTRIBUTE. I know numerous people around the marina who regularly check in on this forum, but never contribute anything. Which is a shame. Or maybe they have busier jobs than us? (joke)

Spending some time on other internet forums is constructive to form a contrast. Just try and get a word of sense out of any of the Land Rover Discovery fora out there.

Re: I'm Done

This is a great forum.

I participate in discussions with posters who routinely post ******sh posts but who sometimes post great posts...and I am almost certain they feel the same way about my posts. I try not to let the posting influence what I think about basic personalities of the posters but in a couple of cases - overwhelmed by the glaring a**hattery - I been unable to keep my own jacka**ery in check.

Fuzzy has on a couple of occasions intervened and chided me. My discussions with him in the "back room" have in the main been civil even though he is a bit wombatish...but we all know he can't help that.

The amusement I get out of this forum in the OT/PRWG room is well worth the price. The nuggets I get about maintenance and sailing in the anteroom and parlor have saved me untold skinned knuckles/cash/time/frustration.

Thanks to all who participate.

Re: I'm Done

The wealth of information I've received on this forum has been invaluable. Well worth the price of admission. I've learned more about boat systems, design, maintenance, tactics etc in the 7 years I've been hanging around here than I thought possible. I definitely take more away that I am able to contribute. I've been encouraged to undertake projects I would have never considered attempting and the people like Mainsail et al that post step by step instructions and tutorials are incredible resources. Hell, you can even get recipes from all over the world here. What's not to like.

My personal fav are those that write a big door slamming FU and then don't actually leave. Seen a few of those too.

Maybe they stay to torment you since it obviously bothers you enough to post about it.
