Who's rules yours or the forums. If it the forum rules I would really appreciate it if someone would point me in the right direction so I don't brake the rules. SD if they are your rules then you know where to put them. I am far from being a whiner. All you would have had to say is "Lostmt you would get better results by starting a new thread" and not by tell me or anyone else that they are trying to hijack a thread.

There are a pile of people that visit this forum that make no comments or ask question because of people just like you. You run them off you feel that this is your personal forum and people need your permission to ask questions.

Now that's about the funniest, two sided statement I've ever heard!

Lost,

Hello fellow Texan. You gotta ignore poor Ole SD. First, he is a Pat's fan (strike number one), and he is freezing his * off in New ENgland (strike #2). They just seem to get grumpy in January... however... wanna really get even with him?? Well, just remind him you are sailing in the middle of January!!!

Ok, on a serious side, I agree with SD that you will get better results starting your own thread. Most people don't read through pages of informatino (which is especially long and tenuous on the thread you posted on). It was a bit off topic... but you know what - it happens all the time!

However, I also agree with you that SD could have said it about 1000 different ways and make it come out nicer. Guess we will have to throw him in the dog house for that one.

So hang around. Always enjoy new members. Let's shake hands and start over...

Lost - I also hope you stick around. Variety is the spice of life! And, though I understand and can appreciate the intent of SD's comments, I've been using SailNet and other forums since '99 and I'm still not completely certain what constitutes hijacking a thread. I've seen dozens and dozens (and dozens!) of otherwise serious threads started on this forum as inquiries or comments, only to have the bulk of the responses be fun jabs and inside jokes between long time participants that have nothing to do with the original post. Is that a form of hijacking? If so, I don't mind all that much (as it is one way to get a better handle on some of the "personalities" here ). It can, however, be annoying to have to swim through a few pages of that to get back to the actual subject matter. Anyway, it's just my personal observation that sort of thing happens quite a bit here, and I just put up with it...

I don't mind a hi-jacking or two (g)...it is good however to check dates on a thread to avoid making us read old posts along with new ones...but a simple reminder to that effect usually is sufficient and newbies should be allowed some slack as they get used to the forum and the "rules"...most of which are unwritten. Welcome aboard Lostmt!...and I would go for the SanJuan! It is a real sail boat with racing class associations all over and lots of support. Here's a good link to start:

Thank you one an all. I am one of the major contributors on a web design forum so I know how hard it is to keep up on very large threads. We have at time wandered off the subject at hand. I do apologize.

Take care
David
