Misunderstood?

Just got a bright red-lettered admonishment for attempted self-aggrandizement. Hmmm?? Nothing further from the truth, or the intent. I noticed a thread with a comment about charts, and their unavailability in 13X19 format from NOAA. Happens, that I am a Publishing Partner with NOAA, and know that there, in fact, are such charts readily available in exactly that size. My interest in SailNet, however, has nothing to do with "advertising" same, or any promotion whatsoever. I am a sailor first and last. Just clarifying some facts, and at the same time being totally forthcoming in my connections with NOAA. I attempted to put in the NOAA URL, but was denied that. At no moment did I try pushing our own commercial website, or even make mention. I did say charts are available from NOAA agents, and proceded to mention how an interested party could go find one -- if they happened onto me, that would be coincidental, or accidental, as I refrained from mentioning my name or our company name. Hard not to try offering some advice on how to find such charts when a thread says they can't be found. You might also note that I criticised the PocketCharts covering the Florida ICW -- not the tack you'd expect from a crass commercial sharpie like you are accusing me of being. I read and agreed to your terms covering that sort of thing, and would have refrained from such stinky behavior even if you had no such caveat. Perhaps you are used to some bad actors and blatant abusers, so I'll accept your overkill in this case. Try re-reading my comment and tell me where any sly marketing appears. Thanks for the great welcome.

Not sure what set you off, but I will PM you. I do not think any of the mods here jumped you, did they?

The issue we have had was primarily (primarily) brokers getting on here, bashing a boat/buyer, while trying to sell their own stuff. It was very backhanded and misdirecting. We also have had many manufacturers get on SN and start praising their product while pretending that they are nothing but the typical sailor.

I understand and read your previous post and have no issue with anything you wrote. Please understand that our only intention is watching out fot he members (all of them and that inculdes you). I would actually love to have someone like you on our forum. You can provide some great advice. All we ask is that in your signature or title, you list your profession so that you get the proper rep you deserve and that people know what you do fof a living and weigh your answers appropriately.

Sorry for any missunderstandings but I do not think it came from the leadership here.

I'm 100% corinthian but get very specially interested in the marine industry when I have to spend money on boat needs! Also, I volunteer to teach boating safety classes in my area and spend some time as a race officer.

WD Schock - representing the factory. Hope it is obvious by the screen name

Have Observed many questions about Santanas, Schocks, NY36, Lido 14, Wavelength 24 & 30, and our Harbor day sailors. We thought it might be sensible to help answer these questions.

Schock you should check the age of the threads, I know one you brought back to life that had been dead for 6 years.
