Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Well, it was fun for a while but it's wearing pretty thin of late.
In our opinion, this thread, which is certainly no longer representative of its title, has run its course. We have received a number of PMs over the past little while with requests to close, rename, remove, or otherwise attempt to 'fix' it - which would be an impossible task, really.
To their credit, none of these complaints came from any of the combatants despite the number of posts here that, strictly speaking, would/could/should have been considered against the site rules re: personal attacks and name-calling - which is probably the main reason it has been allowed to continue so long..
In any event, it's time to put a lock on this and move on.
