If you've already read every post on sailnet and are so knowledgable that you aren't interested in new members comments, then maybe it's time you found something else to do with your leisure time. Offended by my response to your whine? Now you know how the "noobs" feel.
Hey there, we all know that SD is a tad rabid but you should be kind to an old dog, sea kindly or not. I'm sure his barque is worse than his byte.

Perhaps this has something to do with poster not selecting HTML or WYSIWYG. Just a possibility, I am not wise in the ways of puter speak so tis not beyond the powers of probability that I'm wrong.

OK, maybe it was a bit over the top, but nothing pisses me off like the arrogance of old men. (My own excepted.

Well SD is always in conflict with Surfesq so he can't be all bad and what's more he has cast doubts on my mental stability so that's another tick in his favour.

Yabbut he's only been a member since March and already has over 3300 posts. I can't imagine how every one of those isn't scintillating conversation. Oh, wait, I've read the Fight Club thread - yes, I can. Sounds like a bad case of desperately needs to get a life.

yarbut yarbut yarbut indeed.....well you might just have a point there now that I come to think about it. Good show Little Britain. You ever see the Fast Show ? The buggers can't bat, nor can they bowl and their fielding is a tad dodgey as well but oh boy they do comedy in champion style. where we would be without British comedy I hate to think.

Cheers

Andrew

ps - Sorry SD , this is all at your expense, no harm in ten did.

Morganmike must consider himself a noobie... My point was that in many cases the old threads are being brought back to life for little or no reason. I wouldn't consider myself old... considering that I'm not even forty yet... but as one captain I know says, "I know I'm still young...I plan to die young, and I ain't dead yet."

TDW- No worries...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey Mike,
Stick around, things generally cool off. The only old posts that get members jacked up are the ones where a new member is answering a question that was asked a long time ago, usually of the genre "are those life-jackets still on sale at west marine?" or some other time-sensitive topic. You'll notice that some of the older threads, concerning on-going issues, do not elicit the same criticism. In fact, I think the buying a boat forum should have a note at the top stating that one should peruse the 3 million threads on buying a starter boat before asking the same question! Some members are more polite than others, some have no sense of humor at all, and some just use the site to keep their keyboards limber because they already know everything. Regardless, politeness counts and bare-knuckled brawling seems to find it's way to fight club where primal screams seem well, ordinary. It ain't perfect but it seems to be run by some decent blokes and 'most' of the posters are good shipmates.
