Attitude is the difference...
 
Ever notice how some people that come to Sailnet respond very differently from others...

For instance... Bernie K's response in this chartering thread was:

Appreciate the warning on Willy T.

Again, thanks for your replies!

While over on the cruising forum, you have Dogsailors, with these two responses:

I was not asking for opinions but simply wanted to know if anyone has cruised with these near genuis dogs. Obviously no one on this site is acctually out cruising so I will have to see for my self. Good luck arm chair sailors have fun talking sh*t while Im out sailing.

Both people were asking questions, and getting good, critical, and useful feedback IMHO—yet their responses are totally different. It seems that some of the newbies on sailnet want to only have their beliefs and ideas justified, rather than a wholehearted, honest, if somewhat humorous, discussion of the topic.

Do you think newbies, like Dogsailors and Horseatingweeds, are being too sensitive, or do they need to take chill pill and learn to deal?

Also, if you were out on the water...which would you want to be sailing near? If you had to crew for one...who would you rather crew for? If you had to have one as crew in an emergency, who would you want on your boat?

Could you be more specific as to their range and maybe closing speed???

That woman drives a Volvo station wagon. I know she drives one. And you know she does.
Valiente deserves the Sailnet Cross, with Oak Leaf clusters.

Question: How long would she last with the Portagee?

You're right between the hawse pipes Dog. Peoples personalities don't take too long to reveal themselves. In my experience, people with the latter's personality usually lock themselves in their room alone after their watch. Just as well, it wouldn't hardly be prudent to take a walk on deck in the dark.

I thnk you've insulted Volvo drivers as a whole. :D Even I wouldn't inflict her on Giu... he hasn't done that much wrong.

do not confuse people with the facts, it really messes with their reality.

sailaway21 03-05-2007 09:32 PM

Heard a good one yesterday: Feelings aren't facts.
