Ya might as well git rid of them

I think I have given the Dog all the negative points that one is allowed. It sez I gotta spread some points around.
Wish I didn't have a boat so I could sit around and post on Sailnet all day or play with Photoshop

ARRRRRRRRRR!!****

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.

Seems as if the points are popularity vote counters, and not so much as to whether the person receiving them knows what he/she is doing or not.
Still could be fun to play with when you are really bored.

I say Positive reps only, if you have a problem with the poster put it in writing and don’t hide behind the anonymity.

There's the clinching argument! It's effin cold out there and TB's joined the ranks of the boat-less (sorry to bring it up TB), can it get any worse?! We need these pissing contests inspired by an otherwise useless part of the website. I hope not to get neg-rep'ed ( ), but those who whine about getting neg-rep'ed need to relax and realize that they are just 'taking one for the team', so to speak, so we can all survive the long dark winter until we can send this weather back 'down' to the Wombat, Simon, Sasha, et al.

I've been reading posts on this site for some time now, but only joined this month. It did not take me long to figure out who knew what they were talking about. So for me the rep points are a waste. I do not pay any attention to them.
I feel that if you have something to say, say it out in the open, where people can respond.

Boat is still titled to me . . . but not for long I'm afraid. Not to worry though Rev, control central is working on the boatless problem at this very moment - just might have a worthwhile solution before summer.

"That's not the boat you're looking for" (sorry 'dog)
