Deleting something that is not off topic, or offensive is rude regardless of what gender said it or where it was said. The post was informative and the person who deleted it was wrong to do so.
Had the person who deleted the post read it, he/she would have realized that the comment was a good one. That is why I agreed with the post, but I was also deleted.
Deleting the post based on the assumption that it was posted by a man and therefore inappropriate is clearly prejudice.

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217

Clarification: The moderator thought the herSailnet forum rules were "for women ONLY to post" and was enforcing the rules as he understood them at that time.

CLEARLY, just doing his job.

Got an uproar, asked for clarification, rule changed. DONE! Just doing his job.

I've posted there a couple of times. One was for womens opins on life jackets, I said what spouse and daughters thought of the ones they wear and why. The other was in response to a women that inherated a boat at my marina, had to say it looked very sad the day it came in, but now, WOW is a good way to put it!!

At this point in time, personally, I feel CD probably went a bit to far and quick at the deletions. Mrs Jimmy, probably should have signed it mrs Jimmy if she did not! The two have gone a bit overboard in there needs watns to quit! Both are right and wrong IMHO. Not that it matters.

If CD has teh ability, I know I do moderating another forum at least this large if not larger, over 200K reg names etc. I can delete, go back and see what was deleted, changed etc, even if by the OP, and C&P back to what was there etc if need be. CD should do this along with his apology that has been done.

To have it females only answering there, even for a question like this, what if the replyer had been an OBGYN or other equal medical field personell , but male? HIS answer would not have counted, yet he has as much or more knowlege on said subject than most of us.

As far as moderators go, I have no issues with either of the two, but do feel, if it would help them, like the other forum I do, splitting up the forums such that there is one or two mods per forum would help, and EA area has its own mods. with maybe CD and Cam if one will be the overall mods that have powers in ALL forums, the others, only in there area.

My opins for what how they count, now, lets get back to sailing etc.

I think the larger issue here is why is CD spending so much time in HerSailNet? I've reviewed the thread in question and he's gone so far as to post repeatedly and he's done it inside other people's threads. Talk about jumping to the front of the line...



I actually think the idea of a HerSailNet is a pretty good one and, while I can understand James/Kathy/Carrie's feelings, I would encourage them to consider how "Jimmy" posting in that thread might be a little bit confusing.

I once had a boss that said, "If you are not pissing someone off once in a while you are probably not doing your job!" CD and Cam, I am sorry to hear that you are getting crap off line and that people have a need to get in your face because you are doing your best at your job. Based on my old boss, I guess you are doing it well.

That being said, this is the INTERNET!. If they don't like how we play they need to pick up their marbels and go away. Don't sign on to the site. Delete it from your favorites. Whatever, nobody here will be calling to get you to re-subscribe. In most cases we don't know who you are anyway so we can't find you that easy. If you have shared your personal information it must have been for a reason, and in that case if you don't want the call...don't take it.

So, Jimmy seemed like a nice guy. Why yell out that you are going away? Why ask someone else to pick up your marbles for you? Go to your information and delete.

Bottom line, I think we need to go back to the first paragraph in the original post. Mission accomplished!


Oh, CD and Cam, you are doing a great job!!!!!!!!! If you were perfect they would have to pay you...which I think they should in some way find a way to do anyway!

After reading CD's post, and having been in a moderator's shoes, myself, I am not currently inclined to suffer fools.

I would respectfully suggest that perhaps on-line forums are not for her if one such incident, and such a minor one, at that, has gotten her that riled-up. You, or your wife, or the both of you are more than making a mountain out of mole hill. Y'all are making an entire mountain range out out of less than an ant hill.

Don't mean to add fuel to the fire, but that remark gives me the distinct impression it's more like she's big on attitude and just looking to exercise it.

Then perhaps y'all, as a family, should have chosen a screen name that was reflective of a multiple personality, rather than one that any reasonable person would reasonably assume was indicative of a male individual? (Btw: If your wife is so "big on equality," why didn't she make herself equal to you, Sailnet-presence-wise, by getting her own login and screen name?)

So... she thinks the Sailnet community or Sailnet's moderators think she's a "second class citizen"... because she's a woman?!?! Heh. "Attitude issues" confirmed, in my view.

It is unfortunate your enjoyment of Sailnet, and the knowledge, experience and wisdom that can be gleaned from its many, many generous and helpful participants will apparently now be lost to you, all because your wife has chosen to take umbrage over a trivial mistake that is at least 50% your (and by "your," I mean the both of you) fault. C'est la vie. *shrug*

Fair winds.
