I've had the good fortune to have met Alex. He is as intelligent a man as I have ever met, as is his wife. That Fred is an outstanding young man is beyond doubt. Having Alex gone will be a big loss for these forums.

He's just taking a cigarette break, for crying out loud. He'll be back.

Nobody noticed that Alex dropped out shortly after Giuletta started posting. Maybe he can't stand the competition? Perhaps she started reading his missives and sent him off to his room for a time out? Whatever it is, I think the two are connected and he's using these concocted stories of PM's & e-mails & neg rep as a cover. Those Euros are tricky that way

minggat is on a distinguished road
You mean that post like "am I too fat to go up my mast" were not well thought out?

(I did a search for that post and can't find it. I'm thinking if was deemed ... duh)

I came aboard sailnet about 8 years ago. You don't hear from me very often. Lately I've been putting my 2 cents worth in a little more and enjoying it less.

Before I dropped the dock lines and set sail, I was occassionally approached with DUH questions from neighbors in my marina. Some were just annoying because I knew that the individuals asking just gave a lot more focus to where their next drink was coming from. Others were just starting their boating experience and reminded me of when I was a new owner. But shortly before I set out, I just found myself avoiding more and more people who either had stupid questions or stupid suggestions.

It ain'd easy being me. I have to work on not turning into Bart Simpsons grumpy granpa.

BTW- The name "Minggat" is Javanese. One of my little brown Indonesian wifes native languages. Spoken with the right voice influction, it translates into.. "Go to Hell". We get to chuckel when we get hailed on the VHF. Callers are saying "go to hell, go to hell go to hell- this is ___".

I win
