SD, i heard the inside scoop is CD is pushing to get the name changed to BBQnet now that Cam is out.

Thank You Cam
While there are many wonderful things about our country, SD is right, our legal system has its flaws. With the current ease of frivolous lawsuits and journalistic prying into every aspect of a persons life we find ourselves with fewer and fewer quality people willing to step forward int the public eye to lead. How many time have you had to vote against someone rather than for someone?
Thanks again Cam for you past service to the sailing community.

Dan

This is a good thing for the firstmate and I, as now our list of potential dreamboats just got narrowed down.
I meant that if Cam hadn't posted it as moderator, someone else probably would have. And because he did, that became the thread rather than someone else starting one. Also, the Tartan situation actually had gotten some attention on other boards and I think in a rag as well.

Anyway, that was a very small point. My bigger point was that I would rather have Cam at the helm than be rail meat with the rest of us. But, of course he's entitled to be spelled every now and again too.

The world becomes a more interesting place when you're bored... since you tend to solve the boredom problem rather creatively, much to the dismay of your target.

Its Sunday morning here, and well, this just plain pizzes me off.
I understand the legal aspects all too well. I also understand your decision.

I'm going to have a couple of cups of coffee and reflect for a minute...
Then, probably add a page or two to my lil spot on the 'net... re: all the public info, and let them come after me. The Cuban says I need a hobby, and I'm bored.

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.

I applaud your honesty and integrity. novis/tartan AND Sailnet could benfit from assuming the same high standards. It maddens me to see "free speech" trampled under the weight of threatened lawsuits, ESPECIALLY when it is truthful/objective. Sad to see it happen, but very glad that you will be staying on.
Honor and Dignity.... many could learn from your example!

You deserve a big “THANK YOU” from all here. Yes you have deleted, edited and admonished some of my posts, but I will miss your moderation. I take my hat off to you for standing by your principals. I for one look forward to your future posts, as you can now come out and play without your moderators responsibilities. Welcome back into the trench.

Cam,

I understand the reasons for your decision but also understand Sailnets desire to avoid defending a lawsuit in these trying times. It costs money, even if you are in the right, and for most all of us, money is in short supply these days.

I want to thank you for contributing your time and expertise to help educate your fellow sailors, be they neophytes like myself, or experienced world cruisers. You were willing and able to help regardless of the persons experience level and always gave useful advice. I know I personally benefitted from your advice, and want to again thank you for that.

I hope you will continue to be a regular contributor here, the forum will be greatly diminshed without you.

You a a true man of principal and true to your principals and I admire that. I support your reasoms for resigning and protest Sailnets decision to "knunkle under" to the strongarm threats.

One only has their reputation in life and no matter how you cut it the stance to give in on the principal of freedom of speech on the website to protect Tartans commercial interests is tantamount to agreeing with them.

This is a sad day for the site as it means that all threads in regards to products should be held suspect. Be carefull what you all post no because if they have the reasources and do not like what you have written, they may threaten to sue and your comments will be now "edited" off the forum.

I assume this is the principal you are protecting and I applaud you. You are a gentleman with honor.

Dave
