Wow, go away for a week in sunny Mexico and the world is split asunder.

Hey Management!

What's next one wonders??

Will Jeff H be forced to only submit positive reviews of the boats he discusses? After all he's a moderator as well as Cam.

Will SailingDog only be allowed to post positive reviews of equipment he has direct experience using?

Will I be reprimanded for being so frigging realistic and anti-hybrid when the makers of these products come whining to you?

Will West Marine demand a complete retraction or deletion of the thread that clearly shows they have defective products at prices that are higher than any competitor?

Shame on Sailnet. Ban me before I ban myself you gutless wonders.

Good luck finding another moderator you frigging idiots.

This forum just died.

Sorry to hear about your decision Cam, but I can understand how you feel. It's getting harder to find decent sailing forums, there's lots of them but most don't have much activity.

Actually this made my day. Motivated me to join up and post. Good to see you gone.As a moderator you were biased and condescending. Also, I see you are still posting incorrect information. Hope they delete this thread too.

Care to post any "correct information" that contradicts him?

y111x = another one of those 'Novis' sock puppets with an IP address in Ohio and only 1 vitriolic post. Hmmm.
Hope you get deleted/banned Buddy boy.

Like a lot of threads on a BBS, this thread is taking a life of its own!

Gearge,

Sorry to see you stop moderating. Enjoy life when it comes on the road! moding is phun, but not so phun at the same time. One needs to drive along a fine line. SOmetimes one goes over, sometimes one goes the other way!

Cam,

I do not use this forum very much, probably because I'm too busy sailing. However, one of the things I have enjoyed here is your intelligent and even-handed input as a moderator and as a contributor. I thank you.

Integrity is seemingly a scarcer commodity these days, and I admire your decision to resign. I hope that we can all continue to enjoy your wisdom and clarity here. Let's not allow the Tartan/C&C/Novis/Jackett fiasco fade from our screens.

Cheers,
Michael

As usual I'm coming on late to a thread.

This really really really sucks! I hope this isn't the beginning of the end. I have met a lot of friends at SN. It's my favorite place to hang out.

Cam . . . . . . . you are a good egg! I can't think of anything to say that hasn't already been said. I appreciate you! Please stay active in the forum.

George;

I knew this was might be coming but I really hate that it came to this. I really hate to see you hang up your badge and guns. You did a lot of the heavy lifting around here. Hopefully, this will sort out in a way that entices you strap on those side arms and head out with CD and I to face down the next Miller Gang.

Hey look peoples....Cam was one of the good guys. Ok so we are diametrically opposed on most things political but when it came to discussing anything to do with sailing he was always free and open with his thoughts. (Hell, that sounds like a bloody eulogy....) Me, I admire him for taking a stand on an issue he believed in.

Anyway, whatever......I don't think this place is about to go belly up , we have these kind of upsets all the time, but if , and I do say IF we are the lifeblood of the place then management does need to listen occasionally and maybe even provide us with a bit of feedback.

Hopefully this will pass, like a fart in the wind, but it does worry me that yesterday I went back onto Cruiser Forum for the first time in over a year.

Look what you have made me go and do Cam....you should be ashamed of yourself....
