Cap'n Bill...
If the site was ranked #1 in traffic it would be at the top. If it was ranked #100,000 it would be at the bottom. So Sailnet is lower ranked at around 100,000 than Anarchy at around 60,000 under THIS particular measure.
There are lots of other measures however such as time spent on site, frequency of visits, unique visitors etc.. As far as advertisers are concerned...click throughs on ads may be quite important...fo Sailnet...click throughs and buying by members at their store may be of even more importance.
In my view Anarchy has really no place for cruising sailors or casual weekend sailors despite a section called cruising anarchy...you can't really get much good advice on those issues there.
Nor can you get much traction on racing topics here. Aside from the differences in "style" and "moderation"... the two sites are like apples and oranges to me which is another reason why I felt the side swipe by their editor gratuitous.

So right Mr. Cry.

I will cease and desist immediately. I will direct all further sheep comments where they rightly belong.

I took the bait and followed your link...ROFLMAO thanks to you.

Just to be clear, animal comments don't offend me, just trying to be considerate of others during the holidays. Can't hardly wait until after the 1st.

Sailnet has fallen a long way. It was the first forum, and once upon a time, the biggest, most vibrant sailing community on the web. The owners of the site then gave up on getting original content, and this allowed competitors and technology to pass them by. SA continues to grow every month, and the Alexa numbers mean that it is now an order of magnitude more popular than Sailnet, and has more information therein than Sailnet ever will. That may not be important to you - but since SA spends a lot of money developing its site, sponsoring events and campaigns, and getting good content, it's important to them, and it has helped SA to be so valuable to so many people.

Hey Sennali...the original owners of Sailnet went bankrupt and the site fell to nothing for several years. For the last 2 or 3 it has been either growing or stable and is a fine home for many of us even when we also enjoy other sites.
SA should be proud of its growth and fan base...and it probably will continue to grow. Just misses the mark for cruising sailors in my opinion.
Your comment about more information on SA is wildly off base when it comes to cruising issues. That is like saying the Encyclopedia Brittanica has more information than the Physician's Desk Reference. Which one you gonna pick up when you want to know what dose of Lipitor to give?
That is NOT to say that SA doesn't have good info...it has good info about stuff I am not interested in mostly. If I were interested in the racing world or how two race boats compare etc...it would be Nirvana.
If they want to continue to grow...perhaps they should focus on capturing a segment of the sailing public that they don't already own.

You haven't posted here since 2001....what brought you back today?
Oh yeah...just so you feel right at home...F.O.N.!! (That's how we say it politely here!)

So, if I've got all this down correctly, it wasn't really that big of a "diss" at all. More like what passes for winter-time conversation at Anarchy perhaps? I guess, if we've settled anything, it might be stated that we here on Sailnet still respect our sheep in the morning. (g) Onward through the fog......

That is very strange, Sennali disappeared in December 2001 with only 6 post and reappeared today with 2 more post. Don't worry Dawg, Sennali will never catch up to your post count.
