Smacky,
I think you got me mixed up with somebody else.
I don't remember having any good BFS lines.

C'mon dude, you sell yourself short! This was one of the best ever - back in the good old FightClub days. It's the only reason I have any respect for you whatsoever! (heh-heh)

Than she laughed about it when we got back in.
She is a great girl.

tommays will become famous soon enough
When you come here as a newbi its NOT like SA but i have seen plenty of things that were HARSH until you took the time to realize the total picture


And if your going to sling crap in good fun you have to be prepared that NOT everybody is going to get IT and may throw some back

Tom - that's the truth. I learned that myself on the pointy end.

However, as you might imagine, I will say that I personally think people get a little too tender around here sometimes - firing back with all cannons when a newb spouts off instead of keeping it fun. I don't want this place to be SA - it's great as it is; a really good mix of smack-talk, humor, and TREMENDOUS sailing info and stories - without the in-your-face profanity, etc. of SA. But I've never agreed that a newb has to reach a certain level of posts, or do a certain amount of research, or like certain people, or boats, or macerators, etc. to come on the site and throw down his/her opinions. I don't even care when they are obviously trying to light it up. But when they do so and begin to endure the beat down that inevitably comes with such comments - I say let 'em fight it out. I think that most of the time the return fire is just as harsh as the newbs attempts. And I think the general "troll trigger" around here is too often pulled.

Sure it can get ugly - but just look at the tremendous asset to this forum that I've become after my auspicious entry into the world of Sailnet! (This is the softball pitch, Dog. Oh yeah, you played chess - nevermind.)

Seriously, my recommendation to all lurkers-cum-newbs that tend to be loudmouthed, smacktalking, muckraking, opinionated, blowhards is to take it to FightClub first. Don't spam the whole board with your rant. Keep it focused - then fight it out and see if you can prove your point without going supernova and getting banned. It's way more fun that way.
