oh, cripes, how come I always have to be the cautionary whale?
I apologized. Idiotfest is now the de riguer terminology.
Let's all let it go...

Chef started this thread in response to my request in the LSC thread that he give me a link for where I'd "personally attacked" someone as he seemed to imply:

Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy

(His reply two posts down from mine.)

Thus far, there's been no link. Because what he said wasn't accurate...again.

So, Chef can certainly correct me if I'm wrong - but it seems pretty clear that I'm the "other smug hyperposter" and "mindless internet denizen" to which he refers.

Again, I don't give a damn...other than being unwilling to let anyone get by with a double-standard and/or accusing me of stuff that didn't happen.

I'll always respect people who deserve respect. I'll even respect people who I've gone a few rounds with in the past - if they keep it civil and non-whiney. I don't really hold grudges (okay, maybe 1).

So - I'm headed back to the sailing talk. Chef has some thinking to do. And these kinds of threads are boring.

I do want to be very clear .... I was not having a go at the guy. I was merely saying that in some folk's minds he was one fabulous resource and in others he was pompous. Perceptions brought on by his on line persona.

Snappy,

What Ned Flanders said and...

Maybe it is time for a Bikini waxing or some other entertainment? Margaritas from the blender under the mirrored ball in your yacht perhaps?

I don't think you are doing yourself any favours by being so thin skinned yourself, but I got no dog in this fight.

I have met you in person and I liked you but sometimes your on-line persona can be, well, a bit abrasive. You would do well to remember that old expression: "Silence is golden". That may not make sense from a marketing perspective but from a human perspective it makes a lot of sense.

It is your online persona so you will sail her as you choose Scrappy. Have at 'cause I don't even know what all the flack is about.

What the fach? (My niece is an opera singer).

Yes, I understand TDW, you are very diplomatic. I actually stayed off sailnet for years because of the insults. But, everthing is beautiful and everyone is wonderful, and "nothing is good or bad, only thinking makes it so". Shakespeare quote. Spin zone.

It's not just a matter of the words themselves, rather it is that those who don't venture into the sewer do so for very good reasons and part of those reasons is to avoid the intemperate language that is part and parcel of our little corner of hell.
TD is spot on IMHO - the cranky, nasty, witty, absurd, condescending, angry and/or merely intemperate has it's place - OFF TOPIC - AKA The Sewer.
