Re: Fond Fairwell

I've found that most forums have their political rooms that otherwise courteous, mature members use to behave like two-year olds, and check all their decency at the link. Now I have carefully chosen the forums I subscribe to and participate in, and totally avoid the political rooms. Ironically, the two political forums I belong to (dedicated political forums) the people seem to behave much better. Maybe they're the political "pros" who better understand the need for civility, when knowingly discussing hot topics in the first place? When in a sailing forum, I stick to sailing.

Let me join the chorus of those asking you to reconsider your exit. Maybe just curtail certain rooms?

Re: Fond Fairwell

You know other than differences in political opinions into which I'll lump stuff like Climate Change there really is not a hell of a lot of toxin in OffT. It can get pretty dreary and sludgy at times but with the occasional exception it really is not all that bad.

Then again I am a bleeding heart liberal so what the 'eck would I know.

Hey Smack .... I forged your ID and I've been cashing your cheques for years. PT pays better than SFM I can tell you.

Re: Fond Fairwell

So TD, if you have been cashing Smacky's cheques, Who's been cashing mine?!?!?!?! Mr Winston?

I stay the hecko out of OT, not sure why it is here. ANother forum I mod in, has an OT per say, but still not politics, religion etc can be disCUSSed! If it gets brought/put into an area, delete box it goes! or modified if need bed.........

Looking forward to meeting you in person on the water...

Re: Fond Fairwell

Actually I don't see anything wrong with OT discussions and people posting ignorant comments. That can all be ignored. If you want to see trolls go to the Yahoo financial section under any stock. Those boards are almost useless and I commend the moderators here for keeping that type of suff under control. Hate to see T37Chef leave also, since he too provides good info.

Re: Fond Fairwell

Dave,

Huge loss for us, although I agree that the off-topic stuff should find another home. I hope to see you on the Bay.

Oh great. Now who's going to cook? Heh-heh.

Have a good break T. You'll be missed.

PS - I've always gotten you two chefs mixed up.

Re: Fond Fairwell

OT sections on forums are an invitation to troll. We have a rule at the bar in my restaurant, no politics, no religion. Have lost customers over the years because of this. Heck, Mets/Yankees is bad enough.

Re: Fond Fairwell

It is your call, but your input is very helpful, and we need it here! I have never met you, but you were one of the first to welcome me to this site, your named DAVE, and sail a C&C, don't go! Dave.
