Re: Are we elitists?

I just want to thank Faster for editing Benesailor's post to reflect the quotation, I thought I'd had a stroke for a minute, I guess that's why moderators get the big bucks.

When I first posted here I believe one of my first greeters was smackdaddy. And I am still here appreciating the groups wisdom and sometimes the lack of wisdom.

Re: Are we elitists?

Another forum I post on require ALL new sr members to send ALL the other current sr members $25, $50 to murderators, and $100 to admin....nothing to supposid "good looking mods with ugly dogs!" So when some announce they are new SR members......well anyway.....kinda almost as bad as the SA welcome.......some are pretty good a Smart Asset answers too.

Yes it is, damn, why couldn't it be Ginger or even MaryAnn, it had to be the geek.

And we have a Top Gun instructor, Cmdr Skerrett, yet no Kelly McGillis, go figure

Works for me (and I assume you) - because I banned you on AS too, and you and I both know why, and that it wasn't personal at all.

Ditto, by the way for Brent.
You also know that here, and there, I've applauded you, appreciated your designs etc.

Mod's do what the consensus says, or the owner directs. I promised two years, I gave it.
Nuff said, like Smacky says, this is SN, not elsewhere.

I don't read every single post, but I can honestly say that I have never seen this happen.

What I have seen, is that someone asks a very rudimentary question and they get the answer that if they had spent just a few seconds searching, then they could have found the answer for themselves. That's very different from "you should already know." And depending on how it is worded, it is not necessarily a rude answer, either. Basic forum etiquette dictates that you put in at least a bit of effort yourself, before you demand that others expend effort to answer your most simple of questions.

Then, too, I've seen people ask questions that don't really make sense, or are kind of off-the-wall (can my family of six and I comfortably sail around the world in our Macgregor 26?). These questions sometimes get a very blunt answer. That, too, is a completely different thing than "you should already know."

Again, this may not be the very most friendly forum that God or man has ever created, but is far from an unfriendly place.

Chuckles - no worries. I never blamed you. Seriously.

I had a good sense of what was going on at the time - and that there was very, very little truth behind it all. That much I know for certain. Anyway, it's history - and I have no intention of ever slogging through that history here on SN.

Things worked out in the end pretty much as I figured they would. Funny how that happens.

I'm glad you (and others) are back on SN. It's good to have you elitist bastards around. Heh-heh.

BTW - when are you gonna post some BFS in that sweet new Irwin of yours?
