Re: Politics and Moderation

Folks around here become excitable enough discussing anchors.

Posted in a gun thread once that was enough. How y'all wanna run that country of yours over there is up to you to figure out, i'm here for the sailing. Just keep Disneyland open, and your dollar down until I have ordered my new chartplotter from West Marine.

Re: Politics and Moderation

It's great that there's a place that the poor folks that use tillers, and haven't learned that the Rocna anchor has the best holding of any out there and have not moved up to the pure pleasure of a roller furling main, refrigeration, air conditioning, radar and AIS on a fast and comfortable modern production boat rated for global circumnavigation and the paper charts have been replaced with electronics can feel comfortable posting.




Yah, I think I'm pretty funny, image what happens when you feed me beers!

Re: Politics and Moderation

I appreciate the light touch moderators use here on SN (moderation in moderation). It's easy to avoid "fight club" threads (politics, guns, anchors, etc.), and objectionable people can always be put on your ignore list. That said, when people cross the line into outright personal attacks, or when they start spouting truly extreme positions, then mods do need to step in.

I take part in CF as well, and while I appreciate that forum, I think their approach is a bit too heavy-handed at times. I think SN has, in general, found a better balance -- so thanks.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Politics and Moderation

Now just wait a damn minute Brian.

Are you suggesting sailors can be opinionated?

Some people just can't help themselves, but eventually everybody got it and things were much happier as a result.
