It was to be expected. Is signature is a POLITICAL one. You show reprehensible double standards in what regards Politics and this site

Thanks again everyone.

Brian,

I recently removed a signature similar to Slow and Steady's that was placed just to tweak him.
Some have accused me of being a troll or trolling. My present avatar is my attempt at a little humor. If you think it is offensive, I will remove it.

Well, thank you!!, that was my intent. The boat is virtually identical to one my Dad and I owned in our commercial salmon fishing venture, one of the dumbest things I have done. Luckily we got out of it alive and just about broke even after all the dust settled.

Umm, you live on a boat surrounded by water and you own a dog that swims like a cinder block.

I think we can say your judgement is questionable.

You're good Paul. But if you really want to get in my good graces, you will put:

CD IS THE BEST LOOKING AND SMARTEST MALE MODERATOR

in your signature. Plus, you get a free banana bread recipe!

HEHEHE!

Brian

I don't know Brian, I think there's one or two folks on here that wouldn't mind living your version of insanity. Give the pooch a scratch for me.

Hi Everyone,

I am speaking on behalf of all the moderators here.

We have really tried to keep Sailnet an open and friendly place to discuss sailing related things. We have also tried to maintain a separate Off Topic forum where members can go to discuss things that are not sailing related or may be too political for the mainstream sailing board. In general, we do not want to play the role of censors and allow as much 'free speech' as possible.

However, if or when the politics begin to seep into the mainstream forum, we have to make some judgment calls. Our decisions do not come easy and are generally debated (or overly debated!!) before we act. We want to be seen as fair and moderate to all the members, and this can at times be difficult as we may have strong opinions on the matters and we know the members have strong opinions. Complicating this is that some discussions which are sailing related are inherently political in nature and bring out strong reactions from those with opposing views.

So we would like to ask all the members to be understanding if we request you to modify your postings or signatures. It is difficult for us to ask this because it is important that everyone sees us as never taking sides, either way. But it is even more important that everyone sees us as trying to keep the board as friendly and inviting as possible to the majority population. If we do reach out and ask you to tone it down or change your signature, please understand we do it reluctantly and out of necessity for all those who participate here. Another favor: If your signature could be interpreted as political in nature, please consider removing it so we don't have to ask or you don't offend others.

We're all friends here.

Brian and the Mod Squad
Thank you Brian for posting this. I am new here, but strong political opinions and other rhetoric and the sometimes angry even hateful responses wreck any forum for me. Much of it is based in ego and arrogance and it has no place among friends. Friendly is good. That is why I am here.
thanks,
johnb23
