How true. Maybe there should be a category for the uncouth posters. What should it be called?

Re: Politics and Moderation

Just wanted to weigh in with 'thanks' for the thanks... by and large we have a very good group here on Sailnet... it's the only sailing forum I need.

Uh... Paul/Dabnis.... about that signature. It's provocative, perhaps libelous and just wee bit too much suck-up.. I think it's gotta go....

Re: Politics and Moderation

Some of the Mods at in the past have very strong opinions and many of those opinions would not be called centrist or moderate by any means. Something you might want to discuss among yourselves.I have only recently come back to this site after a long long absence. Your "rep" is poor. But I have come back to see for myself. Certainly Sailnet has lost much business over the years because of this. Dont shoot the messenger. I am am just repeating what I hear constantly on other boards.

Good Luck

So noted, gone. I had to bribe Brian so I wouldn't get blown off the air.

I think the guy promoting gun control with every post, should have that part deleted.

Re: Politics and Moderation

Actually, this thread (for the most part) strikes me as group think. I consider a signature to be like the ads on the side of forum or blog or a bumper sticker; read them if you like, or don't. It's not a person coming up to you and saying "I think...."

Is our collective skin grown so thin that we're offended by non-profane bumper stickers? Certainly any political sticker would be improper, by that measure.
