Some may still have to learn the tide floats all boats. I ,for one , look forward to the flood.

Welcome to the "silent majority" section of Sailnet Miraclo! Upstart? Nah! just jump in and post and ask and tell and give advice. When someone comes out of the woodwork and posts something negative on one of your discussions don't let em stop you. just use the "ignore" feature" if they really bother you.

Well said, Denise. Now, get back to the galley and make me a sammich.

As I've often said here, Sailnet is like having a bunch of sailors hang out at your house without having to feed them. There are lots of opinions, good advice, bad advice, jokes, fun. Sailnet is kind of what you make it for yourself.

Absolutely! That's how you become familiar with everyone and everyone with you. Sometimes you have to have a thick skin, however, and not take things personally. Keep reminding yourself that no one here knows you so if you receive a negative response to something you write, it's a reaction to what you wrote, not to you (unless of course you come across as belligerent and a totally unsafe sailor, then all bets are off ).

Don't spend much time in hersailnet as too many of the discussions become mired in smut. What is risqué banter on the deck at the sailing club face to face, comes across as dirty old men online. I'd rather be cleaning seagull poo from my deck again than scrolling pages of innuendo to get to the good info buried in all the posts. What is fun over a beer at the bar, becomes tiresome when you are actually looking for real advice or experience. I live and sail in a family of 4 males, one a teenager so I can handle smutty humour.... But I'd rather give it a miss in a Her-centred forum. Waiting for the first to call me a wowser but you did ask why many of stayed quiet!
