Recently I have noticed a lot of people buying or selling or jayhawking a website in their first post not even trying to say hello and introducing themselves is it just me or is society becoming more rude as I get older

Re: whats up with no introductions

they are most likely just as dry, humorless, and reserved in real time too

Re: whats up with no introductions

You know, I don't chafe at no introduction so much as I do that we so often get very specific questions yet the poster provides no meaningful information in the their profile.

Re: whats up with no introductions

Sorry... here is mine, belated..

Hi, my name is John... I've become aware in the last 10 years that I have this disorder, called sailing. As a kid growing up, I'd jump in boats with sails, and crew, or even sail sometimes, but it wasn't until the last 10 years or so that I realized, that I HAVE to sail... this addiction has turned into many hours of overburned skin from wind or sun, chapped lips, and raw hands (with calluses where only climbers would get them)...

Along with this sailing affliction, comes the desire to consume either large quantities of beer, or rum... or sometimes, gulp, both.

As a side effect the need to sail in heavier and heavier winds, and also to make the boat go faster than everyone else with boats with sails... this affliction seems to ignore boats with motors as if they weren't even part of the competition.

My apologies for not having stepped forth before this point...
"Hi I'm John, and I'm a sailaholic."
Noteable too, for some reason, sailors want to also state their boat size and sailing grounds, (as if some kind of male genetailia comparison)... Mine is an S2 7.9 (26 feet for those who can't convert metric to her majesties numbers) trailerable, sailed on a landlocked puddle made by man, by damming up a river, called Wallenpaupack.

Its been 3 days since my last sail...

"Rum Line" a 1982, S2 7.9 - Production boat limit tester, blue-water bucket owner, with wine taste on a beer budget.
