Welcome!

Just to join the game, our 357 Dan Wesson is really cool, but I have to say my 45/70 Marlin lever action guide gun is my co pilot.

Anchors....Mantus (I'm from Texas originally so gotta go with the home team)

Well... hi! Welcome (again)

What is your favorite pistol caliber and anchor type (and more importantly, why?)?

This is the best welcome I have ever read!

We should also add, "please post some stock sailing photos of yourself as a sock puppet, alter ego, or other invented personality..."

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

Bentwire, no one is digging in on you. I wasn`t anyhow. Put down your guns and lighten up, really. I was just following up on chrisncate`s Nigerian comment which I found was funny. I get those emails all the time too. Telephone calls too which is when I love to have my revenge. I string them along for a long time chatting just wasting their time like they waste mine, but I know that they are paying for the call.

If I were to dig on you I`d say something like "Luckily we didn`t say anything about the dirty knife" in hopes that any Monty Python fans (the supposed offended brits) would understand it and chime in and if YOU didn`t get the pun, so much the better.

jimgo said it best earlier about not agreeing with everyones opinion. I seek advice in here to use it as a sounding board and to learn something new so I can sail better which makes me look better in front of my 12 yr old daughter only until I crack my head on the boom which makes her giggle non-stop all day long.

What did you mean not understanding certain cultures? This is a forum with sailors from all over the world. Coming in to any forum with your guns blazing won`t make you any friends here. You can expect the opposite.

Good luck with sailnet Bentwire. I`m finished with adding more.

Re: Thanks for the warm welcome,

I read this and was very amused. You start off with a grumpy attitude in the chat, then dig the knife in deeper by whining about the "poor" treatment in chat, and you wonder why the regulars (with whom, on any given topic, I don't always agree, but whose feedback is still VERY much appreciated and who, if you actually DID read the site as you claimed, are generally well respected) circled the wagons? Then Andrew resurrects this thread out of nowhere after it died a very timely death over a year ago, and your first reaction is to come back with the same "friendly" attitude? Dude, let it go and just move on. Clearly this site, which has been extremely welcoming to most of the people I've seen since I joined, isn't meant for you.
