Andrew, thanks for the reply. So as to not muddy the waters here, I will post my further questions on "Off Topic".

Thanks, Paul T

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

I did log off, indeed no "Off Topic" forum section is visible. Also, any such lurkers cannot use posted links and don't see attached pics so access is fairly limited.

So true lurkers only see the sailing related forums, but a simple login opens everything up.

Incidentally, just now there were 104 members logged in, and 549 "guests", presumably lurkers, though some of those might be those mysterious non-spamming spammer signups...

And finally.. back to the original topic, wondering if there's any further followup on events at Union Island???

As I walked by the "Charter in St Vincent and Grenada" guy at the Annapolis sb show I felt for him. I could almost sense his worry that someone will walk up and ask about the incident. He did ask me if i ever considered.....which I cut him off with, yes I have and had the time of my life. Bequia, PSV and all.

They could, but in practice that rarely happens. Last person who I recall having no (discernable) connection to sailing whatsoever who posted only in the Off-Topic / PWRG was RAGNAR... and he's been on self-imposed exile for some time. Like the possibility of civil, rational, and enlightened discussion of hot topics on the Internet, what is theoretically possible tends to never happen in practice

That said, this is really off topic now. If you'd like to discuss it further, I'm more than happy to join you in an off topic thread on the matter. Lets not derail this thread with the subject.

Could be? However, somebody could become a member and not visit anything else but "off topic" & PRWG? Seems to me if the owners or administrators don't like what is discussed on Off Topic or PRWG, they could just do away with it.

I joined Sail Net in 2007. Until a bit ago, I seldom, if ever, visited those sites.
However, now I find them very entertaining and sometimes interesting.

Maybe the Moderators could allow each member just one post per day/week/month to weed out the riff raff?
