Why has this board gone stale?

Now that sailing season is upon us, I''ve noticed that the board seems to be no longer stale!

Why has this board gone stale?

I think it is the debate of subjects like cruising designs that makes a forum fun. It is a subject that has no resolution and it can give endless hours of enjoyable debate. What is the point if everyone agrees? Sure, sometimes we overstep and offend, like I did on the "general" board just recently. But when you do, apologize and move on. It is the lack of spirited discussion that prompted me to start this thread. I think the many and varied responses to this subject show that there still at least some spirit left in this board.

Don`t forget about,great stuff, especially for true displacement boats.There is alot of collective knowledge there and is extremely active.Everyone there is on the same page when it comes to hull design,unlike here with the continual bickering and both sides being entrenched with their own opinions.I am not going to even get into sailing performance because that is another great divider.I think there should be a cruising only section(true displacement hull) and it would help significantly.

For me, it''s members that claim to have massive experiance but then have to copy out of a book to try and proove their point.
And isn''t there supposed to be a moderater of some sort that is suppossed to delete posts, or entire topics, that have nothing to do with sailing.
If I''m correct in assuming this, I ask you to please do your job.

I think Walt''s comment was just tongue-in-cheek . . . masquerading as a flamer from India just isn''t your style. Contrarily, your contributions to these forums could never cause the board to go "stale" :~)

I have not changed my name or the waters I ply but I''d like to keep that option open!

I believe someone had it right when they noted that the posts from a few religious zealots have dissuaded many from contributing, that IMHO coupled with the philosophical nature lately of some of the questions rather than the "nuts and bolts'' type of queries that once pervaded the boards. If the sarcastic nature of my posts have contributed to the absence of the "past regulars" I sincerely apologize...NOT!

I know the next post will read something like “it’s comment like the above, thanks for making the point”

Couldn''t agree more.

Why has this board gone stale?

The board has gone stale as it has been pirated by religious zealots and/or caustic posters bent on their own egocentric views rather than sailing topics. I rarely visit as a result and fully expect a reply to this from one or the other of these two groups.
