Where else can you get so much truthiness and be able to insult others and be insulted, plus read a few posts on sailing?

It's hard to tell which thread put you off, as there isn't one in your posts that is titled as you mention. Your deliver skipper thread was apparently an advertisement as your first contribution to our conversation. Establishing a poll, for readers to provide feedback on your first post ever, and only allowing for a variety of positive feedback was probably not getting off on the right foot with new acquaintances. It's like that old joke, "who's the best skipper you know, and why am I?"
Why don't we all start over and hear what you have to contribute. These forums are for relaxation and entertainment, not for looking for work. Regardless of any of our credentials, all info on a blog needs to be confirmed before using. This community can point one in the right direction.
I would also point out that a bush pilot can often teach a 777 Capt a thing or two. Without that acceptance, an Internet blog is not a good place to hang out.

Pretty thin-skinned to be an experienced TransAt delivery skipper, aintcha?
We didn't miss you before you arrived, we won't miss you when you leave.

As I'm sure you have guessed there are many readers that would value your experience and not say much combined with folks who say a lot and can be a little rough.
There is also the new guy effect where you may have 50 plus years of experience but until you have posted enough for the regulars to get a sense of your background you may get a little hazing.
It is all in good fun and it does not take long for folks to find out who you really are. It is just a little new guy hazing, all in good fun and in the end you may find a lot of appreciate listeners and maybe even lean a thing or two yourself.
