Re: Bringing in extra clams on deck.

I don't know about his other threads, but at least in THIS thread, he started it solely for the purpose of calling us names, and telling us he was going to break the law. Surely no one could be surprised that he got negative responses to an opening post like that!

Re: Bringing in extra clams on deck.

I don't think the guy's for real. No one who knows how to use a metal lathe well enough to make money with it would try to do so on a boat, nor would they try to do boat work with a lathe small enough to fit on a boat.

A trawler would have room for my floating wooden canoe shop... HVAC and... more!
Nothing wrong with dreamers ..... he was just dick looking for an argument

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

I have no problem with dreams and dreamers, but when facts like work permits make them unrealistic and impractical, I would expect a thank you instead of an argument. At that point, the thank you, other more practical suggestions can be put forward that may actually help the dreamer achieve their dreams.

I always thought it was common knowledge that one cannot simply arrive in a foreign country and go to work.

Re: Bringing in extra clams on deck.

I'm pretty sure the OP itself acknowledged the need for permission to work, but flouted it. This was a troll thread, by it's very definition.

Work permits were in the first post in the thread which I see the OP has now deleted and replaced with an emoji.

Obviously a troll and a jerk besides but maybe that is part of the definition of a troll. Maybe he should get a life.

Re: Bringing in extra clams on deck.

The lecture is feeling a little troll-like.

No one has to respond but, it seems like everybody must, It's probably one of the hardest things to do, NOT respond.

Most sites have an ignore feature and it's one of the most unused features internet sites have.

My ignore list on Facebook is in the hundreds LOL

So after dozens and dozens of comments one has to wonder, what's worse, the troll, or the trolled?

Another unused feature is thread tools in the page, you can unsubscribe,
First, it isn't always clear if a post is a troll or just a misguided individual. If you have an infallible troll radar please clue me in on how it works. But wait, you responded to the thread as well.

Second, just in case some gullible person (there's a lot of them out there) thinks what the (possible) troll posted it doesn't hurt to point out the errors of the post. But I do agree, if there is an obvious troll, especially a repeat offender, the best thing to do is ignore him or her.
