Not looking for love... An observation that, had this thread not been there, probably would have just slipped away. The rubber really meets the road when someone has questions - do they get help or just nasty comments and ridicule. There is usually a mixture of both on any forum. Iím not making any judgement in that area.

Re: So much hate to new people.

My observations have mostly been amazement at the tolerance and helpfulness of most of the 'response to newbs.' Even when the obvious troll comes back again and again it takes a while for the diversive snort for those who know not and know not they know not .For those that know not and know they know not, the response is usually favourable. methinks.

Well, fire away. I think you will find questions of a technical nature get pretty good responses on this site.

Re: So much hate to new people.

There are probably much better Net forums out there to receive cyber hugs.

That is what I'm seeing in the Learning to Sail forum.

There probably are forums just for that. If I ever come across any, I'll be sure to let you know.
