Re: So much hate to new people.

Seems the norm for people on the internet to vet their anger and hate... hey it's easy since it involves no real interaction. I have architect friends who state the same anger, unprofessionalism, miscontent when differing in viewpoints on their forums not much different than what we see here and in other sailing forums.

I don't believe I see this in real life with people at the dock or marina but instead see helpful, full of advice, good natured sailors and visitors. I only see this back to back vitriol here and I am one to admit I have done my share of it in the past. No real intention... 'The internet made me do it' is about what anyone can suffice.

Good point, Don. Experience or no experience, just when you think you can do no wrong, you do.

Re: So much hate to new people.

I don't know..."hate","new" and small are such overused terms, as in "I hate because he is the new guy and his boat is small" Let's mix up the terms a bit. How about "I abhor him because he is shallow (and so is his draft) and insensitive" or we could evoke the class struggle and say "I will imprison him because he is a capitalist and has more money in his boat than me". I mean "give hate a chance" is cute and everything, but come on, lets be creative. How about a little goth and we could "give the plague a chance, get your boat rats in New Mexico" and bring love with a pocket full of Paises.
If we're going to flame, let's flame with color!

Seems like you either have some personal issues you need to resolve, as has already been suggested, or you just throw the "hate" word around indiscriminately. Either way, you should quit it.
Hostile are we?

Re: So much hate to new people.

Sailors are like electricians. They know that there is only one way to do something.

They know that if someone does it in another way than the "right way" it will destroy the balance of life as we know it. And they know that if they hear that someone did it differently than the right way, that it will also destroy their entire understanding of the world as they know it, and so that person must be stopped, and in as abrupt a way as possible.

What they don't know is that there are actually a 100 ways to do something, and that their way is just one of the 100.

The other side of that coin is that there are 10,000 wrong ways to do something. I find at least 1 or 2 every time I take my boat out.

I hope you are saving them so you can write a best-seller.

I read a book online(I think I have on it on my main computer) where the guy did something seriously wrong every time he went out. He began to expect it. After he stopped doing things wrong, he bought a new boat because he said sailing without making a serious error was just no fun anymore.

I can't imagine that, unless I try really really hard.

I did start a log book of lessons-learned. But then I left it in the boat and it got covered in mildew....
