Apparently, you haven't listened to the song in the context of Randy Newman's body of work, nor have you listened to the whole song. Here's the payoff:

Short People are just the same
As you and I
(It's A Wonderful World)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die


There, I've just removed a bit of disgust from your life.

The whole "I get annoyed at newbie questions" thing kinda annoys me though . No one forces anyone to read, let alone respond, to anything here. If you're annoyed by a newbie post, just move on. If you don't have anything useful to say, read something else.

What annoys me much, much more than obvious newbie questions are old farts posting useless and sometimes snarky comments like, "Use the search tool!" or "Go read a book!"

I have no problem with people using this forum as the first source of info. I usually ignore the obvious "I have a dream, but don't know where to start" threads. But there's nothing wrong with the same question about anchors, hulls, heads, engines, and insurance coming up over and over. If I have something useful to contribute, I do. If not, I move on. No biggy.

After all, this is a discussion group, not a library.

Couldn't agree with you more!

And the irony -- often --- is people are asking the advice of the 'old farts' who one would hope, now better....

Many a time I have posted a question to a forum or list serv and was met with the mean-ness, when what I was hoping for was some sage advice.

If my question was: "Which side is up, on my Designer's Choice 15"

Perhaps it is stupid, perhaps I could find the answer elsewhere

but I don't want my answer from a Yelp Review, I want it from my future friend on SailNet

Now THAT YOU COMPLETED THE SONG I do remember the rest of the lyrics.

I also have the one for bugs: The bugs crawl in, the bugs crawl out, the bugs play pinochle on your snout.....

Someone should write a song

I don't know if they deserve a song

Re: So much hate to new people.

I love the fact that this forum does in fact answer interesting questions. Its not just a front for a bunch of cliquey people who are only interested in arranging outings in their little part of the world for their boat type, and are shepherded by someone with a very narrow viewpoint.

People with wide views are here and they will share them. And if I don't like them I can tell them, but they still have the right to share them anyways.

Re: So much hate to new people.

SARCASM if people can't read

THIS THREAD IS USELESS !

PLEASE discuss sailing, not I'm offended by xyz, I AM offended by how the progressives have gutted my ability to speak about what is ACTUALLY happening.
I sincerely "HOPE" you get what is happening.

Argh.

Moderators please delete me if you disagree. I wil know where you stand with FREEDOM if that's the case.

I found FAR more jerks on CF than I've ever found on SA. The difference is, the actual jerks on SA are the outsiders, the actual jerks on CF are the insiders.

This place is a much better balance of the two. Everyone's a jerk on SN.

https://www.sailnet.com/forums/genera...elm-style.html

The guy just wanted information, and before some of us answered his question, we slammed him. Later in the thread, someone mentioned that maybe our tone with the poster wasn't so great, but by that time, the damage was done.

Maybe not so much hate, but arrogance? Probably not the idea way to welcome a new sailor to our forum.

Just sayin'....
Dude, trust me, this place is FAR better than it used to be in terms of slamming newbs (you're welcome BTW).

Grab a six-pack and some cornnuts and read through these classics to see what I mean:

https://www.sailnet.com/forums/cruisi...tml#post118208

https://www.sailnet.com/forums/living...g-miracle.html

https://www.sailnet.com/forums/genera...ly-sucked.html

https://www.sailnet.com/forums/gear-m...olar-wind.html

I mean, back then we had a MODERATOR setting up people in order to ban them. Just like over on CF.

No, it's WAY better around here now. So let's keep some perspective on all this.
