*note--I'm not an active moderator any longer, so this is just my personal opinion.
I agree with Hud. It is not enough of a problem to warrant a deletion. A closure? Yes indeed.

In the future, if anyone has a problem with a thread or a specific post then please address this to a moderator with a Private Message or better yet by clicking on the red triangular Report Post icon. By clicking on this icon a window will come up where you can write your description of the problem.

Thanks

So! moderators please delete the thread about please delete the thread if that is at all possible. Also, whilst doing that, could you please delete any thread that i have not posted in and therefore save me time looking through all the titles of threads that are of no interest to me.

Yours without hope.

Coops.

Re: Moderators: Please delete the thread "Tender theft..."

bwwwwhhhhaaahhahahaaaaaa...

NEVER I tell you, NEVER!

This thread shall remain an eternal tribute to the heresy and foul distortion of the truth and the premise that the basic decency of those who have given so much to so many for so few....

What were we talking about?

I forget.

I would like to applaud Jerry.
Here is a OP that took on board the various comments presented, didn't get "narky" and was pleasant through out.

You thought that it may turn into a "pirate" thread?

As Gilda Radner used to say "Never Mind"
One thing that annoys me about the Internet is that it manages to carry on without me - no idea how - but there we are .

What I was going to add to this thread was to make clear that whilst I disagreed with your suggestion of a thread deletion that I had no problem with you (or anyone else) making the argument for that - I can see both sides of the argument.

In this case I just think you were on the wrong side ........ but not enough to get all "Internet Excited" (Toys, Pram etc etc)....when I want to experiance that I just go to the Multihull sub forum and read ......or post something "Anti-Multihull"........like "Hello".

But now you have changed your mind, seems no point in saying all that ......unless you are lying about the change of mind
