As chopkins1 suggests, I think the point has been well established, and further repetition is mere nagging.
We can say it in innumerable ways, but when we say it in a number of different ways - over and over again, that constitutes nagging. Nagging is generally ineffective, disrespectful, annoying, and is usually perceived as criticism and/or scolding.

I see many threads that take on the same track.

I don't see it as nagging.

Sometimes we don't listen to one person....we need to hear it from many.

When it comes to safety and the well being of our guests, our boats and ourselves
reinforcement is a good thing.

I have seen far too many boats with "fire" nuts, household/residential (solid conductor) wire, speaker wire used for circuits used and way too many extension cords....because people are uninformed/cheap.

Indeed.
If there's anyone left uncertain, I'll add my voice to the symphony of good advice already offered.
