Once you start reading them you realize that the majority are from people who simply have never experienced life and are striking out in fear. It's sad (from a distance and when the aren't directed at me) and I hope RH either don't read them or wait until they have recovered a bit emotionally.

Care to explain what attractiveness has to do with any of this? ...
It helps with job hunting when starting over with essentially nothing, as compared, say, to a couple of idiots covered with tatoos with pins in their faces and other places.

They are also bright and articulate IMO. Need that explained too?

Here's one for you Max: What does all that negativity get ya?

Whats that show? I'm Dyslexic and my spelling and grammar are atrocious but I assure you that I am neither stupid nor ignorant. Spelling and grammar are not accurate indicators of intelligence, however the substance of some of those posts just may be.

Sorry, I'm just a fan of understanding and learning. Feel free to do things your way.

Re: Forum Member's boat and daughter in trouble off of Mexico

Just back in internet range, crossing from Tasmania to NSW.

ERIC & CHARLOTTE, AND THE YOUNG ONES: BE WELL.

If there is something you think we might be able to do to help now, please PM us.


THANK YOU ATOLL, for a most generous offer.

To everyone else, just because they are aboard the Navy vessel does not mean that Lyra is out of danger. Keep the kind thoughts and good wishes flowing. There may still be the need for quite a while.

Ann

Sorry, I never considered that. In some instances it indicates at a minimum a poor education. Not so in your case. Nonetheless, your spelling and grammer look above average to me and would be out of place with those negative posters.

ya?

So you have a problem with tattoos and piercings? And that makes people idiots? I can't even think of anything to say without breaking form rules. I know calling people idiots is right of the line, but if you judge peoples IQ by the way they look you might be the idiot.

Re: Forum Member's boat and daughter in trouble off of Mexico

There majority of all posting are offering moral and financial support. That said let us all remember the media is reaping rewards from the continuing coverage thru advertisers. Some media will be seeking a personal interview with the family and follow up stories will spawn . "Rebel Heart" Erick is not a fool .

Not a problem, and I agree with your basic premiss.
Around 17% of the population is Dyslexic. Without spellcheck even I would not be able to read my own writing!

Yepper. You got me. That's pretty much how I feel. Perhaps "idiots" was over the top however.

If you read my comment carefully you'll note I was referring to finding a job. E and C won't be looking for work at McDonalds. (With apologies to all the CFers who do, in fact, work at McDonalds, and have pins and ink and are just misguided youth, IMO, but not idiots.)

Dang, we got us some fighters on the forum tonight. No full moon either. Maybe it's something in the water.

Re: Forum Member's boat and daughter in trouble off of Mexico

We have been out of internet range for 3 days and were stunned by the news of Rebel Heart, one of the saner member of this forum.
I jumped to page 33 to find the latest news and found this dumb, fairly typical Yahoo quote.
A circum via Cape Town to avoid pirate areas, sure, but why assume they going to go round The Horn? I'm sure they would have gone via Panama like 99% of us.
Wishing the very best outcome for R.H. and Family.

Incredible. These are dangerous trips in larger boats, but in a small sailboat with only two adults to man her, that seems scary. And if they ran into foul weather (likely around Cape Horn, particularly) who'd look after the children while parents are trying to keep the ship going?
