Including posts made by people telling others what not to post / how to post.

Seriously ...

Way too many threads on this forum consist of a couple of real posts followed by pages of people posting on how others should post

If you're referring to myself, I am asking people to consider his loss, his family's loss. People get so caught up in who done it. What shoulda, coulda and woulda.
I'm not telling others what not to post. Just what to consider with peoples feelings. I've been on CF for about 10 years now. I have seen many people here get their feeling hurt and slip away. I use to sit back and watch it happen. Now I figure you're part of the problem or part of the solution. Yes, I get a nasty-gram from a Mod now and again, so I try to keep my toes this side of the hot sand.

Celestial, fwiw, you didnt seem to me to be an antagonist. Clearly compassionate, here and elsewhere.

Not a single thing was posted above about "who done it, what shoulda, coulda and woulda", but rather what possibly happened. That last question would be uppermost in the minds of this person's family right now, as well. When I have participated in threads on public forums hosted by the friends and family of missing sailors (such as Cheeki Rafiki and catamaran Sunsail RC044-978) my comments have been welcomed by those family and friends and I remain in contact with several of them. I do not feel my comments here were particularly insensitive, and had nothing to do with any of the types of speculation you specifically mention, so I don't know why you bother to list them.

Whose feelings on this thread was I or any of the other posters in the first couple of pages hurting? I wasn't offensive, or otherwise disparaging. I made no comment or implication whatever about the skill or practises of the sailor in question other than positively in fact. I was merely thinking out loud about what may have happened, as were others. Really I don't see why this occasions you to come on and police the thread as if somehow those of us who posted did so maliciously. You reference several other threads which have nothing to do with this one in any way whatsoever and now bring up a series of lines of inquiry which weren't addressed in any way. By the way, I've been on here a little shy of 8 years and haven't had a single "nasty-gram" from a mod, and have had a note of thanks relating to a post of mine on the first page of this very thread, to which you apparently take exception.

Or is it that you want myself and Lizzy and others to quietly "slip away" as well? Anyhow I won't address your comments on this again. Please if you offer a critique of my posts in the future, try to reference what I actually said, rather than gesture at something completely unrelated.

Re: Man and dog found dead on yacht

In keeping with the traditions of the sea, and in lieu of any substantial information, this thread will now devolve into silly bickering.

the chip is scanned before entering countries where quarantine restrictions apply eg united kingdom
Whew!

Had a dog that lost his starboard aft leg to cancer... woulda been pissed if I had to re-chip him !

I did regularly ask... and usually received a 25% discount on hotel pet charges though...
