MOST TIRED CF THREAD TOPICS POLL

Which one of these thread topics is the most tired and should probably not be discussed any further, unless there is some breaking new information to share on it. Please vote on one and share other tired topics to consider by posting.

I enjoy ALL of these topics. For entertainment purposes, of course.

I find it laughable that well-travelled, allegedly enlightened ADULTS find it necessary to bicker like schoolchildren over matters of taste and opinion.

You guys (and gals) are funny! Please continue!

How about this one:

The necessity for CF to decide which Threads you read……..

I see alot of new people introducing themselves lately to this board. How can any threads be old and tired, unless you're of the old and tired that hang out here.

Are you suggesting that people that have been here awhile should leave, or that they are just old and tired and that only new people should participate in discussions?

Why do people want to control things, or is is it possible that Keegan is just trying to stir the pot??? If you think a thread is tired don't read it. If it is naturally tired it will die away anyway.

Dont be rediculous by suggesting that I am "stirring the pot". I find it hard to interpret anything about this thread as "controlling" It is a topic of discussion, just like ALL other threads. The only people that control anything here are the Moderators, last I checked anyway.

Like you say Steve, if you don't like a thread, don't read it, that would include this one I presume.

Thanks Keegan. There might be a bit of value in the catamaran vs monohull debate to someone who has 0 or a little sailing experience and wants to start looking at a specific boat to buy. Sailors who are in that category need to go out and sail each to make up their minds. The debate certainly is old and tired. I find myself not even looking at threads in the multihull category even if there might be some value in them just because I might have to read about someones opinion that there is some great advantage to their choice of vessel.
regards,
JohnL

You are right of course I didn't need to read this thread, but as it was a new one how was I to know, (Shades of catch 22) now I do I wont bother next time I see it. Although by the tone of your reply is it possible I hit a nerve?

No one likes being accused of an something that is not true. I am sure you can relate. I am over it already though, so no big deal

Not all threads are meant for everyone. If you have read a similar thread before or the topic does not interest you then move on to the next thread.

Maybe the next time a newbie to the board askes "what are the advantaes of multihulls vs monhulls", several of the "regulars" should suggest they do a google search on CF and read the thousands of already exhisting posts on the subject and see if they have any questions once they do. I bet all of their questions would be answered if they just did a search.

Some of the threads that are old and tired to some are enlightening to someone else.

Just for the record these most tiresome topics are actually some of the most popular. I can't explain it and it's not like we salt the forum with them to add traffic either. Sailors and wannabe sailors tend to sail where they will. Those that just can't get enough seem to live for the stuff and others learn to avoid them. I've been tired of all three for a lot of years already.

If you have any topic you really do like then find a section and start a new thread. Those that start new threads get the reward of discussing what you like. The rest of us need something to do.
