What am I saying here?

But we are finding that there are so many disabilities we are constantly tip-toeing around.

My feet hurt.
Screw the eggs, just barge on through. Do you mean accommodate the disabled?

Thank You! We all know it should be: "couldn't care less."

But it could be sarcasm like how Jesus meant "The meek shall inherit the earth".

Re: Moving over from Sailnet

I wonder why the OP announced he was coming across from SN, complete with a prodigious post count. And that hey, he's a serious sailor who gives his boat a regular workout. I think I can hear trumpets. What's wrong with a simple "hello".

Cheap

Quite unusual reply to what should be an unconterversial thread. please don't read motives into what I wrote when I posted my thread. Is this how you welcome fellow sailors? Others have been much more friendly and welcomed me. My experience in sailing doesn't make me a better or worse sailor it just makes me a sailor like everyone else. I enjoy internet forums as it gives me a chance to learn from others as well as pay it forward with what I have learned. To do this i try to keep an open mind to learning and not cloud it with preconceived motives my mind has made up and constructed from a few written sentences. Hopefully you share a similar view or vision and can look past your fabricated premonitions and judgements.
I look forward to many more experiences.

Re: Moving over from Sailnet

I personally hold CF and the folks here in very high esteem. We have always gotten along. THey moderate their sight differently than we do. That is not a bad thing. Some prefer the heavier moderation as is here. Some prefer little to no moderation, as is present on SA. Some like a mix as we try to maintain on Sailnet.

I welcome anyone to participate on both or all sights of their interest. There is nothing wrong with that. I have never felt any animosity between CF or SN or SA. THey are very different forums and attract a different audience. We are not competitors.

I hope everyone here welcomes Dave with open arms and hope he finds this site more to his liking. If not here, somewhere else. I welcome anyone else to come to CF, or Sailnet or Sailing Anarchy or Anything-Sailing and do the same. The medium is unimportant. THis is only the Internet and is not real. What is real and important is the friendships we build along the way. Our common passion is the sea and in that, we are all connected between these forums.

Our newest moderator is a very kind young woman and we are all excited (and lucky) to have her aboard. THere are members there (SN) that can be very abrupt and argumentative. Often their methods strike others wrong, but they also have good information to relay. Some of them come here too, incidentally. Both sites do their best to keep it civil, though we tend to be a little more lax on it (for good and bad) than CF.

Many may ask why I am posting here after I have not posted for so long. Let me say first that my absence from here has been due to time more than anything. As many know, while cruising, I was also very absent there (SN) too. It is in fact because of that absense (and the fact we are heading out again soon for more long distance cruising), we brought on another moderator. However, my absense here has not been due to not liking this site. Quite the opposite - it is a wonderful site and full of great information. I simply had a hard time fitting it in!! THat being said, I have no problem posting here and enjoy any camaraderie, anywhere.

As for my reasons for posting to this thread now, it was to wish all the very best and guarantee you there is no animosity between our sites. I also wanted to show my sincere public support for our moderator, both inside our forum and outside. I also wanted to wish Dave the best and say, frankly, that it is ok to leave sailnet or CF or SA. We are all a big family, just in different houses.

Sincerely,

Brian
Sailnet Moderator (best looking and smartest, incidentally... well, maybe not anymore!)

Re: Moving over from Sailnet

Heh... I like both sites, many of us are on both sites... But Himself has hung at SN more than here because he doesn't want to be "Mr Sarafina" so I keep busy here.

I always figure there is a reason Baskin Robbins has those 31 flavours. Some days it's vanilla, some days it's cherry chocolate. You don't always want the same flavour.

And Brian, I remember when you cast off to cruise, glad to hear all is well ; -)

Re: Moving over from Sailnet

Brian - thanks for posting. The internet is a big place, but the sailing community isn't so large. It's unfortunate that your new mod met with a rocky start - everyone, especially those who volunteer to help out, deserves fair treatment.

Every port is unique as is every sailing forum and each has it's own culture. CF has tried hard to be a safe landing place for all those who sail or are interested and flaming, negative backwash and disputes are generally frowned on. Several folks have taken the opportunity on this thread to voice opinions about other sites when truthfully these concerns should be taken up directly with those venues. When discussions about discussions become detraction's, it's time to change course.

For now we're going to close this thread so that we can get back to the subject at hand; cruising.
