There's a lot of knowledge on this site and a few prolific and useless contributors that diminish the site's value.
It's the moderators job to moderate this and I've seen these useless posts cycle up and down in frequency so perhaps the moderators are working at it but I'm calling out all you useless wasters of time and words to just not bother to post unless you have something to contribute of value.
Let me step up and say that what you are pointing out about useless posts is yourself. And so that you are aware, I will say that any discussion of moderation, moderators, or the proficiency of, is STRICTLY prohibited
in public posts.
Wet v dry is useless, there is no such designation. Please research
. By the way, a 6 ton vessel is unlikely to be laden with 4 tons.

that was not rude or an attack on the OP. Lighten up a little bit. There are diverse personalities on here and just because they offer up a point from their perspective doesn't mean u need to get so aggressive. If u new more about SailMonkey u would know he is a decent man. But u haven't been around long enough to know that, have u?
