It is alright on the forum to post deliberate lies? Because you are lying. I never said that all monohulls regarding the quality could be afloat for years after being abandoned and you know it.

Anyway a lie says much more about the liar than about the one that is object of the lie.

So, I am right. If one does not personally like cats, then for you he hates cats

Maybe you don't know about it but there is a huge difference between not liking something or hating it.

That is not needed, he only has to post what he says that I said to prove he is not a liar.

Very fine line between the two, but I'm positive you will argue that as well.

Re: GUNBOAT Dismasting

You don't have to say you hate something for it to be true. It comes out in the postings and regular comments. It's always the same players coming into the multi forum making disparaging comments about cats and then saying that cat owners are too sensitive or whatever. The blind bias at play again.

I vote for all multi owners to jump in the the mono threads and do the same and see what happens...

..
Dislike means not liking something meaning preferring something else, not passion in it, just a fact. Hating something implies a repulsive attitude towards something, nobody hates anything without a strong motive, it is a passionate negative attitude, many times a biased one.

I found strange that so many don't see or feel the difference between not liking something or hating something.

Be my guest, I think that story about monohull and multihull forums makes no sense at all. They are all sailboat and having separated forums only contributes for biased views from both sides.

To YOU they don't make any sense. It would appear that you have real issues separating your opinion from the reality of a situation. The reality is that there ARE separate forums and that it caters for people who want to discuss one or the other and that many of us prefer it that way. Regardless, it won't stop people, such as yourself, making uneducated, ill informed and biased statements against multis; they would just be in a different forum.

Anyway, whatever dude ... you seem to get a kick out of the reactions you get in this forum and, not only is that against the forum rules (trolling) it just really says a lot about you.

I've genuinely had a gutful of this crap. It's really detracting from the enjoyment I used to get out of spending time in this forum. I don't understand why we have rules against trolling but they don't get enforced when it concerns multihulls.

It's envy that drives them to post here. Lack of envy is why we don't bother to reciprocate.

Yes, I like many are interested in multihulls and monohulls and interested in discussing both.

Regarding all that crap about me posting biased and not fundamented statements about multihulls it should be easy to quote me on that but I guess that you would not be very lucky at that, fundamented differences of opinion aside. Why don't you try?
