Re: The Bum(fuzzle)s Are Moving Afloat Again !

lol... Flatterer...

Honestly, for all we are viewed as *nazi mods* by many, we really do just try to keep it polite and civil and on topic. You guys can talk about pretty much what ever within those parameters.

I am always amazed by how often when someone does get moderated they are SURE it's because we don't *agree with their viewpoint* when it really IS that we don't agree with their word choice or feel the topic is outside the guidelines. Which we do not set btw...

I feel like my mantra around here is follow the golden rule. And even I have a hard time some days.

"Godwins theory" has just been proven again!


I like it how Pat and Ali call us their "Bumfuzzle friends." Would love to meet them, they sound like really nice people and I wish them all the best.

Never said they lack ethics because they have a different job than me, just said they lack ethics because of the job they hold. There are many jobs other than my own which I respect greatly ,just not that one. Never said anything like scum, just that I don't respect that. The usual tactics of people like this, distort, distort, lie, lie, accuse, accuse. Always trying to make it something it isn't. Funny how even the mods think it's not OK for me to state my opinion, but it's perfectly OK for people like this to make personal attacks as long as they SAY it's not directed at a particular person, even though it clearly is. They even happily join in...
Do you have a Paypal button? Because I'd honestly throw a buck or two your way for that rant. I think you nailed pretty much everyone in a single paragraph. Nicely done.

Re: The Bum(fuzzle)s Are Moving Afloat Again !

Wow, really? Can we stop this now? This belongs over at SailingAnarchy with the 1000Days post. The moderators finally stopped that one, even!

I started the thread in MARCH just to alert interested parties that the Schultes were on the move again, since many sailors might have stopped looking at their blog while they weren't sailing.

So, I'm going to click the "unsubscribe from this thread" and let you guys continue this pointless drivel if you have to!

Re: The Bum(fuzzle)s Are Moving Afloat Again !

I have been following the Bumfuzzle blog for a long time, and enjoy Pat's writing style. I'f also read through this series of posts and realize once again why he stopped following this site. That family is simply out enjoying the water and life. They worry about repair costs to their boat about like I do, and buy parts about like I have had to since I got my new ride in July. I'm guessing most of us will make the investment when the chart plotter or autopilot dies, or when we blow out a sail.
