So, what or who is 'dumber', a thread that appears on an internet forum that has obviously generated plenty of interest and participation among forum users, or a person who claims to believe its dumb and not only reads it anyway, but participates with at least two posts of his own?

Humanity is a continuum of billions overlapping births and deaths, with each individual learning about and pursuing his own particular activities. It is a foolish, arrogant, elitist and small-minded twit who takes the attitude that nothing he, a microscopic speck in the overall scheme of things, already knows bears further discussion by others, and on a forum he does not own, to boot.

And I donít prefer to discuss, say, certain fetish porn, but that does not cause me to read a post on that topic then post, not once but twice, about how it does not bear discussion or how offensive it is to ME, ME, ME - that would be foolish, arrogant, elitist and small-minded, no? Itís a big internet out there and one who spouts arrogant disparagements on one hand, but cannot control what he chooses to read on the other... - what else can be said of him?

Only of your posts here in a thread I have recommended to my friend... Are you saying that there are some aspects of human existence that do not bear discussion, even in the face of many who clearly wish to do so, or that YOU, YOU, YOU are in a position to say where and when people may discuss certain points?

It seems the general consensus is that your posts here are far more offensive to most readers here than anything else posted here on a topic clearly of considerable interest to cruising sailors.

Okay, folks, tgzzzz posted without, perhaps, giving it sufficient thought . . . he recognized that and has "taken his lumps" for it. It isn't necessary to continue to berate him for it to make sure he gets the point. He does.

Let's move on, OK? Thank you for your cooperation.

All too funny Mark. Had me rolling. It would be just about enough to make me not care too much about the modesty part and rinse off at the sink in the mens room, whether I had to scurry through the bar or not. But I guess when you got back to the boat you not only got clean but were able to do a change of laundery also. Think of it as having stretched out the soap budget. Two for one, cloths and body. You'll be down to 500/mo in no time! (just don't spend the money on tokens in the first place, bring a jug to the mens room for water instead. It's free)

Keeping clean comfortably aboard can be a challenge, and I'd love to read something new rather than endlessly rehashing and reinventing what sailors and other travelers have been doing since we crawled out of the sea and started sweating.
actualy iv learned from this thread...the exact reason why I started it.
