Re: Sea Mile to Number of Posts Ratio

madonna and lady gaga both make my ears itch. not my cuppatea musically.
humans are humans it is only those who practice differentiation(with a bias) who care at all what is what. think about that a moment.

Burning question. Is there a cure?

As the famous philosopher, Madonna said..... I was born this way......

So let's round up the overly verbose. The hypergraphics. And all those who just like to chat and run them out of town. After all. Chatting on a chat board is the last thing we want to see.

I have it. Let's rank the posters. Those who have never sailed, they can ask one question every 3rd day of the master sailors. Those who have sailed in the past but are not cruisers and who live and work on land, they can ask a question every 3rd day and once a week express an opinion. But while expressing an opinion they must show due respect and deference to those that out rank them on the board. A certain amount of groveling is expected.

Those who sail late afternoons or weekends but live on land, they can post a question every second day while being able to express an opinion twice a week. But also like the lower ranks they too must show groveling deference to those above.

Those cruising sailors who motor most of the time down the east coast and spend every season motoring around the Caribbean, they can post three questions a week. Questions like where do I find the jib? Is it in the luff compartment? along with similar questions while being allowed to make three comments a week.

Those who have spent more than a year owning and captaining a power vessel without sails commonly called a motor boat. They will have no rights to post for at least a year. But they can read everyone else's posts so they can contribute later. Hopefully after a year of reading posts they will be able to answer where the luff is stored.

Now we come to the difficult ones. The marina hopers who think they are cruisers. The ones who have new big sailboats who spend most of their time tied up at a marina drinking gin and tonics on their impressive looking SV or sitting in the yacht club. It is very debatable if they should be allowed to post at all.

Then you have the long distance ocean goers who spend most of their time drinking and picking up backpackers in different ports to take them on a journey for money. Since they are most all ways drunk and unable to type I'm not sure if we even need to have a category for them.

Then you have the floating gypsies, the well to do who hire captains and crew, the livaboards on vessels that never leave a marina.

So many categories and sub categories my head is spinning not knowing who should be allowed to post and who shouldn't.

I do know one thing. Jim and Anne should post as much as they can. Others who are the quite achievers who have been sailing for years. The true sea salts who have experienced more then what what has written in the books in sailing.

OK the techies should also post as much as they want because technology is changing and systems are complex. A lot to keep with. Then the ones who know how to strip down an engine while also knowing how to repair a split diaphragm on a pump. Always great contributors.

As for me I have no right to post. Having learned to sail on hobby cats as a young one. Then handling the ropes on large ocean racers in the Pacific Ocean. But I sunk to the depths of owning a motor yacht and haven't hoisted a mainsail in years.

So I should be ashamed of myself. Thinking that it is OK for me to be so verbose and chatty on a chat forum. How silly of me.

I should just go and sit in a corner like so many others who have been bullied and be quite. After all, what on earth could a women like me ask about sailing and cruising. Just stupid questions is all.

I would suggest if as indicated by the title of this thread that it is OK to go down an elitist path then think about all the categories and sub categories of people who visit this forum. I am sure you can come up with your own wonderful rules and method of classification of others so your own ego can feel superior.

Hypergraphia?

Look who is talking!

BTW: Lady Gaga.

Yep..I'll trade you my Delta Million Miler for your United and we should both fly less and sail more...

I've also about had it with the two forum members who can't play nice together...they should both put each other on their Ignore Lists and spare the rest of us the drama. Or the Moderators should send them to the principals office and give them a time out.

I don't think anyone, including me, have ever told you to sit in a corner. There are many levels of humility. It's not sit in a corner or being a sensationalist. My first year here I had probably 100 posts until I became comfortable and made friends with a few members. Since I have been more of a technical person, found my way in conversations about boat related repair. Eventually slipping into some of the more humorous and social threads, like goats sailing and bucket threads.
Heck buy a boat and get out there and enjoy life.

IMHO quite the opposite. This is a forum, a public space, an 'agora', a Speakers' Corner.

Everyone can post what they want and as much as they want, as long as we stay withing the boundaries set in the:

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ork&page=rules
and
http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...twork&page=tos

!

The name of the forum tells it all: CRUISERS. So it is not just about sailing (which is hardly ever a subject) or boat building and maintenance (which is at times the subject). It is foremost a social media place:

Social Knowledge - Online Community Network

How can one have a social media website without all the social chatter?

Sex, videos, healthy foods, pets, kids, ex-wives and Peter Pan syndrome ...

Either this is a forum or else en elitist English club with its males and their miles.

Love,
b.

Ha ha...Jersey Dave created a thread years ago about having a goat which was circumnavigating. It was soooo hilarious! Wait...are you that goat?

What total PC dogs bollocks.
Even in this ridiculous PC world its not that Orwellian that the thought police wont let you enjoy a song that has been appropriated by some group as an anthem.

Nor is it behoven on us to understand the inner workings of some acronym like LGBTQ or to even know what the letters are, let alone mean.
Yes we are expected to have tolerance and give oportunity to all people and all groups. However that does not mean I need to know, nor care, what a CIS Transgender Male is. I have gay friends, many. I have no transgender friends and i doubt i would in the future as they dont appear to move in the circles I do.
I am certainly not wasting my time googling this stuff. There is some fleeting wonder to know that a 'transgender male' is. It it a birth male thats now female, or a birth female thats now male. Pre op or post op or arnt we allowed to ask that question?

Anyway, its rediculous to start expecting that a few people over 50 years old on a sailing forum should suddenly be positively excited by something they have only seen on a trendy kids TV show, or read about in the papers.
Its this mad PC stuff thats formed Brexit and Trumpism as a reaction.

You nailed it Amigo...
But the truth is that in the PC Social Warrior's eyes you are the problem and responsible for why they can't seem to get a good job with their gender studies degree with a minor in ethnic struggles and $80K in student debt. You need to be made to pay for your patriarchal heterofacism...give them a safe space because the real world is kicking their asses and they are ill-equipped to survive and feed themselves, again, your fault.
