Zatara Thread???

What happened to the Zatara Bashing thread I was reading a week ago where everyone was saying what horrible hillbilly typical Americans they are. Funny, because the video I just watched with him and two Fijian government officials wasn't filmed with him in a jail cell or wearing handcuffs. Actually they all seemed to be very cordial as they explained how welcome Zatara was and all other cruisers who follow the format they discussed. I didn't comment last week after all of the horrible things written about them on this forum because it seemed like the usual bench warmers bashing Americans. A favorite past time of many Europeans on here. Next time your country is a jam remember what horrible rude people we are and don't ask for our help. What a joke.

The umbrage was over the dirty wake not the nationality

sure, but if I had a dollar everyone said "typical American," or even more ridiculous, made reference to Zatara's perceived attitude and President Trump. Some people truly are unhinged.

If you did, you'd be completely broke.


Another one reading what's not there.

Please provide one link to a post in any of the Zatara threads that says "typical american".

Google found one such reference. This thread!

The only unhinged ones around here are those who take offense at the criticism of "dirty wakers" on the basis of shared nationality.


Ah, I just realised. You're also the poster who took umbrage at all the " self proclaimed progressives" in the earlier thread where you were the only person who used the word "progressive"

You really should stop putting words into other peoples' mouths.

Re: Zatara Thread???

It may come as a shock to you but most of the posters on the Zatara threads are 'strayans and kiwis..... we normally prefer to put the boot into the germans ( the deckchair business ) and the french ( the fenders thing ) .... the only reason an american has recently been in the frame is because of their attitude while guests in NZ... nada mas.

What's the fenders thing? I thought that kiwis didn't like the French because of bombing the rainbow warrior? Me, I'm a pom so wasn't here then...

Israel is the only country where they use wire strops and padlock their fenders to the guard wire,the french are lightweights by comparison to the Israelis
