"Hope you never need help when cursing in New England! With your response to his one I don't think many would want you here"
I asked NashuaSteve to respond as to why he posted such a harsh and mean-spirited response. Its been about 30 hours and I haven't heard back so I am bringing this to the group
I had responded to the request for info with the following:
"I just went from Beaufort
to Oriental. There's a big sandbar on the N side of Beaufort sound that is marked navigable. Be careful and stay to the West of it. The only sailing I did was on the Neuse River. The rest was motoring. Have fun. I did it alone (Beaufort to Havre de Grace). The ICW
required great vigilance and the weather
was pretty hot and humid. More wind
would have been nice too."
It seems to me that I offered some navigational information, shared some personal information about my first successful long trip alone and some comments about the ICW. I don't see anything meriting such a cruel response.
What am I missing that would cause such flaming? And why has no one called out NashuaSteve on such cruelness? I read about members being admonished for much less harsh comments. I would like to remain on the cruisers forum, but need some more feedback. Or sanctioning/censuring of NashuaSteve.
Not many in New England
would want me there? I sailed in Northern New England
for 25 years and had no problems! Enjoyed warm lasting friendships and a supportive and friendly community of sailors - whom I believe would be happy to see me back, which I intend to do. And I will ask for assistance with cruising information from them or here as needed - because I don't see that what I said was so horrible. I don't get it. And I don't understand the lack of response from the group.
As for "Hope you never need help when cursing in New England!" - I lived in Northern Vt, and Southern NH and sailed Lake Champlain and the NH and Maine
seacoast. And I never needed help with cursing, Steve.
In fact, Steve, GO **** YOURSELF.
