Yesterday I came back to the marina slip after, well something for a different story.
Right after I docked at night one of my dock
mates that I hadn't met before (I've been here a month) stopped on his way back from dog walking to tell us we had our running lights on (yeah had only just pulled in and were putting lines etc on). During talking a while he out of nowhere asks "Are you on CF?", to which I reply yes. Then he says "Are you Sailorboy?", which I again answer yes.
Now this has happened numerous times now out of the blue and it amazes me sometimes, and at other times it creeps me out like I'm being stalked by internet
forum pervs. The conversion continues and I ask him his user name, because maybe I want to read how crazy the guy down the dock
is, and he saids "I don't have one and just read it".
So here's the point, now listen up lurkers:
You need to get a username etc. and start posting
your our crap crazy thread questions and answer questions like the settee experts we all are. I've been here a while (before I have ever stepped foot on a sailboat) and only have a limited number of crazy crap and reponses left in me. If you lurker newbies don't step up this place will continue down the endless "be nice only" posts and lose it's entertainment value (and that's the reason we all are mostly here). If you don't my crazy posts stand out and even though they aren't nothing compared to the fun of CF back say 5 years ago, I get a warning or strike for hardly anything to my mind because I was here "way" back and that's how I think of the place.
We need your crazy male cow fecal matter (see how I have to be PC) to keep the place going and I need the cover sometimes.
Get with it you gutless lurkers!!!!!
