Confined to Quarters

It appears that the starboard watch (AKA OTDE) has been confined to quarters after the skipper became aware of late night goings on behind the engine room. Scuttle Butt has it that a quarrel broke out over whether*a left hand screwdriver was inherantly*better than the right hand model.

Apparently all the noise*alerted the officer of the watch who in turn*woke the skipper.

To quote Jack Aubrey in 'Post Captain', "I know damned well well what's going on;and I wont have it.I won't have it.*What simple fellows you are, to listen to a parcel of makee-clever sea-lawyers and politicians , glib quick talking coves.Some of you have put your necks into the noose. I say your necks into the noose."

Well, let's see how this works out. There are plenty of posts in the other areas that spin out of control too. But, since there are only two or three members on this forum who know what they're talking about...

I think it was brought on by whomever threw the skippers palm tree overboard. MR. ROBERTS........

I always enjoyed OTDE but most forums I follow don't allow political comments anyway.

One of the things that I have always liked about this forum was that freedom of speech was allowed. It's not like someone is going to reach into their computer and choke a person that they don't agree with. Cursing, extreme crudeness or name calling I won't defend, however.

I was once banned from T&T for posting a notice about selling my boat in the main forum instead of BST. I was new and did not know BST existed. But I was banned anyway. Some other frequenters of this forum are still banned. I hope we don't go there.

RE: Confined to Quarters

As a newcomer, I probably don't rate an opinion, but . . . good riddance.

In other groups I belong to, forums like that always devolve into echo chambers for one political screed or another. *Just the kind of horses**t I go boating to avoid. *

Yes, it's a free country and if I don't like OTDE, I shouldn't click on it and [insert disclaimer here]. *But I've seen the rhetoric get so heated on other sites, it can bleed over and contaminate the forums that are on-topic and actually have value.*

So, assuming the mods don't kill it, is there any way to put an entire forum on my ignore list, so I can preserve the fantasy that the culture wars don't exist in the trawlering world?

I haven't seen it migrate into other sections . well maybe just a tad, but it was self policed.

No one is forcing anyone to do anything. You have to click on the OTDE to access it.

If someone has a problem with it don't go there.

Why is that hard to understand? I don't get it.

If I want PC and censorship, I'll watch the evening news but when I go to a site that I've really enjoyed (and supported with my wallet) I don't need to see "unilateral actions" taken by a moderator that clearly has no clew and is in over his head.

With that said, I will say "goodbye" to all the friends I've made on this site since October 2007. I have your e-mail addresses on my computer and will be in touch. I've also made a copy of this post, in case there's another computer glitch and it gets lost. (I've already had 1 post and a PM disappear.)

RE: Confined to Quarters

Ostrich have a really neat and easy way to hide from reality (not actually true, but often referred to whimsically regarding human actions).* This particular method for obtaining item/circumstance obscurity is never too conducive to seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling... or... I imagine even thinking*clearly.* But, that is the right of any Ostrich... no matter the bread... they can always - - > Stick Their Head In The Sand!!
*
PS: IMHO (this time*I added the H cause I thought it would sound good! - LOL)
*
OTDE threads and posts carried much well debated content and were usually a learning experience for all concerned.* If by our general age group some have not gotten at least a slightly thickened hide then they should keep with reading Superman Comic Books (always my favorite as a child) and stay out of OTDE.* Its really just that simple!*

*Come on Walt. Give it a little more time. You never know how it will turn out. You are one of a few here I can count on for a reasonable approach to most everything. You notice, I said MOST.*
