I appreciate TF. I appreciate the Mods. I appreciate TF members. And, I really appreciate the boating wisdom shared herein.
I don't appreciate people who can't simply stop participating in a thread if they do not like the thread or whom ever is in the thread. There is no law forcing us to read about nor contribute to a thread, or for that matter to even look at a particular post in a thread.
I strongly recommend that if you don't like it... just don't participate in it.
During my decade of membership/marine-contributions I've made mistakes by writing in a post [or two or more] what is against the by-laws and should not be mentioned. At times a mod has taken my post out and thankfully informed me why. Each time that I can recall their reasoning was acceptable. I often PM'd the Mod with apology and a thank you.
It is interesting to read this thread.
