Foe button could be useful, but, it could also spoil a debate. Major problem with it is seeing replies that don't make sense.

No itís fine , it was just a little self editing  LOL

You right the foe/ignore does sometimes spoil a debate a little but it does mean threads continue in some form with out being totally derailed by a troll/trolls.

People have lost their chuckle muscles, you never see people sent for a long wait or a can of striped paint anymore, it's probably bullying now

Very true ,but I worked factories all my life so am old enough to remember apprentices being sent for a Ďlong wait/weight Ď and to be honest the people that did his were mostly A holes .  Smile LOL

Sailed less in last 3m than for decades - but that's a result of a 3m tour of Australia, sadly ending next week. Still managed to sail the Aus RS100 nationals tho. 

This year the flotilla includes a Merlin to go alongside the 100. If grumph could have got over his wood/clinker phobia he could have had a great time stopping the one-string raking control working, never mind the twin poles. It's bimbler's heaven. If only I could tack the blessed thing well.

I'll be continuing to post here if I have anything to say, the topic is interesting or there is a fun tease to be had. I suspect my event write-ups will continue as well although I cannot complete with Mr Bolland for entertainment value on that score.

I used to post a lot, this isnít my first account. 

Gave up because of the fruitless arguments I got drawn into with someone with their own brand of physics and mathematics that are not of this planet. 

I still donít know if they were just playing a game or genuinely believed what they were posting. Either way I eventually concluded it had become a pointless discussion. 

Shame as there was a time when this forum thrived and I got a lot out of it. 

Oh well. All the best.

Just had a look at The Pin End on Facebook. 

Seems it will suffer the same problems that occurred here.

Not really a surprise is it . LOL

Luckily for my blood pressure most of the Ď normal suspectsí have been blocked by me on fb. So I donít get to see those things. Sometimes Mrs Dakota will let me have a look at the Ďfuní stuff if she thinks I will find it funny. Like the D-zero self bailer one  Smile
