Thanks, Cap, but I'm not really that stylish.

No, I went away because Peep started blocking my posts until I proved I was a cruiser.

Apparently I violated some unwritten protocal of "the friendliest site for cruisers and full time live aboards on the web" (according to the registration email we all received) .

...well, and the vitriol and idiocy of PMs from Peep and others I was receiving.

"Spammer!"

"You're not a cruiser. Blah, blah, blah..."

"Prove it."

I'm old and I'm tired and have little time for jackbooted mods, xenophobes or kneejerks who think they are getting screwed by anyone who walks in.

Gracious, user "only_me", please do contribute to the forums where you can do so but please don't take things down into the basement.

Cruiserlog has a long history of oddity posts from non-cruisers who are only seeking opportunity for advertisement of their own products, services, and so forth. It's a simple fact and we have a long history of asking people to identify their relationship to a product, service, and what their own interest in cruising is. For some reason, that really bugged you.

Most non-cruising people 'fess up and just say "I'm not a cruiser, but I think my product will really interest cruisers" and we're glad of that. Others are genuine cruisers or other boaters who also have a product they'd like to peddle here. Since you left as Wada, we now have a forum for commercial vendors to place information about their products here Marine Industry Vendors - Cruiser Log World Cruising & Sailing Forums and that has helped clear up things when vendors would like to share their wares but really don't want to contribute to the cruising forums.

I do recall a less-than-positive series of PM's from you, as Wada. It was certainly an odd bit of communications, I do recall that. I was glad that Wada disappeared and stopped with the PM's to me directly. Life goes on and so does the forum. If you can contribute positive things here, please do so. If you'd like to spit at people, please take that somewhere else--but not in a PM to me, please. It doesn't belong here.

PS--I didn't have the ability to block you from posting as Wada. We do sometimes "invisible" an inappropriate post while we contact the author and ask if that's what he really meant to say. Typically, those things work out and the author continues on posting here. Perhaps site admin did block your account at the time. If you would like to start making contributions to the forum as Wada, I'll research your old account for you and see what I can do to resurrect it if you have forgotten your log-in email, etc. Its always best to keep your original preferred username.

Fair winds,

You can assume, only_me is the same character as Wadda, with nothing to base it on except the first post from a new account. Amazing feat really.

But someone provides a link (Navigatrix.net) to a free open source operating system created by, and benefits cruisers and you go all Spanish Inquisition.

It is indeed a funny world.

Check out the system; leave revisionist history for the choir.

The Navigatrix Community has pretty good support too.

(psst....I don't even live on a boat and I use it. Yes, it's that good.)

Thanks, Joe, I'll pass that along. But I have it straight from the horse's mouth the blog was done by the crew as the captain is incapable. Red over red; the captain is dead.

Well, he not dead...just incapacitated in all things blog.
