You are as bad as each other but at least GRF does it with a sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye, and are done to promote discussion.  Your posts often just seem bitter and unpleasant.  

But where on FB has the discussion gone?

Guys, I closed it for one simple reason - Facebook is a f**king menace to society, not Grumpf.

I only have an FB account for a couple of work related things and the dinghy bits selling group Russ and I set up.

Enjoy the forum - it's quant & quintessentially old school; rammed with nostalgia and has a few 'characters' among the regular folks to keep it spicy on occasion.  You couldn't make an 'online sailing club' quite so in keeping with its real world equivalents if you tried.

Do yourselves a favour, delete Facebook off your phones for starters....

Y&Y shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence has that juvenile rubbish, most of sensible posters are the same sensible posters off here.
(juvenile rubbish = SA)

Hmm, maybe you need some help, nothing like a bit of self delusion and self love to ward off the glums, have you tried all year round open water swimming, lots of guys locally find it an excellent panacea for their 'mental health'.

Christ I'd never have gotten into a dinghy if I hadn't deluded myself that I was more than capable and quite honestly if you don't love yourself, other than your dog, who else is there to totally rely on?

I'm actually a tad unhappy to read that, all joking aside, but it does answer a lot of my thoughts on why you could be so mean to me... the perfect being.

I do try to menace society, honest. I must admit I miss that what was it called again 'Sailing Jihad?', I doubt they'd let you call it that these days, they gave me a 24 hr posting ban just because I just that word that rhymes with crikey to describe our travelling brethren.

Well in a way, that would vindicate your POV in that the only ones left are those that can tolerate/ignore/get, the shall we say quirky style of my 'posts'. Then again folk come on forums like this for lots of reasons, some with questions, some wishing to give answers, some for the banter, some to satisfy sponsors, some to alleviate boredom, but one thing this forum is relatively clear of, that i do like, is the lack of 'politics' , Brexit, etc that is so endemic everywhere else, so maybe some of us just come to get away from the reality of day to day life, so I would say to you, don't go, without somebody championing the cause of 'decency' and reigning in excess, that I do admit to being guilty of at times, it would degenerate.

I'm sure there are lots more watching than post and lots that would agree with your position that maybe are not 'thick skinned' enough to call me to task.

PS that doesn't mean I wouldn't call you a half wit to your face, I've done it twice today already to snowflakes I have to deal with in real life.

Bike sheds still on then, used to be smoking and fighting there at my school, you tended only to fight until you finished up on the floor, then someone would shout 'pile on' and they would be crushed under loads of lads.
