The OP first post in this thread is disturbing. He's 38yo, this his what he's been taught, it will apply in any context, to all interactions, not just those on a boating forum.
He started a couple threads, the drive oil hose thread, and the 'I want to run my 17 footer in 3ft waves' thread. He said he had no experience and knew nothing.
But he didn't like the help he was offered, it wasn't what he wanted to hear so..... CSR is an unhealthy environment, full of those that like to 'propagate misinformation', we 'ridicule', we're 'demeaning', we're 'rude' 'abusive' 'bullies'....and we just 'don't like him'. His solution is to block, to cancel, to not let us speak.
Our society is mass producing this kind of 'thinker'.
The boat is C rated. Not rated for off shore but should handle 2-3 ft waves decently.
I am trying to prepare for 3ft seas and avoid anything over that at all costs
If I wasn't so disgusted in this kind of attitude that's now all to prevalent, I'd laugh. One of his last posts "I was showing another member how useless comments can add up in minutes. I made maybe 10 comments in a couple minutes.This is the Cause and Effect of what used to be our Educational System having been turned into a system of Indoctrination. You know, the one where everybody gets a 'participation trophy' and nobody wins because they don't want to hurt the loser's feelings.
Back when we were 'educated' we learned facts, history, logic and how to employ common sense.
Now, those being 'indoctrinated' are conditioned to blindly believe what they are told (Pavlov would be Proud) and are completely unable or unwilling to see facts, history, and logic when they disagree with what they've been told. Common Sense has gone beyond being an UN-Common Commodity, and now seems to be completely MIA.
Oh, and . . .
Whoever just read Proud, and had any rainbow like thoughts, you need to go and look up Pavlov's Dog.
I've thought this over some more...you guys don't know shit, cautioning him on running his boat in 3 footers. His boat is rated class C you know...
