Yeah, why do they delete a post by Mr Intensity about the prices of sails that was totally relevant to the discussion, but allow blatant advertising by Boathouse and Sturgis, not to mention undercover arguments in favor of the huge markups on sails by employees of North and Vanguard?
The problem is that when they start to restrict free speech they don't know where to stop. I see they've deleted your posts about irrigation devices now... and quite right too. Totally off topic.
As we all can be. Perhaps Old Geezer doesn't realize he's not a joy to all of us. So here goes, and this is well intentioned: Old Geezer, I appreciate your serious posts, and sometimes you are funny, but when you attempt to be "clever," it usually comes off as cruel. The cruelty also comes off as intentional since you choose to be anonymous. If what you have to say is truly humorous, you should be able to stand by it under your own name. You have choices here.
And my posts are not off topic, because seemingly, trying to reason with you guys is pointless.
