Beginning to worry

Postby claymore » Fri Feb 22, 2008 1:12 pm

I've noticed that things are slipping here a bit and that we seem to be slipping into the old ways of relative (to YBW) inactivity.
This will affect my commission and so I urge you one and all to revive your flagging spirits. Otherwise I'm going to have to go back over to Skifflebump and fall out with someone else causing another exodus.
Regards
Claymore

:idea: Try the American approach Claymore. post a photo of a kitten with a sailors hat on and you will get 329 replies saying "Thanks for sharing" or you could announce " My goldfish have died" in which case you should get a multitude of "We're praying for you"

That should boost your commission. :D :D

( No offence meant, Americans have always been extremely kind and generous to me when I've met them as cruising folk)

Wind was in the South-West, well a breeze really and I'm berthed in the lee of the high rise homes of the rich and powerful in this fancy marina.

They come out on their balconies, look down their noses and no doubt ask " why on earth are all these boats allowed in here " :D

T'was Springlike for a couple of hours though.

Well, the site owner hardly exudes confidence in his own site. Since February 22, I have noticed that he has made twice as many posts on YBW as he has done here. 8)

Yes a nasty challenge by Shard who came in with his studs, but not really career-threatening so a simple yellow card should suffice..

The site owner has been updating the forum software and tweaking the new yachts for sale section - as well as trying to find time to get some work done for paying clients.

I go to the other place for a little light relief as it is difficult to find an interesting thread to get stuck into here. I hardly think that can be blamed on the site owner - TOP doesn't depend on the moderators to start threads after all.

Can't you just play nicely among yourselves sometimes without me holding your hands?

well I'd hardly be likely to eat in a reataurant where the owner said the fod's crap and he prefers the one next door... would I?

I guess you would call it 'doing a Ratner'

Must admit to losing interest on ybw - there just seems to be too many wanchors on there, these days. There again, maybe some people think I'm one of them :shock:
