Making fun of an adult doesn't actually make YOU an adult. In fact, making fun of anyone makes you an asshole.

Everybody needs to calm down a little here and stop acting like a bunch of schoolyard bullies who only have the balls to pitch in when there's a group standing around them. Here are some facts:
  • Someone made a bad decision in a panic. OK, fine - I doubt anyone else on this thread has ever done that.
  • He made some outlandish claims about conditions. Again, not something you EVER find on THT, particularly with respect to wave height.
  • He's kind of a tool on Facebook. Uh huh, him and 90% of the people on there.
  • He seems to be something of a dishonest, perhaps even criminal braggart. The rest of us are pure as driven snow, giving us every right to root around in someone else's life, make assumptions and then fling accusations of course. Incidentally, how many of you, when faced with someone saying "you shouldn't be afraid of surveillance if you've done nothing wrong" instantly fight back with "that's not the point! Think about how people can concoct accusations based on limited evidence!"
  • He has or does not have a brother who seems very angry and can't type. Let's all air family dramas on here, shall we? See how people can get the wrong idea when they have 5% of the information about your personal relationships.
  • He came on here to explain, with circumstances that might have got any inexperienced boater freak out a little. After clamoring for him to come here and explain he was then further attacked - did you want him on here to find out the truth or to get off on a more direct attack?
  • He has a girlfriend/wife who cooks food, and as we all know anyone with breasts must instantly photograph them and show them to THTers and subject themselves to all kinds of puerile and in any other circumstances illegal harassment.
Just ask yourselves if any of you would still have a job if you had made any of these comments in your workplace about a colleague. Then go ask yourself whether you feel like your comments have crossed a line in the heat of the mob-induced moment sitting behind keyboard.

I'm not defending the guy, and not pointing any specific fingers. But take a breath here and grow up. Or are most of you actually 12 year old fat kids with issues at home taking it out on the kid with glasses?

"You cannot tie up here." is not the same as "You should run your boat aground over there at that public park."
Just sayin'

I think the driveshaft beating explains that sweet set of dentures he is sporting. Blondie looks a tad bit crosseyed, she may have got the shaft also?

This IS an interesting insight into human nature. Name calling, false assumptions, lack of experience.

Besides I get paid big bucks for stirring the pot....
Somebody is bankrolling you to keep this thread going?? And we were thinking you were a McGrawth....

Nothing at all as long as it doesn't turn you into a bully. I speak from the experience of being bullied at school by a 12 year old fat kid

I am sorry, this is the funniest thing I have have read on this thread. I thought it was going to end with: "OK, maybe this guy is a total asshat."

No, you are not a troll just because you disagree with the overwhelming majority.
I think you are more of a contrarian, which is brought about by a strong sense of skepticism, which is brought about by working on cars (and their owners) for a living.
Carry on, sir.

I might have to make this my new sig line. "[P]uerile and in any other circumstances illegal harassment". Priceless.
Lighten up, Professor Wetblanket.
It's all just internet banter.
Last I checked, anybody who doesn't wanted to be subjected to our concocted allegations and puerile harassment is free to simply not participate in a thread.

Yeah, bullshit. He is bragging that he is rich and therefore special. That alone justifies every drop of abuse he is getting. If he doesn't like it, he can simply delete his THT account and all the criticism is magically silent. Or, unsubscribe from this thread. Same for you.

By any chance did you grow up in Ohio and know Mathewmc? Hope you didn't get one of his spitballs, whacked with a driveshaft, or Shawshanked out of lunch money by his brother.
