CSR has 25,000+ members now. That's good, AND bad. I remember when this club had few members, and it was a very entertaining, fun, and a generally a great place to learn about Sea Ray boats. I figure CSR has grown into how this country is. Too dang Politically Correct! The members whom used to contribute good quality commentary, are far too quiet, due to having the fear of stepping on someones toes. It always seems the person who lurks the most, only comes out to call out someone on their view point. It's disappointing that the few, can have so much power over the many, that want to have a good time. We need folks that can understand scarcasm, and the difference between a joke, opinion, and fact. It's a shame that everytime I log into CSR, to read something and be entertained, I'm more and more disappointed. There are so many folks that either like or dislike say....Gary (Four Sons), I personally like his scarcasm and style of humor. He has lit into me more than a few times, but heck it's still funny. If you go back and read older posts of his, they were not attack threads. They were entertaining, you can learn something from posts. Like the bubba burger thread. It's only been since the new generation of members that ride his butt about "stuff" that he has regressed into defending himself. I know that seems backward to most here, but I bet anyone who knows the old Gary, understands what I mean. Let him free, and if you don't like what he has to contribute, DON'T READ IT! Frank W. is a great guy. All he wants to do is help people with issues, we have with our boats. He saves people ALOT of money whenever he picks up his keyboard and types. He is a great asset to this club. BUT Frank is very different than Gary. Frank is much more to the point, direct, dry. But I have seen the post where his sence of humor will poke out. My point is, when you read Gary's stuff, it's tounge in cheek. When you read Franks stuff, you need to write it down, and then also read the message from either one, with that in mind! All the folks in between, are varying degrees of personalities. Some you may agree with some maybe not so much. This is important.........YOU DON"T HAVE TO AGREE WITH EVERYWORD SOMEONE POSTS TO LEARN SOMETHING FROM IT! I say, lets stop being so critical of/with each others comments, and take them for what they are worth and stop trying to turn this place into your own sand box. Maybe then we can get back to some of the more entertaining threads we USED to have here. Even the head cheese here is tired of breaking up cry babies, and people fighting over what he said or she said.....it's tiresome for the mods also. Good job by the way Chuck, It's a thankless job you do, and the pay sucks, I hear! haha (now see that's called a joke). I miss the days of friendly banter back and forth. The kidding with each other, and specially the technical knowlege that we have lost because, people that know things, don't want to have to defend their written word because they can't spell, or what ever reason! (my writing style sucks). It's gotten so very quiet around here, I know, people are on their boats enjoying themselves.......give me a break. If it weren't so PC around here, threads would be showing up like fire. People couldn't wait to get back and post what they did over the weekend, or share what happened to them and what to watch out for. It's a shame. Of course this is MY OPINION, hence I put this in the blog section. If you agree with me great, lets enjoy CSR. If you don't agree with me......I really don't care. Don't read what I have to say anymore. Better yet, click in that ignore box that has my name in it, I guess if you did that you wouldn't have read this and would not have been offended! haha Enjoy your day, I will mine!
