A place to vent is wonderful! Lets all try to use this thread to get rid of our stress and complaints so that we can be nice everywhere else. Somehow it all sounds good so far. Lets see where it goes from here then make an informed decision. Who knows, it may even be a good thing. Sodar has done what he thinks is the right thing so before we all blow him off give it at least a sucker's chance.

I would welcome opinions via pm on whether comments in the ads are beneficial. Sodar does more than most even realize for this forum. Whether the new solution is beneficial or not remains to be seen, but he does work hard here. I imagine he would welcome your opinions on how the place can be improved. Don't confuse that with running to him with complaints.

For those who have PM'ed me supporting my decision and complimenting the work I do here, I humbly appreciate it. It means a lot... especially on days like these when old "friends" suddenly make you their worst enemy.

Here is the way I see it. Some guy comes in and posts a for sale ad. Someone with some real interest, likes the boat and opens a thread here asking for people's opinions on the boat.

Now, the membership can have their way with it. Ugly color, price too high, etc, etc. The original poster's for sale ad continues undisturbed for future potential buyers to view the pretty pictures and nicely written ad, while the other thread contains a critique. Everyone is happy and everyone gets what they want.

Thanks, Sodar, for the detailed explanation of your changes. Now maybe there can be a little harmony in the forum again. I think this will give all parties equal time and space to post.

This seems reasonable enough to me. We all know how threads can get carried away, especially in the off season, and would hate to hamper someone's sale due to me/us having some keyboard fun.

I think we should just take the "report a post" icon off and be done with it.
