Did you continue to post, or do you still post on that forum, Larry?

I continued to post, and was a member for a couple of years. I didn't want one bad egg to spoil the benefits I could ( and did ) get from being a member. It came to a point where I got all the info I needed for the level I wanted to achieve. Kayaking is fun, and I still do it , but its not a passion of mine, like cooking and gardening are. So now, I rarely fever pay it a visit.

yup Larry... every forum has a know-it-all and an a-hole... most times they are the same person...

but..... the enjoyment we receive from interacting with the majority of a group makes that one person seem totally insignificant...

Agree 100% but could be intimidating to a newby or a lurker hesitant to make that first post.

Kayaking is great fun, although I almost drowned trying to learn to eskimo roll. But that was in a skirted 'yak.

I've also been followed around in an open top ocean kayak by a small shark off the beach of Sanibel Island.
Had to change my shorts after that one,

Back on topic, the thing that I've heard far too often on forums is "Google is your friend."

Besides the wisdom and sage advice of experienced folks, the raison d'etre for a forum is the human interaction.

Couldn't agree with you more.
Anyone could google anything. Thats the easy way out, and in some cases , a last resort.

But when I come to a forum and ask advice, what i'm hoping for is the experience and wisdom of others to help answer my question or guide me through a situation. We all have different backgrounds, experiences, family histories ....and also a personal connection. Googling is sometimes necessary, but getting the answers and opinions of people you've learned to know, respect and trust is more valuable ( at least to me, anyway).

I just responded to a new member with an odd screen name and unusual question. It will be interesting to see if he/she is another one-hit wonder. Hmmmm.

What, respond? What's wrong with that? I posted an honest response.
