I'd agree with you Jon.Originally Posted by leviathanSydwayz
I think you posted the original 'Teaser' (mid week meet) video on it's own, purely for some sensationalism! you did it in a way so as to cause a large response from people who hadn't seen the finished (final) video, and instigated a witch hunt, with many members 'rounding' on the fool in the video (me). In many cases, simply because they hadn't seen the part 2 vid.
I believe, that when people got to see the part 2, it was clear to most at least, that it wasn't just a thug tearing round the Solent buzzing boats, but an organised video shoot, with all participants in agreement, and clear of other boaters.
I also believe that when you saw the general concensis begin to change, and pass the 50% mark, that it was indeed no more than a harmless video shoot, you pulled the thread to save face!
OSO is a huge 'Global' notice board, you posted one side of a story, which many people saw, and re-linked to their sites, just like the one i've linked to above. But because you pulled the thread, the conclusion was hidden from them. I think this is a very poor show from OSO, and ask that you, or another OSO moderator, re-instate the thread, so that people can make their own mind up! If need be, remove the transatlantic name-calling you say exists in the thread (I don't think there is any, certainly not from me anyway)
I feel i'm now getting very bad press as a result of YOUR posting of my video, and subsequent removal!
Remember, it was YOU who posted it, not me! The video is hosted on my site, because there is a whole thread about the 'mid week meet' video shoot, and the first video of on board footage was a teaser, whilst the final edit was being produced.
The thread can be seen here:
I understand that some (maybe many) will still see the video as foolhardy and bad for fast boating, but I think people should be allowed to draw their own conclusion, and at least they can hear both sides of this story.
so wadda ya say?
