It seems that Les Hall is monitoring this thread, and I think that's great. I would more than welcome him here on OSO and discuss various issues. It is very easy to comment on how posts are edited and deleted on www.BoaterEd.com . It just doesn't make sense (to me). Since we can't discuss it on www.BoaterEd.com without opinions being.........uh.....modified? Perhaps we can discuss it here Les?
Believe me, this thread is not to be cute or entertaining, but to be informative as to the methods and actions that I've seen on your Boating Education and Safety forum. I do post numerous thread with that in mind, but this is not one of them. It just doesn't make sense to omit links that might help a person, especially with regards to boating safety. No single web site can deliver all the information available about boating. OSO realizes this, as well as most other sites. Perhaps there is some “bad blood” between BoaterEd and OSO that I’m not aware of.
Happy and Safe Boating!
