I believe all of the above and then some. I have NEVER met or spoken to ANYONE willing to help like Fred.

Too many posts are missing or deleted to know the whole story. I did see a quote aimed at Fred that was TOTALLY inappropriate. That is NOT was OSO was designed for. OSO is supposed to be beneficial and most of all; FORKING FUN! I really hope we see Too Old back soon, as I for sure would miss his input.

I have no idea whats going on but i will say that the first time i met Fred i considered him a class act, stand up kind of guy. I as well as others consider him a friend and an asset to this board.
I have told many members here from this board that i have met through out the years that the only problem with a forum such as this, is that you cant tell the "feelings" of how someone was trying to post something. (Not sure on how that last line came across either myself! ) My point is that what someone may write on this board jokeingly someone else may read it all wrong and get the wrong idea. I for one have never taken anything anyone has said to me personaly. And unless i'm face to face with someone and can hear for myself how they are saying it to me i wont take anything seriously!

I remember my first posts which, by their nature, ignited a ****storm. The context was a joke that I deemed inappropriate and I let Risk Taker (the joke starter) known it. As the newbie, I was called very name in the book. As an attorney, I gave it right back (in spades, I believe). Too Old leant his voice of reason to the thread and quickly demonstrated the moderate, knowing wisdom that we have all come to admire and upon which many of us rely. The mandate to Fred in the Pantera thread that began with "shut" and ended with "up" was unwarranted and disrespectful. This Board attracts many different people, all of whom contribute in different ways to the OSO family. I have discovered through reading different posts and threads that you are more often rewarded on OSO for insightful opinions than for colorfully worded attacks on others. I do not now, nor have I ever owned a boat. I aspire to own one soon and hope that people like Fred are available to me on this forum when I need their sage advice. To run him off this Board with unnecessary personal attacks is short-sighted and immature.

I talked to Dominic the owner of the mentioned boat and he is a nice guy, all he wants to know is a completion date on his boat, he likes Joe and his family but is getting alittle nerveous because of the money he has commited. Custom made boats always seem to take longer than expected, and as for TOOO Old you should take your geritol and shut the f*&k up, this is an open form. The only thing I will agree with you on is that the owner should post a thread , and bashing unless you have the facts or written goods to share gets you no where
