Kudos, Scot.

Belly lint!! I'll have to remember that!!

Thanks again,

"Thanks, Scot." he says. All ready the section is poluted with a non-boating subject.

Good move Scot! This will help a bunch. And what everyone else said(except Norm, he's such a smart alleck ;) ).


10-19-2002, 11:16 AM
Yep, good move, Scot, although Norm's belly button lint is already showing. Wooden boats forever; now, does that make this legal? :D

Thanks from one of the silent majority (and a Miscellaneous boycotter)--a great compromise. And what they all said too!

Thankyou Scott! ;)

BTW what are the "rules" here?
When does a subject belong in the "other" MISC section?

Do naval and sea rescue stuff belong here for instance?

Or just stuff wooden?

A great move. Heartfelt thanks.

Or just stuff wooden?Brian I'm going to assume if it is boat releated and don't fit in the other 3 it goes here. Navel and sea rescues certainly belong here (although I can't imagine my navel getting in enough trouble to warrent rescuing). I also think that building updates should be here and Building should be left for building questions.


10-19-2002, 04:38 PM
From me too! Thanks for all your work keeping the place running.......virtually....and thanks for not pulling non boat Misc! smile.gif

10-19-2002, 04:40 PM

Thanks, Scot.

READ THRU ALL THE THIS....nuthin' here I can read about MISCELANEOUS RELATED BOAT STUFF...NUTHIN!.....lets get on with it!

MISC BOAT RELATED QUESTION: With all the news about ice melting everywhere..and now Kilamajaro!..150 foot thick ice to melt in the next 20 years after being there for thousands of years!...any guesses on what year/month Noah's Ark will finally be revealed in all its glory?There may be a reward for the winner here.. :D

Belly lint can be annoying.....Scot can you reverse the Misc listing order..and maybe put the unrelated section way down the bottom? :D

THAAAANNNKS A WHOLE BOOOOOAT LOAD!!!!SCOT!!!!! smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif (8 limit)

Scot: Thanks for hearing the voices (and not freaking out!) I was actually going to suggest something similar; AVSIG does this with their HOT SECTION. So I think this will help if by nothing else shunting the touchy topics off into their own padded room. And if folks get out of hand, warn them and then shut them out for a week! David

10-20-2002, 05:55 AM
And a big Nautical "Goodonyer" from me!

10-20-2002, 07:50 AM
I notice this morning that the order has been changed nicely too.

Thanks again!

Yes, thanks a bunch. We may have to modify it again to also read, Non-boat related and the "As the World Turns" according to Dingo, translated by who knows when he returns. It may turn into the first edition of his new book if we work it just right.

I think this fits the new catagory with this international forum.

Thank you. :D :D :D :D

10-20-2002, 10:32 AM
I was gonna suggest bilge water for that other section but I guess that would be a bit boat related.

What will be will be....


10-20-2002, 11:02 AM
GREAT.....SCOT!.....for reversing the Misc Sections Listing order....I can sleep now. smile.gif

10-20-2002, 11:47 AM
Thank you Scot, now I don't need to take a shower after wading through the Misc. section. It was getting pretty deep and ripe over there..


10-20-2002, 11:54 AM
Hi Scot...can I ask for one more little change to

Misc Unrelated....

I doubt if you can but it would be so nice to but it waaaay down the bottom ...outta sight outta mind..so one is obliged to scroll down for a half hour... :D

Thanks again for reversing the two...somehow it looks, feels much better...

10-20-2002, 07:46 PM
So now there are six sections and I can ignore the sixth. ??.


Wrong solution! I don't mean to be contrarian, seeing as the problem was very few members were flooding the forum with nonsense, angry responses.

I'm a little ashamed by this.

Open discourse never destroyed anything.


10-20-2002, 09:04 PM
Thanks Scot

Best outcome in the circumstances. The retention of a separate 'Misc-non boat related' gives the opportunity for a a bit of a browse thru the mindset of an interesting group of people. For a non - american it provide an insight to how you do (or don't) think, ranging from the wise, erudite and humourous to the far less wise, less erudite and unfunny.

Posters, please keep it polite.


10-20-2002, 10:23 PM
But...but...hey! Hold on a second. Where does all this change leave King Funky Chicken, the ruler of Miscellaneous? Is he now to rule over the Two Kingdoms? Or just one; in which case, which one? I don't believe he was even consulted about the shakeup. He must have learned about it through the grapevine, since in his last presentation by Memphis Mike he seems to have increased the energy of his dance (if that's what it is). These are weighty questions that must be addressed. Remember, the book guy, the little green monster and various trolls are waiting in the wings, and some difficult decisions may be upon us before we know it.

10-21-2002, 06:49 AM
A big THANK YOU from me too Scot!! smile.gif

10-21-2002, 11:59 AM
I was wondering if bellybuttonlint can be used to substitute for calking cotton in a pinch.

Thanks, Scot.

10-21-2002, 12:18 PM
Kermit: Only if it's well washed and free of fat.

10-21-2002, 12:20 PM
Thanks Scot.

Naval lint clearly belongs in this section, bellybutton lint discussions belong in the other. In either case, save that stuff. You can have a fine sweater knitted to snuggle with this Winter.

What an elgeant solution. Should be enduring too. Very Wooden Boaty. Well doe Scott.

Now, can we run a book on how long it takes for Building and repair to overtake Misc, non-boat? Its a couple of years I think sicnce Misc got ahead of Bldg, and the rot set in. Hm, maybe this should be over in non-boat? Sorry.
