WetSnail, I don’t want to make any basis of authority; I should answer you with a changed acronym of KISS – „keep it simple, stupid“: “It’s physics, stupid”. I am not looking for authorities and never will be. People with unorthodox ideas are always welcome and of course they are even more welcome to try them out.
When they are not successful perhaps they should better listen to those who have more ‘raw data’ and more experience. I never wanted to tell him what to do, and certainly I don’t want to give him money to build a boat for me.
I build my own boats.
And I would love him to be right with his ‘new idea’, but unfortunately he is not. He has nice advice from ‘foiledagain’ and ‘harryproa’ and others, but he is not interested. He is obviously not able to take any criticism.
When I commented him on YouTube: that he had mixed Michael Schacht’s old idea of the Spinnaclaw with a Junk sail, and that he scared away Jo Oster off his last thread in Sailing Anarchy, and stated: ”I wish you best of luck for your crowdfunding, but I doubt that you will be very successful.” he was mortally offended and answered me: “…There are details in this comment that are YOUR OPINION. I think your personal opinion about my actions ("scared away Jo Oster", or how successful this crowdfunding will be...) should have been kept between us in the email you sent me earlier. NOT in this forum, where others reading YOUR OPINION! may jump to wrong conclusions.” And then he blocked me and deleted my comments.
I don’t know if generally the people in Bulgaria are educated in this absolutely antidemocratic way, but I doubt it! Or it is just him who takes any kind of criticism so bad and acts in such a incomprehensibly way. I for my share cannot accept such behavior.
He is a swashbuckler and a whisk, and people should know it; people should be able to read all comments and come to their own conclusions.
Rael is using the ‘royal we, or majestic plural (pluralis maiestatis)’ in his ridiculous Mayday post, which is definitely under the belt and shows furthermore who is here the BUMMER!
I don’t think there is any more opinion needed in this matter.
Have a nice day
