Hey look! My boat!
Seriously, it was awesome to share space with Icon.
I don't think that Bob is doing himself a favour here. In short he is being mean to a man who in his opinion is troubled. That's about as brave as a 6ft athletic guy hitting a small kid. Not the kind of guy I would like to have on board in tricky conditions, only wimps behave like this. The irony meter goes off scale when he calls others snowflakes.
HTFU. Bob is very candid here and shares everything he works on. When some special snowflake attacks him and his work is he supposed to just ignore it? BS has been discredited for every claim he has made by people that know him, now Proa has a cob up his ass and decides to try and work it out here. Not smart and not cool. I have never met Bob but got to know him many years ago on SA and he is the main reason I registered. The FT project was very cool, I also enjoyed Bill Stevens who took tons of shit from posters sometimes because he posted in ALL CAPS. What a bunch of whiny pricks.
I think Proa and BS do have a litany of issues and they need to get help and stop masturbating on a public forum and get help. Proa promotes his expertise on his website which is embarassing as a tech guru should have something better than a 1st year HTML site.
If I were Bob I would tell them to fuck off and come back when they have something to contribute more than whining about how it's all so unfair. The real world isn't often kind and nobody is going to give you your manpon when you insist on just being a little prick (not directed at you).
I am the same person in real life as I am here, witty and humorous to my friends and a big dick to those who aren't. I am certainly not here to make friends or win popularity contest but to learn more and appreciate boat design which Bob graciously shares with all of us. Anyone that doesn't feel that way and chooses to attack Bob will have me doing my best to kick their online butts. If anything isn't perfectly clear don't hesitate to request clarification.
edit: or ignore me which is a handy tool that BS and Proa now reside in.
In case you haven't noticed, Bob isn't the one being attacked, he keeps attacking people and then pretend to be surprised when somebody reacts. Obviously some are going to reply back, that's life, if you keep stepping on people feet eventually you get in trouble.
Oh, good fucking bye already.
