O-ring once bubbled... What's with this woman who has 35 dives (all PADI training dives - by her own admission) and keeps spewing advice about all the "things she has seen", "what usually happens", and "stupidity"?
Why do GI3 and all the other heavyweights over there agree with her and flame the hell out of other divers that actually put down the keyboard and get out and dive and have legitimate questions? Who is she dating in the WKPP or GUE? Why are there so many ass-kissing cyberdivers over on that board and why is it tolerated?
The more I read quest the more I like scubaboard...
Interesting question Eric. I also noticed that she was getting a bit "big". I think you'll find though, that she's mostly just parroting things she's heard others say and that she will soon drop the ball. When she does, George will jump her just as quick as anyone else.
As for the a$$ kissing, there's been a lot of those types since I joined that list. I still find it a good value though and have learned a lot from it.
Maybe she is that macaw that Joe was talking about...you know, the one that he sent up to VA Beach to get someone squared away on their scooter diving. Maybe the chimp is now taking care of business and the macaw has taken over the keyboard and is posting on quest now..
Do you know if she likes peanuts? That would seal it for me...
We talked about this in our DIR Fund class and JJ said they were considering getting a newbie friendly training oriented list going. I emailed him a while back and he said nothing definite was planned right now. The main deal was trying to find an instructor to monitor it.
At this point I could not say I will renew my 30$/yr. subscription. Most of the stuff is either way over my head, out of my league or just mindless techdiver spillover sewage.
A board like this with a GUE certified instructor would be supreme. Let the divers argue/debate about with someone kind of steering and correcting any errors.
And, um, someone who can do it with a bit of finesse?
Sick of it???? Yea. I think so. I was fairly shocked when I joined up this year at the content of the mailing list. As far as I could tell it was about 98% mindless babble and flame, and about 2% interesting useful stuff. I unsubscribed myself after about 4 weeks of deleting the 98% before reading.
That mailing list is in some serious need of control by the moderator(s). I definately get more DIR-oriented usable info off this board.
