    One of them is all about split fins suck.....actually that reminds me of here in 2008.

    As positive as you sound, that's not necessarily protection against ransomware or legal threats. I'd hope you have shared/offline backups of public stuff (non-PMs, private account info, etc.) to give to people. Archive.org only goes so far.

    Split-fins, Shearwater, PADI, etc. Same old jokes repeated for ages. Gets cringey after the 15th post about why divers roll backwards off of boats.

    Thank you, OctoHelm! I've noticed that some voices in here make me feel very fond of them too. I want to keep hearing them. And though not every section or thread on the board interests me, the others do interest me endlessly. So much to learn!

    I see you got you account fixed. I remember a FB post saying you were having issues, just don't ask me to find that post.

    As for scuba board there is a lot of good information here. Unlike FB groups this site is actually organized and searchable.

    Also a good place to find locals to dive with.

    Thanks for all the work you guys do to keep this great resource up and running. I'm happy to pitch in..... Hell, if it wasn't for this site I might still be risking my life in split fins :shocked:
    CHEERS :cheers:

    Unfortunately, this is no longer true. The mods do emphatically moderate for content, specifically Colliam7 & sleepy in Canada (or something like that). Colliam has also been snotty to me as well. I just wanted the Chairman to know that I carefully considered sending some money your way. But, having been burned repeatedly after supporting some forum, I was waiting to collect experience here before doing so. Now I can't see how I could support scubaboard financially.
