Naughty Cal and other vitriolic types continue to post over there ... yet some of our members are banned.
You couldn't make it up.
I wouldn't bother anyone posting over there ... as Arthur Marshall says, they all visit here anyway
The offensive nature of her vacuous posts is of the least concern, . . . the value, soundness, and the possible consequences of the advice she dispenses is entirely another matter. It fluctuates from the worthless to the downright dangerous, and below is just such an example from redfox226's recent CWDF thread :
"We usually wait 15-20 minutes after the tide has turned before we set off from the anchorage to give us plenty of water.", . . which, as I've explained on page 2 of this thread, is NOT the right course of action to take in the circumstances described as it merely serves to increase the already very real risks of being set onto the outer end of a sandbank and rolled over by the incoming tide as it gathers pace.
She has been lucky enough to escape serious incident or harm during a few seasons weekend boating on the Ouse, Trent and Humber in a relatively shallow draughted boat with enough power and speed to keep out of, or get out of, most potentially dangerous situations, and is now mistaking that luck for ability and know-how gained through experience. Fine, were she content to keep her thoroughly bad advice to herself, but clearly that's a pretty forlorn hope.
Despite the training wall and a mini-lighthouse called 'Apex Light' which is situated at the end of the wall, navigation at Trent Falls is not simple. There are no real waterfalls, but there is a very rapid race of water at difficult stages of the tide (especially spring tides), and there is a tidal bore on the Trent (the Trent Aegir). Boats coming down one river with an ebbing tide often have to wait several hours (sometimes beached on the sand, and sometimes overnight) until the tide turns and the flood can carry them up the other river.
Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.
I hope that I never become famous and someone trawls my contributions on this site looking for the odd post which may be offensive.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
