wow such a long explanation to try to tell us here all that you aren’t even though your continued posts go on and on showing us what you are…
anyway…back to the program already in progress
oh but you are like Donald Trump…one) you are easily baited by detractors and respond quickly seemingly without giving much thought before you hit send. two) you are extremely nationalistic and do not try to moderate your feelings that Norwegians have a superior maritime industry. (as an aside, I believe much of what you say about Norway’s maritime is not inaccurate. I have great admiration and some awe for all that Norway has done to develop their offshore and maritime industry technologies). three) like Donald Trump, your delivery of your message is hamfisted and dare I say it…ARROGANT! four) you also seem to believe that any majority has no standing…including in this forum. this is one of the biggest traits of yours which makes me rile in anger. please try to remember that there are vastly more American mariners here in this forum than foreigners. if you cannot respect the views of that majority then go find an all Norwegian maritime forum to bash us Americans relentlessly like you do. I am one American who does not appreciate your attitude and hope you will leave if you cannot moderate your words from here on out.
so this is your moment to make a decision. do you wish to continue down the same course you have held which has created a strong and vocal anti Ombugge coalition here or to decide that you would rather be proud but less confrontational in your participation.
