A Moron, Me?

'you"ll be at the bottom of atherstone or foxton but nowhere near braunston never heard of winter stopages morons'


The comment above was posted by ANONYMOUS on 17th Jan and refers to the post where I mention we are heading for Braunston. 
Can someone tell me why a person that hasn't met you, doesn't know you, hasn't the courage or courtesy to give a name still feels the need to lash out and call you a moron?  Further I am apparently damned as a moron because we have read the BW Stoppages Programme and we have planned our movements around it so we can get where we want to go despite of it.
Not bad for a moron, this reading stuff what..   
So Anonymous, a word if I may. 
If you feel the misguided urge to sit in judgement upon others at least get your facts straight, you spelling and grammer accurate and leave the insults in the playground where they belong.  Have a good day!

Go Lesley - they should know better than to mess with you!

How rude - the anonymity of forums/blogs really does bring out the worst in some people.

We must also be morons, as we also planned cruise round the Braunston area, having come up Atherstone before the stoppage in January - as per the BW "Stoppage List". This is the holy grail for continuous or winter cruisers, but obviously passes some people by. Morons of the canals - UNITE!! Please don't let one arse**** stop you writing as you have been - my friends and I really look forward to reading your blogs. Hope you're better by the way - missed the blog the past couple of days!!

Really I think this is a case of get a life. Yes some people do not want their names and personal detail,s on show for all to see. We dont need mooring warden around when you let them know where you are how long you,ve been their, where your going next etc. So really who is the said moron in this case. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU DONT HELP THEM. P.s I am a different boater who wishes to keep all my business to myself....

Hi Sue
There is nothing wrong with wishing to stay discreet about your life and staying anonymous but casting casual insults whilst hiding behind a 'wall' is rather cowardly and anti-social me thinks..

Hi Anon
I have no issue with people keeping their details to themselves and being discreet about who they are and where they are, why would I? If anyone wants to stay beneath the radar that is fine by me. Furthermore I have not referred to anyone as a 'moron'. I have however taken issue over the casual casting of insults which is unnecessary and offensive

"I have however taken issue over the casual casting of insults which is unnecessary and offensive" Dead right, well written as always.

I suppose it was a bridge hopper in a hippie hutch who wrote:-

If you are really concerned about hiding yourself from the watchers, you dont advertise your presence by responding to blogs where your ISP can be traced.
