Thank You and GoodBye

First i want to say that i am grateful for the chance to write here about my favourite hobby in SL, to water some mouths for sailing in SL, to help sailors to improve their skills, to drag some more readers into this Blog site and to give the clubs TrYC and St Aubrey a platform here. But like in every journey I have to leave a road for another to reach my destination and now after nearly 2 years the time has come for me to do just this.

I can accept Orca, that you have been a fan of Putin and that you think that all western politicians are gangsters, even if i don’t agree with all. And this is not the moment to discuss who is the better or who is the most dangerous leader or who did what and when to who. The current situation in the Ukraine is the point.
And i can’t accept what you wrote about the current situation in the Ukraine and i don’t want to see my name, the name of Saint Aubrey and the awesome group of sailors we have in combination with that.

My aim was to increase the number of readers and sailors and that worked pretty well. But in the last couple of days i read comments about if i am still on the right platform.

I have to say i didn’t read those Blogs at first, because i really got tired to hear it everywhere and all day long and didn’t want to read that in here as well. So i took the time to go through some of them and i really understood the comments and i have to say:

No this isn’t the platform anymore to write my reports! It will take a bit time, but we will look for a different way to continue.

Thank you all for your support here during the last 2 years and stay all safe and healthy.

    • Still not totally sure about how to react to your decision to leave this blog.

      On the topic of Ukraine you might have a different opinion than I. So what? This is a blog of inclusion, not exclusion. I didn’t even redact or censor any of Karmi/MNSKY’s toxic troll posts. If he thinks that’s the correct way to converse here then ok, so be it. One day he might not get any answers anymore and that’s that then. Most trolls lose interest when being ignored.

      I’m not a troll. Not in other people’s blogs, not in any forums, and absolutely not in mine. When I’m “funny” you see it in the smileys. So please believe me, I take the Ukraine topic dead serious, and my personal analysis is based on facts not on politics. Yes, I see the USA as the main culprit, not Russia. Because facts!

      I’m not now, and never was and never will be a Putin fan. He’s a politician, the most important and powerful of the world leaders right now. Which makes him highly suspicious. But, same as Biden and Scholz and Johnson and Macron, he doesn’t exist in a vacuum and can’t do whatever he fancies. And as a president he’s head and shoulders above the other assholes.

      The Russian arguments are sound. The American arguments are weak. Russia, since years and years, urges for talks and negotiations which are regularly ignored by NATO/USA. Instead they just keep on illegaly crouching closer and closer to Russian borders, breaking their promises and contracts.

      That’s what I know. So I don’t follow the narrative as the western politicians want us to follow it. And isn’t it strange, all the yellow/blue flags all of a sudden? Most people couldn’t show you the Ukraine on a world map 2 weeks ago, and now everybody is high on emotional support? A bit weird, isn’t it? And all that while our rich leaders bring a new inflation on us, a needless inflation that will cost each of us a lot of money. But will gives us cold cold nights. 😦

      Maybe you think differently about the Ukraine affair, I guess you do. And while I can’t understand why I also don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t continue to do your race reports in this blog. Your races are in SL, that’s where they belong. Has nothing to do with geopolitics.

      When I sometimes (much too seldom) report about SL stuff it doesn’t even remotely touch my socialist views of RL. Heck, if I was just a tiny bit more consequential I’d cancel my SL account, at least the premium part (coz capitalist America), and go sulking in my little corner. But I’ve decided I’m a big enough girl to tolerate the fact and live on with SL.

      I hope you can, too, with this blog.

  2. Ok i will explain it more Orca.

    For me there is no doubt at all that Putin is a classical and brutal dictator who follows only his own sick moral, but this is not the point here.

    1. I learned long time ago that all i do and even if i dont do anything i will influence the reactions of the people around me.

    2. A bit less than 2 years ago after the first Corona wave they started to develop the vaccines against the virus and they did it in their laboratories without any informations for the public. In that time a lot of people without any knowledge about virus technologies started to scare people and to spread doubts about the vaccine and said that the vaccine will change genes and is dangerous.
    No one of the experts commented these nonsense, disagreed or debunked those stupid nonsense based on no knowledge at all.
    The result is now obvious. 25% in Germany dont want a vaccine. The majority of infected people in our hospitals dont have a vaccine and the majority of our deaths as well.

    3. If i run a blog and give others the chance to write there I am responsible for what is said there and i cant just let this run uncommented, disagreed or even cencored.
    There are of course a lot of themes that can be discussed and as i said i accept a lot of opinions and i am willing to discuss them.

    But in the case of this war in the Ukraine i dont accept anyone saying that the Ukranians are not the victims and that Putin and his clan are not the perpretators and i dont accept an excusion that this blog is free for everyone and nothing will be cencored. You are responsible for what is published here and you have the the moral duty in this case to moderate that.

    You dont do it and you dont want to do it. Thats why i wont report here anymore. This is absolutely against my conviction.

    And about SL. My aim was always to win sailors for sailing and racing, but reporting here in these times have a high risk of losing them and i wont risk this at all. Extremely said: If no one will read it anymore i dont need to write it anymore.

    • “Putin is a classical and brutal dictator who follows only his own sick moral, but this is not the point here.”
      Not only not the point here, it’s no point at all. I could say for me Putin has green hairs and a small penis. Same amount of truth in both statements … although, have you ever observed Putin’s penis? There could be more truth in my assumption than in yours.

      “1. I learned long time ago that all i do and even if i dont do anything i will influence the reactions of the people around me.”
      Old principle of action –> reaction.

      “25% in Germany dont want a vaccine.”
      I don’t want it neither. 2 to 1.5 years ago I wanted it. But not anymore. Not after we learned all the facts.

      “3. If i run a blog and give others the chance to write there I am responsible for what is said there and i cant just let this run uncommented, disagreed or even cencored.”
      Huh? You want me to censor your race reports? Doesn’t compute. 😐

      “i accept a lot of opinions and i am willing to discuss them.

      But in the case of this war in the Ukraine i dont accept anyone saying that the Ukranians are not the victims”
      What makes the Ukraine so special you’re willing to sacrifice your principles over it?
      I state here, loud and clear, schwarz auf weiß, that the Ukrainians in the Donbass republics are the victims. They suffered 8 years of shelling and discrimination after the Maidan coupe d’etat. The normal Ukrainian population population is nearly uninfluenced by any of the hubbub.

      The BILD reporter couldn’t find any refugees in his story about then refugee train. And when he finally found two young women willing to talk to him, they said they just came from visiting their grandma and are on the way home.

      “i dont accept an excusion that this blog is free for everyone and nothing will be cencored.”
      In this case, since you and Izi are seeing me as the reason for your stress, I’d need to censor myself! And I won’t do that since I’m neutral/on the right side. By supporting the Ukraine I’d loose too much of my humanity. Sorry, can’t do.

      “You are responsible for what is published here”
      Yes, of course. And responsibility is what I show.

      “and you have the the moral duty in this case to moderate that.”
      Again, you want me to moderate myself. I did that already before I posted anything. I won’t post any of the West’s hysteric lies, I won’t join the choir of hate, I won’t buy into the narrative. No can do.

      “You dont do it and you dont want to do it. Thats why i wont report here anymore. This is absolutely against my conviction.”
      Fair enough.

      “reporting here in these times have a high risk of losing them”
      Ppl who are not able to differentiate are no big loss. I can be pro/contra Putin all day long, and in the evening I go sailing with Bianca. I don’t care what she thinks about Putin and she could be a Ukrainain herself. As long as she does my fave regatta on my fave boat she could be from Mars for all I care.

  3. Absolutely my last visit and comment here. The wheels were already in motion, Orca, when I gave you a last chance to reconsider. You still refused to acknowledge what Putin is REALLY doing to REAL families in Ukraine right now, and you also said that you don’t care at all about your followers and those who share your blog. It’s something to know that you do care a bit, but it’s too late. I’m sorry it came to this, I had just a little hope for a better outcome.

      Wotz wrong with you, Izi? You’re in no position to give me a chance. Capisce?

      “Putin is REALLY doing to REAL families in Ukraine”
      Do you have any prove or just the same old propaganda videos? You can find enough videos about almost normal street life in Ukrainian cities and villages. The hundreds of thousands of refugees are mostly men trying to escape the draft. And nazis of course, trying to duck from justice.

      “you also said that you don’t care at all about your followers and those who share your blog.”
      Wrong! I stated long time ago that I write this blog to amuse myself and that everybody is welcome to read and/or participate. But I’d do this blog even if I were the last person on the planet. For the people who’re reading this blog, of course I care for them. I’m not responsible for them, I’m not anybody’s mother.

      The people creating content here are all grown up, responsible women who don’t need any redaction and/or censorship. Myself included. I have a scissors in my head as well and know when to stop. Believe it or not.

      And so far I haven’t found a single sentence in neither of my blogs I’d take back or delete.

      Conclusion: You’re wrong on all accounts. Had you studied history and watched the development up to the day Russia reacted to the permanent poking, you’d admit it. The worst is that while we have heated discussions about some inconsequential country, in America they laugh … all the way to the bank. 😦

  4. Late here, night even… but I cannot stay quiet. I want to pick up two things here at least:

    1.) “Putin is REALLY doing to REAL families in Ukraine”
    You wrote: “Do you have any prove or just the same old propaganda videos? You can find enough videos about almost normal street life in Ukrainian cities and villages. The hundreds of thousands of refugees are mostly men trying to escape the draft. And nazis of course, trying to duck from justice.”

    >> Orca, we do see in the middle of Europe right now what is happening and refugees are mainly women and children. They come here day by day and they are by far more trustful witnesses than your weird canals.

    2.) You wrote: “Conclusion: You’re wrong on all accounts. Had you studied history and watched the development up to the day Russia reacted to the permanent poking, you’d admit it.

    >> That is so selfish and you behave as if you’d have studied human history from its birth on. You don’t seem to understand that the Ukrainian people do have their own will and that they have fighted for democracy and freedom! Orange revolution, the fight on Maidan… Your concept of an ennemy, the USA.. sorry Orca, that makes no sense if you would please, please accept that there is a people that has fighted for freedom and peace!

    • Hi Silber, let’s go in medias res:

      “refugees are mainly women and children.”
      Where do they come from, Ukrainian main cities or Donbass? That’s a huge difference, coz only the people in Donbass are really in immediate danger. And for all the other areas the Ukrainian regime has closed, sometimes even mined, the humanitarian corridors.

      “They come here day by day”
      Oh, now all of a sudden Festung Europa opens its borders for refugees? Oh yes, I forgot those refugees are blond and have blue eyes. Kinda racist, dontcha think?

      “and they are by far more trustful witnesses than your weird canals.”
      Are they? And are the people who bring you the news about what the refugees have to say trustworthy? Springer, Gruner & Jahr, Spiegel …

      Don’t be so easily duped, menno! 😐

      And my weird canals are? Some very very trusted bloggers and twitters, former diplomats, political analysts, scientists …

      “That is so selfish and you behave as if you’d have studied human history from its birth on.”
      No, not from its birth on. But I’ve studied Neue and Mittlere Osteuropäische Geschichte and am in fact kinda expert on all things USSR and Russian Federation. And I don’t know what’s selfish about stating that America’s 1% elite makes huge profits from this and other crises? Just look at Scholz and Annalenchen, 2 Volksverräter wie aus dem Drehbuch.

      “You don’t seem to understand that the Ukrainian people do have their own will and that they have fighted for democracy and freedom!”
      I understand rather well, as I’ve stated I’m following the spectacle since the end of the USSR rather closely. Yes, there was some fighting in the Ukraine. Among each other … and serving different leaders. Most of the fighting were Pro-Russian militias vs Ukrainian army. What am I saying, was? It’s still going on! The Donbass gets shelled each and every fukn day! Not by Russians, I can tell you that much.

      “Orange revolution, the fight on Maidan…”
      One of the many colour revoloutions, indeed instigated by the CIA. That is proven fact nowadays! Victoria “fuck the EU” Nuland ring a bell?

      “Your concept of an ennemy, the USA.. sorry Orca, that makes no sense”
      Silber,the USA is THE enemy of all freedom loving people in the world since 1945! And they follow the same playbook every time. Korea, Vietnam, near- and middle east, Africa, central and south America. Don’t you ever read books, follow independent news or just watch better movies?
      Don’t act all surprised when I tell you now who really killed Che Guevara and tried manymany times to assassinate Fidel Castro. Yes, it was one of those famous 3 letter secret services. They finance all the contras, they are behind most coups, And now you know where the 23 billion dollars went that are missing from the US fiscal account.

      And I have no problem accepting that there are many people fighting for freedom and peace. I’m firmly on their side. It’s just not the people you think about.

    >>> Silly Orca to blame it on the medias from far away SA, that is too easy but probably the bubble you’re living in at the moment. The people who bring me here the news are not Springer, Gruner&Jahr, Spiegel… but the refugees themselves, day by day at Hauptbahnhof Hamburg, mainly women and children and NOT like you claimed: „men and nazis“.

    Get it???!

      Internet. There is only one side shelling cities in Ukraine: The Ukrainian army and nazi vounteer militias like Asov Brigades (which are now integrated into official army as of yesterday). The Donbass militias have never operated outside the Don basin.

      “>>> You want the EU to appear racist… sorry, that does not work.”
      No? Ask the real Syrian refugees and all the North Africans who drowned in the mediterranean.
      Fact is you don’t see bombing runs by the Russian airforce, you don’t see bombed living quarters, you see uninterrupted internet and telephone lines, power and heat. The Russians don’t fight the civilians, they are no fuxn Americans!

      “>>> Silly Orca to blame it on the medias from far away SA”
      Really, Silber, really? Mow it makes a difference from where I read German propaganda outlets? In today’s world? You know very well that by now all the big publishing houses are good and well integrated into the widerlich transatlantic club.

      “the bubble you’re living in”
      Says the girl from inside the USA/EU bubble who doesn’t realize in what a restrained strange little anti-democratic bubble she lives. 80% of the world is firmly with the Russians and Chinese. Go, check it out.

      “Hauptbahnhof Hamburg”
      I’m allergic to anecdotal examples, they don’t qualify as reasonings in a adult discussion.

      “Get it???!”
      There is nothing to get from your sadly poor post. What do you want from me?
