    Apologies. I addressed my reply to Jackson rather than Michael.
    Konrad (Gcaptain) often refers to journalism and himself as a journalist
    in his second article, and then reprints an article from Reuters. IMHO
    posting a blog does not qualify anyone a journalist, any more than than
    having a SLR which can capture movies and a Youtube account makes the
    operator a bonafide filmmaker.
    If you like Konrad's unbiased journalistic style by all means put some
    coin in the CEO's collection plate by purchasing Gcaptian merchandise.
    (It's worth a visit to see how many merchant mariners are skimpily clad
    female fashion models or adorable children on private boats.)
    [NOTE FROM FER: This message originally included a link to the gcap
    online shop as well as a copy of an advertisement showing a pretty
    woman wearing some of their merchandise.
    There's nothing wrong with making fun of over-blown, tacky
    advertising, but we can't include things like that in NavList
    messages because they are distributed to some members by email, and
    those copies would be interpreted both by automated systems and also
    casual readers as actual advertisements leading to spam blacklisting]
