For anyone who might be interested I just wrote this. I rarely come here these days, so luckily I am unlikely to see the inevitable disagreements and bickering!

Great post, Simon, thanks! When I first started kayaking and people wanted to talk about the forward stroke, I sort of rolled my eyes--I wanted to learn how to do the cool shit. Now, when someone good tells me my forward stroke is "looking pretty decent", I know they are paying me a compliment--and when they tell me how to improve it, I try to listen hard.
