    The boater is mature enough to ignore the thunderstorm about to hit.

    Plus...they're seated the wrong way- rowing stern first.

    Isn’t that “nit-pick?”

    And there should be a comma before “etc.”

    Other than being annoying and degrading communication? No not really.

    I'd still prefer that people not act like idiots, though.

    Anyone care to weigh in on that participle? As an incomplete sentence fragment it doesn't dangle - but then why is it a capital I?
