What's wrong with comrade? Comrade sounds much cooler than 'sir'.....

@LBraden: Don't be silly!
Just be aware that certain words DOES have a negative connotation. Having lived through the sixties through the eighties with an aggressive, destructive and repressive Communist Bloc, I'd take exception being addressed as "comrade"! I'm certainly noone's comrade except my most intimate frends! (perhaps...) Just be aware of that!
Now, I don;t know about your age. My experience is that people who didn't experience in person the Cold War, tend to be more lackadaisical with the terminology than people with experience.
Anyhow...'nough of this silliness!

You just don't really know what does "comrade" means. If throw out the communist implication, the "comrade" ("Товарищ" ("Tovarishch") in Russian) means "nearest friend", "the most reliable friend" etc., so, I just try to express respect to TristanAlting as he is a reliable friend. Okay, if you dislike it - I will stop using this word here.

Ok cool down lads. Who are we to judge anyone's threads to be silly or stupid. In the end this whole thing is rather silly...grown men drawings ships in our free time...So be polite and if you don't have anything meaningful to contribute this or any other threads then just don't contribute at all.

Also its ok to call some one comrades. To claim it offensive comparable to someone claiming the use of "sir" offensive due its bourgeois oppressive nature vice versa to the socialist/communist tendencies of the word Comrade. Just try not to get these things too seriously and don't let them get under your skins.

Ouch. Well it's not like these drawings were a waste of time. I've seen many of these ships used on Wikipedia pages as official drawings and such.

My general irritation was not at the drawings (why would it be) but rather at the nearly page-long argument over the use of the word "comrade". People need to relax.
