At the risk of antagonizing you I'd like to point out that you only got 3 comments which commented at all on the general idea, which you didn't really explain in detail in your post, nor respond directly to their comments and questions. The traffic here isn't so heavy that 2-3 days of exposure will reach as many members as will a week or two.
The other point of interest which you may or may not realize is that a rotating fin assembly isn't a new idea here by any means. I can think of at least a couple other people from years ago who were using a rotating fin assembly for either a singlefin or a center in a thruster combo. As I recall, one member here was actually selling fin boxes for it. So that prior exposure may be playing a part in how people are reacting to this newer iteration. Or not. It's hard to say.
If you want to drop an explanation in here and engage in some back-n-forth discussion I'd imagine you'll get some action. We have members here who have not been around long enough to have seen or considered the prior iterations, so I think you'll probably find an audience here. On the other hand, if you're not interested in a discussion then that's okay too.
The one thing I think can predict with some confidence is that you probably won't be winning a whole lot of converts to your ideas by assuming everyone here is lame. People can be funny that way.
I don't generally respond to hostile posts like yours. I'm making an exception. You made no effort to discuss anything. Your immediate responses were defensive and combative.
There are a lot of gifted and skilled members here. Your response is more than a little insular and elitist.
You sound like an entrepreuner who is so in love with his own idea that he can't accept that rational people won't like it. Discussion allows inventors and entrepreneurs to identify problems and adapt.
I recently patented surfcraft tech of my own. The individual who shaped and glassed the prototype for me wanted to post the build here on Sways. I agreed. And while I was certain there would be criticism and doubt, I knew I could glean a few pearls of insight from interactive dialogue with other members.
While I'm confident my ideas will work, I certainly did not expect to receive accolades, affirmation and community adulation.
I truly hope you succeed. But if this is how you react to negative and lukewarm input, you've got a long uphill road ahead of you.
Basically, you wanted instant status in the lineup with no significant interaction with established members...

Well said. Points given.
Gdaddy, Sroneburner, you've given very thoughtful and patient advice. Several times.
But I had to laugh over him saying "delete my account". Much easier to just not come back if that is his wish.
all the best
