      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Just heard a certain grinder gave taniwha a piece of chocolate cake!!! Let us hope this news never reaches kaumatua. True to form, TK can't even make sense. Who knows what the fuck this guy is actually saying. Taniwha is the maori word for monsters that live in lakes, cares etc... The word is world famous in NZ and every kiwi knows what it means. Kaumatua is the maori word for respected elders. The word is less well known among those that do not speak Maori, which is to say most New Zealanders including most Maori. He was making perfect sense, in as much as you can feed chocolate cake to a painting of a Taniwha. Just look at the painted keel on the kiwi boat and see a lot of 'Kiwiana'. Oh, and Kia Kaha which is also well known in NZ means 'Stay strong'. I have shouted that at the TV screen several times when I have been concerned about our boat.
