      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.

    Ha. She is in Detroit, along with two others these days, although I don't sail the boat anymore. Has a gray metallic paint job this year. Odd seeing three of them out for Saturday races,.

    In another month those nipples will be poking the row in front of them.

    Or the Cheese Heads. And I was a Packer fan growing up. Going behind the Cheese Curtain is a strange experience. :-)

    It's three weeks in. Harnessing your inner Troll Gator?.

    Until the bottom line gets impacted. Once the paying customers stop paying, that attitude will change quickly.

    Yes it does.

    And yet again, the Lions find yet another bizarre and creative way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Down by 4 they drive down the field and score with 8 seconds left to win the game. Only the td gets overturned on review, and by rule a 10 second run off ensues. Game over. WTF does a over turned call mandate a ten second runoff?. Thanks , NFL. In between this and the anthem bullshit I am not regretting not renewing my season tix on the slightest.

    You are talking about DSL, which has a hard limit of 14K (IIRC) feet from the CO, and that is pushing it. Also depends on how many taps are on the line. It just doesn't scale well. Fiber doesn't have signal strength issues. It is overkill for most if not all houses, but depending on the transceivers, you can push it large distances. Rum Runner could try short haul radio back to where the fiber is, but that would not be cheap, and could be affected by weather as well.

    Exactly. Both teams have talent, but huge question marks. That is why I laugh at preseason polls, they are just popularity contests. Having said that, there is jumping the shark. Humping the shark is a whole nother thing.. Go Blue.

    We shall see.

    No argument. It won't sit well with the more rabid fans, but it sends the right message. I wish Michigan would have suspended Grant Perry for the year.

    The pre-hype is getting entertaining, with Harbaugh refusing to release a roster until August 30, and the sound bites from McElwain. Hopefully it is a good game, definitely a benchmark for both teams.

    The Lions went 4-0 in the preseason in 2008. Then when it counted?

    You have to wonder if the kid was a three star legacy riding the pines whether Satan would have given him the same leeway.

    "The hull form, developed by Pedrick Yacht Designs, resembles a high-performance sailing dinghy, scaled-up to 268 tons lightship"...JFC, they must have HWSNBN on the propaganda staff. Suprised there was no mention of the fourth mode. Hard to read that with a straight face.
