      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.

    K8. Very interesting the direction this thread has gone. 2 of the toughest sailors I have on the boat are non males. Unfortunately one has a phobia of spiders, in particular huntsman.( Was going to post a huntsman photo, but not feeling clever at the moment.) Apparently they are hairy, big and move fast. WHICH causes a problem when rowing out in the tender, which is a home for huntsman!! Hard to row with someone standing on your shoulders. For those sooks who don't like orb spiders, HTFU, yeah the web is sticky and they will run around your face, but back up early and you should be good. P,S. they love a bit of mince meat in the web, but you can't take them for a walk.

    Same requirements at a recent season debrief at one* of my clubs. All about ensuring all onboard are insured! (No other YA/SA benefits apparently) Have you read the YA/SA policy? The Tiger Airways of insurance. *Note I have 3 clubs forking out to YA/SA on my behalf.

  15. Machine Gun Fellatio - If you've not been there, do yourself a favour and start with On Ice and work your way back. 3 albums only. Can anyone tell me where I can get Jimmy and the Boys albums? Mine where stolen a long time ago and am unable to replace them. Nazareth, Triumph, not under rated by me.
