      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.

  2. Where are all the cool boats in CA going?

    The sail maker and a certain rigger who share the same building are notorious in this regard.

    Superbowl city is being built. What a shit show its creating with traffic. Yet San Francisco can do nothing with the homeless, who have more rights, privilege and services then the tax payers. They seem free to roam, piss, shit, at will all over the city. Wonder how this will play out over the next two weeks? Or has the city given them all 50 yard line tickets through some dumb ass social service, at the costs of the tax payers.

    What about one-design TP 52, or similar sized modern boat??? Cause the Volvo tried this concept and it worked really well. Too bad they didn't think this one out.......
  6. 1) It's precedent, and yes, sailors have been compensated by the court for negligent working conditions since it was passed. The Jones Act was in fact enacted because the Seaman's Act of 1915 provided lots of 'new rights' for sailors but neglected to address injuries aboard ship. 2) This is how the US congress decided the system works. They passed the law in 1920, and my impression was that they write the laws, not you. I am struggling to find out what possible right or responsibility 'we' have to dictate the way that 'we' all want professional sailing to go, or how 'we' have anything to do with encouraging or discouraging this behavior. Are you a senator? A federal judge? Are you going to lobby congress? 3) I am not so sure you understand the law the way you think you do. Kenny is from Great South Bay (Bayberry YC) and Clean is from Rockville Centre. Could there be a geographical reason why they're in agreement that a lawsuit is the answer to all problems? I love it when Long Islanders are so predictable so so true to form. Hey, I'm a jew and a lawyer too. Got anything cute to say about that? No shit. That explains EVERYTHING.

  10. "National Cleavage Day"

    The most unbelievable part of that fantasy is that it's happening on a single aisle four-across regional jet. Imagine what kind of service row 1,2, and 3 get! Her bush looks like Hitler' mustache

    Sleep with your feet forward. Better to bang your heel than break your neck.
  12. Donnybrook

    What a shit hole that place is. well, it's a town, not a resort... as far as towns in the caribbean where local people live and work, it's pretty typical - lot's of businesses, tourist infrastructure.., tourist bars and restaurants , local bars and restaurants ...with crystal blue water, white sand beaches, warm temperatures, and trade winds. Sounds like a real shit hole. Cheap beer. Its fucking terrible man, don't ever go there. You might.... be comfortable. Fucking awful. Talking about crime, meth, blow, locals who hate white people.... St Thomas has plenty of resorts with fences with razor wire at the top, and its not to keep the tourists in
