      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.

  1. Thanks Mark and Rule 69, track last night was looking favorable. Now more so. Sure we'll see you again this year. Back to turning off SA.
  2. 11 am sat pic shows a step to the left, and we want a jump to the right. Standing by for the 2pm and 5pm.
  3. Mark and Rule 69, thanks for the updates. We will be closely watching the track here until the power goes off. Then we won't need to track it......
  4. There's a bit in the Carribean Thread. I would be off the mooring balls because likely there will be something from the south.
  5. Just looked at the animation after the 8am. Seems that once again the moisture is getting trapped on the eastern side of the Big Island. The Low has dissipated and weakened. Some of the Low and the moisture will continue on their own. The visual center of the storm does seem to have shifted south a bit and the Low has elongated north- south. Not the first storm that got shredded by the Big Island, and vice versa. Now will Lester catch up and harvest the moisture? Or just have a rear end collision? Still will be a) watching closely, and battening down just in case something weird happens and something spools back up.
  6. You'll definitely want to batten down. We're watching it to see how hard to batten down. I'm leaning toward Maddy going north. The animation with the five pm GOES indicates that being the trend. However, place your bets boys and girls because while the topography of the Big Island can affect the Tropical Storms we've been getting, this is a lot more energy . Curious to see what the 8pm shows. Good luck over there.
  7. Mark, Any thoughts on Madeline and her brother? Looks like they're sliding down about the same track. Thanks.
  8. Did he not run her Senate campaign? Did Bill Clinton not swear him in as Mayor of NYC? These people are joined at the hip. This is about making a statement....but not the one most might think. My take is that this is a calculated move. That Team Clinton specifically asked DeBlasio to hold off so that she could put herself forward as more centrist.In the long run DeBlasio will endorse her, but not until she feels comfortable that she is polling well with moderates and independents. So yea, discuss her positions all you want. However that is about as easy to pin down on what color a chameleon on acid will turn next. I agree with this view. DeBlasio's endorsement is redundant. She doesn't need or want it now. as for her position, simple like the rest of the egotistical bunch in the race. I am the only person qualified to be President. The rest is the sales pitch.
  9. Police Militarization in the US

    In Cambridge? A SWAT team?!
  10. Bloomberg'$ $peech

    The slingshot. It's always fun until someone pokes an eye out.
  11. Photography Is Not A Crime

    Jersey style. http://www.cnet.com/news/man-arrested-for-not-giving-police-camera-at-crash-scene/#ftag=YHF65cbda0
  12. Sandy Hook parents suing everyone. ....

    ^^^ This.... Given that mental/behavioral issues are dynamic, the balance between protection from one's self and protection of one's liberties is difficult to implement in statute. I think that its a conversation that we need to have, and that perhaps in addition to statute, should be an awareness that we all hold a responsibility for keeping ourselves together. When I was a kid, if I did something wrong out in public, my Mom would know about it before I got home. Now? People are afraid to upset parents by telling them that their kids are acting up. I hated knowing I couldn't get away with anything then, but, it damn sure kept me in line. Maybe we need a societal trend back towards that kind of caring. Yep, no coconuts in Dorchester but the coconut wireless was quite strong.

    Pushing for a $ettlement from the insurance company. Not about justice or even social change. Just money. How come they don't sue the school district or the local cops? $imple, it's harder to extort a $ettlement.
  14. F1 2014 Big Changes

    While I'd agree with the 5 years comment, i'll offer that the 2014 rules changes reset that clock. All we heard this season indicated that Ferrari F1 is pretty dysfunctional from top to bottom. Wonder if Vettel will have better luck? Took him a lot of 2014 to get any real pace and he was touted in 2012/2013 as a very adaptable driver who quickly sorted out what it took to make a car fast. Looks like the housecleaning at Brand F is continuing. Fry got the broom today. As for Vettel, without Newey onboard we'll see what he can do.
  15. F1 2014 Big Changes

    Button to sort out the car development. Fred to drive it fast. KMag gets some grooming and held off the market. Bonus. Michibata says around F1 another year.
