      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.

    It's fun watching these anonymous tiny handed schoolyard bullies - whose 90 post contribution includes such youth inspiring enlightenment as: Asshole: 14 times. Asswipe: 11 Douche-bag-canoe: 12. Dick: 12. Dick-smoker: 3. Dickhead: 2. Bugger: 6, Buggerer: 2. Fuck: 29. Fucked: 11. Fuckhole: 6. Fuck off: 7. Crap: 2. Shit: 6. Shitty:1 Dipshit: 1 Tits: 11 (well illustrated, I'd add). For the math challenged that's 135 useless, attention seeking, thread destroying, offensive and damaging swear words that contribute exactly nothing to sailing or the OP. Of what real value? To what purpose? Childish self-aggrandizement? Just a buncha bozos on a bus being driven through, and hopefully, out of town. What an amazing contribution of teeny teenage tripe that - seriously - adds nothing but is certainly undeniable evidence of weak egos desperate for attention via escalating scatology, et al. A fine example for the young readers who want to learn about sailing, cruising, repair and the buying and operating of boats. And let's not forget the majority of adults and older sailors who likewise don't want, need or seek their intrusive, unnecessary and outspoken bon mots. Some are religious, some simply don't find value in incessant and childish, beer influenced blather. But like all bullies they are forced to gather in a tight formation as circle jerks, priding themselves on their lack of pride and inspirational leadership. You know - the kind that fart at the party, then leave the room and smell for others to deal with. What great inspiration, and what a massive waste of time and bandwidth. Natch, they are quite proud of themselves and their ability to talk trash, but little else. They are so very fragile that these few cannot accept that maybe, possibly they did in fact pile on - not to educate, but to attract attention to their proud crude and useless stupidity. As for me - I could not have agreed more with the first few posts properly castigating the OP's poorly chosen actions. But as for the 90 rapidly deteriorating and completely uninformative, look-at-me, low rent drivel of which only they could possibly be proud. A waste of time. It's important to confront these tiny hand teenies, if only to let them know how ineffective and unnecessary and childish these grown men can be, and how little regard they have for anyone other than their tiny band of sycophantic blowhards. Carry on...

    "Vapid, fuckwitted douchecanoe...". I actually like that one, with its implied and mildly entertaining respect. Thank you! What no "tits"? HFC and JohnSloop will be very disappointed in you. This poster can surely do better in balancing his obsession of "asshole" and "buggery" with large breasts. Bisexual? You wish that of course. Al screwed up, then the bus full of brilliant bozos followed in turn. This poster doesn't need me to point out his anal fixations. This one guesses wrong. Apparently he/she has been away from civil society long enough that he/she can't believe anyone would take issue with this uh, sailing (?} forum. The malposters here are just a buncha bozos on the A-bus...

    It's clear that among these final three stragglers, that the beermeister is the alpha. When it comes to repetitive and cheep insults, my vote is still with the Sail4BudLite weight. Blowing off steam is fine. But to support endless crude insults - for over 60 posts yet - of an OP who is long gone? What's that all about? I suppose it could be worse; otherwise such posters might be beating their wives. Where's our resident spellchecker when we need him? Actually the quiet one is actually rather reasonable, and managed to comment without a single "asswipe", "asshole", or even a single dick reference. Amazing! I applaud the Whisperer for his self control. There are actually two subjects in this thread: first, the OP, who acted poorly and was told so.. The second - obvious to anyone - arises when a handful of loud mouths pile on, and fill the thread with one "asshole" after "asswipe", after "fuckhole", after "fuck off" - I gave up counting after about 30 such brilliant observations and put downs - first of the OP, and then of anybody who feels such excess is well, excessive Actually nothing says "asshole" more than a little Koch who actually says the word - repeatedly - and who clearly has an anal fixation.

    If by depth this poster is referring to depravity, he's entirely right. I have just as foul a mouth as anyone, but I don't need to repeat myself 60 times to make a non-point. Tell me that's not your best. Please! I'd say bare assed is more like it. The beermeister apparently doesn't get it's not about politeness - nope - it's about ego-challenged overkill. A gang of teeny toughs wearing lowriders and comparing ass-cracks and using swear words out of earshot of their mommies. Is there a winner? My votes going to SailBudLight...

    Here the poster - well representing his handle - changed my text in a less than clever ad hom. Here the very same beer fueled poster complains that I - in turn - changed his text, lol. Isn't turnabout fair play? The OP - yes a freeloader - was never defended by moi; to the contrary I made abundantly clear (to those who actually read) that I was in complete agreement with the negative observations of the first few posters. What I stand against are the beer enhanced posts that do not extend or refine the thread, but are little more than crude, ad home insults. It sure gets boringly unproductive after 30 or 40, now approaching 60 of these brainless bon mots. That'd be "Mr. Asswipe" to you, my friend, lol... Brilliant repartee in defense of the tremendous value of using "ass, dick and fackhole" as descriptors. But somehow I'm not convinced of the fine example these gentlemen(?) purport to set. Those who don't read are doomed to misunderstand. Of course I stand against the OP and said so unequivocally and clearly - but only for those who read. What tends to happen when there's too much beer and not enough time is that yet another foul mouthed poster fails to read posts before gleefully piling on. The deep thought and care that goes into these very educational observations is without equal. Let's watch the barstool beermeisters carry on. It'll be fun. After all, apparently useless repetition is the rule in these parts...

    Relax. Breathe. The first two or three posts were correct and deserved. We hardly need 40 more cheap and uninformative shots which add little, and quickly become boringly repetitive. Mr. Koch seems to have a dick fixation, lol... ( ) ( ) Me bugger off? If boring repetition is the game, why should anybody do so? I guess it depends on whose ox is being gored... Nope. Now while I do agree the OP was in the wrong, the first two or three posts saying so were quite appropriate. But we don't need 40 increasingly crude, pile-on, repetitions whose goal seems to be who can create the foulest, meaningless ad hom insults. Really quite boring and frankly some of them are not suitable for younger sailors. Sets a bad example. Gentlemen - which may be a reach at this point - it's time to consider when the point was made, and when simple repetition becomes a problem of its own. I'm sure most real sailors have better things to do. The famous "Three Wise Monkeys" had it right. Havabanana...

    Boring, repetitive pile-on drivel. The point was well made about 40 posts ago. Move along...
  8. Budget Crossing of the Atlantic

    While most would agree that the OP had not acted appropriately, fairly or intelligently - there quickly becomes a point - quite early really - that the repetition and escalation of pile-on ad homs become tiresome ad bombs of their own.
