      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. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    I don't know if it's considered bad form to do this on this thread but... After a brief but vigorous battle with cancer and some complications, a fellow sailor and anarchist, Patrick Scott, passed away Sunday morning. In an effort to get the word out: The wake for Patrick Scott will be Thursday between 1:00 PM and 9:00 PM, Information will be posted on the caring bridge site soon and also be in the Chicago Tribune today. In place of flowers the family is asking for donations that will be put to use taking care of Patrick's daughters. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/patrickscott Visitation 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM Thursday 19, 2009 Palos Gaidas funeral home 11028 Southwest highway Palos hills IL 60465 708-974-4410 Rest in peace Pat.
