      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. let me explain...

    When it comes the the Golden Globe I think I agree, probably harder these days. 50 years ago nobody actually knew if it was possible, now that it has been proven doable it adds another mental challenge into the equation. Five decades ago if a competitor pulled out it was a bloody shame but everyone understood, they were attempting something that might not be achievable. Now they will have just failed and to have that looming over you could be a hard thing to deal with. Also public opinions of a skipper have changed. I reckon that less people will celebrate someone who goes down stairs, shuts the hatch and finishes off the brandy when a storm hits. Still, easy to say from my sofa. Either way it should make some good stories!
