      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.

    Nobody ever asks me that, I guess having to put up with me is a price. They just don't appreciate all you do for them. How's that work then ? shaking hands as you step off the boat, I would think one or both of us would end up in the drink. or is this some kind of really big boat gig where you say bye as you head down the ganglank ?

    William F Buckley's trio - Airborn, Atlantic High, and I forget the third one. Great accounts of how a bunch of longtime friends & family charter 60-70 boats and do an ocean crossing together. (I recall they begin by all getting together for an evening to select the wine for the trip - a very SA approach).
