      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. Rimas is alive

    Much like municipalities that have come to budgetary troubles over multiple-repeat NARCAN-calls, there is beginning to be some push-back over saving repeat offenders once the impact on EVERYONE'S services is considered. You can't be surprised that the pilot was pissed of risking the lives of his crew for this moron. I know I sure would be.
  2. The Other Day the music died

    Oh, I'm not going to get into the whole Southern-Rock and Confederate flag thing, just...well, the event was a moment of my youth - a band we listened to was suddenly gone - an event that would re-occur often, unfortunately.
  3. Playboy announces 1st Transgender Playmate

    '70's ??? HINT of bush ?? Dude. Either you weren't there or you were dating Asians ! Full-on Chastity Pelts were the order of the day.
  4. The Other Day the music died

    40 years ago. Today. Boom yer old.
  5. The Other Day the music died

    To remember the radio announcing that a chartered Convair CV 240 had gone down with Lynrd Skynrd aboard.. "Sweet home Alabama, Play that dead band's song Turn those speakers up full blast, play it all night long." - W. Zevon
  6. Motorcycle Threads

    Just back from a quick ride down to Vintagefest, at the Barber's motorsports complex in Leeds, Alabama. Completely awesome event if you are a gearhead. Old-Bike-A-Paloossa. I was among my people. Fantastic museum.
  7. Wahine 26

    It looks WAAY too much like a Mac 26 to be listing at nearly $ 200,000 !
  8. My newest project

    Let me hear your Balalaikas ringing out, come and keep your comrades warm ! I'm back in the USSR
  9. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    Just to reinforce this point - thinking that YOU can sail a Moore 24 offshore because Webb Chiles sailed one around the world is akin to buying the same bike Chris Froome has and expecting to place well in the tour. It's the singer, not the song.
  10. What is this masty little beamer?

    Jack up the Windex and slide a Luca 30 underneath ?
  11. Wahine 26

    While the positive attributes of the gender are admirable, the boat reminds me more of a tubby broad with a bad haircut and a grating voice who thinks we care about her opinions. That and the website is complete shit.
  12. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    Yep - they can always case it up later if so desired. Glad to hear its performance is as-hoped
  13. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    More like you WEAR the Moore. To the OP - if you haven't logged a bunch of hours in a variety of small keel boats, do yourself a BIG favor and duct tape your wallet shut for a while. You don't know what you don't know.
  14. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    Looks like the keel stub for a canter... The first canting full-keel boat !
  15. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    There's a perfect Moore 24sc here for sale, on a trailer - shipped to the West Coast you'd be looking at $ 25 k-ish, but it's got a new rig, winches, sails, perfect Gel-coat bottom and deck, all update mods done at the factory. You could drive it cross-country with just about anything bigger than a Vespa. Might be more than you'd like to spend but you wouldn't have to re-do fucking ANYTHING. So ask yerself - do you want to sail or do boat work. Just sayin' - if that's what you want, and I could certainly see why. That boat is a bit magic.
