      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. NHRA, The cars are exploding

    A good deal more than that, actually. There was an event in the '80s when a cameraman on a pedestal a fair distance from the track-side was struck and killed by a blower-top that had gone ballistic.
  2. Suicide by Uber

    Good thing they have those safety drivers.
  3. Hydroptere abandoned - Available for $20,000

    Boy did YOU ever miss your opportunity !!! Those guys that delivered the big Kauai Tri coulda lashed it between the hulls and had it there for a song...
  4. laugh or cry?

    Redress ? For what ? Rescuing the people that THEY put in the water ? I suppose I understand how some competitive/sports-manager type might have thought about trying it, but I can't BELIEVE the sponsor /marketing types permitted them to actually file for it !! I mean, you would think that by now they'd at least be practiced in the act of finishing the event even though out of contention. In the previous case, with honor (if not a little red-faced) - but this - well...this is .... unfortunate. "It looks bad because it IS bad."
  5. Our racers don't drink enough

    And is there No Other place to buy this said cartoon of beer ? 'cause if so....well...there is difference between retail and wholesale !
  6. Classic Airstream motor home for sale

    P Wop, that is an awesome Regatta-mobile ! Man, a guy with the right selection of beach cats and skiffs could make a career out of cross-country yachting with that vessel.
  7. USS Lexington CV-2 discovered after 76 years

    Yes, Port Phillip, nearly everything coming aboard a carrier has arresting gear. Remember the violent 'trapping' of modern planes is a function of their speed - so, the lighter, smaller, much slower planes of the past wouldn't have imparted as much energy.
  8. What a money pit!

    Nice one Ajax. I like the new Scouts - definitely give a new Sportster a run for the money !
  9. NRA vs Russian Meddling in Politics

    How DARE a corporation express First amendment-like views, er, I mean, cross the "conservatives" Oh, and the NRA isn't even the staunchest group in the gun debate, by a long-shot.
  10. The Jefe is off again

    Wait...2,000 extra miles is no biggie but the 80 miles across the Kauai channel is ? Sorry we'll miss you, though.
  11. what was it?

    Come to Sailing Anarchy, get the whole story ! MORC really made for some cool boats. That Davidson 29 reminds me more than a bit of the Lidgard 29 - another boat with an awesome interior for a sub-30 footer that sails very well.
  12. Sir Durward Knowles

    100 years is a damn good run. Must be something in Star boats, my old college coach sailed them too and was still sailing in his mid-90s.
  13. Taser, Wayfarer, Scot - in that order. Oh, if you hate the winches, take 'em off. I worked at a sailing school and we ditched them and went to rope tails on the halyards. Worked fine. The Taser is harder to find, but is smaller and sails great, as does the Wayfarer.
  14. Anarchy III For Sale ??

  15. The Refit - Andrews 43

    Well done - should clean up well.
