      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.

    (At the risk of getting flamed.....) So, what is the SA guidance on when a bowman-in-training can actually call himself a bowman? a) Can identify bow of the boat from the stern? Can correctly spell 'bowman' two out of three times? c) Can make it through a race without screwing up? d) Can make it through a season without screwing up? e) Joins the Union? f) Can call wind/knocks/lifts at least 10 boat lengths out? g) Sustains a life-threatening injury do to someone else's FUBAR? h) Can simutaneously raise the Kite/drop the Jib in 30 seconds without assistance of a mast or pit? i) Other?
