      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. Bermuda?

    If this is true, it could be the worst thing that's happened to Bermuda in a good, long while. The past 15 years has been a terrible time for that British Independent Overseas Territory; rampant (for a place like Bermuda) crime, a terrible economy, thuggish unions destroying the Islands' sterling reputation as a wonderful tourist destination, sky-high prices on, well, everything, and the total inability of the Islands' transportation infrastructure to handle the tourist population that it has now, even before the influx of Cup visitors. The government is corrupt, broken and divided, the population angry and resentful, and the situation keeps getting worse. This will prove to be one of two things: A triumphant return to greatness, or a well-publicized disaster for an already tottering country. I love the place, having spent a great deal of time there, starting in 1976, and want nothing but the best for Bermuda, but I'm afraid that the latter scenario is far more likely than the former.
