      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. espo is a dick

    After 1200 + posts it is clear that there is no consensus. Maybe we should ask a simpler question; If Espo were a fish, what type of fish would he be?

    I just hope to one day be the person my dog thinks I am.

    Great string of post Elle, thanks. Shift spot on.

    On a much lighter note (as this thread is not going to change anyone's mind and only bring out the worst in people). A good friend of mine had a Portugese Water Dog that was afraid of the water. The dog died a few years ago but every now and then I'll think about him and recall his fear of the water and it still makes me chuckle. PWDs are a whacky breed. wife got it cause it doesn't damage all her interior decorating. We have been fortunate cause most of the PWD's I've met are a bit tense and not real good "pets" in the wrestle with your kids, lick the neighbors, and curl up around your toes on cold winter nights. Boomer on the other hand is completely nuts -- him and the baby are best friends and spend all day playing together. HOwever, a PWD in the white house is an international incident waiting to happen. For example, they better not leave the briefcase with the launch codes sitting on a table -- cause they will end up chasing the dog all over the property with it. Nice! PWDs are a whacky breed - I hear they take after their master.

    You lost me. WTF? Aw C'mon. I didn't really lose you. I believe Pit Bull owners are a subset of society and I am prejudiced against that perceived subset. My checklist of traits is pretty darned accurate...Or so I believe. I bet the percentage of people who sail and own Pit Bulls is lower than the percentage of people who fly rebel flags and own Pit Bulls. OK, I understand. I'll reluctantly agree with the stereotype, but I don't think that LSG or OGFD fit it, do you? I do believe that for the most part there is no such thing as a bad dog only bad owners. I'm pretty sure that Michael Vick could fuck up any dog, is that the dogs fault or his?

    Good point, the same could be said of people having children.

    Do you think you can hang with us???? I think you might be too soft. I had a pic of you and your pal in NYC on Halloween I knew that would come back to haunt me one day. Dammit. I'm really a pretty tough guy- it takes self-confidence to parade around like that, not to mention imperviousness to cold if you're doing it in NYC in October. True that! OK as long as you bring your little Asian pal along--you can come. WTF? Gays and gooks on Hustler... did you fall off the wagon? Whay is your obsession with John/Hustler/Gays? Do you want to tell the world something? He doesn't need to tell us anything--we already know (not that there is anything wrong with it) That explains the best of the village people I saw below when I sailed with you - it all makes sense.

    But does he buy sails? He doesn't have to--he wills them into existence I'm in awe, truly.

    Sure it was the PHRF rating. Why don't you race One Design (oh never mind).
