      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. If you liked the Peter F. Hamilton books, just keep going. There's five more books in the Commonwealth, spread out over several thousand years but with some recurring characters. The Dreaming Void The Evolutionary Void The Temporal Void The Abyss Beyond Dreams A Night Without Stars Historical fiction, check out The Terror by Dan Simmons, about the lost Franklin expedition to the Arctic
  2. To stuff your family, your friends, and two dogs on board, you'd need 2 Macs catted together with a 2x6 Douglas fir platform on top. Maybe some sono tube stuck into the mast collars. I'm sure he can handle it.
  3. "There's 30,000 islands in the Pacific, all of them tropical paradises..." Must not be talking about Guam
