      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. Gun Recommendation

    Glock .40 with spare mag. (Glock 35 Gen4) Skip the revolvers, although they are great looking, but too hard to load when you really need it, even with a speed loader.
  2. Skip St Thomas. Fly into Roadtown. Charter from the Catamaran company, new or newer Lagoon Cats Take the first night sleep aboard option (evening arrival etc.). It lets everyone get comfortable with the boat and ready for the next day. Like all the charter companies, you can pre-order provisions or go shopping on your own. Spanish harbour also has a small grocery/liquor store. Try to get to Anegada as well
  3. Best Science Fiction Movies

    Forbidden Planet, it broke so many barriers at the time. Interesting how many Philip K Dick stories have made the big screen, superb talent there.
  4. Great article here: Seven leadership lessons from a sailing course Nothing new for experienced folks, but good to see the sport of sailing used in this way.
  5. Marblehead to Halifax 2017

    This thread is dead quiet... Is anyone going besides Rail Meat and me?????
  6. OSTAR/TWOSTAR race(s)

    HarmonII and Tamarind. Not sure what the 3rd boat is yet.
  7. What an Asshole

    Or he may have PTSD from something. Small events can just set things off sometimes.
  8. Uber tipping

    I used it in Manhattan 2 wks ago, no pobs.
  9. Microsoft Canada Scam

    I did, and I have the mastercard black card. They said I agreed to this somehow and have asked for the "e-mail transcript" of what happened. How many people ask for an e-mail transcript of things they do everyday? Well, I guess I do now... There's no micro9soft store in Halifax, there's only 3 in all of Canada I think. I can't believe MS is this stupid.... I feel like it's a scam. Hence my warning to others. I'm not on Twitter or Facebook so fell free to post if you like. It does not work that way, anything a 3rd party posts is a rant. As i said direct access to in reality 3rd level support, that over views the minions. A slower but effective process is via ms support/ help, that again is viewed by the powers that be not just in house by a sub contractor.Feel free to continue an imaginary can not recover this issue, old school style. Ok you win! Good ideas, thanks, I'll see where it leads.

  11. Microsoft Canada Scam

    Unfortunately, I put my trust in corporate honesty. Lesson learned there I guess but I have always had great luck with that. FWIW My wife said I was getting scammed from the get go. Also FWIW, I requested a call log/summary of today's conversation and they had to ask me for my e-mail, which they should've had on file already, and I still haven't herard from them with an answer to my inquiry. It stinks...
  12. Microsoft Canada Scam

    I sent my non functioning Surface Rt back to "Microsoft" and they promised me a Surface 3 for $479 with a keyboard/pen etc. I received a Surface RT (non Windows 10 compatible) back after billing me $650 for the privilege of doing business with MS; on top of what I paid for the original RT!. After going through their "escalation" process, I still don't have an answer after 1 week of dealing with them, being on hold for an hour at a time, numerous times, at least etc. Contact reference point from MS Canada that I've used include: Microsoft Canada Inc. The Canada office supports: Saint Pierre and Miquelon 1950 Meadowvale Blvd Mississauga, Ontario L5N 8L9 Canadian Head Office: (905) 568-0434 Customer Inquiries: (877) 568-2495 Microsoft TT/TDD: (905) 568-9641 Microsoft Order Centre: (800) 933-4750 They all lead to non Microsoft providers that will take your credit card # etc and provide service initially, but fraud you in the end etc. Lock point: When I asked the agent to send me an e-mail about what we just discussed, and then asked what domain name the e-mail would be coming from, he couldn't answer me. I'm out $700 for my own stupidity, save yourself. I wouldn't trust any Microsoft products anymore. Now I feel dumb, hope others won't after this.
  13. Deviation Anarchy

    True Virgins Make Dull Companions....Add Whiskey
  14. New Leadership at US Soccer

    There was an election????
