      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. Yeah, I'm not too worried yet. After election day in Brisbane we came in to the docks. Dock Dude: "So, are we supposed to bow down to you guys now or something since Trump got elected?" Me: "Nah, a simple 'Seig Heil' will do." Mutual laughs. Naive mofo's, eh? Well BJ, You could always take refuge in America's Bay on Pittwater if you have to: 33 35.736 S 151 15.112 E But I think the worst you are going to get is Aussies calling you a "poor bastard" (an Aussie term of endearment). We are all too busy checking the internet in the morning and laughing our arses off about what Don has done whilst we were asleep. I don't know if Donald is checking his TV ratings each day but they must be huge. Better than anything he did with "the apprentice" PS don't forget the Superbowl is on Monday morning, I hope you are all set up. Does Donald get to go? I bet his best mate Tom Brady could organise a ticket if he doesn't have one. I won't be watching the Superbowl. Non-zero chance the Pats might win, and I can't abide seeing that. Thank gawd I'm not in New England anymore to listen to all the non-stop bragging, chest thumping, and whining about the unfair treatment of Trump's pal Brady. Gotta take the small things, though I get enough of that shite in my Facebook feed from all my friends back there. I will have watch NFL game pass at work and will be "rooting" for Atlanta and hopeing Kyle Shanahan can bring some magic to the 49ers next year. PS: always wanted to say that I was "rooting" for a team, it has such a different meaning in Aus.
  2. Looks like our Malcolm did piss off Trump as he made it to Trump's Twitter feed (is that a compliment being abused on Twitter by Donald?) http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/us-says-trump-will-honour-refugee-deal-as-shorten-demands-answers-20170202-gu3x7e.html Sounds like Malcolm didn't grovel but stood up to him: "Malcolm has stood up for Australia, he actually had a row with the President of the United States and he hasn't crowed about it, he has since gotten on with the job," the cabinet minister said, speaking on condition of anonymity." Australian government officials were shocked and blind-sided by the tweet Mr Trump put out on Thursday afternoon. The brutal question they now face is how they are going to manage the relationship when, after Mr Turnbull observed diplomatic courtesy and refused to comment on The Washington Post's report, Mr Trump without warning issued a tweet that humiliates one of the US's closest allies. Some in Canberra speculated that Steve Bannon, Mr Trump's close and most ideologically fierce adviser, may have leaked the details about the call in order to demonstrate that even if Mr Trump eventually accepts the refugee deal, he is doing so only grudgingly and angrily. Relations between the nations were plunged into confusion on Thursday after a bombshell report in The Washington Post detailed that President Trump had called the arrangement the "worst deal ever", called the Saturday phone call "the worst call by far" he had had with a world leader and that the President had hung up on Mr Turnbull after just 25 minutes when the two men spoke.

  4. that would still be easier than stepping over the drunken aussie yobbos and pommy and Irish backpackers passed out on the beach
  5. Yes as you can see the skiff club is in the background of the photo. BUT he must look out for ferries as he ventures home at closing time
  6. So I have seen this yacht anchored around Manly (Sydney) for a few weeks and was able to catch a photo today when I walked into Manly for Australia Day. Happy Australia Day BJ. I hope you are having a good time and have avoided the recent southerlies
