      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. Monterrey. If I drag my Weta out to Ca. Monterrey Bay, the aquarium and as much of that peninsula as possible. Who wants to lead a California Weta safari, how much will it cost, and who do I send a check to? When?
  2. FL Alligators?!?! and pythons oh my! For those actually interested, I have over nighted on my Weta. I waited for perfect weather, particularly wind, launched midday, at about 2:00 a.m. I got sleepy, ran up on the beach and just curled up on the tramp. Slept 'til sunrise and continued on my way. A small box holds a stove, sleep pad, tarp, lantern, flashlight, bug net and sundry items. I didn't use any of it, just pulled a beach towel over my head to keep my ears warm and slept in my foulies. If you're tired, you'll sleep. This was during the full moon phase which coincides with extreme tides so I awakened on Sanibel beach with lots of locals already about with flashlights and cameras searching the flats for sea critters.
  3. How long is too long? In Florida, from Boca Grande (Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte) to Flamingo ranger station at the very tip of the peninsula there are unlimited beaches and coves to pull into for the night. Of course the mosquitoes would carry you away at most times of the year so winter would be the best time for a Florida Raid.
  4. Holy shit!
  5. 410? I gotta see him on a scale. Can he move? Does he have any stamina? What grade level? 3A? http://www.tomahawknation.com/2015/2/4/7976895/florida-state-recruiting-2015-offensive-line-fsu "Florida State cleaned up along the offensive line on National Signing Day 2014, bringing in seven fantastic offensive linemen, and it has brought in four more on National Signing Day 2015."
  6. I like this. We should have one, maybe move it around every year so people can see new places.
  7. I agree with the basic premise, but - wow - talk about displaying the same over-entitled, arrogant attitude that's backfiring on Dermer & Bibi. Are these folks trying[/i[ to lower the american public's support for israel? Everyone in D.C. and Tel Aviv believe the sheeple can simply be ignored. I see no reason to doubt it.

  12. Thy sea, O God, so great, My boat so small. It cannot be that any happy fate Will me befall Save as Thy goodness opens paths for me hrough the consuming vastness of the sea. Thy winds, O God, so strong, So slight my sail. How could I curb and bit them on the long And saltry trail, Unless Thy love were mightier than the wrath Of all the tempests that beset my path? Thy world, O God, so fierce, And I so frail. Yet, though its arrows threaten oft to pierce My fragile mail, Cities of refuge rise where dangers cease, Sweet silences abound, and all is peace. ~Winfred Ernest Garrison
