      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.

    No.

    In addition to the mast crane at Burnham Park Yacht Club, there are two boat ramps within the harbor. I see you intend to load and go to Wyoming. A transporter with boat handling skills will be your easiest solution, but most of those teams are at home on the interstate, not the water. PM me for some suggestion of local rigger/deliverers.

    I suspect they are most concerned with a Timothy McVeigh boater re-enacting a Yemen harbor moment as one motors out of the mouth of the harbor about 100' from the plate glass of McCormmick.

    Is it so hard to proof what you are posting and take out all the "noise" so it is readable? Dearest, yep. It would be too hard. Working on tiny phone keyboard, and the noise didn't show up until posted. Now turn your attention back to the topic at hand. ... A couple hundred boats in the "care" of the authorities dragging them to somewhere else so we can enjoy them on Saturday, May 19. I see some issues here.

    "....."When I looked at a global picture of that, I saw a lot of boats," said Frank Benedetto, head of the U.S. Secret Service in Chicago, who is relatively new in town. "Talking to a lot of people here, a lot of people who have those boats, they don't really care about NATO G-8, they want to go on their boat on a beautiful weekend in May."<br style="color: rgb(41, 39, 39); font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 21px; text-align: left; "><br style="color: rgb(41, 39, 39); font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 21px; text-align: left; ">But coming the 19th of that month, they'll care, too, as Benedetto said pleasure craft will be cleared out of Burnham Harbor for the meetings of world leaders at the nearby McCormick Placeconvention center.<br style="color: rgb(41, 39, 39); font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 21px; text-align: left; "><br style="color: rgb(41, 39, 39); font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 21px; text-align: left; ">The harbor is typically about 50 percent full that time of year, he said, but the boats will be temporarily moored someplace else at no cost to their owners. " - today's Trib What does "temporarily moored someplace else" mean?? All hooked together and dragged to 31st St Marina? This ought to be a goat rodeo.
