      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. Our Beloved mainsheetgirl

    I can't for the life of me remember if I ever met her, but I've known (of) Catherine since she broke onto the SA scene so dramatically a few years ago. I've sailed a few races in Corpus, and we certainly had some friends in common. Anyway, I was getting out of Easter vigil Mass when I got the text that she was gone (yeah, didn't hear till Sat night) and my sweetie and I sat up till all hours drinking, listening to Radiohead, and just being close. Life is NOT short, it's the longest thing you do...but MSG's should have been so much longer. I still can't read this thread w/out crying. Fair winds, Catherine! and thanks to/for all the kind words from around the world.

    Thank y'all, and tuff it out, MSG...I can't remember if I've met you in person, tho we have a fair number of friends in common in the Corpus sailing scene.
  3. Bacon Anarchy

    How did that work out for you? All I can picture is a flare up to end all flare ups. And a smell to die for. Don't know about the OP, but I've done it lots of times, both on the charcoal grill with the hamburgers (yeah, flaring's an issue) and on my indirect smoker. The latter works great because of the lack of flaring, and because the grease can fall freely thru the grating. You can get less-greasy bacon at any level of softness or hardness, plus there's the new smoke flavor. If the smoker's running at breakfast time (or I just feel like a snack while cooking) I'll throw some on. Good luck!
