      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. World Schooner Cup

    I'm in Lunenburg now. It's snowing gently. Just a great town.
  2. World Schooner Cup

    Sadly, Bluenose II can't compete, per her charter.
  3. World Schooner Cup

    Maybe not of interest to the vast majority of SA members, but..... www.worldschoonercup.org It's going to be a ton of fun. I'm in Lunenburg (NS) right now, checking out the options. Thanks, Carl

    Hoisted indeed, Sloop. I couldn't agree more. I think we at WoodenBoat should produce a calendar, 12 images, of these types of abominations. Or the characters that are behind them. First off in the modern era would be Donald Crowhurst... I think there's a good continuum between him and the Rod. And I'm sure we could all come up with 10 worthy candidates in between.
