      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. Actually I kind of like this one These kids nowadays don't know how easy they've got it, back in the day we had to slog thru mud all the time. -DSK
  2. You mean, like this? -DSK
  3. Hah! I already saw a photo of that statue, I think it's in the Kama Sutra Good one though -DSK
  4. Not sure what it is, but that pic has the look of an old Polaroid. Those cars would be worth a hell of a lot more than that boat, today FB- Doug
  5. That's a great name but I bet they don't ship it this far. Anyway I just popped a Fat Tire in your honor I've never cared for IPAs either but try to keep a few on hand for friends. What beer goes good with ice cream? FB- Doug
  6. I said "I think" not "I know." I may be a smart ass but generally try to be more smart and less ass. Can you point to some statement I've made in favor of gun-grabbing, or are just being spiteful? -DSK
  7. Excellent. Thanks, Brass FB- Doug
  8. Kids generally do respond better to sailing with other kids; OTOH this may be a different kind of case. I can certainly see going sailing as a sort of quality time. The problem is 1- she is likely to be bored and 2- she is likely on the threshold of that age where being in the presence of a parent ins unspeakably uncool. Go to a sailing class together? Cure for boredom, takes away the aspect of "dad in charge" making it uncool. Join a club that's got a good youth program and welcomes parents as volunteers? Unfortunately there is not one of those on every corner, but it's worth looking at. I see buying a boat as not the best option right now. FB- Doug
  9. [shrug] OK then. The red line, right next to the topping lift, pulls up the gate to the lions pen. And get me another beer, wudja? FB- Doug
  10. Another way to look at it: they're already being punished. If we show mercy, some may turn out OK. And we can always run them off later. To R_33, ignore the boring jibber jabber on the side. Unless you're actually a spy for those Wooden Boat Forum guys. FB- Doug
  11. And no talk about WHAT KIND OF BOAT ??? FB- Doug
  12. Huh? "Rosenberg" is a fine old Irish name........... -DSK
  13. That's a good one. The NC at museum brought a Rodin exhibit years ago; there were a bunch of works there that were magnificent. -DSK
  14. I thought making fun of Brent -WAS- the topic?? FB- Doug
  15. Who? Has some meanie been stomping on tender little feelings over in WBF? Hmm, I thought having a wooden boat would one tough... FB- Doug
