      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.

    Glad Justin is safe and kudos for a great rescue. Safe passage to Bermuda gents.
  6. Broken Rib Anarchy

    That sucks. I broke four ribs last fall and tore cartilage... It's still not 100% but on the mend slowly. The ribs took 8-10 weeks before I could cough without wincing. I found a heating pad helped but I couldn't explain why. Oh - and good scotch is a must to go to sleep in the recliner...
  7. Washington DC Anarchy

    We had our car and the only time we used it was to head out to Dulles. Maybe an Uber to get out there as the Metro doesn't go there. Anyone else have an idea? It was about a 35 minute ride.
  8. Washington DC Anarchy

    My wife and I brought our six year old to DC last year for 5 days - he still talks about it! The metro is a blessing - you'll love it - fast, clean and easy to use. We did the Smithsonian Air & Space at Dulles and it was the best thing we did all week. But - go on a Tuesday or Wednesday and the crowds will be thin. Also - go to the Air & Space on the Mall first cause you'll be disappointed in that museum if you see it after seeing the SR-71, Space Shuttle etc... We did an on/off bus tour of all the major monuments and that was perfect. Not sure how old your kids are but Arlington Cemetary is really stunning. There are tons of simple restaurants all around so don't worry about that at all. The national zoo was fun and the national cathedral is something else. Though... having to pay to go into the cathedral left a sour taste after going to every other museum for free... Finally - bring really good walking shoes and bring some cases of water for the hotel - you can save a couple of hundred dollars on water bottles alone. Cheers

  10. Our Beloved mainsheetgirl

    Got up this morning and saw this sad news... Went for a 20 mile bike ride and had tears streaming - for a woman I had never met in person. Godspeed Catherine - truly a special soul...
  11. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    Hi Catherine - hope your day is going well. I've decided in the last few weeks to sign up for the Pan Mass Challenge Bicycle event in Massachusetts this coming August. It's a two day event that raised $35 million for Dana Farber Cancer Institute in 2011. The goal this year is $36 million - absolutely amazing! 100% of that amount goes to Dana Farber - a testament to the great work by this group. I'll ride for my dad who lost his battle, my mom who for the time has won hers and for those that can't ride... and of course you! Take care of yourself - and never stop fighting...

    Mr. Churchill said it best... Never Give In...
  13. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    I'm a lesser person for never having met you Catherine. May God cradle you in his arms and your friends be consoled by your warm smile...

    Godspeed - thoughts and prayers are headed your way. Form the man himself - never give in... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=vzh-xq65rMs
