      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.

    Damn, I haven't laughed that hard in a while. I hope I'm not flicked from the cruising website, this is hilarious!
  2. Italian cruise ship tragedy

    I agree with this. Over 4000 people successfully deployed to lifeboats and safely moved to shore - that's a huge achievement. An accurate count of survivors and suspected count of the missing immediately after the disaster - bravo. That is no small task. In any emergency there are going to be some people who go to the wrong places and end up in the drink or down below. If it's only a few people or even a few dozen, that has to be expected, I would think. There will also be survivors who complain about chaos. Yeah, your fucking ship got holed and sank! Did you expect it would be like a ride at Disneyland with an organized que, step on, sit down and step off with a happy voice over the intercom telling you what to do at every step of the way? There's a lot of information still to come but from what I see so far, well done to the crew who got so many people successfully onto dry land. Looks like every lifeboat on the side above water was successfully deployed. As to why this happened, I look at it this way: thousands of these big shitters plying the waters of all corners of the planet. What could possibly go wrong, right? Some of these cattle barges are going down to Davy Jones's Locker, no matter what.
  3. How We Do It

    I dig the new blog, and the new forum. More goodies in one place means more things to do on SA. Most importantly, you have added social media freedom to the boards. The boards were already good but I believe they'll be better thanks to the new interactive options. I would guess that I'm one among many who is tired of browsing through so many topics on the boards which I don't care about. The new options should allow me to get to the things that interest me faster. How can that not be a good thing? Cheers
