      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.

  5. Where to dinghy sail off-season?

    Hey, We sail year round here..... If you turned up at our club we could put you in a boat every Sunday. Sailing school in the morning, racing in the afternoon. Dinghies, skiffs, moths. OK through our winter every 4th Sunday or so..... But it is spring now and almost summer. Book your ticket to Brisbane and come down to Manly and say hello. Darling Point Sailing Squadron. http://websites.sportstg.com/assoc_page.cgi?assoc=10477&pID=1 There you go....

    Hey, He has had that thing for sale for awhile. I posted it way back. It was up on the Brisbane River maybe opposite the Botanic Gardens. You should see the extra 'keels' that it stands on,,,,, If he actually cleared all the crap out it 'maybe' alright.
