      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.

  3. PHRF had it a little faster than a J 125. And that seemed fair to me.

  5. NFL 2017

    OMG He has his helmet on backwards!
  6. used 4 seat convertibles under 8k?

    Billy, You will be much better off with two sets of tire and wheels. All season tires are a poor compromise. Real snow tires out perform all season tires in any ice or snow situation. And high performance summer tires bring out the best in your WRX,
  7. Dreadlocks needs a new home

    I am thinking the OD problems might be on the inside.

  9. Darwin doubled down here in our small town.

    They needed a longer runway.

    Anyone know where the "Urban Assault Vehicle" from Stripes is? PB can play Sgt Hulka.

    That's right, blame the bow guy! It is easy to do from fantasyland. edit. Damn, fucket beat me by a nano-second. Well done sir.
  14. Asymmetric spinnaker vs poled out jib

    Whoa there! I am not a sailmaker. I create work for loft rats with my skillful bow work. My not well worded reply was to try the jib first. I'll bet that your old woody will go straight down with a poled out jib more effectively than playing a-kite angles with your social security crew. You already have the jib, just try it. If the assym boats beat you regularly then spend the money.
