      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. Stopping by for my second cup of coffee.......
  2. Lovin' you GR8 Guys & Gals!
  3. .... maybe the next generation of freestanding rigs won't have wishbones. Here's Van de Stadt's "swing rig". "> Awesome. Where's a link?
  4. MSG, "Our time here is different, but when we get there, we will get there at the same time."
  5. sure will...wishing mr jones, family and friends peace and love. Doc, Absolutely! This thread was started years ago by Shaun to be a place for all of us to support and celebrate anyone living with cancer, or any other major challenges to life that might show up. Our little SA world in this thread has revolved around dear Catherine (as well it should) for the last half year, just as she was a big part of the support network here for others facing the battle long before she did herself. I obviously can't speak for Cateherine, but I'm fairly certain that she would also applaud any strength that we can all share with everyone (and their caregivers) fighting similar battles. My thoughts go out to Allen and his family and friends as well. Sending positive energy your way now! My gratitude & blessings to all.
  6. A good and gentle man, a sailor who sailed my current waters before I arrived here, is going down as I write this. If you can spare a kind thought or two, please send it or them toward Allen Jones' space. We'll hold it open as long as possible. Blessings.
  7. Good thought. 'Way it ought to be!
  8. You guys are my heroes.................................
  9. Fist bump from the Left-Wing Coast!
  10. Yesterday we said good-bye to a favorite fellow skipper, Chi Chi Sanford. She sailed her last race three weeks before cancer took her because, in her own words, "I have crew."
  11. Well said!
  12. Best of good fortune to you.
  13. Trophy Wife and I have admired these forever. Send me your pix (email) and I'll set up your posting them!
  14. Absolutely! Any sailor going one-design or level-racing, at the expense of a handicapped fleet, is a step in the right direction. All handicapped systems are arbitrary; all one-design fleets offer pure sport.
  15. Good for her!
