      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. Sextant manual needed

    whence i first doth lain I's on post it, i saw 'Sexual mutants needed....' alas what a disappointment this post hath wraught....
  2. Cape Dory 28

  3. how to ruin racing, part 2

    What is the point of post? Ie: to stop other anarchists to enter said event or just to blow off steam? Or legitimize ones heady existence? (either party). Someone said: 'I dont want to be a member of any club that would have me' [sic]. Theres always next year. Apologies. Mea culpas Mediation. Court action. For example.
  4. What is your favourite knot?

    Knot to put a too fine a point on it, ones Knautical knowledge kneads to know a few things. the dragon bowline for sure
  5. Connect your boat to The Cloud?

    yes but whats so funny about peace, love and understanding? IE: chart, compass, and separate gPS receivers?
  6. How to discourage "campers"?

    Agreed. I've learned tons in the time I've been hanging out here. In spite of the haters, assholes, and trolls there is still a lot of good stuff to be had. One of the coolest things I've experienced traveling the world is meeting up with anarchists that I've conversed with for years on line. So far in Oz I've made many new IRL friends after knowing them online for years, and I've even met up with a couple of Aussies I met in the US first, then caught up with them again here. one of the best threads ever was last years : 'stepping off for good'. your input was motivational: ie: was totally worth it. and the attempt to rid ones family of lotsa stuff!!
  7. What am I looking at?

    yes, mine spliced as well....
  8. Did you all miss me?

    the return is not as interesting as the forum suspension by the powers that be. thats all i gonna say bout that...
  9. Yes and make sure to have hot chix in shear as well. patreon account and lots of worthless interviews after: "yes we were scared, and counted our blessings and glad to survive the perfect storm wave while attempting not to get plastered on the break water..."
  10. Even with auto pilot et al, thats a lot of boat and sail area to manage. Yes, I've done some single handing and theres a lot to do. Such as Making tea, composing poetry in the cockpit and checking keel/rudder for kelp. Must be a dull day in Sandy Eggo....
  11. Wind - The Movie

    Competes with .... ...as the stupidest movie about cycling ever made. is this in Espo's dvd collection ;-) She was what we all wanted: 'a woman with a past..'
  12. The Catboat Project

    well now, thats a feline of a different feather. Indeed does she in fact, go to weather? With those paws I'd say she had better....alas not a cat boat, at least not to the letter....
  13. How to discourage "campers"?

    A 38 foot 'heavy' boat and no windlass? NO wonder he's short tempered.
  14. How to discourage "campers"?

    Lots of bravado here, but the reason I've not gotten 'into' it with anyone, is I'd b disturbing the peace and tranquility of the majority of anchorees (sic) who've done nothing untoward....but your point is well taken
  15. How to discourage "campers"?

    guitar amp is a great idea. I play bad enough should clear out any anchorage. I'll throw down the challenge right now. Considering all the $$ i've spent on lessons, guitars and song books, I am the worst 'guitarist' on the planet. FWIW, bass guitar is much better. the bass clef can be felt for miles!!
