      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.

  6. F@#%ing Mice in car anarchy.

    Mice need three things to live: Food, Water, Shelter. Remove anyone of the three, they are gone. Your car/garage is providing shelter and food and water is found plentiful outside. New car wiring uses an insulating coating made of soybean. Many cars are being re-wired as they are eating the insulating coating on your wires. Probably the cause of your light on your dash. The song, "Three Blind Mice" is true, they are blind. If you ever see them, they run along walls, as their whiskers guide their path against the wall. Put your traps against the walls, not 1 inch away, right up against the wall. Peanut butter is just fine for their eating. They do leave a scent where they travel for themselves and their family to follow. After eradicating, scrubbing the place down is advisable.
  7. Growing a fleet with realistic goals

    Whatever type of boat, if there are any for sale, go buy them yourself, tow them back to your house, fix them up and make them ready for sail and for sale to the people you talk to.
  8. Growing a fleet with realistic goals

    One to one, mano e mano. See people, call people on the phone. Do not think for a moment that any electronic message is going to convince anyone to buy a boat and race it. Electronic means can keep them up to date on activities once they own a boat.
