      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. never fuckin' mind

    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. . . . . . . . I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?

    I believe she was originally called "Slip Sliding Away" and, as correctly identified elsewhere in the thread, was a G&S one tonner from the lakes. The one-tonner SSA was a J/N, unless I am mistaken. The 35-footer was a G&S though. The one-ton SSA was a G&S. I spent one miserable summer on the boat. Almost every delivery was upwind with the #4 that year with an engine that needed air bled out of the system every hour…However I don't think that this boat was the old SSA as SSA had a grid track system for the genoas (unless the subsequent owner wised up a got rid of it….). Spit Fire, originally owned by Horst Queck currently sailed out of Waukegan YC by Jim Helquist. Won their sectioin in the 2000 Mac I believe.

    Some of the old Poltergiest crew are dropping Joel off at Greys Reef this years Mac, racing on Hasten. I'll need to have a Miller lite for Tom and a Becks for Joel. Fair winds Don't forget a Miller Lite for Al and once we hit the island mucho Monte Gay & Tonics for Dana!
