      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.

    ...since I posted music vids about Rimas' demise and the reef I guess I owe it to post a video of his survival ..... A classic from GAYNOR perfected by CAKE.... I Will Survive...
  2. ....given the vagaries of maritime law you could possible add to those jurisdictions; ... location of accident if not in international waters....or flag country of damaged boat....I'm sure a maritime lawyer could suggest a half dozen more issues ....... (like a counter suit from the container owner for damage to their container owing to a failure to keep watch...aka the time tested " hey your boat scratched my anchor" defense )

    the sailing vessel Mimsey...played no part in this tragic norwegian blue - shcrodingeresque drama .... a beneteau would look exactly the same smashed on a fijian reef.... the boat's only role in this drama was to serve as an idahoan potato delivery system to the fish in fiji...

    they were next door to a tier one hospital. this is now a criminal investigation. Question is - were they not monitored or - was 911 called and there was slow to no response. with proximity to hospital why did staff not respond more quickly....turns out this only came to light when a doctor came to examine a heart patient...
