      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.

    Guess?
  1. but do they show up significantly better with a reflector? or are thy just hard to spot whatever they do - apart from an active transponder As mentioned before... they show up significantly better with reflector! you might be the reason the merchant ships call yacht sailors WAFIs or Wind Assisted Fucking Idiots
  2. When the Sea is flat you can spot really small objects with your radar. When the sea gets rougher you will start to get a lot of interference from the waves. A lot of this interference can be filtered out but small echos ,your yacht without an octahedral reflector, will also be filtered out and you will run the risk to be run over by a big merchant ship.
