      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. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    Just back from visiting my brother & family for my niece's high school graduation. SiL is doing fantastically. Her drain comes out tomorrow, swelling is much decreased, sense of humour completely in tact. We enjoyed a belly-laugh about a T-shirt she'd heard about. A woman who has had a double-mastectomy and reconstruction, proudly sports a T-shirt that says "Yes, they're fake. The originals tried to kill me!" Laughter ... the best medicine I saw a woman wearing this T-shirt at this past weekend's Bayview One Design Regatta. Perfect! M.

    Howdy from north of the border! It's another day - one with you. M.

    Top of the afternoon to you! Even middle aged memory cannot affect my thoughts of you:D . I may have forgotten to have a "real" drink last night and forgot my nephew's birthday yesterday, but I have not forgotten all my thoughts about you. I will apply all my anarchist will power and toast that drink to you this evening. Lots of hugs and peace, M.

    Good morning Catherine! It is a sunny day, with a good breeze. May you find peace in knowing that you have the best fan club of anyone, anywhere in this Universe. Big hug, M.

    Howdy, Point taken - People, our voice of reason has once again prevailed. The time is indeed now and of course in the future has well. M.

    Catherine, A few years ago I was very fortunate to meet an anarchist (you!) that up until that time I only knew via e-mail correspondence. I was sooo lucky. Your sense of humour in your greeting (calling me while hidden behind a car and then when I asked where you were, you walked out from behind the car and told me that you weren't too far away.) Driving up and down US1 looking for a party store, partially lost, knowing only that as long as we went back and forth eventually (hopefully) we would find ourselves back in Coconut Grove. Exhausted after a long day on the water, giggling, while we filled out "From Tricia" on 50 packages of sweet tarts that had lovey dovey messages on them. Sitting at the kitchen table chatting. Your escapades with the repair man and the laundry room washing machine. It didn't work because you were using Canadian quarters. Race Committee and making the drive in rush hour traffic just so we could visit. Your "Smithsonianesque" Jesus collection. A true friend. A wonderful individual. Why she will be taken at such a young age is one of life's mysteries we will never understand. Peace, fair winds, hugs and prayers. M.

    Hello Catherine, Thank you for the update. Glad to hear you on the mend. Drink Boost - (my Stepdad was a fan of these when he was on Chemo). Great for the calories and the energy. (check your phone, I think I have filled up your mailbox. ) Big Hugs, AS

    Catherine, Keep going, and most important for your next step take the post of NWSOLING, have it laminated and hand it out to all those who will be, in person, interacting with you daily for the next few months. I know I couldn't have provided you with this information better myself. My stepdad - just a wonderful human being - went through colon surgery and then chemo. My Mom, who used to do palliative care, followed these steps to the letter. It really makes a different - especially the timing of the anti-nausea drugs - in how you are able to weather the treatment. And yes it will work! You go girl! Big hug, M. (and if you need some entertainment, push the morphine pump a few extras times during the night. I did this when I was in the hospital, and it kept the pain management team hopping : ) )

    It's not unusual to be loved by anyone........... Too funny! You have to admit - it was a pretty good act. M. Thanks for the thanks Madge. I wasn't the only one out there. Re Mr. Tom, people were definitely hanging around for the show. People were taking pictures, so it definitely happened. At least a vid was up, including Tom and his dancing talent. www.tahr.ca Sounds like we're there again this weekend. My shout Madge. Wow! Thanks - I will see you on the dock. Cheers, M.

    BINGO!!! My neighbours, up the street, have 3 cats that roam wherever the please. They use my garden and porch as their litter box. My neighbours don't see it to be a problem. I have new neighbours next door. They LOVE cats (I don't) and leave food out on their porch. Now the local cat population lives on their porch and my porch. As well the local raccoon population have sent out a memo to the masses letting them all know that there is free food to be had at a certain address. The neighbour on the other side me can't stand cats either. It is slowly becoming a major issue. (rant finished - back to designated topic). M.
