      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. Explain Cricket

    cricket comes in many forms, it is one thing to get a handle on the rules and names of stuff, but VERY different to understand the strategies of the game. My youngest brother & Dad are into cricket, I find it interesting to watch a game with my brother as he is good at explaining the strategies, I tried to watch a game without him & I am sure it would be MASSIVELY more interesting to watch grass grow. anyhow, here is a link on how Mericans splain cricket to Mericans and another splainin with pictures ML
  7. Rough Gemstone Cutting

    I chimed in here cuz I have a little bit of knowledge, by the appearance of your cutting skills (V-nice) - your little bit is bigger than mine ! My forte is more tumbling/polishing/setting and spotting original colours Vs irradiated. Never told Evo I was into this, he would have told me what a crock of shit it was & I should get a 'real' interest. RIP Evo. Enjoy the show Dave, let us know where it leads you with your cutting. ML
