      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.

    Sorry to hear, NG. Wishing you and your family courage as you accompany your aunt and uncle down this path.
  2. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    That's a lot to handle for one week, LarryE. I'm sorry for your losses, and I hope you're surrounded by family and friends.

    Thank you for sharing her work, MSS. She always had a way with words.

    Tom, I'm sorry you had to learn what you did - but glad you were able to bring him some relief. Peace. (And fuck cancer!)
  5. Are you worried about Ebola coming here?

    Shouldn't that be a new thread?

    That's a lovely memory, furr_ball.

    Hi furr_ball. Yes, Nancy, my friend and neighbour passed. She passed in Sept, and I was thinking about her. We all talk grace and courage .. She exhibited both in spades, but Fuck that, I'd rather have her back. The world needs more of her kind, not fewer. So as Fuck Cancer was weaving through my mind, I remembered this thread. Take the words. i giggle at the thought of SA posts being copyrighted ... Scooter thought he had lawyer troubles before! Mario that's fabulous news. Keep sailing faster than cancer can swim Fuck cancer indeed, LH. I'm glad yours was only a scare, and hope for best outcomes for your family. Dain, for me it's a box of memories that usually leaves me smiling through tears, (still reciting Fuck Cancer)

    It has been over a year without a post here. I wish that meant a year without cancer touching SAers or their loved ones. The lamp is still in the window and the kettle is always on. Those who've been here know that, those who don't know, should. RIP Nancy - by god you were the epitome of strength and courage.
  9. Anyone Contract Ebola Today (August 10)?

    One of our Sierra Leone staff diagnosed. Just say a little prayer, please. He was evacuated to France so the US doesn't have to worry, but he's a son, a husband, a father and for all of those reasons deserves a kindly thought if not supplication. Thank you.
  10. Who is snaggletooth

    he?Aw just face it ... I'm irresistable (inside joke with One of Five) Does that have anything to do with you being Dutch? Probably.
