      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. Paris (Kiwi Spirit) calls it quits

    yeah, well, he's clearly got more money than sense
  2. Paris (Kiwi Spirit) calls it quits

    Well, no one can call him quitter. And he's 80. Maybe a man's reach really should exceed his grasp.

    I think stormfuck is what happens when you get caught with your 140 up in 40 knots of wind.

  11. Indeed. They seem like good eggs. And hard working. Really too bad they didn't drop by here for some kind and gentle guidance.
  12. Five months "adrift"?!?

    They make Rimas look downright knowledgable.
  13. Coolboats to admire

    Try saying that with a Kiwi accent.
  14. People in Yemen or Madagascar usually don't have choices. In our world nearly everyone does. They just can't admit it because then they'd have to accept responsibility for where they are in life. For the better part of my life I wanted to have some kind of sailing adventure. It required three boats and years of slow, steady effort to get my wife to agree to 'my' dream trip, but despite being married, two full time jobs and two kids we made it happen. Sailed the good ship Kestrel from Rhode Island to the Caribbean and back over a 7 month period. Easily the most rewarding thing I've ever done. Well, aside from being a dad. Now the funny thing is my wife might be more ready that me to chuck it all and do it again for even longer. Last night she was watching some videos I put together form the trip and said "I want to go back." I said we probably would at some point. She says, "No. NOW." Me: "OK, but we're gonna need a bigger boat." She: "I'll start looking at boat porn." You could knock me over with a feather. Make it happen SC.
