      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.

    Milk works well when cutting lead with a chainsaw. Use somebody else's chainsaw as well.

    Would you like sympathy?

    Sounds like boatbuilding and sailing. Good times, and glad I did/still do it, although at a slightly slower rate these days. A lot people have very boring lives. I'd rather have mine every time.

    And I thought this was about a Russian spy trawler.

    Dammit, I should have put a bit more effort into it all.

    Wanna here mine?? I'm only 43 and falling apart at the seams. Might be time to get on a plane and see you for a 3-4 day culinary and wine trip. We can really 'whine' about it then!

    Unfortunately, sometimes you only get to play the hand that life deals, I feel sorry for you.

    I was wondering the same, a slightly erratic course as well.

    I did mention when this first blew up, if Mark Turner knew about all of this!

    Designed for killing bits of clay is the more common use, but a bit like a knife, screw driver or bottle of drain cleaner. They can be mis-used. But a good choice on your part for making sure it's stocked so well.

    One of the most spectacular PR backfires in sport for many years, not just sailing!

    Could be interesting, Jules Salter also have a bachelors and masters in degree in law!! The legal fight has only just begun!

    It’s a good shop, been there a couple of times.

    Stingrays always got the inside news, AC and Volvo.
