      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.

    They don't want the competition to their own networks.
  2. 4 hr working day

    Dude's just mailing it in. Fuckwit. He needs to be the first man on Mars, hopefully by next Thursday.
  3. Climate news

    You are laboring under a misconception. The cows aren't crazy, they are pissed off. I would be too.
  4. We seem to actually be cruising??

    I think she needs to bacon grease your beard into twin points. You'll be a big fan with the gulls, not so much with your SO.
  5. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    Like your state of consciousness.
  6. Prop size for an Erickson 35

    That seems to be too small, unless there is some issue with tip clearance. I swing a 17X10 on a C&C 35.
  7. Valiant 42 raised salon

    It's OK, you can buy the mod kit and nail it on.
  8. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    You owe double tits.

    They are notoriously hard of hearing. They also don't fly. https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/magazine/1989/09/10/hes-not-making-this-up/197bac9e-b668-4b4d-96db-d7f357f83588/?utm_term=.58bd946bdc0b

    Have fun and sail safe.
  11. Standing rigging: pressed-in pin?

    I'm thinking that pin is probably a piece of rod rigging, so likely easy to replace. I agree with the concept of pressing it out; if you can't get enough force with a C-clamp, you could lash up a small bottle jack to do it.

    If you read the thread, you would know he has a Gofundme account. Also if you read the thread, you would know that Rimas is an ignorant grifter. A job well done? It is to laugh.
  13. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    I was going to start posting recipes.
  14. I see it's catching on. You need a new one; that old one is off center, out of focus, and fading badly. I think its electrons are shot.
