      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. 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.
  3. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    I was going to start posting recipes.
  4. 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.
  5. Sometime Life Bites You in the Ass

    Beats most of the alternatives.

    I can see why you're confused.
  7. The War on Women, Redux

    We could always come down and burn the White House again. It's weird living next to a country that seems to be turning into 1952 Arkansas.

    The streams will eventually cross.
  9. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    They aren't very much fun when they are waterlogged. Four of us managed to drag one out of the water and onto the dock, it took some serious effort.

    No, but there is a special sarcasm font.
  11. Sometime Life Bites You in the Ass

    Tough times, my thoughts are with you. My brain clock stopped at 34. Get a walker. My friend with arterial sclerosis bought a walker because he can't walk more than a block without stopping and resting. He's embarrassed to use it outside. Fer fucks sake... Why am I telling you this? You know it already.
  12. Probably back to Dingy Anarchy.
  13. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I'm picking San Francisco again, no matter where he says he's going. Probably by airplane.
