      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.

    UPDATE Hello all again, Did my 5.5 years in the middle east, 1.5 in Iraq, 2 in Afghanistan, and 2 in Qatar. Just retired in Dec 2010 and working on boat to get ready. My physical said all is well with the cancer bug. Still taking life one day at a time. I have a 20 year boat plan, 5 years in the Carib, 5 years in Australia, 5 years in the South Pacific, and 5 years doing the NW passage down the east coast to Florida. If all is well, start over...

    Hi all, First post. Was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had the radioactive seed implants done July 04. PSA was at 13 on day of surgery. Year later all is well. Never forget the day the Doctor layed his hand on my shoulder and told me. Mind boggling decisions, surgery/radiation/seed implants/do nothing and let nature take its course. Overseas working now(Iraq), building up the cruising kitty, plan on circumnavigation within 4 years or a year after I retire. Bought my boat 5 years ago, and will spend the year before heading out to outfit it. Will go out of Florida to Carib to Africa that direction if all goes according to plans. Take it one day at a time and make the most of it. Live Life to its Fullest. Alan @ Iraq
