      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. Don't impede the regatta (rowers)

    Not sure why Photobucket killed the photo. I've shrunk it down to the required size and attached it as a file. My comment had enough details seeing as I was just using it as an example. You could have just asked questions if you wanted all the information instead of making a badly misinformed rant.
  2. Ridiculously Overpriced Boats

    Thanks for posting that. I tried to do the same, but my phone wasn’t in the mood.
  3. Ridiculously Overpriced Boats

    I’ll say you’re both right and wrong. Take a look at the photo of Terrorist in the photo of her sailing. There’s a track visible that isn’t shown in the photo at the dock. Not recessed though, but up top. I’m guessing that dock photo was part way through the restoration, with a temporary padeye. Edit: I’m dumb. Just realized the boat’s still white when it has a visible traveler. Maybe the new owner is big on Vang sheeting.
  4. Don't impede the regatta (rowers)

    That is a laughably incorrect statement. First off, we were miles away from anything resembling a shipping lane. He had 60+ miles of unrestricted space to the side of that race course. That one tug made up the entire amount of commercial traffic seen during the week long event. The “little nothing” race was a Lightning North Americans with 100+ boats. Because of that, we filed for a permit with the coast guard and they approved the location because it is quite literally the BEST place to run races and stay out of everyone’s way. This was a one-off, odd captain that felt like making some strange point.
  5. Don't impede the regatta (rowers)

    I’ve seen something similar when a tug captain chose to push a barge right through the finish line as the fleet was coming in to finish. We had a permit. The tug captain lost his license. Oh, and pics because it happened.
  6. Personally, I think it’s hilarious. I can just imagine the conversation... Dave: “So have you read the thread? Are you going to take care of this?” Detective: “Sir, we’ve completed our investigation, and we’re sorry, but we can’t bring back IOR either.”
  7. No Dave, I’m just going off your history as an unstable nutcase. (I’m guessing trust fund baby who never had to learn real life). Everyone here who wants to know who I am does. I’ve outed myself in every way, right down to where I live on these forums. I’m not the least bit concerned about people knowing who I am just because I called you out on the crazy shit in your head.
  8. why sailing in MKE rocks...

    I’ll give him credit for the extra speed. We didn’t quite get the same distance in Sheboygan.
  9. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    The scary thing about listening to that whole podcast was that it reminded me of me when I went through a bit of a mental breakdown. Everything I heard just screamed “unintentional pathological liar with no experience being a pathological liar.” I do not intend that to be an insult. I was that person during a severe bout of depression. It was weird and almost uncontrollable. The weird hesitations, the misdirections, the odd laughter, the mix and match of truth and nonsense .... it all just sort of adds up.
  10. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    She may very well rejoin this thread. The vast majority of posters have been shockingly polite in talking with her here. It’s far more interesting getting answers than just insulting her.
  11. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I stand corrected. That’s an interesting turn of events. He’s said in the past he doesn’t do any of the flicks.

    Actually, according to BJ, it’s only Scot that uses the nuclear option when banning people.
  13. Mitsubushi Vehicals - Thumbs Up or Down

    Your truck was from when they still cared about passenger vehicles. They’ve quit caring now. It was evident in every way with my car. Having said that, it was at least a reliable commuter car.
  14. Mitsubushi Vehicals - Thumbs Up or Down

    I got rid of my 2012 Lancer last year. The interior was cheap in every way. The seats were crap. The CVT was awful. The engine was pretty gutless. Mileage was mediocre. Stereo sucked. Bluetooth never worked right. It rattled everywhere. Otherwise it was fine.
