      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.

  2. And finally, here is the third (and last, you will be relieved to learn) candidate from my French trip. In my view, the worst (or should that be best) of the lot. I admire the self deprecation of the name, Vanille & Framboise (Vanilla and Strawberry) and the way that the curtains match the colour scheme so well. I admire the restraint of the citizens of St Malo for not wreaking their revenge on this blot on their beautiful cityscape. I admire the rig made of scaffold poles. I could go on...
  3. I thought at the time that the back end looked like a mobo whilst the front end is a yacht. Maybe its like the Disco Volante in James Bond, and can separate into two separate boats..? Maybe the curved bits cover the join..? OK, maybe not.
  4. OK guys, time for the second submission from my recent French trip... I have to say that I struggle to find anything to admire about this one. And what are those curved bits on the side for..? Maybe he liked the idea of IMOCA60 style foils but got confused..?
  5. You're welcome. I admire the sheer dogged tenacity that it must have taken the designer/builder/owner to get that into the water, presumably in the face of the whole world telling him he was mad. I also admire the bowsprit.
  6. Just back from a cruise around Northern Brittany, and came across a few examples that I feel warrant consideration by the Society. Here is the first:
