      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. What IS harrassment?

    Simply put, real manners (not prissy ossified manners) are considered to be something for losers. The brutal hate manners.
  2. Port Townsend Dash

    Have to wait until we’re both retired, and with any luck, living back on the wet side. There are lots of boats faster than Amati. The trick, I think, is not sailing on the ragged edge (which, while fun, tends to get expen$ive....). White sail reaching, no wipeouts, would leave less time (see above ) on the water. Max LWL or an easy planing hull, ~ a Pogo 30 or 50? Keep crew weight down.
  3. Blue Balls

    I’m surprised that your WaterRat contract allowed pics to be posted while you both still live: maybe he’s mellowed? ha! of course, they are wrapped.... clever!
  4. If I may quote Robert Perry: “my Helly Hansen is my dodger.” One of the J designers is quoted as saying (and I paraphrase) if you order a dodger with the (fill in the blank) J boat, you probably don’t like to sail, and you probably won’t go sailing. I’ll say no more.....
  5. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    Tumlare (also called Tumlaren) http://classicyachtinfo.com/yclass/tumlare-or-tumlaren/
  6. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    Beautiful helm. Cool factor too... Ultimate 20- we survived 50k, and cruised ours- singled handed her, she was sweet, even in a chop Rocket 22 - too many $$$? Wylie Wabbit Turboed Int 110 (the one with the cabin) Int 210 with a tent? Sakonnet 23 with a boom Tent?
  7. Next POTUS?

    It’s hard to know how much is an act, for the cameras, and what she is apart from the media. When I’ve seen her in committee, on media, she’s the same as on stage, which is a little wierd. Sharrod Brown would be interesting, if we’re all looking for a Democratic firebrand. Great sense of humor, and he even sounds thoughtful. Right age, flyover land.
  8. Next POTUS?

    The more I listen to him, the less I know about him. He has great presentation though- even Trump is afraid of him.... Romney looks better-
  9. Maybe anything is more exciting when it’s forbidden? The right = the New Victorians?
  10. Tax “Reform”

    Business Freedom!
  11. Next POTUS?

    See? +1 (this anarchy like/dislike box is a mess)
  12. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    You push your argument beyond reality.
  13. Next POTUS?

    The USA likes to over rotate from President to President- so we go to: -an introvert intellectual next time? -a fire breathing kill-all-the-satyrs woman? -a brilliant governor (male or female)? -a quiet, but brilliant, long term senator? -a liberal Episcopal bishop? Personally, I’m rooting for Patty Murray, a very practical, smart, quiet, hard working senator. Our own Merkel? -
  14. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    The program is luvin’, baby! Young, old, it’s all good!
  15. Will Roy Moore Bring Back Stoning?

    Wait- Mary Jane is legal in Alabahama?
