      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. The serious transgender bathroom issue discussion

    I have zero interest in engaging you and your goofy, ignorant views. I'm just here for the ridicule.

    The same way it follows the drug trade around - because of the illegality, not because of the product. Not a lot of organized crime in the liquor industry these days but they owned it 90 years ago.
  3. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    The brass was pouring out of that thing as fast as the water out of the barrel. Those guys had just about the best job in history.
  4. Motorcycle Threads

    You only need to tape the cut line - it doesn't require a whole roll of tape. Very fine toothed blade too. A second pair of hands to keep the off cut from flapping helps as well.
  5. Boat Yard Parking 101

    You get a lot more than broken windows in that situation - those canvas fire hoses leak - a lot. I bet the firefighters have big smiles when they do it to those sort of selfish assholes.
  6. Random PicThread

    Long Pork
  7. Ugly New Boats - is it just me?

    Exactly - I've said for years that most of the people who buy these floating condo's would be happier with a powerboat. The engine hours I've seen on them when they are on the used market would support that view as well. Most of the time when they are "sailing" around here they only have the furling jib up, even in light wind - I guess the main is too much work to unfurl & hoist.
  8. Snoop Trawler PNW

    I've seen a couple of ferro boats credited to him around here but that's all I know about him. Don't even know if he was a local.

    A lot of right wingers are unable to grasp the underlying concept behind calling it "The Worlds Oldest Profession". They really, truly believe they can make it go away.
  10. There's a lot you don't understand.

    As long as they don't play loud music or fuck up the street parking they can set up IMBY.
  12. I am really impressed with Shooter Jeff and Tom

    Maybe this should be moved to the "Shooting Fish In a Barrel" thread.
  13. He knew what he signed up for

    Can't that sort of thing be tracked down to the real poster? Scum.
  14. Split foam pipe insulation anarchy

    It would appear that architects are pretty clueless about the practicalities of their designs. In our house the gas & water services come in on the north side, go all the way across to the south side where the HW heater and furnace are and then go all the way back to the north side where all the bathrooms are - the kitchen is in the middle but otherwise..... 100' of piping instead of 10'. Just plain stupid. "Yeah, that'll fit there". Of course the architect of our house designed it for his brother so perhaps there were some relationship difficulties we aren't aware of - that would explain a few other idiocies about the place as well.
