      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. General Anarchy: DTS

    God No. I don't want to read about the time Brane dropped the bar of soap in the prison shower.......
  2. Just saw this on Yachtworld. http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1993/Hunter-Legend-40.5-3140936/Melbourne/FL/United-States Needs a new rig, too. $7,900.00 (trailer not included) “CURRENT PRICE” IS A GUIDE. ALL OFFERS RESPECTFULLY CONSIDERED. You know you want it.
  3. My newest project

    That looks like a Tektronix 4054 - similar unit but with a much bigger, nicer screen. I wrote my first ship CFD panel generation programs on one of those.
  4. Canada (Toronto) has won it twice.
  5. Yacht brokerage owner/director earnings?

    True. And most women is general will be turned off immediately and delete the bookmark. That's too bad because this forum is mostly knowledgable sailors and sailboat lovers, of which I know many woman in that group. The great marine content of the collection of members is what keeps CA from becoming an old mans club over a gas station. Even over at Sailnet the forum posters are mainly men, despite a far more active moderation effort.

    The only thing I like about a wheel is that you can sit further aft in the boat. So it is easier to be under the bimini - a big plus on hot light wind summer days on the Chesapeake.
  7. More Teachers Behaving Badly

    Notice that Yahoo classifies it under "entertainment".

    I was the same way. It's taken me most of the season to completely rid myself of the wrong reflexes.

    You can still get parts for an Atomic 4. Some old diesels? Not so much.....
  10. I wonder how many of us have now looked at our water heaters wondering what it would take to get it out. I know I have.
  11. used 4 seat convertibles under 8k?

    I'm 6 feet tall, and easily fit in my Miata. Miata Is Always The Answer
  12. Coolboats to admire

    Are you saying you look like Proa? Snags is a Ninja Wordsmith .....
  13. Show your boat sailing thread

    That's a nice looking boat. What is she?
