      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. I got divorced today.

    DaveK - You could always get yourself one of those artificial girlfriends, outfitted with the latest artificial intelligence. Of course you have to make sure you don't accidentally bump the AC/DC switch on her neck - you could end up with a lesbian robot then.
  2. Barn Find Cal 40

    I talked with him at the Annapolis boat show. He said they spent $250K, and they still need to do some work on the interior.
  3. Fuck you im sick anarchy

    My wife gets flu shots and I don't. Guess who gets the flu more often. She still tries to get me to get a shot despite my better record.
  4. I was at the SNAME section meeting when the Coast Guard gave their report on the Edmund Fitzgerald sinking. The ship operators disagreed with the CG findings and were concerned that expensive new regulations were going to result. The audience was actively booing the Coast Guard presenters - I've never seen anything like that at a technical conference.
  5. NFL 2017

    Too bad they don't have teams play on Thursdays after a bye week.
  6. Junk on the trunk

    Jennifer Appel's first boat.
  7. Plus the cost of a big chainsaw.
  8. ......another ferro-cement boat thread

    Scrapped has two "p"s.
  9. Community Reputation Points

    You don't have to - the Australian wildlife takes care of that for you.
  10. SA Groupies?

    At least it explains your near 40K posts.......
  11. Daylight Savings v. Standard Time

    George W Bush became president in 2001.
  12. College Football 2017

  13. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Blue Jacket is a performance cruiser when compared with other boats built by its parent company, Island Packet. It's pretty much a 40 foot Tartan built by IP.
  14. Since almost anything, how about Anime?

    The two women adrift with two dogs made me think of Excel Saga - where the main character's "pet" dog was named Menchi (minced meat) because it was her emergency food supply.
  15. Show your boat sailing thread

    I've seen your boat a number of times and she looks very nice. Unfortunately I don't carry a camera and the phone has to stay on a charger below or I'd try to get a picture of you.
