      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.

    Carefull not to ‘barn door’ the sail, you need a sail shape, ie a little roundness, not completely flat

    I'm sure I can get better reactions than I have already, I'm disappointed really In the meantime I'll continue to troll thru the Clipper site, and try to find some interesting posts to enlighten the cynical.

    BJ Porter, I have a couple of moorings that you are welcome to use during the week, and you wont be thrown off in the middle of the night, one in Towlers bay and one in the basin. We regularly tie up 3 * 50 ft yachts, so would hold your boat without an issue; and only really use them on the weekends. Will contact you on your blogsite Rgds
