Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.

This may be of interest as it's maritime history. Not sailing but the R/V Petrel, owned by Paul Allen discovered the wreck of the USS Lexington on Saturday about 500 miles NE of Australia in 3000 meters of water. Petrel is a 256 foot former "IMR" (inspection, maintenance and repair) vessel which was purchased in 2016 and refit into a research ship with 6,000 meter AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) and ROV (remotely operated vehicle). The "Lady Lex" was one of the first US aircraft carriers and was sunk in the battle of the Coral Sea, an historic engagement, the first naval battle where the surface ships were never in visual range. Aircraft and torpedos were the cause of her sinking. This battle essentially turned the tide of the Japanese expansion into the Pacific and saw the beginning of US and Allied dominance in the Pacific.
