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.

Yachting was all, well, yachts. Last One-of-a-Kind regatta was 1985. SAIL was pretty pictures, mostly keel boats. But One Design Yachtsman, and subsequent names, was for us dinghy racers. In 1967 I was on the reception desk in a Brooklyn Heights building with a view of lower Manhattan. Across the street and over a bit was the Margaret Hotel, a known, uh, place to 'get comfort.' An embarrassed fellow came up to the desk saying he had found all his cash missing after his 'activity.' He needed $3 for subway and phone call when he got to the end of the line. Showed me his credentials. I recognized him as one of the principals at One Design and Offshore Yachtsman. I didn't embarrass him by mentioning that. Dave Ellis
