      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.

Who is snaggletooth

Recommended Posts

Sanggy got a good share of the awards last night.

Well that narrows it down to like a dozen of the 120 or so in attendence.

Nice do. BTBOTFA and I had fun. Got to catch up with some old friends and make new ones. Of course it is always nice to spend an evening with the snagster ;) .

What I find really bizarre is listening to folks like Jeff Willis and Don Rave having a converstaion about who Snaggy is. I have come to expect that from the likes of BTBOTFA, and to some degree Charlie Powers, but to hear stallworths like Willis and Rave having lenghty discussions on the subject surprised me. One thing that was very revealing was when Roy Sherman got up and spoke, suddenly Snaggletooth's spelling didn't seem so far fetched or out of whack!

I think you will find out that Snaggy's last might be Willis?

Not sure about that. If gobbler is correct, the Willises didn't take home any silver that I recall.

 

Dan Corcoran

That's just wrong.

Dave said he and only two other people on the planet know who Snaggy is but he wouldn't give him up even though i was sitting there with pen poised over blank check, ready to give him a deposit on a new boat as long as he gave us the name. Snaggy has some mystical power over his subjects.......

trying to find out who Snaggs is , is like trying to find out who Spiderman, Batman and Wonder Woman really are....Snaggy does us all a great service and we should just let it go at that.... :)

No. 6 and I were so close, Dacapo-it was like finding Bigfoot's fingerprints and a smoldering campfire...we could feel his presence, false clues all over the place, one of the perpetuals was the "Prezidents Trofee" or something like that...there were denials from suspects that were not complete denials, there were tales of Snaggy saving somebody's hungover ass thirty years ago, there was misdirection, there were smokescreens, we might have seen him at the back of the room, at the podium or we may have been at the same table.We failed in our quest but we feel like we have proof of his existence, almost like a snapshot of Bigfoot running through the redwoods....

It is your quest BTBOFTA. I am but a Sherpa along for the ride. While I find it a social phenomena, the scope of people who are seeking this holy grail, I am firmly in Dacapo's camp as to letting Snaggy be Snaggy.

Funny this, and the Breeze Please theory!

 

It was a fun night and the club seems to have finally figured out how to prepare a tender beef...

 

Out of curiosity: any feedback on the included wine & beer? good/bad/indifferent? seemed to fix the crowding at the bar problem from prior years.

Whom ever snaggs is they sure as hell don't spend any time working at their real job. Jeff W should be pissed ( just saying).

That would only be if he worked for Jeff or if his last name started with a W, which he doesn't and it doesn't.

oooo that is a theory worth testing. Though I sometimes think there is a secret anti-spell check at work there. It's so random.

Um, Morgans and Makers would have been on a cash basis... I meant the beer & wine being in the fee. Makes sense at the wallet, not sure if that sufficed, or if most went cash for cocktails...

point was that the bar was pretty open and accessible for guys who wanted something with a bit more bite than beer or wine-worked out fine, was a very entertaining evening-well done to all the folks at Lloyd Harbor

^ Yes. But this case may be different. The effect he has had on all of us is hard to articulate.

He has no enemies? He is never challenged?

 

The quality and fascination of the Snaggs character will be found somewhere in the solid, kindly heart of the human behind the character.

We might well find the author to be fat, bald, ugly, and a lousy sailor, too, but I seriously doubt we will find a mean person at the core.

 

His humor and outlook touches and inspires all of us, in an SA landscape that is often rolling cruelty. Remarkable stuff.

Too late.

Besides, I think BTBOTFA's head is about to explode...and we could all use a good laugh.

 

Sorry, but I told Snaggy I wouldn't give him up.

 

He's the nicest guy in the world - I truly mean that - stunning considering the other people on this board. A riddle wrapped in an enigma.
