      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.

This is just dumb enough I felt like sharing.

 

Completely confused my non sailing friends.

Thats pretty damn funny. :P

 

and I bet somewhere out there, Pavlov's Dog is at the leeward rail, hurling his guts out :blink:

It actually had the Pavlov effect on me. Half way through, I started wondering when I'd hear the local near shore forecast!

yeah, me too

 

I can remember one cold foggy 4:00 am morning of my misspent youth when I walked up into the wheel house of the commercial salmon boat I was working on.

 

The NOAA Dude was droning on about square waves whilst the stink of the arcing stylus of the old paper graph Furuno filled the air.

 

And I thought to myself, Shit man, I'm getting seasick . . .

 

This is pretty ironic,

 

considering we were still tied up and hadn't left the dock yet :huh:

My only hope is that they actually broadcast that out over the airwaves a couple of times.

 

I can hear it now expecting the next weather forecast and getting that brilliant piece of music.

Priceless. I've got this stupid grin on my face after hearing that.

That's what happens when you ask Washington to Administrate the oceans and atmosphere.

Hilarious! We always called him 'Iron Mike'.

Sven. Because he sounds like a drunken Swede. Of course, if you listen to him for too long, you'd need a few drinks, too.

 

At the beginning, the way he used to mispronounce some of the local place names was hilarious: "Falmouth" became "Foul mouth", for example.

 

Northeast Region has largely retired that voice.
