      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.

Kinda makes you wonder how a fancy boat like that ended up in the hands of the U.S. Marshals. I'm assuming asset seizure related to criminal activity?

 

Likely not bankruptcy related since I think those are run by independent 3rd parties.

The tax man taketh away?

 

On second thought, after some google-ry:

Well, amiralty law is (like all other kinds of law) completely beyond my comprehension.

To answer my own question, I skimmed the complaint and docket on pacer. Seems like somebody didn't pay their yard bill and a default judgement was entered. Could be more to the story but I didn't feel like running up my firms pacer bill. (Note: to protect myself from the overly litigious, I didn't read all the documents, just skimmed the complaint. So everything here is pure conjecture)
