      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.

8 bells for Fred Smales

Don't know if I missed another mention of it - couldn't find any via search, but.. I see that over the weekend our dear old friend Fred Smales passed over the bar.


I don't know of anyone that has given more back, or promoted the sport of sailing like Fred & Connie - they loved sailing so very much that they gave back more time and energy than you could imagine sponsoring youth programs and supporting junior racing here and across the country.


The past few years were very rough on Fred & Connie, but the struggles are done now, may Fred find the fair winds he so well deserves and my thoughts are all with Connie - losing a spouse is always difficult.


Thanks for all you did, Fred. Sail on.
