      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.

Foolish

Being crazy is the best way to get in the paper

This is the second time I've made the local paper for going out on days when my wife thinks I'm crazy - and no one else is on the water.

Beautiful evening with the temperature at 4C (about 40F) and winds 25-27. (Note the person wearing the touque) I set a new personal night time record with sustained speeds above 13 knots with the chute up.

 

Winter in Victoria is wonderful.

Winter here is totally wonderful. We enjoyed a nice meal with Born2Sail and VALIS while you were out freezing your knackers off.

Keep going out this time year in those conditions, and at some point you will make the papers, the obituary section

Great day in Vancouver as well. Clear, windy, beautiful. Who could ask for more. Middle NA is just getting started for winter and boats have been hauled until Apr/May. Here we are already thinking towards for spring. Spring means Jan 1st.

 

Here ya go:
