      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.

(04-16) 22:15 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A 42-foot catamaran sailboat crashed into a buoy off the coast of Redwood City on Wednesday, killing one person and injuring two others, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The accident happened about 7 p.m. and the vessel was towed to shore, Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Mark Leahey said.

Three uninjured people were left on the boat, which was not taking on water, Leahy said. The two who were injured were boarded onto a U.S. Geological Survey boat that was nearby and were taken to shore, he said.

Redwood City police are investigating the crash.

No, he was hit by the mast coming down after they hit a lit mark, and other boats couldn't get to them because it was too shallow. :blink:
