      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.

It ain't broke??

It's either broke, or will be broke. Just a question of when.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

 

Obvious, I would have thought.

It's an intolerable challenge to the collective manhood.

You (and I for that matter) would be out of work. Shit breaking provides for a nice break from fairing bottoms.

First time I came back to check. I was preparing to write an apology for starting this... but I like the way it is going

It ain't broke...

 

 

There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.

 

There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things we now know we don't know.

 

But there are also unknown unknowns - there are things we do not know we don't know.

 

 

This sums up why so many of us still love & hate boats after all these years. It also explains why sailing never gets boring.
