      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.

Preserving JFK's boat Victura

Recommended Posts

ummm no. yeah nice boat and all.. and yeah.. may have some historical value for some.. but I'd think the Kennedy family has enough sheckles to keep her up.

 

this sets a precedent that will ultimately lead to a gofundme for 45s golf clubs or something..

What a stupid waste of donated money...a wooden boat that sits outside unprotected from the elements and will never again be used in the manner it was intended (sailing).

WTF are they gonna do to that lawn ornament for $40 large?? !

 

So the library / museum sits on 10 acres of Boston waterfront property with a IM Pei structure on it and they can't muster up the coin to put a couple coats of varnish on that thing??

 

something doesn't add up...

JFK Library 2014 total revenue $8.7 mil, expenses $7.4 mil, net income $1.3 mil. I think the library can handle this on their own.

 

Besides, how have they been funding it for the past 40 years? Wouldn't yacht maintenance be a recurring annual expense line item? Why GoFundMe now and not ever before?

Make more sense to campaign for a change in policy so they don't display the boat in such a damn stupid manner...

This.

 

You would hope that they've pulled the garboards out, at least.
