      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.

Very sad news, I am a huge Husker Du fan and whilst his solo output hasn't been as prolific as former band mate Bob Mould, he did write some beautiful songs. 

My first ever place with a girlfriend was a tiny studio apartment in Rushcutters Bay. The place was so small our lounge had to double as our bed but did have great big windows to let in the sun. The first thing I unpacked and set up was my stereo and the first song I played was Grant's classic 2541. It's been a tradition that every time I have moved, since that place in 1989, I have played that song. Right up to our more recent purchase on the Bellarine this last Xmas. 

RIP Grant.

That first song was beautiful, thanks.  I've been trying to listen to more new old music.  This one comes to mind basically every few days in one context or another.  Hooray for melodic punk rock...
