      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.

Short note for the J Class fans: The NYT will publish a short letter from me in the Oct 22 Book Review as an addendum to a review of a book on Bunny Mellon, daughter of Gerard Lambert. They referred to Lambert as a "Listerine heir" and I noted that he was much more than that. If you're not familiar with this amazing guy, I've attached a letter I wrote at the invitation of Halsey Herreshoff, suggesting Lambert be inducted in the America's Cup HOF, which he was in 2010. I doubt that Lambert would have been a big LE fan :-)

Cheers,

Earl
