      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.

You’ll learn to fit right in and I don’t want you to take my Cliffy from me. It took me 2 whole weeks of aholing and trolling LB and J_S to earn my place in the Pantheon of Claven

It’s a little-known fact.

Hey Tex,   I like your style.    Take a read of  Conrad Black in National Review.    Also do you own a Henry Mare's Leg 44 Mag ?    you should get one.   great holsters also available.   totally legal in Canada the home of  Lib'tards .   Be careful in what you post about Cdns  as they specialize in stalking  but won't  visit you.

No G, I'm afraid I don't have one of those.  But those Henry's are sweet!  You should see my arsenal and thousands of rounds of ammo though.  If I posted pix it would cause these libs heads to spin off...

I wish you would.   A good buddy of mine,  now deceased sadly,   used to get serial number 2 or 3 of each new S&W  released.   Number 1 goes to the Pres.  I am told.    Stay free in life and speech.    Don't take the trolls like Ish etc seriously.    If you are enjoying sailing don't hesitate to follow posts by Robert Perry on these pages.    Take a look at the 4 carbon cutters.

What’s interesting, to me anyway, is that it is usually minority groups that are victims of some sort of oppression. I can remember jokes about Jews, coloureds, Irish, cripples, pikies (gypsies), gingers, ‘poofters’, tramps (bums); the list goes on. These jokes were the then acceptable face of a whole bunch of ‘isms’, yet many a comedian made a career out of them.

Thankfully today we seem to have outgrown such crude humour, except when it comes to women. And that can be read two ways, which makes it a joke, so no doubt some on here, looking to be offended, will respond accordingly. 

The question is, what did I mean? Am I thankful women are still the butt of jokes, or thankful purile jokes targeting the vulnerable are on the decline and hopefully jokes targeting women will follow suite?

Oh shit, done it again! I just labelled women ‘vulnerable’ by association.

Nothing to do with 'being offended' necessarily  I can see inappropriate language about women and not be offended, but that does not stop me from pointing out when someone has crossed the line.

The 'Offence' card is a strawman.  No one is required to be offended for misogynistic posts to be called for what they are.

The war on humor.  Nothing is funny anymore.

You included the Irish and gingers in your list, which goes to show that even white males and females were fair game.  Everyone was subject to comedic observation, not just protected minorities.  Everyone had the capacity to laugh at themselves.  Now everyone is butthurt and comedy is dead.

So why would that be any more effective than the other social wars?  You know, drugs and terror?  They just got stronger!

Seems the only people complaining are those who can't now make tasteless sexist jokes the women had to pretend to laugh at, without being called on it.

So no one was offended. Come on rainy face man up. You are very easily offended. Why else would you have made 14k winey, bitchy shit posts?

Are you sure LB? Seems it is all feigned. Never met an argument he didn't wish to engage. All in the name of showing off. Even if it doesn't paint him in the best of light. What is important to random is you take notice.

If you are not a sock, you are new here.  So you do not understand that nothing I post is feigned, no need to do that when I am anonymous and can post what I want with in the rules.  

I have not been offended by any of the posts here, but I can and do call them for what they are.

Your reaction is typical of those here who find alternate views a brain strain, "they must be trolling!".   No.  e.g. the posts #327 and #333 above are straight up, that's how I see it.  I am only responding to this so that you and others here cannot make yourself feel better by brushing the comments aside as disingenuous.  Sorry about that, they are real.

Deal with it, lay back and think of England.

Not that I am aware of.  I thought it was used for married women "who considered sex to be a chore".  Or so men at the time thought anyway.  I guess the men weren't good at it.

I guess it was "if you're going to be raped, lie back and enjoy it". I assume that was coined by some alpha-male type.

Need to make it clear that my use of it was nothing to do with getting raped.  It was about doing wifely duty even if you don't enjoy it

Couple of points: 

--my wife finds Cruising Forum and its ilk far, far more offensive, with their pedantic 'admiral' references (f.ex.) than SA, by far. 

-- I haven't seen anything from the women who are here. So for men to comment on whether the women are offended is, well,  at best... speculation

Yes it is truely facinating to see people like you get so disoriented when they get outside their comfort bubble. They are so used to the circle jerk of opinions they usually inhabit that they go all abusive when their world views get warped.

Interesting little fantasy you have shared with us.  :lol:

LB your pal there is a classic hybrid, not only does he fancy himself as too cool and thus liberal, he also ticks all the boxes of too stupid to realize he is too stupid to understand. Danger there is he thinks he is very clever on top of way too cool. That heady combo of ignorance, lack of logic and common sense, with an over abundance of egomania makes for a curious cocktail. Lord save us if he ever wields any sort of power or command of others. 

 

But I fear all this is lost on our dear boy, too stupid rues the day for his mere existence.

I believe that started with a channel 7 weatherman in NYC back in the 70's, who seemed to take a few shots before the news started..  the main story was about a rape of young girl and he came back with that comment..  the anchorman jumped over the desk and was strangling him on camera..
