      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.

Thanks for the suggestion!

That would make sense, except that AFAIK Fauth has never sailed there (other than a bit of ice boating). Could be wrong but I believe all of his sailing has been in LIS.

Bella Mente's red-and-white mystery burgee features the initial "F". While that could be just a coincidence, I suspect it is a made-up 'personal' flag (with the initial symbolizing "Fauth"), rather than a YC burgee. :unsure:

An initial, a diamond, a stag's head: it's all rather a dog's breakfast. :wacko:

If you look in old Lloyd's Register of American Yachts you will see that there is a long tradition of private signals. Out of curiosity I've looked up people I know or their parents and found some of them. The neat thing is they are arranged by pattern for fairly rapid identification.
