      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.

Half a mast

Recommended Posts

While visiting at Bondi today about midday I saw what looked like a 40-45 foot yacht making its way north towards Sydney Harbour a mile or more offshore. It was carrying a jury-rigged orange storm jib and from that distance it looked like it had lost  its mast above the hounds. Any thoughts from here about who or what it might be and how it ended up in that condition?

By " lost  its mast above the hounds" I presume you mean above the spreaders?

I'm good mate, still stooging around the bay.  I see you from time to time when I'm getting a retiree latte at la mer.

Damn you retiree's getting in the way when I am waiting for my coffee!  Stick your head in the office next time you are around and say g'day.
