      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.

Then of course there are those who just want to start their own business so they can do their own thing and make a decent living at it, as opposed to become a captain of industry. Not everyone wants to be King of the World.

 

Completely agree. As stated, I personally would never give my dad the shove regardless of whether he squandered business opportunities.

 

For a while I did due diligence and high risk assessment for a bank, and I was in a different company every week for almost two years. Typically the "high risk" segment of those I saw had a founder and CEO who was a product specialists, but he couldn't handle one or all of the pricing, financing, accounting and human resources aspects of the position. I've seen Tom's situation more than one would expect. I'm also not saying this was the case with Larry and Quantum...

Is anyone else struck by the fact that sales revenue is estimated to be only $13M? Sounds to me like a horrendous headache for not much money. I'd rather go sailing.

Widely announced that Mr. Leonard is now with North in Annapolis.

 

According to rumors, most of the Annapolis North guys (including the afroementioned Mr. Leonard) will be out on various J/30's for the NA's the last weekend of September. A little in-house duke-it-out?
