New, computer profanity filter does not recognize some compound words if a banned word is contained within. Pls. bear with us while we make adjustments. There will probably be some other words similarly affected that are OK in compound use but not ok as stand alone words. Please drop me a PM if you find a thread/post so affected so that we may tweak the filter.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

So long, manholes. I'm Canadian, so for me, it's still a sea****, dammit.

What's with Sailnet editing posts when we are using proper terminology?? This is a little over the top?? Please.. sea****, sea****, sea****, sea****, sea****......


Is this new profanity filter what's SLOWING the site down soooooooo much????

****pit has also been banned. Saw that in another thread.
Cam is working on it as we speak.

My current favorite: sal****er. That's the salty water many of us sail in.

Smile Re: "Seacock" vs. "ballcock" or "ball valve?"

It's bad enough on a boat but trying to rename the roosters on the farm was pretty bad but to try to get them to quit crowing was darned near impossible.

Anyways, any valve with a quick turnoff is a "****" Seacock, Gascock, etc.

Ball is one type. vanes and Tapered plugs are others.

I wonder how long before we can't screw anything to the deck. Or tell which way the wind is blowing?
