Anybody can remove a post they don't like by giving it a moderation score below -10.
All posts are meant to be as temporary as chalk drawings on a sidewalk or sand castles on the beach. There is no harm done by having any post removed for any reason.
Lets look at how this can be fun!
First of all, votes cost 1 loony each. Voting up or down raises money for nonprofits as loonies can only be created when somebody donates to a nonprofit we list. We encourage voting wars! They are a great way to test out your psyops and false flag propaganda skills as a double or triple agent and to sow the seeds of mutiny.
Something truly offensive!
As an example of something truly offensive, somebody says "The LA Dodgers are the greatest baseball team ever!" This post is clearly offensive and should be given a -11 so it disappears.
If the LA Dodgers scoundrel decides to post again, this time he could buy votes for himself and secure his post by giving it 50 up votes. If you and the good people in the room give it 61 downvotes, that post reaches as score of -11 and it disappears, as it should.
Besides playing moderation turf war games, a positive moderation score is also used to separate broadcast standards and legal broadcasting content from lawful free speech. Broadcast standards are anything you can say in a court room, at your business, school or church and also contain no copyright infringements, safety issues, tobacco, alcohol, profanity, legal conflicts and represent the high standards we seek.
If you know your post is truly offensive, such as containing nudity, at least have the courtesy to give it a score of -5 or below when you post it. A score that low gives people a heads up to avoid it and also changes its warning color from green to orange. If you choose to read a post with a -5 moderation score and you are offended, why did you choose a post with a score that low? Never mind Karen, just down vote it some more and get rid of it.
Your boss wins the ugliest dog contest!
Contests are where you can really have fun with the moderation score. Lets say you are having an ugliest dog contest. The winner is the highest green moderation score. Your boss submits a picture of their bulldog, you submit a picture of your boss. Who will win?
The moderation score works the same as a silent auction
You might have a really great prize such as a ride in your corvette stingray for your silent auction. At a time that you choose, you pick the winner by the most votes. Who knows, you might even rig the contest by down voting or upvoting the winner. Yes, we encourage rigging contests as each vote you give will raise more money for nonprofits. Jealous wives need to have their say about who is going to be picked to ride in the show car. The ugliest dog could win and ride in the show car if the wife has her say.
Voting on the record
BTW, you can see all the votes, who is voting and if they left comments for why they voted. No secret ballots here. The only way you can steal a vote is if it is not on the public record. All votes here are on the public record in the same way that politicians vote. Why do you think that politicians always vote on the record and never by secret ballot? In all the years the USA has had politicians voting thousands and thousands of times, not a single vote has ever been incorrect by even one vote! (when they vote amongst themselves these scoundrels know how corrupt politicians are) You can only steal votes if nobody knows who votes belong to and they are off the record. Voting like that is even too despicable for pirates and this is why when you buy votes you are a HERO for supporting nonprofits.
This is true community moderation as anyone can remove or vote on a post.
One serious note, nothing on this site should be sold in dollars!
Please ignore or downvote out all posts that want to sell you something for dollars and not loonies. These are 100% bogus posts! Please down vote them low enough so they disappear like pirates thrown overboard from a ship.
Green SAILOR posts
Before you read a post look for a green tag that says "SAILOR". This indicates it could be safe for work, school or even for broadcast TV. Green SAILOR posts are like riding the subway. You think it is safe but you do not know.
You only need to know this
Clicking on the top left button (house or dashboard) takes you to the front or back of this website.
Clicking on the top right icon takes you to your account where you will find "Loony" then "Loony history."
In the Loony menu, clicking on an ad takes you to a second page so you can purchase or barter for the item.
In the Loony menu "Show Coupons" lets you show purchased coupons to retailers so you can redeem a coupon.
A green SAILOR post with a positive moderation score should be safe to read. An orange LANDLUBBER post with a negative score means it probably contains offensive content and you should avoid reading it.
In the Loony menu the Bribe/Booty button lets you send loonies to another player or do a booty search on any player
The purpose of a coupon is to bring a person into a store to buy an item.
When you cut out coupons from a flyer and bring them into the store and hand them to the cashier they sometimes scan them but they always throw them out. Coupons are 100% worthless! They serve their purpose by bringing you into the store to buy something.
When you see something in the "Loony" store you can click to purchase a coupon or use the transfer widget to barter for it. Either way, you have created a public record and the coupon does not need to be scanned the retailer has access to it and your purchase. Once you purchase a coupon with loonies, on the "Loony" page you click on "Show Coupons". Scroll through your purchased coupons and show it on your phone to the cashier, server or mermaid to get the discount. You have saved them the trouble of scanning the coupon and throwing it out later when you are not around.
If you used the barter widget and transferred loonies, follow the directions that were part of the barter. The transaction shows up on your "Loony History" and not under "Show Coupons."
We strongly recommend using the barter widget. This transfers loonies to the server, mermaid or retailer directly. When you feed loonies to Mermaids, their booty gets bigger. If a Mermaid has a big enough booty she can make you loony if you give her cash. A nonprofit gives you 1 loony for every 25 cents you donate. A mermaid with a big booty might give you 2 or 3 loonies for every 25 cents you donate. She might even lure you to your doom and give you one loony for every dollar you donate. Whatever deal you make with a Mermaid is up to just how loony you want to get. A Mermaids mission is to lure sailors to their doom with their booty, beauty and charm, so be warned!
Cash Out - Loony Math
You use your credit card and donate $20 to get 80 loonies. You sell the 80 loonies to your buddy for $10. What happened? The nonprofit got a $20 donation from you and it only cost you $10. Your buddy thinks a lot of you and has 80 loonies worth $20 so you both can create skits or enter tournaments. Did you just gain in value? You now have 80 loonies worth $20, $10 cash and the nonprofit got a $20 donation.
You both did great with your skits and tournaments you end up with 400 loonies. It took a $100 in donations to create those loonies. You sell them all for $50. The person that bought them got them at half price and you got $50. Did you sell the loonies for a loss or gain $50?
Anytime you transfer loonies they randomly shrink by 15% to 25%. Sometimes just to fool you, you get more. By selling loonies for cash you give a lesson in loony math that markets the mystery of the Pirate Dive Bar and how a worthless fiat currency works.
If a Mermaid has feasted on a hundred loony coupons she might have a really big booty. If you give cash to that Mermaid to get loony with her, this new stream of cash makes her becomes a great public relations person for the Pirate Dive Bar. The Mermaid simply shoves the cash booty into her clothes where the rest of the booty is, and walks away with all the booty.
Retail Businesses - 15 minutes
Before you can create coupons or list a mermaids lair you must add a new venue.
On the "Play" page you will see the "Bootymaster" button. Click on that to go to the "Bootymaster" page. On this page you will see a check box for "Add a New Venue". Fill out that form and you have added a new venue.
When you create coupons you can now choose your venue to create the coupon.
On the "Loony" page choose "Donate items or Volunteer". Follow this menu to create a coupon.
Record Keeping is automatic. Whoever created the coupon has a complete record in their "Loony History" of everyone who purchased or bartered for the coupon. If a record is needed for a total amount that can be given by contacting the Atlanta Volunteers on the date you want the total.
The first obvious benefit is that employees (Mermaids) that barter coupons can redeem them loonies for prizes, donated items or cash. There is a stronger benefit for a few employees that have a person born with a disability in their family. A team building opportunity now exists for your business to produce an episode for "The Tropical Adventure Competition". Your business will build a stronger team as they all work together to help a fellow employee and their family have the adventure of a lifetime.

Skilled Pirates can use buried treasure as the bait for a catfishing tournament. Biggest Booty wins! (Just like that dating site you spend way too much time on) Swashbuckling, patriotic pirates can be lured to their doom by the siren song of mermaids during “The Karaoke Challenge Game”, “Flash Mob Karaoke”, “Pirate Initiation” and “She Shanty Karaoke”. Pirates are misjudged and found sometimes possibly innocent by the Bootymaster. False flag operations, psyops, and mutiny are skills are learned at pirate school so you can avoid being presumed innocent. The Bootymaster won’t keel haul you, but you might be motor boated.
