This weather delay May last a bit. Bad storms look to be moving in and sticking around. Forecast not looking good tomorrow either. Been predicting a Monday finish all week and sticking to that prediction.
If you agree to play with people listening to music you are 100% agreeing to listening to music while you play, which is against the rules. I agree you don't have control over what they do, but you have control over what you do which includes playing with them while they listen to music.
I agree that there is probably a bit of distinction that could occur here, but not to the extent that Dave is indicating. If you are playing and overhear music coming from another group, house, or other source I don't think that would be grounds for invalidating your round, However, if you agree to play with people in your group who are listening to music then you have invalidated your round. The difference is you are either verbally or non verbally accepting or agreeing to have music playing during play.
the music isn't crap it's just not suited to all.
I personally dont understand the loudness "I impose to all" thing. Like all those arsholes that gear up cars to wake up 80 thousand sleeping people at night.
thank god we dont have this. beaches are becoming a problem though. I've seen weapons out on rap music controversies like this although normally nobody has a gun in France (RSS collapse ended in black market trade unfortunatly), we only sponsor terrorists with social help (much higher revenu offered for nothing done ever than in home country working 24/7).
