      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.

  1. $192k for a 26ft boat. http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1829-wahine-lifestyle.html
  2. Big thanks to Ajbram, Monsoon, and all the other scientists trying to save the planet.
  3. +1 No one is going to buy this besides NYYC. No resale value (like most "race" boats) means it won't get a one design fleet anywhere besides NYYC. Should have bought 20 J/111s and started a series with no pros and new sails once a year. Sail contract to be bid out yearly.
  4. A trap or 2 adds a lot of RM.
  5. Here's some looting:
  6. One side has evidence based, peer reviewed science. 97% of climate scientists and every country except Nicaragua, Syria and Trump are on this side. One side likes to play dumb and talk about water vapor.
  7. Sorry you don't understand. Please don't procreate. Thanks.

  9. I don't understand why you haven't bothered to do any research whatsoever when you claim to be so interested in the topic. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_dioxide_in_Earth's_atmosphere
  10. Here's an explanation that doesn't require reading:
  11. Did you read the part directly under the ROLE OF WATER VAPOR heading? It pretty clearly explains what you are asking about: "Water vapor accounts for the largest percentage of the greenhouse effect, between 36% and 66% for clear sky conditions and between 66% and 85% when including clouds.[18] Water vapor concentrations fluctuate regionally, but human activity does not directly affect water vapor concentrations except at local scales, such as near irrigated fields. Indirectly, human activity that increases global temperatures will increase water vapor concentrations, a process known as water vapor feedback.[99] " From the introduction: "Without greenhouse gases, the average temperature of Earth's surface would be about −18 °C (0 °F),[2] rather than the present average of 15 °C (59 °F)." The natural amount of greenhouse gases are good. CO2 has already gone up 40% due to human activity. That is bad.
  12. Read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas
  13. I think you missed the part where there is way way more change in 70 years than in 20,000. Just so happens to lineup with atomospheric CO2 increasing like 30%. We know what caused that increase. Same with other green house gases. Changes in 70 million years are not the same as changes in 70 years.
  14. Responding to "questions" about water vapor is falling for anti-science bullshit.
  15. My bad. I also liked him and his boat.
