      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. Oracle Team USA

    You're right, they are. And regardless if they're right or wrong, it can''t be doing their health any good
  2. Oracle Team USA

    Sure I'm a NZ fan, but my point is, why are my fellow countrymen bagging Oracle for water that long flowed under Golden Gate bridge? It won't change history or the facts ... whatever they actually are.
  3. Oracle Team USA

    Holly shit, I poke my nose in here after god knows how long and we're debating AC34?!! That was 5 years and two AC cycles ago .... wake up and smell AC36! We all have our opinions on San Fransisco and I can pretty much guarantee you are waisting your breath trying to persuade the other side differently. Use your energy constructively and go for a sail FFS.
  4. AC36 - The Venue

    Tank farm to go for America's Cup bases at Auckland waterfront A deal has been struck to free up land on Wynyard Point and pursue the possibility of a new option for the America's Cup bases. ... http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11994316
  5. what's wrong with this picture

    Those are pretty stylish PFD's they're all wearing. Must be the latest from Zhik.
  6. Team NZ

    Peter Burling found out he made New Zealand sailing history in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean via an email from his parents. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=11941988&ref=twitter
  7. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    Don't worry, found it. Volvo site is shit.
  8. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    Can someone point me towards the tracker please. Cannot for the life of me work out where it is !!
  9. The LV (not the AC) WS

    Russell and Larry aimed to make the AC a self-sustainable event and fell way short. This rumour suggests LE getting a World Series going and he (presumably) wouldn't even have Russell to implement it. Really? Personally, if it's on and it's free, I'd love to watch it regardless of who competes. But unless LE and LV are prepared to pour vast amounts of money into the sea I doubt this will get far.
  10. Team NZ

    Just spent a couple of hours talking to the ETNZ contingent up north. Had a play with GA's xbox controller and Pete's wheel.
  11. Team NZ

    Does anyone know what's happened to the ETNZ AC50? Things have gone real quiet on the subject and I'm assuming they've pretty much extracted themselves from BDA by now?
  12. AC36 Auckland NZ

    "The government has the opportunity to work with Team NZ over the coming weeks and months to influence the design and nature of the event" ??? That's a bit presumptuous. With an election looming in a little over two weeks, Simon Bridges et al. may be out of a job soon and have nothing more to do with it.
  13. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Took this pic while passing Waitangi on Saturday. Steady 15knt breeze and not a sail to be seen. I know it won't happen, but what a venue The Bay of Islands would be!
  14. Goodbye Russell ... ?

    Haha, somehow I don't think the Manly Sailing Club has the resources to put a challenge together .... unless the class rule turns out to be foiling BIC's in which case they'll be real contenders!
  15. Goodbye Russell ... ?

    I think he's done with the AC .... for now anyway. I'm not a fan but I do believe he's done an incredible amount for the sport and most recently for youth sailing. Manly Sailing Club will be stoked as he will be a huge boost for them.
