      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.

  4. Artemis?

    Never mind. Thats only a cost of @$25 mill or so per Artemis race! GULP! IF ETNZ were to win the LV finals, then if OR were to lose in 7 races . How much PER RACE would LE lose? Any advance on US$40 mill...per race? Ouch! I feel sorry for the internationally revered Artemis crew who were let down with the campaigns strategic planning/design culminating in a fatality. Foiling has been around for years.Basic research would have uncovered the advantages. Low cost testing would have confirmed the higher speeds and foil lift. They had heaps of time to change tack as it were(pun intended) once they saw other campaigns were using foils. Americas Cup racing has always been about Design and development, with no prize for being second to finish. Is that why OR saw fit to do unauthorised alts to its AC45 fleet?...only to be found out? Woops RC your slip is showing!! knighthood intact? AC measurers will have their work closly watched next month eh on the AC72 finals? Sorry off the thread now but couldnt resist. Good luck to all the AC crews over the weekend. Will be watching AR/LR race 3 livestream TVNZ tomorrow.
