      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. I'm a little disappointed that fast foiling cats are gone..
  2. Team NZ

    How you guys all coping with the lack of racing? Any news on when the protocol will come out?
  3. Team NZ

    Costro/Paddy- I feel exactly the same way. The AC was Everest and the Lions tour was Kilimanjaro in comparison. I was at the Lord's test match yesterday and it was good to see how much the Lions win meant to people in the UK.
  4. Team NZ

    Jimmy is history; TRG flushed him down and out....
  5. Oracle Team USA

    Well, Jay, you're a better man than I. Oracle can lick my balls.
  6. Team NZ

    Mate, deadly keen to know what happened in SF. Now rhat we have won, it has no significance other than to assuage my sense of loss 4 years ago. Please do elaborate. PM me (is there that function on here?) if you don't wanna write it in public. I still feel like my mind requires an explanation for what happened because it was just so improbable.
  7. Live Racing Thread

    Certainly don't care if Oracle want to dome back or not.

    There is no trust in Russel within ETNZ. Bruno Trouble will come back to organise it. And TNZ DGAF if Russel has nothing to do sitting in his mansion.
  9. Live Racing Thread

    I know. That still is a microcosm of the entire campaign and our affair with the cup.
  10. Live Racing Thread

    Grant kept TNZ afloat. He won. He can say what the fuck he wants. To the victor belongs the spoils. and if you want to talk about shite behaviour? Just go look at Oracle-NSW over the last 7 years.
  11. Live Racing Thread

    Yes! That AC34 comment was the most interesting thing he said the whole presser. Can someone please shed some light on what actually went down???
  12. TRG debate

    Barny, is that really TRG? I had a feeling- you both had a good turn of phrase. Welcome back!
  13. Shed a tear for GGYC

    Yeah. Nah..
  14. Team NZ

    Mate I think knighthood for Dalts, Ashby and Burling. Matteo has one already, you're right, but it coud be elevated- outside of TNZ, his philanthropic deeds have touched other facets of New Zealand life. I've been thinking of Sir Peter this afternoon. Dean Barker also. The greatest sporting cmeback by the greatest sailing team in history. I suspect a few of us will continue our dicussions in person for the next one (if I ever make it back to Auckland that is)!
