      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. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Oh shit. I was arguing with Meli. Derp.
  2. BITCOIN,,, anyone playing that game?

    Digital currency is profitable for only a couple groups. The exchange owners, who can walk away with your money whenever they like. The early adopters who can sell after the initial 5000% jump... and the scammers that walk away when early adopters put their money in. https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/exit-scam-confido-startup-vanishes-after-raising-375k-in-ico/

    People just do not understand technology. I DO robots...... GPS and Gyro stabilization units are now the size of a pea. Sending real time video back to a cloud for computation of things like facial recognition is already here - the processors on the drones don't have the CPU for it. The biggest problem is the processor minaturization - it isn't quite there yet. But..... it will be in 2 years.
  4. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Yeah... kinda coming to the conclusion the Shortforbob has some pretty thick rosy glasses on. We've seen time and again that it doesn't work. Definition of insanity and all that.
  5. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Seen North Korea lately? Cuba?
  6. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Check your history man. We've a ton of it, from Japan to Poland to Iraq to Haiti to Burma. We've persuaded the EU to hit everything from Belarus to Congo. But fucking over a country just pisses off the people and makes them stand up against you. We've learned that lesson over and over again. We need to fix our own country.
  7. mass beatings, rape and murder

    The same reason we couldn't "fix" Iraq and Afghanistan. True change needs to be internal, and the peoples of these countries don't see the need or have the want to actually change. We need to give up on nationbuilding. It's pretty simple.
  8. mass beatings, rape and murder

    No doubt we waste a lot of time on things like oil and ignore the human rights aspects, but until the governments of Myanmar and India want to change, their people aren't going to change. We can't fix that.
  9. mass beatings, rape and murder

    You want the real answer? We can hold a government semi-accountable for their actions and they can correct them. We CANNOT hold an entire country accountable for their culture - and make absolutely no mistake regarding the Indian sub-continents regard toward women and those of lesser caste. To put that another way, you can tell a billion people to stop acting how they were raised but it isn't going to happen. And if you've had any extended interactions with their people you'll find it goes a lot deeper than most Americans believe. Many of those Indians hold the caste system and mistreat of women as their core internal values, the way we teach please and thank-you over here.
  10. Yep. Kinda the final straw for me. I'll be voting Democrat. Trump's group has repealed or removed an insane number of protective laws and regulations that were put in place to keep the consumer safe. Ajit P deserves ANYTHING he gets - as they would say where I work "up to and including termination". He's a despicable human being.
  11. Spectacular Accumulation of Lies

    I agree about focusing on only one side. Conyers (a huge D in my state whose wife was already in major trouble) has now been accused of sexual misconduct as well. I'm sure a lot of people in this country were amazed to find out that misconduct in the national government is legally supposed to be kept secret. We wouldn't want to actually know about all their illicit pussy grabbing and cigar shoving.
  12. counter.social - Bot free Social Media

    So it's a social network without people?
  13. The Next Boat-----2020

    Hopefully the vertical portion of the foil is one design and the bottom fin portion is the part teams get to play with in the interest of keeping down costs.
  14. S2 7.9

    Recore the deck around both side stays, recore the deck under the mast step. Where the hell is the back stay on that boat? Remove the furling, get new sails with hanks, get a new outboard, basically blow $15k.
  15. The Next Boat-----2020

    To every last person whining about the foils - in practice these boats will still be narrower than a cat. If the sails can be raised and lowered that's huge when you get rid of the cranes. I definitely want to see the introduction of a one design power plant or battery storage of some sort that all the teams are limited to. Having people charging accumulators all the way around the course is simply stupid.
