      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.

    Utter bollox. There was loads of space, and there is nothing about not being able to take it after the Z buoy. The penalty is where the incident took place. Sail away do you turns. If not you are a cheater and you accept the penalty.
  3. would you sack mark richards ?

    I only had to get to his explanation about why there are two wheels to conclude that he's a bit of a plonker
  4. justice

    Entertaining. It takes quite a bit to make Jimmy Spithill look like the good guy. Mason has managed it.

    i guess NBC pretended to give a shit.... then they didn't.

    Nice one- How to be a smartass and end up looking like a cunt PS, I assume you are 'merican with that attitude and the y'all, so you should probably keep a little hush about being slow in a boat at the Olympics

  10. Mitchell v Oracle ...

    Old case but yes, that is a new wrinkle. It is standard procedure to ask the judge to dismiss the case like this, and as you are no doubt aware, it is common for the judge to deny the request. to claim this as any sort of victory is simply stupid. More than a wrinkle. Matt's lawyer, a sole practitioner, kicked the living crap out of Squire Patton Boggs, one of the biggest firms in the world, a huge DC lobby shop. Fuck you ISAF. Even you aren't that naive. This really is nothing, yet. It is SOP for theI wondered where simonN the bullshitter was hanging out..... here he is here. Exposed as a fraud in the foil thread and now hiding away with his mate Doug in the idiots club. which part about Oracle cheating and Mitchell getting caught is bullshit?

    you are a clueless idiot. You do not know what the fuck you are talking about. Stop polluting the minds of others and read this.... http://www.houstonpress.com/arts/no-it-s-not-your-opinion-you-re-just-wrong-updated-7611752

    Someone above suggested that, since both boats protested, then maybe both were determined guilty in their own way but those penalties offset each other. someone above suggested you have no fucking idea what you are talking about. which would be fine, except when you peddle this bullshit as facts.

    incorrect umpire calls is quite different from putting weight in the kingpost of a one-design boat.
  14. ACWS Portsmouth 23rd 26th July

    yes, the public will be fascinated by those things....

    I think Ashby was suggesting that Jimmy cheated. Which obviously he did. Funny and gives a good sniff to the seriousness ETNZ will take in trying to bring down the ORacl
