      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.

  2. Larry's AC50 Circus

    He couldn’t hold Dame Ellen MacArthur’s sports bra Of course neither could any of us

    This irrevelant thread was dead for 4 whole days and then it’s back but has sunken to name calling and suggestions of a self imposed sexual nature between three or four forum members with obviously a LOT of free time on their hands . Nothing new to report , nothing’s changed , time marches on for most everyone else .

    And when the media is held to only a discussion between three people on one obscure blog what has resulted in FIVE years ? larry still has his trophy . The legitimate media you refer too has never bothered themselves with this trivial and irrevelant pursuit. The literally 100’s of individuals that were actually involved with the sport haven’t brought forth one iota of actual information . The originator of the entire Herbie concept quickly admitted that things were taken out of context and would never have worked was ignored by those searching for something , ANYTHING , to explain or at least make less painful being on the losing end of what has been come to be knows as “ The greatest comeback in the history of sport “. Make all the claims you want to the contrary but the mass social media will remember that above all else . A couple of guys masturbating to shaky 15 second go pro clips does not a conspiracy make . In the meantime have fun playing with yourselves .becuas hardly anyone else is listening .

    If it was that “clear” more than two or three guys on a blog would have noticed it and after five years said at least something of substance . People that are actually paid to do this for a living with actual skin in the game haven’t and no one els of consequence have either . Beat the poor dead horse all you want , it’s getting no further than this thread to nowhere and that drives you guys crazy .

    Don’t let 5lbs of lead stuffed in a king post by some rogue Kiwi keep this conversation going. The more you respond the longer the last reamaining public discussion of a five year old rumor in a obscure , soon to be forgotten , thread will continue. Let it die and the last three true believers will only have themselves to talk to . This is the last stand for Herbie and the real Herbie , you know the guy that came up with the original idea , left the building years ago

    That would be good news all the way around . Didn’t seem fair to such a well established firm .

    Well as far as the majority of AC sailing enthusiasts go , few though they may be , time zone wise Italy will be more convenient . As a side note Southern Spars would be overjoyed in not having to up root their headquarters facility which I believe one of the plans called for . Hell of a way to treat one of your high profile marine industries by screwing them over with a sailboat race of all things.

    So it’s going on six days and not a word on any progress . Wasn’t there some sort of a time crunch with regards to at least getting a plan decided not to mention the actual construction ?

    I was saying that the person you were trying to explain sheet and winch operation to has never spun a handle in his life and perhaps never even been on a boat. Everything can't be learned from Youtube

    Hes not a sailor he wont understand what you are talking about .

    There have been a few posts recently with regards to Aus deciding not to play . If they need four by the time the cup actually starts that will be a huge accomplishment. This one was from Skuttlebutt. http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2018/03/14/australia-unlikely-36th-americas-cup/

    This is starting to look like what happens when you walk into a club with so many hot chicks and you can’t make up your mind ?Pretty soon it’s last call , the lights are on and it’s just you and your buddies . In this case it’s going to be last call and you are a packing your bags for Italy

    That is your reply, that is the best you have ? Not one reason as to why no one else is even remotely interested in the fantasy other than two or three tin hats on a obscure thread on a free forum ? Professional journalists who are paid to do this for a living couldn't lay their hands on one hard fact and bring it to the light of day and most likely make them heroes to a large number of people but you and the other 2 succeeded ? You need to get the other two " WE " together and figure out how in the world you three are the only ones that : A/ Could get to the bottom of this when no one else could . B/ And more importantly you few need to find someone , anyone who gives a shit because after FIVE years no one else has .
