      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. Totally agree! I've taken a bit of a break from the VOR threads since the last leg finished because most of the content just gives me a raging fricken headache to read. Can't wait till the next leg starts so the conversation (hopefully) turns back to mostly sailing. In good measure a little bit of trolling and banter is entertaining but at a certain point it gets old. Also really glad scrotum-gate is over. Was getting really tired of reading so much negative shit about such a great race which actually had absolutely nothing to do with racing boats. Sucks though that from now on the "raw" coverage will be more like "medium rare" coverage. Love em or hate em you gotta admit Witty is one of the more entertaining people in the race. Too bad from now on they're going to put everything he says on a time delay and assign one person to be his personal censor. I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing someone else's voice dubbed over his video, like watching the old godzilla movies where the words never matched the lips. Maybe it's time to start a new thread, "What Witty said and what he really said"

    My bad, I should have been more specific. Under "News", then pick "team" there's nothing. All the other teams have content under that tab. http://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/articles.html

    I suppose one could justify silence from management initially as not wanting to distract from the race but it's definitely going to look odd if there's nothing over the next week now that there's no active racing.
  4. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I'm seeing the same thing. I hadn't checked there before, was there ever anything there or did they remove it? Seems strange there's hardly any content from Witty post race, he seems like the kind of guy who would be entertaining to interview. Did he launch too many F-bombs during the interview for the family friendly audience VOR is going for? Witty refused to be interviewed? Computer glitch at the VOR? Conspiracy? In other news, can someone please point me to the "No VOR racing to obsess over" support group? I foresee a very difficult and painful week ahead. Already getting the sweats, shakes & tremors. Sweet baby jebesus I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to step away from the computer and do something productive with my life. That's just a world I don't want to live in.
  5. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Another good "week in review" video from Akzo. Only seems to be up on facebook for now. Eating cold food after arriving at the dock: "A little cold, think they were expecting us earlier."
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Was there a video interview with Witty and the Skally's? Think I saw every other boat interviewed but couldn't find one for Skally. VOR has a video "Full Replay Skally and TTOP Cape Town" but I didn't see an interview with Witty. Am I missing it? fwiw, I thought Dee's interview was quite impressive, she seems like a great leader for her crew. As we get more and more glimpses at each team it's becoming harder to pick a favorite. A lot of great personalities in this race.
  7. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I foresee some downtime in our future once this leg finishes. Wondering if you could supply some entertainment for us by hiding a few small items in your colon just before the colonoscopy? Get a video of your conversation with the good doctor afterward and post it for us? Maybe some small shackles, split rings, and a turnbuckle or two?
  8. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    If Akzo were playing music they'd be playing The Beatles song "Yesterday" over and over. I think they could identify with the lyrics this race. 'Sodomy, I'm not half the man I used to be. Now I need a place to hide away' Don't worry, I think I'm now officially out of butt jokes. I think.
  9. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Hopefully for Akzo it's just a fling and not a long term relationship.
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    As I was searching the internet for dick, fart and rectum jokes I mistakenly came across this race. Looks cool, wonder what race it is? I searched the term "taking it up the butt" and a picture of Akzo came up.
  11. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Rectum? Damn near killed em! Such a good sailing thread until it decompensated Good thing this leg is almost over! I fear we'll need a dismasting, collision or MOB to get us back.
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Just had the finger test too. Strange thing is when the doctor gave me the R-exam both of his hands were on my shoulders. Can't figure out how he did that. Not the smartest doc either. He kept asking me who my daddy was. I kept telling him but he just kept asking over and over again. Wait, what were we talking about again?
  13. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I don't know, two of the most accomplished sailors in the world and in one the finest vessels to ever set sail had a broken spreader and drifted from Hawaii for 5 months. If they couldn't fix it no one can.
  14. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Skally gettin some action in the back section, Vestas & Brunel finally finding a little up-tic in speed? Donger still looking strong but gettin some heat from Vestas. Mappy needs to look behind them to port and do something before there isn't anything behind them to see. Just a couple days ago who would have thought someone other than Plastics or Skally would be in the race to not be DFL? Umm, Akzo, wtf? Wonder if Akzo has a broken spreader, I hear you can drift around for like 5 months if those things break.
  15. Which three Asymmetrics?

    If it's any consolation we freeze our butts off every day, and especially in the summer. You know how we can tell who's a tourist? They're the one's who show up in shorts and t-shirts thinking all of California is like SoCal but within the first hour they buy a "I Love San Francisco" coat from a gift shop and spend the next few days wearing a coat with shorts.
