      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.

    The only thing that smells here, is your accusations of bribery.

    JFC this is pure gold
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Yes, that what I like about Scally being in the lead. Then he is completely silent, biting hard into his pillow. (If they let him have one in the institution)
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I'm guessing that the one profile we do not speak of, is biting his pillow in agony with the last scheds

    Ahh don't be too harsh on yourself. OK it can be improved, but you get points for trying

    2C. Have you ever wrapped a spi around a channel marker while passing it? Yes What have I won?
  8. Ozone is missing from the atmosphere

    You didn't read it all did you? "In the south, Antarctic sea ice extent was the second lowest on record for the month of January."

    Hmm tried to find something about this, but can't... Do you have a source? I need some cheering up :-) https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/climatechange/record-low-global-sea-ice-extent-for-january/70004086

    You can ask Chris Nicholson if I he would've considered it an advantage to get such an email the last time around.... It was never about wether it should be sent or not, but if it should be seen as an advantage and therefore compensated. Anyway with the non-haul no-rig-haul circus in Melbourne etc. I think it is safe to say that there really are no rules left in VOR. It is all flapping around in the wind, and a lot of people are loosing interest. I suspect this is the last edition of the race, so enjoy...

    I don't know if he/she meant that litterally. But already hours after the incident we had numerous pictures from the site. Now it seems to be a black hole, from which even light cant escape.

    I agree, it is incredible that this cannot be verified, and yet Mr. and Mrs. Speculatious seems to have all sorts of knowledge of the number of boats involved that night, wether they had nets out, lights on and whatnot.

    After watching this, I can understand it took a while to smuggle that footage out of the Peoples Republic
