      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. Your watchword needs changing....".....by humble example. " ........ S, stop blowing kisses to yourself in your favourite mirror ...........
  2. Misogyny in sailing?

    as a newbie can i ask whether LB and Random are consenting sock puppets ? I only have so much money for popcorn.
  3. Six Pics of 1980's Detroit Boats/People

    We all know that won't happen. But how do we bring back the level of interest that existed in the '70's and '80's ? It was an attitude of design/build something better and concurrently build a better crew than what others put together. It was a pleasant atmosphere of success. People would spend the money to compete with something that had their design input. it was just a better racing world.........IMHO.
  4. Six Pics of 1980's Detroit Boats/People

    Midpack I hadn't thought of or looked at Larry's photos in years.........thx for bringing them back........I shall utilize a lot of time today going through them.......wonderful. It was so wonderful back then for this old retired dinosaur's memories that it offsets how modern racing leaves so many people out of the game.........how do we bring back this level of interest ?
  5. Misogyny in sailing?

    So you say.........post a pic........I think you are just jealous........of everything.........
  6. Misogyny in sailing?

    VWAP why did you post this picture of Basketcase ? He has issues. He hates me and now he will hate you.
  7. Misogyny in sailing?

    Now just stop crapping on Basketcase...........he tries very hard.........he is smart and he is nice and one day he will succeed........he is just struggling........
  8. Misogyny in sailing?

    Top of page......underdawg says..... " Don't insinuate Pedo" ........ where are the Moderators? This is Pedo pos/neg opinion..... Why do you Democrats spend all your time fixated on Pedo"s......its a pattern.......its egregious......its pervasive climate......heightened sensitivity......patriarchal........whose your daddy????
  9. Misogyny in sailing?

    Deep State versus Newbies.......lovely.......what's the demarcation point? 5,000 posts ?
  10. Misogyny in sailing?

    the only way there can be truly free speech and standards of opinion that are not simply trolling, is to end anonymity of posts......the agreement of membership should require publication of names/addresses/phone numbers in Profiles........anonymous opinions are seldom true opinions........
  11. Misogyny in sailing?

    Wasn't this all about Rule 69 issues? Doesn't that rather speak for itself ? Probably the only Rule that is correctly numbered. When did SA lose its sense of humour? Or did it ever have one. SA posting without humour should be banned. Can we get Al Franken to be a moderator ??
  12. I agree there is probably not a lot of gender bias in winning AC.......it is arguably a meritocracy at work......but if women are dictated in by misplaced pc mandate, then I believe they need overview protection by clearly stated anti Weinstein/Lauer Protocol provisions. Male or female or transgender or space alien posturing can be expressed in many ways......LGBTQXYZer/Zhe or whatever will be watching closely. We must be very careful to express any opinions whilst the autocratic left waits to pounce.
  13. male molestation of males has not made the media black hole as yet (except for a bit of Spacey whom you know intimately apparently) but it will ultimately hit the air waves with gay and heady abandon, as it were.........I ignored this aspect, but I bow to your superior knowledge and involvement.
  14. were you molested? how did you become so full of hate ?
  15. what is the difference between a Fast 40 and Melges 37 in concept. One design and essentially blown up dinghies. How do they do a 3 day long distance race without being charged by the UN with child abuse or sailor genocide? I would prefer the 8's or upgrade to 12's for the majestic aspect. Big dinghies have no go forward family value and television only likes close racing with minor speed differentials......tacking duels sell.......run away drag races on small boats does not sell. you don't want run away acceleration if you want to create a revenue based following. Both boats have to be in the camera frame. If you want to keep your family together and involved, there has to be something to talk about to make it worthwhile. . Something to aspire to acquiring for your family's enjoyment before you get the lawyer's letter and are reduced to a one bdrm apt and a row boat.
