      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.

    it is a fantasy question but wondering about the change of guard in designers ... farr and R&P barely mentioned but agree cookson 50 has had many handicap wins i assume today you would need to choose the designer that has the best results with foils ...

    anarchy is the right term for this forum .. seems a few people have been in the sun too much and drunk the sea water .. time for some chill pills
  13. Sydney to Hobart 2016

    boats like chutzpah are the real heroes of the race .. year after year turning up spending the money , international and big boats will get the press but the stalwarts are what make the race ... also same for the melbourne to hobart race
  14. Sydney to Hobart 2016

    cant see why wild oats decision to pull out is an issue, clearly she was not in a safe state to continue and we have see what happened to rambler ... continuing would have endangered the crew, voided any insurance and probably made the skipper criminally liable if something had happened ..
  15. Sydney to Hobart 2016

    was commanche really 25 m plus to build ?
