      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. Well done you Kiwi bastards We'll get you next time, wherever that may be. Note to Ben, take the LR cheque book and employ the ETNZ designers now,
  2. Thanks guys. Annoyingly I may miss the end even following it this way. Sounds like BAR are stuffed though
  3. Which leg are they on? Come on guys, info please
  4. M or s?
  5. How much BAR lead left?
  6. So whats happening?
  7. And...? (aimed at Sail blue)
  8. Start in a few minutes? I hope there will be text commentary here, I can't see anything from here
  9. I think its a bit high for BAR's sweet spot IIRC But nevertheless, no excuses from me Hopefully no excuses when Ben screws Pitch-Pole in the pre-start and leaves him vainly trailing that there is tioo much wind or something
  10. We can hope!
  11. Oh yes The separate cases of deliberate rule breaking ,gaining an advantage, breaking the opponents boat etc is a DSQ And breaking the fundamental rule of fair siling - if they still have it
  12. Resistance to water damage?
  13. Many teams have had all members haveto buckle down to do work like that. On many occasions So it is not "NZ culture". It is good team culture and occurs in many countries
  14. Shame, I was looking forward to BAR winning the first 2, and then the 3rd being cancelled due to high winds after the more rabid Kiwis complained about being made to sail in 23kts the other days
  15. That is at least as vomit-making as Georgie's letters to Ben And incredibly naive of what happens in other teams form many countries
