      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. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Work got me out of the race early when I sailed way too far south and out of the wind. I lost 1000 spots a day for ten days bottoming out at 12,000 However after the Horn I went East and was able to put my long time evil nemesis “Hike Bitches” in his proper place.... behind me .. our friendly “war for the 40’s continues”

    Ladies and Germs, can we all take the time out of our busy day for a “golf clap” to celebrate GrandbendOnt on top of the podium! Yes some cynics may think I went out like Elton John and a Candle in the Wind ........ My work life balance indicator swung over to work and the needle broke off with unfortunate results

    Ouch.... almost DFL ......... CaptainSENer must be a heck of a guy, we’ve never spoke, but misery loves company. That said, since we are still in the Southern Hemisphere.... maybe you read the leader boards from the bottom up? Toilets flush backwards so it’s worth a try
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    The Lee of Lake Huron has been getting plastered with Lake effect, all roads are closed. That said I have been sitting here in Nassau for most of the last 14 days with trips to Columbia, Cabo, NYC, Florida ect. Its really not scoring me any points with the wife and kids Nassau weather is cold and windy this trip, worst weather I have seen, and I usually spend a month a year here

  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Woke up this morning happy to head East with the real fleet.......... then I did a “Momcheck” and the bugger is heading West! Now who can I trust? A humble but proven performer from the island of Texas, or 100 of the worlds best ocean racers?
