      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.

    To misquote, "There's only two things I hate; intolerance of other cultures and the Australians." Fuck off you racist.

    1/2 a knot increase when you put it up. 1/2 a knot increase when you take it down.
  3. Wing Tip Reverse Camber

    Reverse camber was why T2 capsized in the Solent.
  4. Easy Rules Question

    Fuck off mate, what's wrong with my answer? Will write it out with rules and definitions when I get on a laptop if that will make you happy? Currently it is phrased in colloquial language, similarly to the question.

    No. Their relationship remains the same. If leeward takes you up, and that forces windward up, it is only ok if leeward could have taken windward up in your absence. But as long as you keep clear of leeward you do not break a rule regardless of their relationship.
  6. Both owned by an Aussie Yank Cunt.
  7. WTF is GD?

    Have you seen Armageddon? He does win, but also loses. I would quite like Grant to do something similar and say goodbye.

    It turns out that the country a challenge comes from has some importance. Several of those guys had offers from other teams this time round. One of them was asked to name his price, and afterwards commented, "even I was surprised by the $number I said to @#&@!$."
  9. Artemis?

    No one who actually knew anything or was anywhere close to this cup had that opinion. A person may be clever, but people are stupid and the majority of people here are complete morons.

    What makes you think sailors aren't?

    Many Grand Tour riders who do well are 5% body fat or less. Lance used to ride at 4%. Jens said he used to start a tour at 4.5% and finish at 3.8%.

    Maybe there are reasons that you don't know about that mean that they couldn't do any sailing even if they launched before then. And maybe there are reasons that mean the others won't be doing much race boat sailing before then either. Who knows?

    Offically launching on Feb 6th.

    It's not that it doesn't work, it's that it is proven not to work as well other systens. Are you familiar with Mar Menor? Predicting waves on flat water is easy.

    Actually they didn't allow them initially. The PM and Prince Harry appealed to them, and they then gave permission. This time they didn't. So they knew it was against the rules and decided that the penalty was worth paying. That means that they do have to either pay the penalty, or fuck off and forget international football. Neither option makes any difference to who will win future international tournaments.
