      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.

    lets see. does a swearing, fighting, sometimes pissed idiot who has no real sailing nor boating knowledge fit the bill?

    You people love your Hobart F40 fleet don't you. Don't let them worry you too much, it is a cycle, in 5-10 years they will be just a memory and people will move back to divisional racing. The thing is though when that happens, then Division 1 will be the wankers, it is pretty hard to please some. Assume they are the quickest/best funded things on the Derwent currently, best thing you could do is get yourself on one. How many F40's you have now? Assume they are racing windward/leewards, not around the river courses? Storm Bay may be a bit far for them to travel each morning & night. What's that 10 or 11nm? Mate there are fuckwits everywhere these days, reality is that there will be a greater percentage in a pastime like sailing, get over it.
  5. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    7.2 - sounds like you need to recalibrate your gear. or you werent going upwind So what do the quick boats in Hobart do upwind, must be 7.2 plus plenty? I say bullshit.

    Fuck me that must be one of the ugliest boats ever built.

    Dunno about a succession of boats with that name, but he does seem to prefer song names as boat names? Being for the benefit of Mr Kite, from the Beatles?
