      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. Manhasset Fall Series

    Yes they did a fine job as they always do. See you there next year.
  2. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    Look at the J44 sail program. It works.
  3. Melges 40 'worlds'

    Diversity?... Who do you think makes the sandwiches?
  4. Manhasset Fall Series

    Just noticed the original poster is Jeff Hammer. Eclipse will be there. I just don't understand why this regatta is so poorly attended compared to what it used to be. I think they do everything right.
  5. Dreadlocks needs a new home

    I really miss walking up to the club and seeing Jeff and crew sitting at one of the tables at Manhasset Fall Series. I hope Dreadlocks finds a good home and shows up on the race course again.
  6. F1 2017

    Tires: Instead of "soft, super soft, and ultra soft"... how about "hard, medium and soft"?
  7. 2015 ALIR

    Race starts tomorrow
  8. J/105 Jib Sheets

    I was just about to mention Bruce & Nicole. They use the primaries and cross-sheet. The second place boat uses the cabin-tops through the turning blocks and does not cross-sheet. I'm pretty sure the second place boat was faster upwind, but got second because B&N just out-sailed them.
  9. Batman DTS

    That show brought a lot of joy
  10. Stratolaunch

    Looks like it would become 2 planes after the first bump.
  11. Race the Case

    No more smoking in the bar, sorry.
  12. Race the Case

    Valencia is in as usual
  13. Race the Case

    We're having to down-scale the FPC this year. Cutting out a few of the stops.
