      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. The End is Nigh!

    Is he looking for Sarah Connor?
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    There's some drone footage from TToP yesterday where it flew round Scally who waved. (Sorry, on the iPad so no idea how to link from the app to the video)
  3. The Ashes 2017

    So, nearly time then... predictions? I thought ENG would get murdered without Stokes but now not so sure. Have at it!
  4. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    It was from Vestas. They have a video up with the cross being filmed (well, sort of)
  5. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Do keep up, it's for the in-port races
  6. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    Yeah, loved his description of what happened. It's exactly what we'd have said too!
  7. F1 2017

    I especially enjoyed Mark Webber's take on it "it was a sh*t decision." Cue a lot of damage limitation from the rest of the presenters for the swearing on live TV
  8. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    I've got just the chart but no boats on the App
  9. Nationalities of sailors

    Pretty sure Yuki has sailed most of the races
  10. Live Racing Thread

    Thank goodness they are all ok
  11. Live Racing Thread

    that was quite a race. Well done both teams for getting round the course in (mostly) one piece!
  12. Live Racing Thread

    In a very bad place!
  13. Live Racing Thread

    Sorry Kiwis but that was a poor penalty and (controversial around here) I'd say Artermis deserved to win that but wow what an amazing race!
  14. Long books, series and sagas

    I like the Saxon series -The Last Kingdom et al. The story of Alfred the Great, and uniting England. There's the Flashman series by George MacDonald Fraser. His story of serving in Burma in the war Quartered safe out here is worth finding for those who like that sort of thing. Think I must have all Cornwell's books always a favourite of mine. What do you think of the BBC series by the way? I think it's pretty good. Another cracker is Simon Scarrow's Macro & Cato Roman series (and his Napoleonic set of 4 is pretty good too) CJ Sansom's Shardlake series is excellent as a medieval hoodunit Lindsay Davis' Falco series is also an excellent hoodunit set in Rome
  15. VOR 2017-18

    Didn't Team Brunel have a Yellow/Black Boat in the 14/15 Race? yes
