      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. Best Rock Song Intros

    Love the Maynard reference, man. I would go Primal Scream or Blue Birdland, but Conquistador is fine, too. [/derail]
  2. World Series

    It wasn't long ago we were going to Disastros games for <$10 a seat. Go Astros!

  4. Get real, the America's cup is long dead

    I was hoping for Larry to win the DOG challenge to get rid of EB, and the Kiwis to win in San Francisco to get rid of Larry. It happened a cycle late. Hopefully the next iteration will be something new that requires more crew work than pumping hydraulic fluid and more tactics than sailing from boundary to boundary. God, I sound old. GET OFF MY LAWN!
  5. Race Replays

    I just walked in the door from a 10 day trip and have been very careful to avoid any news about the AC. Torrents are running now. Rudder if you ever make it to North Carolina, dinner's on me.
  6. Moovie Review Threade

    Just saw Four Brothers. Worst. Movie. Ever. Just say no.

  8. Ransomware

    So the hackers have limited to no access to the funds they extort. There's really no reason to do this at all. Sociopaths.

    Rudder, this is fucking fantastic. I can't imagine that the jackwagons at americascup.com would be thrilled to learn you're doing it.
  10. How to watch live races?

    Today's event isn't showing up on the NBCSports app schedule. This was originally a lay day, so those of us depending on the app may be out of luck.
  11. Ransomware

    My receptionist was cleaning out her email trash bin and encountered a UPS email she did not remember. She opened it, clicked on the invoice attachment and installed Locky.Osiris on the main PC in the office. The data on the machine are now encrypted and I'm supposed to log onto Tor and transfer 4 bitcoin to those cocksuckers so they will decrypt my data. That's over $10,000. Nope. Not gonna happen. I wouldn't send those cybercriminalmotherfuckers the sweat off my ballsack. We've got data backups so nothing is lost except for the last 4 hours of Friday afternoon and we can reconstruct that from paper. I trashed the physical drive and started over with a new windows install on a new drive. It will take about an hour in the morning to reinstall the data and network the pc. It's just a pain in the ass. I'd love to put my hands on the assholes that did this.

    Rudder, awesome! Seeding all three.
  13. dennis conner

    I met him 20 years ago. Sperry Shoes brought him here to Wilmington to promote a new boat shoe they had produced. He was sitting behind a table with a big stack of shoe boxes and re/white/blue decorations, and there was nobody else there. There wasn't a line to meet him, just DC sitting by himself at a table. We chatted for almost an hour. He was self-deprecating about the situation. He signed a copy of one of his books for a friend of mine. It was an enjoyable hour.
  14. How to watch live races?

    I downloaded the app and it blows goats. It crashes every time I launch it. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Same shit. Looks like it will be NBC or nothing for me.
