      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. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11880565 Interesting input from Tim Smyth here. re consequences of a NZ win. One more sleep!
  2. May not be able to buy the majic wand this time.
  3. Damn ...thats the aborted race. Googledrive overload! Try again later....wow.
  4. Any chance of a google drive of the race today? Got it Ta ...owe you a beer.
  5. I wonder if shithill has anything of substance up his sleeve other than his spoiling for a fight? Maybe some Airbus power plant failure?
  6. You should get that seen to.....otherwise you seem a reasonable dude.
  7. +10 Thing is, past AC winners respect DB and the competition he presents. Besides, he's a gentleman. Ben's in same Genre as are most of the competitors. SA on ignore. All he brings to the table is bile.
  8. You are a sad piece of work SA. Your serial lack of empathy suggests you get help before you become a public menace, or join ISIS. We wish you well.
  9. presser link as soon as .....please.....no sound as I was using the no frills boat lappy. Fucking mirrors slowed it to a Ctrl-alt-delete.
  10. Thanks, Nav. There is no upper limit for gusts, they of themselves cannot breech or exceed the wind limits, only the average has an upper limit That, in itself, spells peril.
  11. 1 hour ago, nav said: Gusts themselves cannot be over the limit - only the average. That makes no sense. Also, Is there a limit for top end of the gusts? Is there a time limit for duration of gusts? Rolling Av. is calculated at what interval? Seems somewhat flakey for boats optimised for specific wind range.
  12. If the wind data in the window before the race shows that the the rules were contravened, then on IM's head be it. He will have fucked up not calling it off. If they weren't...rock on!
  13. Good onya Pete. Tell 'em nothing take them nowhere...... Down but definitely not out.
  14. Down to straw men now? Its over move on.
  15. Agreed. That post gibe hull lift/ squirrel is a hint what could happen with insufficient room and erring on the side of safety. IMO, NO could have gone wider and still smoked TNZ. Mistake. Too intent on get-foot-on-throat. Good umpire call & wake up to avoid carnage.
