      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.

    At speed the breeze comes from the front apparently.

    .......Is it not common for franchises within American professional sport to be passed from rich owner to rich owner? And for those already in the game to vet and blackball any prospective owner/manager they are uncomfortable with. I.e to run the 'sport'/business like an old-boys-network/ego stroking machine with one-upmanship, rivalries and jealousies played out in a semi-public way. Taking the NBA precedent, for OR, Kiwi Black is the new Black.

    Leave it to sail world to send a pre-flintstone to interview the kids. Leave it to Sail-World to actually cover the event, with a highly-qualified crew, instead of largely ignoring it like other media outlets. Teams are thrilled. But hey, if you know better interviewers who are ready, willing and able to actually do a better job, then by all means send them to Sail-World. why is that highly qualified crew reading during the answers? Keeping up with the latest news on SA AC like all the other journos?

    Would it be in OR's interest for the RD to declare AR as being unsafe?
  5. Artemis?

    ^^ everyone is thinking that!! AR comming clean would obviate the need for the RD to modify the class rule to allow OR to be more reliably competative. RC would have spent more hours on the minutiae of possible rule changes than LR/ETNZ in objecting. The 'safety' excuse, quite perversely imvho, creates the opportunity.

    Von Paulus, for history aficionados... Did he not surrender to a bunch of clod busters defending a Tractor Factory? (for tractor afficionados)

    I asked Sir David Attenborough for comment on the evolution of an AC 72 foiler. He was insightful in his response Evolution of an AC 72 OR 17.1: http://www.arthurgrosset.com/sabirds/photos/tacpat16461.jpg OR 17.1.5: http://lostworld.pair.com/trips/alaska2008/day7/IMG_1515.jpg OR 17.2.1 prototype http://www.flickr.com/photos/labavin/3939704589/ Artimis: http://www.joelhaasstudio.com/gooney.htm Meanwhile at ETNZ , G.D created NZ1: http://www.wilddelaware.com/wp-content/black-skimmer-10214.jpg

    That's just smart color coding. As everyone knows, man-parts are magnetically repelled by anything wearing leopard print. Looks like cougar print to me. They will be fully alert.

    I think the maroon was respondible for the paint job.

    Make sure to get the 427 version. I love that commercial with the Vette ripping down the country roads. edit: also cool watching live in-car during the 24hrs of LeMans Saw a liitle of that too. In case you were curious, picked up a 6.2L version. Nicer than the photo'd one above but also a roadster, triple black. The 427's are just a touch too terrible unless you're a serious tracker. Love the Vette too (you know that), but this is what makes my heart beat extremely fast (and I'm not telling you whether the real toy is on the right or on the left side of the pic): See yours and raise you mine: (....and I am a tractor lover... cars like this should be R Rated)
