      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 sailing team that managed finishes within a couple of minutes of LR after just a couple of weeks in the boat were not responsible for Artemis' earlier mismanagement and design misdirections. It was a highly impressive performance in the circumstances. We are also talking about people who lost a friend on May 9th. That they managed to continue says something about human spirit. It's a pity, Clean, that you feel the need to shit on it at this moment. Agreed, nobody learnt as fast as AR, the sailors and team members not involved in the decision making and politics gave it their all and in my opinion, did a phenomenal job in such a short space of time. I am sorry that the potential of the team and that boat are not going to be realised, which is not their fault. Hats off to a great sailing effort and a near vertical learning curve, you fellows did your absent friend proud.
  2. Well said sir, the attitude of entitlement here is barfworthy and the illusions of grandeur are just a "little" inflated. I particularly like your delicate term of phrase
  3. Tragic and a very sad day for sailing, sincerest condolences to Andrews family, friends and team mates. Clean, you had a chance to show some class and blew it, sometimes less is more.
