      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. I think you find there a number of yacht clubs that have a "Lipton Cup", I have seen at least three. Maybe he donated cups extensively, maybe it helped sell tea.
  2. NO and JS were not at Hamilton Island Race Week. We're do you get this shit from.
  3. ETNZ didn't walk away from cats because they wanted to be superior, they walked away from cats because LR told them they had to, as per their agreement. If Dalton had his drathers, this time around would be in cats not monos.
  4. Think RKO
  5. You can hope all you want but it aint going to happen in Australia. There is no will for the AC amoungst the very small number of likely candidates and I dont think JB could raise event one tenth of what is required.
  6. Sounds like you want to spend someone else's money. Patriotism is not going to drive this, it will be hard economic pragmatic decisions and I don't see it happening.
  7. Left wing do-gooders should be banned from this website. All they do is spread lies that match their beliefs
  8. Actually it was a shifty 3 to 7 knts during the race.
  9. RKO
  10. Slightly off topic but if you read his posts from the last VOR they were just crazy with some of his suppositions and theories. The guy has no idea about reality and sailing.
  11. Indio know nothing about sailing. He has never been in a boat but makes out to be an expert in AC
  12. Isn't it time a Victorian owner stepped up to the plate instead of just sailing around a pond.
  13. Looks like Celestial could do a buffalo girls, way offshore and doing nearly 8 knots. Wild Oats down to under 2 knots. LB less than 1 knot.
  14. So the question is who is going to be first to pull the pin. My money is on Rudy.
  15. Is that legal under IRC?
