      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.

    When compared with rapid movements of an elevator, using rapid rotations of the main lifting surface to generate rapid and small changes in pitch would be slow. If you had an elevator to play with, why would you? But if you don't have an elevator (or consider it impossible to hide a new control system there) what can you do ? Similarly, If you don't have ailerons on your main foil (or consider it impossible to hide a new control system there).... Not that long prior to all this ETNZ figured out how to use adjustments in rake of the main lifting surface to control pitch, sidestepping the no elevator rule that was intended to prevent foiling. Maybe rapid movements are slow, but faster than not foiling. Porthos - joining dots is fun though, right.? Thanks again Barfly.

    Newbie here; Gf tits on their way and all that. Barfly - excellent. Excuse total ignorance : Was this adjusting flight to a target altitude or pitch ?
