      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. Dutch sailors revolt

    The needs of what "Majority"? People who own a boat? People who want to own a boat? People who race a boat? People who want to race a boat? People who own a sailboat? People who want to own a sailboat? People who race a sailboat? People who want to race a sailboat around buoys? People who want to distance race sailboats? How about the entire population of the country? I want my money going to the things that interest me.
  2. Foils

    I see the Great White Google Monster did it again. Lake Pee politely explained to DumbLardass that Stereolithography does not build with metal at 4:06. SL has always been plastic parts formed on a platform in a vat of light sensitive liquid polymer. The process was invented, named, patented and a company formed, 3D Systems, in 1986. Chris O followed up with additional details about the lack of experience, education and intelligence of The Doug Beast at 4:28. Then DumbLoser made one of his infamous mad dash Google searches to "prove" his point. AS USUAL, DirigibleLump found a website with matching search terms, his idea of "research", which he immediately posted a link to. Had DistopianLouse actually read the result of his search, he would have found that the page was simply a listing of several machine shops and proto makers. Had he actually looked at just one of the COMPANY website he would have seen that some of them do Stereolithogray AND several types of metalwork. This groundbreaking revelation was posting at 4:45!!!!!!!!! It took only 39 minutes for this scathing rebuttal to be posted. Only 39 minutes to post a link to a website which proves that DL is the one who "don't know what (he is) talking about". AS USUAL, the DL made a fool of himself by citing websites about things he has no education, experience, or knowledge of any kind. ONLY 39 MINUTES TO MAKE A FOOL OF HIMSELF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A NEW RECORD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Radio Control Multihulls

    What video are you people looking at? All I have seen is a massively overpowered, half-length ama, non-performing, RC trimaran, that heels too far back and would flip over in a slight breeze if it weren't excessively wide. Doogie constantly refers to the main hull foiling, but all that I can see is HEELING. ANY model tri can "fly" the main hull with enough wind. A Hobie 14 can "fly" a hull, but it certainly isn't foiling. There is no evidence of foiling by the main hull. The blow-up by L.O.T. shows the ridiculous amount of rearward heel which causes the leeward "foil" to acquire about a 30degree angle of attack. This might cause a momentary lift until the A.O.A. returns to normal. This "DOES NOT" constitute flying. It is sad that ChubbyDougie would post a video of his failure and then try to convince this crowd that it was doing something that his own video clearly shows it isn't. He should read the story of the Emperors New Clothes, and realize that he is nekkid.
