      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.

    I haven't hit the wreck. But I have seen a bit of it..... a brown rusted stub just poking its head above the waves..... about 5 metres off our starboard side. That was quite close enough, thanks.

    BA on BBC News Hardtalk..... a lot of what everyone knows already.... 'Americas Cup is sailings version of Formula 1 if you like'. 'Response from people in the street is suddenly I understand sailing..' 'Sailing is changing... a sport for athletes' (UK sailing gets about $23m from the lottery) 'Im working incredibly hard to get the funding together' 'With a small team we have been working for a couple of years' 'Any Americas Cup team would jump at the chance to have Adrian Newey as part of their team' 'I have spoken to Adrian, not recently'.......

    I'm gobsmacked.....! Team Sailrocket, you deserve everything that's coming your way now. SA Frontpage only needs to be four figures with a dot in the middle!

    Hey Sailrocket, that's stunning news. There's not a few english words that describe well what you guys have been up to over these years. I think tenacity, doggedness, resolution, diligence, determination, stubbornness.... and above all incredible perseverance....would all be in there. Serious congratulations......

    This reminds me of the best UK voted film one liner of all time by Michael Caine in the Italian Job, which was..... ".......You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off...." ( ) Maybe Larry could hire him for the BMWO film story and he could do (in a the same cockney accent) a..... "........ you're only supposed to have the bloody hulls in the water....." Giatt
