      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. Thanks. That sounds right.
  2. Does anyone remember Camille? I think there was a Carter 42 called Camille in the 1988 Pacific Cup? If so, we sailed parallel to them for over 12 hours. You couldn't have found two more equal boats in one design. We lost them at sundown. Days later we got to Kaneohe and they weren't there. Days later they showed. Story we heard was there was a fire on board and DR'ed the rest of the way with no coms or electronics. They saw the southern most island off the starboard side with binoculars. Island hopped up to Oahu. They hit the dock, there was a scuffle and the boat sat half put away for days. I don't rmemeber much, I was holding down a lawn chair by the pool for days and KYC treated me too well.
