      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. 2017 Rules Rule 69

  2. UK City Island Loft

  3. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    There is no way in hell that those dogs would look like that after being at sea for 5 months.
  4. WTF is up with all these Hollywood Lefty molesters???

    I am not red faced furious about either, yes they both piss me off. But do you actually believe that 'locker room talk' is the same as rape? Does that mean you think that saying you could kill someone is the same as going out and actually doing it? And it is not limited to Hollywood - it happens everywhere.
  5. WTF is up with all these Hollywood Lefty molesters???

    Guess you never actually listen or read what was said just assume that who ever you get your news from is correct. Would love to hold you accountable for everything you have ever said in private.
  6. WTF is up with all these Hollywood Lefty molesters???

    So you crucify the guy who said he could, but give a pass to the one that actually did it numerous times, lied about it and had his wife cover for him. and then complain that the other guy got elected. You really are some kind of stupid.
  7. Donna Brazile comes clean Sucked to be Bernie

    Sarcasm - got it.
  8. Donna Brazile comes clean Sucked to be Bernie

    A bit surprised? Hope that was sarcasm or are you really that naive?
  9. Racing Rules question

    True - but what is the penalty - turn penalty, 1/2 or 1 point. Depends on the severity of the damage.
  10. Racing Rules question

    That's partly due to competitors putting up a fair amount of money as damage deposits. They won't get flicked for trading paint but are sure going to pay for it.
  11. asking for repair costs

    So as an experienced sailor and having chaired events, you still couldn't figure out how to avoid hitting a boat that was racing. And have the balls to ask for help paying for the repair. If you were racing and this happened you would be just as much at fault. Have you offered to help pay the other guys repair? Edit: forgot to add while the other boat says they didn't see you, you on the other hand sound like you did see him. Yet still you hit him.
  12. asking for repair costs

    So let me get this straight - you claim to be an experienced sailor that has chaired many races. And still you hit a boat racing? If you were as good as you claim you would never have been in the race course nor interfere with boats racing.
  13. How's that impeachment going, turd-burglars?

    Still not as bad as Obama
  14. Rule 17 - Proper Course rule question

    Agree it would be in violation of 18.2 b but you have to be able to prove it was inside the zone. I do a lot of umpiring and can tell you that the majority of sailors think they are in the zone well before they actually are.
  15. Active shooter on the Vegas Strip

    Because a bump stock is not a firearm, the ATF classified it as firearm part -- so the ATF wrote in a letter that it approved it because it doesn't have any real jurisdiction over firearm parts. And that was that. They didn't seems too concerned at the time. Thank you Obama!
