      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.

    Whatever the political bullshit behind allowing AR to remain in the regatta, the merits/risks of having them on the same piece of water as the other teams or GCYC are shit scared of not having them as COR. NOBODY can demean the phenomenal effort put in by the AR team in getting the new boat on the water and stably foiling on the first day without looking mean spirited. This new boat foiled better than OR did for ages. Doesn't seem to want to flop down on its arse when turning. If they can get out on the race course, lets hope NO doesn't do anything stupid that adversely affects either of the other two teams. Hell they might even give LR a fright or two. Maybe there are too many bar stool racers or sad people who have failed so badly at life they can on run down anyone who succeeds on these forums.

    Wow just imagine if he re configures it for both wheels and ice. Be an outstanding achievement to hold the out right speed records on water, land and ice in basically the same vehicle. Once he sobers up he is going to have to either find a real job anyway or why not have a crack at the other two records
