      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. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Anybody up for a "Go fund me" for the DA-WOODY expedition? I could go $100 US.
  2. Team NYYC

    After significant introspection, this.

    In the spirit of charity, i can send you some seed potatoes so you can grow your way out of one of the worst calamities in NZ history: Chipocalypse: potato shortage in New Zealand sparks crisp crisis https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/16/chipocalypse-potato-shortage-in-new-zealand-sparks-crisp-crisis
  4. Team NYYC

    Ok. We get it. NYCC is not your interest. Fucking cars on a sailing forum is not my interest. Time to let go of the GREATEST THREAD HIJACK EVER!
  5. Team NZ

    Wind, waves and tides at Tauranga during probable race dates?
  6. Team NZ

    This. As USA AC fan since the 70's, I say that we could not approach the enthusiasm and loyalty of you Kiwis. I want my cup back, but I want it done right.
  7. Team NYYC

    This. I rooted for the Kiwis to take the cup from Larry and good on them for what they're doing. I'm now back to being a USA fanboy. Would love to see another team or two from the West coast.
  8. Oracle Team USA

    My bad. Mud wrestling with pigs.
  9. Oracle Team USA

    WTF? I guess the most powerful economic Nation on the planet has no chance to put together a valid team. The talent of sailing men and women in the US must be lower than dog shit. I hated Oracle, but you Sir, are off your meds.
  10. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Realizable sources assure me that Team Anarchy finally have their act together after these oh so many years and are actively hiring crew and staff.
  11. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Maybe the wrong thread for this. Pretend it refers to the nationality thing. I don’t believe women should be given preferential treatment in sports (except that childbirth thing.) That said, are there sailing women out there that, given a shot, would have a decent chance at full membership as an AC36 crew? I would like to see some women crew if they are qualified.
  12. Dennis Conner 1988 catamaran win video?

    You are half right.
  13. I'm an old, fat, retired, white guy from the USA. Just the type of AC tourist you want to get. Never crossed my mind to go to Bermuda. When the dates and venue are set for AC 36, I'm calling a travel agent. Based on other vacations I've done in the last 10 years, I'll probably spend ~$US 10k in NZ for a 2 week trip. Just a single data point, but I think there are more like me out there.

  15. I don't think "BORN in" is fair. Citizen for 10 years prior to match. If dual citizen, country of birth.
