      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.

    Thx Duwke, Sushi, wish they had some with big kite up, hard to prove you did it without photographic evidence! Only taken me six years to learn. AND GREAT ONES OF ALL Y'ALL!

    You know all about why I have a big kite boat, nothing worse than ddw without it, unless maybe yer foiling!

    I'm so going to try it sometime, as with my MXray background will be a fun comparo, like a vw to f1, but will report all fairly. Nothing I have sailed was as fun as my completely modded mx in 20-25, not to windward of course.

    I agree Darren, but with him on it it's still a 71. And lets sail, am ready for next year! And let's all ski together this year!

    Seriously best time I've had sailing this year! The whole thing was just epic.Thanks to all the workers, etc, that made it so.And Holo, if you only new, it's been 6 years I've been trying to sail my AC, that was the first time I never capsized! Especially with that massive black and yellow thing in front of boat, even made 3 gybes. You sailed very well, and we'll fix that rockets rating by next race!
