      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. Job Opportunity - Best Talent

    By Jove I think you've got it. Could populate a small city with the numbers churned through that office.
  2. JJ Giltinan, not a word

    That would/should be so easy to organise. You could drive an aydeen no problem. Come to AUS when there's a Blokart event on, and do both.
  3. Volvo RTW Race - April Fools joke. In poor taste

    My reference was to The Harold Holt Memorial SWIMMING Pool in Malvern (?) Only in Australia!
  4. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    This thread is one of a select few that I always check. Sorry Bob but I always check on Rimas first! Please keep sharing your amazing boats and knowledge with us mere mortals.
  5. US Sailing turns up the volume to save Clipper Cove

    Signed We have those developers who would take any public land and turn it into concrete. Luckily we have laws and plenty of access to the beaches and lakes across Oz so I can't believe how little access you guys in the US have to sailing venues. I'm not sure how much my signature will influence the outcome, but I firmly believe that that lack of access is a major reason the USA doesn't have a really dominant sailing team. Don't get me wrong. The USA has produced some exceptional talent in sailing but with a population that is huge compared to OZ there is scope for the US to be the absolute best. As a proud Ozzy I hope it doesn't happen (LOL) and I wish you well with your challenge.

    Was that in a swimming pool?
  7. Super Foilers

    The FP'ers wouldn't know "Anarchy" if it bit them on the ass! If Superfoilers do not represent sailing at its most anarchic I don't know what does. So along comes something thats not a J111 (for example todays FP story) and its a bit different. and a bit harder to sail brilliantly, and you FP bozos get stuck into it like a pack of mongrol dogs. SA perfectly demonstrates the problems with US sailing. Just have a look where Dinghy Anarchy fits into the sceme of things, right down the list in NINTH place. FFS you have to scroll down lower than MH and GH anarchy. And this lack of respect for dinghy sailing is why your sailing is stuffed. IMHO

    Any news at all from WA?
  9. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Euroflex didn't seem to have any problems with the tide. Some well known sailors made some elementary mistakes that made them look a bit foolish. You obviously know nothing about sailing in tide either. And calling someone a dickhead because you don't agree with his/her POV is hardly intelligent discourse. As F15 said if you don't like sailing in tide then don't, and we will all be the better for it.
  10. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Not very well actually. Facts that back up your claims of death and injury is what I asked in plain english. And you know what? That dreaded channel marker has been there since christ was a boy. Its called "plan ahead".. Just a part of normal race craft. If you know how to race.
  11. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    He probably doesnt much like paying taxes either but it is what it is.
  12. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Not even close. But I have been PRO for Etchells at that venue What I dont like is completely fake and unsupportable claims from keyboard hacks who couldnt organise a pissup in a brewery, trying desperately to be seen as some sort of expert. You could solve this little dilemma by providing the facts to back up your claims. Simples!
  13. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    So you cant back it up huh?
  14. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Please quote the sources for that seemingly outrageous claim.
  15. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    FIFY You don't race much do you? Well he did. And when I chatted to him on the Sunday morning he wasn't the least concerned. Some of you guys just don't understand. All this nancy talk about risk and injury. Whats the death toll after 3 rounds? As a youngster I successfully raced motorcycles at Bathurst so don't tell me about risk. I got more permanent aches from sailing Skates than I ever got from motorbike racing btw. Superfoilers are my idea of sailing anarchy. The idea, NOT the website!
