      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. There's a whole other world of US motor racing outside of your statistics..I would bet if you just looked at karting and concession kart league racing you could come up with your numbers..how about the thousands of employees at Penske, Gannassi, Hendrick, Gibbs Racing to name a few who are directly involved with the running of race cars, are they considered participants? i don't believe that AC cats have any effect on the participation in sailing..young or old, but virtually every race car driver starts in karting... i apolagise for confusing someone else's post with yours..
  2. I'm filing this post under 'drunk utter bollocks' as its after 6pm... 48,688 posts...
  3. As usual here whenever F1 comes up the alternate facts show up..motor racing in the US is huge, most big towns have a track which could be karting, 1/4 midgets, midgets, any number of USAC/NASCAR junior/senior classes, there are also club racing FF, F4, sports car races, NASCAR , Indy car with feeder classes, Imsa, sprint car races, Drag Car racing with many classes...to equate it to badminton shows that you have not researched the subject you claim to know so much about... You defend the last AC which had no interest to the sector it was aimed at, face bookers, Joe Sixpackers and alienated the sailors who actually had an interest in the AC..it attracted virtually no new sailors to the sport which was part of lazzavisions reason for cats.. As for your diffences between classes I notice no ever talks about an TP88 version of the 52, in an offshore race with the chance of 25/30 knts of breeze...check out big air Med Cup races, the difference between them and 50 cats is that they maybe slower than cats in 15 knts but they look so much more dramatic and the sailors are actually making the boat go fast rather than pumping oil....I don't expect you to get it...
  4. I'll put this in the drunk utter bollocks file.... 48,668 posts...
  5. Bummer...the evil axis now has a four year head start on the new boat design....all without a single word leaking out...but the spinbot has his finger on the pulse.... good thing the London Agreement is in place...oh wait...the tight five didn't win the cup.... karma's a bitch...
  6. Spinbot mining for dirt on anyone except lazza and russ especially if it's skm, who he hates only slightly less than GD...you can't open it unless you subscribe so we'll put this post in the 'utter bollocks' file... Reasons to be cheerful...it takes him up to 48,619 posts on SA, and there is good science which says when he hits send on post 50K his head will blow off his shoulders...
  7. Adrian Newey saw how OD the rules were and decided to design the ultimate Aston Martin and then turn his attention back to F1, if he ever gets to design a proper AC boat, he will be a game changer...
  8. 48,611 posts on saac 5% drunken bollocks 45% cut and paste 50% utter bollocks...see above...
  9. Great shot....thanks..
  10. Of course you have.....how many get to do it? I bet you never met one who got off on Commanche or Hugo Boss...or the Volvos...
  11. Well maybe...when lazza/russ figured out that they couldn't get bmworacleusa up to speed and win a cup, and they decided that a DoG lawyer shit fight was the way to go, their naval architects recalled how Bad Dennis got the better of the kiwis with a winged cat and advised on a cat protocol so the evil erne$to couldn't slide a wheel under them with a cat...and why not go big with a fuck off wing and spend some of lazza's trouser money...lazza got a hardon and they went with it... Some exciting monos have been developed since then, imocas, volvos and VG's, Commanche... and with the full kick in the nuts of AC development who knows what would happen.. You say doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity..well you have had DoG cats, AC72's, world super league of the world 45's and AC50's...I see no evidence that sailing has changed its image, has drawn a tv audience or has generated any interest from junior sailors or indeed the average club sailor or cruiser..nor the fucking face bookers, Joe six packers it was all aimed at... Maybe it's time to see if an AC boat that has some resemblance to the boats that we all sail can change things..anyone who has seen tp 52's in big air knows are full on, AC typo 90's in the HG just might remind everyone that sailing is techy, fast and fun, something that in their dreams they could see themselves doing....
  12. If you have to ask the difference between the two clubs you wouldn't understand the a answer.... All these trolls since your heros got spanked just show how kissing lazz/russ ass has fucked up your head, you can't believe that everyone is not as morally bankrupt as your heros...you thought that RC 's rogering PB's 62 program was a master stroke but it's come back to haunt you, your hundreds of posts slagging off PB and Max S for helping TNZ show what a twat you are and that indeed..karma is a bitch..and now you are outraged that the evil axis ITA and NZ are getting a head start!.... 48,600 posts...50% utter bollocks...
  13. Pinot kicked in again.. BT doesn't have 'notion' of guys dressed as you suggest, just your spin on anything different to lazza vision, which in case you missed it didn't work for anyone but you and about twenty posters here... As for 'prat' you don't really know what it means but you define it...
  14. Except for a lot of people in NZ no one else in the world watched what you think was ' more successful than anticipated....
  15. Yea it's a bit like your hero lazza got in SF and NY after his victories...
