      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.

    tucker thompson and that horrible musak make the awards ceremony like a pro wrestling event
  2. Live Racing Thread

    twas funny, listening to NO and CD on NBC feed, as they discussed the future of the AC after the ETNZ win- as no doubt they are wondering where and for whom they will be working soon...

    the big splits are making me nervous- too much potential to lose lots of ground cover, ETNZ, but keep the hammer down
  5. Live Racing Thread

    take any OR morale and crumble it like a little piece of paper

    I'd be more comfortable with a big lead if the breeze were not so shifty- cover, boys!

    horizon job

    is there a backpocket COR-in-waiting if ETNZ wins?

    ART was marginally faster on that first reach, yes, but every time ETNZ went off the start to windward of ART, ART sailed very high of rhumb, and was then able to bear off first into the lead when ENTZ went off the line to leeward of ART, they never employed the same tactic, and would get rolled by boat speed thank heaven for awesome VMG

    a win is a win is a win

    and that, mates, is a morale-busting victory

    ART screwing the boundary is just stupid
  13. I tried to keep interested... I did. I grew up with the America's Cup, from the late fifties onward... I used to play on the 12s as a kid... and I supported Oracle against Alinghi, in the battle of the behemoths... I loved the San Francisco event... I thought and still think the foiling cats are remarkable... but... but... but... But after bullshit decision (I love Bermuda, but moving the event there burned an America's Cup feature I thought was very important: competing on the home waters of the winning yacht club) after bullshit decision (the America's Cup should NEVER have become a one-design regatta) after bullshit decision has led to changes announced here, that is IT- the America's Cup is a travesty, a mere shadow of its former glory, and now little more than a way to keep ridiculously overpaid professional sailors employed for a few more years.
  14. Where's the EC300 thread????

    been thinking about it, and gotta say, IMHO, allowing three in crew per boat is not a good decision one of the great challenges of the event is the management of sleep- or lack thereof seems like having three aboard would make that a MUCH easier task- it just turns into a sprint- to say nothing of the great advantage in boathandling anyone else want to chime in with their two cents on this new decision? I dunno- maybe too many "filters" have been taken away from the event already; as I recall, didn't it use to be that competitors had to be able to unstep and restep their rigs to fit under low bridges, some which had narrow openings? Isn't that really why Randy's SewSew was designed to scissor in the first place- to fit through a narrow bridge opening?
  15. Where's the EC300 thread????

    great performance by Spawn, a very clever, purpose-built-and-designed boat by the crafty OH Rodgers (let us here recall how ahead of its time was the Kiwi 35) but three guys on board for the race, though- is that something new? separate class? always thought it was a solo or double-handed event, in all classes...? any other boats with three in crew? ever?
