      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. AC 36 Protocol

    Very remotely AC related. Have we already seen such a uninteresting AC at this point yet ? Even for you it seems that you only care about last ACs.
  2. AC 36 Protocol

    No rule, no team, nothing is moving, what's going on ?

    You show your contradictions, if they did not know at the beginning, how could have they change the rule in the middle of the race to help one team win ? Imagine your reaction if they had shortened a race in the middle of it in order to make OR win....

    I was there, boats screaming at 40 kts + along shore, amazing show, wonderful, city, fantastic coast around, lots of wind in the day, anarchists in the evening, fog during the night and champagne when possible. You'd rather sail and watch than whine about what you don't know.

    You make a good fan, ....twice.
  7. Oracle Team USA

    You said twice, what is the second one ?
  8. Oracle Team USA

    What's the evidence ?

    What is poor in the foils or the control system ? Seems that you don't remember last AC lessons about the position of the foil. Yes the superfoiler will be foioling like a pig as designed now.

    The boat that you don't believe will pitchpole to windward.
  11. Team NZ

    In memoriam, I took the photo a few years ago. I remember his epic arrival arrival in Brest in 1994. He died for refusing to give his AC watch, sad...
  12. Team NZ

    I completely admit that some may disagree, in my country's justice system this guy would get away pretty well as we can't demonstrate he pulled the trigger. There is not much gun control on the amazon and an honest sailor's life is worth more than these groups of assassins.

    BTW, come here think that the rapid control of the main foil allowed OR to be fast and stable. But the easiest way to do it, and less power hungry, was to move the rudder elevator. It was not authorized to do it though.
  14. Team NZ

    Any arsehole of the group that killed Blake deserve capital punishment and we should begin with this one. The example will save other sailors lifes.

    Good for him, I guess he is a better person in real life.
