      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. Artemis?

    Please delete your post as it's grossly inaccurate: Andrew Alderson who wrote the article after scouring the internet never attributed the quotation to any specific team member. I agree, I say it very bad. Team member should not make unapproved statement, even if he reveals no identity. Secrecy very important.
  2. Artemis?

    Bad team member here: he make statement that not good for protecting officials, rich owner, designer and insurance company, very very bad.
  3. Artemis?

    You are correct, we don't matter. So what's the problem in just shutting up for a while? I know, from specific previous experience, that families may come to boards like this. There's been a direct request from Artemis, who are presumably in touch with the family, that they are given space to deal with the situation and that speculation is suspended. We don't need to guess what the family might or might not want because, as close as directly as we are going to get, we've been told. They'd like us please to shut up for a while. Your opinion is that there is nothing here that a relative might be upset about. I couldn't agree less. For starters, there is non-stop rehashing of the Newcastle article. I know for a fact that the mindless speculation going on all over the sailing media isn't helping and has caused hurt. While maybe the answer would be to simply not read the press and forums, a lot of comfort can be gained by reading so many positive comments about Bart and the supportive messages that are out there. The mindless speculation makes it a bitter sweat experience. I know this is Anarchy and I should expect no different, but IMO, some of the comments and speculation have reached an all time low in insensitivity and inappropriate speculation. I cannot fathom what people are hoping to achieve. I realise that we all post on forums like this because of an over inflated sense of importance, but surely this is one time to put all that to one side and realise that we have little to no influence on what is going on in the AC world and that this very speculation just proves to many just how irrelevant this forum really is. We are losing a lot of good will and friends. Yes this is smart advice. In my country, whenever something happens we all wait for official story from goverment. Very important to never question or speculate, official story is always correct one, and the one we should all believe. Its good that no film is made public to contradict story, very important that officials are protected in this case. We dont want family getting access to video or ideas that could give them unnesecesary cause to approach officials for lawsuit or public seeing ideas that go against official story. I am glad this is western ideals too.
