      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. I wish my cock was as big as your wife's tits.
  2. Many team sports limit teams player payroll. NFL and NBA for instance. It has the effect of forcing teams to add a number of younger unproven members to the teams at lower cost contracts to balance out the superstar contracts. Rookie contracts. Just a thought.
  3. In link above slides a based on KV slides design. I used to order these by the 1000. They are as good as any. Accurides are a lower profile and are available in full ex down to 12" which can be handy for boat draws. No bodies mention Blum. Blum are the biggest player and have lots of self closing options but I have not looked in the anti corrosive properties. The self closing parts are mostly plastic, but the spring will die young I would guess.
  4. These hulls might make great arma's for a 50' tri. The added righting moment would prolly make the foils useless but for a off sure racing tri?
  5. ETNZ has so much more control over their boat. Watching that hook was so cool.
  6. Richard Pearse probably did fly 1st. However the Earl B was referring to the Wright Bros mastering the flight control surfaces. The wright bros also developed the first tables of angles of attack on propellers. Maybe didn't fly 1st but sure mastered the shit out of it for a couple of bike store owners with no financial backing. ETNZ sure did master this rule.
  7. I actually like your live commentary as much as any in all of sailing and have for a number of years. The volvo start you did and especially the M32. And your facebook dock out thing this morning was great. Just to balance it all out thought....your a punk.
  8. How do you get to paranoia from the statement I made about?
  9. I wish I shared your confidence. Just seems like a long way to go still.
  10. Is there a designated sarcasm font. Because ...
  11. So your suggesting the Cup is a technology development contest?
  12. Does anyone understand what this means?
  13. Maybe. But by that same algebra, is gloating before the final race has been won .... a cultural thing!!
  14. I don't know what nouse means, but you should check out her sailing credentials on her web page. It's impressive. She probably forgotten more about racing than I will ever know. But that was a shitty bit of video journalism.
