      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.

    Old Russell Locked up in his cage For sure he's no longer a sage His racing days done Américas cups won Now time to turn a page So he dreams up a little scheme To skim from the milk some cream Just take an event Who's best days are spent And make it worth more than it seems This plot has a little twist A nuance easily missed Because of a deed That should temper your greed The trophy is only in gift Let's organise some poodles And some billionaires with oodles And a couple of mates With some cash on their plates Whilst others are scratching their noodles But to make this enterprise fly You have to see eye to eye Keep your hands on the tiller And put lead in your filler Least some other crew passes you by Cos the business goes with the win And the earnings are spread too thin And for all the scheming It's downright demeaning When some other sod cashes in And that other sod may just be Dalts A man with various faults That you tried to up-end Not considered a friend Whose wounds have been treated with salts So enjoy your week of retreat Let's see if there'll be a repeat Of the famous comeback From defeat an attack That really was quite a feat

    There once was a sailor called Jimmy Whose forte was racing for money His nation of birth australia Their challenges lately a failure He's a sailor of fortune cor blimmy He signed with America's Best Quite proudly - hand on his chest With Russell it's nominal head The races he most often lead To peak sailings Everest But now he faces Pete burling Whose blood is not often curdling Whose eyebrows quite often knit And doesn't quite give a shit As events are now unfurling So Oracle had better shimmy And find some boatspeed gimme Cos they're three races down And risking their crown Or it's on to the dole queue for Jimmy

    For Dalton there seems to be boots Quite possibly promoted by Coutts He may yet need a minder Perhaps an ex-grinder ? As the chickens fly home to their roots . . . roost
