      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. Laser Performance?

    They shuttered their factory in Rhode Island and quit selling product in this hemisphere a few years ago. As dealers have sold off their remaining stock many have decided to sell AEROs or other lines of sporting equipment. Central Texas former dealer now sells auto parts and general hardware. Houston’s dealer has been vigorously promoting the AERO and other RS brand boats. Former customers of the former North American Sunfish /Laser factory are either scavenging parts from old boats or switching to sailing in the very well promoted and supported AERO class boat. There are still occasional Laser and Sunfish events being held around North America where old friends get together to bitch about LP’s destruction of their formerly great game but, without access to new boats and parts, the strict one design rules that made those two games fabulously successful are rarely enforced. A while back the Laser game managers decided to allow a fancy new Sail and composite top section that made it necessary to spend $1000 to keep an older But pristine Laser competitive. A few well connected sailors have managed to procure those items but the rest of the fleet still brings the old outmoded designs to competitions. Others bring sails from aftermarket suppliers like Intensity or a local favorite sailmaker. One design Sunfish and Laser Sailing In North America is pretty much a thing of the past. Maybe the AERO will replace them both. Maybe someone will see the giant wide open available market for an an inexpensive, durable, singlehanded Sailboat and choose to start the next sailing boom. In the meantime, your best bet for obtaining Laser parts is to befriend someone in Australia and convince that friend to ship parts or whole boats made by the only builders who still give a rat’s patootie about Sailboat racing. I suggest you Sail it as is or take your Laser to the landfill and buy an AERO

    By Thursday the re-runs will be over and no one will be discussing it

  5. Obama compares Trump to Hitler YCMTSU

    Hitler did a lot of work for me. The Dotard, so far, has been my best servant in many many years.

    Sorry JBSF!!' The post was a straight line softball slowly pitched down the middle of the strike zone. A pre-emptibe strike is justified

  9. Titanic Sailed Too Soon

    According to a study just completed by engineers and meteorologists from MIT the Titanic could have safely made its crossing this year. The size and number of icebergs sufficient to sink the Titanic has not just dwindled everywhere but according to MIT engineers, none of the icebergs along Titanic's fatal route has been large enough to sink the Titanic since 1998. MIT students are currently raising funds to construct a new Titanic and actually make the trip to prove their point. "We are embarrassed by the fact there are still citizens of the USA who are unaware of the massive changes mankind is making to our climate, and we feel it is our duty to educate as many of the remaining ignorant souls as possible." said Lewis Keeting, the 2015 class valedictorian and current grad student. "Our plan is to invite as many alumni as possible to make the maiden voyage, and perhaps leave any actual climate change deniers to try getting back in the old fashioned lifeboats. As insane as it seems, we have found a few past MIT students who believe the malarkey foisted upon us by those who sell carbon based fuels. Those with trillions to lose obviously deny climate change is being driven by a huge contribution from mankind, but, to the best of our knowledge, not one of those deniers is actually an MIT graduate." #Titanic II #MIT proves global warming. #no more icebergs

  11. FDA Chief Chosen

    "I am confident his winning attitude and personal knowledge of drug use makes him perfect for the job!" Said The POTUS Elect at 3 am. "We need someone who will eagerly remove all those pesky regulations" he sniffled, "on drugs like this very best cocaine. Charlie was my first choice as running mate but when I went to his beachfront house to ask him, Ashton Kutcher answered the door."
  12. Laser Top Section Recall

    According to sailor spokesman Jan van der Phil there is significant reason for a factory recall / exchange for all previously built Laser sailboat mast top sections. The builder and ILCA have determined the old aluminum sections bend too easily and are therefore inadequate for their intended use. Owners of any Laser mast top section previously supplied by LP may bring those sections somewhere and complain vigorously. Details of this recall will be described in future press releases from LP or whoever takes over as the official Laser Builder in North America when the current owners of the Laser Trademark decide to sell or abandon their claim to those rights.

  14. PA Tournament of Assholes - Round 2 - Benghazi Region

    Governail was an imposter who posted in the summer of 2006. Unlike the beloved swell fellow Gouvernail, Governail was an ass. It is unfair that Gouvernail has collected votes from at least 30 voters who most certainly mistook the scumbucket landt eating Governail for the wonderful friendly considerate Gouvernail. The election should be immediately called with Raz'r recognized as the assholier of the two.
