      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. VOR Man Overboard

    The Sailing Instructions require the AIS to be working at all times. The were non-compliant. Still something not quite right about this story. Antenna designed to be at the mast head in string winds is damaged ...
  2. Climate news

    Dog is a Disinformation Agent. Can't workout if it is by design or not.
  3. The Best Case for No Collusion

    Spoke to some Americans lately while traveling and without exception they said they were embarrassed to be American. Looks like Trump voters don't catch planes.
  4. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    It's a design failure, pure and simple. The NYT story has more holes in it than a St Kilda Junky. The SI's are clear that if indeed the AIS was broken, that Scally was in non-compliance. 27.11 The AIS shall remain powered on and transmitting at all times while Racing .

    It's a design failure, pure and simple.
  6. Climate news

    Yep, now it is absorbing it.
  7. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    I don't know what the fuck the CIA have against the Argies, they arm every other country. Let's give them some serious kit and see how crazy this shit can get!

    About the OP and the polarised US landscape generally. I was listening to a radio interview on the ABC of an American author with yet another book out. They asked him if there was anything different in book releases in Australia to the US. He said that while he was signing his books here, that people were genuinely discussing politics with him, that was refreshing because there was little genuine discussion in the US. Just two sides, each not wanting to listen to the other.
  9. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Reality TV is like that. Do you think that the modern race would still happen if it wasn't getting clicks on the net?
  10. The Best Case for No Collusion

    Ben, you are missing the point. Trump has not been colluding, he is being controlled. He is so fucking dumb that he had no chance against the Russian intelligentsia.
  11. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    England has an excellent track record of invasions. 21 of the 22 countries that have not been invaded by Britain
  12. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Im still backing the Argies. I'd like to see what happened if Argentina claimed the Shetlands.
  13. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Britain should fuck-off out of the Southern Hemisphere. We have more exocets and they still work. Go the Argies!
  14. Next VOR on IMOCAs?

    Yeah, I hear that they only like coal fired ships in the US.
