      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. Secret Weapons?

    ETNZ missed the Batman opportunity with the naming of their crew: B - Burling A - Ashby T - Tuke M - Maloney A - ? N - ?
  2. internet connections in China

    Wifi is everywhere in China. Prob didn't have a VPN (such as ExpressVPN) app on his phone, hence no Facebook updates.
  3. The official TDF 2016 thread

    If anyone wants to do an amateur version after being inspired to go ride by the efforts of the TdF riders the past few weeks, highly recommend the Haute Route. http://www.hauteroute.org Run by OC Sport (who you should know from the Extreme Sailing Series). I did the Haute Route Alps in 2014. 20 climbs which include Alpe d'Huez, Gladon, Colombiere, and Ventoux as a couple of the well known ones. This year doing the Haute Route Dolomites. Should be fun.
  4. 2016 moth worlds: Hayama

    So by my calc's Australia lost the ashes. The soul searching commences...
  5. ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    Agree on M2 costs. I sailed them for 5 years and had 4 boats in total. Had a break due to kids. Won't get back in at those prices, out of control.
  6. http://www.sarawakreport.org/ http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10130211234592774869404581083700187014570 Malaysia is just crazy politically at present. These 2 sites have details on how the PM Najib had transferred MYR2.6bn (~US$700m) into his personal account as a political donation. There are all sorts of scandals and stupidity going on in Malaysia, so another political mess is business as usual. So not surprised they created another one out of nothing.
  7. Artemis?

    Is it telling that the link says "pig" in the address?
  8. Artemis?

    I still don't know why they load tested the boat (without wing) just before officially launching and sailing since it has been sitting around in the shed since August. I am sure they have had plenty of opportunities to do the test in the past month/weeks to ensure that all is ok and ready to go.
  9. Artemis?

    I like the color. Interesting boards... I suppose they articulate such that they stay w/in max beam... Can hardly wait to see them sailing the beast. The tips No t-foils on the rudder?
  10. Artemis?

  12. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    Absolutely. It isn't a cheap club, but 2 owners of Yuuzoo run a business with the same name from Singapore. Single membership is as follows: Membership closed as ONE°15 achieves target of 3,850 members on 27 December 2007. The remaining memberships available will be “by invitation of the Chairman” only. The Club’s prevailing entrance fee for individual (transferable) membership is at $60,888.

    It is high priority for everyone. You will hear it here on SA first!
  14. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    Is here right now at one degree 15 marina on Sentosa. Also same place as Yuuzoo if that is still here. Their program (ie Yuuzoo) has gone awfully silent.
