      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. opti's (sic) rule

    The comments from an Opti parent on the front page http://sailinganarchy.com/2018/01/30/optis-rule/ fill me with horror. An arms race in hulls, rigs and sails on a pram dinghy sailed by 10 year olds? Aren't we trying to produce good sailors rather than over-entitled rich brats? How about turning up at an event with a boat, pooling the entries and being allocated a hull and mast by lot for each race, but getting to use your own sail? No arms race, no buying results, just results by ability.

    Not in the civilised world, it's not.

    Mr Shapiro has now sold Nora so that's the end of that.
