      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. I heard there was a situation with Grand Illusion in Long Beach last weekend. Anyone got the details?
  2. do the math

    That's a couple minutes I will never get back
  3. Chicago-Mac/Meridian X MOB Recovery

    It would be really interesting to hear the same type of step by step description from the crew on the boat. Who did what, when and how? It sounds like they were able to get back in relatively short-order given the conditions. And they got back to the right place. So far, all we have heard was that they saw his light and heard the sounds when the engine was turned off. MOB button? MOM deployed? I am sure there is a lot more to their story.
  4. Best laptop for use on a sailboat is?

    One that's waterproof Either that or don't keep it near the companionway.
  5. RIP Doug Peterson

    On the last day of the AC, Doug Peterson passed away this morning. He's been more than a little involved in the Cup however the past years have been a struggle healthwise. More of a blessing at this stage. He was a giant!
  6. 2017 YACHTING CUP - Where's the LOVE

    Racing a Schock against DC. Should be fun and it's predicted to BLOW! I wonder if the IACC boat is up to the task. PH1 looks pretty interesting with lots of speedy boats except the Ed. Is he afraid of racing in a real regatta? Also, it's his home YC's regatta for chrissake!
  7. Is it too early?

    Looking like a good year to come back on the toll road!
  8. how to ruin racing, part 2

    I think jguy got It right when he said the ed called someone a cunt. For some reason that word is nuclear. It looks like ed deleted that post but it's still there in a quoted reply so there must be something he didn't want us to see Plus, in the prior thread jguy correctly said the ed was expelled from SWYC. That was the day before ed got the letter he posted. Jguy must know something
