      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.

    alternative facts are so useful, but don't you find it strange that the three branches of government can't seem to get rid of something that is so obviously illegal. Why do you think?

    Boy I sure hope you don't live in one of the states that's receiving welfare just by existing. In other words, the 40 states above California on this graph that get more than a dollar for each dollar they contribute to the federal budget. Is your state a welfare state? Come up with a plan that gets those fucking leeching states off the public dole and we're all 100% on board.
  3. Latest goss from the docks of the EXSS is that while no decision has been reached, momentum is building inside the ETNZ camp towards something with a lot less lead than anyone's ever seen in a big boat. Maybe a whole lot less.

    SMP, zero sugar, and yoga. and congrats on the coming rugrats. you'll get there.

    be careful SS: your 'pure' conjecture has a lot of background, and there is a damned good chance there will be emails coming out showing some complicity between VOR and Akzo on this thing. Question for you: If you found out that Turner, after Simeon had finalized his contract with Akzo, had gone to Akzo and told them they were spending too much on the sailing team and should renegotiate so they could spend more on activation, and that was one of the reasons this thing turned into a furball: would you think that inappropriate or otherwise problematic or would you continue to stand by the organizer?

    Miffy you clearly should be a lawyer

    Sunset & Vine are doing the distribution, not the production. If you have issues with this go around, the guy to blame is longtime producer/director Leon Sefton and his in-house VOR media team. If you love what they do, let him know 'cause I think he is going to need the love.
  8. Extreme Sailing Series in San Diego

    live broadcast is saturday and sunday on the ESS website and probably facebook pages. I'm hosting, match racer and funny dude Nate Hollerbach is analyst, and we have pretty good chemistry so I expect it to be pretty entertaining for anyone watching.

    Venn diagrams for you!

    I thought small businesses and the self-employed were the backbone of this country. Is that no longer true?

    you ain't traveled much? And what happened to this insanely high tax rate I keep hearing about here in America?
  12. NZ Coastal Classic 2017

    she's Phaedo 3, an improved MOD70, which racked up about three dozen major and minor records over the past few years and won overall honors in most of the races she competed in. In anything but ultralight weather, she destroys any ORMA...if the crew is up to snuff and filled with people who know big multis. Otherwise, she breaks or flips!

  14. il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    I think they've got it. They left at 17:39:57 (I'm assuming Chicago time) which means they need to cross the line by 13:29:57 CT/14:29:57 ET. And they're just a few minutes out. Crushing an amazing 60 foot open AC catamaran's record in a decade old V70 full of Midwestern crew. I'm digging it.

    I remember an old NYT journalist telling me once "When you see a headline that is a question, you can just answer 'NO' to yourself and move on. If it was news, it wouldn't be a question!
