      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. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    hopefully the judge throws his ass in jail for a bit. I've seen this picture before, on my river, with three dead people as the consequence. There are just a few inches between luck and death when you hit something at that speed, and if a guy does it once, he'll do it again.
  2. Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Why don't you arrange to have one nearby the hotel? I'll finally get to do a proper video review, if so... Or in Miami between the 27th and the 30th...
  3. Shithole Countries

    You should look into the paperwork requirements. You might find that 90% of it comes as the consequence of the out of control personal injury law system and class actions rather than 'the man'.
  4. I'm making a rudder

    No comment on the rudders. I like your fonts though. what is the left one called?
  5. Design for the future in Auckland, or just more [above-the-]water vapor?
  6. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Yep. That's all that was on it, including the sd card. Maybe they didn't even turn it on until they were on the warship
  7. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    New generations of offshore boats get faster and more protected from the front, because they are faster. When the VO65 was designed, the protective aspects were touted for being that much safer than the VO70. The VO65 is now an old boat though, and it ain't just the coachroof that gives it away

  9. Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing OBR Matt Knighton and I are launching a video podcast/TV show this week that highlights the best OBR work from each leg, and gives out an award to each OBR. If you really liked someone's work, post it here and it will get a better chance of being featured on the show. Feel free to link to FB, Insta, YT, the Google Doc video log, or the VOR raw page, and thanks.
  10. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    What a silly way to say 'underpowered'
  11. Drug Prohibition: Still Stupid

    It's like Trump has a list that says 'things guaranteed to get every young person and minority out to vote in November' and he is going down the list. What's next...A 'no dancing' law?
  12. Drug Prohibition: Still Stupid

    My understanding was that a lot of the hype around israeli med research had to do with marketing, but that's a compelling article. As a medical card holder and licensed grower in a state that is almost 100% sure to pass recreational in November, this whole thing is getting really interesting right about now.
  13. would you sack mark richards ?

    Stan says yes.
  14. http://www.theherald.com.au/story/5062616/high-seize-hunter-musicians-charged-over-245-million-cocaine-bust-on-lake-macquarie/ who knows the boat or the guys?
  15. justice

    his login ain't just a nickname!
  16. Drug Prohibition: Still Stupid

    Not a lot of it going on in israel either. Canada is starting to rev up though. As usual when it comes to something that bible thumpers can get angry about, we are way behind the times. Fascinating that even educated folks don't know the sketchy, racist, nasty history of marijuana prohibition. Or the sugar industry's killing millions by paying off government scientists. Or...
  17. would you sack mark richards ?

    it does to me!
  18. would you sack mark richards ?

    Wimbledon? Lol.
  19. would you sack mark richards ?

    Anyone here who has sailed with the young cooney...is she any good (at sailing)?
  20. Drug Prohibition: Still Stupid

    There's that old myth that 'the market will solve it' regardless of the bullshit politicians who do their best to sabotage solutions.
  21. Jerusalem

    Easy to ignore history when it's just 'those damned jews who own everything anyway'. If you haven't been to Israel, most of you should just shut up. Reality is about as far from the shit you are fed as it could be.
  22. Teams?

    Larry, Ernie holding hands and singing Kumbaya, perhaps? The same Larry who wouldn't even spend any money on the TV package for the last America's Cup?
  23. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    My bad then. Thought it was a submitted photo
  24. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Nope. Riou's shot from deck of Brunel. See wake.
