      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. From their site: "No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage than does the start on Sydney Harbour." What a joke.
  2. Course map from S.I. showing Sow and Pig reef in relation to the race course:

  4. It would appear as if Airbus is already supplying foils to Emirates: One of Emirates' latest Airbus A380s arriving overhead Auckland this afternoon. A6-EEV was delivered to Emirates earlier this year and arrived in Dubai just two months ago on 26 May 2014.
  5. They already do have the automated data: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_Communication_Addressing_and_Reporting_System I'd say Malaysian Airlines already knows exactly what happened. Air France came out with that data two days after the crash of their flight in 2009. "An Air France spokesperson stated on 3 June that "the aircraft sent a series of electronic messages over a three-minute period, which represented about a minute of information. " These messages, sent from an onboard monitoring system via the Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), were made public on 4 June 2009. The transcripts indicate that between 02:10 UTC and 02:14 UTC, 6 failure reports (FLR) and 19 warnings (WRN) were transmitted The messages resulted from equipment failure data, captured by a built-in system for testing and reporting, and cockpit warnings also posted to ACARS. The failures and warnings in the 4 minutes of transmission concerned navigation, auto-flight, flight controls and cabin air-conditioning (codes beginning with 34, 22, 27 and 21, respectively)."
  6. By the sounds of things it might pay to cc Graeme Wheeler to sign off on the foreign exchange.
  7. Haha good one.
