      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. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Yeah, I thought that was really cool. There was everything alongside them from tinnies to VIP wagons and it just felt like they were digging it, and sharing the love with whoever was out there. We hung with them for a few minutes before heading over to see Steinlager 2, then watched the dock in.
  2. AC36 - The Venue

    From the above RG article - beautifully put in my opinion "In the current exercise, the point seems to be overlooked that America’s Cup is a sailing regatta sailed and won on the water. It is not a town planning exercise at the end of which a regatta is held to celebrate the creation of a new piece of host city infrastructure"
  3. AC36 - The Venue

    Are you sure that’s the same Emma Gibbs? Somehow I doubt Alan and Jenny’s daughter was working as a copper...
  4. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Not cool - 257 people died that day....
  5. Best Rock Song Intros

    “And then, one night at The Social Club, Mary didn’t show up......”
  6. Reymarine ST60 Multi instrument.

    You've installed them sideways. Turn them 90 degrees clockwise and they'll work perfectly
  7. Oracle Team USA

    Yeah, I'm fucked if I know how we managed all those years until the RBYAC turned up......
  8. Oracle Team USA

    Yeah, I think Simon was putting up all the Team NZ banners in Bermuda that Oracle were taking down! I suspect they'll just have a few beers and laugh about it all.
  9. AC36 - The Venue

    Yep - that would be my preference too. Close to existing bars and public facilities, easy access - and a good catalyst to get rid of the imported cars from such a prime spot. Just needs those fuckers from Ports of Auckland to let go of some of their precious real estate (which we all actually own)......
  10. Dead fucking right. Happy fucking birthday you legend.
  11. What was your favorite race/moment?

    It would be amazing if someone more technically inclined than I am could put these into a small "awesome moments" vid package.......
  12. What was your favorite race/moment?

    This. I smile every time I think about it. At that point, I knew we had them.
  13. The Presser

    Yeah - great to watch again and for all the people who say Grant shouldn't call him out - this guy earned every bit of shit that railed down on him after the last four years of his behaviour. Up until he won in 2013, good on him. He was a nasty fuck after that
  14. Team NZ

    They got paid. Read the article.
  15. Team NZ

    Fucking A he is a legend - on many levels.
