      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. Chicago Mac Race

    Having sailed on a OD 48 for a few seasons (48007), I remember it being like a big Star boat. Huge main, great backstay adjustments, the wheel drove like a tiller. Very sad to hear this news, happy to hear the crew is safe. ID

    Boy is that the truth! I wonder how many crew didn't pack warmer clothes, as it looks like they had some chilly times so far.

    All the best to my friends and all in this years' Mac race. One of the two rods in my lower back (surgery in June '10- Ike and Rich waited for 8 hours til' I got out of surgery- awesome!)- well I just found out that the right rod is broken in half- fuckin' titanium!!! Lawsuit?? I went out cruising a couple of times but I really miss racing. Cheers and God speed to all. I'll be thinking of you. ID p.s. As my daughter says, "Dad, you've done 30 of them, and 8 Bayview Macs, take a break!!" Smart young lady!
