      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. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Agreed: bring on the Torch !
  2. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    For all those ILSA members that don't agree with the Response : set a Torch to it !
  3. Artemis?

    The difference between 20 and 23 knots TWS, measured at a designated height no doubt, what about temperature, wind sheer, time above limit etc WTF ....
  4. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    IC Nutter : Your undestanding is not correct.
  5. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    IPLore: Kirby built Torch = Laser per CM.
  6. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Wess : if ILCA came up with a class ratified proposal to build Kirby designed lasers in accordance to a build / engineering specification of say Gurit, and Gurit had terms that as per an agreement to be payed a fee for each moulding, pursuant to build specification. Would you have an issue with ILCA paying the moulding fee on each boat built in accordance with the Gurit building specification and ILCA / Gurit agreement ?
  7. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Are there any photographs out there of the ISAF Laser plaques with Kirby's name removed ?
  8. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    BB : near the mark mate, only how does one reverse engineer a "secret specification", in this case the Construction Manual ? Perhaps there are ways to measure the unknown, ILCA seem to have the ability, simply put it to a vote.
  9. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    ojfd : in any of the documents you have is there mention of who conducts / is responsible for compliance to Construction Manual ?
  10. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Maybe I am incredibly dense : but What is more than 20 years ? And what is the logic behind the Laser is not a book ?
  11. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    ojfd : Are you sure it is ISAF and ILCA that approve builders not Kirby ? They may validate the build of the Laser for compliance, the licience arrangement to build pursuant to the Construction Manual is most certainly Kirby's domain ~ approval.
  12. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Yes you are correct, was trying to edit post but would not allow, only delete. You beat me to make the alteration, thanks.
  13. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    No : some hull geometry ( and appendages) can become the subject of patent application.
  14. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    I think someone (ICLA / ISAF) have eaten the cake ! They now have to work (pay) it-off.
  15. Lasers - Applying a Blow Torch

    Can't correct the weird alterations above relating to ( and © Yes my error on the decimal point Dogwatch. Have all these above considerations as per ISAF Guidelines been met ?
