      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.

    And they also both have big tall poles sitting on their decks. STFW

    Have you no shame Doug? Putting yourself in the same class as real world yacht designers? Come on. You can not show a minute of your Fire Arrow in sustained foiling mode. You won't show up to race any of your innovations even when you are offered $1000 and more to do so. You haven't even sailed one of your boats for at least two years. Living in your own head isn't living. Posting on the internet isn't the real world. Move out of the basement, prove yourself in the real world and then post something. Until then STFU. Oh, and the photos of the full size boats you say you designed over 30 years ago that you posted on the toy boat forum, those boats are ugly as shit...

    The clock is ticking, show us video of YOUR boat foiling or STFU!

    And when and for how long did your lawn ornament last sail? Last I checked, you can't call it a boat if it isn't in the water.

    Dougie here is your chance to prove us all wrong. Since you claim you have a foiling tri in Florida, please post a video, taken anytime in the last six months showing your boat foiling for one minute or more. No stills, no video from two years ago, no crayon drawings (I assume you aren't allowed pointy objects where you currently reside). A simple recent video of your boat showing sustained foiling and I will start the ball rolling and proclaim you a visionary here and anywhere else you like.

    You know Dougie, if I post a still picture of my cat jumping off the sofa, that really isn't proof that he can fly. Or is it on your planet?

    I've been dealing with Doug for over twenty years now from his days when he was getting banned from r/c sailng forums. Fact is he derives his entire self worth from his internet postings and the underlying reasons for all his posts is to try and validate what from all indications is a very small life,. Notice how he claims that his ideas, designs or boats are at the heart of a technological revolution. Notice how he is incapable of dealing rationally with anyone who suggests that his theories are unworkable or wrong. Notice how he tries to drag others into his fantasy designs or plans that never reach fruition in the real world. It is all part of the same, sad pattern of a man desperately trying to validate himself. Unfirtunately for the rest of us this means he is also incapable of engaging in rational, reasonable reasoned discussions. Further, it means he will never go away for his posting is his being. I have found after all these years there are only a few ways to deal with Doug. First, is to not engage. This is the first rule you are given when dealing with a disturbed personality. Ignore them. If no one responds to Doug's posts, he will eventually move on to another website. Second, if you really want to say something, respond only with humor or even ridicule. For example, make fun of his stupid names and graphics. Suggest that he needs to move out of his basement room, Put up a clock showing how many days since one of his boats sailed. He has no sense of humor whatsoever and his responses will usually be so hate filled that he is likely to be banned. Third, and finally, challenge him to put his money where his mouth is. For twenty years I've offered to race his creations at stakes as high as $10,000. I've offered to pay his airfare to attend races and demonstrate his work. Doug Lord has never agreed and has never appeared. I'll end by following my own advice--Hey Dougie, Pizza Boy, there is a $1000 on the table to get you to race your lawn ornament. Wanna bet you stay in the basement? Yes, it's a revolution, and you are not a part of it....

    I'll add another $500 to the above 50 yard w/l FA challenge. Winner take all? And Dougie, you still haven't answered the simple question I posed a while back--In the last 24 months, how many hours have YOU spent successfully foiling either full size or r/c? Or how about this even simpler question--name any regional, national or international race won by any boat at any time designed by you? How about a part designed by you?
  9. Trimaran Foiling Systems

    Two simple questions Dougie-- 1. Over the last eighteen months how many hours have you spent foiling either full scale or toy boats? 2. Over the same period how many hours have you spent posting about foiling either full scale or toy boats?
  10. Doug Lord to get his own Anarchy

    Dougie has been doing the same act for close to twenty years now. First it was toy boats with what he called a working spinaker, then it was canting keels, then other forms of moving ballast and then foils. Always posting endless math that doesn't add up, still pictures that never really prove his point and lots of shots of other people's boats. And then there is the constant "Jane you ignorant slut" insult fights with everyone. Yes, please, please please give him his own forum to say whatever he wants so long as he is banned from posting anywhere else. It would be the best start to 2017 ever!!!!

    Dear Team Maserati--All your base are belong to us. Sincerly, Doug Lord (genius)

    Ugly? Have you read Doug Lord's posts? His regular attacks? Do you realize how many years he has been trolling and fucking up sailing forums? How many people he has burned by sucking them into his delusions? Have you seen his pictures? After years of trying to be rational, I've come to the conclusion that the only way to deal with the a-hole is ridicule. And this is "Sailing Anarchy" last I checked....
  13. Radio Control Multihulls

    In thinking a little more about why Doug Lord can't find a single person to assist in his revolutionary efforts, I remembered a recent picture of his lordship and wondered if perhaps dougie's problem is olfactory. Which lead me to wonder what in fact Doug Lord actually smells like. At first I thought it was simply "ass". Now I'm thinking a combination of sweat, ben gay, and failure. Anyone else care to speculate?
  14. Radio Control Multihulls

    Come on everybody.....Doug Lord needs a boat buddy....someone to share his love of stained, sweaty t-shirts, ratty beards, Internet trolling and not sailing....Won't anyone volunteer to be his new assistant? Please, this is your chance to give us all a full report on Doug's living and working conditions. I've got money on it that he still lives in his mom's basement....

    From the "you can't make this shit up" department, it seems that over on the toy boat forums where Dougie also posts, he claims based on his "testing" ( read " drifting") of his catamaran, he is modifying his foils and rig. Shocking! Even better he is asking for a volunteer to help him launch his boats sometime later in the year because his football coach assistant is gone and the weather is too hot. Again, shocked to think that this means Doug Lord has no friends! Perhaps we could organize an SA group trip to Florida to help him out and learn at the feet of the master. I'm sure a few of the current AC designers would love to learn the secret of the " bat foil"...
