      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. Artemis?

    The video interview is in the first link as well, about halfway down in the article. What a perfect gentleman, Loick, and brilliant! God I love the French... Did I just say that?

    Well said Danno. We should expect that the teams will take all necessary precautions to make another loss of this kind much less likely. We, who love this sport for its beauty and serenity, should demand it. We all know that the amazing peace that our sport gives us is counterbalanced by the immense forces at work. Mother Ocean and the huge forces required to compete on her turf are always there in the background. She tolerates us to an extent.... When we push the limits (as we must) we are reminded of our human limitations. But we must press on....with the knowledge of our most recent failings. Fair winds Andrew. Your loss will not be forgotten. I am so sorry for you and your family.

    I do not want to start another bushfire. But the above is a false dichotomy. There is nothing more practical than a good theory. No dichotomy at all. Not either/or. A matter of emphasis. They complement each other nicely, Schnacks and JuanK! Edit: Hastings I know that Kiwis are eminently practical (so no offense intended there), but Schnacks has considerable talents in the theoretical....

    Schnacks and JuanK... The theoretical and the practical. Quite a combo. We'll see!!!
