      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. ?? Rich Bastard ??
  2. And yet you found GD's "that will be Russell" joke disrespectful, not funny, not necessary...........
  3. Thanks Weta. I sent him a note today.
  4. Yes please Weta.
  5. I disagree completely with the theory of not wanting a participant in the next AC because of their previous involvement or historical approach to challenging or defending The AC needs all the participants and teams it can get its hands on, Oracle, Soft Oracle and Alinghi included. AC36 will be a much better event with returning teams of high standard who have a chance of winning the cup. That is what a true sporting competition is all about. I just hope none of them actually do win it
  6. Thread. Over.
  7. So The Cup will hold much more appeal once RNZYS hold it for the upcoming 150 years?
  8. Exactly. There must be a link to that interview somewhere as a simple reminder of why Dalts doesn't care how Jimmys feeling.
  9. I will never tire of that. Shame that most newbs don't
  10. Couple of Skippers floating around with nothing to do and nothing on the horizon
  11. Perhaps Pete needs to "harden up" a little
  12. I disagree that its none. Sure on land it would be none. But once the foil is in the water it is generating lift. Therefore it must take some hydro to get the foil down to its max depth in the water while underway?
  13. Good question considering they never had, nor have, nor having , nor have had, or even having had a regatta or boat or club house or members. Foiling Punts perhaps?
  14. I would hope that CNEV won it from him next time
