      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. Plenty of talk about regattas around NZ to give all of the country a taste of cup action. I remember Wellington having a IACC regatta back in the late 90's something like that. Dubai would be in the mix too obviously.
  2. Anyone have the full cup tour dates? Only seen the ones down in Otago.
  3. Looks like the 35th Cup was the flintstone generation after all.
  4. The America's Cup has and will always be about winning the America's Cup. Anyone trying to make TV money and such would be highly disappointed (Larry/Coutts)
  5. Just saw a glimpse of the flotilla out off viaduct harbour amazing. Sir Peter Blakes Seamaster has just joined them.
  6. Trust me everyone knows Stuff commenters are the lowest of the low and have no joy but in making cruel vile comments sad buggers!

  8. https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/other-sports/94157027 Team New Zealand did not get paid this month the cash had run dry. Now they are selling gear off to pay the crew.
  9. Conner was on the news hear late last week about backing the kiwis and sailing in Auckland again. He has a house there too.
  10. If Auckland don't cough up the $$$ the cup will go to Wellington.
