      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.

    Always go too far on a first date.
  1. News from SF Embarcadero...

    Will ask my old man (the white haired one at 52 secs !) if he did. He is from a sheep farm in NZ and not clued up on such matters. Bloody funny though. His old man (my grandfather) was in San Diego in '95 to represent one of TNZ's main sponsors (ENZA). Good omen. Booked my flights. Get there in 10 days ! BJL Did they get you to sign a model release? If not, and you don't want it up, just send YT a DMCA notice.
  2. News from SF Embarcadero...

    Awww shit. When my dad texted me last night saying he "got to say hello to the crew and got interviewed by local tv" I somehow knew it was for UnCut.... Oh dear.... BJL
  3. Artemis?

    Has TT confirmed yet that he will fund a team for AC35 and, therefore, all of the work they have put in (haters gotta hate....) are part of the wider AR plan ?? I'd like to see them in NZ. BJL
  4. Artemis?

    So TT would have shelled out $100m+ for what may be only 4 races? Whoa.... (Edit - and following that thinking LR may sail more than any of the challengers and have the smallest budget.)
  5. Artemis?

    IP taking about losing his best mate brings a tear to the eye. Even PC comes across well. JS needs a punch in the face. What a douche.
  6. Artemis?

    You can be sure that input from other interested parties will be sought to maximise future entrants. This will happen for AC35 regardless of the winner given the total f*** up this AC cycle has been. However, whoever wins will still get to write the rules and there will always be the incentive to skew the rules to the defender's strengths and relevant agenda (ETNZ included). I would ! Who wants to lose the AC?
  7. Artemis?

    I hear murmurings from mates working with the teams in SF that all is not well at Artemis. Watch for Artemis sailors and staff starting to trickle away quietly who are unhappy with direction and result of sailing and safety review. It may then become a torrent if someone of the quality of LP throws his hands up and leaves.
  8. Artemis?

    ^^ Re new video - is anyone else noticing all that, bar the Italians, most of videos are commentated by Kiwis? Last Artemis and Oracle cases in point...
