      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?

    In the days leading up to the jury decision you were posting smack like an immature little boy but when the decision was announced you suddenly became very busy with "meetings" As a sore loser you are the last person to be calling out others Well fuck me dead, I must have been watching a totally different race to the whole rest of the wide world, cos I coulda sworn that AR got beaten today. Not only that, I coulda sworn that they got beaten by a margin of nearly 2 minutes by a team that: 1. Ripped their sail and by their own admission did not sail optimally upwind. 2. Had a totally piss poor start, and 3. Clearly took the foot off the pedal for the last two legs. Did anyone else see that or was it just me? Its all very well to get up on your soapbox and say that AR did really well all things considered. Certainly they did better than I thought they might. However, to suggest they were remotely competitive even against a coasting LR is a bit like saying my 4 year old will take out the next Tour De France cos, well damn it he rides a two wheeler really well considering he is only 4! *yawn* get back to me when you have something based in reality rather than cognitive dissonance. Exactly. Here is how I saw the race: NO goes very aggressively across LR's bows at the start. CD says be my guest - I don't want to be anywhere near you thanks. LR sails around AR at first gybe and makes gains for the rest of the race bar one leg where they lose 8.6 seconds. Commentators cream themselves because margin is under 10 minutes. Spectators listen to commentators and consequently convince themselves they have seen a magnificent spectacle of close racing. This is typical of the whole approach to AR fiasco - act as if the team are the unwitting victims of events outside their control. I am wondering how they are going to convince themselves that the remaining three races are interesting. totally agree and i am a big fan of NO
