      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. Ask Grant. The Clean-up innerview

    Ask him if he sees an opportunity to get an American team to Auckland? Besides Larry doesn't he see this as important given the history?
  2. What was your favorite race/moment?

    Without a doubt the balls to the wall action in the 3 boat length circle port starboard with Artemis & ETNZ in the RR absolutely blew my mind. 2 reasons. First of all Nathan Outeridge has known for sometime what it takes to beat Burling, and you could see the intensity in how he was sailing and how he did not flinch going into that situation. He sailed it perfectly, and team nz was given a slight gift in the penalty. Secondly, what we did not see in the regatta is a major injury, if Nathan had cut that a 1/4 BL closer the boats would have hit, we would have seen blood and severe injuries. BAR showed us that when the boats hit, the bodies on board have no protection, nothing to keep hands, feet and heads from making contact with other boats, I know this sounds a little unreal but it is really a miracle we didn't see any injuries from the contact. To me this showed what we were watching.
