      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. Floating, eh? Those much be seriously out of measurement.
  2. You reckon? Despite the fact that their headline sponsor has already confirmed "In"? Of course that doesn't fit your "we are all doomed" thesis.
  3. Delusions of grandeur. Sailors are the hired help.
  4. Yeah. I used to sail a low-rider Moth (badly, but still). I know quite a few Mothists. A giant Moth sounds cool to me. Hey Gaucho, stop being such a fuddy-duddy and get with the programme.
  5. "it is like chasing the tasty bits in a burley stream" WTF does that mean?
  6. Words are cheap. RC had plenty of them.
  7. Actually ETNZ had a mid-sized budget. Way more than Groupama, probably more than Softbank.
  8. Thanks that is interesting. Are you able to estimate how much ACEA got for selling UK rights to BT Sport?
  9. Who or what is MI?
  10. Call me old-fashioned but I'm holding off on the outrage until we have some actual facts.
  11. That isn't much of a difference. A two boat team will know precisely the speed differences between their two boats.
  12. Everything except the money.
  13. I'm not sure the single minded focus it takes to get to the top in a sport tends to make for a well-rounded human being. BA's book is exquisitely dull. But the Ainslie quote about making him angry is a comment he made against himself, at least it indicates some humour and self-awareness. As for Spithill, some claim to detect humour but I just see the kind of kid at school who laughs as he torments a weaker child. No I won't be buying his auto-bio.
  14. You don't want to make him angry. It is known.
