      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.

    I'm no lawyer at all. But how can applying written content to real life infringe on any copyright laws? By that logic, home chefs that follow a recipe in the Joy of Cooking owe a royalty. Doctors that get paid for the application of knowledge gleaned from Gray's Anatomy (the book, not the show you troglodytes) are infringing. What is ISAF's rationale for claiming copyright protection?
  2. Why is ISAF not cancelling any sanction or participation in Malaysia

    Be careful about throwing stones. The policy statements of one politician shouldn't be representative of a whole society (thankfully!). What frightens me is the US citiezenry's substantial support of a politician that wants to impose the same ban curently being eviscerated. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/poll-trumps-muslim-ban-widely-supported-among-republicans/article/2577987 Does anyone think US Sailing would be able to overcome this (hypothetical) upswell if taken to its natural conclusion? Im no fan of ISAF, but I think we all need to recognize the complexities of international diplomacy.
