      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. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Listening to the Today programme on Radio4 in the U.K. and they do a piece on the VG. This is big deal as its the biggest talk radio breakfast show in the country. Ellen McArthur comes on to talk about how she got 2nd and sort of made the interview all about herself rather than Alex, and then when she's steered back on subject Ellen tells us that AT negated the foil damage by carrying and fitting a spare. FOR FUCKS SAKE. How dare she repeat this nonsense. If you are going to represent our sport to the masses at least have the good grace to get your facts right.
  2. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Latest onboard video from Alex explains he has play in the steering which is taking all his attention. Worried about involuntary gybe. Also talk of his AIS problems, indicating that he has a fix which he will try to apply this afternoon.

    Thats not a dagger board. It's a centre board.
  4. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    Go go go Further to earlier postings, can now report Ileostomy reversed, gradual return to normal offensive behaviour and perhaps a small race this weekend. Fair winds and good outcomes to all with their own variations on this awful theme. moonriver I was mooching around on SA when I recognised Moonriver from this post as one of my fellow sailors at Sussex Yacht Club. Lump in throat as I have to report that a few months after his last posting Moonriver left our race course forever. Mrs Moonriver is however living life to the full and is currently taking their boat, Moonriver, around Britain with the Old Gaffers.
