      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.

    Hmmmmm.... Mom has slipped into Stealth Mode. Is this because he is doing something fiendishly cunning, or is he just trying to make us worried? Check back in 24 hrs for the answer!

    01:00 rankings. The western group is now pointing in the right direction and could run down Walkaround and Ozzy fairly quickly.

    Damn!, this time yesterday I was slightly south of Your Mom, now I'm 2.5hrs north of him...... I guess that is what comes of an enjoyable Friday night's drinking followed by a Saturday hike with the wife. Worth the loss.

    Thank you very much, sir. Most decent. Here is something to help you, a screen shot taken at about 02:30UTC, only the western gang in my list. EDIT - this does not include Rule69 and Hike Bitches who are scrapping it out to the NE of FdN, Walkaround and Ozzy who are tacking through the Gulf of Guinea and Cambodunum who is in Stealth mode EDIT 2 - Wing it and shockwave are also missing - they are locked together about 15Nm to the west of Vibroman.

    Hello, 01:00UTC rankings. Walkaround is on a hideous angle heading 233 at 60°TWA. It could be a loooooooong beat for him and Ozzy. The western gang continue the reach south with a bit of jostling for position. The critical thing is the positioning of the high to the south-east of our current position. If remains stationary then the western guys should reap their reward, if the high shifts further east, then the easterners will be looking good.

    Hello. Here are the 00:00UTC rankings. I was starting to feel quite happy about being the easternmost of the western pack, but now I'm starting to have doubts. I'm praying for the timing of the next low to be faster than expected!

    Why is this in Ocean Racing? Is the AC going to be decided on a Trans Atlantic course?

    Hello, here are two screen shots (Thanks GrandBentOn). A bit of a faf, so please don't expect them very often from me. These ones were taken about 18:00UTC, I am afraid I haven't got everyone in the A Group, but I've got most of you.
