      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. USA fails to qualify for the World Cup

    Because the kids in those countries aren't playing Xbox 5 hours a day!
  2. More, from Pennsyltucky.

    clearly she dyes her hair, closer inspection shows hints of red at the roots...
  3. Crosswind A380

    the whip effect in the back of the bus must have been intense! given the length of that beast, those folks were moving side to side hundreds of feet in seconds...
  4. A Moment of Respectful Silence...

    Hate to go conspiracy on this, but think there's more to this story than the msm is reporting. keep your eye's / ears open and do your research, starting to smell fishy.
  5. Snipe jib help

    If you don't have a mast ram you should at least make some blocks to keep the mast at neutral. Most important is a block behind the mast that maintains some positive prebend . ( say an inch or two at the spreaders) if you're in a good breeze and running, the rig can invert without being blocked or rammed forward. Enjoy your snipe! Great boat great people.
  6. Bowman and start line distance calling issues

    Get a prostart.
  7. Asymmetric spinnaker vs poled out jib

    many boats do it, notably stars, snipes, lasers to name a few...
  8. CryptoCurrency

    thanks for salting the wounds JT. your right though, should have just held the bitcoin. I'm basically even right now in the Stratus.

    they should be sending in military right now!! the island will loose control quickly without power.
  10. Maria

    JFC, StC is going to get blasted. so sad... they may not be taking the direct hit but they're taking the N quad w huge surge. Total devastation.
  11. Dreadlocks needs a new home

    There's a sailing foundation here in Cleveland with two T10's now. I shot the director an email on Dred. hopefully they can grab and save her from the glue factory...
  12. Maria

    All the boats that rolled south before Irma are gonna get their shot on this one.
  13. Maria

    she's spooling up! not looking good...
  14. J70, cheating and pros

    I would make a strong assumption that any owner of a J70 who sails at any regional, national or international event knows of what just went down. Give that, one would have to assume that any work/modification to their boat would be in full purview of said owner.
  15. J70, cheating and pros

    to me OD means same tag on the main and no clock... done
