      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. Slightly Obscure But Very Helpful

    When trying to figure when to gybe into the bottom mark, wait until the butt end of the windex is pointing at the mark. This will put you roughly on the same angle on the other gybe. Allow for tide if needed.
  2. Getting banned for attending a Prohibited event

    Hey doggy, are you a lawyer by chance. Btw just note no lawyers admit to being a lawyer on the internet.

    Whoa man, you didn't give us the whole story. You're not really a lazy piece of shit but an old broken piece of shit like the rest of us. Fuck yeah, if your shit is hurtin, roll that jib out and leave the engine ticking over and go sailing. Beats lying on the couch.
  5. You could post a thing on crew.org. But the only people to see it would be the 6 guys who use it as a personal messenger service.

    I find it disappointing that sportsmen and sportswomen of all disciplines aren't allowed to be themselves any more. They can't show any emotion or character as they might get burnt at the stake. I like to see guys and chicks whose personality shines so I can actually get attached to a crew or team so I will follow an event. Anyone who thinks sponsors don't want people following their team is insane. The volvo has followed sports like NASCAR where all the drivers and cars look the same and nobody says anything out of turn in case it may possibly offend someone or embarrass a potential sponsor. How much more enjoyable would sports be if the participants acted a bit more realistically so we could actually identify with them, after a bad run get out of a car and kick the door in, after a bad sked stomp around the boat swearing at seagulls, after scoring a point run around yelling "in your face motherfuckers". if sponsors realised that people in internet and tv land would likely see this behaviour and remember it, then look out for that team to see if the dude with the Mohawk looses his shit again, or the winning girl runs up to the ref and kisses them again, or whatever these characters do, sports would be fun to watch again.

    Holy shit, if any of you heard what is said on our (mixed) crew racing nights you'd throw us all in jail. Harden the fuck up.
  11. Anybody Know The History Of This Farr 39ML?
