      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.

    Shrug, my identity is very public. How about you?

    So Ridethewinds, what exactly is your relationship to the VXone? All of your posts listed in your profile are in support of it, but you don't show that you own one......do you work for Bennet? Are you Bennet's sock puppet? A VXone dealer? It is fine if you are any or all of those things, I just find your lack of clarity on your conflicts-of-interest to be, maybe not quite the right word, but suspect. Tell us about yourself and your boats, maybe put it in your signature? This is by no means a shot at the VXone, because I quite like what I've seen about the boat.
  3. On-scene in San Francisco

    The online stores are crap too. Today I thought I would go buy some OR and ETNZ swag and I could not believe the limited selection of complete crap on the OR website... Yes, agree with that. I just met Comrade Stingray in Cow Hollow. He and I have had issues but, meeting F2F calls for cordiality and courtesy. He is the first I have seen fully decked-out in Oracle gear! [although he claims there are others if I look hard enough] It is VERY hard to know where to watch the races. It is a long way from the Marina Green to the AC Park (Pier 27) end. The AC Store at PIer 27 is absolute shit. No team stuff there. Just (I assume) ACEA stuff made to look like team gear. Poorly designed, printed on shit fabric and offered at outrageous prices. The best deal in there is the Program (at $15). It is a long walk from Pier 27 (the AC "park) to the TNZ/LR bases and even further to OR. It is obvious organisers just gave up on any "village" idea. This was one thing Ernesto did quite well. Having seen the "AC park" today (and noted the prices down there) tomorrow I might opt for the big screen at Marina Green. Stinger (who is clean-cut young guy) thinks he might take his binoculars and go up Telegraph Hill for the big-view. But he has a mobile device to get Virtual Eye etc. From my VLC experience (2007) I decided you have to be near a screen. Not for the commentary. But for the telemetry. Will look for a breakfast place and make a decision before Race 1. There is very little wind in SF at present and SR wonders if they will even get on their foils for Race 1. Few comments about SF. Today I walked miles and very much like the obvious height restraints in housing areas. Looks like the famous SF BOS said 4-storeys max. Makes for a kind of Parisian (or European) look. The Cow Hollow, Marina Districts and environs look pretty up-market. Not many street dwellers and many affluent looking citizens gulpng down tacos and starring at their cellphones. On the drive in from the airport the van driver continuously made phone calls. Have these people ever heard of distracted driving? If there is a lay-day (or racing is cancelled for no wind) I will be hitting any 2nd hand bookstores around here. And yes, if I see John Navas, I will give him special Maori greetings and a secret look at a taniwha.

    Great to hear the Vx is so nice, thanks for the excellent write up Jason!
  5. Thanks SloopJon! don't be lazy... read the damn thread. LOL, I am, several times daily, haven't seen a recent update as to his whereabouts. He's reportedly been out of jail for days now. No sightings since.
