      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.

    Wellington will shake and slide into the tide of its own accord at some point - no human assistance required...

    Definitely your compulsory Goff gift whining and spending all your cash on the trip home...
  3. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Maybe we should all just move to Italy?

    If you do, there's a mandatory gift you must take away again - your very own Goff!

    The bridge is at the end of its design life, so I'm sure we will be ok because of the second crossing that has been built ... um... is planned ... um ... has solid options on the table ... um ... ah, fuck... she'll be right!
  6. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Yeah, within reason. It's currently a 30-40min trip from most parts of Auckland to the airport. It'll be much longer via rail, with bags etc. So for the foreseeable future I'd still drive. But... The time will come when rail is necessary. The access corridors need to be at least provided for and secured now. We don't do thinking ahead and planning well here.
  7. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Auckland is decentralised and the proposed light rail link would only work for a %age of visitors and residents, while causing major traffic disruption. There is existing rail to Onehunga (my preferred location for AC36 challenger bases) and Manukau. Creating a loop via the airport via these points would be mire sensible than what's proposed. But I'd prefer a new downtown/waterfront development...

    Here's how this cycle will go: Win AC35. [done] Name Auckland as AC36 venue [done] Auckland Council ineptitude [in progress] Central Government intervention [pending] Public outcry over cost for a "rich man's sport" [just starting] Media beat ups/sensational headlines over costs [just started] ETNZ has to publically defend themselves for not contributing $ to venue construction [pending] New facilities built, somehow, despite best efforts of Auckland Council, media, and public protest. [2019/2020] Media starts covering AC36 [2021] Mass NZ support for ETNZ despite previous massive outcry against costs, venue etc. [2021] ETNZ defend AC36 [2021] Crowds enjoy fantastic new facilities, cost never mentioned again [pending]

    The matte finish was to compliment and highlight the lack of gloss of the entire boat design? 8)

    It has a fat arse and needs a bit of a diet to resolve... 8)

    Oh, great - this has made international news. I was hoping that our PM's lack of substance wouldn't become common knowledge quite so quickly...

    Did you just assume the sailing persons' gender?
