      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.

Ed,

What was the breeze when we saw that picture of you hurling off the ass end? Sure looked like less than 25-30. I have no problem with owners who don't want to put a half season's wear on their mains in one day. My guess is that they have enough merit badges to not care what you think.

hey any time you two pussies wanna meet up on the race course, just let me know. like i've said about a million times, i am not interested in supporting the noods and i'm not wasting my time to go over it with dummies like you.

 

i've sailed every regatta in almost every condition in the tiger but isn't it amusing when a couple hacks try to somehow make it that i am the bad guy on this issue? if it was blowing so fucking hard, how come EVERY OTHER CLASS SAILED ON SUNDAY EXCEPT THE TIGERS??? because owners "had enough merit badges" or didn't want to flog their mains?? no, it is because the fleet is weak, as evidenced by their non-participation and the responses here.

First off, Ed who really cares what you have to say? Not as many as you'd like to think. This guy and the Tiger I race on wanted to go out, but a certain few (mainly one) tigers didn't want to. Unfortunately when that tiger said no, most others followed suit. It would have been one tiger(maybe two?) on the start line, and no way in hell would RC start a race with one tiger on the line. Whether its NOODS, Midwinters, or the SA Regatta. If you have a problemm with the NOODS then take it up with them. Dont take your little cry baby attitude out on the Tiger Fleet. Maybe if we had been in Mission bay we could have grabbed ten races like the Solings, but down in SD bay conditions didn't allow that on saturday.

 

For someone who complains all the time about politics, poor sportsmanship and oversized ego's in regattas and sailing associations like NOODS, US Sailing, and SW you sure do bring alot of your own into the mix. your not that much different then those guys ya know....

here's what i know, genius - nobody cares what you have to say. again, it is amusing to see an apologist for this lame fleet try to deflect the truth with weak slaps at me. is that all ya got? go back to the kid's table where you belong...

 

movable ballast - that ship sailed long ago...

Actually, the CorYC Race Committee did a start for two Ultimate 20's on Sunday. We would have happily done a start for two Flying Tigers.

 

Having had a blast on Elusive (24) in these kind of conditions in the past, I was more than a little surprised that the fleet didn't go out and I told the Ed so on Sunday.

 

Having been involved with setting up the South Bay portion of the San Diego NOOD for the last two years, I share the Ed's frustration with Sailing World. But, as I posted in this forum last week, I was disappointed that Anarchy wasn't on the line this weekend supporting the fleet and supporting Coronado Yacht Club.
