      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.

The often aberrant behaviour we tolerate good humouredly from our neighbours across the pond appears to be reaching critical levels, possibly from the heavy solar flare storms this year. The New Zealand nautical clothing manufacturer, Events Clothing, has a new sailing shirt that features crushed crystals, mainly jade, within the polyester filaments. They say " the healing properties of crystals is widely known, but the crystals also disperse the heat from the body, bringing a cooling effect and offer UV protection. Jade itself is known to cure kidney stones and all kidney illnesses. It is also claimed to bring luck and help win games. " Hope the IRC scrutineers are on to this outside assistance.

This is a PA thread in the making. Methinks it should be moved pre-emptively.

 

Crystals healing? Cue the Windham Hill music.

It's a rather broad question. Would I trust a kiwi with;

 

My Rum - No

My girlfriemd - No

My livestock - No

 

Building my boat - Yes

My life offshore - Yes (most anyway)

K.I.W.I.

 

Keen Interest Without Intelligence . And an AC sailor told me that at AC '95. Too funny.

 

I have many kiwi "mates" that would sail to hell and back with them; and all with the usual black humour.

 

If you haven't seen this you have to:

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412080/

 

It describes the kiwi psyche to a tee.

 

And a great film regardless.

They might have better luck among sailors with a shirt that cures liver issues.

That said, if it's glittery, I'll probably buy it. You know, for my kidneys...

Bumped into a lot of them after they won the Cup in S/Diego years ago. Every one of them was funny, gracious, nice....and drunker than fuk. That's the week I realized that I was still just an amateur drinker....

Same here. No question. To all the above.

But I sure would never ask them for advice on my wardrobe!

I would trust a Kiwi with absolutely anything but my pet sheep.

 

The fact that you even have pet sheep may be worth starting another thread for. Can you get baaaahhhhk to us on that when you can post some pics?........
