      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 cup has become a joke, along with most everyone associated with it this time around.

 

Someone just put it out of it's misery, please.

I watched the video of the "race" and thought it was terrific. Much better than the six knot shouting Swedish shitboxes the ed is feeding us. These AC72 are a shole new an extraordinary thing and this was my first good look at one. I thought it was fantastic. Would guess the cup will either disappear into oblivion or be raced in something like these, from now on.

I think the Red and White ferry/tourboat can be forgiven for thinking that nothing was going on today.

Keep your eyes open for the other Kiwis boys.

The Oracle Kiwis will be spying on us from the court house to see how to foil properly, the Kiwis on Prada basically have our first boat design but painted like a mirror with an attempt to make it invisible and the Artemus Kiwis, well, don't waste your time on them.
