      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.

What happens if ETNZ wins 9-7 or 9-8

13 posts in this topic

Meaning OTUSA won 9 or 10 races before NZ got to 9?

 

How huge will the shit storm be?

 

Do SA servers explode as a result of the pissing contest between OR supporters and NZ supporters?

 

Do we end up in the New York supreme court?

In my world, the only thing that happens is that the Cup goes to NZ.

 

Yes, the race penalty is onerous and unprecedented.

 

But there is no doubt they cheated. They linked the ACWS and the AC. The IJ was empowered to mete out justice and did so in a fair manner.

 

A court challenge would be terrible. I would be squarely against OTUSA if they did that, unless other information we don't have comes to light.

 

As for the shit storm here on ACA? We have idiots on here arguing about counting races and measuring seasons, so yes, there will be that. :)

I agree that they certainly cheated and I think that they indeed deserved a punishment. I thought the 2 points was a bit much and 1 point more appropriate. I wonder if there wasn't something about OTUSA's behavior either during the investigation or in the hearings that really bothered the jury members, the tone of the decision seems like the IJ were pretty pissed off.

No, mate, we'll all need to take a valium with our rum.

Go back and read the decision. The dodgy stuff during the 'crime', the investigation and the hearing by various parties is well documented and commented on by the IJ. Why they were pissed is very obvious, they made it clear that they could easily have gone further with their sanctions.

Note that as opposed to the presser by RC and the TV3 broadcast, the IJ did not 'clear' the OTUSA management - rather the opposite.

Bottom line is there are few OTUSA supporters who disagree with the IJ's decisions. If ETNZ wins 9-8, then it was a great cup and the trophy goes to ENTZ with a "well done". RC and LE should be the first to offer congratulations and keep their "coulda, shoulda, woulda" to themselves.
