      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.

NEW DEPARTURE PLANNED FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT WEEK


January 16, 2018
Maserati Multi70 and the crew are still in standby for a few more days in Hong Kong.
The team studied the weather situation and it persuaded skipper Giovanni Soldini to change the departure plans.
“A nice wind starts blowing from North-East at the end of this week, due to the arrival of a cold front on Japan. It would let us depart for the Hong Kong-London route at the beginning of next week” explains Giovanni Soldini. “In addition, according to the last weather models, the stationary hurricane in front of Madagascar is moving South and it’s becoming a depression: the general situation is getting more standard in the Indian Ocean. Because of this news we decided to wait for a few more days and depart with a better weather window.”
