      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.

Tracy Edwards and Maiden did a great job as a low budget underdog campaign.

A lot of national pride in Maiden back in the Whitbread days.

Since her later ventures haven't worked out so well, it took a while to find the funding to get the boat back to the UK.

So a regional newsworthy story that was probably ran as a national feel good piece. What's the issue with it?

Wow Alan bad mouth someone, what a surprise. What was that all about? I'd say she was a beachhead in a time when men ruled the sport.

Is it just me that thinks this is non-news?

It would be nice to think its just you, yes. There are an awful lot of stories in the press each day which are rather less important. The major sponsors identity and quotes were quite important I thought.

Given the passage of time a change in marketing strategy will be necessary...

Volvo have a bit of "back to the future" history if you look at some of their marine diesel offerings in the last 15 - 25 years ago bracket ..Come mid May the go forward VOR announcement might be Tits and Tri's?? Scary.
