      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.

Who can tell me why the Land Rover BAR boat is healed so far to windward 50 seconds into the Land Rover Discovery commercial.

Looks like this wasn't filmed in Bermuda (Looking at the bows - no Aberdeen logos) so could be heavier winds - or they asked Ben to do the hardest turn he could for the cameras.

Yaa, Tata have now successfully made every model of Land Rover and Range Rover look exactly the same and none of them like traditional Land Rovers

If you look at BAR, they only really came vaguely close to stable manoeuvres quite close to "the end", so if this was filmed prior to Bermuda then it might have been the best they could manage?

^ Probably because it was first put out in the days of hope and glory, (so before it became impossible to hide their deficit :D) - and before a lot of that great footage you refer to was shot?

And any ad director worth their salt (or not - as in this case) naturally assumes they can do better than some 'old in-house footage'!

The boat diving off of the foils probably looked more dramatic/artistic...

And realistic ? :D
