      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.

If this is an "International Event" then they can boot you out only if they have proof of unsportsmanlike conduct like cheating and it has to be done in writing. If it is a piss ant club race, then they can get away with a blanket statement.

Why bother with people like that who will not let you compete. Set your own race up and use the local pub as your club, friendlier people and no bullshit. Any one wearing sailing gear in the pub has to buy a round. Simple.

Jesus Scot, just think of this like when you give one of us a time-out here just because you don’t like us. We put our big boy pants on, serve our time, and view it as a badge of honor when we come back. 

Do the same.
