      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.

IOC lays the ban hammer on Russia for 2018 Winter Olympics.

Recommended Posts

Well, considering that the Dutch cycling teams were all banned from the Tour de France a few years back simply for being from the doping capital of the free world, and the husband/coach of an Irish swimmer during the Atlanta or Sydney games made the startling defense that doping was the only fair way to compensate less physically gifted athletes competing against unfairly gifted competitors (kind of the way PHRF rating committees think) , I doubt much will change except that the Russians, who are a very clever people, will just find new ways to hide the evidence.

They have sailing events at the winter games now ?   About time Ice Sailing was represented.

 

It's called Ice boating.

"ban hammer"? Strange way to view the minimal action the IoC has been forced to enact with one arm twisted up its back. Lets see how long it sticks.

Pretty sure Putin does not really give a shit what the IOC do. His minion charged with getting Russians to sporting competition may be bothered when he has to explain this to his uncaring boss.
