    Thanks for calling Merrily on killing that hilarious Ross Bennett Olympic Campaign thread. It was one of the funniest things ever on TLF. I see Merrily even deleted the post on the Faye Bennett thread when Ross confused himself with Faye, lol. TLF used to be interesting and even fun...

    Intensity Sails

    Hmmm. As you use Ads by Google as one source of income for this forum, you may not always know who are "paid sponsors of the forum". Currently this thread, and the Laser Class Politics section of the forum are displaying a banner ad at the bottom of the page saying..... Sail with Intensity. Ha...

    Beldar Boathead and Old Geezer

    Thanks Petrel. My presence is also dependent on my wind. I'm glad you appreciate my avatar. I am much more handsome than that in real life. Kind of a cross between Eduardo Cordero and Arnold Schwarzenegger. You are right in assuming that I am enthusiastic about sailing, like to encourage...

    A Totally Pointless Thread

    Yeah, why do they delete a post by Mr Intensity about the prices of sails that was totally relevant to the discussion, but allow blatant advertising by Boathouse and Sturgis, not to mention undercover arguments in favor of the huge markups on sails by employees of North and Vanguard? The...

    A Totally Pointless Thread

    I've always found it quite difficult to understand why Bradley closes threads that satirize his propensity to close threads.

    Laser Class Changes

    It's quite simple. The procedure is defined in Rule 29. 29. AMENDMENTS Amendments to these Rules shall be approved by each of: (a) the World Council (b) the Advisory Council (c) at least two thirds of the membership replying in writing to the International Office of the Class in response...

    Intensity Sails

    To be fair to Mr Intensity, I don't think his post was motivated by a desire to get free advertising. He was simply pointing out that the comparison of prices between Laser sails and other class sails was somewhat flawed because all those other classes also have sailmakers who pass on high...

    I've always found it quite difficult to

    respond to a discussion when my protagonist persuades Bradley to close the thread so that he has the last word.

    Intensity Sails

    Great debate. And fine by me that a Vanguard Customer Service Rep is participating. However, I do think it would be a good idea if, when we are discussing issues in which certain companies have a vested interest, the representatives of those companies should identify their affiliation. IMHO...

    Intensity Sails

    In North America at least, the builder is providing the class with direct financial support. Around $25,000 a year in the last few years according to the published accounts of ILCA-NA. But Vanguard is on record as saying they want to reduce the financial support they give the class.

    This Certainly is a Silly Thread

    Maybe. But her knees don't look red.
