"...Court fo the Southern District..."

Not that I'm under the illusion that everyone who works for the federal government can correctly spell big words like "of," but it seems to me that somebody would have proofread it and found the error.

Re: Forum seized by Federal Authorities???

sure its a joke, but wouldnt mind if that site disappeared. adolescent content, hipster douchebag lingo, all the jackass testosterone that makes people hate racers in the first place. actually hope they get sued out of existence and one of the more professional sites soaks-up their traffic...

No, they got it right. I think that's how it's pronounced in parts of SoCal.

Clearly, that site has some of the most knowledgeable and wealthy people in sailing though. How can you possibly harbor so much hate for a website as to hope all of that? Why not just stay on this forum?

Re: Forum seized by Federal Authorities???

No problem, call the FBI to ask why they seized the site. And then the FBI will call the District Court to let them know someone is "counterfeiting" a court seizure notice, which, ah, generally is a big no-no. Even in California. Even as a joke.

This could be a good thing, the guys at SA could organize a San Quentin Yacht Club.

Well someone did there research because the criminal code they used has to do with asset forfeiture. 18 U.S.C. 983 (j)

Oops, looks like they were attempting to spell "for" and not "of" after all because they just changed it. Could it be that one of their mods is monitoring this site?
