My experience on Sailing Anarchy is not isolated or unique. Scot Tempesta has been plagued with nefarious activity, it seems, for a long, long time. (See my attached blog post, dated November 17, 2017, re: the *********** suit back in ca. 2010.) His apology to *********** would have been part of that particular defamation suit.
As for the Sailing Anarchy Community Reputation Points (CR[a]Ps), they are still being arbitrarily changed (see my post last week to Zapata about my own numbers not adding up). They mean nada to anyone except those who have astronomically high plus-CR[a]P scores. A quick glance will show that profanity, e.g., one-word swear words, counts as anarchic wisdom.*
For example, a few posts shortly after I posted on the site today, Gouvernail made dismissive remarks about someone, who has minus-1300 CR[a]Ps, saying outright that the user ought not to be believed, consequently, for anything he posts. I would have thought you’d know better, G, what with your supposed senior status in SA, as exemplified by your plus-CR[a]P score.
In my case, someone has attached and continues to attach live reply fields to previous user’s posts (see my “Open Letter to the Owner of Sailing Anarchy,” dated August 13, 2017), with my name and avatar pic on them. Anyone can then say anything in the field, and the comments are attributed to myself as a result.
The posts made by the hacks are then DownVoted, then Deleted, leaving no record of them except what can be seen by the Administrator, Zapata(?) But the DownVote numbers remain added to my minus-CR[a]P score.
It would explain why my CR[a]P score keeps going up even though I’ve not posted anything in the Forums for weeks, months. Earlier this year, someone slapped up four posts of 30 DownVotes each to my account. Back on October 31, I was given Leadership Status for my day’s posts, when I wasn’t even online that day.
Someone has recently added the DownVote icon to some of my blog posts, which are Locked, and have always been Locked. Mid and Donald Trump’s Cat’s Ass had a hey day some time ago, DownVoting anything I posted in my Locked blog. Did the Administrator do anything about it, when I reported the hack? No, he did not. To this day.
But who are the people doing this? Is the hacking being done by those who are SA anarchists/users, or are they outside hackers? My guess is the former. I would think someone long familiar with the mechanics of this website would know exactly how to mess it up, particularly since this seems to have been going on for years.
Regardless of who the dastardly doers are, the site is hacked. No doubt about it. And, no, B.J. Porter, I do not want to hear from you any more, saying anything to the contrary.
I continue to remain vigilant, like any experienced ocean racer does, when faced with rogue waves whether on the high seas or from offshore.

*This is not a quality of anarchy. It is an example of vulgarity. Period.
N.B. Whenever the name of the plaintiff appears in any post in SA, a string of ******* appear. Interesting, huh?
