      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

  1. At -3 since beginning of month. It has been slow coming off but also working out so down one inch on waist snd my old musto shorts fit again.
  2. What is written on the side of the hull??? Kinda looks like someone was marooned on a desserted island and forced to make the best boat possible out of the contents of a conference room. It really looks like the result of some odd team building exercise. Sorry about the Mac, but that album I linked is far from exhausted. Bolger to the rescue again! I don't know what it is, but it's gotta be by Bolger, right?Hmmm. Be interesting to see what would happen in the even of a Chinese gybe. Or even going about and heading back upwind.
  3. ugh back at start weight. +0
  4. I'm down 2.5 lbs so far. I've limited myself to one one beer per race day and no alcohol except at or after sailing events ( which basically means max 3 drinks a week). My bad summer habit is a drink or two post races with a bunch of unhealthy foods and since race a few nights a week this has an effect on my waist. I have been counting everything I eat. I am also working out more( racing boats does not count as a workout)Crunches and planks and ab workouts oh my!! I have not remeasured my waist but my several year old black musto shorts that were feeling too tight are feeling looser. p.s. No way am I posting pics on a SA thread I know how harsh you boys are for any girl who is not model lovely p.p.s. No way am I posting actual weight as I'm 5'10'' and guys always seem to think that tall women should weigh the same as short women and I do not want to open myself up to that commentary either.
  5. Ok I'm 3 days into trying a diet again. My goal is to lose 5 lbs in June and tone up my abs. Basically get myself into Bikini shape for 4th of July.
  6. Put that on land and add a slide and it would be a neat jungle gym for the kiddos
  7. Cute as its original incarnation as a sandbox for kids. A safety hazard as it now stands.
  8. Oh look at his blog Weirdest weather description ever"I was in 30 or so knot winds facing steep and frequent wind waves and an offset swell. I also experienced a train of breaking waves, the first of which broke over my bow, knocking my very large (50 plants) onion planter off my saloon. "
  9. Fastnet force ten although do not lend to your mother who is weather nervous anyway when out sailing and reading books Tall Ship down- I am currently reading this. Great Nautical Histiory The War for all the Oceans- One of my all time favorite books lengthy but wonderful. The Proving Ground- Another one about racing disaster but with lessons built in Endurance- This is the story of the shakelton expedition,. Totally one of the best ever true sea tales makes you want to curl up in a warm blanket and read about exploration.
  10. Wait he saved a bottle of Dom from his boat??? I like champange but that is not what I bring in my bug out bag.
  11. First you stop the leak but after that you could remove 70 gallons a day with the basic manual pump
  12. Down 9 lbs in 10 days that is amazing!!
  13. As this is Sailing anarchy maybe you should do a mini version of Norfolk Rebel the tugentine out of Norfolk VA.
  14. A fleet. Those are contradictory requests he/she needs a flotilla of boats some on west coast some on east.
  15. Titanic Oracle Bounty Shamrock Endeavor Constitution Constellation President Congress United States All classic names not to be taken. Names I just love Molto bene - a benetau means very good in Italian Hydrophilic- my dad's boat he is a chemist it is scientific for water loving Aunt jean - a boat that races on Chesapeake where aunt Jean's will allowed them to buy the boat.
