      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. he sure loves to toot his own horn.
  2. "I hopping to stop in kiribati island needto jix jib i see you what hapens soon. Good nihgt " -Ok so this is phase one of the scam to get a free tow into the island and free repairs. There may or may not be anything wrong with the jib. (Jean is likely the target of the scam.) 1 Foundation Work Preparations are made in advance of the game, including the hiring of any assistants required. 2 Approach The victim is contacted. 3 Build-up The victim is given an opportunity to profit from a scheme. The victim's greed is encouraged, such that their rational judgment of the situation might be impaired. 4 Pay-off or Convincer The victim receives a small payout as a demonstration of the scheme's effectiveness. This may be a real amount of money, or faked in some way. In a gambling con, the victim is allowed to win several small bets. In a stock market con, the victim is given fake dividends. 5 The Hurrah A sudden crisis or change of events forces the victim to act immediately. This is the point at which the con succeeds or fails. 6 The In-and-In A conspirator (in on the con, but assumes the role of an interested bystander) puts an amount of money into the same scheme as the victim, to add an appearance of legitimacy to the scheme. This can reassure the victim, and give the con man greater control when the deal has been completed.
  3. what's all this talk of NZ and Australia? Rimas has perfected the moochers triangle . SF , HI, and Samoa. Rimas would never jeopardize his grift.
  4. Dragon, its pretty simple to explain. Here is what is going on most of the time: Rimas sits in the cockpit staring off at nothing in particular. Eat, Delorme, go to sleep. Repeat. While most people would be driven mad by this behavior, Rimas is comfortable with it.
  5. that's a good one.
  6. Well, its both. Around the world to Alaska.
  7. Shannon says rimas is practically blind. he doubts the messages will be the same as before. Maybe the gps unit a few canned messages he can choose from.
  8. Well, that might partially explain his increase in boat speed. all of the freshwater growth has likely fallen off. the seawater growth is just starting to grow on his hull. Remember, his propeller was a giant mussel farm when he was in SF bay and barely pushed the boat at all when his engine ran.
  9. Was he in a freshwater maring in HI?
  10. No. He can't.
  11. Rimas is good at mooching off of Jean. I'm pretty sure he all that is left except some favors from Shannon..Even Jim Furnish seems to have fallen off the bandwagon. His FB following is now reduced to elderly foreign women who seem to be only interested in sending him pictures of boats and flowers.
  12. Anchor schmanchor.
  13. Do you have any of the photos online? I'd be interested in checking them out!
  14. Should we start a pool?
  15. I'm about 50-50 thinking he's is going to go or not go.
