      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. Baiting G is like watching old Seinfeld episodes again every couple of years. You know how it ends but there are still a few laughs to be Baiting G is like watching old Seinfeld episodes again every couple of years. You know how it ends but there are still a few laughs to be had. Hey Einstein, you ever thought I might be baiting you. Also have you ever considered that everybody knows the only reason you bait me is because you think I am some guy who really upset you and did your head in! (And obviously really got you pissed of to the extent that you are now obsessed) :-) Judging by the PM's I get from people who want to "expose you" and by the fact that nobody supports your posts, I am picking it is you that need some mental health support. Mind you its hard to support sonpmrthing that is not there. Anyway, time to move on from engaging with a fool like you as it only drags me down to your level. Bye bye Mike and get a Job
  2. Pitted me G? What manner of talk is this? Did I miss something or have you dropped the 'I am not a Kiwi' act? Posting my initials is a bit of a giveaway mate, you claimed you didn't know me wearing your speed demon guise, but you were never very good at this. Mate it is hard enough for us , your loyal readers to keep up with your bullshit. Must be near impossible for someone as damaged as you. Anyway remember calling my office hundreds of times and abusing my staff? Good times. You seemed to have mellowed a bit. Just growing up or did you cop another boom in the head? At least you don't tell 15 year old girls that you hope they will die anymore. Well not on this site anyway. Anyway how's it going? Still unemployed and single? Like I needed to ask:) Actually you have got it all wrong again MJ. I got a PM from another SA member who told me about you details a couple of weeks ago and as for some one calling your office? Well well there must be someone else who hates you because I sure would not waste my time on you. By the way the people from RYA in England say Hi....not! But hey don't let me stop you lieing and making up delusional stories to try and deflect the fact that most people know who you are and that your sicko posts, lies, sexual innuendo, sicko perversity and delusional mindset all reflect badly out you and where you work. Carry on Lonely boy 15??? Whatever that means... By the way, Paul, john and peter say hi!...... not :-)
  3. Did you get any warning points? I have got a few over the years but they don't last very long. They should give us a certificate or something to keep.Jeez MJ you would be on the Dias with me for WP's but I have never had a post deleted! WTF did nick say?
  4. i dunno about that. With these boats I think the short course does give enough time to recover from a bad start.... as we saw in many many races last time Something I can agree with. The other way around, longer course creates bigger gaps while smaller races bring more changes. And starts are very tactical.i dunno about that. With these boats I think the short course does give enough time to recover from a bad start.... as we saw in many many races last time
  5. Sorry toruinnyou spin with the Truth MJ but I only pitted you once. The other occasions were your other enemies.and Jessica Who?
  6. SDFor the heads up, we all get rather annoyed with your repetitive derogatory slamming of Barker. You say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and we have all had enough of it. Quite while you are ahead and change your topic, we will all appreciate it. Thx. Nicely put! Yeah OK done deal?
  7. Agree but no canting keels! Just centreboards.But to late now the big cats have been raced. Unless OR lose it next time ...There is always another year True! I like the big cat but I miss the tight competitive nature of slow monos. If they made the cat course very long then tactics would come into it more. Stuff the side show bob crowd BS
  8. Agree but no canting keels! Just centreboards.But to late now the big cats have been raced. Hey dickbreath how's it been? Good to see you are out again. So how was it this time? Spend much time on the shower block floor on all fours? pay better attention SB? I,ve been posting for months... unlike your fine self lately. And tell me more about the all fours stuff. I understand you are very experienced being a pom that was booted out of England and now claiming to be a Aussie :-)
  9. Agree but no canting keels! Just centreboards. But to late now the big cats have been raced.
  10. You are starting to sound like a real ETNZ fanboy. Ahhh Esprit, long time no see. :-) I have been a long time TNZ supporter but saw the writing on the wall 15;years ago when Dean Barker stepped on board then, along with Tom Schnakenberg, fucked up badly whilst playing with a hula. As you know, i predicted Barker would fail in 2005 and would never win again. And I posted it for all to see. As soon as barker joined TNZ I followed Coutts and any team he was in!... and he has nit let me down. Now that "super choker Mk2" has left ETNZ I can now support them because I see real talent, cohesion and potential in this team. burling is in the same league as Ainslie and A real talent in these machines. jimmy is also a talent in these boats thanks to russell and Larry, but is not as naturally skilled as Burling and Ainslie These three are the teams to watch and i really rate them quite evenly. Team Soft wank with Barker on board will not come close... unless all the other teams withdraw or break.
  11. I doubt it. Most wimps here are to scared to engage with me. Mind you it is hard to argue with someone who is right!
  12. The peole who comment with words like "Don't engage with the troll" or "he's going to snap" are just wimps with no skills to debate a topic where I produce Acurate facts and solid debate. Mostly these wimps use the troll word to to overcome their inability to put up any comment that might refute my posts'or continue the debate. Also they do not know what a troll is. Some one who trolls does not keep debating the point but just looks for a reaction! I have more respect for Guys like Clarke and others that debate the facts than the wimps that "make smart arse of topic comments" and hide behind the "over used" and "misused" troll word. Only Gutless wimps hide behind the troll word. Clarke his more guts and fortitude than idiots like Kaiora, and co
  13. Pretty sure that this is Speed Demon? Heh heh.. "You can't handle the truth!"
  14. Pretty sure that this is Speed Demon? Spot on! Sitting there masturbating to shitting... what a sicko! Your obsession with shit and wanking is a real concern! Weirdo!
  15. What is so awesome about ETNX is the demeanor of Burling! As opposed to Barker. Burling is cool, confident, not difficult / uncomfortable in front of the press. Burling, is relaxed, and does not have to think to hard about what he is going to say. A real "natural" on and off the water. A real winner and contender for the AC. And the crew look a lot happier than they ever were with Barker. This looks like a real winning team.
