      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. As I said in the pm. I've been on the other side no worries and thanks for the public apology.
  2. Fuck you too. Fuck you, fuck your wife, fuck your boy friend, fuck your girlfriend fuck your mother, fuck your father, fuck your aunts, uncles, cousins and kids over 18. I didn't even post in this thread or on this issue and you are already taking shots at me. So while we are at it fuck your dog too!!!
  3. Don't you please me you piece of shit. I have had disagreements with many people over the years. I have never ever thought they were traitors to this country because of their political leanings. I've thrown out insults and poorly thought out remarks in the heat of debate, but not you. You write a long thoughtful post that deliberately and intentionally singled me out for the harshest insult imaginable. A traitor to my country. I love my country! How dare you tell anyone they are traitors based on a vote. That is how democracy works. You don't like the person that won. You don't like the policies the right stand for. That is your right. You talk about your flag, well fuck you it is not just your flag it is my flag and BJ's flag and Jeff's flag and every other American that lives on this country. You want to blame me for the situation you believe is so terrible, well here is a clue I have voted in every election local, state and national since I turned 18. l have voted for the candidate that I felt was the best person for the job AT THE TIME OF MY VOTE. Because I live in IL I have voted for many more democrats than republicans including BILL CLINTON in 1996. The person who has received the majority of my votes is the African American Secretary of State Jessie White You want to vent your anger vent at those that never bother to vote. That are more interested in the vote for Surviver than the candidates running for office. Get mad at the African Americans that turned out for a man of color then didn't turn out for Hillary. You complain about voter surpression I reply where there is a will there is a way. If I'm out of town I submit an absentee ballot. There is a mail box available to everyone. I have no doubt that BJ makes damn sure that his vote is counted from the other side of the world. One more point NO ONE THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP EXPECTED THEIR VOTE TO TEAR APART THE COUNTRY. You are a well spoken articulate poster. Too bad your well thought out post shows you to be one of the biggest dicks to grace this site. You are now below AkaGP and trust me I never thought anyone could go under his special brand of slime.
  4. The most important fact is the number 304 all else is spilled milk and TDS
  5. I chuckle every time you call him my messiah Do you really think calling the terrorists "evil losers" a fuck up? Here is Trumps rational "I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term," Trump said in Jerusalem on Tuesday. "They would think that’s a great name. I will call them from now on losers, because that’s what they are. They’re losers. And we’ll have more of them. But they’re losers. Just remember that."
  6. Hardly fawning I just love watching you get your panties in a bundle.
  7. Were either side offended by his visit? Were they offended when past US OFFICIALS visited the wall? Two successful stops on his trip so far. A few more to go.
  8. I forgot accurate estimates only apply to those of us on the right. I do like how you are channeling my Australian stalker. Baaa
  9. Correct Trump is the first sitting president to visit the wall. That's Yuuuge
  10. I trusted you numbers. Now that I did a search. The only ones claiming that number are the organizers No reason for them to exaggerate LOL The estimate from the university was about 100 i doubt they were off by 50%
  11. Looks even the huffington Post called it dozens http://newsvader.com/id/17254135514 By the way I don't believe BL provided a source for his numbers. Some of us trust posters to have integrity. Others we know simply like to stir the pot against people with opposing views.
  12. Heard it on my local NBC affiliate http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/dozens-notre-dame-students-walk-out-pence-commencement-speech-n762681 the Fox story was posted by MIKE G talk to him about using "partisan" sources
  13. Nope, but I did look up his age to check the possibility.
  14. Lane Tech (formally known as Albert G. Lane Technical College Preparatory High School) is a public, four-year magnet high school that was founded in 1908 by Albert Grannis Lane, its former principal and superintendent. Its notable alumni include former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich(who attended for only two years), former Cubs player and manager Phil Cavarretta, Olympic swimming gold medalist and actor Johnny Weissmuller, singer Frankie Laine, and John Podesta (who served as chief of staff for U.S. President Bill Clinton). I need to dig out my year books depending on the two years he attended I might of had Blago as a classmate
  15. I guess you couldn't pass the admission test. When I went it was the only public High School in Chicago, that required testing to be admitted. Had kids from all over the city apply and only those that passed and maintained their GPA were admitted Every other school was a neighborhood school attendance based on where you lived.
