      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. I do enjoy listening to the game on the radio, a talented radio voice makes the game.
  2. look under cellular data in Settings (you can use the search to find it). It will give you the stats since you last reset it. So reset it, run your app for a day , extrapolate from there
  3. what is your search engine set to? that is a config setting on the ipad.Google I use duck duck go on the ipad and have never had those type of popups , my iphone is using google and I have had a few popups on there.. Maybe that is what is causing them.
  4. what is your search engine set to? that is a config setting on the ipad.
  5. found it Click the Windows key and type in 'Settings' this will bring up a awful metro app Click on Accounts Click on Sign in Options Change the value under Required Sign in
  6. go into power settings , I believe there is a check box to 'require password to wake from sleep' or something like that.
  7. Would be kinda hard to put a fractional kite on a masthead rigged boat like the Olson 30.
  8. I would prefer that Gonzaga wins it all as they are the local team. However I (no fucking clue) would like to win it all , as it really was just guessing.
  9. I am not sure Mercedes really knows about tactics , they have been 2 seconds a lap faster over the past few years. It would be like racing a TP--52 in a fleet of Farr-40's with no handicap.
  10. who do you buy your refurbs from? Lenovo Outlet http://outlet.lenovo.com/outlet_us/
  11. 2. In Internet Explorer, when clicking "new tab" the tab opens Bing. It cannot be configured to open, say, Google. Not sure about the edge browser as I have not used it, but you can easily get IE to open any URL you want , even in new tabs, this takes all of about 30 seconds to configure , and WTF uses IE anyway. You're right. No one in their right mind should use IE. You are also correct that I am referring to Edge, the browser incorporated in W 10. I repeat: it cannot be configured to open a new tab other than Bing. That is one (of many) reasons I dislike W 10, which is what we are discussing. ie is also native to win 10
  12. I think there is a fourth option: find an alternative to Windows 10. Here are some annoyances: 1. In the mail app, it is not possible to create folders with rules for putting email into those folders. 2. In Internet Explorer, when clicking "new tab" the tab opens Bing. It cannot be configured to open, say, Google. A number of things that I used to do by right clicking are simply gone in Windows 10. I don't like Windows 10. I will avoid Windows henceforth. If you like it, good for you. I don't want this thread to drift away from the OP's question. My input was simply that in searching for a new computer my advice is to avoid Windows 10. 2.

  13. For surf mail and video, it's hard to beat a chrome book. I agree with the chrome book , I have an acer one that has been very good , it was less than $300. Can't do any SQL development on it. But for email and porn surfing it works great.
  14. Can't be trump, this guy is obviously reading a newspaper.
  15. well whatever you did , I got an email this am from yahoo giving me the creds to join.
