      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. totally You give me hope that when it comes time to sell, I will only lose a whole lot of money, not all the money.
  2. It slides out. Brilliant use of space on a small boat. That is pretty cool. I'd be concerned I was going to wear out my hoses though and sink the boat?
  3. Nice but there's a wicked kink in the sheer.
  4. American yard, yup. North shore massachusetts. The boat has a prop coming out the side on starboard I think. Owner is a really nice fellow. The boat is ridiculously small below (makes the triton look luxurious). And the rigging looks pretty light to my eye. But it's so beautiful. Weird euro winches.
  5. This folkboat is in the yard I'm in. So smitten with this boat. It's laughibly small down below but it's so beautiful.
  6. the sheer is pretty wonky but awesome boat.
  7. Damn that is so hot. If I didn't know what I know about how much time even a simple boat takes to get in shape I'd be all up in that. Nobody seems interested in this guy at all, but I think he's pretty badass. The carpentry is pretty wildly crude but I appreciate the pure functionality of it.
  8. I think I was just reading that Ericson stole the molds of the Alberg 35 and made some themselves. That's pretty wacked. I think Ming Ming I and II are pretty cool.
  9. Looks like maybe it's a vertical lift system for the outboard? That's kind of a cool idea relative to a kick up well if you could make it work.
  10. That might be the coolest boat on this thread. If I had a billion dollars I'd buy one.
  11. I'm in for a little over $1100. Painful. Nothing close out but just stuff I was going to buy anyway. I do hope this @#$%@#%@ boat floats this year.
  12. Can anyone tell if it'd be worth buying this during the sale? I'm not sure if I'm getting anything off or not. http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|344|2028693|2207355&id=2426490&cartId=4971449
  13. But damn! nothing to hold onto going forward, and nothing to keep you falling from windward to leeward.
  14. Curlew has a 100% no bullshit look to her. No windvane for them? Pretty hardcore.
  15. Anyone have any idea of a realistic quote on a new build of a 28' wooden Pilot cutter built out of solid teak? Just wondering. I'm guessing it's going to be well over $100k, no? I've read a bunch of their books. It took me a while to realize that it's not all gospel and not everyone agrees with everything they said but I got a lot out of it. The only thing worse than opinionated writers are unappropriated writers. The idea of taking care of yourself and not expecting to be rescued is a really solid one, I think.
