      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.

    working on boats,spending time with my kids because I only get one chance with them.
  1. Here's a unique one https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/boa/6061050900.html
  2. Same car both days but a different plate number on each day. Assume the license plates are stolen also
  3. I got to see him play late in his career, playing for the Houston Aero's, even at 44 he was an awesome player. He was basically payed a kings ransom, in those days, to help get a new league started. He had 2 sons that played for the team also and his boys were some of the first pros to wear helmets while playing hockey. When a reported asked them why they decided to set such a good example for the younger players and wear helmets, one of them replied, "Dad told us we had to".
  4. You can buy the software and do it all on your home computer so that you control the data and it's not floating around on the cloud. The software works well and makes doing your taxes much easier.
  5. So you were hacked because you were a TT customer? Or is TT the preferred hackers way of filing fake returns No one could answer that question..but the IRS told me it was a HUGE problem and once someone has your info they just make up the rest. Had you used it the year prior and all set up with your personal info to make it easy each year? Yes and I won't do that again. I am pulling everything off the TurboTax site and closing the account.
  6. The IRS told me that they stopped the process on the fraudulent return because "there were to many inconsistencies with past returns". I will be covering my tracks much better from now on.

  8. I just got off the phone with the IRS and they were able to stop any payment on the fraudulent return. Score 1 for the good guys. The IRS employees were very helpful and walked me through everything I need to do to get my taxes and ID straightened out. unfortunately the return had my name, address and SS# along with my wifes info also. I guess I'll follow the add on this page and have a look at LifeLock.
  9. Yes, I talked to TuboTax and they confirmed that a tax return had been filed a week earlier. I went back through all the emails I received from TT and found one on Jan. 31 asking me why I was logging in with a new account...should have known something was up then.
  10. Went to Turbo Tax on line to do my taxes, like I have the last several years...only to have my return rejected because someone has already filed a return in my name . I have spent the last 2 days changing passwords and alerting banks and credit cards. Any body have any experience with locking down their ID?
  11. Looks very similar to one of Bob Perry's cartoons
  12. I grew up in Houston and my whole family still lives there. Nice place if your in the right part of town. Good luck!
  13. Not craigslist but.....I.m sure it'll buff right up! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Herochof-45-foot-yacht-salvage-/121753059783?forcerrptr=true&hash=item1c590c41c7&item=121753059783
  14. Congrats on finding the fault, and getting it going! We fixed the fuel pressure issue and now the injectors aren't firing....very frustrating
  15. We have narrowed it down to a faulty fuel pressure regulator, which on this car sits on top of the fuel filter just outside of the fuel tank. It is basically stuck in the closed position and the fuel is going right back into the fuel tank. This is why we weren't getting any fuel pressure at the injectors. Part has been ordered and hopefully tomorrow the car will be running. thanks to all for the help!
