      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 read he was caught slammin the ham by a female jailer, it might jeopardize his release. It surely ruined it. Might be fake news, but we can hope anyway...
  2. Still waiting for you to add something of substance other than a YouTube video about a small fringe group with some stuff to sell and some wild assed conspiracy theories. You've added nothing. When asked for specifics, you point to the video or the dark web and say "it's all there mate!". You're not all there Runningdumb. This thread was your forum to present your ideas and explain your theories in detail, instead you hid like a bitch, then came in and paraded around like the village idiot you are. You're a joke mate.
  3. I can't either. I just look for fb video on YouTube and use the share function there. link no good
  4. The DC8 was the only civilian airliner I knew of that could deploy the TRs in flight, (no flight spoilers or speed brakes) It makes sense the MD87 would too, same family. OGT is correct though, the majority of commercial aircraft use ground proximity or squat switches to lock out reversers when the gear doesn't have weight on it. There was a crash years ago when TRs deployed in flight on a commercial plane, don't recall the details.
  5. At least a walker.
  6. The squirrels received a demand for surrender from Dorado. They sent back a one word answer he found puzzling. All it said was "nuts".
  7. Did you have to mention Ivars? Now I'm going to be craving fresh seafood all night. Two things you cant get in Oklahoma, weed and fresh seafood. Any ocean fish that make it this far inland are too worn out from the road, and we don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee.
  8. I just learned recreational use was legalized in Vegas last month. It was like being told hell froze over.
  9. I think there are 2 people left on this forum that think you have something valid to say. If "I don't care about what is and is not possible" didn't convince them your mind is mush, this should.
  10. Maybe the cop is one of ours?
  11. In Japan it's considered a status symbol walk around downtown Tokyo with pajamas on, but then they don't have guns in Japan either. Except those carried by Yakuza, that is.
  12. Wait, what was that guy in the chevy compact doing in there?
