      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. lying I don't understand people feeling sorry for the First Lady. Sure, she has to deal with The Donald's stubby fingers and tiny todger, but for that kind of money it's not that hard to keep the vomit down. When he dumps her she'll get a sensational payout (and some very serious threats no doubt) to buy her silence. Bringing class to the White House my ass. He's a lying narcissistic moron with a head full of fibreglassed roadkill, and she has great tits. The whole world's seen them. How far the USA has sunk.............
  2. However, despite repeated requests, the Saudi's wouldn't let him behead a prisoner. "C'mon, you guys do it all the time! Just one, so I can pretend it's Comey. C'mon guys, just one, it won't take long!"
  3. Why do so many people like sex, food, drink, warmth, sunsets, serenity? Because it feels good. I live in the Whitsundays, a bit like the Caribbean but without guns and cocaine.
  4. iJust a suggestion: As this forum allows just about anything, how about the most offensive, non-PC, racist, sexist, horribille-est, most disgusting joke you've ever heard (and remembered.) Hopefully the mods will alow some latitude. And the whiners will shut up and stay out of it..................
  5. This is how the universe rolls. I post some shit taking the piss out of guys with a granny bun, and I learn how to hide my bald spot. I've always had a goatee, all I have to do is wear the bun and shave once a week instead of daily and I'll look cool (or maybe really stupid.) I could learn to work a coffee machine and how to make a deconstructed avocado sandwich. Or I could just shave my head and accept (and get in touch with) my inner grumpy old man. Either way, I ain't getting a tattoo.
  6. I'm not going to have sex with women any more. I'm starting to think the bitches like it................
  7. Drivers. Slow drivers, fast drivers who can't drive, inconsiderate drivers, totally inept drivers, blind-deaf-brain-dead drivers. Cyclists. (About 80% of them are either oblivious or entitled and aggressive......the lycra-clad mob with the $6,000 bikes.) Pedestrians. Suicidal blind deaf idiots whose phone screen is more important than avoiding getting a car up their ass. I have a very satisfying recurring dream in which my car is equipped with twin .50-cal belt guns and I have a 24-hour blanket pardon.
  8. Talking with a buddy about how sad the hipsters look, when he pointed out that their styles are actually very practical. "See, that bun is a handle for holding the cunt upright while you slap him silly. Then you can use his lumberjack beard as a dunny brush." I have a new level of respect for my mate. Creative thinking on a lot of rum.
  9. We recently had Cat 4 Cyclone Debbie give us a 20-hour+ direct hit. Steel boats really can spend 2-3 weeks banging around on rocks and then get refloated with no holes. I've been watching them do it the last month, 6 boats that left on their own bottom with no hull leaks.
  10. Keep it simple. Half tomato ketchup, half soy, add shot of Worcestershire, pinch of brown sugar, cracked black pepper. Marinade for an hour or so, covered in a slow oven (90-100 C) for two hours, then uncovered 180-200 C for 30-40 minutes, turn once or twice. Just as tasty and fall-off-the-bone tender as the fancy recipes.
  11. Yeah, and??? ....and he drove from London to Cape Town (the length of Africa) back in the 70's in a Land Rover with his wife. Ten years later when he got bored with running a Mini/BMC car plant in South Africa, he and his wife bought a 36' yacht, learned to sail around the Cape, and did a 4-year circumnavigation, two-handed. Doesn't need Lycra or logos.
  12. I have a 60-year-old buddy who took up cycling five years ago after a heart attack. He has a bike that has flat bars, no signwriting, old canvas bag on back for water and tyre fixing stuff, does more than 20 kms most days at a stiff pace. He wears the cheapest legal helmet, board shorts, baggy T-shirt, dirty old running shoes. He's very seldom on the road, zipping through parks and sidewalks, but every so often he joins the Sunday morning Lycra-clad mob with their $6,000 carbon bikes, and embarrasses many of 'em.
  13. Both groups are happy sheep consumers of pricey stuff that builds an image that the consumer thinks will make him more interesting, tough and sexy. Instead of spending big bucks on a really stupid means of getting around, and all the fashion and accessories you have to have,it would be cheaper to buy a hat with a big neon sign saying "I'm boring and I'm stupid, but I have money to waste." I keep having horrible visions of fat guys in bicyclist's skin-tight bright lycra shorts and shaved legs tooling along at 20 mph in the middle of the road on Harleys fully customized with bolt-on bits purchased on Ebay. .......and carbon fibre helmets, obviously.
  14. It would have helped if they were funny....
  15. Possibly Ivanka is raising her profile so she can run for Prez when the Donald gets impeached, sacked or whatever. That whole family is creepy in the extreme.........
