      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. Day one as far as I know . Sat , local , should be a go .
  2. I agree . I can see the head of NBC sitting down and getting his boys together and saying something like , " ok what's it going to take to really fuck with those Kiwi bastards ? " . " Well Steve we could replay the entire series where they were on the losing side of the greatest comeback in the history of sport ". " yes good one but what else ? " " well how about tomorrow for their first race agains Larry's boys we don't broadcast it ? " " That's a great idea , I'm having dinner on larrys yacht tonight I will tell him personally . I bet that will make those Kiwis choke on their vegimite ." " Ah boss vegimite is really a Aussie thing " " Really ? I thought they were the same , they sure do sound alike " ( just screwing with you all , let the games begin )
  3. I just watched the replay of AC 34 and if you do the same I hunk you may agree that that he is one intense individual on and off the water . Even being a " old timer " I think hes got at least one left in him.
  4. It's been discussed since day one and they even posted a gag pic of their own . Only a few hrs to see which way it's going to go for real , time will tell .
  5. Well it sucks that they didn't get to race today but at least we were able to watch , the miracle on the bay, the curse of the pit bull, and what has been called " the greatest comeback in the history of sport " Americas Cup 34 .
  6. Friday races were cancelled do to excessive wind . They will try to get in six races tomorrow but the last two will most likely not be broadcast do to the allotted time frame .
  7. Could be . We have already seen a failed attempt at doggy style
  8. With as few people that are still using the app they decided it would be easier to call each of them personally than to update the web site
  9. Very doubtful . Lets just say Dean's focus may be on another team if there is any fucking to be accomplished
  10. I don't think they will cut into the next broadcast as it no doubt has a bigger audience . It's all about the add revenue you know .
  11. Shure will be great to watch all the FLEET RACING ? I can't believe there wasn't one barely knowledgeable person in the loop that didn't speak up and mention that the AC is a match racing event . Just a brief glimpse as to how accurate the coverage will be .
  12. They need to contact DL Foiling Concepts world headquarters ASAP to see where they have gone wrong .
  13. You would have to send me one as all the tinfoil in the world has been bought up by you paranoid nut jobs
  14. The big boys are showing their toys
