      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. The sail maker and a certain rigger who share the same building are notorious in this regard.
  2. Superbowl city is being built. What a shit show its creating with traffic. Yet San Francisco can do nothing with the homeless, who have more rights, privilege and services then the tax payers. They seem free to roam, piss, shit, at will all over the city. Wonder how this will play out over the next two weeks? Or has the city given them all 50 yard line tickets through some dumb ass social service, at the costs of the tax payers.
  3. Ding, ding, ding. Winner in BOLD Everyone has less time then before and organizing a crew is almost a full time job.
  4. What about one-design TP 52, or similar sized modern boat??? Cause the Volvo tried this concept and it worked really well. Too bad they didn't think this one out.......
  5. 1) It's precedent, and yes, sailors have been compensated by the court for negligent working conditions since it was passed. The Jones Act was in fact enacted because the Seaman's Act of 1915 provided lots of 'new rights' for sailors but neglected to address injuries aboard ship. 2) This is how the US congress decided the system works. They passed the law in 1920, and my impression was that they write the laws, not you. I am struggling to find out what possible right or responsibility 'we' have to dictate the way that 'we' all want professional sailing to go, or how 'we' have anything to do with encouraging or discouraging this behavior. Are you a senator? A federal judge? Are you going to lobby congress? 3) I am not so sure you understand the law the way you think you do. Kenny is from Great South Bay (Bayberry YC) and Clean is from Rockville Centre. Could there be a geographical reason why they're in agreement that a lawsuit is the answer to all problems? I love it when Long Islanders are so predictable so so true to form. Hey, I'm a jew and a lawyer too. Got anything cute to say about that? No shit. That explains EVERYTHING.
  6. Locals hate white people. Fences with razor wire along the tops to keep the tourists in.... Yeh, great island
  7. maybe there will even be wind.......
  8. Wow, an advertisement masquerading as a thread..... And I thought this was about weather predictions and forecasts.....
  9. The most unbelievable part of that fantasy is that it's happening on a single aisle four-across regional jet. Imagine what kind of service row 1,2, and 3 get! Her bush looks like Hitler' mustache
  10. Sleep with your feet forward. Better to bang your heel than break your neck.
  11. What a shit hole that place is. well, it's a town, not a resort... as far as towns in the caribbean where local people live and work, it's pretty typical - lot's of businesses, tourist infrastructure.., tourist bars and restaurants , local bars and restaurants ...with crystal blue water, white sand beaches, warm temperatures, and trade winds. Sounds like a real shit hole. Cheap beer. Its fucking terrible man, don't ever go there. You might.... be comfortable. Fucking awful. Talking about crime, meth, blow, locals who hate white people.... St Thomas has plenty of resorts with fences with razor wire at the top, and its not to keep the tourists in
  12. Yom Kipper Clipper? Sorry, couldn't resist.
  13. Her belly button looks like a vigina
  14. She made him chitlins, grits, BBQ, and he had a forty to wash it all down while smokin a blunt. What were you expecting???
  15. stupid plot, too easy to follow, not complex enough. The ending left nothing to wonder about for the next 2 years. This is Star Wars, NOT Star Trek JJ
