      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. what good tv ??? there was no good tv. there was no racing unless you consider straight line drag racing to be racing. it was a very poor spectacle and got no press coverage in canada whatsoever. little boring toys better suited to beach regattas have nothing to offer in the way of majesty. as said by dalts in the presser, look at all those J boats......damn, now they are impressive. yes that is elitist, but so are these stupid hydraulic flivvers with bicycles. bring back big monos that impress.
  2. Damn, I really hope so.......will there be film at 11 of that......a dvd maybe.......
  3. fit the slow boat with bunks and a galley and go sailing
  4. .so the rumour is spithill will ram them during the start .... totally disable the boat ... they only have one......what happens then? do over ?
  5. fucking Trump.....he caused this.........investigate the bastard.......
  6. damn, I'm out of tinfoil.......doom ensues.
  7. so one gives a goddamn....that helps.......and scooter......what's a scooter except a puerile two wheel pushy thing......more importantly whats with the Wampum gang racing with the national flag on the backstay........isn't that forbidden in racing ? ...... curious and happy to fuck off.........
  8. i thought this was about "fisting" .......you know, like a porn thread......this is boring.
  9. If you are not an AC freak and don't go to that thread but want to see whats going on in the Harbour and see the boats go to " PtZ Port Bermuda webcam " ..... fun to watch.
  10. Billie boy, is this your suicide note ? Your depression is palpable . Try not watching television and avoid all media including PA here at SA. Try a cloistered life but avoid being celebate as it allegedly fucks up the hormones. There is lots of time for sailing with or without family. Just take it and do it. Get an old boat and have fun. Don't worry about Elites.....I have never met an elite in all my ancient years. Why? Because I don't want to. The economy is adequate for day to day life. Enjoy it. Just don't be delusional about your suppressed desire to be part of an Elite. Your Elite is really just SA whackjobs. Should be enough for you.
  11. Good overview Koch......it definitely jogged my codger memory. There are still lots of CCA/ IOR etc cruiser racers along the east coast that could try to restart a family based SORC for its original purpose. Communal fun in a nice climate. The various yacht clubs up and down the coast could get together to make it happen (in my dream world). It could be restricted to owner/ driver boats with minimum 3 family members as crew. Hell, I'm dreaming. My own Club won't even consider such a thing. They won't even consider a nostalgia start for boats 40 plus years old. Bugger it, time for a martini, or two.
  12. The whole purpose of SORC during the IOR days was to take a holiday down south with your boat and crew and race. It was communal NOT for financial gain. Now that sailboat racing has become a version of Nascar and NFL it has died since that format does not fit with communal. Bringing back the IOR will not solve the lethargy. One design will not cut it. Perhaps restricting it to racer / cruisers with full interiors and requiring all crew to sleep on the boat at the docks (or on the dock) would bring back some communal empathy. People like Clean who make a living from selling his opinions and not caring about long term harm will never assist in its restoration.
  13. A bit of drift won't hurt..........does anyone know what happened to Sassy the C&C61 that later became Brassy I believe but then disappeared off my radar. Would love to know.
  14. Comox BC........is that the place that is under voting review having voted for socialist freebees for BS boats by 9 votes ?
  15. PM this to Soak_Ed ......... he knows all about Poland and boats ..... no other opinions will be needed.
