      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 have a Scuba Pro regulator that was the top shelve model (told it was the same one the U.S. Navy had used at the time) 37 some odd years ago and a DACOR BC. The regulator will probably need a rebuild with the "O" rings as it has been sitting in the rafters for the past twenty years. Did mount it to a tank yesterday and it seems to function well.. but!!!!! And the BC holds air so you're good on that.. Anyone want them? Free!!!!! Goodwill won't take them. I can deliver in So Cal and if you make arrangements (packaging and shipping) with UPS I will drop off there for shipping... Shoot me a PM..
  2. Caption time. Red Bikini - hey that is one nice rack Blue Bikini - Yeah I know and they're real.
  3. I do want to apologize to you as I was unaware of your connection with one of the fallen officers... As for everything else, I forgot, you're an expert on everything. That said, why are you wasting your time here when you should be out solving the real problems of the world.
  4. Really... I had a VW Van and long hair back on the 70's, couldn't begin to tell you tell you of some of the reasons I was pulled over.. Cut my hair, took the Dead sticker off and put Holly sticker and the harassment stopped.
  5. Why would you even have a gun in the car? I am not sticking up for the cop here.... but I have to ask.
  6. But the cop was charged with a crime or wasn't he?
  7. Remind me of the little incident a while back where the four Oakland cops were killed as a result of a traffic stop. And how many other cops have been killed by gunfire in the line of duty in Oakland - 32, compared to Los Angeles that has 101. Looking at the population ratio of L.A. to Oakland and the # of police on the force one would say the numbers are not looking too good for Oakland.
  8. Yes, there was one in our storage yard that had wings... It has since sold... the owner told me he got them form the factory.
  9. Fry's has actually been pretty good about it as we have replaced a few of them no questions asked under the extended warranty... And they did give me a 15% discount on the purchase of a new one with an extended warranty of course... my time is worth more that the $35.00 for the new part.. And MS... well just getting to the right place to seek help is an issue.... We finally did, they acknowledged the issue and noted the new units have a better cooling fan... But there is only a 90 day warranty on the power bricks.. We'll see how this plays out...
  10. No problem they were IFR rated pilots.... IFR as in I Follow Roads
  11. Hey God.... why didn't I win the $435,000,000.00 lottery the other week... didn't you get my prayer about this.... especially the part about hookers and blow for the whole SA community.... sock puppets included...!!!! WTF dude.... wazup wid dat shite!
  12. Pretty cool (pun).. and thanks The part we have an issue with is this piece of crap.. We have been told the new ones have a cooling fan
  13. Silly me.... I thought this was a tribute to Linda Lovelace... Cheers B.J. keep up the good work...
