      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. Cruising laminate.... Canvas.
  2. Thanks man. I've been out sailing around in storms. No internet. I needed to purge.
  3. Future of the cup? You are an ignorant old prick. Monohulls are what men sail offshore in real sailing conditions. What we just witnessed in AC35 was marketing fooling you into believing there is no going back. You sucked that in as you suck on your bottle of mushroom juice. There's more people sailing monos than multihulls, more fans of monos, more regattas in monos and monos are what this competition should be sailed in. Get a cloth and wipe up the shit that's dribbled down your chin. Larry has pulled his pants up and left your anus eatery.
  4. I'm marking your statement for later reference.
  5. The a announcement was good. Fuck Core Composites, fuck potato eyed white chokers sailing for Japan, fuck ginger sledging cocksuckers with their worn out cunts and fuck all you whining little bitches. We need: Monohulls Long races Hard sailing by men Faggot fucktard American teams with fuck all Americans and a boat made in New Zealand racing in the round robin series with constant rule changes and points carried over from a series no one gave a flying fuck about was just fucking awful. Only dumb cunts think that was good, so bring on an argument for your fragile little twin hull, one design flying boats. I'll crush your skulls in with a reasoned debate. Real men sail boats with soft sails in open water and no chase boat/ambulance following behind them. Fuck Russell and Larry. They fucked the spirit of the cup in the ass with no jelly. Men will fix this. Stand back son, this clean up is about to start.
  6. Chicken feet could be used to correct the afflicted mind. Boiled with rotten possum gizzards and seasoned with crystals of sea from the foredeck.
  7. That explains the old cars. Your guy Elon Musk is on the right path. I've had the pleasure of using an Model S and I reckon you'd be surprised. It's not a stroked 383 with a 6/71 and twin double pumper Hollies, but it feels like it!
  8. I prefer Omega.
  9. Grated cheese great?
  10. I've spent a fair bit of time with Dalts. He's old school but the kind of guy people want to be around and work with. He doesn't suffer fools however, and in no way tolerates false cunts or people that remind him of his failures. His sense of humor is sharp and fast. Often he cracks jokes with his facial expressions and without saying a word you can know exactly what he's thinking. Dalton is the guy you want on your side and fear the day he's not.
  11. Lol. I enjoyed that. Modern American cars are a total fucking joke. I'd rather walk than be seen in one. What happened to that once great country?
  12. I'm not sure either really enjoy the spotlight. Most of the journalists ask questions that should not be answered or fluffy shit that offers sweet fuck all to anyone. PB mastered the avoiding reply by saying whatever the fuck he wanted. These guys are sailors, not PR experts. Dalts is gruff, Jimmy's a CUNT. Big difference.
  13. It's harder to defend than it is to challenge. Head start? I don't know in this modern era.
  14. Bob. Don't feed GBR. He's an insufferable moron. Feeding him only let's his fingers convey more of his mind goo upon these pages. He's a goat riding troll worthy of nothing but rail meat upon the ship of fools.
  15. Jimbo loves to be hated. He thrives on loathing and bullying. He is a ginger wanker. We've all met them, hate them and feed their pathetic ego. Jimbo thinks he's the hammer and all others are nails. In fact, Jimbo is now the rusty nail left in the bottom of the box to be used last. Mmmmm perhaps second to last. There's another rusty nail called Deano. He cried himself to rust.
