      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. Sorry =/ we have a hurricane coming through and between battening hatches and my health problems flaring up I haven't gotten anything done. I promise I will post an update asap
  2. it's been raining every day by the time Mr Savage is available to help me so no =/ but I did get all my paperwork mailed off to wildlife and fisheries for my registration yesterday!
  3. AHAHAHAHAHA stop it
  4. why thankya! the only thing I am usually hesitant to share is health issue related stuff because it tends to spiral on me and I have a difficult time reeling the information flow back in. other than that I tend to be an open book.
  5. I am not afraid of being found. I use a false name on Facebook because I used to roleplay online in highschool and was trying to reconnect with my friends from that time who didn't know my real name....so I guess I use a fake name in order to BE found. If I were afraid to be found I would not use the internet. =/
  6. 0_o oh lord..... I'm not sure how to take that bit about "nobody is this..." this what? I will go back through and delete stuff but I honestly don't think it will matter. there can't be more fruitcakes on here than there are on Facebook. Thanks for the luck wishes!
  7. BWAHAHAHAHA my kinda folks
  8. thanks. that makes me feel better. I should probably add my Facebook account to my profile... I didn't at first because I wasn't sure if I would want to be terribly contactable but I like all of y'all so I don't see a reason not to now.
  9. now because I shared some of my "fanciful" personal info I feel like I'm in danger of being called a sock puppet again =/ to be honest that's why I usually try to stay fairly anonymous and don't engage with people much because people don't believe me....I just like y'all.
  10. my sister the bird watcher doesn't know what bird that is so now she's all excited lol it's probably a mocking bird
  11. I know =/ he came down from the neighbors pond and they were feeding him hot dogs so I gave him a pork chop to get some good photos of him....but you're right. we shouldn't feed him. even after he moves on (our pond is super small) he could end up being a problem for someone else in the future. *sigh* being a grown up sucks.
  12. well....we run an exotic animal rescue (pets like reptiles...not like zoo animals) and I work at the World's Only Tattoo School that had a show on TLC for a while etc. so I have plenty to blog about, I just never can seem to focus long enough to get my anecdotes down in words.
  13. I've always wanted to blog but I've never managed to do it more than one or 2 entries.
  14. Just checked out your blog and I'm so impressed! @B J Porter
  15. the poor thing =[ I am SO SICK of asshole people releasing pets into the wild to fend for themselves.
