      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  1. I can't believe or buy it for a minute, a $150 gives you access for a year to all kinds of metrics (mechanical, biometric, etc. etc.) for pro cycling, if you need more detail you can buy with a non compete in place data from most pro teams. Pro and Olympic team target extremely precise W/Kg for each of the stages and competitions for each athlete. If they didn't then they are really out of their league in conditioning.
  2. about 2 hours most for one man. all the wiring is in place.
  3. Didn't someone said that Dean already had a contract with the Orifice...
  4. Ditto, I had the honor to meet both, and they were nothing short of good to me without any benefit to them. I admire the red socks (they are still like superman to me), GD is inspiring as he is/was straight with me. Long live the Lion and the G. Met the Red Socks in P del Este and the G in Southampton. It is funny how instincts work because I met both RC and LE, plus had the "honor" to share a few working meetings with the grit face before his billions and neither of them inspired anything honorable to me. But then I am very vias because I always admired the Kiwi spirit both in sailing and rugby
  5. Recover is everything, specially when you go into 80%< of your FTP. There is a lot of stats and studies that show that upper-body can produce about 76-82% W/Kg of that of lower body. When you add length of time the equation then you can give half of the stages in the TDF of a head start to an arm-cyclist and still finish ahead. So not only legs produce more power per unit of weight and time, but they do it longer and recover a lot faster. Kind of like the same engine displacement on normally aspirated and one bi-turbo
  6. I will indulge you with a few of the worst. The day nationality rules were removed. The day RC sold his soul. The day LE got in into sailing. The day Orifice got involved in the Cup. The Best When NZL kicks Orifice's ass, DB along with RC have no home to go back to. As an immigrant to many countries, there is no place like HOME. No matter how much money and bad of situation your country is. I will always miss HOME. GO NZL, show the world that there is still room for decency and grace.
  7. I would not find it all that unbelievable.....uppps
  8. Indio, I am for NZL but I would not count on logic with Orifice and their supporters. let us not forget that they have the MC in their pocket AGAIN and have alternate facts in their side...
  9. It would be more than stupidly not to acknowledge the facts...the universe can only take one Trump at the time
  10. Indio, I believe that JPN is/was already under contract so to speak. Nothing preventing traitors for helping the Orifice.... both orifice and JPN run common software and data collection to the same data lakes with one side trust. (i.e. JPN trusting Oracle)
  11. Hi Jon are you in Bermuda?
  12. This is too simple and would hinder orifice's jury to screw the challenger
  13. Indio where do you get to see the pressers?
  14. Granted it is really early specially when you have a bunch of douches in the other team, but I would love the young man give it to the wanabe pit-bull. GO NZL!
