      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. Unfortunately she is in the same place needing some love .There was an Irish group trying to buy her back last year but seems to have gone by the way side such a shame to see a piece of Irish history in this state
  2. Clean you did nothing to promote Key west except bad mouth the event after they never asked you back .seems to be a trend not Many clubs or events want you anymore
  3. She is at the hinckley yard in ri just saw her today. she is now in primer
  4. Comanche is doing Hobart race under current ownership also
  5. Great to see a piece of whitbread history getting a new lease of life by the lady who started it .Lets hope clean has the decency and respect not to start bad mouthing Tracy and her efforts again .
  6. Someone from Detroit they had or have a J145
  7. I would think it will be vestas or their old boat
  9. Team Russia was sold recently and is sailing in the Caribbean
  10. Not sure where you heard that rumor but IL mostro is most definetley not for sale and winndquest is been launched this year "Is been"? I'm so fucking confused now. Did you mean that Windquest "is being" launched this summer, meaning she'll sail 2-3 races and then back in the shed, or did you mean "has been" meaning she's sitting in the water now which would make for some pretty chilly crew practice? Sorry for the poor grammar teacher . Windquest will be launched when it's summer and will most likely do her 2 or 3 races a year and IL mostro will do the same
  11. Not sure where you heard that rumor but IL mostro is most definetley not for sale and winndquest is been launched this year
  12. Nothing a couple of million bucks can't cure. Price is ridiculious and the interior has been changed so much new galley and tv installed etc etc .a friend looked at her a few months back and couldn't come to a deal the owner was not budging on the price he was looking to get back what he it into her .might be a good deal to be had now thought .plenty of spare rigs around for that generation boat
  13. Between ED And clean they seem to hate just about everything to do with sailing maybe they should stick playing board games if not Get out there and promote the sport of sailing instead of bashing any club or event that they don't agree with
  14. I'd liken it to Xmas, and it also has some similarities to the 4th of July here in the lower 48 of NA. On the Northside of the Chicago area, or as Grinder likes to call it; Chi-town, some of us celebrate St Pattys, if March 17th doesn't fall on a Friday or a Saturday, the weekend beforehand. If you're a true drunkard, or Irish, you will find this day to be one where your non drunkard friends will try to keep up with your full day of drunkenness. The day will usually start with a parade, a green Chicago river, and a trip to a fake Irish bar in your best green attire. Later in the afternoon, around 2 pm, fights will fall out into the streets, green beer vomit with partially digested burrito contents will fill the sidewalks. And let us not forget, drunk chicks with shamrocks slickers on their faces will be making themselves available to any, of not all, offers of sexual promiscuity like it's their jobs... On the Southside, it's pretty much the same, just without a green river, more fighting, more drunk chicks getting date raped, and several people will wake up the next morning with bagpipes up their ass.... . What I meant to say is it's Paddy's day or st .paticks day only Americans can't seem to get that right and been Irish I can say these things it's Paddy's day
