      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. +1, verbatim.
  2. Roger no Moore. He was whitty one of the 007 line.
  3. Many are set off by the wild Hypotenuse, especially the way it approaches by stealth under the murky river water.
  4. Well, it's only been a half hour or so. Not that I know who this is, in the slightest. When selling on Ebay, I have message notifications sent to my fone. Not sure if C/L does this.
  5. That's a purty little engine. And yeah, stuff like this always has me wondering, though if it did run well, it'd be a jewel. Their 4HP of this era is about indestructible and is eminently simple to maintain.
  6. Oh, there's no shortage of used outboards around here . Craigslist provided my sailboat's 3.5hp Nissan kicker (~1996), and other deals do come and go. I thought KIS might like a buyer who can spell his own name, has a full set of teeth, doesn't need delivery (or a ride home), and won't waste his time low-balling the sale before he even shows up. Thanks.
  7. That 6 - Two stroke? What weight, more or less? I speak "stubborn engine" pretty well. I Just came into an 8' RIB that could use a bit more than a 1969 Fourty Plus....
  8. A Good catch on the proportions.... who'd have thought of a drafting traffic-barrier?
  9. From the short vid clip [stoopitly taken in the vertical format], that looked like a common, Jersey Barrier. .
  10. Hey, boss. There will be a learning curve on the user side, no problem there. On the user name thing, though, it seems needless to hold us to a once-in-30-day name change just for the present, given that many of our names were just changed on our behalf without permission by the software. I don't hold the board owners or the moderatoors responsible, please understand that; just the same, given that "I" didn't make a name change three days ago, I'd like to suggest that this time limit be adjusted to, say, one name change per day for a limited period. Make this condition last for a few days only, so we can put up the names by which we are known. Is this possible? WIth appreciation, "atoyot"
  11. Sounds like a retro CD title: You Can't Tune a Bowl but you Can Tune a Fish.
  12. Agreed. The proper language should have been, "not proved guilty". Whether guilty or not in fact, she's going to have to wear that stain for a while; One might hope it was worth the risks, though my impression is that guys that age generally aren't as talented as an older chick of any kind of skill and looks should be able to find in the more legitimate market. Having absolutely no experience in that sort of quest (nttawwt), I may be assuming too little of the junior stud involved, or, too much of the adult he was nailing.
  13. Yes, I was wondering: If her cooter has that 'burnt' smell, they make ointments and lubricants to help with that to whatever degree.
  14. Umm.... "Trudy Kay Richardson was in the passenger seat of a Pontiac Grand Prix early Saturday evening when the vehicle was pulled over on a St. Petersburg, Florida street. The 55-year-old Richardson, the patrolman noted, was observed holding a blue glass marijuana pipe in her right hand. Richardson, seen at right, would later tell the cop that the pipe was actually the property of her stepdaughter, who was apparently behind the wheel. When Richardson spotted Officer Caricia Martinez standing next to the Pontiac, she placed her hand with pipe into the front of her pants and proceeded to place the item inside of her vagina. Richardson, Martinez added, was repeatedly instructed to stop and yet continued. With regard to the pot pipe, Richardson subsequently said that she "put it in my pussy" at the request of her stepdaughter. A remorseful Richardson "spontaneously stated" that she was so sorry for not listening and putting the pipe in my pussy. The pipe, Officer Martinez reported, smelled of marijuana and contained burnt residue. That last line has me looking for the thought bleach.
  15. Found not guilty. http://nypost.com/2017/04/26/teacher-accused-of-having-threesome-with-student-found-not-guilty/ If she needs consolation, i'm sure some here would pitch in.
