      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. Serious video quality there.
  2. " pulchritudinous " Hubba hubba ! ! ! Well done sir ! That's a $20 word if ever there was one. Be careful with words like that over at Sailing Anarchy. Those guys max out at $6.75.
  3. Apparently Woody's latest cougar is into tatts.
  4. Salaries on a J70? Heavens to murgatroyd !
  5. Big boys ? KWRW is mostly one design.
  6. It might be an S & S 39.
  7. There are no Caitlyns in BJ's family. Think about the families that do have one and might be thinking of a boob job.
  8. Don't get too tangled up on all that. Knowing the hull manufacturer and model will be almost zero help in ordering parts.
  9. Is BJ getting a boob job ? Where will it end ? Caitlyn Porter ?
  10. One could equally ask how long before the next floozie steps up ignoring that he has form. Blondes preferred.
  11. There are 8 pubs within a 15 minute walk of my house in the inner west.
  12. I meant 'tash and brows. Post now edited.
  13. LV are presently somewhere in Queensland on a chartered mono.
  14. Oh well if we are going to pick regions I would suggest the inner west which in my case means Annandale, Leichhardt, Rozelle and Lilyfield. Why ? Pick the right street and you can walk to school, pubs, shops, supermarket, restaurants and most importantly the bus or train to the CBD. The bus or train takes 20 mins if the traffic is average. You do need to adjust your Americanized head regarding land size. Most blocks of land in these areas are only 20ft wide. If you are not a gardener that might be a bonus. You can expect to pay $1.5-$1.8m for a recently renovated place in great shape. Drummoyne will cost more because the blocks of land are bigger. Manly will also cost more. It suffers from exit issues in that there are only 2 bridges out of there meaning that traffic really stinks every rush hour. The best tactic would be to rent first. The local real estate market will crash sometime in the next 6 months but don't get too excited because prices will only fall around 10%. Demand for the inner parts of Sydney will always be strong.
  15. They won't be there until next year unless he is dumb enough to try to kick her out of the house. They might have a brawl over whether she gets $1000 or $2000/week. It's not all beer and skittles for the 1%.
