      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. Well Done GGYC, thanks for the grand show, enjoyed it immensely.
  2. Well fucking done TNZ.
  3. No joy on Ruku NBCSN.
  4. watching "no content" on screen Ruku
  5. So where is the broadcast today? NBC, nope, NBCS, nope?
  6. Bit harsh for a couple of circles, tight britches down under? WTF? No traffic, controlled area, yeah I get it that it was juvenile, but pretty harsh. Makes it sound like he drove it onto a school yard with kids playing.
  7. Vacationed over in Nevada last week after a late season snow storm went through. Two hours after boots on the ground the wife scores her first nugget. Nevada gold is known for it's chevrons and chunky look. This one is just 3 grams but a real beauty. I got skunked. Before and after pics cleaned with a high pressure water jet stream.
  8. Everyone has already agreed it will be the same boat for AC36.
  9. Cub Cadet ZTR with Kawasaki motor. Going on 11 years mowing open field / grassland. 2.6 acres and all but the bottom 1/4 acre gets cut. Have 100+ oaks to go around. 50" cut. Just started having an issue with backfiring and loss of power, have two head gaskets on the desk next to me to replace. I only mow until it turns brown and stays down. Great product, well built. I can mow one handed as the levers only move a small distance to turn. Cigars are optional and can add to your motion sickness. Yep, get it once in awhile when mowing fast and smokin a stoogie. Have a pretty good slope as well. Had to upgrade rear tires to some ATV knobbies for better traction. Best advantage over regular mowers is you are looking over your toes at what you are going to cut instead of looking at the hood of a garden tractor. I also use the deck in front of me to pick up rocks and branches as I mow. Easy to drop deck and slide out to replace blades. I only found out about that feature last year after fucking with crawling around on the ground for 10 years.
  10. Sail the boards...
  11. My brother already rolled his and broke his collarbone. Took on a hill too steep and attempted to back down and over he went. I've been chucked off over the handlebars on mine when descending into a creek bottom, still don't know how I landed on my feet. Didn't roll but came to a sudden stop with the ass end giving me a boost off.
  12. Garden not Grass Valley.
  13. Gave up on the peppers, didn't make it, but I think the action I put on the garden with the pitchfork may have got that bastard.
  14. Welcome to the Sierras. Nice area you're in. We're a few miles to the southwest. Just don't start sayin "we're from Taaaa Hoe" like a lot of the locals. You will need the typical green sticker to ride on any USFS or BLM land and no offroading on trails unless specifically marked and they are few and far between. Side by sides are the rage and so are the medical calls for them when they roll over. Anything that splashes in water around Tahoe will require an inspection for invasive shit.
  15. You will not be able to drive that into any waterways in California without getting shit. I've got a big 2005 Polaris (Sportsman 700) and it gets the job done. Pulling boulders, dragging downed trees, etc. Maxes out at 65 mph, plenty of hp. Any trails you might want to ride that are open to ATV's (rare to none) are restricted to width, I think something like 54". Also, think of replacing all those tires at $50 to $90 ea. Where bouts is your place? At 6500 ft you will be shoveling some snow so looking at a blade for the front of whatever you get would be a good idea. Desert riding has more opportunities but you will be replacing tires at a good clip. Picked it up for $4200.00 You don't want either one of these things to land on top of you so consider that as well.
