      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. The usa has the Daisy cutter. a fuel air thermobaric that could flatten a 600 yard circle. The MOAB was created as while the daisy cutter could flatten an enemy company. it couldn't penetrate the moutian complexs favored by the taliban.
  2. Dude, get a grip and just scroll up. I didn't write one word to you, then you wrote some stupid thing about me being microchipped in some cabbage farm in Indonesia. If you don't want a shitfight, why do you start shifights? That makes no sense, it's like a john who complains about his crabs. What'd you say you hate filled homophobic cunt? I made fun of your propensity to always have a novella about everything- you can't handle that- I made fun of you being a one-upper- oh the humanity- That has fuckall to do with what you said in another thread- something you refuse to acknowledge and will continue to deflect- Because you are a spineless tiny little weak insecure cunt who cannot ever be wrong for being wrong shows weakness and you're such a weak little cunt you can't bring yourself to admit it. You can't even laugh at yourself, you're so worried about being everything, knowing everything, living everything, you can't even take the piss out on yourself because you're so insecure as a man- a tiny insignificant cunt of a sniveling little pathetic excuse for a man. He lacks the depth and warmth that are required to be a cunt. Just sayin' 😊 most of the posters here can't tell the difference between a count and an asshole. 😅They pull out covered in shit and think that was a fucking great cunt
  3. Woody. This is the shit that goes. I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.( Boys of summer Don henely 1984) Same BS different decade. You know your old when you think the same bullshit is something new.
  4. both. They didn't have the computer design tools to test configurations so they had to build it. You start with something that works and you expand and expand upon it. Until it becomes impractical. Look up computers of World War II. Eventually you find something that doesn't work. Why build a large 4 cylinder engine for a car vs a small 6 cylinder? there are reasons.
  5. I have read this thread and am disappointed in all you claimed to be sailors. Week night beer can races don't happen without Daylight savings time. As if you fall back the hour the sun sets by 6:30-7:00. And in those cold winter mornings when you don't want to get out of bed would you prefer a sunrise at 8am or 7am? Sailors are used to maximizing daylight hours as adjusting sail trim is a lot harder at night even with glow in the dark telltales.
  6. I remember when I hit the workforce in the 80's , company ins, I pay 20% company pays 80%... doctors visit was $40, I pay $8, ins payed $32... then the company moved to one of those hmo's type things where you pay a copay... etc.. same doctor, visit is now $120, my copay was $20 and ins was paying the rest.. so my cost went up $12 and ins payout went from $32 to $100... not sure who came up with that brilliant system.. I'm still trying to figure out why it is the employer's responsibility to provide health care. Because that's how America set it up in the 40- and 50's. The problem is no one wants to change that aspect when it is the best thing to change. It also makes people personally responsible instead of employer dependant
  7. obamacare was just enforced purchasing of healthcare insurance and a bit of susbisdies to help those who cant afford $1,000 a month to pay for it. seriously the Democrats forced the poor, cheap and lazy to pay something for the healthcare they were getting for free unlimited emergency room care. So what's the republican plan take away the affordable part and stop forcing them to pay for insurance. that way they can once again go back to getting it for free from the emergency room. You want to lower costs? Kick everyone onto individual plans so they are aware of their costs, stop subsidizing companies who profit from providing healthcare for thier employees. Which companies? everyone that has more than 500 employees and self funds the pays to healthcare. Why do they profit? because for 90% of their annual costs the money is paid for by the employee only contributions. So the unless something terrible happens they don't actually have to contribute. Insurance companies adjust rates to allow those companies to continue to profit at the same rate. You want to drop rates you need minimum pools of insuranced of a million people. And suddenly rates will stablize. Next up ban all advertisements by pharmaceutical companies which currently spend up to 50% of their gross profits on marketing.
  8. Whiskey scotch and other alcohol needs darkness. Left in daylight like that will alter the flavor. Also I am jealous and now in need of a good scotch from 1978
  9. nope humans taste like pork. Hence why Jews Muslims and some Christians ban eating pork. Haven't you ever wondered why a pig heart and human heart looks the same? The next time you see a big woman. Just think that's a lot of bacon.
  10. While Patriot haters may be a special breed, I strongly disagree that Patriots fans "couldn't care less". Every one of them, including the bandwagon fans who discovered their allegiance recently, are the first to cry "foul" whenever someone speaks ill of Saint Tom or Saint Bill. Crap like "Revenge Tour" merchandise and the like demonstrate they have a huge chip on their shoulder. As I've said before, Patriots fans are obnoxious in defeat and insufferable in victory. That's just it. In just this past season two other teams were caught with deflated balls but didn't get so much attention as they were not the patriots. How Big of a hypocrite do you have to be offer massive penalties to one team because you don't like them and at the same time ignore others who break the rules? When you punish one team unfairly and ignore other teams that break the same rule then you should not only get booed but thrown out of your job
  11. Since they spent the last 4 weeks in and out of the hospital with him it is a fair trade off.
  12. first what kind of phone do you have and is bluetooth turned on? What about wifi? Second is it a store you visit often and have given your email address to before? some stores are deploying bluetooth and wifi sensors and readers around the store to track movements with in the store so they can deliver ads to you for items that are near you. Another sensor near check-out will log your check out time along with credit card used. Tying your travel around the store with purchases and credit card(ID) Second if you do not turn off wifi and bluetooth when you walk in they can record that as easily as they record your credit card number and purchases and line those up againist each other. what does all this extra data given them? will it helps determine shopping trends and the makers and advertisers say it is limitless, but 20 years of data that amazon has collected on me they have yet to offer me a single ad based on what would like versus what they think i would like. basically it is shiny and new and a managerial buzzword projects that makes spiffy charts for ceo's to gush over but the raw data always get interpreted wrong. It is also why brick and motar stores are dying out. they don't realize their lack of selection and choices due to shorting the supply chain is what is causing their sales to drop. Not the fact they have super tracking that helps them show off to ceo's.
  13. didn't see any commercials. I streamed the game and the stream went black on commercial breaks. the downside is I was 30 seconds behind live tv. talking to people on the phone was fun as I knew which plays to watch intently and which to ignore.
  14. A lot of foreign cars are going with 10 year 100k And warranty varies by part. So things that break that shouldn't might still be covered
  15. Sailing anarchy has a front page with news in it
