      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. Peerless is ready to roll for the season. Don't worry, the beer holders will be delivered Monday. Torresen Marine did a great job on the project as usual.
  2. no, and I emailed early last week with a question and no response yet.
  3. word is there is a new majic that will be here in a week or two.
  4. Out with the old and in with the new, word on the street is Majic sold and is going to the east side of the state...
  5. I noticed that there were only 9 boats signed up for the Trans MI race so far and I was just curious if the Queens cup was loaded up already with registrations. Nope, they have 12. That's your fun fact for the day. There will obviously be double or triple the registrations for QC come race day but I am confident that the Trans MI race will have at least 40 boats on the line. $75 entry fee isn't bad either. Or the real time results. Or the noon start time. Or the cross lake ferry shuttle. -000
  6. Torresen Marine doing great work as usual. New deck and gear, almost time to put the raptor deck down. Still trying to fit a galley, refrigerator, nav station, ice chest, stripper pole... Maybe next project.
  7. +1 for White lake canvas. I have used them and was very happy.
  8. I don't see dates anywhere yet, but is this basically MYC giving the finger to South Shore for moving the Queens Finish around? I'm not on the board or involved in any race management but I would agree with that statement. Soooo many reasons why. Start time is a big one. I believe more info is coming soon.
  9. Trams Michigan is the new race from Milwaukee to Muskegon. I'm pretty sure it is now part of Area IV as well. Start time is noon I think so most likely more time to party when you get to the other side. Peerless is doing the Tripp over and trains MI back.
  10. So who is doing Trans Michigan race this year (Milwaukee to Muskegon) and who is doing queens cup (not sure where it finishes this year)?
  11. I was hoping to find something cool that we didn't know about but it appears that there are few options for the winter months besides the southeast.
  12. I would like to apologize on behalf of whoever pissed in your cheerios this morning. Good day.
  13. It's cold and frozen in Michigan during this time and would like to travel to a warm spot to race again over the winter after some work on the boat gets done. I know there are plenty of salty things to do but looking for fresh water regatta or race as an option somewhere in the US. -000
  14. It all seems fine making a buck and helping fellow sailors until something like a car accident and now everyone wants you to pay them for their stuff that was trashed... need insurance. Best way is for a sailor to find a local moving company that already has insurance for that type of stuff (Bailee inland marine) and convince them they could make money driving a truck up north. my .02 -000
  15. can someone smarter than me (98%of you) chime in about the forecast for the last 500 miles? Hurricanes or lack of? Speedy still as forecasted? -000
