      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 funny thing is that if the other douche bag protestor (douchebag 1) really wanted to get the Ed (douchebag 2) tossed he should have gone about it a different way, the Melges 32 OD (which this boat is currently rated as) is an owner/driver class. As such in OD spec (which this boat is currently rated as) the owner must drive the boat. Now in true M32 OD racing there has been cases at regattas where owners have not made it and someone subbed in but the standing rule has always been in the class no Cat 3 drivers come on as the sub. Alex is a Cat 3 pro at north. That would have been the way to go about getting the Ed tossed, if douchebag 1 had been smart enough to fly the flag while racing.
  2. For awhile there is seemed he was requiring his female crew to slob on his knob too while his long term girlfriend plead ignorance to the whole situation. At some point he had paid for some lady from the mid-west to move to SD, then dropped her later on with no money to move home. He is an all around grade-A douche. But so it the Ed. So maybe these two are destined to be best friends after the protest hearing. They can find some common douchebag ground in there.
  3. Only if someone pays for him too.
  4. The difference is Clean's buddy is the designated mouth piece for the M24 event so that makes it cool. MS Either that, or the fact that 80% of the M24 fleet doesn't have pros on it anymore and the fucking 20 year old class is growing like a weed right now. Whatever makes you happy. 2015 worlds over 40% of the fleet was pro'd up. Less than 60% of the fleet was Corinthian. Not sure there will be much difference this year.
  5. That boat is in San Diego right now with now mast behind the convention center.
  6. The kid is a Cat3. He gets paid to sail. The kid is not a cat3 look at the registration. Not to get into it here, I really don't care. Good on Kilroy and his son for signing a pay check to some sailors I know, race with and respect. The kid is a Cat 1, but one could say he is a pro in the respect that he has a team given to him and doesn't cut a check of his own...much like a nascar driver you could say. But I am all for Kilroy's kid doing well. I for one wouldn't change the melges 20 class. It is running just how it was designed. Ed is just getting pissed that he is getting made fun of for his M32 "program" racing beneteau's but knows that he couldn't come close to competing on the 32 circuit because he can't afford it. He got the boat from the DeVos' family for a steal, but he can't afford to run the boat out of San Diego. He keeps the boat in the water without bottom paint (likely the only Melges 32 to live in the water). Hell he is so cheap he is planning on doing Santa Barbara to King Harbor race, but having some poor schmuck deliver the boat on it's own bottom up the coast.
  7. I see your picture is Kokopelli, in SD, if you sailed it much you would know the Invisible Hand is in San Diego and racing as Azshou (I believe that is spelled right). Also a brand new TP/IRC 52 is set to hit SD in the next couple months. Farr 40s were only building up in SoCal due to the Long Beach worlds, I don't believe the numbers are that different to 2 years prior to worlds. Not that much difference to the racing scene as far as I can tell.
  8. Second just purchased by the creature himself. Ex-Ninkasi.
  9. Nothing like a cotton hoodie to take on a sport boat....
  10. not a clue, things show up on the local event registration with his name on them and he competes in them - got to (sorta) match race with him in one event this last summer, downwind, he kept us pinned against the fenders over by the aircraft carriers (it is a SD thing) and then on the upwind leg he covered our tacks and stayed with us so we could not get over him. As someone who did the beer cans with DC all summer I can promise you we were not covering you...you weren't even in our class.
  11. You all do realize woody isn't a member at SDYC right? I am not even sure if they let him on the grounds any more.
  12. Some clubs have "competition membership" for those who are already good sailors and the club gives them free or very very cheap membership so they will participate in club sponsored teams, i.e. Lipton Cup type yacht club challenge events. Those clubs usually required their "competition members" to do 1 event for the club a year. Those members are also free to request funding from the club to sail under their burgee at high level events.
  13. God you are a moron. This happened 2 blocks from your favorite haunt "Fid's". Why don't you go crawl back to "Fid's" where no one likes you, the bartenders think you are creepy and Steve barely puts up with you only to be nice to the neighborhood retard.
  14. I will be there. Hopefully a quick trip this year.
  15. Let me rephrase that: Which douse do you prefer and why? Depends on the situation...you should never only rely on one douse. That being said, always a fan of a mexican.
