      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. Contrary to what my mother tried to tell me growing up I've known this little "new fact" from a very young age. Why it's taken science so long to figure it out I don't know. They seem to be slow on a number of discoveries.
  2. Bump Layday: what's everyone doing?
  3. In no particular order LesbianRobot Charlie Sheen Pretty much anyone alive today who's over 100 years old (I've worked in a senior home and they have the incredible experiences. The things they've seen change in their lives. . . ) Obama Carlos Hathcock
  4. Just get a local sim card.
  5. Fuck you you fucking pussy. Go inside or find a different cafe. I fart in your general direction. Fuck off you cunt, the outdoors are not owned by you disgusting douchecigbags. I'd like to enjoy a nice day without having to breathe in a cloud of your disgusting effluence. You obviously are in the "give zero fucks" about your fellow human category I mentioned above, so you are just as much of an asshole as the asshole PB was talking about in the OP. Congratulations, asshole. And btw - if you smoke, keep your fucking hypocritical mouth shut about global warming, clean air and the environment. You're as much of a polluter as a coal plant in China. Guess what - YOU don't own the outdoors either. Be glad they banned inside smoking.
  6. I call BS They don't speak with that fake Jamaican accent down in T&T.
  7. That's pretty much how it went down. We lead Fomo from the start for 280 some odd miles and they appeared out of the dark in front of us 1/2 mile from the finish. Heartbreaking. But they sailed a smarter course, and that's yacht racing for you.
  8. Not having to sneak kinda takes some of the fun out of it
  9. A watch with the alarm set to go off at some odd hour of the morning.
  10. Good one! I like that
  11. Hey hey. Thank you guys. I only now see this. Spent half my bday in the uk train system. Managed to miss the prize giving for the acws. BUT it ended well. Don't have any friends in the Portsmouth area so took myself out to dinner. The two older ladies at the next table asked why I was eating alone so I said its my bday, I have no friends here but still deserve a nice meal so here I am. Well. The old girls weren't having that and immediately found the waitress and started feeding me wine. Thank you old girls and thank you SA'rs.
  12. Yes but with you here we know when they're coming and where they're going.
  13. Where in the Caribbean?
  14. I had one. Great shirt, except for one thing => The front looks like it says EU until you are right up close.
  15. The desire for something to happen is growing in me too. We've been constantly told winter is coming now for what now, a year and a half? You've been hearing that phrase cause that's the Stark family motto. Winter doesn't come instantly tho. Have some patience. It's. 9 book/season story. We're only at six. Give them a chance tie all the separate subplots back together.
