      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. Knowing your fucked and run the downhill gauntlet would have been funner to watch.
  2. # 7728 Thanks more than very much S.
  3. As much as Iook fwd to his entertaining posts there a line. BS is crossing it and my thoughts... Brent, perhaps you could enlighten us with your underlying issues. As a fourth generation Canadian I am sympathetic to aboriginal social injustices. Perhaps you could start something on PA, use that platform to educate. Do something positive, be part of a solution. Then again I could be wrong and he's just an ignorant asshole.
  4. Spending 23 min watching that is a great way to start my day. Think I'll watch again tomorrow or whenever I feel my life is shitty. Thanks HY.
  5. Funny story. During one one of the Clipper pit stops we were up all the rigs fixing stuff. My green to sailing gal is hauling tools up the ramp in the cart. RKJ is doing an interview mid ramp blocking her way. She kindly asks him for room and he ignores her, so she asks again not so nice. Someone whispers in her ear explaining who he was. She says loudly 'I don't give a shit who he is, he is in my fucking way'. Cameras zoom in and crowd gasps. He gracefully steps aside and helps her up the ramp. She's a keeper.
  6. Thanks Amati. Great info I always wondered about but never researched. They are better on fuel than I would have guessed.
  7. ok.. which one of you guys made this bogus facebook post?
  8. Easier if you can work both directions, lucky you. Although backside bottom turns are to die for.
  9. Steve, are you a lefty? How much foam do you cut away before welding is always a debate.
  10. I believe she's a monocat, like the Hobie 12.
  11. Well done S. Some uncomfortable welding positions I can imagine, tidy. Nice thing about al is you glue on more, like the divider if required. Does all the rode go in without an intervention? I have had coating failures in wet areas like that (or anywhere for that matter), moisture migrates under and blows it off. If you do it, prep it proper like an awlgrip system then throw on whatever coating you want. Never felt al/ contact helped the galv to fail, keeping it wet and salty sure does. Someone has had an education in that? Had issues with continuity within that plumbing style that ate the al.
  12. Elegua, watched strangelove for the umpteeth time this am..it just gets funnier.
  13. Plank, excellent. I got one girl a large Lewmar hatch, not together now. I went with the gal that was jazzed with a new head.
  14. Its 0500, already opened the gifts. What did you get?
  15. If you think you might love her, buy her a ring. If you know you really love her, buy her a good pair of boots... I'll let you folks know how this goes.
