      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. Bugger - indeed this is what we are doing - using hill walk tours - kind of funny, all the transportation company we call, its like the same guy on the phone...funny
  2. interesting turn - Antrim in May is going to have a major motorcycle race/rally event during our time - nope. Looks like we are going to take a chance on the Beara. Looks cool. Will be going to Cork, any anarchist there?
  3. Aye, Now after many pints - the crew is interested in the Antrim Glens trail in Northern Ireland - Looks really beautiful...
  4. Many thanks for the replies, guys. Probably will do the Dingle way - (right now at least) Here's a question for the travel agents, Dublin to Holland, path of least resistance would be to fly, but as always I tend to over complicate. I think it might be fun to ferry across the sea to Britain, train across it to (where the ferry would be) and ferry to Hoek van Holland. Am I crazy?
  5. Heading to Ireland this May - would like to do some hiking (weeklong) there is a ton of info on hikes but It would be nice to have some local knowledge - some tell me the dingle way is a good one. I am up for any advice. May head over to Wales for some more hiking. Thanks in advance
  6. Crash Thanks - that is good info.
  7. Listening to Harold Budd now - sounds pretty good - ouch on the 901 comment - so, what do you suggest for a similar setup? I have the speakers on the hanging on opposite sides of the room - about 20 feet apart. SW is in the middle under a table. Regarding the 2245 Marantz, it really should be cleaned and gone through, I am getting prices in the 600-700 range to have a complete rehab. If i decide to go new in that price range will it be as good as the Marantz?
  8. James McCurdy had a really good eye. Always liked his designs,
  9. thanks, I did find a bluetooth device from logitech - will see how it works only 25 bucks - i found the google audio cast just after I ordered the bluetooth - will see how it works
  10. I have a Marantz 2245 and some Bose 901's. I had used a Lynksys media bridge for a while but it was just to much trouble. Only solutions I could find relied on optical which the Marantz does not have. Any audio nerds out there that can help? thanks
  11. DMT yes, I really had too much coffee. what I was really was trying to convey is if the brain can summon chemicals that will make you trip balls naturally and if there was a way to tap into this ( like after dinner retire to the study sit down in the eames chair and visit M31 before bed. My feelings that if this was possible it would really really fuck up society (Im all for it) to the point that president Trump would make it illegal not unlike what the chinese did to the Falun Gong. It actually had nothing to do with dying, just the juices of dying. My bad.
  12. I write this in responce in reading an article in The Atlantic about what its like to die. https://goo.gl/DwshU5 a sample: Just before the animals died, neurochemicals in the brain suddenly surged. While scientists had known that brain neurons continued to fire after a person died, this was different. The neurons were secreting new chemicals, and in large amounts. After reading this I thought, what if someone had perfected a natural technique ( not like "Flatliners" the movie) that brought about this release of chemicals. In effect tripping balls naturally and legally. How will this play out in society? All those faithful that have spent decades in houses of worship, all those decades of guilt and repression - gone. Guilt free, the end of suffering. How would this be played out? More coffee now...

  14. Thanks all for the optimistic reviews - where the hell do go on the west coast that's affordable (reasonable - not hobo) to live and sail? I'm done with Texas - red state hellhole Pretty much its three states one is crazy - expensive and regulated- another is hairy armpits and I don't know - the other seems like a good deal with fair prices -variable winds dark clear water - pale skin and a place called the black lodge
  15. Shit! So is there a dark side? Smelter? Poof? How about Polsbo?
