      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.

  2. Stupid Question, but living in Co has its problems, one being that we have no big boats here. So, why the pipe berths in the bow?? I assume with the huge Asym the boat tends to lift and you want the weight there, but are the days of hanging off the back of the boat gone and everyone runs forward to the shrouds once you hit the top mark?? Great looking boat BTW, it is times like this that I miss Chicago.....
  3. On the deadliest catch note, WTF was nick doing on the boat?? Thought he was in rehab....??
  4. Just to pass the time, has anyone managed to unearth any press about his trek across Canada?? I think it was debunked a while ago but something just flashed in my brain...
  5. BTW, What ever happened to Dirty Dogs??
  6. Eye doc that I sail with swears by Maui Jimms, Glass... My Costas convinced him to look into carrying them a couple of years ago after a regatta, got a prescription pair and he started carrying them. Love the things, but since they went national the customer service really sucks and every redneck /alligator killer/tuna guy/bar-b-que master and southern little house builder has them.... He no longer caries the line.... My nxt pair will be Mauis.....
  7. You scratched my anchor You guys are really really really getting soft.. 2 yrs and no one posted this... I am ashamed....
  8. Well then, i stand corrected.... Cary on......
  9. Does lake mead even get much wind?? I ask as I have only heard of powerboats and houseboats out there and with the H20 levels alarmingly low, would a 25-30ish foot boat even allow you to go most cool places?? I would think that flopping around in under 5 kts in a circle and having to stay in the channels away from her powerboat friends most times would be a huge turn off to any woman/newbie..
  10. OK, Now I can die a happy man.... A freeking Banana Splits reference on SA.... now I gotta go change my ring tone to the theme song..... +1000000 HAHAHAHA
  11. He takes down the sails and goes down below to hibernate at night remember....... So no worries..

  13. Got out, no cane for 2 weeks. Things are mostly looking up.. Feel weak as hell, can't do 1/2 the shit i used to do in a day, but getting better.. Should be close to 100% by nationals up in Dillon.. Thanks for all the good vibes....
  14. Yea, "Free" Until the country he leaked to nukes Seattle... Aint too far from van correct??? You are in this just as much as we are...
  15. No one really mentioned it, but in not so subtle terms, tell her to always have an out.. An escape route no matter how benign the situation seems... and yes sometimes this involves gunning it and going into some weird and maybe illegal places.. (sidewalks, parks ditches etc,,,) anything Is better than oncoming traffic and/or hitting big metal stuff......
