      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. Really? I would think the acoustics would be terrible with the rows and rows of organic produce absorbing sound and all the fat old hippies crashing shopping carts into each other Oh wait did you mean the Greek Theatre in Berkeley? Yes, the Greek Theatre in Berkeley.. I thought it was also called the Berkeley Bowl? I am not a local ... The sound was fantastic by the way, no fat old hippies and no sightings of any organic produce. Just beer and good music..
  2. Lenny Kravitz. About a year ago at the Berkeley Bowl.. What an awesome place to listen to fantastic sounds..
  3. The Sea Monkey episode..
  4. The English skipper went of as well in the second half and it didn't seem to bother them too much. True. Although that doesn't always happen. I'm not sure that Stephen Moore has ever played a full game for Australia. I could be wrong..
  5. I have never understood how you can have a captain, knowing he won't last the whole game. Even last years world cup final, Moore didn't stay until full time. Australia are really missing Genia at halfback, I think. Fortunately, NZ have 3 world class first fives to pick from and it will be interesting to see who they pick for the Bledisloe games.
  6. They are definitely missing guys like Beale, Gitteau and co.. I did hear somewhere that Gitteau was a disruption at last years world cup though.. I guess thats the price you pay to bring back overseas players for a world cup instead of developing them in the super teams etc..
  7. The poms still play a very defensive game with not a lot of extravagance. Only once in the whole 80 minutes did the ball go from halfback all the way through to the wing. However... it is working for them and their defense is amazing. Well played England..
  8. There is no Depression in New Zealand.. was what they sang...
  9. I'm not a fan either but that finals series was damn good.. I wish I could have gone to a game.. Did you go Keith? No, I watched the series on the TV at the local pub. Cool.. And how is the 1400 ? ;-)
  10. I'm not a fan either but that finals series was damn good.. I wish I could have gone to a game.. Did you go Keith?
  11. Same, every once in a while I'd really like a smoke, but then I forget about it 2min later. I thought drinking would be an issue, but its not, and we don't drink around any smokers. Gotta say, I don't actually like the smell anymore.. a real turn off.. my coffee intake has gone form 8-10 cups a day to 1-2 cups. Not sure thats a good thing. I love coffee but i guess i associated it with smoking.. I can drink without feeling like smoking and likewise, don't drink around smokers..
  12. The Specials, self titled Joy Division, Unknown Pleasures siouxsie and the Banshees, once upon a time, the singles
  13. Just passed 13 months.. Sometimes I get a bit of a craving for one, most of the time I don't even think about it anymore.. I was a smoker for 34 years.. I feel better now than I have in a very long time..
  14. I am picking there aren't many here that would have heard of Blam Blam Blam.. you are however, correct.. Totally underrated, like a lot of New Zealand music. Never had the exposure.
  15. Never kiss a chicken on the lips
