      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. Start with Dune. It's all downhill from there. A pure masterpiece, re-readable forever.
  2. It

    Pretty much one of the scaiest books I ever read. The series with Tim Curry as Pennywise was also scary as hell. Movie looks to continue the trend. http://www.traileraddict.com/it-2017/trailer
  3. I'm thinking that Ferrari was possibly looking to the end of the stint/race to be sure that the tires had as many good laps left as possible , to give Seb the maximum advantage. Nail in the coffin....
  4. Not sure if this has been posted, but 3 floors up and wow.
  5. Thanks for that cockring - come back in about another 9650 posts when you have some real life experience like us 10000+ post guys...Awww that's cute, but it seems that I was here doing this 5 years before you floated to the surface.. breaking news....this isn't real life bug guy..keep up the great work changing the world of internet arguments....you are awesome. I've been here for what, seven months and I've never seen one of your posts before. What are you, Dabs in disguise? Another name change? Cock ring just thinks he is special because he stumbled into this toilet years earlier than most of us. So.. calling out typos and name calling are your strong points, you guys will go far here, I can only hope to piss as high as yawl... Great stuff guys!

  7. So none of you have the real story yet? Jesus, do your homework, then come back and up your post count. He was meeting with them as a SASC member, he admitted this. But you all didn't read that part huh? I'm not a fan of any of these clods on either side of the cesspool, but the way the left side of the casa is grasping at shit to avoid spinning down the drain is almost funny at this point. Now let talk about the AG that sent AK's to Mexico... Or the one on the plane with willie boy... Or the one inciting thugs and gangsters to "burn it down" Shall I continue?
  8. So I take a peek to see wtf is going on in SA and, whoa! What is this? An entire thread about shooting paper targets? And that the COLOR somehow matters....? Really? Most by the 10,000+ post club? What good is any of this? We are fucking doomed. Fuck it. I'm going outback to clean the .220 Swift..... See you all next year.
  9. Operation Mindcrime, this one is actually more relevent now than when it was released. The track "Speak" is fucking bad ass. The Wall. Animals. Any of the many Who concepts. 2112 Hemispheres
  10. yea, I forgot the swing, darn things are so quiet, its hard to tell when its running...
  11. I do this for a living, never seen a peltier type box that was anything other than a novelty. The Wasco, and every other of its type use a Danfoss module, on a BD50 compressor. Nearly all come with a means of controlling the speed of the compressor to maximize the efficiency when the car is running, ie, when the unit senses voltage consistent with charging, it runs faster. The new boxes are far superior to the old ones, as they have begun to use a similar process as yeti when building the box itself. Long story short, buy the biggest one you think you need, plug it in and enjoy.
  12. Very sad. Just terrible.
  13. How can some of you folks have many tens of thousands of posts on this site and still be constructive in your lives? I don't get it. It seems to be the same players going at it non stop on every thread. Maybe you don't do shit other than argue with others each and every day? Please enlighten me.
  14. HAHAHAA the above post...fantastic.!!!! Seriously, both of these teams picked a really BAD time to move to this place and suck, because when USC gets rolling next year they will be second rate news, hell even if USC lays an egg they will still out draw both of these teams combined, seeing as the chargers are going to a 30k seat stadium, and USC has 7 home games next year.
  15. last I heard it was scuttled once the crew got off. Looks like its going to be a beat to the finish, unless you want to take a chance and cross the ridge to the south....
