      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. I'm not sure that I understand how this story relates to the PRIMO PICE OF ASS DEPICTED, but....... AMEN MYYY BROTHERRR!!!!
  2. this one is not something to be mocked..... It really made me sad, to think someone put THAT MUCH into a dream, to fall short.
  3. Boothy, you need to chime inhere..... I think I dated that girl. Swears like a Russian garbageman and eats Oxycodone by the handful. You meet her mother, you understand. Then you realize she's twenty years from being her mother, and you say so, and she maces you, and it's still the best date you've had for a couple months.... Sometimes life has a subtle way of telling you: Time for some changes, Bippy.
  4. Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a ship that had sunk. "Follow me son", the father shark said to his son, and they swam to the survivors. "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing." And they did. "Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing."And they did. "Now we eat everybody." And they did. When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them? Why did we swim around and around them?" His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without the shit inside.”
  5. Here, in case you need more ways to prove your point. You do a much better job than I ever could. edit: honestly, how does one find humor in genocide? How bout them Rwandan beheadings, huh. what a hoot. Laughing at horrific crimes to humanity is something that I can't, don't and never will understand. finally we agree. same as the guy laughing at the beheading in Afghanistan. Strange to note how the post about blowing up praying muslims just above failed to elicit any kind of repsonse along these lines... whats the issue here? They blow themselves up voluntarily. Neither funny nor a tragic loss to my mind. It's when they bring innocents along, in the name of their god, is when things get sad...
  6. well, that didn't take long..... well done!
  7. get. out. now.
  8. :lol: If you can pick that out as P30 in that shot you must know them well! Honestly, the only difference between mine and yours in that pic is the brand of tools. I about shit my pants when somebody asked you if you start every project by throwing every tool you own in the air.... Mrs. F wanted to know wht I was cackling about...... "oohhhhh nothin"..." WAY too familiar in that pic
  9. Stick, is that a Pearson 30?
  10. This reminds me of Gilbert Godfried, at an MTV Award show, not long fter PeeWee Herman was arrested for rubbing one out in a porno movie theater.... "If masturbation is a crime, I've been Al Capone since I was 14!"
  11. Mmmmmmmm... thanks Dude.
  12. if thats the Pastor, I don't wanna even know what the Rabbi is bringing....
  13. 17: "There was a guy who passed you who was going faster? Howzabout I give you two tickets, and you catch him and give him one."
