      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. Harpon & on & on & on: Stowe is the only one in this little saga that claims he is part of the clean water preservation program. The miners don't claim it. Andy doesn't claim it. Tell me you don't see the hypocrisy in Stowe's actions.
  2. The most dangerous man in the western world?? WTF are you smoking man?? We never said that. He got to this place by announcing to the world that he was the great adventurer, and then failing to deliver... all we have done is point out that that is a load of bollocks. Don't you get that??? I refer the jury to the many Jim Jones killimg his cult in mass murder references, long before and during the current Guyana trip, and the Charllie Manson photos interspersed with Stowe's likeness, and I ask the jury if such a organized effort were directed at you, would you or could you consider it simply satire meant in good fun? yes (i really gotta figure this multiquote thing out)
  3. What's a soul smell? Is it something like a fart from the heart? HA! HA! HA! Keep 'em comin'!
  4. What is it with you and ass? Seriously, you are rump riveted. Seriously funny & true! Rump Riveted - love it!
  5. Funny, when this thread starts dying down &/or turns to mainly NickD humor, ole Harpy has to come here & make it all about him in the pretense of defending Stowe. This thread appears to be your therapy 'poon. Get it all out. It's gonna be OK.
  6. Thank you. You're his friend. Isn't there anything you can do - bribe, threat, something, to get RD to release more?? 'poon has never even apologized for all the abuse he's bestowed on RD in particular. Tampoon was relentless & RD never gave it back to him (much). Mission Control's scamming should be exposed. (Plus, I need my fix). TIA Sorry, but I'm not going to reveal any more than it takes to persuade Harpoon and his ilk back into their weasel holes. I said from the start that my goal was entertainment and making sure Reid didn't become the international face of sailing. That hasn't happened and it won't. I may be portrayed as evil by Reid's backers, but I have shown a lot of restraint and will continue to do so. The sooner this guy and his blind followers are off everyone's radar screen, the better. Reid's core group of supporters used him, IMO. They were and are NYC elitists who treated him as a pet, happy to drag him to a cocktail party and use him to up their own "interesting" factor. Some of them, however, thought they could exploit Reid for financial gain. If you want to pressure someone for some good shit, ask Clean to get info from Scooter about a certain "lawyer" from NY who pressured an SA advertiser off SA because of supposed slander regarding Stowe and the 1000 days voyage. Turns out the lawyer was dead - a victim of 911 and someone was using his name to influence advertisers. Simple Google searches revealed that the dead attorney who was a cop, was very good friends with a prominent member of mission control. This is not ranting. I post it here in an effort to shovel and pack dirt into the weasel hole so they STFU. If this thread ends, another one doesn't start, and Reid and his family sail off as obscure people on a 70' POS sailing yacht, I'd be good with that. But for SA and Charlie Doane, his 15 minutes would have been up long ago. What a great post! Makes perfect sense to me. Now I remember why you're one of my favorites here. It almost makes me wanna look into this whole sailing thing. I wonder why Scooter didn't/doesn't try to expose mission control after this abhorrent deed. I guess he has bigger things on his plate(?) Regarding the boat, I thought even w/o rudder repair, patching up the boat enough to "sail" again, was nearly impossible.
  7. Thank you. You're his friend. Isn't there anything you can do - bribe, threat, something, to get RD to release more?? 'poon has never even apologized for all the abuse he's bestowed on RD in particular. Tampoon was relentless & RD never gave it back to him (much). Mission Control's scamming should be exposed. (Plus, I need my fix). TIA
  8. 'poon, do you, again, dare RD to post the e-mails?
  9. Harpoon won. He finally smartened up & realized that by shutting up, he can make this thread die. Now Reid, et al can go about their scamming business w/ less eyes. Reg. Dog, you're our only hope. We need you now. Harpoon called me (I'm pretty sure it was him) & said you're too much of a pussy to post the e-mails here. Game on! (Scruples are highly over-rated anyway).
  10. I second this. C'mon, RD, stop teasing & post already! Tampoon has been egging you on forever
  11. So, is this probably the schooner's resting place? Weid too? No way is Weid parting company w/ it. Does the "captain" go down w/ the ship (or more accurately, stay stuck w/ the ship)?
  12. yeah, there were requests to desist. only you said move it. pip, i hope you keep it here w/ all things reid.
  13. pip does not get repeated requests to move to PA, just elle at the time. i'm sure i'm not the only one that likes to read all the different types of info she brings here. like pip said - there's nuttin stopping you from talking about the boat.
  14. that sucks R. Seaman closes shop, Carly won't throw Reid under the bus but, pip, i have you! i'm listening...... oh shit gotta go - my mom's comin up the stairs!!
  15. Yeah, you're right about the griping, 'poon. That's why it's fun to speculate. But, seriously now, what's the relationship w/ Big Ed?
