      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 am hoping for breakfast.
  2. Since you love MacGregors I also assume there's something wrong with you. But if you pull up the appropriate information available the website, you will notice racing starts today. Thanks, I did not explore any further, just sitting in my office and checked and thought it started yesterday. Why would you not love MacGregors? Super awesome sailing boat , when no wind just fire up the 90 HP and cruise. Best of both worlds. Cherry on top they are super good looking Cheers
  3. How come no results posted? Anyone know? Racing started yesterday right?
  4. My post in the other thread, bashing PHRF. This is a great way to grow the sport. Trash on the main outlet that allows the average person to race a sailboat. Yes PHRF needs to be improved but all this site does is shit on it. With the "power of SA" why not work to help the sport, rather than just shit on it.

  6. Lake Winnie has a forum that has a ton of people on it. https://www.winnipesaukee.com/forums/ you may try asking here. I know J80's and 70's not sure about PHRF. Be up July 4th week can't wait.

  8. Balder, that is really nice 1984 boat.
  9. Rob, Reach out to Oak Cliff sailing. I know a J22 was donated to them by my old boss. I don't believe they ever did anything with it. It is on Long Island but it is not a far drive and boat is on a good trailer. If you can make it work with them I could probably tow boat down for you, I live in Annapolis but family still in NY PM me if you like, worth a shot.
  10. You should buy it back and I will maintain and sail it for you.
  11. The whole deal is awful. Even the mast and boom in the light poo brown.
  12. Whats with the super small hands in the portrait?
  13. It cleans really easily
  14. Cold wet storms in Mid Atlantic that are not snow is about as bad as it gets. If its going to be cold it might as well snow! It gives a chance to really go hard at the 700 FT. Vertical of Liberty Mountain (Hill)
  15. Drive fast and take chances.
