      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. Good luck at manhasset bay fall series, maybe next year. I'm moving a boat in open ocean. Even though its gonna be nice tommarow, I'm bustn out down jacket, down sleeping bag and every piece of rain gear I have for when it pours monday .
  2. What's better sailor Jerry's rum or that mix from Barbados?
  3. how heavy is your bulb, or is it a lifting keel?
  4. Can One is better than breakwaters for the simple fact that what ever course they may send you on, there is more options to dodge current with the surounding under water structure.
  5. "The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? Death. What's that , a bonus? I think the life cylce is all backwars. You should die first. Get out of the wayt, Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you are to young, you get a gold watch, you go to work, you work for forthy years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alchol, you party, you get ready for high school. you go to school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities. you become a little baby, you spend nine months warm a bd happy and floating you finish off as an orgasm" JH deep thoughts
  6. I think you all should take a break for a while. All this violent talk is not healthy. Hell "Three months of camplife on Lake Tahoe would restore even an Egytian mummy to his pristine vigor, and give him an appetite like an alligator. I do not mean the oldest and driest mummies, of course, but the fresher ones". That the boat up the rivere huck
  7. I think his talent would be best suited in the star class. Max weight for skipper and crew is 413.3 , He could be skipper and crew and if he won there would be no doubt of his imortality in sailing powers,
  8. In sailboat racing as in life "business" It's the front or the back. In the front you see everything windshifts, waves ,current and competion of what is going on up or down the course. You can learn alot and anticipate what to do next and relay some of the most important information that will play a tactical role. You will learn where to place a boat up wind if you are paying attention.If you are luckly enough to sail with and for great crews big oppurtunities will come.For starting out a boat that is one design with a good class organiztion will be your best bet. Pick your dates so you sail consistantly with the same people. Allways sail with other people as well this will help style, build your inventory of moves,build your reputation and allow you to assimulate and navigate boat politics(self important ego driven people) Thats whats great about this sport it;s money politics skill and equipment. Just like car racing. Remember the bigger the boat the bigger and costly mistakes can happen. Mistakes will not be tolerated. . Always find the grear that works to keep warm dry and agile. Don't spend to much because foul gear is disposeable you will be lucky if it lasts one season. At night allways have a led around your neck so your hands are free to work when going aloft if nessasary. Lastly piss all over the foredeck to mark your territory. Don't take shit from the number two or three guy in the back. And when nessasary let them know you right their wrong and they can go fuck them selves because they can't do it.
  9. This guy should go to IKEA and provison his ship with IKEA food
  10. What happened to girls gone wild?
