      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. Ear wig territory. https://youtu.be/mQPjKSVe1tQ It's in heavy rotation for Seattle country radio.
  2. Yep. Biden(elder statesman) and Obama(certified twit)
  3. Raven haired beauty!! Woooooooot!!! V HAWT mate!! I like the original better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqMIfeTc-CM
  4. More your speed? Pic 4 and 7. It keeps bringing up Nick Cage, but Pheobe, yawowza.
  5. I don't think this has been brought up. http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/303808
  6. Well, "Since Nixon Did Watergate Obama Did F&F" is certainly a new dog in this hunt. Let's see how he pans out. I double checked on Melson. He didn't resign, he was transferred. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/62320.html Rather than stringing him up by his balls, they gave him a nice cushy job where he doesn't have to make any decisions.
  7. I think Obama is naive in his tactics. Alan Simpson, recalling from memory, I once saw say that "a lie unrefuted is a lie believed". Simpson's a hard bitten old vet at this stuff, Obama is a rook. He thinks, or at least certainly at the beginning of his administration thought, that this is not a Machiavellian game. Perceived weakness can be as bad as real weakness. Yeah, give them enough rope and they will hang themselves, and you can fall back on a rope-a-dope, but sometimes...as Clemenza put it: "You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at Munich, they should never let him get away with that, they was just asking for trouble." If the person in charge of this had been canned, we wouldn't be having this discussion. If Nixon had fired some of his CREEP people at the beginning, he would have served his entire term. In both administrations, it will be the coverup that will bring them down. Melson has resigned. What cover up are you referring to? So did Haldeman and all the rest of Nixon's cronies, well after the original break in. Didn't help Nixon any. Holder's resignation now may slow the firestorm to come, but Melson resignation well after the investigation starting isn't going to cut it now.

  9. Mmmm, yeah... Delightful. She's a regular on AOTS and other G4TV shows.
  10. Ask her if she always wants to be met with this line "is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to meet me?"
  11. Do you hunt Tony the Tiger with that gun? On your hot list, do you have every sport's team chearleaders on them?
  12. Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba. Sorry, That 70's show has left a bad taste in my mouth to this day.
  13. Not bad looking in her prime, and her voice...
  14. Well, since your new hero, Melson, claims that he didn't know what his own department was doing, how would the president know? He may not have known, but Holder did know about "gun runner". Check the date of the speech. http://www.justice.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090402.html Project Gunrunner predated Fast & Furious. It started in 2005. I should hope that Holder was aware of it. Mission creep? I believe that F&F used the same personnel.
