      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. When I read your post I thought what the hell dies professional wrestling have to do with a Norwegian billionaire and ocean research?
  2. Damn! RIP Nicky.
  3. Are you telling me a fisherman came to shore, got drunk, got in a fight, then got arrested?!? I'm shocked.
  4. Damn he was run over. I wish him the best but I think this was a hit job.
  5. Damn in Italy no less. Was it hit job by a disgruntled Ducati fan?
  6. Does it come with the Bose stereo system? Also do you have the airbrushed Genoa?
  7. No I run the stock pipes on my Fatboy. It's tuned perfectly, so well, that I don't have to rev the throttle at every stop light to keep it running.
  8. Enjoy it I know you will. Speaking of douche bags it's Thunder Beach time here in Panama City and for whatever reason we have a disproportionate number of assholes on two wheels with no regard for anyone else on the road. I have been cut off several times by bikers this week while I was driving my 3 ton F250. I've been real patient but maybe the next time I won't be able to break as quickly as I have. I'm also seeing a lot more gangs this year. I went to Sharky's last night to catch Mustang Sally (a great show BTW) and a few members of the Twisted Mayham gang out of Ala pushed people around so they could get closer to the stage. It was total uncalled for and they are the reason bikers have a bad reputation. There were a couple of other incidents I witnessed this week with these gangs and their arrogant ways. And lets no mention the endless parades of big wheeled baggers that rev their motors and crank up the music each of them on a different song so all you hear is annoying noise. This is why I ride solo.
  9. Ted doesn't drink or do drugs of any kind.
  10. Wow! Time flies. I was a huge F1 fan back then. When Schumacher retired I sorta lost interest in the sport.
  11. This. And if you don't want to spend the big bucks on a good tripod you can lay back in a lawn chair and put a pillow on your chest to rest the binoculars on. Just don't ever look at a full moon this way.
  12. Touchdown Jesus is in New Orleans at some church I can't remember the name of. There is a Vietmanese Chatholic Church near me the just erected a statute of Jesus and I swear it looks like he is flipping me off as I drive by. I will take a pic tomorrow and post it here.
  13. I had to clean and rebuild my 21yo Keihin CV recently. I was pleasently surpised at how easy it was as compared to the dual Mikunis I had on the 1100 Honda, which required balancing with a manometer. Whats ironic is my 1350cc Harley gets better fuel mileage and has way more power then the 1100cc Honda did.
  14. I passed them about a day after I had a head on car crash. That combined with a broken nose. Great times! Good thing I was a hardy 18yo.
  15. Oooh - gotta hear more about this - I want a '74 El Dorado. What'd ya get? '78 850 T3. Pretty, sounds great...but it's a two wheeled 4ktsb. Tonti did an amazing job on the frame though, you could double the power and I'll wager it still wouldn't flex. Sweet looking ride. How's the reliability on the older 'Guzzies?
