      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.

    My wonderful children and my smart,fun, funny and beautiful wife!Sharing: experiences; memories; moments... Building old Jeeps and boats... turning wrenches, shaping wood, welding, moulding fiberglas/resin, photography, cooking, reading, bicycling, and sailing again, SOON! Can you tell I am ADD?
  1. 2 or 3 would be be even better. To quote Hippie, "Here's MIRV!"
  2. May I chime in on the on the bourbon chant.... http://www.woodfordreserve.com/whiskey/double-oaked/ http://www.singleoakproject.com/ Barrel #137 is the best that I have had of these.... smoothest damned spirit to cross my tongue!
  3. Doug, Have you considered a fairing of the track in the final configuration? There are several closed cell foam solutions that you can mold to a low drag shape and even mold the tubes in to pass your control cables... It might ameliorate the possibility that Terry brought up. I know my attention is not perfect and I might miss that split second opportunity to "gun it" and save it. If it were both lower drag and (granted tiny)a bit of buoyancy, perchance it might make the difference... C.T.
  4. Yes.... wanna get pancakes?
  5. Can't stop the signal, Mal...
  6. Hot chicks on golfcarts were giving them away at the 2013 500. The bumperstickers were on magnetic backing.... I had one on my Jeep until someone stole the sticker a month ago!!
  7. (604): The goal for tonight is vagina. In and around. Doesn't matter who. How. Or why. Ah, to be young and fearless...and Stooopid.
  8. (610): I have a fannypack full of condoms and acid. Let's get weird. You could overload on the texture changes.....
  9. Where's the little angelic face emoticon?! Just shared that with a friend who's working late in Nairobi, and who just had security pop in to check why she was laughing like that while all alone in the office.... Nothing beats a good laugh. I've not been accused of any angelic qualities.... heinous anus... but, nothing nice...
  10. (613): Marking my student's "don't do drugs" posters while simultaneously texting my dealer, is this what being a grown up is like? Higher education in Canada........................
  11. Just back from visiting my brother & family for my niece's high school graduation. SiL is doing fantastically. Her drain comes out tomorrow, swelling is much decreased, sense of humour completely in tact. We enjoyed a belly-laugh about a T-shirt she'd heard about. A woman who has had a double-mastectomy and reconstruction, proudly sports a T-shirt that says "Yes, they're fake. The originals tried to kill me!" Laughter ... the best medicine You owe me a keyboard, and a bath for the cat sitting at my feet with Iced Tea all over him...
  12. Bump, just because... I keep reading... I keep hoping I will be able to write about my second hand experience with cancer as a caretaker... setting a goal of Wednesday this week. MSS, look up Catherine's input on the Go the Wendy thread, if you get time or the inclination. Any updates from anyone on here??
  13. Good Morning, C and D and any guests that made it up for today!!! Thinking of y'all every day!!! Glad the Good Hours are getting longer!!!
  14. Late night bump and good vibes from Florida for Catherine and Dan.
  15. Hope today is better than yesterday, and tomorrow better than today! Sending positive vibes your way...
