      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. A decade ago, I saw in a French sailing mag Voile, an nearly open boat, about 34', with an inflatable side curtain on both sides that was built into the coaming and inflated with a touch of a button thereby turning the cockpit into quarters.
  2. My C&C39 is sadly for.sale after 7 years of cruising. All gear included. Diesel heater, radar, several gps/plotters, below deck hydraulic AP, Aries windvane, windgen, two solar panels, two high output alternators, two elect winches, one a massive two speed Barient 32 and a small one just to roll up the furler. SSB w/ modem packet, ram Mic in.cockpit, big as windlass and 250' of 10 mm chain, heavier than 3/8... Several ankers, and all the safty gear including tethers a.d jacklines and harness inflatables, rib with 6 horse and much more... I hate to give her up, but I have to attend to aging parents and very soon, so I am letting her go.cheap... Pm me for.details... Currently in Clearwater fl...
  3. Funny thing, many people in other countries like to make fun of Americans (and no wonder) but they don't know diddley themselves. It's a fact that the then-colonies in America were also sent shiploads of convicts and not only that, further shiploads of people who were actually worse off "indentured servants." This was a system whereby white people could be treated worse and paid less than either convicts or slaves. So there, PO you see we actually have more in common than you thought. FB- Doug The biggest problem (besides slavery) with the ancestry of the States is that so many of them were fanatical religious refugees. Witness the religious right - you're STILL paying the price for that. Funny thing about that... the US acquired "freedom of vessel choice" thru the expedient of having no vessel choice with a clear enough majority to suppress the others. But the effort continues to this day and while we have this freedom, intolerance for MAC26's, BendyToy's, Haunters, Don'tJeauneau's, Flying Hawaiian, Weird Stowe and others Is generally seen as a sign of devoutness. FB- Doug Fixed it FB

  5. Wow! Just wow! I go out of my way to post interesting, insightful and entertaining commentary, and this is the response I get? Good grief! With a dude this gullible, next thing you know he'll turn out to actually be a Hot Rod supporter, cluelessly cheering him on with a complete lack of understanding of the mechanical and structural principles that doomed the Flying Hawaiian since the very first drywall screw was driven into the end grain of a hem/fir 2x4. Oh. . . wait. . . . Oh, geez... My bad... I guess I didn't find the threats of violence interesting Rambo... New use for the FH, cage match arena...
  6. Ya know, I was just thinking that SA needed a bit more drama. Thank-you... Now seriously chill a bit. Take a valium or dry hump one of your neighbors.
  7. Southie? Somerville? Revere? Where ya's from?
  8. Void Ho bombs for everyone!
  9. Except he never posts pics that let us monitor the rate of bridgedeck sag. Then again, the local anarchists don't either... That's OK. I don't think it's really sagging. His bridgedeck looks stronger than the floor of my shed. I've parked a mower in there for years and it weighs about 800 lbs, more or less the same as a Harlisaki. No sag. I suspect that the FH is stronger than many here believe.... I keep referencing Thor Heyerdahl here and even Weed Stowes first cat as examples... Haters and naysayers kept putting down HR until he broke... Cyber bullying.... Are you all happy now? Fucknuts!Sez one of the biggest cyber bullying Reid haters on this site. Oh the irony, the irony...HR never did a void Ho movie, nor painted shit with shit, nor claimed to be a world class sailor or claimed to be preparing NASA for a trip to mars... He is just an unusually special needs kid with an anarchist dream. Nor did he drop off a prego Soy and keep going...... Got it?

  11. We did and not a stitch of decent advice from you, Slurp Jizz B. Your type is easy to spot, love to pile on, think you're part of the in crowd. It's a safe bet your sailing, cruising, racing, restoration, design, build skills are below average. Fuck you up the ass, you'll get the fits when we feel like it. Plus a bunch...
  12. Poo pooing, damn autocorrect...
  13. Welcome to the dark side Mike... All these "Anarchists" poo poking HR and just railing against everything.... Fun stuff...
  14. Boston1 is just whitey bulger from southie... Thinks he knows sumpting, but is just a blowhard like most who post diatribes here. Six pack is just that, you called it.
  15. Back to gibberish eh Rod. Why do I get the idea you think your controlling the conversation, and every time it starts getting a bit to real you revert to nonsense like the above post. Do you think its somehow resetting the tone of the conversation ? Does it somehow help you forget the suggestion that you take a good long look at your son, and imagine you surviving, and him not, this fools errand you seem so completely hell bent on. When reality creeps in, by what mechanism do you hold it back ? Rod you asked "what if it works" Don't you think, even for a brief moment the more important question is, "what if it doesn't" Take a long hard look at your family Rod, how many of there lives is it worth spending, just so you don't have to admit you fucked up. Good golly, do you need a hobby? Let be a bit... STFU...
