      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  3. You should have foot off before, denying him room to tacked from Port to Starboard between you and the mark - forcing him to go behind your stern.
  5. PHRF SD gonna ban 40 year old boats lol
  6. Was Scooter onboard? you really haven't figured that out by now? Think there was a standby skipper replacement /switch-a-roo again. well, considering i wasn't there i guess i don't have any pics, now do i? and the boys were a bit busy at the time. oh how sorry i am that we didn't meet your standards. you are a whiney cunt. cut and paste? that is fucking hilarious. don't you have some cock to suck over at those other great sites?. Figures! you must have been on the Titanic as well - no photos
  7. Imagine the World's self-proclaimed "Best Sailing website" with on-the-spot reporting and not one fucking action video or photo of the ED's amazing sea rescue??? At least when he uses Cut & Paste articles from those other not so great sailing sites, we at least get photos. Post rescue action photos here...
  8. bury him at sea, might be become useful at last as fish food...
  9. Abandoned Melges 32 "Anarchy" - another needed donation to Disabled Sailing - way to Go! p.s. I can't look backwards email me.
  10. who the F%$#ck is Scot Tempesta - a ghost of sailing past???
  11. Some TRUTH in APRIL FOLLY. Oh! well ED "When the going get's tough the tough get going"... After being screwed by PHRF San Diego, abused by people in my own forum, and realizing that I am way over my head owning a Melges 32, the good ship Anarchy is for sale. We cherry picked as many wins as we are likely to get, and with at least two more 32′s coming to town, I’m getting out now. Fuck San Diego, Fuck PHRF, Fuck all y’all. $70k. not again... there's this new ED boat donation campaign a.k.a. (legal defense fund): The parent company that recently bought the hideous POS Scuttledbutt for a reported $250,000 (and thankfully put that a-hole Leweck out to pasture), Epic Media Ventures, has decided to file suit against us for a “continued pattern of abuse, defamation, libel and slander against Scuttlebutt, it’s owners and directors.” Without saying too much (as we have been advised not to by our attorneys), it goes without saying that this suit is even more retarded than the last one, and once again, we ask you to support our legal defense fund. FOOLS CLICK HERE TO "DONATE FOR NEW RACE BOAT" “There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.” - George Bush
  12. hey! is this is the only way we can win a Gold medal at sailing other than using our "Rockstars" who suck at winning anything with Olympic in it? Send ED he's a retard of note...
  13. Me thinks Brad should go one design - yeah right! he will have his hands full protesting in his attempts to wipe out the whole fleet for beating him time and again. The self-proclaimed sailor of the year 2015 won PHRF without having any competition in PHRF 3 and his crew think they are F$#@! hot. Watch for CRA for rule changes in 2017.
  14. As an ex-El Sueno crew member with a free! t-shirt (Refused to pay) I can verify its true, the continuous and ever changing of Polo shirt colors just gets you in the end.
  15. what a sailing Dick changing our forum posts weblinks for porn site links, definitely has lost his marbles for sure... so much for Anarchy that is censored by its own Ed, suppose he's gonna say he was hacked.
