      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. AMERICA!!! Land of the Free! And i have the Licences and Permits to prove it!
  2. I saw incredible speeds and lost of passing. I don't know what you saw
  3. All four original members of the Ramones
  4. Boston? Tupac? Marvin Gaye? Boston is on heavy rotation on every classic rock station on the planet. If I hear More than a feeling one more time I will much the dial. Tupac is revered as a god in the Hip Hop world. Marvin Gaye underrated? Where?
  5. Dylan was an incredible songwriter. The dead were and are pretentious, douches akin to modern jazz musicians. I always hear the same excuse. You have to appreciate the improvisation. All styles of music have improvisation but if the Dead and/or Jazz is only about improvisation then it is just musical masturbation. It feels great for the ones doing it but I don't want to watch you doing it.
  6. 2nd most overrated band. The most overrated band by far is Pink Floyd
  7. Ask Niki Lauda. He raced with Broken ribs. 1976 Spanish Grand Prix. Won the Poll and really won the race but was robbed when the FIA reinstated McLaren's James Hunt even though they cheated. Then there was the Italian GP later that year when Lauda raced in bloody bandages after almost dying in a fiery crash a few weeks before.
  8. Jeez....Even F1 has succumbed to the wussification of sport.
  9. Vettel has bested the AMGs at the start on more than one occasion. The only one better at starts is Alonso.
  10. Ferrari blew the win by going to the super soft during the red flag. Verstappen is starting to come across as a petulant child.
  11. I also watched a bit of the first Indy car race , those cars are so ugly, not even watchable. thats funny, yes they are not pretty...I cant disagree, but overall they race each other harder and much more than in f1 and they will average over 230 mph at Indianapolis, so ugly yes, slow, no the race in fontana last year was one of the most intense races I have seen anywhere, the guys fighting up front were putting life and limb at risk which in this day and age is a rarity in wheel to wheel racing. If indycar doesnt limit those cars in some way this year on the super speeways i would be surprised. Bleah. Spec cars = Junior racers.
  12. Looks like Boeing is pushing their OV10X project from a few years ago. http://www.ov-10bronco.net/Technical/boeing_ov-10%28x%29_super_bronco_info_card_2009_01.pdf
