      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. Please, name somewhere with no crime?
  2. So a flawed man develops a punishment regime to segregate another flawed man because he disagrees with he is flaw? Excellent. Maybe crime is normal? Maybe criminality is just a man made construct to justify the segregation of some flawed humans from other flawed humans?
  3. So man is not flawed? Or you just threw that out there because it sounded good? You really need to understand the things you post. Btw, if the punishments had any actual deterrence value, why do some flawed people still behave in a manner that other flawed people believe is not acceptable?
  4. This stupidity is world wide.....
  5. So the media's interpretation of the facts was incorrect. Why should their abilities be any different from the circle jerkers here?
  6. I wouldn't dare to tell anyone your thoughts. They can just read your posts and make up their own mind.
  7. Your understanding and empathy is truly subhuman. But at least you're consistent
  8. So man is flawed? Then why lock up someone for disagreeing with you? Because that's basically what happens. Their flaw is in conflict with your flaws and your solution is forced segregation?
  9. It seems the deterrence justification for prisons and deaths sentences as punishments needs reevaluating.
  10. You and others can keep thinking that kids coming to grips with the criminal justice system through their incarcerated parent is fine then. I think that's fucked. A friend killed her abusive partner and is currently on remand. The three kids aged 1 to 8 are staying with their uncle. It is a tragedy for them.
  11. People Fuck up, crimes get committed, children get fucked over. Seems some are ok with that. Cunts.
  12. I am sure autistic kids make a teacher's job harder. I am sure autistic kids can be disruptive in class. I don't give a Fuck. All those snowflakes need to htfu. Unless you want to take autistic kids out of the population altogether. And if your not going to do that, well, all those snowflakes need to get used to them and they may as well start in school.
  13. Seems those who work with autistic kids disagree with you. Now what's your opinion on gays, reproductive rights and Islam? I figure your uneducated opinion shouldn't stop at autism.
  14. I believe her idea has no merit. What do you think Mr lifebouy?
