      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. The coaching piece of cake is for a series of port to ports, how about the best boat that doesn't have a pro on board during the series gets the TH bread?..
  2. Spinbot will never get it...he's not a sailor so he doesn't get that most of us just love to sail and don't really give a fuck about foiling AC, but do have a love of AC boats and its history.. he loved it when lazza's lawyers spanked EB's and gave tousa a clear billionaire path to winning the AC...he doesn't sail so has no clue about sailors values unless it's about his ginger hero's agg, vitality and fun gingerness...
  3. As usual when anyone in wsl.org talk about F1 they get it wrong, and ginge is no exception, in F1 every team has to build their own car to a box rule, no one gets use someone else's design and ip. Every team has a spare car at each race, so if in practice or quallie they destroy the car they have a car for the race, also...if they damage the car in the race they have at least a week to prep a new one for the next race...ginger skirted around that, but then he knows he's got a spare...
  4. I don't think tatanium plays any part in current AC technology...it can be found in alcohol over indulgence....
  5. Why don't you show us the one design clause in the deed for hull, beam and wings...
  6. Don't forget those ten extra composite guys who have been over here for a couple of months...I don't think all they've done in that time is hang a bike off the back..and if they have done the bike mod, they will have been training for two/? months on a model.. more worrying...is to be able to use a second boat they have to fuck thier first one, wonder how they are gonna do that?... can't see them running into a poodle.... Reasons to be cheerful....TNZ have had a great couple of days on the run up to the weekend...
  7. Double bull shift dribble from the jasper....6500 coming up....
  8. The start of a GP has nothing to do with a practice boat race.... You know less about F1 than you do about the AC and any cred you had around here died months ago...
  9. The above posts are a typical spinbot revision of history, the poodles ganged up with Russ to run LR out of the cup and you have posted many times that it was a good thing, that Bertelli was a crap CoR who deserved to get railroaded out of the cup by the gang of five...and how many times have slagged off Max S since it happened for assisting the kiwis? Most here know how LR has supported TNZ without you having to to tell us about it, and hopefully the kiwis can get the job done and bring back the Americas Cup from your NASCAR inspired wsl of the world... Of course all those millions of Joe six packs and yuff sailors it's brought to the table are going to be distraught.... tosser....
  10. Another quality post from the spinbot, mostly utter bollocks and he gets to call TNZ 'cheats'....pretty desperate for the #1 lazza/russ ass kisser...... and he ratchets over 47,000 posts...
  11. I don't read em, or count them....really..
  12. 46,919...bigly.. jasper racked up another 28 posts of total bollocks overnight....
  13. The jasper and spinbot show....racking up that post count at every opportunity.... jasper desperatly reaching for 6500... the bot, looking for 47000....
  14. Another quality post from the spinbot....you don't get to beat the defender by asking for his version 1.0, you put together a team to try and out design and out sail him. this is the Americas Cup not the world sailing one design league...wouldn't expect you to understand or not spin for lazza.... tosser...
