      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. Should they blow this one up?
  2. Lee Circle is the only one I wish they had kept. He is/was not associated with the virulent racism of some of the other confederates. Total asside; Once in college I was tasked with "kidnapping" a couple of kappa kappa gamma (sorority) pledges and take them around NOLA to do stupid shit while getting shitfaced and singing sorority songs in the back of a fiat convertible . One of their tasks was to write Kappa kappa gamma on the base Lee's monument in vagisil. Fun night.
  3. Dozens of times. It is a matter of where you draw the line. Stone Mountain is a monument to the confederacy but it would be a crime to destroy the carving. However, I would have no problem with MLK being carved into the granite as well. Would be fitting even, Atlanta was his home and he mentioned Stone Mountain in his most famous speech. It really is a case by case basis. For instance the only one in New Orleans I wish they would keep is Lee Circle. Touchy subject with lots of grey area. The United States does not do grey well.
  4. It's hard to stop momentum, and momentum is not on Trump' s side. Dominoes are falling
  5. I have the Drudge app on my phone. The tone has changed on Drudge over the past couple of weeks. Before there were never any stories that painted Trump in a bad light, now there are tons....i think this is just one more step towards a chunk of his base abandoning him and Republican house and Senate members deciding it is safe to quit backing him.
  6. d' and Guy, glad y'all liked that, I did to. Hate to do long cut n pastes but it was a good read and not something the national media was likely to pick up, McCracken can tell a story. I would also like to enjoy a barstool next to that guy. We are not all dumb rednecks down here even if we have a southern accent, wish some posters on here would remember that
  7. I found this interesting little blog in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Jim Galloway, AJC North Georgia pities those who have been deprived of the experience of McCracken Poston, a former state lawmaker and attorney who owns one of the best names ever devised. But it does not necessarily like to share him. This post, culled from something he has written for Facebook, is an exception:
  8. Kellyanne is tossing a word salad on CNN right now. Hilarious
  9. I thought you were in N. Florida. What county do you live in?
  10. The state of Georgia had 29 of it's former high school players drafted. Only one of them went to UGA. WTF Dawgs? Reason 1 why Mark Richt was fired.
  11. Obviously because you can't see the light you must enjoy Russian hookers pissing in your mouth... The problem is the human condition doesn't allow this amount of homeland peace. Like it or not, but the most incredible civilization that has ever existed in human history was born out of constant conflict, thrived at home from constant conflict abroad enriching ALL...and only started to fade when there was decades, even a century, without a truly dire struggle threatening the homefront. BTW - Am I describing Rome or the US, or the UK, or the Mongols? I think you are TRYING to describe the Mongols, but you need to substitute 'vast' for 'incredible ' in your description.
  12. Nice Houston. Best possible thing that could have happened to Watson
  13. Like the Fournett pick. Good job jville
  14. Haha
  15. In college you're going up against good defensive players but only 1.6% of all college players make it to the NFL. Except at Bama 41% of its starters from 2005-2013 were drafted. From 2010 till now that number would be higher but I don't have time to run down stats.
