      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. You mean float in a bathtub and exist only in your demented mind? Your BulLsHiT doesn't matter.
  2. Nice job of the briefing Clean. Great to see some non soft ball questions in the presser yesterday too. You gotta wonder what poor Barnacle Bill will do if OTUSA take 2 races today. Imagine if TNZ loses the Cup that was so close to their grasp yet again. OTUSA have gained a lot of speed over the break. If they still have more in the tank and TNZ stand still yet again, OTUSA could be faster today. Poor Bill. If OTUSA take both races today TNZ spirit will be broken and Bill will have to hide his head in shame forever. #ShouldhavekeptDean #WillPeterchokeagain?
  3. You should get one of these. And try to beat a 13 yo little girl.
  4. Well then could you tell us why nobody will marry you, hire you, or build actual boats from your toy ideas?
  5. Doug, Let me phrase this in a way that you might understand. We all think you are an iDiOt. Shut up, go buy a UFO, aNd Go SaIlInG, though most of us doubt you know how.
  6. Doug, You long ago proved to everyone here that you are the essence of ignorance and repetitive cut and paste posting of the same drivel. Are you married?
  7. He thinks very highly of himself and likes to hear himself talk about anything and everything. What he means is just like a plane will talk to a pilot saying pull up, pull up, a ship could be taught collision avoidance and talk to its crew saying turn left, flank speed.
  8. Lies, lies and more lies from Doug Lord. Are you married Doug?
  9. You are such an ass. You have a 4 KSB, and can't race to save your life, yet you pontificate endlessly on things you know nothing about. I have sailed the Pulse. Its an accurate review, right down to where he said he wanted a fleet and likes big fleets, yet bought a boat that has no fleet presence except in isolated, once in a blue moon regattas.
  10. There is no indication of any 15 foot anything being build. Just more silly blabbering and toy making. How old are you? Haven't you learned to tell the truth yet? I do see that you have a really good record on that site of endless talking to just yourself. Did you ever read Don Quixote?
  11. Is Doug Lord trying for a record of most posts talking to himself since nobody else will talk to him? I see they finally chased him out of the America's Cup discussion after disproving his ideas so badly. What is Wolf? Is that another toy he built?
  12. Fuck you and your endless drivel and self aggrandizing bullshit. You are the Doug Lord of seafaring and I fear for anyone stupid enough to listen to your spew. Find the book "How to piddle in a puddle" Its the story of your life.
  13. Perhaps you should reword that unless you intended it as the accusation it sounds like?
  14. Gets straight to the facts? Here they are as he claims them: True Wind Angle - 40° True Wind Speed - 20 knots Boat Speed - 18 knots VMG to Windward - 13.79 knots Apparent Wind Angle - 21.1° Apparent Wind Speed - 35.7 knots Boat Speed As % of True Wind Speed (while in ww vmg mode) - 90% Windward VMG as % of True Wind Speed (while in ww vmg mode) - 68.9% Those are Doug Lord kind of claims. Pure fiction and BS; not facts at all. As many others have pointed out his facts make clear he is full of shit and you know it. Just a bit of a hard time? Come on.
  15. Or maybe Tom Kirkman and Doug Lord the same person? They are certainly both full of shit. Mark Twain said "it is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt." Tom, you certainly removed all doubt. God bless your little redneck heart.
