      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. That is more silverware in 4 days then most boats will win all year. That's the reason for racing once a year, no place for the hardware, unless I build a bigger house, that's not happening. I want to down size once the kids are out. Back into retirement until Block 2019
  2. How great would that be, the venue could be having to climb a wall, like in the American Ninja and the a sailboat race
  3. The 4 MH 29's at Block were all taking the weight penalty and 3 of us were sailing with 7, Stout was sailing with 8. The Frac OB was sailing with 8 and not taking the weight penalty, it's pretty tough to get to 1260 with 8, at an average of 157 lbs per person.
  4. The way it should be and easy to police
  5. And that was total BULLSHIT!!!!
  6. I don't see anything wrong with what was done and what happened. The issue I have is if the boat is designed to be sailed with roller furling like a J80, J105, J111, ect there should be no credit given. The credit should only be given to boats that add furling equipment ie: Tartan 30, J30, J29, J35 ect.
  7. The debacle is over!
  8. Oh, and there are people out there who ABUSE IT!
  9. Not much, living the dream, not sailing much and don't care. Pick and choose the events, and go cycling the rest of the time Don't miss the douche bags and cunts on this site How about you?
  10. His loft is in the Mystic CT area, guarantee they will fit. If not he would make it right. There is a service called UPS or Fed X
  11. You will see the divers on Sunday and each day on the north side of the entrance to the pond. They usually put out moorings you can pick up and they will come to you on a first come first serve basis
  12. All of this must have made for a good time drinking mudslides when the race was over. Goo on you 3 for sailing the course you did, if the SI's and what was postedis that ucked up maybe they will fix it now. Yeah even after 80 years.
  13. If the whiner's on this tread took your advise, what would they have to cry about? Get over it, 3 boats sailed what was posted and the rest sailed around the island, a beautiful island by the way. Good practice for race week.
  14. Why don't someone just ask them what course they sailed?
  15. I never had a problem with Fries personally or his sails. He and Will made it personal and decided to end a friendship and business dealings. All I did was treat it as a business deal or like a protest. It's a matter of opinion or view on what you feel is right and you bring it to a higher authority and let them decide. You can't argue he makes fast sails. Kevlar Edge sailed on a winning J27 for years and made the sails. They crushed the class in KW one year You couldn't go wrong with him either
