      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

    Read the book for fucks sake.
  1. And whilst I am out of the drawer, let me add the thanks of the many socks that you 'let through to the keeper' BJ. On behalf of the Coalition of Unidentified Nautical Trolling Sockpuppets (or 'C.U.N.T.S' as we prefer to be called) we thank you for our continuing existence. Bless you my child.
  2. Point break my child that is harsh! Sock puppets are people too you know. They have feelings like other people. Their feelings are a little more easerly hurt than most, obviously.
  3. Not all socks are used for evil my child...
  4. G.O.D.* You called my child?
  5. 'Never threatened anyone? And I thought I worked in mysterious ways....
  6. You wish to make fun of Jesus? A few of the old ' would you mind crossing your legs we only have one nail left' jokes?
  7. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth my child?To defend a child (that you have never met nor will ever meet) from some gentle ribbing on a niche forum you are willing to risk a aggravated assault felony charge, a attempted murder charge or getting your butt kicked by somebody? Tis a troubled world.
  8. My child you would happily 'knock someone out' for what they post on here? Would you just sucker punch them or do you believe you can knock anyone out? Chill my child for it is I who is the toughest Motherfucker the Internet has ever seen.
  9. And it hurt to Tom... Bent and I are nothing alike- I don't pretend to have someone on ignore then fuck up and reply sometimes and I don't post 1000's of words each day, pedantically and tediously debating miniature like a spoilt entitled private schoolgirl with mild tourettes. May I quote you my child? Elder Bent can now respond whilst still pretending that he doesn't read your posts. Amen.
  10. Really?? Let me know when that happens. It shouldn't be hard to miss hundreds of thousands of ex-catholic schoolboys dancing in the streets over a priest's death. OTOH, I suspect that will not be the case and that a priest being beheaded is likely the LAST thing these victims would want. Unlike our current adversary - we do not live in the 7th century and we've moved on a bit from that type of barbarism as well as the celebration of said barbarism. I can't say that for some like those in Palestine who seems to take great joy in the mass deaths of Americans on 9/11. My point in all this being that your stance that "well Christianity did it too a long time ago" is such complete and utter BS! I'm not particularly religious and certainly not Catholic. But that old argument that "well, they did it too" is the mark of a weak or biased mind. Yeah, they did do it too...... like a thousand years ago. Western religions and society have matured a bit in that time. Do they not get credit for that??? Or will they be branded with that forever? However, many (not all) islamic cultures and religious aspects ARE in fact still operating in the 7th century. They have not matured at the same rate as the west. That is simply fact. I was chatting with a Swiss heart surgeon and his wife who live in KSA right now while on a dive trip a couple of weeks ago. He's the director of setting up some of their major Cardio and research hospitals throughout the kingdom. He comes into contact with and socializes with some high ups in the gov't on a regular basis. He told me one minister explained to him point blank one day that KSA was mentally and emotionally, at best, still in the 1400s. And given what I know of the culture, they are working half days to catch up. Personally, I don't think that this "clash" is really a clash of religions as much of it is a clash of culture and civilizations. I think that religion only really comes into play because it is interwoven into their society unlike the west. I think religion is just the most prominent face of this clash. The jihadists would LIKE to make it about religion, but ultimately its not. Ok well I may have gone overboard a bit but a close friend of mind was abused by a Christian brother and he was persecuted for speaking out at the time and hung out to dry by the church. He wishes a sticky end to all preists. He feels the ones that won't admit to the churches wrong doing are no less guilty than the cunt who sodimized him as a 12 year old. I didn't go to a Catholic Church school but abuse was rampant at my school ( church of england) as well. Luckly I was not abused ( too big and ugly I suspect) but the scars remain with many who were to this day and it is only now some 40 years later the school is fessing up to its past. For many it has come too late. The behaviour of the Vatican in protecting the australian cardinal Pell from facing the music is a fucking disgrace. They care far more about the protection of their evil empire than the protection of the victims. Maybe my rant belongs in a different thread but ALL religions are evil. Every one of them. I agree that we have moved on from the 14 century. It is simply beyond me how ANY intelligent person can believe in sky faries - of any flavour. But let me be clear. I do not hate all Muslims or all Christians at all. Only the ones that promote the lies. I am happy to let belivers practice their beliefs, however on some levels I pity their gullibility. Good lord! Can one resign as ones sock puppet?
  11. Thy kingdom come, thy butt hurt done. On earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
  12. Just wait you cunts. I work in fucking mysterious ways.
  13. Not very Christian of you for Christ's sake Lilly.Jesus would have never used the `C` word. He always said `pussy` when a sentence called for it.My child Jesus loves the word. As indeed do I. Some cunt changed the scriptures at some point - they were littered with the word. 'pick up you bedding and walk you lazy cunt' used to be my favourite. Why do you think I gave you owners wife your only asset- your money maker.
  14. LB shall prevail my child. He has me watching over him.Jfc's Pop, STFU why doncha.You could get a half full jar of Vegemite out of this if you play your cards right. All knowing. . . Pffffft ! Jesus fucking Christ. That's the last time I will give you pack of cunts my only son. Ungrateful arseholes. Amen.
  15. LB shall prevail my child. He has me watching over him.
