      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. Kim and Bob - FL is a real gem. Looking forward to the final splash test and your report on her first outing. Good luck!
  2. But, but, but - that mold is covered and looks quite lonely in that big old warehouse. When is the unveiling? Pat
  3. Yes, first time I've come accross her. A beauty for sure. Pat
  4. Since I'm in withdrawal for an update, and in need of a thread to hijack - we'll give this a try. Bob - is this one of your's?
  5. Flip it over, Cherie, so she's holding it up, tits out EXACTLY! Then she would be looking at ND the autopilot and distracting the kid in the dinghy. The spec is for her to play winky winky with ND the relaxing client under the house. We are working to a spec, right?
  6. Bob, head knocker bad - study good - yes. More data and we try again. Pat
  7. How about just under the house overhang. Need to have Port and Starboard versions with the head just slightly turned to keep an eye on ND. Yes, I know - the art is terrible. Pat
  8. If ND wants the lady looking in, she can be sitting sideways on the coaming, with her arm on the outside and hair flowing around the head and arm to block any line from catching. Her other arm could be placed on her hip with an opening to form the hand hold. She would need to be about four hands tall to make the hand hold substantial enough to withstand use and the tail could be curled underneath her with only the fluke extending inside over the coaming so there is minimal intrusion on that comfortable space. Alternatively, she could cap the coaming by laying sideways against it and the hand hold could be accomplished with a finger hole opened in the coaming. If she is held close to the flow of the coaming the toe stubber potential should be minimized.......maybe? Just a thought.... Pat
  9. Well after a bit of Google - this Mermaid Gig is not so easy - you guys have your work cut out for you, While I expected something like the one on the left, the circular treatment is a surprisingly interesting twist on the theme.
  10. Done? Or, Bob, you could offer up your alternatives so the taunting can begin. Pat
  11. That pole barn thing works other places as well. In the county around a small town where my mother lived, they did not allow mobile homes. So a smart fellow built a pole barn and then storred two mobile homes inside it. Went up fast, satisfied the planners, and the trailers never had that ping, ping, ping sound when it rained. Pat
  12. This looks like the "End of the beginning". Fantastic!
  13. Does that cove stripe go against a bright red backgound or a crisp white one? He asks with the grin of a kid in a candy store.
  14. So for a perfect marriage you need something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. You got the old now, and lots of new, what's borrowed - oh yes, the mast and the rudder - that leaves us with, what gets to be blue? Very nice shape, those ports be. But Kim it's kind of difficult to believe that both you and Bob agreed to add weight to Sliver. The romance of this decision is going to make a great scene in the movie. Pat
  15. Russel's nester is a great looking boat and she sounds like an able tender. Since other dinghy options mentioned are not nesters, I would think part of her advantage would be a much smaller storage requirement when it's too rough for her on the davits. Catari is certainly a treat to the eyes. Thanks very much for sharing the development process. Pat
