      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. Just sent you a PM.
  2. Looks like it was a Hall made in the Netherlands and shipped over with the boat new. Not sure what the economics of that is.
  3. Does anyone know who manufactures the Carbon Spars for the J122? Seldon, Sparcraft? Pretty sure it was made in Europe. I am looking for a Jib Sheave block. Thanks
  4. Why, if it perceived as a dog, it will stymie sales? If I were J boats I would have Jimmy Spithill sailing it this weekend. I have never seen 1 race result change a PHRF rating.
  5. I see one is entered in the Sail For Hope in Newport this weekend. The rating is 87.
  6. 1.029= 75 PHRF?
  7. Curious ,what is the price tag? I don't see it discussed in this thread.
  8. I was told at the Newport Boat Show probably around 89. Said they have not raced the boat yet.
  9. You got any numbers for a J122 for that chart? Just wondering what the Plane is?
  10. We race against one this weekend in a Pursit race. They made up their handicap time in the first 5 miles upwind in a 28 mile course against the whole class. They even overstood the mark and still managed to catch everone. What does that tell you? It tells me Bear Hovey was probably sailing with them And that is against one that was smashed on rocks the day before and keel wasn't in optimum shape upwind. I know what you are thinking! Nice show you put on in front of us..did kite survive? espo, bear wouldn't last a day on that boat The kite is OK,..... Yea crooked keel, overstands the mark and still makes up their handicap in no time. Time to trade my boat.........

  12. Seriously!!! GO THE FUCK AWAY you fucking bible troll! Just because you read some book of make believe stories, and were stupid enough to believe them, or stupid enough to believe some whore named Mary DIDN'T cheat on her husband Joe with some dude named Gabriel with his 18 - 36 inch rocks at full mast, doesn't mean any of us give half a flying fuck what you think, or care that you don't approve of what we like to discuss, look at, or masturbate to! --I apologizes to the rest of you for the run on sentence, but I do that when I'm mad-- Why don't you and Bull Gator have a circle jerk with fucking sunglasses on how awesome it would be to suck Tim Tebow's dick while he serenades the two of you to his rendition of Our God is An Awesome God. If you want to be religious, fine by me, but keep that shit to yourself Asshole!!! Oh, and stay out of this thread, Shay's thread, or any thread with "Friday" in the title, and we may just be able to tolerate your existence... Oh, if you are confused by what I mean by Shay's thread, that is the Tight Jeans thread dedicated to what I like to think of as General Anarchy's Cheer Leader Shay Loren that you have defaced with your babble. Hey, that was pretty good.
  13. You guys are ruining a perfectly good thread.
  14. Watch that downhill run again. Any girl that can get down the hill like that is a 10 in my book any day. Just because she has bad taste in men doesn't hurt the rating.
