      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    to be fast is good
    but fastest with no control
    means all can be lost

    a ghost from the past
    haunting present and future
    legacy systems

    night covers smoothly
    brewing storms between the stars
    bird flies softly still

  1. Reading threads in Sailing Anarchy's Forums constitutes 'stalking' by some anarchists, who clearly know nothing about ocean racing, where 'stealth mode' is a well known strategy used by racers who have an 'ace up their sleeve' as they attempt to out maneuver their competitors. Here in SA, stealth mode translates into stalking supposedly. I'm proud to have received a 'STALKING' notice from webmaster Zapata, when in actual fact, I was just reading the Forums. (I was no slouch on the high seas; ditto here in SA. Stealth, I know.) He's demonstrated he knows nothing about how SA Users follow their favorite topics much less anything about ocean racing. And he sure as shootin' knows squat about stealth. Sad, as the Prez would say.
  2. VOR Leg 6 upset?

    Former director of external affairs for Oracle, Tom Ehman, told the New Zealand Radio Sport on February 10: "There's a bit of a conspiracy theory... Team Brunel has [Kiwi] Peter Burling aboard and is leading right now, and many people think that Team Brunel will end up winning this leg into Auckland just because they've got Peter Burling aboard. "The other notable Kiwi sailor is Blair Tuke; he's on MAPFRE, and I'll bet you anything one of those two boats wins." That was then, this is now, February 22, 2018 1854UTC: TTOP leads! bitter pill for Scallywag MAPFRE swallows hard —Captain Gigi

    Au revoir, sayonara, goodbye, Scot Tempesta (a.ka. @Donald Trump's Cat's Ass). It's been a slice, yes?

    Yeah, I'm starting to understand just why B.J. is so fixated with what I post in the Forums and now on my Blog. Thanks for the Wiki definition.

    For someone who has nothing more to do with the running of the SA website like you said on my blog yesterday, B.J., it seems you do have a lot to say, and most of it convoluted mish-mash. But then you tend to do that, from what I've gathered in most of your posts. You must be a (closet?) Trump supporter. You know, deny, convolute, create falsehoods (a.k.a. lies), etc. I've got your number, babe.

    I said it then, I'll say it again. God Help America.
  12. Any bets on how high a minus CR[a]P score you can generate tonight alone? I've given you lots of ammunition. Blow it out! Watch, @Zapata. They're trying their best, so be easy on them.

    You realize (maybe you don't) that minus CR[a]P scores are for the good guys and gals; plus CR[a]P scores are for the baddies. Of course, I have a sense of humour, in spades. I've been here since May '17, and irritate the b'jeebies out of the baddies, who still try to 'nail' me or 'take me down.' <Ha. Ha. Ha.>
