      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. Is that a self description. Very honest and succinct of you I must say. Well done Tosser.
  2. + one gazillion billion.
  3. You Yanky Doodles should have voted for a real man like DC to be the President, rather than the dumb arse you got and deserve. Your pussy would be far happier I bet.
  4. Would not mind a government hand out to see off fucking Sky Tv and their extortionate rates to view the event live.
  5. Just recently I grew a pair and watched replays all of the AC 34 races. in my view it rates as one of the best cup events ever. Those magnificent men in their flying machines were breaking all sorts of new ground physically, mentally and technology wise. Thought JS was simply brilliant and regardless of the cheating accusations that are historically all part and parcel of this event thank fuck the Poisened Chalice did not make it's way back to Auckland. Bermuda looks like a great location and I just hope the wind gods bless the event with reliable breezes. Only a few more sleeps.....
  6. Fark ,what about anything but 2013.
  7. Damned cunning design I say. Set and retrieve your anchor off the stern, simply brilliant. Ultra high strength magnetic mainsheet transponder thingy from dodger top to boom,no more messy ropes is a cracker of a idea. Bow is so fine hence no room for a double grunter. Great ,no humpy pumpy equals no kids equals oh happy days. The power of the human mind never ceases to amaze me.
  8. Most notorious metal boat in NZ. Scott Watson's home built Blade. Intro to full documentary.
  9. For solo flyers like BS the future is always going to be a expansive field of lonely bitter chaos. Angry single lonely men are a dime a dozen in any anchorage universally. Bobs and most other posts generally show happy smiley friendly communicative constructive and very talented creative people. We are all primarily here on this site because we are sea creatures expressing the ebb and floods of our opinions and objectives. BS will always be BS. He will not listen learn then progress and therefore grow from these discussions as the most of us do.
  10. Young Nick , S&S again from the same year. Sadly both these cracking minter yachts have been on the market for some considerable time. http://sparkmanstephens.blogspot.co.nz/2011/04/design-2035-young-nick.html
  11. Kishmul , Sparkman And Stephens One Tonner.
  12. Fark, that is absolutely stunning workmanship. You should clad the hull in Mylar and have a see through hull. What a horrendously expensive , needlessly complex waste of time and money, especialy since my boats have over nearly 4 decades, proven such framing to be meaningless, as have French aluminium boats. Priscilla is an appropriate name for Denis Connor.[/quote The Big Den is a global sailing legend and you dickhead are a nothing. Fuck off you wanker. What you call as a expensive needless waste of time and money is in fact a finely designed and crafted work of art. Your pig ugly floating turds are not and never will be in the same league. Go wack off in some quiet bay and leave your purial vitriol spattered across your own face fuckwit.
  13. Fark, that is absolutely stunning workmanship.You should clad the hull in Mylar and have a see through hull.
  14. That piece of metal running down the centre of that keel ,serves no useful function whatever. Yup, just like you BS, no useful function whatever. Brent why do you bang on endlessly in such a negative small dick way. No body here gives a fuck about you or your pig ugly floating tin spawn and your lifes legacy will amount to zip. Now do us all a favour and piss off.
  15. " Colvin estimates 1,000 hours for a hull and deck, something I have done in 90 hours working mostly alone. At shop rates that is huge saving, highly economical." BS you are a fantasist of biblical proportions. .
