      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. Here's about 15... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/president-donald-trump-racist-examples_us_584f2ccae4b0bd9c3dfe5566 Huffington Post? Nice sourcing. Please take any of the 15 and use your own mind to make your point. Like this one --- "Trump denied responsibility for the racist incidents that followed his election" What racial incidents? Torturing a mentally challenged white guy in Chicago?
  2. Edited for honest. I have nothing better to do with my life than spend my every waking moment posting about another countries politics. I love arguing bullshit with people i will never meet. What I really want is to feel another mans nut sack bouncing on my chin. Edited for shits and giggles. Yes - I was laughing so hard, I shit myself.
  3. Edited for honest. Are you going to provide any evidence of Trump's racism, or are you going to keep spreading a false narrative? BJ's a brainwashed cunt who gets his marching orders from the Southern Poverty Law Center, but that doesn't make Trump a racist. Please. How is Trump a racist? Just answer the question.
  4. Jesse Jackson has zero credibility. He makes his living exploiting race, and his past support of Trump does not make Trump a non-racist. I'm looking for Trump quotes or actions. Calling someone a "racist" is pretty damn serious.
  5. .....can anyone here provide an instance of his racism? I'd really appreciate it.
  6. BTW - Who coined the term "Fake News"?
  7. All one has to do is look at NYT and Washington Post retractions..
  8. Sears is an antiquated business model that didn't keep up with the times. Sears will die, and Amazon will prosper. Capitalism works. Darwin nailed it.
  9. I'm pretty sure his Sec State will use a "dot.gov" email address. That'd be a good start.in re-establishing integrity. It might even allow us to trust our Government.
  10. The last breath before drowning. Good riddance.
  11. Proof? Dylan Roof. Richard Dear. White, armed, shot people, taken alive. Terence Crutcher. Tamir Rice. Black, unarmed, didn't shoot anyone, shot down in the street. More proof? Black pre-schoolers are 18% of the population; they are 50% of the suspensios. Grades K-12 black students are 3X as likely to be suspended as white students. https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/crdc-discipline-snapshot.pdf This article has a lot of cites for this: http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/at-the-edge/2015/05/06/institutional-racism-is-our-way-of-life Black men are 3X as likely to be searched in a random stop. http://www.reformer.com/stories/racial-profiling-in-vermont,253209 In the workplace, identical resumes with different names got much lower response with "black sounding" names; black names got a 10% response, vs. 25% for white names. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/17/jobs-search-hiring-racial-discrimination-resume-whitening-callbacks How many more do you want? It would be interesting to see how many of those black kids were suspended by black teachers/principals. Or how many of those black people arrested/random searched were done by black cops. Why is that information not included? It would seem very relevant. Or does it not fit the narrative/agenda of those pushing the ideology. WL There comes a time when a High School has to do what is best for the community instead of what is best for the ass-hole who disrupts the the education of others. There WAS a time when schools taught Reading, Writing and Math. A time when we prepared our children to be better than anyone else in the world. Now we are teaching our kids to be average. Except for BJ, and his kids. I really don't understand why you progressives aren't all over his shit. I would love to hear why the Porters can home-school from Tahiti and have a voice in the Common Core debate?
  12. Thanks for that report, presumably hot off the presses. You are welcome, Ben. I'd like to see a serious response beyond challenging my sobriety.
  13. "Fake News" is the last shit progressives invented to obfuscate going down on a worthless cunt. Edit - Just sayin'
  14. No. I read that Germany may fine Facebook for "Fake News" http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/28/germany-may-fine-facebook-522000-for-any-fake-news-story/
  15. I try to be charitable where I can. Thank you for appreciating it. I appreciate your humor, Ben, and always have.
