      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.

  2. Great see you all there
  3. It's that time again......I haven't been to SA since this ended last Lear but who is in to do it again?
  4. Anyone interested?
  5. I forget but I still owe him his winnings
  6. Are we going to do this again this year?
  7. Are we doing this again this year?
  8. LOL I was going to mention that too but figured all the non SF types would flip out. Toughest fleet ever to compete in. The names in the Eltoro fleet read like a who's who list of racers. It's freaking amazing who you end up racing against in that group.just curious, who races in this fleet?Gordie Nash, buzz Blackett, will Pakistan, John amen, Fred Paxton off the top of my head I just got done rebuilding a old Toro.....I'll let my son sail it but I might take on the fleet when he isn't looking.. I'm sure I'll get spanked but I'm also sure learn a shitload. My sons Toro has A Dewit sail and we will use it for a bit but who should I look to when it's time to upgrade?
  9. I'd like to think that, by now if now Scooter wanted to ban you he would have by now. It's just a fuckup that happened when the site was upgraded. Let it go, we know who you are. Rise above it and give us that you-tube footage! It a moot point I stayed longer visiting with an old friend (just couldn't stand to say good by) than I planned and didn't make it by the ?boat?.
  10. Humm I still have a original SA clown shirt never worn I should give it to Hot Rod in exchange for a interview....
  11. I'm heading over that way to visit a good friend who is sick ( her and her husband were OYRA presidents in the mid 90's and the Spin Cup was their idea) I will be stoping by the ?boat? and taking some pictures and will post a report......If Scooter wants it here he knows what to do...
  12. Once again I'll make an offer......let me know the launch date and I'll take some pictures and video. But and this is a big but for Scooter I will only post them as War Dog!!!
  13. Hey I owe someone 10.00 PM me so I can pay up!! Dang I sucked at the end of the season sailing got in the way....
  14. You want pictures? You want a person to attempt to get a interview and some questions answered? Get Ed to FREE WAR DOG.....and it will be done!!! But not until WD can post the above pictures and interview........
  15. We are waiting!!! :D/> It was a hell of a party.....I was a bit late getting there after a long day of sailing so we didn't stop by the monster to get a look.
