      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. God bless all who post on this thread! Amen to that
  2. Yes, admittedly, like my friend Will, aka swimmer, I'm not a sailor(tho I was in a sunfish once, heheh) but I do look forward to taking a ride out with those who would have me.... I want you all to know that I packed out of Catherines apt in Voorheesville. I have returned to my home in Mahopac NY to get back to work, pay my bills and also to give her family the space they need. With a little luck our dear MSG will be returning to her home soon. Her mom says they are working on making it happen this week! At that time, her sister and family and caregivers will be there and so the time had come for me to move on after being there since september. Leaving was anything but easy yet the time had come. Her family knew it before i did but was too kind to say anything since they truly are grateful for the time I spent there. Catherine also understands and knows I will be back to visit. I'm not done here yet either so count on my 2 cents from time to time. Rockhead my brother, I too was very bummed that I didnt get to meet you and the pebble on saturday but I was so thrilled to see what an incredible day Catherine enjoyed with all of you. It was obviously priceless... I wish all of you the best of health for you and yours! Type to you soon! sending out PEACE LOVE & STRENGTH dtm
  3. As was visit from Bowgirl and KevMccabe!! xo
  4. maybe someone can post this to kaptain korn thread for me? feel free....
  5. naturally
  6. Yo Yo Yo! What up gang? Got some photos for you of the newly improved Kaptain Korn.... He still needs some healing time before traveling on tho... As per Catherines request I performed an ostomy on the poor bastard. She also tattooed her surgery scar on his belly and tagged him with an MSG! here is a wide angle and a close up.... Cath slept most of the day so we are chillin out now in the dayroom/lounge and eating and munching sugary things. Today is the bday of another caregiver we have befriended here and we had cake and brownies! Visit from Sol and Elle was fanfuckingtastic! Anarchists represent!!! love y'all PEACE
  7. Hey Y'all! Wow! once again, thanks for all the support and deep love. Its a hard time but you've all made it full of love and praises.... Last night I went up to visit with wondermutt Zeke and we had a nice chill with her outside under the stars and planets. Jupiter, Venus, Mars.... Purty. Cath was very excited and happy to see and pet mr muttley and he was happy to see her and he let out quite a few uncharacteristic howls. Deep and soulful. It was awesome. We went back upstairs and listened to a few dead songs off youtube. Stella Blue, Brokedown Palace and Box of Rain. I left her in the capable hands of her mom and sis and came home and slept for 11 hours and still wanting/needing more. Cath has been open to seeing folks so if ya wanna swing by its cool, but be prepared to have to wait down the hall while she preps, mentally emotionally, whatever... She DID say she wants to see people tho.... This morning she met with one of her good poet pals Dennis Sullivan. They went thru alot of her work and chose pieces for publication in a book that Dennis will compile. Her sister tells me that really reminded her who she is and was also a great cathartic process. She is planning a party to be thrown in her honor but yesterday she decided she'd like to be there for it. Sort of like a 'living funeral' where the honoree gets to hear all the wonderful things people say about them. I guess thats happening here a bit already. I agree its fucked up to eulogize prematurely but should we ever wait to tell anyone how awesome we think they are? Hell NO!! Yeah, so I dont know what else to say but thanks to all of you. Elle yer bewb is, as someone noted, not only gorgeous but a most fitting tribute! Thanks for that! : ) Sol, thanks for making the masses aware of our current situation. I couldnt quite find the words and hadnt gotten the 'all clear' go ahead from MSG yet. I'm so glad she gave you the word. One of the many things I have learned in the past 6 months here is let people tell their own story in their own time. Whew. Again, very glad she wants everyone on the same page now. Maybe I am in denial but since it has been my job here for half a year to be 'mr positive' I still refuse to believe all hope is gone. Expect Miracles. Why the fuck not?? I cant begin to tell you how exhausting this is for all of us. Bob, Dan and so many of you know exactly what I'm talking about. I just need to say thanks again tho bcuz whenever we needed strength, Y'all have been there. Color me eternally grateful talk soon PEACE-LOVE-STRENGTH-MUSIC Daniel
  8. I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum for this but really this is the only thread on SA that I feel a part of.... So, I know I mentioned the passing of a dear friend of mine about a week ago.... His name was rcrdplyr. lol. I mean, really his name was Jaik Miller. He was a wonderful person but also an incredibly gifted singer/songwriter who was part of the nyc music scene for over 25 years! We had guitar picks printed in time for his service that said JAIK LOVES YOU as a tribute... Aside from all the other great songs he wrote over the years, here is an awesome little rocker performed by him solo acoustic. Its brought me great joy groovin to it the past 10 days. Its called "my name is rcrdplyr" and I really hope y'all like it! I'm sending this out to the strugglers, the caregivers, the survivors and the survived. JAIK LOVES YOU PEACE STRENGTH & LOVE Dan
  9. TBone, so sorry for your loss. Sending love out to you and Christians whole family of loved ones and friends. Remember the stories you hear over the next few days. You will cherish them forever. be strong PEACE & LOVE Daniel- (just another stranger who cares)
  10. Yes, thank you all again for the kind words. MSG never even read my post she just heard that I'd posted something about her and asked me to remove it. She will tell her own story in her own time. What she did not know was that most of what I had written was about my own hard time having lost a dear friend just yesterday and feeling at a loss of strength. I'm writing it again now just to let ya know that yes as Rockhead intuited, Im feeling useless. Fortunatly Catherines family is here and near to help pick up the slack... Thanks again all and especially Rockhead, you obviously know because you know. much love and blessings for all PEACE Dan
  11. earlier post removed by request of MSG
  12. Catherine shows Zeke her favorite website (S.A.): Zeke wonders why there isnt more food on the SA site: Nap time:
  13. Hey Y'all! Thanks for the love and inquiries for updates.... Catherine is doing quite well she is just constantly fatigued and achy so you can understand if she is not in the typing and blogging mood... Round 8 starts tomorrow! We are making good progress and I am very encouraged.... 2/3s done or something like that.... Another ct scan scheduled for feb 9th and we should have an update a week after that... In case anyone wants to join in, the mantra is "NOTHING BUT GOOD NEWS" whenever we are headed to a dr appt... It works when I take my dad and his broken ankle to the doc also.... ok, thanks again folks PEACE Daniel
  15. chillin this morning up on the ridge
