      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.

    Sailing. I shot a man in Reno.. Just to watch him die..
  1. It looks like a rotary diesel fuel pump..
  2. IOR AND MORC died for a reason..
  3. Dive... dive .. dive...come to a depth of just the top of the mast is visable
  4. looks like Emperor Norton...
  5. If somebody got sick or diarea.. It would blend into the paint job...
  6. WTF abomination of a camo job was that supposed to blend in with? it wasnt meant to blend in.. When a submarine saw the ship at a distance.. They couldnt get wheather it was coming or going.. Or where the ship really was or speed.. So they couldnt get a good bearing to fire off a torpedo.. Was the claim of the dazzle paint job.
  7. I had a faryman in lois lane when i bought it.. They make a good anchor..actually they wont even make a good anchor.. They will rust out from the inside out..
  8. Those containers got to expensive.. So now its sail to America
  9. it is reported to be in britain someplace.. And no.. It never was a MORC boat.. But did race under MORA.. Thats any boat less than 31 ft and was PHRF.
  10. Dee Smith is mentally handicapped..they do recognize a dumbfuck as a handicap... Dee Smith is about as handicap as a plastic bag.. Its sad that anybody who isnt really disabled is trying to explain how hurt he is.. I bet ol dee even has a handicap placard in his car.. You think if we just ignored him that he would just go away?
  11. looks like the guy protesting hasnt read the rule about being a member in good standing with any recognized yacht club.. Or the pesky part of filing a protest in a timely manner
  12. . He sold it along time ago.. Going through at least two new owners..one back in north Carolina..broke..then last I heard Farr owned it..
  13. Olson30 is a good light air boat.. Is light weight and has good sail area. You can use a 155% or a longer penalty pole .. You don't want a boat that you can't use a genoa.. Like the newer designed boats.
  14. Chuck Burns still has a web site. When I talked to him a while back he was easy to get hold of. Skidoo is a cold molded one off with a flush deck. Last I heard it's in Europe still racing. It is not the same as a wilderness. If you want a lot of info of the wilderness 30 Dave hodges sailed on one quite abit . You can get hold of him at Santa Cruz sails. The boats never really took off and when the express 27s hit the market in 82 , you never heard of the wilderness being built. I know that they had a foam problem on some of the boats.. Can't remember what size. Where the foam just turned to sawdust in the hull. But that problem was resolved. They had the 21. The 30 and 40. There is a 40 hull .. No deck sitting down at Moores in watsonville ,ca.. I believe Gary Mull designed the 40.. About a year ago there was one of those for sale in Southern California. But you don't see the 30s for sale.. At least on the west coast. But talk to hodges. If he doesn't know.. He will know somebody who does. Best of luck..
  15. Isn't that like buying a car with no wheels or tires, and think you could do the Indy 500? There are the stupid and then there is the unrealistic.
