      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. I work at a sign shop and we always have off cuts of the actual whiteboard vinyl, and i make little race course boards with off cuts of other plastics and some thin clear lexan or plexi for a cover with pieces of velcro to hold it closed. I usually give a bunch of little vinyl dots of usual mark colours with it as gifts to fellow racers that i like.{ I would add a pic just that they are all in the boats under snow}
  2. Something to do with a string drop?
  3. There is an app for that called transparent screen for Android ,not sure if Apple has one but sorry no alarms for posts
  4. Antrim 27, We sail ours with 4-5 and have even done well with 2, mind you we aren't small boys by any means
  5. They do have cleats but some of them snapped in half along with some concrete dockshttps://www.facebook.com/leon.woody.1/videos/10154449015921081/
  6. Sorry y'all bailed early Friday. Never got the chance for a proper introduction. Too bad SA doesn't have a real FP, cause your logo would be perfect FP material, especially the outboard with quad exhaust pipes. Nice touch! Maybe next year...PS great sailing LC Dart, and Brad... Thanks for the beer, the crab was frigin spectacular. Thursday was the most awesome evening ever! WIRW.. Another great job. And how about OHYC... Amazing. Great food, lots of smiles, excellent. For those that passed, yea wind was marginal, but all else was surperb. You missed a good one. Let's make it happen next year Which boat were you on?j90x Ah! "The Mud Hen"

  8. BAD DOG will be there saturday afternoon!
  9. It was trash not ass, don't ask me how I know ( I've never touched white electrical tape)
  10. Caution foiling rocks ( in a yellow diamond to look like the street sign)
  11. 3m wrap vinyl wraps will last longer than 5 years but are warranted for 5 years to be removed without peeling the "paint" underneath, or leaving large amounts of glue, or coming off in "palm sized pieces". If you are going to get a wrap done hire a 3m Preferred Installer and use 3m products to get the warranty, and if you just want a solid color instead of a printed graphic, they have a product called "1080" and it comes in quite a few colors and finishes ,matte, gloss, pearl, carbon, and brushed (you probably want gloss for the smoothness factor) the ink in printed vinyl is more than likely going to last more than 5 years but if you don't take it off in 5 years you are going to have a bitch of a time getting it off. It is really easy to put on when you know what your doing so don't think the installer is over charging you if you can't put a bumper sticker on without a bubble in it. (I am 3m trained but not 3m preferred)
  12. Just trying to figure out if it was one of the many that have been in penticton
  13. What hull number is this boat?
  14. Break out the 105's were going planing
