      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'm still blown away that they have filled up the PHRF fleet! Scot, you have three options: 1. Appeal to World Sailing - I don't see that they can exclude you for "future" assumed conduct on a race course. 76 EXCLUSION OF BOATS OR COMPETITOR 76.1 The organizing authority or the race committee may reject or cancel the entry of a boat or exclude a competitor, subject to rule 76.3 ,provided it does so before the start of the first race and states the reason for doing so. On request the boat shall promptly be given the reason in writing. The boat may request redress if she considers that the rejection or exclusion is improper. 76.2 The organizing authority or the race committee shall not reject or cancel the entry of a boat or exclude a competitor because of advertising, provided the boat or competitor complies with World Sailing Regulation 20, Advertising Code. 76.3At world and continental championships no entry within stated quotas shall be rejected or cancelled without first obtaining the approval of the relevant World Sailing Class Association (or the Offshore Racing Council) or World Sailing 2. Rename the boat (I'm assuming they are trying to exclude you based on advertising - ANARCHY) and have someone else register your boat and be the skip. You then might participate as "rail meat". 3. Maybe don't be a dick. I'm still blown away that they have filled up the PHRF fleet! Scot, you have three options: 1.

  2. Y Isn't that an hour and half ahead of you? Yeah, I was sleeping...
  3. It was at 10:28 my time. 2:17 my tiimme Are you using Newfoundland time, or dead watch time? Nope, Eastern Standard Time... my Newfie friends are actually in their own time zone, an hour and half behind me... makes toasting New Years in Canada more interesting... so 10:28 EST - 11:58 NST. Dead Watch time = GMT or the time when Scot will actually pass and we can finally take over SA?
  4. WTF? Everyone knows April Fools / Poisson d'avril ends at Noon, and that post was made at 12:28 so it doesn't count.
  5. This video has some ideas?
  6. My friends clearly stole my SR>Max and are fixing it up for me!
  7. Has anyone ever thought of trying to work with him to actually make this fellow a better racing instead of watching this nightmare unfold regularly?
  8. What my SR>Max should look like once I fix it and put a proper keel lifting mechanism on it, a sprit and deckstepped carbon mast! I'd have said the new ESSE 650, but the background looks so unSwiss to me. So WHAT IS IT? More photos, might save me the hassle of fixing the SR.
  9. Doesn't everyone follow www.sailinganarchy.de ?
  10. Dear Sir: Please read the terms of use and SA reserves the right to deny membership. With Kind Regards the Lawyers.
  11. Someone please post some builder links... I want one of these to play with.
  12. What were the tag lines again? For M32 Racing - It was getting hard to compete with billionaires, then For M20/24 racing, it was getting hard to compete with millionaires? Yes, this will be another billionaire bloodbath for those who dare try?
  13. Has to be more fun the last LO 300.. I broke 2 flyswatters... Unlike Lake Ontario, we have wind, plenty of it. And if you do want to go for a swim the water is likely warmer in the Bras d'Or than in Lake Ontario. It is certainly cleaner... What kind of boat is Evenflow? What does it rate? Evenflow is a Henderson SR>Max, rates FS 165 and NFS 183 on Lake Ontario. If you recall there was the C&C version SR 21 called Snoopy in Chester(?) a while back. I have wanted to race in Nova Scotia for years now, okay since going to Dal, just needed a portable boat! Anyone got a boat with an interior to actually sleep on?
  14. Looks like more fun than the Lake Ontario 300... maybe next year - tow Evenflow down?
  15. Probably where they "Sound of Music" live was broadcast from? Or is it just big enough for the owner to get that Liberian registration and allow for a suspension of most US regulations.
