      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  1. Will you answer Trumps call to arms? Will you respond to tyranny? Are you with Trump or with Hillary? I will buy bullets in response to tyranny, and fight to the death for my country whilst you are sucking Hillary's dick Healthcare, education, gay marriage, minimum wages, gun control If you think that's tyranny and you need to get a gun, you are what's wrong with gun owners. The Government forces me to buy health insurance simply because I exist. The Fed creates so many regulations that educational administrative costs have grown 5 times as much as paying teacher payroll. I was in favor of gay marriage years before Obama and Hillary, Minimum wage? I'm in my early 50's and as a 15 yo kid living at home, my parents didn't expect me to make a "living wage" and move out of the house. I washed dishes, FFS. Take your "gun control" to the inner cities where "gun control" has made a fucking difference to minorities. Keep perpetuating the myths. They certainly will be `myths' under Trump.
  2. Trump's rhetoric in this last speech is classic manipulation of people's fear. He is saying to the NRA it's all sooo bad that you'll need your guns. Next stop Muslims, mexicans and round and round we go.
  3. So what was trump referring to when he said the 2nd amendment folk could take out Hillary? Sped, time to stop imaging what you think he meant and start listening to what he actually said.Trump's Facebook post from about 20 minutes ago:https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10157468006525725&id=153080620724&__tn__=*s What he said was not on Facebook 20 minutes ago. That is simply damage control. He called for 2nd amendment folk to take matters int their own hands. He called for the assasination of Hillary. Not very bright, are you sped? Even if there was a potential interpretation along the lines of the fantasy you're whacking off to, Trump immediately put it to bed with an unambiguous clarification. Sorry to disappoint you, there's no call to arms. You cannot clarify something with a simple lie.
  4. Will you answer Trumps call to arms? Will you respond to tyranny? Are you with Trump or with Hillary? I will buy bullets in response to tyranny, and fight to the death for my country whilst you are sucking Hillary's dick Healthcare, education, gay marriage, minimum wages, gun control If you think that's tyranny and you need to get a gun, you are what's wrong with gun owners.
  5. “By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.” Trump from his speech He's cognisant that she will have been elected and there is nothing you can do…. although the Second Ammendment people, maybe there is , I don't know. "I said pro-2acitizens must organise and get vote to save our Constitution!" Trump on FB No you didn't you apricot hell beast.
  6. You must have a really tiny dick. What, you don't like my bumper stickers? You forgot that one that says "honk if you think I'm a dickhead'
  7. You must have a really tiny dick.
  8. Killing Hillary is voluntary. What the fuck? When did it get ok for another candidate to suggest that? Dabs, lay the fuck off your whack job Killery bullshit. I think it is some of you on the left that are implying that is what Trump is inferring? I believe Trump is trying to encourage 2nd Amendment folks to vote for him, not to kill anybody. Then you have no comprehension skills whatsoever.
  9. Killing Hillary is voluntary. What the fuck? When did it get ok for another candidate to suggest that? Dabs, lay the fuck off your whack job Killery bullshit. It's representative of how low brow politics is becoming. Jerry Springer would be proud.
  10. He wasn't insuating they vote.
  11. No spin needed. As usual, you fools are wetting your pants over nothing. Since the 2nd Ammendment does not protect a right to commit murder, it's pretty damn obvious to anyone with more than 2 functioning neurons that he was calling on defenders of the 2A to unite and help make sure she doesn't get elected. Sheesh. Just watching lefties piss themselves for the next 4 years is reason enough to vote for Trump. Whilst you may pass his comments off as facetious there are plenty of extremists out there who worship Trump and his support of the 2a and would see his speech as sanctioning the use of a guns to advance their beliefs.
  12. It's kind of like a thought crime. “By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
  13. and anecdotally... boy buys gun.
  14. Ya know, you might be paranoid. Not at all - and you know that there are plenty of published examples that prove my point. I'm not really up on paranoia. Perfect
  15. That's gross Tongue kissing a fish, I mean.
