      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. Always used to get a kick outta the Alma moving a shit ton of water out of the way.
  2. Sheesus Max...did you even see the topic heading? The post was asking if Rags was in Newport these days. I really didn't notice the rest of the story...
  3. My best guess is that all three have met a fair amount of plastique of some sort, at some time. However, my sincerest attaboy's goes to the Doc who took care of the fair lass on the right. I would like to see more of his obviously fine work.
  4. I've always loved that boat...does she live in Newport now?
  5. WSD was/is a Carl Schumacher design and as I recall was built, or at least finished out, in or around Alameda as well, although I may be mistaken. I do remember the owner was a youngish guy (in the early '80's) Jim Robinson in the Bay Area. Chris (buttface) Corlett campaigned the boat for him for a couple years and they did pretty well.
  6. In the general vain of the subject, I was waiting in a line of traffic stopped at a light. I had left space between me and the car in front as there was an entrance to a grocery store on my right, and it drives me batchit when folks stop in front of drives so people can't turn in or pull out. Well. directly behind me a woman starts slamming her horn. I look back in the mirror and she's screaming and motioning me to pull forward. The light turns green and before the line starts to move I move forward, and here's this little blue haired old woman, leaning on her horn and as she turns in the lot gives me not one, but a two fisted finger. What really blew my shorts was the bumper sticker on her car.... I followed her into the parking lot, to see for myself if she was really the old whithered libtard asshole that I assumed she was. She wouldn't get out of her car and was either phoning the cops or her gun toting son-in-law. I hate assholes and bumper stickers.
  7. BBS...breeze up a bit...on a Frers 40 something going up the breeze and powering through to leeward of a smaller X-yacht. The owner driver of the X was a gal, fairly nice looking and fairly good at driving. She seemed a bit upset we were getting so close to her to leeward and letting us know about it in no uncertain graphic terms. We're all hiked out with legs crossed and fairly quiet except for her harangue bouncing between the two boat's sails in close proximity. When out of the blue one of our dearest trimmers let's loose with Shut up and Gargle my balls!
  8. I thought I remembered the Kite as a double bottom, open transom, dagger board boat about that size and shape, but with a fiberglass mast way up in the bow area a la Finn. What kina boat am I thinking of?
  9. I had to use the java tracker...the HML beta tracker wouldn't load for me either. But I'm only pinging about 42 of the competitors, so not so sure how good either system is.
  10. Is it my lame assed computer or is about half the fleet not pinging on the tracker?
  11. The whole three parts are still cached on Google. Interesting (kinna) read, seems the OP did get fucked...but I can certainly see why it was jerked from the FP and forums...the "bad guy" was not only identified by name, but phone numbers, email addresses and current (supposed) employment. Sure he was none too happy to have his name bandied about.
  12. Barient Treadmaster -- everywhere White Line 7 Flattening reefs Sercel Syledis in Freo Hydraulics -- everywhere Hydraulic fluid -- everywhere Trumpet poles
  13. Is the thought that it's going to be widely distributed, Keith? Or do you think we're going to be able to rent it on Netflix...etc? The trailers are great...really looking forward to seeing the film.
  14. Something has got to be up with the Swampfire for $6,500 than just some soft spots in the deck.
  15. Looks like they fit Vetra up with a new"ish" elliptical rudder too. Nice job!!
