      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. When we moved to the bay in August 2011 we brought out 36 from long island sound. Giant hassle filled with incompetence and it was late sept. before the boat was ready to go. Being from LIS with the warm light breezes and lots and lots of night sails we didn't think much of it -- our first plan was to take the boat out sail about. Anchor. grill some steaks. and it all went super. and then we night sailed all over the bay in maybe 8-10knts of breeze. The SF waterfront. out the gate. Supremely beautiful. boat Little did we know that was like the very last friggin time it would blow under 20. .
  2. yes, but what defines a liveaboard in Newport? I have a primary residence and will just be staying 3 days a week. No different than staying on boat on weekends back in the bay. Just that my weekend happens to be mon-wed.
  3. So, I've just started commuting 3 days a week to Irvine from the SF Bay. It occurred to me that instead of staying in a hotel 3 nights a week this is an opportunity to cure my current boatlessness (I sold my most recent beloved in May after 25 years of ownership.) so who can tell me what the deal is in Newport beach for not quite living aboard? And who are the reputable boat brokers?
  4. What boggles my mind is that urea injection is cheap and incredibly effective. My BMW diesel uses it -- $16 per 10k miles. And it allows BMW to tune the engine for monster HP and torque. wtf volkswagen decided not to use it is astoundingly bad engineering decision making.
  5. I started wearing a helmet on the bow a couple years ago. I got hit right in the temple with a jib clew ring. It wasn't even that windy. we were going up from the 3 to the 1 and the jib they sent me was a high cut 2 for the furler. basically a reacher. I hoisted the bitch -- took one look at it -- and gave my best WTF look to the clowns in back. Thats when it bit me. Got a nice little concussion. Didn't think that much of it -- till I had to use the GPS to find my way home. and when I got home I walked into a dark room and just fell over and hit the floor. Will it stop a boom? No way. But its better than nothing.
  6. Bought a 99S in 04. Just sold a company and was looking at a used 911. Liked the 911 a lot. Loved the Boxster S. In that era it handled noticeably better. And already had more power than it needed. Zero maintenance issues. If you are secure in your Johnson, you are buying a sports car from Porsche. You are deciding between raw power and exceptional handling. Right now if I was in the market I would be looking at a used Audi R8. They are becoming affordable used, and are way too cool. Like Iron Man cool.
  7. ask her if she can get you pot off the res. then get her busted for distribution. that'll show her.
  8. take this shit to Facebook where it belongs.
  9. 1977 Cadillac Deville or Lincoln Town Car! Something that formerly pulled an airstream around Arizona.
  10. Ok, the reality is tha with a bunch of sweat equity the boat can probably get back to seriousness for 150 -- 250k -- putting in a carbon stick would be a bit more.Which does make it a relatively good deal for what can be a really good boat. And like any good boat owner -- you don't count the cost of your own labor if you want to keep your sanity. That said,
  11. I raced on that pos once in LIs. The primar broke before the start. Casting snapped and hit the drum ended up in the cockpi. Traveler kept jamming cause the bearings in the undersized bullets under the deck were powder. Boat had potential. Just had to replace the mast, the sails, and every moving part.
  12. question.....what is the official Florida position on these invasive species? Can you kill them on sight? Can you intentionally hunt them. Or will you get fined or have your weapon confiscated? I could see there being a huge business in putting together python hunts in the glades. Sort of like pheasant hunting in the dakotas. Hell, I'd fly down for a couple days just for the fun of it. all you need is your Ruger 22 or a fine handgun and it would be a blast. Guide throws em in the back of the boat and ships you your python steaks. And if they suck, he covers them in cajun seasoning and you have them "blackened" like you do with trash fish.
  13. Oh, I think Sol understands this just fine. But first, one has to first prove that mere gun ownership is so much more of a health risk than any other real or perceived cause of harm, that the doc is justified in asking it while failing to ask about other, more statistically probable causes of harm. Like swimming pools. If patients were being dismissed from medical practices because they owned swimming pools, or refused to discuss swimming pools, we might be hearing about that but we are not. I'd like to know why not. Oh, I know why! Because patients aren't being turned away on account of pool ownership. Doctors are, and should be, free to discuss health and lifestyle choices with their patients but when the politics create an atmosphere where patients are likely to lie to their care providers, the politics need to be removed from the table. For that to happen, patients' first amendment rights (to say "yes" without facing discriminatory practices) need to be upheld along with the physicians' right to ask a question they believe is relevant. Imagine if the homosexual person were discharged from a practice simply for admitting as much. As much as I'm against any sort of gag law, those within the medical practice who have a hard-on against guns brought this upon themselves. They have the absolute power to mind their own beeswax and make the problem go away. Many Dr's are "sensitive" to the guns issues because when they were getting their degrees, many of them got to see firearms in action in the emergency rooms. My Dr always asks me if I drink too much (say no, but yes), eat fatty foods (say no, but yes)...and wear my seatbelt (yes). If he asked about guns, its not like I'm under FUCKING OATH. And, if you have a fucking gun, put it in a goddamn safe like a responsible person.
  14. My Toyota says it was built in San Antonio...but I believe the document is forged. It has a Japanese Name and Japanese parts -- therefore it MUST have been born in Japan!
  15. Its A FUCKING COPY to begin with. You can't forge a COPY! Russia is waiting for your immigration request -- I suggest you go where you will be happier.
