      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.

    Proud Co-founder and Ring Leader of the White Trash Circus:
    Local 270 Western Kentucky Chapter
  1. Well played sir. Hmmm, White Trash Circus, related to Rico are you? If Rico's from Kentucky, we're probably related. Hell most of us are cousins.
  2. Call. I see your beaver and raise 4 muffs
  3. A blessing and a curse then, might as well enjoy it while it lasts. Sunday and Monday here were in the single digits, wind chill -10 and -20, and you woulda thought the damn sky was falling. Should be in the 40's this weekend and it'll feel like summer after this cold snap. So Rod's on the hard or what? Wasn't he trying to sell FH at one point? Dammit I miss sailing.
  4. What'd I miss? FH sink yet?
  5. ^^^That's what hooked me, HR. Honestly. Some dude and his son out in SoCal chasing the dream, going all-in building a giant cat from scratch. Hate to see you guys throw in the towel. What's up Dock Rat? He jump ship or what??? If you've decided to scrap the trip, it's time to liquidate inventory bro... sails, electronics, etc... Do you still have the bike? Where's FH'jr? Time to part with something. Take stock of where you are and what's available to you- very rarely are we left with absolutely no outs. Good Luck Rod.
  6. How 'bout Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn reuniting for a TV Miniseries? Betty White plays the elderly, quick-witted Mother. Jean Claude Van-Damme as The Viking, who runs a repo business/pawn shop/underground grow op on the side.
  7. The Rod is going to change his junk???Oh, great. Now the thread changes to transvestites and drag queens...argh. I thought that the Julie Newmar references were where it changed... How about Patrick Swayze to play the Rod? Well, Swayze is dead, and Rod will probably be dead soon after the boat slips beneath the Gate. Wait.... Swayze's dead?
  8. Ever'body's wrong, and I'm amazed no one's pointed it out yet. As Rod stated, the FH has "ruTTers", not "ruDDers". All previous "rudder" posts are irrelevant. Back to proposed sail plan.
  9. I'm getting the impression our buddy, FB - Doug, would argue with a post.
  10. FUCK YEAH!!!!!! GO THE ROD!!!
  11. Mr. Kang, you are correct. Rod laid the hulls up at his place and trucked 'em over to LL.
  12. Second that: "So, I declare and state that HR'FH is indeed Hot Rod of the Flyin Hawaiin!" I've been texting back and forth with him for the last week or so using the 530# referenced here and the other articles he's shared his number. SO, if it's not Rod's # then: 1.) Someone faked the number in the Lat38 article 2.) Someone faked the number in the Marin Co. News article 3.) It's someone else on board FH. 4.) The punctuation/spelling/rapid posting pace are EXACTLY THE SAME!!! R'FH= James "Hot Rod" Lane... GO THE ROD!!! -JDub
  13. Second that. I'm pulling for the Rod and hope he proves us all wrong (and that no one gets hurt in the process). So don't be a dick, dick(s). -JDub
