      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. gratzi! beer me!
  2. Hey totally off topic question but you guys will know...who, in Chicago, re-upholsters seat cusions (sunbrella) ?
  3. Hey, B-n-G...you're me !!!!
  4. Not having cancer myself but having 3 very close friends lose their battle with this horrible diesese, your comment about Lance really stuck a nerve. How can you say Lance is a "pussy"? He has done more for cancer awareness and helping survivers than you have. Just cause he got off lightly? (brain, lung, testicle) You really think you suffered more than him and all the other people affected by this horrible descese, that it gives you the right to call him a "Pussy"? All my friends suffered, and you just can't measure who suffered more. But not one of them ever made a comment that they had it as bad as the other patients and friends they made. Get off your self-pity wagon! Is he a pussy? no. Is he a moron, absolutely...!!!!! uhmmm, geee, my nut is the size of a grapefruit....ehhh, it's probably nothing. dumbass.
  5. I got diagnosed with Testicular in the spring of '02. Got it cut off later that week (quickest 5 pounds I ever lost ), got off with radiation only, no spreading...pretty much as easy as it could get.... Interrupted the radiation to Sail a Long distance race, which we won. At the time it seemd like a good idea, and I really needed to get out and do something.....
  6. Duuude! Well said! a little wordy for me, but excellent point and sentiment!
  7. considering that last week we had two threads running where people simply id'ed their boats and cars, what's the real problem with this? s. Well, just because everybody else is doing it......blah blah blah... AND...doing it in a thread where it's supposed to be done is one thing...bringing it up out of the blue is another... and I don't know that he did that, either, but if theres a point to it (i.e. what hitch should I buy for a '98 Ferarri, to tow my T-10) it's ok....if not.....kinda toolish....
  8. ***3. He panders the beliefs of liberals while waiving his “rich guy in cool car” flag in their faces not realizing that anybody but an addle headed 15 year old hippy chick with a trust fund can see through his façade of mismatched ideals and lifestyle. Ah no again I'm socially liberal and fiscally conservative. I haven't mentioned what kind of car I drive in over a year. It's not particularly cool plenty of sorority chicks at SMU drive the same car - I bought below my means. Lot's of other people talk about what kind of car they drive some more expensive than mine - where's your outrage??*** OK, I was out of town and am just now catching up... BG- This reply is terrible...you should edit it; specifically these sentences. You're throwing gas on the fire, man... 1) I haven't mentioned what kind of car I drive in over a year. 2) It's not particularly cool plenty of sorority chicks at SMU drive the same car 3) I bought below my means. 4) Lot's of other people talk about what kind of car they drive some more expensive than mine
  9. speaking of her, what ever happened to that psycho?
  10. this is almost as much fun as the porn war.!
  11. Jacques Chirac, The French Prime Minister, was sitting in his office wondering what kind of mischief he could perpetrate against the United States when his telephone rang. "Hallo, Mr. Chirac!", a heavily accented voice said. "This is Paddy down at the Harp Pub in County Sligo, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!" "Well, Paddy," Chirac replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?" "Right now," said Paddy, after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, me cousin Sean, me next door neighbor Seamus, and the entire dart team from the pub. That makes eight!" Chirac paused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have one hundred thousand men in my army waiting to move on my command." "Begorra!" said Paddy. "I'll have to ring you back!" Sure enough, the next day, Paddy called again. "Mr. Chirac, the war is still on. We have managed to get us some infantry equipment!" "And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Chirac asked. "Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor." Chirac sighed, amused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 6,000 tanks and 5,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I've increased my army to one hundred fifty thousand since we last spoke." "Saints preserve us!" said Paddy. "I'll have to get back to you." Sure enough, Paddy rang again the next day. "Mr. Chirac, the war is still on!" We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We've modified Jackie McLaughlin's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boys from the Shamrock Pub have joined us as well!" Chirac was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100 bombers and 200 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to two hundred thousand!" "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!", said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back." Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. "Top o' the mornin', Mr. Chirac! I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war." "I'm sorry to hear that," said Chirac. "Why the sudden change of heart?" "Well," said Paddy, "we've all had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and decided there's just no fookin' way we can feed two hundred thousand prisoners.
  12. this thread really needs more pictures, dammit!
  13. One day Mom was cleaning Junior's room and in the closet she found a bondage S&M magazine. This was highly upsetting for her. She hid the magazine until his Father got home and showed it to him. He looked at it and handed it back to her with out a word. So she asked him, "What should we do about this?" Dad looked at her and said, "Well I don't think you should spank him."
