      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. So, it doesn't really have a damn thing to do with sailing, but it does promise to change your life if you buy it: "Suddenly respect is given (not earned), women want you and fish fear you! YOU are THE MAN!! That shit happens in real life, buy this speargun and you will see it first hand! Now you will be able to feed your friends and family fresh caught bullshark instead of bull!! THAT is something to be proud of!" I might buy the thing just so I can meet this chick! http://mobile.craigslist.org/spo/3997657610.html
  2. Ferro Cement sailboat...need I say more? Even if this boat had been kept up, I just don't find anything graceful about it. Especially that camper style coachroof.
  3. ^^^
  4. Okay, not a sailboat, but still pretty damn cool. Sorry for the cruddy pic, hard to take while you are driving down the highway. I loved how it looks like the amphibian sister of a 1950's Thunderbird. It even had fins.
  5. One word: Cameo!
  6. Why wait for the BBQ boat when you can have your own! http://m.hammacher.com/Product/Default.aspx?sku=11985 This is the boat with a built-in barbecue grill, umbrella, and trolling motor that provides waterborne cookouts for up to 10 adults. The boat's 24"-diam. steel charcoal grill is surrounded by an ABS table with 10 place settings that each have a recessed plate holder, three beverage holders, and silverware tray. Six compartments beneath the ABS seats store food and supplies for all-day cookouts. The 11'-diam. nylon umbrella can be retracted when using the grill. Its 30-watt electric trolling motor enables operators to maneuver up to 2 1/2 mph through calm water and alongside docks for loading/unloading. The motor's four rechargeable batteries provide up to eight hours of continuous use from a 10-hour charge. Polyethylene hull. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. Please call 1-800-227-3528 for details. 11' 9" Diam. x 9' 2" H. (1,102 lbs.) Price: $50,000
  7. Geez, you boys are making this WAY too difficult! A yacht in 3 easy steps:
  8. Electric wench = bionic woman??? No, just one who makes you shiver and sparks fly when she touches you. Sounds kinky..just don't get her wet...
  9. oh, like you've never flapped a leach before... flap flap flap flap flap flap flap flap....ahhhhh. "was it as good for you as it was for me, baby?" "no" *Facepalm*
  10. Electric wench = bionic woman???
  11. Speaking of big motor sailors... I do find parts of this boat attractive, and I totally give them a gold star for effort...well maintained, if not a little over the top. But the cabin looks to me like someone parked a Winnebago on top a noble yacht. But hell, it has a crows nest!
  12. I totally agree Crash, and said that I don't think the boat was ugly at all. It was more here because of this specific boats special extras...
  13. Crash, I think you win the prize! Cape Dory Typhoon it is. Down to the tiny round port lights.
  14. I've been walking pass this little guy for a about a month and have felt a tinge of guilt every time I thought of submitting it to this thread. The thing is, I don't find this boat ugly, just maybe a little absurd. This tiny little boat is more tricked out than many 40' boats I've seen. Double headsails, (roller furling of course), full keel, bowsprit, wind generator, and finally a mizzen mast! I do admire this boat and its owner, who clearly loves it, but WOW! Does anyone know what it is? I've tried the Googles with no luck.
  15. For some reason, when I look at this boat, all I can think of is this: (runs and hides)
