      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. Wow. +1 very very nice. I love full length mannlicher stocks.
  2. I grew up with rifle training when in cadets. Learned to take apart clean and reassemble my gun. It was good training and I had great respect for what a gun was for and I enjoyed the skill required on the range to place a shot. It is when the Soldiers of Fortune nutters poke their heads above the soil that pisses me off. I am not for banning guns . But I would say at least give our law enforcement people the equal footing they require to confront some of the weird shit out there. Funny how those who grew up shooting .22s for and hunted don't bother playing video games or paintball. The only time folks I grew up with were afraid of guns was when some idiot showed up from Pittsburgh and bought a gun, license and ammo on the first day of deer season.
  3. +1 Be careful who you callin' Blowhard! I resemble that remark.
  4. I'll see your BLOWHARD and raise you $0.50 on FOOL.
  5. Has the dry wall arrived yet?
  6. Another link to AIS data with a running commentary. Carnival should call the replacement vessel once it is built the " MV COSTA PLENTI " http://gcaptain.com/...ia-video/?37941
  7. The Captains night order book would be the first piece of the puzzle to see if he ordered the courses for the night passage. The second piece of the puzzle would be the vessels squat table for 15 knots. My estimate puts it at 2.5 metrer increase in draft at that speed. The minut he comes into 20 meter water the squat will increase. Should be interesting to find out if pilots were available but not taken for cost cutting reasons My $0.02
  8. What he might want to worry about is the survey for insurance . You know that pesky third person liability shit. So, does he get a home survey or does he get a marine survey. Dilemma !!! I don't think rigging stresses are the main structural issue he should be worrying about...
  9. Great revival thread for this house boat!!!!
  10. Do you think he some how got hold of the secret "Bolger Mega Roomaran drawings." The bow is just begging for two bulls eyes to be painted on them where the series of six foot waves will come a knocking for a visit. This just might be the real version of TORTURED plywood construction.Time for SA to pony up for a name for this craft and toss it his way for consideration. How about BIZZARRO
  11. The 65 x 32 boat might actually make it if this Japanese house makes it to the west coast in the near future. We need some one to rate these two puppies. RACE ON !!!
  12. Any idea what grade of shingles he will be using on the roof oh excuse me the cabin top? Let us know when the train leaves the station. That is one uTube vid I don't want to miss.
  13. ABSOLUTELY THE PUREST FORM OF ANARCHIST, He has offended the sensibilities of both camps. Monohull and multihull. Jeezuz he's gone as far as to offended home builders also. Love the train wreck theme and I hope to see him at least clear the pier. I believe it might be time to send him some life jackets. Dare he be called an "Anarchist"
  14. Some fun here. My watch says half past Vaka quarter to Wing sail and 3 elements. The calender now shows 1 year and change to AC Frisco and something tells me no one will be using anything but floats for the race. Gotta love the Dark Side and its followers.Keep your sticks up. . If that's bothersome, then here's a list that ought to really set you to spinning... ;-) http://en.wikipedia...._nautical_terms
  15. BINGO I'll second that!!
