      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. If your view of IOR boats, designed to the rule or otherwise, is boring then you clearly never sailed them. And yes, compared to today's boats, slow, but in the same way as you could say 1975 cars are slow compared to today. And they most certainly were hard, hard to sail and hard on the human.........
  2. ........Ummmm, am I the only one here who thinks, "Botched Execution" - but he's dead, so in fact it was not botched ? Hat, coat, gone........back to GA
  3. I love all the conspiracy theories, however, one thing remains true, we have no plane, no wreckage, no bodies ? However, and not having read all the scuttlebutt above, try this for another theory (Conspiracy theory 7005) which has been aired, along the same lines - So in the middle of the Indian Ocean, well not quite the middle is a little known island called Diego Garcia (also known as Diego Fucking Garcia if I read the above correctly) - and it stands roughly in the assumed (cause we don't really know) flight path of MH370 if indeed it was flying off to the southern ocean. Now also assume as per the conspiracy theory number 7005 that said MH370 was flying at 25000 feet, and there was no communications etc etc. and as yet the alarm has not been raised about a missing plane. Now Conspiracy theory 7005 persists that said little island being a LARGE military base would have radar and has an approaching high speed large aircraft that persistently refuses to identify itself, does not change course, and is not a recognized commercial flight - the consequences don't bear thinking about..........That is the other DG theory. But there is still no wreckage ? The most interesting thing is that time will eventually reveal what happened, Aliens never abducted it so somewhere sometime, someone will find something, stumble on something , and then we'll all know for sure. Until then everyone is guessing.
  4. And there were 3 M&W 35's built in Durban , South Africa by Mosenthal's Marine (Cloud Nine, Red Amber and Soundwave)- a smaller version of Ginkgo, complete with Gorilla Pits, Bloopers, et al.
  5. Waiting for news on "the other" West Coast - positive thoughts streaming your way from all over the Globe Catherine, be strong !!
  6. Thoughts Prayers and best wishes with you MSG.
  7. Octo......mmmmm Salt and Pepper squid ? I don't think so
  8. Sometimes the funniest things are all true.... The following extracts come in response to an advert in a South African woman's magazine called Femina. All of the extracts are from people whose first (or even second) language is NOT English and who live a very rural existence. Back in 1985, SA Femina Magazine ran an advertisement for Nelex, a medicine for the treatment of a vaginal infection known as Vaginitis.The ad prompted hundreds of letters from sufferers countrywide, most of them from women who were clearly unsure as to what exactly was wrong with them. The letters were collected by the advertising agency that created the Femina ad who swear that every single one of them is genuine. 1. My interesting language is English, so you better send me an English copy of your vaginitis. Please send me the following symptoms: itching, discharge, unpleasant smell. 2. I am one of those with a virginal problem. I will be very grateful if my disease were acceptable. 3. Dear sirs, greetings as patient to you, but I have not got enough time to express my sickness over this paper. I want to come by myself to confess my sickness to you after I use this Nelex. The trouble is my vaginitis and that I'm so ugly. 4. How can I get vaginal infection? Most chemists cannot help. 5. Is vaginitis normal, or does it occur by mistakes like having sex? 6. My husband is not happy with the behavior of my vagina at bedtime. Please send me more information about these vaginal erections. 7. My symptoms are some of the ones you didn't mention, so please send me another medicine. 8. Every boyfriend left me and made another girl pregnant, so maybe you can help me. 9. With modern life of anonymous infection, I have found your vaginal infection very handy and unavoidable. I tried Dettol, Omo (washing powder) and also pure brandy. All in vain. 10. My problem is itching, burning pain after intercourse when the weather is cold or foggy. I am a young lady of 1963. Will you please send me more news about my virginia pains during intercourse, even when I'm not having intercourse at all. I use to have sex eight to ten times a day. Now I am very dry. I went to the hospital and they told me I have too much sex. Maybe I should move to Durban for the humidity. 11. I am a girl of 21 years of edge. Can you help me with virginial infractions. 12. Last night the virginial infections suddenly attacked me. What do you want me to do. 13. Please send me Nelex. I am so sick I will even pay for it. My virginia is wide open, but I only slept with my husband alone, but he says I am a bitch. 14. I slept with many men. Can you close my virginia for me. 15. I really want a baby, but I don't want to be pregnant. 16. The first time noticed vaginal infection was in your advert. 17. My vargin is beginning to irritate me. I scream at it sometimes but it doesn't help. Sometimes my anus produces an unpleasant smell. Please send my letter back so I can remember what I have written. Please advertise more so that I can remember that I have an infection. 18. I stopped to have sexual intercourse with my husband, but he hasn't stopped with me. My problem is I feel itching even when my husband romances me with his erection. I never told anyone about my symptoms, now I see them publicly advertised. 19. I am 42 years old, but the infections started when I was much older, and please reply as soon as it is convenient for me. 20. I have pain during sex, and also during intercourse. 21. My virgin is badly leaking. Does Nelex work like a cork? 22. When I was 13 I spray my vagina with Airoma room freshener, now I am 18 and I need your help. Please send any good and large information to suffering vagina. 23. According to symptoms advertised, I have discovered four of them in my promised one. She urges me so help me to help her. My new address (address supplied) but please send your reply to my old address, can I get vaginal infection without prescription. 24. Nelex the effective treatment, is it also effective in Zimbabwe. 25. My husband does not know where I live, so we never have sex. I have never had sex, but I have this virginity problem. The bath water must have infected me, although I swear nobody bathed after me in the same water. I have re-organised my virginia recently. 26. It is easy to know when I have vaginitis, but how do I know when I do not have vaginitis. 27. How are you at that side or Randburg? I hail to you with my wife's vaginal infection from Zimbabwe but I know that some people order the thing without knowing them of seeing in other words they order them for nothing without using them. 28. I am 20 years old and will be 21 sooner than expected. I cannot tell my mother about it: she has no vagina. 29. The last time I looked for my vaginitis, I could not find it anywhere.My vagina was discharged recently. 30. My vagina is deceased. 31. I am a doll of 19 and I want to introduce my itchy vagina to you. 32. I hope you are in a favourable condition for my vaginitis. 33. I have this virginity disease. I hope my letter arrives at tea time so you can study it better. I don't know if the smell really comes from my vagina. My nose cannot reach it properly. But I promise, my body also has some healthy parts. 34. How are you sir? I am very well, but I am also a very sick girl. Thank you for telling us how to avoid burning and itching virgins. I live very far away, and therefore wander if my letter will reach you. I am not an ignorant girl, but how can I be sure. 35. Please rescue my vaginal cavity from attack, sir, and send me this infection quickly. This Nelex it can help me. I will call my first son Nelex. Also my eyes and kids are very itchy. I better stop looking at them. 36. I air my vagina three times a day, much to my husband's regret. 37. At todays price of water, I'd rather use Nelex. 38. I have five of the four symptoms you mentioned. You will find the vaginal infections at the above address. 39. Please send me everything. The Nelex, the vaginal infections, the vaginitis, the reliable relief from symptoms.
