      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. Did you pull the trigger on a boat yet? Freshwater SR33 listed on YW looks tempting.
  2. http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1994/C%26C-YACHTS-SR-33-2792683/MI/United-States#.Vu_q6OIrJmM I know the guy, he's got a high asking price but actually will take a lot less! (Two boat owner) Just up the coast in Grand haven, MI. PM me for his phone # if your serious. SR stands for Serious Racing.
  3. Looks exactly like my SR33 for sale in the classifieds! Even has the same under deck spinnaker port just in front of the primaries.
  4. Done, Since he's use to sailing on top of the water, is he coming back around for Ice boating?
  5. Ticklish is in! Friday night in GH, slip 25. Looking forward to the delivery home! (Holland- Musk, SW15-20, hoping it holds!).
  6. Ticklish is in for the Musketucky Gov. Cup. (see above post for a very long description of the event) So far I have a driver, mainsheet guy & pitt guy committed. Looking for....Bowman, Mastman, runner girl, Naviguesser & Railmeat. PM if interested Must have strong liver.
  7. Hey, with any luck that new rudder may get you a 42 and you can race Tuesday nights! Is 42 the cutoff? I heard as high as 84 was being considered.
  8. Very cool picture, thanks for sharing. (and for not showing all the other boats in front of us!) Hell of a way to end the season, played keel watcher because I fractured six ribs windsurfing last week. Fun times!
  9. Feel free to share your Anchorage experience as well. At least you did'nt hit anybody. Party was fun, band put on a good show.
  10. Ticklish is in. Looking forward to playing on the outside!
  11. Ticklish is in. 7:11.33 is fricken early. 9AM skippers meeting in GH. We must average 7kts+ to get there on time, South 9kts perdicted.....gonna miss it! Return trip looks like two bags of ice needed.
  12. Jack lines will be used tomorrow. Not sure what I'm more excited for, the race or the return Sat. Perdicted NW 20-35, .75 has not ben out of the bag for awhile.
  13. Ummm.... NO! In fact, HELL NO! As much as I would love to see Chico in Port Washington it will have to wait until next year ( I wasn't planning on it anyway but this solidifies my decision!) For those that go.Good Luck and BE SAFE! It should be epic! Peerless should make it in about an hour and a half if BT can keep it upright! Chico is going to get some early afternoon lovin! I hope the waterspouts don't dilute my R&C.
  14. Ticklish is in. Glanced at weather forcast 15-25 North East backing during the day, yikes! Looking for crew, who wants a quick ride across the pond? Have you back for breakfast Sunday.
  15. Two options this week end, MYC Pursuit race Friday night or MBCC. Leaning toward Pursuit because of how much boat time will be required next week for Tripp & Queens.
