      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. get over what, twat? did you say something about a big boy? you mean like you - a gutless faggot hiding behind his screen name? wha wha wha. still don't see you signed up for any of the events listed. i suspect i know why. you go mr phrf beater!!!
  2. how to ruin racing? funny you should ask start with a pinhead adolescent editor who is more interested in himself than promoting the sport, as opposed to someone who might champion the sport & provide constructive criticism (rants & raves are not considered constructive). if everything (race management/scoring/party.....) is not done the way then he believes (ie-"i am the best and should win every race, i am god's gift to sailboat racing"), then it is wrong, idiotic, amateurish. why dont you go ahead and become fleet captain & fix all that is wrong??????? will wait for a coherent response but doubt that one is forthcoming
  3. lol. then have someone else do it. you obviously missed the point of the op. and yes-have towed a boat across the country. from mich to wash state

  6. wait for it. where is the standard greeting? folks here on sa slacking off a bit
  7. If Ed don't like how the country voted he could always move to Mexico or Somalia with the rest of the illegals and terrorists. One can only hope!
  8. can anyone say craig??? It's surprising how much stuff shows up here AFTER showing up on that other site we are all forbidden to mention. Scooter is a hack & copy/paste artist at best. Amateur trying to front as a site for original content. Oh wait, I forgot-he is here to free us from all those sailing websites that provide nothing but recycled bs. Can anyone say Anarchy NOT!!!
  9. scooter-stick to something you know (which ain't politics or sailing)
  10. and when can we all hope that you move out? i am sure there is some third world country that would welcome you with open arms. i think n korea is open. at best-you are an ignorant fool
  11. and what do you do for a living? saving the planet somehow? i seriously doubt it. do you live on a farm, raise all your own food, make your own cloths, blah, blah, blah you probably sail on a boat make of either fiberglass or carbon fibre. hmmmm asshat, what do you think that does to the environment? if you have all the solutions, why don't you run for president? you are an idiot
  12. exactly-what is nuking in southern cali is just a moderate breeze in hawaii
  13. Hopefully the Ed will relocate to Canada (or anywhere else)
  14. Dead according to him as he was never allowed back . Who would want him there anyway?
  15. Boo fucking Hoo. What a piss poor clown!
