      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.

Day 2 - Can We Get Some Bikini Weather Please

63 posts in this topic

I like the forecast today! Looking out my window right now, about 200 feet from the harbor's edge, I can see the very tops of the live oaks rustling just a bit. That means 3-5 knots, and it's from the N right now. Lots of sun and zero clouds, translation of which is: Seabreeze by noon alters gradiant for 10-15 of NE going E. That's pretty much money in the bank here, our sea breeze kicks ass. SSTemps are around 65-67 and bikini temps are MUCH hotter, meaning that the breeze is naturally drawn to our college girls.

 

Justin.TV stats came back, over 3500 people tuned in yesterday at some point, with a surprising number watching the racing on their iPhones, iPads, or other mobile devices. Who knew? Very cool anyway, and today we have a secret special guest that can help with not only the racing, but local history and cool stuff about the harbor, town, and the Tall Ship. And tomorrow we'll have another guest commentator; this one a round-the-world winning solo racer. This just keeps getting better!

 

Thanks again for checking us out, and a huge thanks to Harken and Layline for underwriting the bulk of this coverage. Please check out both their sites, and take the time to sign up for Harken's Facebook pageto show support for the great things they do for sailing.

 

Also please show support for Ocean Sailing Academy, Latis Yachting Solutions, and the US Melges 24 Class's "Road To Corpus" campaign, who also make our coverage possible. These are all valued sponsors and important contributors to a sport that we love, and a new way to present it to y'all. We also thank Layline for giving out a nice Henry Lloyd "BREEZE" vest and Atmosphere wicking shirt to two lucky winners yesterday, and we have more great prizes to dole out to intrepid viewers today, so be sure to watch OTWA from Day 2 of Charleston Race Week!

 

And here's the first HD Highlight Reel from our younguns at Starboard Tack Productions. Pretty good shit, and you can watch it in HD if ya like.

Good Morning! This morning we just tried to go out to the offshore race course, but 4-5 ft swells do not mix well with a bunch of electronics! We will definitely be getting out there tomorrow, though, for you offshore followers. Heading in to cover the inshore courses today.

BTW-For what its worth, I thought that some of the early efforts at OTW were pretty sophomoric, but what I've seen this time tells me that you've really learned how to do it. Can't be easy and you all have my respect for what you've been able to accomplish.

 

Now if you could only get the Chameleons to sail faster.....

Great job guys, good to see our past Commodore on 'Firewater' having a good time with a couple of mentions in the coverage.

 

IF one were to drive-up for tomorrow and the all-nighter to follow, would there be room on the boat Clean?

I am dropping these at the bottom of all of the links cause I am too tired to see if Anybody put this out so I have no idea if anybody knew they had offshore coverage available all week. I never saw any link on the CRW front page and there are so many links on the yachtscoring page, I don't know if anyone really listened...or cared.
