      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

So what will george come back as?

 

 

unlike you and the rest of the people on this site hiding behind pseudonyms, everyone here knows who i am. i may be an asshole for speaking the truth. but guess what? i dare the rest of you to grow real balls and use your real names. that is why the Mark Brigade Sock Puppets hates my guts. because they know i speak the truth about them and have the balls to do so.

 

 

as for the culling of sock puppets. that is totally up to the admin of SA. i however, would like to thank SA for allowing them to post. the world now knows the ugly truth. i would also like to thank the Mark Brigade Sock Puppets for exposing their ugly truth and showing us just how stupid they really are.

 

 

now i would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!

 

Wasn't mad talking about a different George? Hot tempered mullet endowed Michiganer sort?

 

If you could grow hair on your head, you fucking loser, you'd welcome a mullet.

 

LMAO at you!

 

 

 

 

Update - I got 15 untraceable tickets in my possession for the show.

 

Merry Christmas, BJ*

So, the rationale is

* idiot sockpuppets get culled - great, like it

 

OK, now what. How about the non-sockpuppet idiots? I hope obvious cull candidates sockpuppet or not get some consideration. I suppose Doug Lord is a good example.

Are you some kind of fucking Nazi?

i don't disagree with any of that. i don't even disagree that some people had (have) to go. what bothers me is the calls for anybody that anybody has a little issue with. but when people antagonise the jerks and feed the trolls they really have no one to blame but themselves. it also bothers me that they expect admin to clean up the mess they created.

 

With all due respect, that works for the (relatively) harmless trolls and sock puppets, there are a bunch I have on ignore. The several year running shit fights are also easy to ignore, if annoying having to deal with. But there are a handful of posters that crossed any and every line a long time ago, and continue to do so on a regular basis. It is not a matter of antagonizing them or starting anything. When people are solely interested in ugly personal attacks and revealing details of people's personal lives that they have some how uncovered (which is highly disturbing in itself), ignoring them is like putting out a forest fire with a turkey baster.

 

Per the earlier post, I haven't talked to Shife in a bit, but the last time I did he had no interest in coming back here.

so, again, George is gone?

 

To date Scot has preferred we not comment directly on the ban status of specific accounts and individuals. But I can say I've not seen his latest sock puppet since a little after midnight yesterday.

 

There are a few individuals with "Ban on Sight" orders out on them, so let me know if when he manifests again.

 

The biggest challenge with sock puppet control is identifying them - just because someone acts like a jerk doesn't mean it's the SAME jerk as another user, even if their issues seem similar. Before I ban a suspected sock puppet I generally need to check the account out if the IP's/E-Mails don't give it away immediately, which usually means giving the poster enough rope to identify himself before hitting the flick button.

 

Identifying someone just from a couple of posts isn't always easy, but once someone like GP gets himself worked up he always slips.

Sweet! I don't like the idea of banning just because someone disagrees or you don't like what they say. At least gaytor brings some some slight entertainment value to this forum. But there are a select few like gee pee that should be kicked on sight. So great job if you're doing that.

Bull Gator has added nothing of value to this forum for several years. At best, his posts are innocuous bs, and all to often he posts pure crap that results in counter posts that drag the discourse in this place down into the gutter. And he does it deliberately. He is a net drag on this place, and one of the reasons that make it easy to choose to avoid the forum all together. The moderators would be doing themselves a favor by culling him.

 

In general, I think the appropriate use of moderating powers is a good thing. There has been more than one occasion where I have asked myself if posting here was worth my time, and if I knew that some one was working to help keep the dog poo off the side walk, I would be more likely to come

Ive been following the wb forum for over 10 years - In that time the moderators have become less and less tolerant of darn near everything and anything out of the mundane. They seem to take kindly to tattletales and thin skins who like to mash on the report post button. I have seen it progressively become less interesting and more a place for us against them politicos to hang out and spout their crap and try to score "points " against one another. Now the bilge ( sort of like general anarchy here) consists almost exclusively of the same dozen or so people, day after day saying the same thing over and over and over. I have no proof, but generally get the feeling that the number of users over there has dropped drastically in the last few years.

In essence, this place is the poo on the sidewalk. Most just poke at it with sticks, others pick it up and throw it.

At least we'll die doing something we love.

Maybe we could cull the sleepers that only post 5 times a year as well.

 

oh thats not right. I dont visit here that often, and I'd hate to think I'd lose my login for not being a pest. I hate the way everything on the internet expires.

Geeze. I realize this might be a novel concept I quench my thirst for sailing and racing by - hold on to your hat - by going sailing and racing.

 

I come to SA for entertainment. And now you go a kill the only good thing you got going!

 

Its not like this is great source for well informed views or news. I mean, come on, have you looked at the front page?

 

Leave the sock puppets alone. They are the only thing that makes this place interesting.

 

Have mercy this holiday season! :-)

 

No one knows for sure who all the suck puppets are, and how many sock puppets post here; the number could very well be in the thousands.

 

Since it is impossible to identify them, what's the point in even attempting to ban them ?

I have not seen anything from BG for days now, despite some interesting news in the College Football thread, that surely would have drawn a response from him. I'm thinking he got the flick. He was trying really hard to be more obnoxious than usual of late. But in his defense, lets say you get busted and some cocksucker put your mugshot on the forums...wouldn't you have a propensity for general assholishness, certainly to the prick that posted your pic?

If he limited his asholishness to that particular party, I would agree. But the Odor of his asshole spreads far and wide. So much so that i confess to the unworthy emotion of satisfaction when he got busted for DUI.

 

Hopefully he did get flicked.

I would have to ask when, in your opinion, is it appropriate to reveal details of an individuals personal life?

 

There is no question that the private lives of our politicians and government officials are subjected to a high level of scrutiny, such scrutiny can and very often does lead to vilification by the media.

 

Should the same hold true for other officials? Even those who have taken on a voluntary basis, organisational and or leadership roles in our community?

 

How much are we entitled to know?

If anyone really deserves to be flicked forever, wouldn't it be someone who violated SA Forum security by hacking into other members' accounts?

 

Apparently the hacker is still posting here.

 

Now there is an example of objectivity from the powers that be; NOT.

Is it just a sign that all forums have a rise & decline? Political correctness & public perceptions can goad some & inhibit others. I'm a lurker but may still be on someones ignore list. . Forum bitchiness ts going to deter some of the gentler souls. Defending your position can be tiresome. What a balance for the mods to maintain.

Sorry but I am trying to turn the other cheek here. Jb you are a self confessed racist and I can't condone that, so I choose to ignore you. In response, you act like a spoilt little child trying to pick a fight with every post I make. Honestly I don't care and don't read them. I only know you called my wife a bitch because Lonelyboy quoted you in his response. That was a low blow, but as I have said you are a waste of space and I honestly wasn't that surprised.

 

Bob I would happily man up and would love the opportunity to go toe to toe with you. That said, I really I can do without the aggression in my life. I get onto SA for fun not you have a constant bitch session with someone. So if you don't mind I will continue to ignore you.

We decided to have a quiet one this year, going to be our last one alone. It's been awesome. Just chilling around the house,playing tunes and mucked about with my new marine aqaurium. Cooked a great baked dinner together, even had some of that soy based turkey shite.

 

Today was much the same, just what we needed. Pity about the cricket.

So deadom were you ignoring me when you posted this or just being aggressive,...

 

Pull ya head in Bob. We all know you don't like blacks, and yeah seppos are hard work, but I think you will find that the whole Oprah thing will indeed boost Australian tourism. And let's face it with the Aussie and US dollars at parity we need all the assistance we can get to maintain and hopefully improve tourism earnings.

 

The show itself will be shown around the world, so 3 million dollars is pretty cheap.

 

Don't like Oprah? Do what I do and change the channel........

I would have to ask when, in your opinion, is it appropriate to reveal details of an individuals personal life?

 

There is no question that the private lives of our politicians and government officials are subjected to a high level of scrutiny, such scrutiny can and very often does lead to vilification by the media.

 

Should the same hold true for other officials? Even those who have taken on a voluntary basis, organisational and or leadership roles in our community?

 

How much are we entitled to know?

 

 

 

On an Internet forum, never. If someone chooses to disclose those details themselves, that is their decision.

i don't disagree with any of that. i don't even disagree that some people had (have) to go. what bothers me is the calls for anybody that anybody has a little issue with. but when people antagonise the jerks and feed the trolls they really have no one to blame but themselves. it also bothers me that they expect admin to clean up the mess they created.

 

With all due respect, that works for the (relatively) harmless trolls and sock puppets, there are a bunch I have on ignore. The several year running shit fights are also easy to ignore, if annoying having to deal with. But there are a handful of posters that crossed any and every line a long time ago, and continue to do so on a regular basis. It is not a matter of antagonizing them or starting anything.

May I then ask what is personal information?

 

For example, is information gathered from public records considered to be personal information?

 

In our society there exists the common presumption that people act honestly, in good faith and with due care. The presumption has been extended beyond government personnel to include other individuals or groups such as hospital authorities and employees, school teachers and schools and corporate boards of directors.

 

This presumption is equally applied in the context of our race and regatta officials. Consistent with this, when it is stated that an oath or affirmation has been administered by competent authority, it is presumed that the oath was indeed administered, absent evidence to the contrary.

 

If evidence emerges to contradict a persons stated circumstances, is revealing such information in an internet forum, considered an invasion of that person's privacy?

Why doesn't someone start a thread titled "Tebow caught fucking mail escort over christmas by his wife". That should draw him out if he's lurking around here.

 

grow up, ffs....you guys pissed and moan and whined like a bunch of kindergarteners and now the guy is gone and you still want to "draw him out". some of you have been pushing his buttons, antagonising and instigating this for years (at least as many years as i have been reading this forum) and then whining because he retaliated. just stfu already.

 

Seems we got some Onion Skins around here.

I saw you deleted your posts on the Neptune thread, any reason for that? Seems it was only repeating what a bunch of us already know.

 

For me, Jerry Rollin's an asshole and deserves whatever he gets, but hey, that's just me hiding behind a sockpuppet.

nope never warp - just plop on the stove and cook on top of it - we don't recommend very high heat - but anything up to medium high is fine

Seems there's some pretty thin skinned people on SA, happy to hand it out but start whining when they get even a little bit of it back.

 

The way I see it, anyone who doesn't post under their own, or a recognisable name, is a Sock Puppet.

 

Are we looking at a whole new SA in 2011?

 

Unlikely.

Is there a topic under discussion here?

 

It would appear that people simply join this thread to contribute irrelevant rambling.

it is his boat name...anyone can find out who he is with 5 minutes of research.

 

i have to say though, that i disagree. a screen name is not the same as a sockpuppet. multiple i.d.s on the same forum site are sockpuppets, imo.

Oddly enough Elle, I wouldn't have even thought of doing that, researching somebody's screen name. I suppose some people do.

 

It really doesn't matter that much to me to be bothered with that sort of stuff.

well...i also don't see you calling anyone out for using a screen name which isn't either your first or last name either.

 

you know i don't give a fuck about what name someone uses.

Easy Elle, just saying. I know you don't care about names.

 

Just creepy that people do that shit, it's been done to me and it's pretty perverse IMO

take it easy, i'm not riled up about anything grumpy.

cavalier has mentioned in open forum who he is...

look i know it is creepy when someone who we won't mention digs through the internet to get info on you...but that is not what i am talking about here. some people do not hide their identity. regardless....i stand by my opinion that a screen name (that is not your real name or boat name or something that can be used to discern your irl identity) is not the same as a sock.
