      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.

I have a long term plan of sailing my tiger at both. I just need work to pick up and the family to give me the time away. I spoke to Harry AUS 46 and he is keen but a big ask from WA.

Would love to bring Balmain Tiger up one year to play with you. We have done it in a Blazer 23 and Spider 22 and had a ball, Tiger would be well suited, Tav and his crew had a great time in 2010, will not happen this year due to travel , next year we plan to bring a Sydney 39 up , hope I get a gig, so 2013 at earliest. Very difficult to justify the cost of the road trip from Sydney when we can race with half a dozen Tigers in Sydney most weekends.

We would really love to have you guys come South to sail One Design amongst a Tiger fleet in Widward Lewards. How about first weekend in March in Sydney 2012. Strobe, why not join us , make it a date.

just as a bit of info for those considering these events it this year there are 3 possibly 4 mumm 30's going to be at airly and the melgeas 32 are doing a one design thing at hammo. For next year there is a lot of interest from the qld mumm 30 fleet (up to 7-8 boats) to do a seiries that will include one of these regattas but which one has not been finalised yet

For all those thinking Airlie or Hammo this year don't forget Magnetic Island Race Week a couple of weeks later, a bit further north, nice and laid back, perfect way to round off the comp year.

There should be 2 Soto 30's at Airlie and Hammo.

 

Interesting to see how they go against the FT’s and Farr 30's.

there isn't even a 30s division this year

 

bit of a shame (FU actually) but not surprising after the internet debacle after last years inaugural event ... by non-entrants in the division,

 

maybe these spectators should save their Qld welcomes for the nsw RL team, not their competitors down south who fork out and done so much to establish interstate 30s racing

 

 

and to think that southerners might hitch up and outlay to go to MIRW ! dreaming.

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

where are these Sotos? they are not racing down here ?

dats what I said !

 

in no small part due to -what i said above

 

now compare that to the other entries, 13 already in one class,that has to be a record at this early stage of the game, might be a bumper year for SBs ?

 

one way to get around the local hostility would be to get 6 FTs and go OD, this would negate the seemingly inevitable local vs. visitor S30 bullshit

Not sure if you are refering to handicaps but Super 30 is on AMS which is a measurement system so there can be no local bias (perceived or fact). It would be great to see a FT fleet at Airlie.

Lot of shit flying last year Chippie. Totally unjustified and unproven but probably enough to keep several southern boats away, and particularly from MIRW..
