      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.

Tigers 1 & 2 in WIRW 2011

6 posts in this topic

Another WIRW in the books and thanks to all the boats in P1 for a great week of level racing. Things were extremely close this year, you could never relax or you'd be passed quickly. Great time on and off the water and I hope we see the Tigers back in numbers next year!

Anything to report about the boats, conditions, tactical excellence, windshifts, pure "boats" speed from Bob the maestro etc?

R,

We saw everything from 4-22 knts of breeze in flat water conditions. Penn Cove offers "staduim racing" with lots of current and wind shifts while we sailed against one other Tiger, 2 Farr 30's, 1 Hendo and a J 90. All boats seem to have similar speed with the Tigers but we had a little more point in 8-10. It was very educational sailing downhill with the Farrs as they just poled back and pointed at the mark when ever the breeze was up. Made us very attentive to our angles and boat speed. Tuesday was the big breeze day and my main trimmer work his ass off up hill. We managed to hold our own with the others even though it's not our ideal conditions.

I was watching. Thanks you guys. But I always thought you could do it. I trust the boat.

 

Kind of sorry I wasn't there for any of the toga type parties but I'm not at my best in a toga.

I'd have to drink a lot.

 

I think I actually could do that. It may not be pretty.

 

Thanks for making the boat go.

It was a great week- some very well sailed boats- Kirks was best. When we made mistakes we paid instantly.

 

We played with our rig tensions more than usual- and really enjoyed feeling the boat respond accordingly. Tues as the wind was blowing dogs off chains we were going upwind w/ great speed and point- unfortunately my 4 year old jib halyard snapped at the sheave on the tail end of our first beat. Thinking about replacing the single sheave with a double and going up a size. No, the jib was not oem.

 

I think people could tell we were having a blast in our boats- hope more Togers join us next time.

 

Mark
