      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 haven't been around for about a year and a half (she said she was 18; she looked a little older than that). I missed the resolution regarding the Fat-ass from East coast who was suing our esteemed hosts here at Sailing Anarchy. How that all end up? Did we win?

I found it in post 812 of the blood boiling thread. Really not that hard. Ex-SA'er posted it on the same page that an SA-insider vented about SA. Go figure.

Ahh i thought it was uncalled for and red flagged myself. Something to do about underage

drinking in YC bars. Jeopardizing liquor licenses, etc. I was just wondering if your kids are in to that.

 

I guess ************ must have won we would have heard otherwise.

Ya. My kids are hitt'n the sauce pretty hard these days. The 6 y.o. especially. We don't let them at their grandmas club though. That would be stupid, and they never have the kind she likes anyway. Only at AYC, LYC and IHYC (when they give away beer).

Hey... If the beers free, do they need a license?

I noticed Clean seems to working a bit harder. Is that to pay the settlement?

According to the court docket, the SLAPP motion was set to be heard on July 15th and there was a tentative ruling filed July 14th. However, a "party's" motion to continue the SLAPP hearing was granted and the new motion hearing date is Sept. 9th. There is a three page document filed by the court regarding the 'minutes' of the July 15th hearing but I did not feel compelled to pay the $7.50 fee to view the document online.

 

A trial date has also been set for February 17, 2012.

 

Someone more knowledgable could spill the beans on what is happening.

It's a problem with posting from my phone that I have yet to figure out. For now you will just have to settle for being 3 or 4 times more entertained/enlightened/impressed when you read the things I say 3-4 times... And who said anything about underaged drinking?

On July 15 Judge Haas ruled that plaintiff shows a probability of sucess demonstrating that the "grifter" terminology is not protected activity. Motion to strike is denied.

And that "grfter" means swindler as ************' Wickipedia-quoting linguist stated, and not "circus sidedshow vendor" as SA defined the term.

That defendents have not shown that being CEO of ************ makes him a general purpose public figure, so ************ need not demonstrate malice.

But also that if DM is determined a public figure, that malice was demonstrated in both depositions since defendents did not believe their own grifter comment

To think that all might have changed with one letter "r".

 

Had the magic word been " gifter " . . . . . whole new ball game. The word would be true too.

Do you mean to say 'also'. As in: 'it is true that DM is a grifter AND ALSO a gifter'? In this case, I'd watch out. I think he'll be sueing you next.

I have no idea what the potential outcomes could be. Far too early, and far too many variables we know nothing about.

 

I just know this ruling means that this probably won't end well. It obviously never was as cut-and-dried as some tried to make it.

If DM wins, I'm sure he will want SA handed over to him so he can sell it to the highest bidder. And there will be bidders.

 

 

BUT, How about if DM wins and he hands SA over to me B) I've never written anything on the home page disparaging anyone. :D

???? I don't follow, how can people expressing an interest in the outcome of a matter, affect the outcome of that matter?

 

Because SA is a community not a website, even if DM Is successful, all taht is likely to happen is that SA either continues on under new management or rises again in a different form.

Because SA is a community not a website, even if DM Is successful, all taht is likely to happen is that SA either continues on under new management or rises again in a different form.

 

How 'bout all the trashing of DM that occurred on SA? Think that mattered?

Worst case is DM wins, SA files bankrupcy, shuts down this particular site, but continues under a new name/company set up, and DM goes after Clean, Scooter or both personally for damages in which case they both do whatever they need to to protect their own asses/assets.

 

 

If DM wins, I'm sure he will want SA handed over to him so he can sell it to the highest bidder. And there will be bidders.

 

 

BUT, How about if DM wins and he hands SA over to me B) I've never written anything on the home page disparaging anyone. :D

 

I could live with that. :blink:

 

I don't know how you can be "sure."

 

 

I'm just guessing. If he wins he will want to make sure Scot does not have the mega phone that is SA anymore (just a guess).

 

DM, would only keep up the suit if his chances were good and if they are good he will set his sights on muzzling Scot.

 

The site has had offers only to be rebuffed by the owner much to the chagrin of those who have spent the last 10 years building the site and hoping for a payoff. DM will want to get a bit of a payoff for the suit..........................But in the end.......once again..............only the lawyers will benefit.

 

Just saying........................

Hold on SE. I don't think so. Nope.

 

Look. I ain't no Harvard trained legal mind, sure, but gents, at this point jurisprudence becomes grotesque.

See, there's a difference between what Scot & Clean said and did, and our discussing the repercssions and Mr. Myers reaction.

Why any impetus to crowd free speech--OURS, not just bad boy Scot's?

Do Rag, you have a good point about trashing Dan on the forums, but there's a difference between the present discussion and excoriating or cursing ***********.

All this train of thought will lead to whispering in yacht club hallways. That went out with Joe Stalin, remember?

You can badmouth King George or Obama on Main Steeet anywhere in the U.S.A.

 

So here's where I fault Mr. ************, who similarly intimiated/attempted to silence un-named John Does.

Trying to prevent discussion? Bogus in all 50 states.

 

"Hush hush" is more insidious than using the "white collar criminal" vocabulary (privately) and the "grifter" word on an offbeat sailor website IMO.

And I feel like saying it here, now.

The laugher is that he's workin' it to get Scot to pay the legal bills, but he's definitely not a grifter.

As a matter of fact, no, the complaint is about what SA and Scott said about DM, not what anyone else says, unless they are joined as a defendant. But that is beside the point that I made, which is that following the proceedings in itself can do no harm.

 

I have absolutely no interest in the trash talk on this topic, or any interest in either side, just interested in how things are developing.

And this all started in Key West (years ago); when Mr. Clean got in front of Numbers with the OTW boat, got flipped off by Big Dan, and then posted the photo with a rant commentary.

The trial date has been set so you cannot amend the complaint to bring in additional people - unless the trial date is vacated. It is not like you can bring in additional people the day before trial.

Nope and nope.

 

The trashing would polarize DM (or anyone for that matter) and cause him to dig in and offer no quarter. Surely you can understand that.

 

Next, if proof of malice/intent was required, then a pervasive program, possibly encouraged by the defendents, either directly or indirectly, would surely be an issue.

 

And finally, to add the John Does and push the trial date back is of no consequence whatsoever. Let's think a bit about how the case would look if SA were singled out and others who essentially made the same statements were ignored. It seems to me that it would be mandatory for DM to add to J Does to maintain his position and credibility.

 

Your turn......

Why would it need to be in the same trial? Its not as if all the kiddies making it with the potty mouths were party to the original alleged offence... Couldn't the infantility in a discussion topic after the suit was brought be considered as a separate issue?

Any way you slice it, it's going to be very interesting to watch as it all plays out.

Boy have you got that wrong. It was Aussie diggers that first stopped the Japanase advance in the Owen Stanley ranges of New Guinea. Google it.

 

Then they had to go and bail out some yanks who thought they knew jungle fighting - and got lost. It's history, maybe kept a little quiet over there but that's how it happened.

And thereafter the Diggers were largely kept off the front line to save US morale... (not that I'm complaining: I got to meet my grandfather). But we would have been stuffed without US industrial output. Yamamoto was exactly right about that...

My Dad was there in New Guinea in the US Army Air Corps. He came home a walking skeleton with malaria. I'm not sure he'd be very happy to hear you down playing his role in the effort. I do know that after we moved back to Australia he loved it there because people treated him like a hero. He was "the Yank" and he liked it and he never had anything but respect for the Australian forces. I have an old folder full of his photos from the war. Not very pretty stuff.

All due credit & respect to anyone who served there. We can have no idea what it was like. I am certainly not downplaying your fathers role. But the facts are there. Aussies turned back the Japs when they were almost at Port Moresby - not Amreicans. And a US attempt to cross the Owen Stanleys by another route did fail. That might have been the first experience of jungle fighting the yanks had. Aussies apparently led them out. US & Aussie troops were both in action on the north coast of Papua later in the war.

 

EDIT None of this has anything remotely connected to this thread - except for DoRag injecting his crap.

Johnny...ya might want to check the dates of Milne Bay....the 39th was falling back along the track despite being reinforced by the 14th when another bunch of diggers and seppos routed some of the best troops the japs had. That is what is regarded as the first time the Japs were defeated. Yep the US Army 125th?? i think....got lost trying to outflank....but they found them again a month later. They also had to be replaced by diggers at Buna/Gona when they wouldn't advance.

 

Kokoda Track went on for quite a while after Milne Bay and at the same time the marines were going into Guadalcanal which meant a different focus for the Japanese.

 

We could not have done it alone Johnny but we probably could have done without Dugout Doug who like Doey was a REMF

I know damn well Oz could not have done it alone. But I was not going to conceed Dorags rubish might be right

Then there is this....

 

 

The British Field Marshal Sir William Slim—who had no part in the battle—said:

 

"Australian troops had, at Milne Bay in New Guinea, inflicted on the Japanese their first undoubted defeat on land. If the Australians, in conditions very like ours, had done it, so could we. Some of us may forget that of all the Allies it was the Australian soldiers who first broke the spell of the invincibility of the Japanese Army; those of us who were in Burma have cause to remember."[2]

 

and that at about the same time they started pushing the Japs back over the Kokoda trail.

Some 66 years later and there's still a need to refer to the people of Japan as Japs? Really?

 

I have a lot of friends of Japanese heritage and after asking many of them, it has become more than clear that they view the term as derogatory. I'm sure that we'd all agree that the use of the term, Nigger, is not one that conveys respect to people who are black-skinned. If we recognize that it's unnecessary to engage in conversation in which we choose words that deliberately create pain, just how far has modern civilization actually progressed?

Johnny...ya might want to check the dates of Milne Bay....the 39th was falling back along the track despite being reinforced by the 14th when another bunch of diggers and seppos routed some of the best troops the japs had. That is what is regarded as the first time the Japs were defeated. Yep the US Army 125th?? i think....got lost trying to outflank....but they found them again a month later. They also had to be replaced by diggers at Buna/Gona when they wouldn't advance.

 

Kokoda Track went on for quite a while after Milne Bay and at the same time the marines were going into Guadalcanal which meant a different focus for the Japanese.

 

We could not have done it alone Johnny but we probably could have done without Dugout Doug who like Doey was a REMF

 

Bugout Doug.

Ladies and gentlemen. Good afternoon and welcome to the Australian War Memorial. My name is Peter Londey and I am a historian in the Memorial's Military History Section. This presentation is one of a series of short "Roll of Honour" talks which the Memorial has planned for this year to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the events of 1942. Today's talk deals with a battle which, though small, marked a turning point in the war in the Pacific: the Battle of Milne Bay, in late August and early September 1942. More,,, ,, ,
