      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.

ok, qualifiers: it was perfect FT10 weather; we got a lucky and persistent shift on the first upwind; result was fast tiger = and yes, all of our good friends and competitors can post a similar night when they kicked our butt...

 

 

Crew was 3 adults and 2 12 year olds. Key competitors were 2 J109s, SC37, and a J111.

 

 

 

Have to enjoy things when you can...Fall is here.

unfortunately there has been a lot of disinformation about the Tiger 10, those that sail them know the real story, as the video shows it can hold its' own, even short handed with family crew, while in the presence of formitable well crewed designs.

 

Our racer cruiser becomes the mother ship at anchor, while the Tiger becomes the boat of choice to sail, even the grand kids prefer to sail on the Tiger.

 

Well done, Charlie.

I enjoy that you guys with a team that has a minimum of crew and kids onboard was able to beat a particular J/111 with 8 people including multiple professionals onboard. Oh and your boat cost 1/4 of what the 111 did.

Very bitter Wes! If you trash all the boats you got kicked off you are going to be a very busy guy! :)

 

Why is no one surprised; lol.

Instead of apologizing it appears that Left Hook, in a chickenshit move, deleted all his posts on this thread.

 

"Poor Form, LH"; you can say that again.

 

Edited @ 3:43 PM

P.S. Instead of lurking, come out of the closet and face the music, LH.

I deleted my posts because nothing I said was meant as a personal slight to the good people on that black boat even though they were taken that way. If I could take them back I would do so but I can't so I did the next best thing. I'm not discussing this topic in public any further.

No, your words were taken exactly for what you posted; that you didn't care whether you got tossed from the black J/111 because you didn't like racing with them and was ready to walk anyway.

 

The honorable thing to do would have been not to delete your posts but to face the music for its content and apologize. But that would have taken guts.

 

Maybe you'll understand if and when you grow up.

That's strangley familiar to this quote, also in reference to that same black J/111:

 

If you want to hear why we dropped out you'll have to talk to me in private, I don't want to discuss those things publicly

 

You have a lot to learn, grasshopper. Word travels fast on LIS.

From the owner of the SC37 that the FT10 beat over the line (wow that's hard to type!), congratulations to TigerinCT on a nice race. You had that boat in the groove. Well done!

We're East Coast Swamp Yankees. Sweating is uncivilized. But being serenaded by the piano on the RC boat, that's just proper yachting!

Good move Bob. Curious how a simple vid. on one of your successes turns into a sandy vag moment.

Thats like sailing in the Land of Make Believe with Mr. Rogers. I expected to be broken out of the piano trance by some gay dude screaming "Speedy Delivery, Speedy Delivery!

Well done Charlie. What happened last night?

Last night was beautiful, our race was a touch distracted...

- the rabbit didn't really do a rabbit start as planned

- we had 4 kids and 3 adults

- the piano guy didn't show up

- I was really playing with the new sails and trying to figure the boat out, and overstood by like 0.5 miles on the first beat.

 

All that said, the new NP technora jib and main are gorgeous. I'll post some pics later as I gratuitously endorse Bob Pattison.

Thanks George.

 

As I was one of the proponents for an FT10 with a tall cabin top that would allow for standing room in a narrow interior filled with the keel box and sink counter, I hope that you are as sincere in your reply as I was sarcastic in my reply to moondance44.

 

In fact the height of the FT10 cabin top is of the same proportion as the custom built Goetz boat shown below.

I was totally sincere. I do not agree with all your arguments but in this case I knew you had my back.

um, no i'm not....in fact I don't give two shits if he does or doesn't own a boat...for about the billionth time, whether you currently own a boat or not doesn't make you any more or less qualified to opine on one design or another.

 

Stop getting you panties in such a bunch every time somebody doesn't agree with what you say...been old for about 5 years now

Where did I claim that Matt B does not own a boat and/or that he does not have the right to express his opinion on the subject of beauty?

 

You know that old saying about opinions being like .........; everyone has one.

 

As for "getting you panties in such a bunch every time somebody doesn't agree with what you say" it appears that you are the one who needs to take a chill pill.
