      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

WINTER ANARCHY PARTY

149 posts in this topic

Please allow me a quick bloviation: It's unfortunate some people didn't enjoy themselves and/or didn't find it rewarding in some way. One can't please everyone all the time. Personally, I didn't go because I have a bump knee and didn't want to wait in the mosh pit "lines" w/crutches for Gooseweiser. But, if memory serves, those lines are there every year. This should not have been a surprise - it happened even under the Go Irish administered WA.

 

Harden up shin dicks.

 

 

shin-dick

 

Using a woman's shin as an aiming device by resting the penis on her shin right before ejaculating for full facial targeting practice.

The only way he was able to hit her perfectly in the eye was by using the classic shin-dick position.

buy shin-dick mugs & shirts

shin-dick:

when you are acting like a cunt a woman will use the shin-dick technique, a strike to the shin with a stiletto then a knee to the dick...just to remind you that you are a cunt.

I don't know, not sure what else went/is going on, but Nautigirl was very gracious and nice to me personally and my personal opinion is I don't think she deserves getting slagged in this way.

 

It wasn't her fault or Vegas's fault that the Bottom Lounge sucked for this gig.

 

Can't we all just get along.

 

:(

 

You're welcome. Perhaps you can see how it might have seemed misleading. It was late. No one knows how you got so drunk with drinks so hard to come by.

 

Getting the room picked up, SA banners down, making sure the coat check girl Patty was tipped and any leftover swag was returned to the sponsors fell on the few still standing.

Despite the mixed crowd, the nonexistent drinks, poor staffing, etc... It was no herculean effort to put forth a smile and enjoy an evening with fellow sailors on a snowy Chicago night.

 

Of course being blindsided the next day with random apologies from the host seemed odd but it didn't take away any of the fun. Was it unsettling to discover why, how and by whom. No well intending person wants to find out after the fact they were being played all along.

 

There was absolutly nothing anyone could have done at the time to fix what many perceived as poor planning. Those who made the best of the situation played through and had a great time. The others who'd rather pout then, as to bitch and blame later clearly did not.

 

Bottom line. If you didn't go what does it matter... you weren't there.

whatever slag, you could easily have sent a pm to vegas (or heriberto for that matter) unless you were hell bent on calling attention to yourself...bravo, well done, its all about you now. so the venue sucked, not the first time or the last. bfd.

you aren't doing yourself, or your ridiculous "nauti brand style", any favors.

i am sure your "girls" were lovely, they sure are cute as can be, and by all accounts they were personable, attractive and nice, but anything you are involved in, no fucking way would i attend or promote.

filthy low rent incompetent whore? drama mama? mt gay drink slinging hoes?

Harden up shin dicks.

Bump knee

noun

 

a condition of one less degree than 'shin dick', where one's knee is bumped by one's dick, as opposed to one's dick to shin.

 

 

"I would have gone to the party, but all the shin dicks there would make my bump knee look as to be lacking."

For what it's worth, glad to meet so many new faces and see so many old ones. Not a fan of the venue, and never would have promoted it had I known we'd share it with a full-bore salsa jam for the whole night. That said, there was lots of energy, latinas, and even some yachties on the dance floor, and I had a great time.

 

Thanks for your hard work Vegas and Cara and whoever else made it happen. Next year we'll figure something out that works a bit better, and where I can give all these shirts away without risking the wrath of the salseros.

 

And I spent about 140$ on drinks for a 'free party' but I'm OK with that. The vodka was tasty enough to have 12 of them, it had better be!

There were a bunch of UK Hats, UK Coozies, some gloves, Line Honors Shirts and Belts, Harken Hats, Lip Balm from Joshua Tree, Sail 22 Beer Coozies, Two UK Bags, WEST SYSTEM Wooley Caps - and Krash from Zhik was downstairs giving stuff away too - Sail 312 was there giving stuff away too -

I gave away two new Puma vests that retail for almost 300 each IIRC, two hats, and a couple of line honors belts. Had a big box of shit to give away but not really the kind of party that worked well with that kind of thing, so I hung on to a lot of it for the next one. Nauti gave me a Prada shirt and a Nauti hat, Torresen's coozies, and saw a bunch of Zhik gear floating around. Thanks to all!

Thou I had no intentions of attending this Shin-Dick event, I did. And let me tell you this, I enjoyed myself....

 

Cons -

 

-Charged $8 to get in as a non drinker = bullshit (whatever, keeps the lights on)

-Waiting 15 minutes for 7up = HUSD

-Salsa music = prison rape soundtrack

-No food options upstairs (we only went downstairs to leave)

-No knifes were brandished in my presence

 

Pros -

 

-Seeing all my friends (both of them)

-Got a couple new hats to throw in the lake this year

-Saw Shrek's (Vincitore/Thirsy Tiger Shrek) long lost twin brother = Grizzly Shrek

-Broke into Ro! SUV and stole his of big bag of anal dildos, the Sisters Of Mary Immaculate & St. Philomena where a little disturbed when I drove by the convent and started throwing them at their front door.

-leaving cups of urine on the table by the coat check and watching people drink for them and making that hysterically funny face...

You should have asked for the keys blubs...they would have saved you breaking the fucking window...can I have my good backpack back..you can keep the underwear...

 

Anytime I can put a smile on the nuns faces is a good night for me these days....

 

All those dudes with their hats on sideways downstairs should have been a clue when vegas scoped the joint out....

We need to just take over some old man dive bar. How hard is that... There are plenty of old craptacular bars out there that we could overrun. .

 

Upfront cost? Nothing... everyone gets a mount gay hip flask (filled) on the way in the door.. each additional hip flask cost $5... beer tub girl selling $1 goose island beer (in the new cans), proceeds got to the bar.

 

20 pizzas get delivered, cups, mixers, and ice set up with access for all. Hell, lets get the 'Details' chics..

A location near the Sheraton and Navy Pier , would be convenient. PJ Clarke's comes to mind, but there certainly are others.

Best is always a dive bar that would otherwise be empty. My preference for these kinds of parties is to buy a couple of kegs, throw a grand or two of sponsor cash at drink specials, and run our own show with maybe a PA set up for iPhone music and mic'd contest giveaways and boat races and stuff.

 

Bar gets guaranteed money for drink specials, food, kegs, and the promise of a couple hundred patrons drinking after the keg runs out.

 

We get our own music, space, and the ability to talk to one another without old weathered latino dudes getting in our faces.

 

Everyone wins.

 

We did this at M24 Worlds and had over 300 people attend, and it was epic. We started the Anarchy CRW party a few years ago, and that thing is standing room only too. One keg, a few snacks, and some drink specials, along with a screen with some sailing shots from Photoboat...it works!

 

The other alternative is to somehow convince NMMA to let us rent out a room inside Navy Pier, or make a deal with one of the bars there - but they are small and insanely priced.

Navy Queer is out of the question. Union bartenders, over priced liquor...

 

Richards - 491 N Milwaukee Ave

- too small, but a great shithole

 

The Hideout - 1354 W Wabansia Ave

- Has the room, not too far via cab from dwntwn

 

Deluxe 669 N Milwaukee Ave

- Not really a dive bar, good sized, easily taken takeover via 'Drunken Flash Blob' ⌐.

 

Weeds - 1555 N Dayton St

- Might not get a deal here..

 

Cut Rate Liquors - 1656 W Division St

- Vegas can stab as many people here as he pleases, This place is a true 'Dive FUBAR'™ My old roommate saw a guy run into this place with a machete and buryed it into some fuckers shoulder. Regulars acting irregularly, regularly...
