      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.

Some of the best nights in my life have been in Montreal. Granted some of the worst as well ;) Walking into the wrong house while looking for a friends party on shrooms and finding a family sitting around a TV comes to mind. There were 6 of us, all of us had taken our shoes off at the front door, all on various substances. I was first in unfortunately and was greeted by and angry father shouting at me in french! "WRONG HOUSE! WRONG HOUSE!" as I turn around and struggle to put my shoes on and book it. 6 of us crammed in a tiny hallway entrance trying to do the same. What a horror show. Guess everyone leaves the front door unlocked there...If you have the chance to go to McGill, GO!

 

And they also have great beer...

 

I'm going to want to hear more details come beer can season. Speaking of which, when are you splashing the boat?

Need to do a decent amount of epoxy and other work that requires warmish weather. Trying to get rid of all the deck leaks, and repair the T-Bone ding. We'd launch earlier and fix on the water, but that didn't work out quite so well last season. "Hmmm should we go sailing or fix leaks?". I think early-mid May is realistic, but if we get lots of 60's days in April then we'll crank it all out and splash her as soon as the list is crossed off.

 

Looking like we'll have 2 more boats on the line this season too! If you're bored come down and help, the other two are woodies and need some serious love to make competitive....

While your educational dollars go further in N.H. It's Fucking cold, that means the water is frozen most of the time. You would sail more with a Ice boat. If you want Hot chics you have to drive to montreal, or Boston.

When the girls find out your from N.H. in Boston you might as well turn around and make a run for the border. Canada has way better bear and women.

 

Get good enough to be invited on a boat for KWRW. No excuses!!!!!

Other than being a resident of New Hampshire I have no affiliation with the University. Even with that slimmest of connections with the institution I beg er111a to favor some other state with his intellect.

 

UNH is a dump in the middle of nowhere and after 6 years you'll emerge with a fourth rate degree barely worth the recycled copy paper your Certificate of Attendance is printed on.

I think that is a stylistic argument rather than a grammatical one. It can be taken simply as the contraction of "you all."

 

I'd absolute agree that this usage will not be advisable for him in writing college papers, or for that matter for almost any sort of professional writing. But for a forum, it's just style.

Wow, that one is right on the edge.

 

A comma really is stylistically necessary after the "well," and preferably after "being from the South" as well as this is a distinct clause, but personally I'm unable to make the call as to whether it's incorrect grammar or just poor style.

 

So it's four in a row now, I guess.

No, that one is a failure. Commas aren't just "stylistically necessary" as 'being from the south" is a clause, requiring commas.

Use "however" instead of "but" and your "sentence" needs to end with a period. Your use of "haha" is both lame and poorly punctuated.

The school has a 73% acceptance rate. My guess is that the acceptance rate is even higher for out-of-state applicants who pay more in tuition.

To answer your question more directly: he has not demonstrated that he is college material and I am amazed that he gained entrance to a university. I have to believe that the school did not have an essay requirement or that he paid a service to write his essays for him. (The usage of third parties to "review" essays shockingly prevalent even amongst the nation's top schools). I'm scared to think of his abilities in math and science. I also believe he's shown some deficiencies in critical reasoning and judgment.

I'm also somewhat surprised that he has not achieved the goal set out for him by trenace: 5 consecutive posts without grammatical errors.

 

All of this being said, we can only hope that he spends a lot of time studying. I have my doubts as he does not seem motivated to improve.

If nothing else, he has graciously provided amusement for some while severely depressing anyone who is worried about the nation's future. I still agree with your initial suggestion of finding a good vocational school.

Hopefully, he can sail better than he writes. I think that was what this website was about anyway.

Good luck Eric the Lesser / Nimrod the Younger

Went to NtY's blog to see if perhaps we were missing out on some solid, structurally sound, grammatically perfect prose...alas it was not to be. Gems like...

 

Well for starters carbon is a gas that is said to be the 4th most plentiful gas or chemical component in our universe, thus there is a lot of carbon.

 

and my favourite....

 

Carbon also forms shading or a blanket that surround our earth. This blanket has the role of blocking very hot and intense heat that shoots off from the sun and is able to maintain it in our atmosphere in order to keep the earth from becoming a frozen wasteland. (blocking hot gases from making earth a frozen wasteland?)

 

Personally, I'd guess he is at a Grade 10 level. Passion without prose, basically Wikipedia cut and paste without understanding. But does this mean that college is a step too far? I think not. If 4 years at UNH can bring NtY up to a basic level of education, say operating at a Grade 12 level (sort of like a finishing school) then he is a better person for it.

 

Good luck at UNH, at least it's a start. (you do know it's just a start - don't you?)

I'm also somewhat surprised that he has not achieved the goal set out for him by trenace: 5 consecutive posts without grammatical errors.

 

All of this being said, we can only hope that he spends a lot of time studying. I have my doubts as he does not seem motivated to improve.

Noone of thisse shoud madder you unlees you our nimrode the eldere ore wille be dependant of nty. :)

Oops, my apologies. I thought I was logged onto Sailing Anarchy.......not Sailing Unconditional Love and Support...sorry! new around here, but somehow I got the feeling that gentle mocking and derision were the currency of trade. Damn newbies eh? Always getting hold of the wrong end of the stick.

Went to NtY's blog to see if perhaps we were missing out on some solid, structurally sound, grammatically perfect prose...alas it was not to be. Gems like...

 

Well for starters carbon is a gas that is said to be the 4th most plentiful gas or chemical component in our universe, thus there is a lot of carbon.

 

and my favourite....

 

Carbon also forms shading or a blanket that surround our earth. This blanket has the role of blocking very hot and intense heat that shoots off from the sun and is able to maintain it in our atmosphere in order to keep the earth from becoming a frozen wasteland. (blocking hot gases from making earth a frozen wasteland?)

 

Personally, I'd guess he is at a Grade 10 level. Passion without prose, basically Wikipedia cut and paste without understanding. But does this mean that college is a step too far? I think not. If 4 years at UNH can bring NtY up to a basic level of education, say operating at a Grade 12 level (sort of like a finishing school) then he is a better person for it.

 

Good luck at UNH, at least it's a start. (you do know it's just a start - don't you?)

 

A start? How exactly do you expect Nimrod the Younger to be able compete in academia? Even worse, suppose he piles up $100K in debt, graduates with a C average, and can only get a job painting houses or flipping burgers. What then? BHO, in his second term, "forgives" student loans that are delinquent, as they are burdensome. Then the ultimate abuse occurrs when taxpayers are forced to underwrite NtY's loans - loans incurred so he can bob about on weekends on a FJ.

 

No, NtY has demonstrated time and time again that he will not benefit from a college education. He obviously did not benefit from a high school education. How exactly did he ever even get into a college?

 

WTF!
