      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.

So amusing. Outstanding work! You gotta love the high powered corporate advertising this fine site is beginning to attract.

 

Any sailor who bags a Hot Russian Wife should get an immediate innerview from Mr. Clean!

 

I misread your post first time... thought you said "any sailor who bangs a hot Russian wife should get an immediate innerview."

 

I would agree.

 

Not so sure about "bagging" (actually going through with the whole deal) being necessarily a positive accomplishment.

Um, you guys realize that these are not ad's that SA has contracted for, it is blank billboard space they sell to google adwords, who in turn sells it as 're-targeting' space to sites THAT YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY VISITED. Those sites are trying to get you to come back, and the ads will follow you around the internet as banners on different sites.

No, that ad isn't from any site that I've visited.

 

What I think it may be is that Google profiles individuals based on sets of cookies from sites visited, and estimates age, gender, and interests from this.

 

If every SA member is seeing this ad, then perhaps the whole site gets the ad because the average profile of the site matches up with their idea of a target market for this particular ad.

 

If only some people do, perhaps it's from their profile matching up (e.g., forties or 50's, male.)

 

In my case for example Google doesn't show any interest that would match up with this -- not from virtue, but from using Incognito mode when advisable -- unless sailing is considered to match up with interest in hot Russian wives.

 

Maybe it is.

 

Hot women in general anyway.

Ingteresting bit on Colber Report last night on how skillfully and successfully Target store tracks their clustomers. One man got mad when his teenage daughter was being targeted with ads mailed to her, offering products for new or expectant mothers. When they called him back to apologize, he replied; "Never mind, there's been stuff going on around here I didn't know about and she's due in August".:lol:

 

I swear SA'er here, dde looked at my hard drive browser history when he accused me of surfing a particular craigslist category....:D

I have no banner that appears on my SA Homepage (it does exist). I'm using Firefox and have No Script enabled and there are a number of Scripts that are blocked with no affect of SA functionality, one something called google-analyticsis and another called googlesynidication. Is this the way the banner is blocked? I also have Firefox set up to delete cookies every time it closes.

I can't believe that this Hot Russian Wife add is still on the SA home page. I thought it was either a joke or a mistake at first but obviously if it is still there it is a legitimate add. I think it is tacky and stupid. If anybody has actually attempted to get a wife off that site, they are stupid assholes!

So what you're saying is that the majority of SA people have been to this site so that is why it is on the SA home page?

Nope, just saying who is tracking. I would imagine that the banner is just an income stream but Quantcast is tracking all of SA not just the banner.

So, Scooter; how many times do I have to clicky on the russian brides link before you send me some swag??:D

This has nothing to do with gender, age, interests etc.

The common denominator between sailing and hot Russion chicks is the disposable income usually associated with boat owners.

.

That maybe some of the answer but I suspect that the whole of the answer is in the amount of pornstyle photo links, and porn linked keywords that appear on the forums. When you enter "fuck,wank,ass,pussy, etc" onto a readable and editable web page, then the search spiders will read it and pass along the info to ad bots which in turn helps googleads etc to pinpoint ads which meet the requirements of the page I'm just surprised that we haven't had BUKKAKE AND CAMElLTOE DOT COM advertising on here before now.. I suspect that it's of our own doing I'm afraid.
