      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.

Any SA'ers in the printing business?

Hoping to find a printer in the SA community that is interested in helping Oceanswatch, which is a non-profit, with printing brochures in time for the Oakland Strictly Sail show.

We'd like to find someone in a position to donate or offer discounted printing for the attached brochure.

 

I recently accepted a volunteer position with Oceanswatch as a coordinator for the west coast. In addition to getting the word out, we're looking for people who would be willing to donate some time at the Oakland show. PM me for details.

"It is heartening for the Sail Maker to note that a general awakening to the importance of sails has taken place. For too long owners were content to make the inevitable economy cuts at the expense of a sail locker. What is the use of spending a year's salary on a boat only to cut down at the last minute on the very item which is going to make her go?.....

Never forget your sails are your power plant."

 

From the book Sails written by Jeremy Howard-Williams 1967

BUY AN AD!!

 

Or better yet, Buy a Booth instead of freeloading off of a charity.

 

Who was it that you freeloaded off of last year?

Radman,

 

Are you always a dick or is just when you're behind the anonymity of the keyboard?

 

Your accusations are asinine although admittedly had I thought about it I would have turned off the sig block feature to avoid any appearance of promotion of my company. The booth at the show will be promoting Oceanswatch, not sponsors. And you may see my company at a commercial booth along with other vendors.

 

We donate a percentage of our net profit to Oceanswatch and other organizations. I also donate my time to do what I can towards marine preservation and conservation.

 

As for the booth last year, I split the cost of a booth with another company last year. If you would like to challenge that assertion, I offer you a wager. If I win you donate $500 to Oceanswatch. If you win I'll donate $1000 to Oceanswatch. For me to win I submit proof that I shared the expense. If I'm unable to do so, I post a copy of a cancelled check for $1000 made payable to Oceanswatch. Do we have a wager?

I have no idea what this is all about, but I gotta ask. Who did you split the booth with?

Matt B,

 

I'd really like to return the thread to the topic of finding a printer that will offer a discount or donation....But in the interest of putting the rest of this to bed, the other vendor was Cruise RO. They supply quality watermakers and charging systems.

Ha, Ha, Hurts when it is true. So, you are going to suggest a wager to prove me wrong? Go away little man, a sailmaker working out of the back of his car doesn't have any creds.

Radman,

 

Awww that really hurts. But you know something? Our business grew by about 50% last year and we're on pace to do it again. I live in a great neighborhood and my 48' ketch sits in a nice marina. I took close to a year off to go cruising a few seasons ago and I'll be able to do it again in a few years. Your petty jealousy is pretty damn entertaining. Thanks for playing.

Send a PM to Some Dude. He has a print shop and probably will offer deep discounts to SA mates.

Pretty funny ip dude. You have an Amel 46 ketch. You got kicked off their site for peddling your unsupported goods. Where is your shop? Who provides service? Do you own a single sewing machine, have you EVER even worked on a sail, and lastly, what the fuck do you know about sailmaking besides some stupid ancient quotes?

I wish I was as well-off as you. My hope is that BHO will redistribute your wealth to the less fortunate, like me.

Why do those that want us to donate something to them get so aggressive to those that they want something for FREE...sounds like some panhandler...If one wants something..PAY FOR IT..and if you believe so much or your cause..you can also come up with the funds to try to expand your cause...

you might want to clarify to what cause you are referring unsure.gif

 

if you are referring to the original poster - Yes if you want something provide something in exchange = work for it

Radman,

 

You know nothing about me or my business so kindly STFU.

As for being kicked off the Amel site, where did you come up with that jewel of an allegation? I'm frequently on it.

3 machines and yes have worked on sails.

 

Frankly I'd love to see you put your money where your mouth is. So when you make an allegation like me being kicked off the Amel site, (actually a group), I'd like to see you back it with the willingness to make a bet.

I'll make the odds even better. You put up $100. I'll put up $1000.

If you accept the wager I'll post a screen shot of recent posts. Loser of the bet donates to Oceanswatch.

 

This thread is about finding a printing deal or donation for a non-profit called Oceanswatch. Can we get back to the topic now? Or should I just deal with my local printer who has no connections to the sailing community but can handle our printing needs?

Exactly One Eyed Jack. We're looking for either a donation or a discount on printing services. Oceanswatch is doing many good things. One project I'm pretty excited about is setting up an MMA (Marine Managed Area) in the Solomon Islands at the invite of the local government. Oceanswatch, like most non-profits, relies on donations and grants. Members have donated quite a bit including the use of various yachts.

JFC, did you pass 6th grade English? I implied you were sucking Dan Meyer's dick...you should know more about any of his grifter-like habits than I do. Seriously, look up occasionally from your knees.
