      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.

Mambo and I are in the process of purchasing the tooling.

 

our plan is to build an all-carbon version. if you're intersted, PM either of us - we can build two at once and save a bit on cost.

My father, who is Minister of Energy in Nigeria, is going to front the costs for the tooling. Unfortunately due to foreign currency controls, we need to route this money through a friendly third party. We would be willing to give you the second boat for free if you could help us with this.

Grrrr.. I'd love to see new ones built. Of course, with the old ones going for 25000 - 35000 it'd be hard to bring this in at a reasonable price. Still, it's on my short list of boats, if I ever sold the Elliott.

As I seem to fund most of ultra's parties and dependencies (which are numerous), I was considering setting up a LLC to off set the tax burden. As such " SeaMonkey's Projects, Endeavors, Rehab, and Merchandising Bank will soon be a real entity. We at S,P,E,R,M Bank will be happy to launder, er clear your finances in order to facilitate the purchase of yet another toy for Ultra. We anxiously await your first deposit

Just curious, the 830 was already a very light boat how much more weight savings do you think you can get from carbon? What other changes do you guys plan on making?

Dear Mr Boneboy, I am honored to do you. It is $800,000 we will be transferring to an account of your choosing and we are glad to allow you 10% to cover your reasonable expenses.

 

Ultra sounds like a real american Yahoo, so we will set up a Monkey - Proposed Undertaking to Sell Sailboat to Yahoo account at National Grand Bank of Nigeria in Switzerland. The bank needs a small currency fee to proceed.

 

Please make a deposit from the SPERM Bank into the Monkey P.U.S.S.Y .

 

Thank you for bending over backwards to help us with this esteemed matter. This makes us very happy.

I'm confused, usually the monkey is bending over forward during transactions

Yes Honored sir. Please to watch the video again. The sea monkey is facing forward doing his transaction but then he has a problem from his backwards. This makes us very happy. Even the Mrs Mambo laugh at this.

 

This is good material for the Animal 2012 spinning sail, we say.

 

 

How many deposits have we collected for the Viper 830?

Dear Sirs Ultraracer and Mambo Kings;

 

I regret to inform you there has been an unexpected/unfortunate change of plan with regards to the funding of Viper 830 molds. It would seem that a certain "war" has been declared on SeaMonkey inc, by a certain "Team Animal". As such much of our funding will be diverted towards this campaign and the purchase of " Monkey swag" Furthermore, the grand furor of our company (wife) has gotten wind of my earlier proposal. She has subsequently invoked the Capitation Of Needless Deposits Of Money clause that is written into the constitution of the SPERM bank. She says that the clause is for my own "protection" and will provide "prophylaxis" against harmfull deposits.

 

In summary gentlemen, I fear the current application of the CONDOM clause will prevent us from seeing a "happy ending" to your dilemma.

 

Sincereley

I am not sure that the boat you own or the company you keep is condusive to "safe sailing", but good luck with that.

 

Its about time we got Ryley out on a Viper. He lives in Boston, sails in Marblehead and likes fast boats. Why hasnt someone stuck him on the business end of a Viper tiller? He should get a ride for the Marblehead NAs and help us face the wrath of the Texans.
