      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.

Andrew Breitbart R.I.P.

Somebody should call a Waaaaahmbulance....

What I'd like to know, is when the hell does he find the time for the Practice of Medicine...?

 

And, doesn't his "Staff" - while burdened with the chore of processing all those Medicaid/Medicare claims and whatnot - get in the slightest bit annoyed, that he spends so much of his precious time posting here?

Picture his elderly patient in an exam robe, sitting on the edge of a cold exam table with his feet dangling a foot off the ground, waiting for Dr. Jellyfinger to finish his PA post in his office before angrily returning for the prostate exam.

I would guess that the "K, I," and comma key don't smell that great.

 

Civility from the Left. Lie, cheat, steal, denigrate, but at all costs avoid.

 

Breitbart had you pegged. You hated him because he told the truth about ACORN and everything else that crawled out of the liberal sewer. It's no wonder you celebrate his death. Here's what the hippies had to say about him in Rolling Stone:

So Andrew Breitbart is dead. Here's what I have to say to that, and I'm sure Breitbart himself would have respected this reaction: Good! Fuck him. I couldn't be happier that he's dead. http://www.rollingst...douche-20120301

So Breitbart spitting on Kennedy's grave wasn't crude and unseemly, it was a *public service*.

OK - got it :rolleyes:

Classic...

 

Because, of course, your post does PRECISELY that, if it is to be considered a reply to the previous posts you've just quoted...

Although I thought I made it clear earlier in this thread, I most definitely DO NOT "celebrate" Andrew Breitbart's death...

 

We should all be saddened, the world has lost a marvelous Entertainer...

Even when I call you on it, you can't stop.

 

It's just impulse at this point, isn't it?

Off topic, but for a laugh, google up Matt Tabbi's reviews of Tom Friedmans books.

What's really amazing is who the wing-nuts detach themselves from all logic and reason to support their team, even when the argument is doomed to fail and is against their own interests. I'm beginning to think the whole birth control thing is a moderate Republican ploy seal crazy Santorum's fate in the primaries. Why else would McConnel ever have allowed such a loser to get to the floor?

Agreed, but we're gonna turn that around once we get the right to vote given to the Americans that really make things happen in this country.

In fairness to Breitbart, he wasn't "spitting on his grave" as the Senator's corpse was still cooling and he hadn't actually been buried.

It's going to be a LOOONG Silly Season this time around, Obama hasn't actually started campaigning yet.

 

I'm kind of happy that I will probably be on a boat well off shore for the election and immediate aftermath.

You hated him because he told the truth......about CNN and stuff like that!

 

Yeah, I really liked his honorable video reporting with O'Keefe. A real "fact finder"....for sure!

If that guy O'keefe drops, the world will be another notch better.....

 

Breitbart, who gave O'Keefe all his money and airplay, then acted like he didn't support this type of thing! Wow.....

 

I guess, NGS, that larve trains begets other larvae.

 

"CNN's Scott Zamost reportsthat during the production of a CNN documentary series on young up-and-coming conservative activists, infamous "ACORN pimp" James O'Keefe hatched a strange plot to pull a prank on CNN Investigative Correspondent Abbie Boudreau, involving a staged seduction attempt on a boat, with candles and dildos. Huh, what?"

The amazing thing is that righties honor a guy like that! Instead of a clown, he's called an "activist". He's a bigger ho than then one he dressed up as.

Weather permitting departure date is November 4th, should take me 7-8 days.

 

The downside is I will probably get updates via the daily SSB nets, but that's about it...
