      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.

Ed,

What was the breeze when we saw that picture of you hurling off the ass end? Sure looked like less than 25-30. I have no problem with owners who don't want to put a half season's wear on their mains in one day. My guess is that they have enough merit badges to not care what you think.

No dog in this fight, but I will say a Tiger is very well behaved in breeze, both upwind and down.

hey any time you two pussies wanna meet up on the race course, just let me know. like i've said about a million times, i am not interested in supporting the noods and i'm not wasting my time to go over it with dummies like you.

 

i've sailed every regatta in almost every condition in the tiger but isn't it amusing when a couple hacks try to somehow make it that i am the bad guy on this issue? if it was blowing so fucking hard, how come EVERY OTHER CLASS SAILED ON SUNDAY EXCEPT THE TIGERS??? because owners "had enough merit badges" or didn't want to flog their mains?? no, it is because the fleet is weak, as evidenced by their non-participation and the responses here.

First off, Ed who really cares what you have to say? Not as many as you'd like to think. This guy and the Tiger I race on wanted to go out, but a certain few (mainly one) tigers didn't want to. Unfortunately when that tiger said no, most others followed suit. It would have been one tiger(maybe two?) on the start line, and no way in hell would RC start a race with one tiger on the line. Whether its NOODS, Midwinters, or the SA Regatta. If you have a problemm with the NOODS then take it up with them. Dont take your little cry baby attitude out on the Tiger Fleet. Maybe if we had been in Mission bay we could have grabbed ten races like the Solings, but down in SD bay conditions didn't allow that on saturday.

 

For someone who complains all the time about politics, poor sportsmanship and oversized ego's in regattas and sailing associations like NOODS, US Sailing, and SW you sure do bring alot of your own into the mix. your not that much different then those guys ya know....

here's what i know, genius - nobody cares what you have to say. again, it is amusing to see an apologist for this lame fleet try to deflect the truth with weak slaps at me. is that all ya got? go back to the kid's table where you belong...

 

movable ballast - that ship sailed long ago...

Actually, the CorYC Race Committee did a start for two Ultimate 20's on Sunday. We would have happily done a start for two Flying Tigers.

 

Having had a blast on Elusive (24) in these kind of conditions in the past, I was more than a little surprised that the fleet didn't go out and I told the Ed so on Sunday.

 

Having been involved with setting up the South Bay portion of the San Diego NOOD for the last two years, I share the Ed's frustration with Sailing World. But, as I posted in this forum last week, I was disappointed that Anarchy wasn't on the line this weekend supporting the fleet and supporting Coronado Yacht Club.
