      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.

Well, I thought maybe I was dreaming last night when I heard some different kinds of noises coming from somewhere out in the woods, around 0130. But it looks like my suspicions are confirmed. Great..... :P

 

 

http://myfwc.com/wil...ls/land/coyote/

 

From your linky...

 

"There is no closed season on coyotes in Florida. Legal methods of take are by gun, bow or snare. Steel traps and hunting at night with a light can be conducted only by special permit issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, and use of poisons to kill coyotes is illegal."

 

Might be a prob for you getting a hunting license, let alone the night/light permit bein' an undocumented alien and all :ph34r:

 

Trust me, nobody in Florida, well except our own gaytor, will mind if you kill a 'yote or three.

Boothy -

 

If you see a coyote - blast it. Don't think - just do it. My neighbor lost calves - and I've given my son instruction that when I'm not home to grab the .30-.30 or my 12 gauge outta the gun safe and blast any of 'em he sees. You don't want the pack gettin' comfy at your place - our kids and pets won't be safe from bein' bothered.

 

Oh yeah - after a while - the bugs will leave ya alone - 'cause you'll start to smell like someone from there, and not someone from off somewheres. :-)

cigars, constantly lit - are also a help.

It comes & goes but I'm guessing there's been at least an inch and a half of it already today. Which is about a fifth of what Hell-A gets in a year. But at least it's a warm rain so my twenty two day streak of wearing shorts and go-heads is still going DiMaggio strong.

9). The fuking DMV told me that I need to produce my original S/S card before I can get a driver's license. Which would be fine.....except that I haven't seen it since the late 70's. Add to that that they also wanna see my original birth certificate (yes, the long form one), which is another document I can't find. And it also doesn't help that not only did my Kali drivers license expire back in November, but my passport did also---3 days ago.

 

1. Renew your passport

2. Use new passport to do all that other crap.

 

Or take the opportunity to change your name to Skink and run for governator.

I'll pitch in to buy him an orange jump suit and shower cap

Supply vessel in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Actually we're a deep well stimulation vessel. Basically a floating roto-rooter. Large pumps sending acid, sand, mixed fluids down the well to clean it and stimulate the fluids in the drill well to come up the piping. the boat is chartered by Halliburton for various oil companies but run by us.

Since I don't have a fishing licence yet ('cuz I basically still have no fuking legit ID, aside from a datec photo of me in a newspaper from '75), I just went for a ride and sat back and learned how to catch the elusive Blue Crab of Big Bend. It's really complicated, probably harder than fly fishing for Golden trout in the High Sierras. But in a nutshell, here's how you do it;

 

1). Tie one rotten raw chicken leg to a piece of clothes line. Toss it waaaay the fuk out into the canal---five, six feet will do.

 

2). Pop open a Busch.

 

3). Knock back three big gulps.

 

4). Put beer down, slowly pull in clothes line, keeping an eye on rotten chicken leg. Blue crab should be hanging on, munching away.

 

5). Snag hungry crab with six foot long scoop net. Put crab in ice chest, finish beer.

 

6). Wash, rinse, drink, repeat. Again. And again. And again......

That chickenleg method brings back a lot of memories of when I was young lass.

Isn't the water clear enough around those parts to wade with the net and scoop the fuckers up, thus bypassing the chicken dance? Just drag the cooler (attach those swim noodles around the outside of it) behind you so your not too far from your beer.

Some may have missed the critical part of this procedure. The chicken must be rotten. Green and stinky. I learned this one frustrating day on a bridge, watching the people next to us haul in crab after crab on their stinky chicken while our fresh chicken sat on the bottom, uneaten.

 

When they got enough and prepared to leave, they took pity and gave us the gift of stinky, green chicken. We caught a buttload of crabs. Then I spilled the crab bucket, causing a scene that was funny beyond my ability to describe it.

Little-known blue crab fact: when you go to the Chesapeake area to eat their famous blue crabs, there is a fair chance that the crabs you eat were caught by the Peace River Seafood Company right here in Punta Gorda. Our harbor has way more than we could eat.

Very similar critters. They come up into fresh water to spawn. This is the neighbor kid, who sometimes catches them in the creek and puts them in my pond. They get pretty big in there. The only thing in the pond that will kill them is a bigger blue crab.

Yep. Either there,Central America or Indonesia. Canned crab is almost never "native" Chesapeake crab. With pretty tight restrictions on the Chesapeake harvest to protect the health of the fishery, others have stepped in to meet the demand.

Man, that brings back memories of my childhood in coastal GA. Without the beer, though. I didn't start that until I was 16 or so and by then I'd moved inland. Good times!
