      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.

MSG Memorial Carpool & Caravan

32 posts in this topic

I'm planning to drive from Warwick, RI this weekend to attend MSG's memorial gathering.

 

I figure to leave early enough not to get screwed by construction and traffic (it's about 3.5 hours from here to there so we should be on the road no later than 10:00, perhaps a little earlier to leave a bit of a margin for error) and come back Saturday evening afterwards.

 

Anyone want to share rides, carpool, or caravan up if there are enough of you?

 

I live less than ten minutes from T.F. Greene airport for those of you figuring if this makes sense. We can certainly meet up at a park and ride or some such thing - there is one off of exit 10 on 95 or we could meet here. We can also collect people at bus/train stops if needed of course - there are both at the airport.

You are referring to a 10am Saturday morning departure from RI to head to Albany, and a Saturday afternoon (?) gathering, yes?

OK - my plan has changed. Leaving MUCH earlier, more like 0700 or so in order to get to town earlier to catch up with others.

 

Carpoolers still welcome of course, but I'm hitting the road early.

I've already told MSS I'm not going to be there. Saturday is my birthday, and I'm planning to have a bunch of friends round to look at the ocean, lift toasts to Catherine, to life and its living, and get blind, stinking drunk.

 

Seems a rather fitting thing to do, and I feel certain that Catherine would approve.

 

Perhaps I should stock in a few Sharpies.

I can not attend (BJ - you'll represent RI sailors?) but I certainly could send Sharpies along!

 

BTW - BJ? Calendar?

Thursday should be good. Friday is OK later too, but my son has a regatta in the afternoon I want to catch so not until after that.

Wes, when you and stang go to sign can you please write this for me;

 

Catherine,

 

You will always be remembered forever. Please keep an eye on my ship for me during those hard nights at sea. I'll look for you in the stars above me.

 

C/M Jesse W. a.k.a. Dubz

 

Or if Wes doesn't make it to your place BJ could you possibly write it?

I've been thinking and searching and trying (daily) to see if I could get to Albany, but I finally know now that it's not in the card$ for me to pull off a trip to NY. In other words.... no joy. :(

Please give each other long hugs from me. I will be there in spirit.

It is a beautiful crisp cool day here in Albany.

Crisp? For a Floridian in flipflops perhaps. :lol:

Downright balmy for us and unseasonably warm actually.

R1 - slammed out at boat end of startline by something I totally missed (stupid mistake) - recovered and took a 2nd

R2 - great start - awesome first beat to top mark only to snag a crab trap on our keel 1/3 way down to leward mark - doh! - 4th

R3 - great start - perfect set at top mark - fading breeze - held on for a 2nd in a shortened race

 

Great afternoon with some cool peeps on board...and thoughts of MSG woven throughout the day. B)
