      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.

Nice win. Rangers looked a little out of sorts in the bottom half of the second period. Glad that Torts whipped them into shape for the 3rd.

The play the Rangers are bringing are pushing Brody to the limits of what he does. The level of focus that Brody needs to read each shooter gets tougher, and more tiring. The Sen's Andy uses Brody's read and sprawl strike but he does it better. If the Rangers were able to get past Andy they should have no problem getting past Brody.

The Isles do suck. Shame really. But they always have four in a row in the early 80s.

So when I say Go Devils, what I am really saying is that the Rangers should eat shit and die.

Par for the course - Rangers win a game, they lose the next. At least they had some energy out there for this loss.

The Lakers and the Clippers are out. Hopefully this improves the quality of the ice for the final.

Sad to see the Rangers go. Backing the Kings b/c the enemy of my enemy is my friend. And b/c I think it's good for the game overall if they win.

I feel for Marty. He's making some great saves, but his boys can't buy a goal on Quick.

 

(that first goal last night was total bullshit, when a goalie stick-traps the puck against his pads that's a frozen puck in my book)

 

Yes LA is going to go, but I'd really like NJ to make a series out of it, if only to extend the season by a few days!

I can't see Brody going much farther after this. And I can't help but think of Ryan Smyth's continued run of bad luck to leave the Kings right before he finally had a chance to bring home the Cup.

One good thing of this series ... nobody saw it coming. The NHL continues to show that it has more parity than any of the majors. For all that's wobbly under Bettman, it's good to see that the big stuff works well.

There's truth in this, but the hot goalie syndrome has a lot to do with it too!

Crosby: 12yrs $104million - Dumb

 

Quick: 10yrs $58million - Smart

 

Brodeur and Parise are on the block, Devils must be getting creative.

I don't know if it's dumb. Risky, yes. His cap hit is only $8.7m per year. Pretty damn good IF he stays healthy.

Maybe it was just that the Flyers pushed the right buttons, but Crosby seemed to be spending more energy starting punk-ass bullshit (which the rest of the team then had to manage) than he was generating offense. It seemed like the team was stronger while he was out.

 

Devils kept Brodeur, but at this point I'd be (pleasantly) surprised if they could hang onto Parise.

In '72 JP Parise was chosen to play on team Canada against the USSR. No one could understand this at the beginning. At the end everyone could. Along with Wayne Cashman (who), they controlled the corners and end boards. Zach probably has more finesse than his pappy but not the same grit and heart. He is just an example of big-money hockey.

I'd really, REALLY like to see Parise in Minnesota. Suter too!

 

The scary one would be if Parise goes to Pittsburgh. YIKES!

Heard the rumours, but never thought it would happen. You have to think of them as a real contender now.

It's nice to finally have something go well for the home squad. I'm not super stoked about the contracts, especially Suters. Bottom line is that if the front office didn't do something to improve the team, the "team of 18,000" was going to become the "team of 10,000" pretty quick. I also like the additions of Torry Mitchell and Zenon Konopka, along with signing Granlund (mark my words, that kid will be a superstar in a few years). Now, Mike Yeo has ZERO excuses to not make the playoffs!
