      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.

I run into Mugabe apologists all the time - there's a ton of them who sail and post on this board. What's the big deal? We just gave them a podium.

Really? I'm not saying it isn't true in your experience but I have never......never.....ever.....met someone who support or defend Mugabe. But then, I don't hang about in the U.N.

There are many - one immediately comes to mind a tall fellow from South Africa - lives in the US now as a painter.

Yes, I've been uncovered - I spend four hours in makeup before I arrive at the UN. I'm actually Bahn Ki Moon.

I've never even heard of a Mugabe apologist. I guess you learn something new every day - in this case that some people can defend the indefensible.

I'm a Zimbabwean refugee whose family was a victim of Bob's thugs...This is ridiculous, no-thing in their right mind would think this is anything other that a joke....a sick one at that. Really sad thing is that Zimbabwe is a fabulous country and could be a great place to visit if only we could get rid of our "Tourism Ambassador"

This just shows how out of touch the U.N. is. They honor a dictator who has enriched himself at the expense of millions of citizens while they waffle around while Assad and his cronies in Syria murder their own people.

 

It is time for smart countries to stop supporting this idiocy.

Precisely. I would give my left nut and all my cash to see just ONE strong dignified leader of this country jump off the PC wagon and make a stand. If our president had any balls at all he would not only condemn such a ludicrous appointment but at least threaten to withdraw from the UN and kick their sorry asses out of New York.

 

I've lived 65 years now and am still waiting for Mr. Smith going to Washington. So sad...

 

edit: just saw Mark's correction (thanks Mark!). Doesn't change my views at all unfortunately. "Arcane Politics of the UN"??? WTF? That's an unacceptable explanation.

One of the dumbest things I've ever seen on this forum. Zimbabwe wasn't always poor, it's poor because Bob and his mates fucked it up and stole the countries wealth. Anyway any event that bring in revenue will only enrich the fuckers at the top.

Cuba is not as poor as Zimbabwe and Zambia.

 

This may surprise you, but isolation is not always as effective at regime change as it was in Cuba. Oh wait...nevermind...

Ima gonna go all PA on yer asses now....apologies ahead of time.

 

If this country really believed in human rights, none of the above would be written. ie: Bob and his cronies would never be allowed to rape his people and his country. Soveriengty you say? Fuck that. The fact is almost 7 Billion human beings live on this tiny miracle of a spinning globe and with all the technology and science we have available this day and age, there is no justification for any human to be forced to suffer more than their genes and/or human condition already causes. The primary reason for all the shit that happens to good people are borders and the fuckers that use those borders as reasons & excuses to control the masses and steal, rape, and plunder what should be available to all. The other cause, of course, is fanatatism. Religion in any form creates fanatics, and is one more method of controlling the masses for personal gain. There is only one deadly sin in my opinion. GREED. And greed is all that I see...in every molecule around us.

 

Show me a man/woman today that does ANYTHING altruistically, any so-called leader that does ANYTHING good that is not for personal gain, and I'll show you an alien that just landed their saucer.

 

Sorry guys & girls. Guess I needed to jump on a soapbox and vent. I'm in my twilight years now and am very concerned about the future for you younger folks. DO NOT ignore history or you will be doomed to repeat it. There are extremely evil people on this planet that will fuck you over in a heartbeat. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance and all I see is everyone rolling over and taking it up the arse. The Patriot Act is shit. The Medical Community are required to ask each patient if they are Hispanic. WTF??? Why is no-one marching in the streets??? You are allowing the Federal Government to violate Federal laws!!! Even seat-belt laws are an afront to personal choice. I've never heard of anyone not wearing a seatbelt kill another. The ads against smoking paid by your tax dollars are absurd and completely ineffective. The war on drugs??? Fuck me if that isn't a cluster-fuck...in a bad economy. That crap has emboldened the states. California is bat-shit crazy. Local municipalities like SF are off the charts. The government's job is NOT to protect you from yourself. It's job is to protect you from others. Their power continues to grow to a tipping point. Mark my words. An evil SOB can walk right in and crush all of you tomorrow. Wouldn't surprise me at all if it turns out to be some corporate CEO. Power corrupts absolutely.

 

Can't fight city hall? Bullshit. We changed a ton of things for the better in the 60's and created the best ever rock & roll at the same time.

Addendum to above rant: Now NYC Mayor Bloomburg wants to ban sodas over 16oz??? WTF?? THAT'S the most important item on NYC's agenda??? How dare the arrogant prick! He should be impeached in 24 hours for such an absurd and insane dereliction of duty and then sent to Riker's Island mental ward.

 

I don't drink soda at all, mind you. Never ordered one over 16oz in my life when I did. But...I will defend everyone's right to sell or consume whatever the fuck they want to ingest with my life.

 

I'm tellin ya kiddies...they are going fuking bonkers with power. You need to put an end to it once and for all.
