      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.

To Kill A Mockingbird

I mockingbird has decided my house is his house. He takes dive bomber runs on anyone that walks on my driveway or front lawn. I gotta get rid of him. Any ideas? Guns are out, I live very close to other houses.

Lighten up. It's probably nesting once the little ones are gone the attacks will cease. Locally there are two or three pix every year of Mocking birds dive bombing local cats.

I'm reasonably certain he's not trying to molest it, it's probably a physical impossibility . He just wants it to go away.

Doing anything to force the Bird to go away falls under the heading of Molesting.

 

 

BTW That is why ALL CAT OWNERS SHOULD BE LOCKED UP IN FEDERAL PRISON.

 

The non-native, domestic feline is the Number 1 killer of native Songbirds in the USA

 

You want a cat as a pet? No problem. Just keep them inside! Then lets gather up all feral cats.

I rescued a mockingbird a couple of mornings ago from my cat. This morning he was singing away in the front yard tree. Don't ask me how I know, I just do.

 

And ditto on why it is dive bombing, there is a nest close by. It will pass.

I grew up with indoor outdoor cats. They are great little hunter squirrel rats lizards rabbits etc but the biggest battle was with the blue jays. Every now and then we got a present of a pile of blue feathers. Heartwarming

In Oz there is a bird called a Magpie that does the same. Usually attacks from behind. One defence is to draw a pair of eyes on the back of an old hat. Said to be effective. Never needed to try it though.

I hate that fucker he's a fan of USCUM. I say fan rather than alumni because 9 out of 10 canes fans never attended the university. Anyway to answer your question no I live in Tampa and he lives in North Havana having washed up there during the Mario boatlift. He's essentially an illegal resident alien

That sentence is mutually exclusive. If they're God's creatures then all they're doing is returning 'em to God.

Is it ok to mock them?

 

I love the video of that black cat.... you can just see what passes for a thought process in the feline mind. "Gee, that bird is annoying.... but not so annoying that I'd actually go to the effort of standing up, abandoning my spot in the sun, and walking over to the patio and lying under the table. And, yeah, while catching it would be satisfying, it's just not worth getting myself right-side-up and jumping into the air."

Screwing is about the only hobby I can afford right now. No progress on the kitchen. I am broke as fuck tight now. Should be starting a kitchen remodel this week I'd the designer can get her shit together. Should be a decent enough job to get my ass back to zero. Once I rein in the failure of my business, I'll go back to throwing money back into the giant pit of dispair that is my house.

There was no molestation, anything the happened was consensual and mutual.

Back in Bama there was a Mockinbird that used to annoy the crap out of some poor cat. Everywhere that cat went, the bird dive bombed him, he got used to walking around with his head sort of low, but what you wrote is exactly what I thought ... that cat could have put one paw and one sharpened nail into the air and end it once and for all, that bird wouldn't have had a chance.

 

But it was apparently easier for the cat to just deal with constantly being dive-bombed.

 

I think Nacra is right, although it need not necessarily be a kill swing, just a tap. These birds have been left alone by us KFC-eating humans for so long that they have apparently convinced themselves that they are not the fragile little feather-dusters that Mother Nature made them to be. Around here, there are lots of Canadian Geese. They'll stand in front of the car on the road without worry, they'll run up to people and honk, basically making nuisances of themselves. But at any moment, they are one hand-swipe away from having their neck in fist. That would probably give them the human fear they apparently need. I stopped slowing down for them when they're in the road, lo and behold, they can move pretty fast when a ton-something truck is headed at them.

We raised Toulouse Geese for almost 20 years....they make great watchdogs...if there was something on the property day or night, they let us know.

 

Geese can be tenacious and terratorial, even if they know they have no chance of winning, something comes in their territory and usually they don't back off.
