      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.

Really Rick? :P

Papadeaux is good chain stuff/not special, Landry's on the island is consistant, Clearys (sp?) for oysters in season, couple of places in the strand; saltwater grill, Rudy and Paco's (central american food, but does great fresh catch), not sure if M&M at the palms on 21st ever re-opened. Yagas for good and casual food.

You might try the Flying Dutchman on the Kemah Boardwalk.

 

Or, if you want an Asian influence with your fish, go to Merlion on 4th in Seabrook.

No No NO NOOOO!

 

A little bit out of the way, but you want to go to the Topwater Grill in San Leon or Hillman's Original Fish House in Dickenson.

 

Trust me on this one.

Enjoy!

 

And remember, the advice you received here was worth exactly what you paid for it...

 

Seriously though, I've never had a bad experience there at all.

really all the way to the gulf and you're going to eat off the shelf / frozen crap...

 

The ONLY place to go is Outriggers... it's under the bridge at the south end of clear lake next to the channel to the bay... and when I mean under, I mean under...

 

btw , you can run your dinghy right up to their dock if you so please... parking is tight and its very popular with everyone... flip flops, shorts, and a t-shirt is all that's needed..

Topwater was perfect. It is out of the way and all by itself but aside from great food, all the sport fishing activity made it very interesting.

Just saw this thread and another vote for Topwater and Hillman's. Landry's is consistent all right - overpriced and over hyped as are all those owned by Tillman Fertitta.

 

Another place that friends rave over is Gilhooley's, not far from Topwater. My personal experience has been mixed.

 

And as long as we are talking about Clear Lake (well now we are) a new place Cock and Bull just opened on Nasa1. Still under construction so seating is limited. Great selection of beers and people who know what they are. I've managed to hurt myself in beer edification class.

A modest hijack, but if you are ever headed south, the best seafood I've ever had.......anywhere......is King's Inn in Loyola Beach, South of Kingsville, about an hour or so from Corpus Christi

 

Next time you and friends are in Corpus Christi and have the energy, take a crowd. They serve family style and you'll want to try some of everything. Trust me on this one!

It's not really in the geographic parameters of the original post, but if you find youself at the West end of Galveston, head over the San Luis Pass causeway to Freeport.

 

The Red Snapper Inn is great.
