      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.

That's a shame it's fallen into disrepair. I haven't seen the boat in some 30 years. Had raced against him multiple times and imagined it was named after some Roman god or general or something cool. Imagine my surprise when drifting along near him one race and I asked what it meant.

it meant you were sailing next to a boat that had sch a horrible blister problem the hull actually leaked right through the damned laminate and his trusty boat repair guy said...I really can't fix it this time..

 

 

so he bought a Catalina 30 for cruising and a Sunfish for racing.

 

 

 

and it seems to me he really enjoys each toy....and his bike that he peddals around our little hilly peninsula

A few months back my brother and I were driving towards the river when we saw a mast where it shouldn't be and at an the angle of closed hauled in 20 knots. We walked over to back side of Marriage Point in Gilchrist Park, we saw a 25 foot US Yachts on the rocks with a hole in her side. A Marine Patrol officer was there making out his report. As I walked around to the stern I saw the name and then announced "Hey, its name is Shoal Queen". The officer dropped his clip board laughing so hard.

Question: It is bad luck to rename a boat - so I have never renamed a boat I have acquired already named. My current vessel has one of those typical play on words names that would piss off whatever King Neptune you chose to believe in. Her previous two names were more benign and acceptable. Would re-christening invoke the same wrath??? I don't really like the earlier two names much either, but the one UV etched in the gel-coat isn't the worst in the world.

For my part, the first few big-boats I raced on as a kid were named "Concubine", "Mistress", "Seduction" and "Knockers". Had my mom wondering whether yacht-racing was really a sport she wanted her kid involved in (oh, if only she knew! O_O )

You're not supposed to rename a boat, paint it green, sail with women on board, or depart on a Friday.

 

Won a regatta which started on a Friday in a green boat which I had renamed and with a click on board.

 

We didn't have any bananas though.

 

Do it!

 

BTW the chick indirectly went on to cause me much more hassle than the boat did, but that's another story.

Just a clarification::

 

 

 

I started this thread to bitch about boat names that have dredged up memories of really bad yet catchy tunes that subsequent to seeing those names left me with a totally obnoxious leftover.

 

 

 

Boat names actually do tell us things about the owners of those boats.

 

 

 

I have no problem with those who wish to place a sign on the side of a boat which warns me of that craft's association with someone with whom I would likely prefer not to associate.

 

 

My own boat does not leave you singing a hard to forget awful tune but it does probably tell people I am somewhat of an asshole who happens to be old and thinks he can still race.>>

Really bad, yet catchy tune? Hard to forget? Aren't those songs called ear worms?

 

I remember there was this one a while back that was driving all the parents of young kids barking mad. Hardly a day would pass in the cube farm without hearing some adult humming or singing the purple dinosaur song:

 

i love you

you love me

we're a happy family

with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you

won't you say you love me too

 

Bet you're reading it in Barney's voice, too, huh? It's just horrible when you can't get it out of your mind, isn't it?
