      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

If she sits on the ratchet block, does it become a snatch block ?

 

 

If not, then may be a cheek block.

So why does the front page ask it is hot or creepy?

 

Sheesh! Grow the fuck up.

 

It's a picture of a beautiful, athletic woman.

Even if her body is not to his taste, he's always been supportive of women in the sport. I'm bummed that he billed it the way he did. Anna pushed the envelope and anticipated criticism, but frankly this is the last place I thought I'd see anything hinting at negativity about a strong naked woman on a boat. However, I'm not a fan of that particular shot as much as the other two of her.

 

 

Overall, I am personally really stoked by the shots and her decision to do it. Go Anna!

Smokin' hot. I can't remember which Commandment deals with coveting another's wife but once again I find myself an unrepentant sinner.

 

Can't wait to see her rock it in the Olympics. Go Anna!

Could not agree more. She puts her self out there to promote the sport and gets "Hot or Creepy?" on the SA front page? Normally I love the controversial shit on here, but this is definitely one of those rare times that I was a bit bummed by what I saw...

Yeah, not your finest moment, SA. That's an awesome photo, a big plus for our sport (IMO) and she deserves props for having the chutzpah to do it. (Never mind her accomplishments in the sport of sailing.)

Not creepy, not sexy, but definitely awesome. I found myself staring.

 

I have to believe I too have a cut body like that somewhere under my fat rolls.

How much do you think she gets paid by Sports Illustrated? It IS about the money.

 

My guess is $zero, since SI had nothing to do with this rolleyes.gif

 

Not sure about ESPN. The article says that it was Dana Paxton's idea to nominate Anna for the issue, and Anna agreed after consideration and consultation with her family. Not sure if that means she gets paid or if it's a part of the Olympic brou ha ha. Either way, good on her for taking out any question about the athleticism of the sport at the highest levels (and it does make me wonder if she's a contender for Oracle racing after the Olympics).

Me thinks Scott has a very different view of sailors and sailing than myself.

 

Apparently Scott's ideal sailing image:

But they sure in the hell didn't look like this!

And I hope she wins a medal.

No not competitive at all...just the masters division at the worlds at the end of the second weather leg...and yes I was winning at that point and on over the next reach run reach two of them ( Bethwaite and Coutts) manged to pass me because I cannot go downhill for shit...

 

 

But..the boats you see except for Schlacter on 007 in 5th are way back in the fleet. The other three leaders are all in a row on the starboard layline out of the shot.

 

 

 

Isn't that photographic technology that lets you see though a person's clothing a hoot??
