      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.

Is anyone gonna sign up for this one? Looks like just two FT 10's have signed up so far (we know that there will be more local 10's for sure) more entries will bring more people. What's up with the mixed phrf sportboat fleet?

Why is everyone waiting until the last minute to sign up? Seems like it would have been on the calendar all year since it's an N/A championships. I'm also wondering what's up with the sportboat fleet.

Saw one out of town boat Ruckus motoring in on Sat as we were waiting around for the CRA race to start. Only a few more days to go. Looking forward to some good racing at CYC.

Does this mean everyone is going to have to add a topless Cougar to their crew?

Exciting finish to the championships and it really came down to the very last race to decide the podium.

Thanks to all the skippers and the crew for participating -- this was not the event to miss. 3 days of almost perfect Tiger conditions 8-12 kts flat water with only one race being dodgy (light and puffy). The quality of racing was as high as I have seen for our class. The champion boat really deserved it, well sailed guys!

 

Big thanks to the CYC folks for hosting. Looking forward to the next big one (did I hear someone say ISAF?)

Ton of Photos and Video up-loading at the moment

 

Bob when I watch these guys dicing it up in so many different conditions I often think of Who made such a Great Racer Happen

 

The FT-10m was the offspring of the CessPool ThinkTank that is the SailingAnarchy Forums Conceived in threads that can still be read

 

Like the MAD Man who Created Frankenstein YOU were able to ferret out the bad ideas and pull together what was most desirable for Performance & Cost

 

When I see FT-10s battle each other I am amazed at how well they can be sailed and the rewards of sailing it correctly (The Boat Waaay Out Front)

 

BUT What I Love the Most is watching one of your children Walking some boat costing 3-5X more in mixed events = N2E etc.

 

Well I got to get back to work so you can see the PIX

 

Oh Wait ...................................................................... I think I might have something to take some of the pain out of the wait

Congratuations John and crew on Justice! A hard-fought and well-deserved victory. Also congratulations to everyone who sailed...it sounds like everyone had a good time, and that's what it's about. Wish I could have joined you guys.

 

A special thanks to Tim (Clewless) who spent countless hours organizing this event and getting it off the ground with great participation.

 

There is no better boat for SoCal...Tigers rule!

Thanks Woody. All credit should go to Bill S. who had the balls to think up the program and get it started. He took a lot of hits on SA but while he prides himself on being gruff he is a great guy and a very fair guy. I have always enjoyed spending time with him. You have been a good cheer leader for the class and I appreciate that.
