      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.

Show up your pedicabs! Maybe Grumpy can pimp them in his hood... Seriously, a nice interview and it really brought to light the severity of the water levels there.36 feet! My Mom lives on LakeLanier and it got pretty bad there a few years ago but nothing like that.

Way to go Gouv! Just one question. You are making pedi-cabs to see you through the business drought, does that mean you are now a pediphile?

 

 

Yeah, yeah, coat, hat, I'm outta here...

Probably only in Austin which is so cool they always wear their sunglasses at night there. You see Austin isn't really a Texas city even though it is the capitol. I am pretty sure there is a plan that if Texas secedes from the US, they will leave Austin behind, surround it with a wall or something like West Berlin back in the day. Welcome to Austin, an island of culture in a vast redneck sea. Austin is where all of the old hippies go to die. It is the only city in Texas where a guy like Gouv can get away with hair that long on a man his age! :P

Cools beans, Gouv. I'm wondering if any of your pedicabs are down here. They're all over downtown but seem to be the open variety. I much prefer them to the horse drawn sparkly carriages.

Good media. Sure looks as if you are going to need more than just 'some' rain in order to fill the lake. Is the water bieng deverted that is supposed to be there?

 

Sail safe!

Damn you and your hurricane! How about a nice slow tropical depression? Storm surge makes me nervous.

 

And as it has been stated before, there are no natural lakes in Texas.

Not how I pictured him.

 

I think that would be true of most people here on SA if we have never met them. In real life I am 6'6", 240 lb., middle aged white male, with short gray hair.

Finally, a face and demeanor to go with an SA acquaintance. In this case, impressive and eloquent, Fred.

It triggered a dream last night where I was in a room full of us bozos, sipping drinks and wearing name tags, with the Gouv holding court.

Go pedicabs.

In the dream Snaggs was quite popular but invisible, just a name tag, so in curiosity I went looking for DoRag...

What, you never walked into a church and looked up to see an old white guy with flowy hair painted on the ceiling?

 

Sure he'd have to lose those stupid glasses and the paper suit plus I don't think anyone here wants to see him wearing just a towel ..........

nice job, gouv.... glad to see you are getting the word out about this. and wtf? you don't need a diet.... :)

I am building fiberglass parts for two local guys who bought a Seattle Company called Tipke Pedicabs. Tipke was formed by some wise fellow for making transportation availble during the Wrld's Fair that left the Space Needle as its landmark.

 

The seat parts shown in the video are my first seats off my new molds made 7" wider as American asses have grown since the seventies.

 

The guys who bought the Tipke company are a couple pretty impressive youngsters. They have a big van and a huge trailer which they load up and go places when they think there is money to be made. They do go to new Orleans during the Mardi Gras and have permits to operate in NO. They also went all the way to both the Republican and Democrat conventions this year and made money doing it.

 

Other jaunts include Rangers homestands in Arlington and big football weekends.

 

I am having a blast doing the pedicab stuff for a whole lot of reasons.

1. The enthusiasm is infectous

2. I haven't built full size molds since the seventies ( just motor mounts for J-24, a one meter long RC boat, and some other tiny things)

3. The fact I was already doing the pedicab molds and parts let me say yes when the

Guy asked me to build his toys in the USA.

3. I haven't run a fiberglass parts production department since 1980 and by summer I may have a whole new building dedicated to doing just that.

4. If we have the capacity to build small fiberglass parts...it is a lot shorter jump to building some sort of small boat and despite fears I am way way ahead of myself, i am already talking to people about my first love, doing something that could be very very big in the world of small boat sailing.

 

And as for that "needing a diet??" I am 60 lbs heavier than when I last ran a fiberglass production shop and at least 30 of that slows me down in a laser no matter how hard it is blowing...not to mention the fact people my age and shaped like me regularly grab their chests and forever stop doing anything.

 

It realy is time to SERIOUSLY start pimping the regatta so I will sign this one>>>

Is Lance Armstrong pimping a pedicab in Austin? Maybe not if there is any drug testing.

 

Well done Gouv. May your water levels rise. There are some good size boats in that puddle.

It's still 120 feet deep in that puddle. It's weird that it went to this level 2 years ago and has just kinda stayed there.

 

I'm also sure there isn't a pedicab driver here that could pass a drug test.
