      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.

Score: Dead Chechnyan Muslim Terrorist 1 - Univ. of R.I. 0

51 posts in this topic

University of Rhode Island President David Dooley, in a decison that sets an example of cowardice that his students will remember all of their lives, has recently decided to move the URI 2013 commencement ceremony from its traditional outdoor venue on the URI quad, to an indoor gymnasium. The reason given is to promote safety and security. To protect the institution from any potential attack from terrorists that may be motivated to kill Americans that like to celebrate life achievements outside.

 

Although Boston bomber Tsarnaev's widow was living in a nearby town with her parents, the Ocean State can hardly be called a hotbed of terrorist activity. Needless to say the students are very dissappointed and have begun protests and petitions to reverse the decision. But URI partents like me, are also affected. Because of the newly created space limitation, guests will be limited to only two invitations per student. Therefore I will need to tell the large family contingent that was planning on sharing and celebrating my daughter's achievement to stay home. Sorry Grandma. Typical of college graduations, out of towners have booked non refundable hotel rooms and made restaurant reservations and party plans a year in advance for this weekend. Now we have to tell them they cannot attend the main event.

 

Now of course we can all still go and spend the weekend up there, and 6-8 people can amuse themselves while two of us sit in a stifling hot, smelly gymnasium for a few hours on what will likely be a beautiful and sunny spring day in New England. But the loss of seeing one's grandaughter in teh main ceremony is very dissappointing for someone like a Grandma who never had that opportunity. And it will only happen once. It is also dissappointing for the recipient not to have her family there to see her getteh recognition for the diploma with honors she has worked so hard for.

 

But the more important issue is this is an example of caving in to fear. An unreasonbable fear at that. Real leaders in these situations encourage people to get on with it, and live their lives normally. Otherwise the terrorists win. This is exactly the type of behavior people like Tsarnaev were hoping we would engage in. He is probably laughing in his anonymously provided new grave site. Did you assist him in finding that grave site President Dooley? Recall what advice people like Giuliani and Bloomberg gave after 9/11 in New York, in a traditionally real terrorist target location.

 

President Dooley is new to New England. He comes from Montana where he maintains a home (he is reimubursed by URI for multiple visits home per year by the way). Maybe he went there after the Boston Marathon. In Montana, I would imagine, these types of threats are probably not frequent. But wait a mnute, there is no threat! This is a precautionairy measure only. No threats have been recieved by the University which is located in a sleepy little isolated town. So perhaps he is not accustomed to the way Quahogs deal with such adversity. Quahogs and Rhodies don't hide in their homes. They get on with it. So Mr Dooley, I ask that you please take off your skirt and teach these young people how to react to modern issues with conviction and resolve,and steadfastness. Not fear. Because they probably will be encountering real situations that require a firm resolve as they move ahead in their lives. And the example you are setting for them is sadly not what any parent wants to pay for when they send a kid off to college. Its not too late to change this ridiculous decison. Remeber this quote? 'The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself'.

Ours was moved indoors too, due to a storm front moving in. Congressman Bonner spoke. Security was light if existent at all. Great day except for the weather.

 

As for moving indoors due to a perceived threat, I hope the student's voices are heard. Caving in is a sign of weakness and fear.

With the fire this past week, smoke in the air, lots of my guys.......guys I trained as rookies.........loaded up and headed north. I had a martini, sat in the jacuzzi, and watched it on TV.

 

Weird.

Oh man Mrs. PB has kept the schedule FULL! Lets see......so far............

 

We did a week in Cambria on the beach. Then we did a week in Sedona hiking including a Grand Canyon hike - down from the south rim, spend the night at Phantom Ranch and back up the next day.

 

Next week we're headed to Sonoma for some wine.

 

All of June we are in England hiking Wainwrights famous Coast to Coast (190 miles in 18 days) then a few days in London.

 

July August and September - boat, boat boat........coastal harbor hopping, Catalina, Channel islands. (Mooring at Catalina just came through - been on the lists for years!)

 

October - Hawaii for a few weeks.

 

Jan 2014 - Bahamas for diving/underwater photo's (Mrs PB's passion) followed by St. Kitts at a resort with kids/grandkids.

 

Later that spring we're bareboating croatia followed by bareboat again in greece (with a few days in Montenegro in the middle)

 

Mrs PB is also trying to books conscious breath adventures for liveaboard humpback snorkeling on the silver banks.

 

Oct 14 - Baja Hahahaha and stay down for a season poking around Cortez.

 

I think she thinks I'm gonna croak soon and wants to squeeze the most mileage out of me in the interim! <_<

Someone mentioned language barriers in France.... I know a handful of words in French, but when I was visiting, agreed with some buddies that if any of us ever got into any trouble, we would say one of those words and let the chips fall where they may.

 

We had a diesel van, and were on some highway, I can't remember where, now that it's 30 years later, except that it was in France. Perhaps between Paris and Calais. At any rate, we stopped for fuel, and an attendant put regular gas in the tank, unbeknownst to us. Off we go, onto the on-ramp to a very express expressway, when the thing starts to sputter and kick. So we pulled to the side, and started backing up in the breakdown lane, to get back to this place; not far, a couple hundred yards, tops. I was looking back from the passenger side window, calling direction. Just before getting back to the station, a security guard walked near our path, and it was clear that he wished to converse with the guy hanging his head out of the passenger side of the van moving the wrong way down the breakdown lane of a large highway. So I told the driver to prepare to stop, and then stop. The security guard angrily said something to me. I thought about it for a second, put the most innocent look on my face that I could manage, without cracking the slightest smile, and (remembering my promise with my buddies) responded

 

"hors d'oeuvres?"

 

If the look on that guy's face was any indication, I would say that the French are less tolerant of the concept of bilingual communication than other folks are.

 

 

Oops. wrong thread. My bad.

In much of europe, taxed diesel is referred to as Diesel Engine Road Vehicle or DERV. He probably thought you were speaking english and insulting either the pump attendenant or himself.

 

The french refer to it as gasoil.

Ours was moved indoors too, due to a storm front moving in. Congressman Bonner spoke. Security was light if existent at all. Great day except for the weather.

 

As for moving indoors due to a perceived threat, I hope the student's voices are heard. Caving in is a sign of weakness and fear.

 

 

Maybe someone saw a receipt for a pressure cooker in the back of a car in the parking lot?....

 

Bullshit, my grandmother was destroying vegetables for years with her pressure cooker.

 

Hey, I saw a woman who didn't speak any English in the Home Depot parking lot with what looked like two pressure cookers in the trunk of an Impala,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of corse she was selling tamales, but you can't be too careful nowadays... :rolleyes:

Tamale buy back program to get those tamales off the streets. I can get behind that...........willing to contribute to help. Mrs PB and I have a early December all day tamale making day. Lots of the neighborhood shows up as it a BYOP (bring your own pot) event. I got two burners outside, and 8 inside. Get em all rolling and go all day. We provide the masa and husks. Folks bring their own innards and cerveza and its a good day! Stock the freezer and it gets us through to summer. So the buy back program would fill the gap nicely.

Both. Love them! Very little Mexican we don't like.........except menudo.........I cannot do menudo. But then I couldn't do a ballut in the PI either........

 

Really most Mexican soups rock. Caldo de Camerones, albigondas, any of the pollo soups...........god I love that food!
