      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.

Don't forget to include OKC native Matt Kemp in those accolades:

 

You know he tweeted: "I'm giving $1000 for tonight's HR and every HR until the All-Star break for the victims of my hometown in OKC."

That might be what, $10,000 or so?

KD is a very cool guy and does a shit load of stuff for the local community. I'll bet he's happy he's not in the former shit hole he played in.

Durant got Nike to donate 1,000,000 worth of shoes and clothes plus all the profit from his shoe model. His donation has inspired the nba and others to make donations. Just from his donation and the others he has inspired its about 10 million now

Bear in mind, the damages to STRUCTURES alone is estimated in billions. The generosity mentioned in the post above expanded from Durant's 1/1000 of just the buildings to 1/100 of just the buildings.

My house and shop are valuable and all that but losing the contents would be far more destructive to my life.

Aside from losing things like the photo of my teenager Dad in his refurbished 1932 roadster which no amount of money could replace, money would only get me part way bsck to my old life. After spending a couple hundred grand my buildings would be as new again but I am not sure I could refill the place with a checkbook full of another million

And

I am damn certain no insurance company would toss me money for my regatta t shirt collection, nuts, bolts, screwdrivers, books, CDs, used sailboat parts, and all the endless odds and ends that make my life my life.

 

I look at those squashed neighborhoods and simply shudder

Actually both he and his mom love Okc , fuckhead! By the way, how is it going trying to steal Sacramrnto! To bad you got turned down. Might have had a chance if your ownership team didn't suck. Oh, and it would help if your city would support a team.

Gotta admit it was totally callous for David Stern to begin his "Not moving th Seattle" press conference " I will make this short because I have to get to a game in Oklahoma."

That's the most asinine post on SA since BG last logged on. The ownership of the Sonics is epic.

 

Unlike the BS move of Bennett, McClendon, et al, we were always very up front with our intentions to buy the Kings and relocate them - the whole point was to bring a team back to Seattle. We had a signed purchase & sale agreement, and a deal for a new arena without public money. Why would anyone want to buy that team and keep them in Sac-town when the attendance is at or near the bottom of the league, and it's a shit market to boot?

 

The only reason Sac still has the Kings in because the city bent to the will of the NBA, and the only reason OKC has a team is that Seattle didn't. That and Howard Schultz is a piece of shit.

You just made my point about your shitty city not supporting "their" team and why it was moved. It was always the intention to move it. Your owner was the one fucking with you. Oh by the way you suck.

Everyone knows why they left, the difference in character from our new ownership group to that of OKC is how they constantly lied about it.

Our fans have always supported the Sonics. In spite of Schultz, and our idiot Mayor, our city wasn't going to let Stern tell us to write a blank-check to the dirt-eating, cousin-fuckers from OK. I only now wish Portland had been smart enough to take Durant and left us you with Oden.

Are you that stupid and gullible to think your owners didn't know when he sold the team they were going to move. We just went along with his game to sell his story to you dumb fucks. Really, your that gullible! Then you whinney fucks try to do the same thing to Sac, get butt fucked, and get made at us all over again. What a bunch of douch bags!

I'll be damned. Not only am I impressed by a classy act by a quality individual, I'm even more shocked by how many people follow that travel, travel, dunk league. I didn't even know they were in season!

I dun see yer a graduyate of that Bull Gaytard scool of ritin werds and stuf.

 

If you can't spell, or use the spell-check function of your picture-box with keys, then I'm not going to bother with your dopey logic, other than to say Bennett/McClendon/Stern/Schultz are all complicit in the larceny, and that is a permanent stain on your team.

Hansen/Ballmer/Nordstom are doing it the right way, in spite of the NBA. If it was up to me, I'd tell Stern and his stable of bootlicking sycophants to fuck off until they are begging to be back in our market, and focus on bringing another Stanley Cup back to Seattle.

Impressive, you base your entire post on my misspelling of mad vs made. Then you insist your "right" and all our owner group, the entire NBA , and every game sellout crowd is wrong. Your fucked up.

Your pics of Seattle are beautiful. What did you do to make that happen besides google a nice pic.

If reading comprehension was part of your resume, you'd realize that wasn't my entire post.

Let me give you the bullet points:

* you can't spell

* you are likely an idiot

* poor spelling / grammar diminishes your argument

* I can't take you seriously

* Thunder ownership can lick my nut-sack

* Howard Schultz can jump in line to lick my nut-sack

* Thunder fans are straight homo

* Seattle ownership is the greatest thing since vagina was invented

* you wouldn't know a vagina if it jumped up and bitch-slapped your momma during Thanksgiving grace

* David Stern has vaginal qualities

* Stern and Bennett are familiar with the term "courtesy reach-around"

* the Seattle market is epic

* we've won a Stanley Cup

* we've won an NBA Championship

* Garth Brooks was the best thing you have going in that shit hole town you live in, and your ilk still found a way to fuck him over

 

Here are the rest of your spelling errors in your very short, eloquent post.

 

mad vs made

douche vs douch

whiny vs whinney (that one wasn't even close, even for an Oklahoman)

I guess it's easier to try to change the subject than to realize that you and your city suck. Back to the subject, you complain OKC "stole" your team when Seattle did not and would not support "their" team. Then Seattle tried to steal Sac's team and got turned down. Everything else you want to bring into this discussion is bullshit to try to disguise your shame. Just deal with it and move on!

Just re-read my posts and I would like to apologise to the city and people of Seattle. I think the city is beautiful and I'm sure the majority of people are wonderful. My post is aimed at the whiny fucks like silverbullet who cannot let go of the loss of their NBA team. Get over it and move on.

Again, my apoligies to the normal people of Seattle.

GO SPURS GO!!!

 

 

 

It seems there are times every year when the Spurs click and it all comes together. Unfortunately, that's usually a month or two before the playoffs start (at least for the last couple of years). This year they seem to be just getting stronger as they go. Tony Parker has just been amazing. I hope Ginobili gets it together for the finals.
