      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.

RUSH finally into the R&R Hall of Lame....

8 posts in this topic

Recently watched the 2013 Hall of Lame introduction-replay on HBO. Great intro speech by Alex.... nothing but "Blah, blah, blah"... I was surprised by Neil's gratitude at the "honor".... WTF.

 

Foo Fighters did a respectfully playful 2012, with Rush following No other acts on these intro-shows come close; Heart was pretty d-mn good. Nancy Wilson always gives me shivers.

 

Per Dave Grohl... "When did Rush become cool ?"

Does this mean that they'll be immortal for more than a limited time?

One time I heard a Rush tune on the radio and thought I ought to get some of that music for my car.

It turned out that was the only tune I liked and it was split in the middle by the changeover on the eight track

 

 

 

Ah yes. The Craig Powerplay am /fm sterio with eight track player.

It had a newfangled security feature. If you crawled under the steering wheel and laid yourself down in the mud and slush on the floor, you could pull the connecting plugs apart ( or break the fucking cheap plastic) unscrew the knurled knobs on the side of the metal mount and in about five minutes you could walk off with a filthy back on your nice winter coat carrying a ten pound shitty radio unit that was so powerless you couldn't hear it outside the car to amuse yourself while rigging your Fireball .... Nope... not even with all the windows rolled down ,

But it could suck the battery in a Celica dead in about twenty minutes....

So it was wise to park on a hill so you could coast off and start the car.

 

And that Celica?? Had that fucking 1974 safety feature where if someone was sitting in either front seat without a seatbelt on the car would not run.

 

Not only did that mean you had to fasten the seatbelt across a bag of groceries

But

 

If you started the car whose battery was dead by by pushing it and jumped in to drive it without yanking out enough seat belt as you dove past the fucker would immediately die.

 

And if your passenger had decided to lift his butt rather than fasten the seat belt and wasn't wearing it, and you stalled out on the railroad tracks, you had to remember he did that, even though both of you were stoned off your asses, and get him to lift his fucking ass again so you could get started and drive off the train tracks in time

Which wasn't really all that important as your passenger would jump the fuck out of the car and the empty seat would allow the ignition to work,

 

Those tracks out on West High street extension were so damned rough the car would bottom out at speed so the combination of driving very slowly and the bumps and not setting down your beer or pipe and shifting to first before doing do often led to a stall.

 

 

Thanks for the memories Rush

Good mother of God does Rush suck, along with everything they stand for.

 

The Dave Grohl 2112 intro was absolutely hilarious though. I don't think the boys picked up on the fact that they were being laughed.

 

What a shame. Neil Peart is such a talented drummer, it's ridiculous. But his songwriting skills are about as good as Hot Rod's boatbuilding skills.

Braaavo, Gouv. Between that story and the new guy reporting on Hot "and then the trailer hitch broke" Rod, this place is having a funny weekend.

 

Dave Grohl is a crass, commercial, hilarious and talented smart bastard. Courtney may have nailed it before going over to the dark side.

The only member of Rush who deserved admission was Neil Peart

 

Flamesuit on - I don't care.
