      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.

20 posts in this topic

I will be in the DC area (Arlington, VA) next week (June 11-15). Is there any kind of beer can series in the area on, say, Wed, Thurs, or Fri night? Would like to go for a sail if possible. Lots of experience crewing boats from 20 '- 45'.

To Leon T and TheOffice, thanks for your help. I was able to step off the plane at Reagan Airport and basically step right onto the Ultimate 24, Rogue, at Washington Sailing Marina. Had a great time with the skipper and crew sailing on the Potomac and drinking Yuengling.

Is this easy to get to from downtown? I'll be in town for work this Tuesday and was thinking of showing up on the docks with a 12 pack hoping for a ride.

you'll need a car or a cab. it's not really accessible by public transportation. just come over the 14th st bridge and head south on the GW Parkway ... well ya could take metro to Reagan and walk(south) down the bike path to the marina.

Good day fellow drinkers with a sailing problem,

 

I just moved her from Chicago and am looking for a ride. I have been sailing on lake Michigan for the past 7 years with experience on a J120, C&C115, FT10, and Trip 37 (having multiple seasons on all of the above). Any help would be greatly appreciated as i am starting to go into sailing withdrawal.

I am coming to DC for a couple of weeks from july 14th on and was wondering if there was any possibility of a ride on Tuesday nights at the Washington Sailing Marina? I sent BnG a message about Wed nights but would like to get out on Tuesday as well. I own my own boat (j35) in the PNW and can do just about any race job, just not a rock start on all/or any of them. Please let me know if you have room for the 15th and/or the 22nd. And I will bring beer.

I never even knew D.C. was on the water :blink:

most major cities everywhere are on some sort of water.

Yep.

 

In fact, something about the water (rapids, fall line, delta, etc....) tends to explain why the city is there in the first place.

Slow moving river. Saw it today flying in.

it's pretty slow where you saw it flying into Reagan, but 5 or 6 people punch their ticket every year about 5 miles upstream from there.

there's some pretty decent rapids for yaks and canoes north of Georgetown and all the way up to the foothills.

Upstream, just before DC...
