      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.

This place is beautiful, the people have been wonderful........good food.............not so much. Mexican? They don't even know what it is. I found a lonely bottle of tabasco at a co-op the other day and have been lugging it around to all the restaurants. Salsa? Never heard of the stuff.........at least here in the north UK anyway.

Daughter made me a rather large platter of fudge.

Wife ran out to the bagel store and grabbed me an onion bagel with cream cheese and salmon for breakfast.

Just had BLTs for lunch.

I suspect onion dip and chips are planned for the Yankee game.

Since we did our Father's Day Dinner on Friday, I will grill for the girls later on. Mmmm steak.

 

Enjoy your day mutherfukers!

Need to replace the facia on the front balcony today, then the railing. I hope the bloody (brilliant?) rig I invented keeps the railing posts where they are....or...i'm in deep shit.

 

Prolly get a call from the two too-far-away-to-help sons in the middle of the process. SOP, but they're old men now anyway...44 & 47.

 

Happy Fathers Day all you MoFos!

Yep, but it was worth it. Down 3-0 in the bottom of the ninth and they managed to win it with a walk off three run home run after a lead off solo home run. Would have a great day either way, but that was a really nice way to end it.

Slept in. Read the paper. Played mahjong with Mrs WW and two of our little WWs (didn't win, but hey who's counting?). Next, put together the two stand up paddle boards that I got from Mrs WW for birthday/father's day (4 days apart) - LIFE IS GOOD!

Len, I am glad it worked out for you and your family there in Queens. Haven't been to Citi Field yet myself, but drive by it when I head to JFK. Nice looking place.

 

Rickster, different story today huh? You know the "Yonkees" are the only undefeated team in the majors this season when they score 5 runs or more. That's 20-0. I like Soccia and company so long as we ain't facing them in the playoffs. But I think you are up against it today.

 

You gents enjoy the rest of your Father's Day. My little girl just got home from work, first real job, second day.... LOL. I'll grill her and the wife some chicken and steak in a little while and get some of them "Yeah Daddy!" hugs. You guys do the same.

The might do better to spread a few of those runs around to some other games so they wouldn't be in third place, they only need to win by one...

6-5 Yonkees now, b-of-the-9th. This could get good.

 

Oh yeah, and kudos to Mariano for his last Angel stadium appearance---you've had a helluva run, Sir....

And Mo gets 'er done. Needed all 5 of those runs and then some.

Doesn't get much better than Pujols Vs Rivera to end the game.

 

Now where is that fudge my daughter made? Time for dessert.

Glad you enjoyed your Father's Day as well. I treasure them more each year, because I know as they keep getting older, there are going to be fewer and fewer we all spend together.

Well, son and daughter-in-law called to say a grand baby TOG is on the way. Pretty cool fathers day. Peeker nearly blew out me eardrum when they called. All good. My daughter took us to the Club for a fatty bacon burger and a couple Mac & Jacks.
