      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.

Not that anyone gives a shit but...........
I would like to apologize to the SA Forum users for having to read my vitriolic ranting toward Scot. I have nothing against Community.
I have become upset and angry. I may not have noticed it in the past, but I imagine it has been bubbling up for sometime.
I try to be normal but things are not normal, as much as I'd like to be. I'd like to say over the last 15 years, sailing has been very good to me but it has not.
Sailing is just too damn expensive and there are too many, way too many obstacles.
I am going to keep my computer off as much as possible and try find other avenues to help get my head straight.
This may take some time.

Sounds like Dave is getting his head straight. Since Clean isn't able to crawl inside his head and rearrange the deck chairs, how do you expect them to "make it right for Dave?"

I don't know anything about any of the players behind SA. And I don't know anything about what might (or might not) have gone on between them.

 

But anytime someone who makes contributions to the sailing community and leaves that community, we are all a little poorer for it.

Dawg, nuttin but respect from here.

 

If you need time & distance, take it. Many of us will be glad to welcome you back when you're ready.

 

Remember, the purpose of holding a grudge is so you don't get burned twice in the same spot. So it's a useful survival skill, but don't let it kill the joy in life.

this site has hit a few speed bumps lately, and losing your technical skills is certainly just one...

 

and, if you got screwed, you have a right to be pissed...and to warn others to be wary of whatever happened...

 

just don't let the anger own you...

Dawg,

 

your post been eating away at me...

 

life can be rough...but when you put in the time as you did to make something successful, you have a right to be angry when it blows up...

 

i can only imagine what happened, but after the crap i've see pulled around here, almost nothing would surprise me...

 

fill us in if it makes you feel better....sometimes the ugly stories are the most valuable.

It's only effective if you tell them why you canceled and repeated the website's name a few times saying how you and the group you lead (all 6k-10k or so) won't take it anymore.

I picture Dave turning his computer off one last time, giving the screen a farewell pat, stretching, and rolling to the door of his slightly darkened room. He opens the door and, darn it, the sun is shining outside in the real world.

 

After a few days of no computer, no SA , no sailing politics and maybe some CA sunshine, he runs into Scot and says "Maybe I'll take that drink now!"

 

 

 

 

 

 

A day later Scot starts a thread which begins:

 

"I would like to apologize to the SA users for having to read my vitriolic FP ranting. I have nothing against Community or Fresno YC really.

I have become upset and angry. I may not have noticed it in the past, but I imagine it has been bubbling up for sometime.

I try to be normal but things are not normal, as much as I'd like to be. I'd like to say over the last 5 years, Sailing Anarchy has been very good to me but since ********** appeared on the scene it has not.

There is a demand and I think that with the respect and skill's that you already have you could have a site going in no time.

 

Be quick, another site started a couple of days ago and another one has been going for a while, That's just what I know about, Lot's of folk have left that I haven't seen the same handles pop up anywhere else so I suspect there are more. But then I have not been actively searching.

 

Still haven't worked out why we are seeing so many new posters, Lot's of them after a dozen or so posts seem to know a lot of the history of the place, Why the inrush of sock's?
