      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Don't use "gay" in the perjorative, it makes your website

Recommended Posts

I'm a straight east coast sailor, and hate the uptight funny pants/blue blazer crew as much as the next beer can racer. I fully appreciate that this is supposed to be anarchy, but using "gay" in the perjorative on the front page is just plain ignorant. Clean it up, guys.

Come on SA, using "gay" in the pejorative is so queer.

 

No, wait, I think it's retarded, yeah, that's it, it's retarded.

Way to up the ante. Maybe some racial slurs will really make this awesome.

 

If I were an advertiser I'd yank my ads right now.

I agree with sjb. Seems a lot of people think this stuff is funny. It's not funny.

ditto..

 

I read it and just thought the author must be a moron....

 

kinda fits with some other front page shit I've read recently...

 

and any advertisers who think it is funny won't be in business very long.

It was old yrs ago when I was one of a very few speaking out against it. Today it's just ignorance.

The site is Anarchy: its like yelling at Howard Stern to knock off the vernacular. This is how people talk in the real world: outside of the PC world, you can call someone gay as a pejorative and not be 1% anti-gay any more than you are anti-anyone else. Caricatures and stereotypes are too scary for people who don't trust other people to grasp the nuance of using language in different ways for different situations. These people treat words (symbols) as real things, because they are scared of the power of words inter alia.

SA's advertisers know what they are getting - and damn straight SA should print what it wants to print. The ultimate proof of the harmlessness of this kind of language is the license we grant each group to own their terms; A jew telling another jew to quit jewing him is generally acceptable to most people. A black person calling another black person a nigger is incredibly common in pop culture and perfectly acceptable. Nobody gay bashes like the queers, as everyone knows, and everyone is fine with it.

 

Now I personally don't like to step across those lines - it's simply not respectful to do so, and it makes people uncomfortable, which is bad manners, and bad manners mean you have no class, regardless of your station in life. But fuck-all if you are reading this website, you expect and demand disrespect, THAT'S WHAT ITS HERE FOR. When you get too mainstream, you get this kind of mewling from PC John Q. Public. Bad enough gallows humor is now forbidden ( I thought Washed Up was just fine and If I were the dead guy next time id be pleased with that kind of line)...life is harsh enough already- a few laughs ain't gonna hurt anyone.

You either believe in your gut all people are born equal or you don't, and all the language in the world wont change that in a person.

What a load of horse shit. It isn't about "political correctness". You're using PC in the pejorative now. I never use race, religion, sexual orientation or disability in a pejorative sense, and neither should any of us. Not because i want to be politically correct, but because it's wrong. You say it's ok here because, hey, it's anarchy. There is no proper place for it. "a few laughs ain't gonna hurt anyone"; do you really laugh at this crap?

Sorry kid, but in the real world you don't get away with racial, sexual, or religious pejoratives. People are offended, and stupid people lose their jobs as a result. I rather doubt that the SA advertisers are big fans of this homophobic bullshit.

Anarchists are supposed to be people who rebel against any authority, established order, or ruling power, in this case where in the US it seems there are an indecent amount of NYYC clones and sailing is at the elitist end of society, SA seems an appropriate response. However using "gay" or "homo" or whatever demonstrates the pitiful intellectual level of the authors. which is of immature pimply teenagers who havent managed to meet anyone gay yet, when a gay black sailor is probably the ultimate "anarchist" as they would have to rebel against the social straightjacket that even the rebels on this board put them in. Oh and Its simply bad manners to call people names.

 

Cheers GB

The hyperbole is strong on this one

Because this is a fight of good versus evil.

We have dedicated the last 13 years of our lives sharing this sport with you on Sailing Anarchy. What’s *********** done for you besides sitting back on his superyacht, pulling on cigars and scotch with his pals Ernie and Brad, laughing about how easy it is to crush the little guy with cash and power. If ************ wins, SA disappears – quite publicly. If ************ wins, sailing takes a step backwards. Money and fear will have triumphed over honesty and fun.

It will be up to you who wins this suit. ************ has proven he is fighting with nothing but his wallet. We have the truth on our side and an army of supporters, but without your money, we lose. It’s your decision: Do we live or do we die?

Im a gay east coast Aussie sailor and can definately tell you that there are quite a number of very good gay sailors out there, most in the halfway grey zone between being in and out to their sailing mates, a few who are totally out and a few, mostly older guys, who are in the closet totally.

 

It takes a lot to annoy me, and its not until recently that I would have been shitted off about the use of 'gay' in this manner, hell i even called gays gay.

 

Sailing people are by and large, and I mean 99% plus, supportive and dont give 2 shits about someones sexuality, its beneath most to care. Sure theres always a few tossers out there but u get the idea. I came out nearly 15 years ago, at the time running the bow on a local maxi and no one gave a shit at all I wantedsome sort of reaction I think and got 'your gay, ok...and?'

 

Just my 2 penny's worth, now all go fuck yourselves:)
