      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.

What a bunch of clowns. First, drag the damn thing upside down. Then flip it with considerable effort and more damage. But the part I loved the best is literally tossing the mines on to each other with the whole pile of ammo sitting there. Not exactly what I would call an archeology team...

 

Looks like a WWII T-34.

nor an UDT

 

In DAGO there are areas with & around houses where a rain can uncover un-exploded ordnance (I know what's rain)

 

kids find the stuff and throw it around or bring it home - some BLOW the FUCK-UP

 

Sweeps are done again

 

can't believe the Vid's of treasure hunters in "X" War Zone's digging up metal objects just under the surface :o

 

BUT The Most Stupid thing I ever saw is the tossing atop another of the FACKING Landmines :o

 

Darwin called in sick that day ;)

No - a Valentine apparently (Brit made)

 

T-34 has a more sloped turret that's mounted further forward.

I think the round items are machine gun magazines but still wouldn't recommend chucking them on a stack.

+1, Mags.

 

But they did show some grenades in sawdust or straw it looked like. Now wouldn't want to poke them too hard.

that's a T-34.

 

edited and the magazines are PPS43's 9mm 50 or 75 round mags.

Sorry, but those are 62 series mines with the arming keys still attached. The igniters are dead for sure after being underwater for 70 years, but the TNT might conceivably still be explosive. However, it's not like they would be any more dangerous to handle than when they were brand new.

Huh?? No mark those are ppsh 43 drums. The cross piece you see in the middle is the wind up key for the spring. Why would a tank be carrying mine? Those drums were for the mounted troops which were part of the assault doctrine.

Why would a tank be carrying mine?

 

Might be because the Soviets in WW2 weren't all that mechanized, they tended to have to walk everywhere, and the supply trucks were few, precious, and kept as far back as practicable. That's not a battle tank, it's a light infantry tank, either they carried them or the foot soldiers have to.

My question is...how the hell do they find these tanks? I mean, who is digging around in the mud on the bottom of these ponds and says "Hey, I just found a tank!"

yea, these kids don't have the money thrown at them that US kids do. They actually have to go outside and interact to play with their friends. Strange huh?

Kinda like when we were growing up. Although all I got from my time mucking around in a pond was leeches. If I had known there were tanks in there, I would have dug around a bit more.

Oh c'mon, you didn't imagine crap like that? We had lakes with Islands and a copper/iron mine on the island. If our parents ever knew what we were really doing they would have never let us out. We used to go out on long hikes to places shut down many, many years ago. Ninham Mountain had abandoned stone houses/huts that we referred to as the ghost towns. Picture a pack of kids roaming the countryside where I grew up with those kinds of places.

Besides, we have not had a major land war since The Revolution so not to many tanks laying around. When you live in a country that has had the shit bombed out of it you are more likely to find this stuff.
