      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.

Apparently it had the biggest twitter response about a tv show ever. When it first aired ratings were crap, but 1/2 way through, so many people had tuned in that sifi is airing it again. Cult status. Heard today that they are now greenlighting sharknato 2 and having a contest to determine the name or plot or somesouch....... Crap movie but you gotta love it.

 

what's nxt?? honey badgernato..... snakenato? blackwiddonato?? :D

My kids love these shitty, campy movies. They are SO bad, they are good, or as one reviewer wrote: it's so wrong, it's right! We've seen Sharktopus, Dinoshark, MegaShark, etc... they all suck but are so funny to watch. We rip into the shittiness of the film, it's inconsistencies and laugh our way through them. It's actually quite entertaining as we see them as comedies. I think I'll need to employ an old collage trick: get high/drunk (your preference) watch these shitty movies with no sound and music on, make up your own dialogue=good fun!

 

It had a mere $2M budget! Take that John Carter, After Earth, Lone Ranger, name the recent high budget flop of choice.

Looking forward to that. My daughter is an intern doing shark research, currently fossils such as the "megladon". Discovery channel filmed some of their stuff a few weeks back so she might make the show.

 

I'm ok with the fossil stuff. Not sure I'm ready for the live shark research she plans next spring.

Where is she doing her research internship? University of Maryland College Park? I had a summer job with NMFS like that as a research assistant...one of the best jobs ever. She'll be fine!

Watched a film called "Dark Tide" recently. Set in South Africa, with Halle Berry and a couple of other faces I recognised. The plot wasn't superb but the tension-building parts had me hiding my eyes behind my hands, waiting for the bad sharks to eat the poor people. Like the sequence in Jaws where the head rolls out of the boat, you know it's coming but that doesn't make it any easier to watch.

 

Most "suspense" films don't wind me up but f**king sharks, now they give me the shits.

She is a second semester Senior at UMD CP in BIO and a Research Assistant/TA for one of the Dept Chairs who is researching biology of extinct animals. Supposedly, she'll be a "contributing author" on an upcoming publication. This summer she's at Calvert Marine Museum digging fossils out of the cliffs and sharks teeth out of a "Kitty Litter" clay deposit on the Northern Neck of VA and then doing the cleaning, preserving and classifying. The big find at the moment is a whale skull just at the high tide line on the Virginia Potomac shore. Their "by catch" of common mako teeth, etc ends up in the Children's Museum sand pit so visiting kids can "find" real fossil shark teeth. She'll graduate in December and has applied at the Bimini Biological Research Station for a 3-4 month stint prior to grad school next year.

You need to watch "Megashark vs. Giant Octopus" to bring the week home. It has to be the absolutely worst movie I've ever seen, which is why it's awesome!

After all the hype, my 18 YO son and I decided it needed to be on the DVR so count us in. His mother and older sister think we're crazy.

Good for her. Sounds like a great opportunity. May swing by the CMM when we get to Solomons on Saturday. Don't worry, I won't even look for her. It's just a tradition with our crew to get some culture between the feeder race and SPLC.

One step ahead. She will be in College Park this weekend. Girl grew up around sailors.
