      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.

And 8 out of the top 10. A whole lot easier to get to SD if you live in USA, than anywhere else.

Yup, so we get the geographical advantage this year. Still, no Kiwi's.

 

USA has now won the Star, Etchells, J24 and Lightning Worlds this year.

 

And people still think we such. Yeah Right.

Well, in all fairness, the class is nonOlympic so anitpodeans can no longer get paid to show up unless it is as crew. Stars are hardly sailed at all there, there are a lot more ozzies at the 14 worlds.

Seriously it's Peter Houston, he only ever has one point, being racist about New Zealanders, but if you can read more into anything he posts your welcome to it.

Even if he starts a thread seemingly about something else, that's where it always ends up every time, usually though he just starts there and gets worse...

After the star was dropped from the Olympics the Aussie boats were sold off for a song. You could buy a top flight boat for $5000. They're so complicated that the guys who bought them spend their weekends trying to figure how all the rig controls work.

I thinks its fucking brilliant, he obviously hates us, and we dont even have to put in any effort to get under his skin. He winds himself up without any input at all.

I must say, if there is one Oracle supporter who is sure to be a bad loser and even worse winner it is this guy.

I'm not entirely convinced this has anything to do with the AC, unless the good sailors who are indeed US nationals make it thru the ranks for next LVC...on LE's next challenger

You didnt give it enough rum then, we float fairly well when full of rum, only normally in a face down position. The best thing about it, kiwi sailors are blind to the threat hidden behind the offer of rum, sweet rum, speaking of which, my glass appears empty...

What point! Star, etchells... worlds are world events with sailors from around the world.

 

y88,s and pied pipers are 2nd rate NZ only classes sailed by Joe average club sailors that would look rather piss poor at a world event unless they could modify the boat for an advantage.

 

Down at Tiburon and richmond YC,s there are better world class etchells sailors sailing club races to a world class level every weekend.

 

NZ is full of many sailors sailing mavericks and moaning about handicap systems.

 

That's why they don,t front in classes anymore.

My comment wasn't particularly aimed at you, sorry if that was unclear. As for calling a spade a spade,you are wasting key-strokes as Huston doesn't come here for discussion.

No! You and many small minded kiwis have a big problem. Your talent base has shrunk. You guys have not got the skill and dollars to go to the big " world class" events and your'e whole sailing system Is geared around a few rich Olympic sailor has beens and the AC which has drawn your'e genuine talent offshore.

 

beside peter Burling and jo aleh you have nothing and nobody to front the elite world fleets.

 

Namely

 

Finn

 

Laser

 

Etchells

 

star

 

This is where all the great sailors are derived!

 

Truth hurts aye kiwi,s

 

Good luck for tomorrow.

Hardly a fleet nor quality of regatta that has quality sailors at a world level moron!

 

The elite of sailing is not AC in any form. World champs, in the big five classes, is where its at.

So Stars are no longer an olympic class right ? So its like claiming a world FD championship held at home when hardly any competition turn up ?

 

Amazing work, wheres the live coverage of this massive achievement ? Truely laughable

Moot point WT. Yes he is a good sailor but he is sailing Y88's in NZ!! Which proves my point.

 

You are comparing a local club championship , disguised as a nationals, with one good sailor and a heep of average guys versus a world champs with top class sailors.

 

And as for the pied pipers!!! There are better world class sailors sailing j24's on a Sunday here.

This shit fight is really fucking stupid!

If there is anything I can say about the Star class, it is that the Star class is a cohesive community of sailors that pay very little attention to national boundaries.

It is insulting that such an idiotic argument is associated with the Star class.

Why don't you guys take this to one of the other brilliant AC threads and leave the Stars alone.
