      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.

Come on that's not fair. Now I have to question my, and Grants, place in the Universe all over again.

 

Such eggistensh dylemm things are too hard to contemplate, after playing AC drinking games.

As long as they try their hardest (IE they don't fuck it up), we'll just forget we were ever excited about it and it'll be on the 12th page of the paper. We'll drink some beers and go back to the rugby.

 

We've had enough painful losses in the AC and the Rugby world cup let alone our shocking cricket team, to think we'll win everything. We just chalk it up to the fact we're a tiny country of 4 mill and say "we did pretty well considering"

Is this take your sheep to work day in New Zealand?

 

Yes, with red socks on. It looks smart, and reminds the sheep how lucky it is, to get shagged, or eaten. Plus, the boss will just send you home, so you can watch TV.

HA HA! - At least you guys have something to be patriotic about - OR Team USA have one USA national on the boat, kina hard to be patriotic about that

 

Their eventis run by an Aussie, teh team CEO is a Kiwi and the sailing team is reduced to one yank. Can't wait for Dalts to introduce the nationality rules but I reckon there will be an awful lot of Kiwis establishing residence in foreign fields when he does.

 

Potentially only (hang on - have to do the world clock maths here) 12-14 hours before the party begins (unless the wind is too strong) I think Shanghai is 15 hours ahead of SF?

 

 

Go go go Aeteroa (hope I spelled her name right, apologies if I didn't.)

 

See ya on the water

It will be the same as the reception they got from those on the dock after losing the race to OR on the 8th. Lots of support and a chorus of "we'll get em next time".

I reckon they would get a pretty good reception - the team has put in a creditable effort - far more so in the public's eyes than the 2003 event. GD is not universally loved back here, but certainly deeply respected for what he has achieved

^ Thought this was a bit cheesy first time round. Then I spotted the guy getting "lucky" in the bushes with his red socks on at 24s. LOL. Lots going on, far too busy when seeing it on TV, is pretty clever. Orsum.

I have a feeling the universe, the galaxies, all energy and matter, and of course planet Earth and humankind, will be returning to their natural states and order tomorrow morning. Sleep well New Zealand, catch you on the flipside.

So, how many AC fans would be happy if the event lead the evening news broadcast every night of the match, if the AC was the number one "water cooler" subject in the country, if 1/4 of the population tuned in to the racing, if it was pretty common for office fridges to be stocked with bubbles on the day of potential final races and the expectation that there may be a drop in national productivity on that final day?

 

As much as there may be some wanky "fanboys" about, and as many of us "instant AC experts" there are, you cannot deny the passion, and if we win it again, there will be no doubt of the passion that this small country will put into the defence. I dont see why that pisses off some of you haters (one in particular), isn't this what you want for your event?

Bring it on, one to go, and with a little luck we will see you all here in NZ in a few years time, where I hope we can live up to our own expectations as hosts.

Glad the universe didn't realign itself this morning as 9am is a rather critical time of the day for me and the second race is usually missed. This way I get to watch the win and bask a little bit before heading out to the crease.

Can't help but think that RD is giving BA a lesson in tactical positioning after watching a replay of race 10 and 11 - RD thinks 5 to 8mins ahead of where tnz should be, where as BA is reacting to TNZ moves and only thinking about the now. Nice work Razor......this AC finals series has played out like an American Soap opera - what's next?

Pity it is coming to an end, but it is hard going to sleep at 1.00 am (in Europe) after some of those races. Proud to be a kiwi in the land of the frog.

Wish I was still in Auckland to turn up.

 

There is however one problem, Auckland city has a lot of asians and they are often confused about such celebrations.

This happened one time with an All Blacks celebration, just a lot of asians looking very confused having no idea what it is about.

 

Hopefully good event planning can minimize this with times etc...
