      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.

If your state exchange site is up and running, it would be interesting to see if your premiums will be less under Obamacare.

 

Sorry for your misfortune, and best of luck to you and your wife.

 

A quick Google turned up a few hits about people being dropped by Anthem, including a story from Conservative Foxette Michelle Malkin, who writes --

 

Like an estimated 22 million other Americans, I am a self-employed small-business owner who buys health insurance for my family directly on the individual market. We have a high-deductible PPO plan that allows us to choose from a wide range of doctors.

Or rather, we had such a plan.

Last week, our family received notice from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado that we can no longer keep the plan we like because of “changes from health care reform (also called the Affordable Care Act or ACA).” The letter informed us that “to meet the requirements of the new laws, your current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date.”

Remember? Our president looked America straight in the eye and promised: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) also lied when she pledged: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”

This isn’t just partisan business. It’s personal. Our cancellation letter states that Anthem is “not going to be selling new individual PPO plans.” When we asked whether we could keep our children’s doctors, an agent for Anthem told my husband and me that she didn’t know. The insurer has no details available yet on what exactly they’ll be offering. We either will be herded into the Obamacare federal health-insurance-exchange regime (launching October 1), a severely limited HMO plan, or we’ll be presented with costlier alternatives from another insurer. If they even exist.

My family is not alone. Across the country, insurers are sending out Obamacare-induced health-plan death notices to untold tens of thousands of other customers in the individual market. Twitter users are posting their Obamacare cancellation notices and accompanying rate increases: (more here - link)

 

A completely partisan bill that passed based on Obama and the Democratic leadership lying to the American public. You Obama supporters must be very, very proud.

 

Thanks in advance for not playing that old tune about Bush, lies and Iraq. That has fuck all to do with the topic at hand.

 

Edit - Here are some more examples --

 

Ten states where Obamacare wipes out existing health care plans (link)

quoting M. Malkin, seriously? she's more of a partisan hack than Happy Jack. From wikipedia. She states Anthem is going to stop offering PPOs? Um. . . . should I post a pic of my girl freind's ppo card with her info crossed out?

 

In August 2004, following claims by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that presidential candidate John Kerry had lied about his record during the Vietnam War, Malkin appeared on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews and stated that there were "legitimate questions" over whether one of Kerry's wounds was "self-inflicted." When host Chris Matthews asked her eleven times whether she meant Kerry had shot himself on purpose, she dodged the question

Quoting Milken is more credible than the pity party Obama threw at the WH today. He provided examples of how Obamacare would help those props he dragged out for his comments, but he offered no specifics about rates or coverage.

 

Edit - Perhaps your GF is in a different state. You are not alone in your disdain for Milken. From the comments under her article --

 

"As gross as I feel for sympathizing with Michelle Malkin...same thing happened to my insurance plan. Got the letter on Saturday, finding an equivalent plan now will cost roughly double what I was paying."

Your GF might want to keep an eye on her mailbox.

I am lovin' my massive cost increases in health insurance since ObamaCare was passed.

 

That sweet letter that came last week from Blue Cross warning of another unspecified increase and additional loss of features after November 1 sure has me angry at the Republicans.

Can't wait till my insurance hits 30k for a family of 3 (it's already gone from 13k to 20k, with a much higher deductible, since Obamacare was enacted).

Did Obama Care set out to cover medical bills in the public health system

Could you still have your own private health insurance, so that you can use private health care facilities.

Did Obama tell Anthem to drop the racist? I doubt that. He enacted a system that made Anthem drop plans it couldn't compete with the exchanges. I bet the racist will find he gets the same or better coverage on the exchanges for less money. Sucks to be a racist Obama hater yet be brought to you knees to grovel before the Kenyan to get what you need.

The only way they could manage to keep all 13 colonies united was by incorporating the concept of "free" states, loosely allied.

There were distinct cultural differences between the southern states and the northern ones, and the southerners were very, very leery of a powerful Federal government. Simple majority rule would have made the south powerless because their population of white men was tiny in comparison to the north.

 

So what they did was create a Senate. Each state, no matter what it's population, had equal representation of two Senators. This was further enhanced by Senate rules they made up for themselves that required at least 3/5th's to get most any law passed. It remains today, and the population differences between States has become vast. It's mathematically possible to get 41 Senators (the number needed to block most stuff) that represent just 10% of the population of the US. You can add 25 of the states from the bottom of the population list together to match California's population. That's 50 seats to 2 in the the Senate.

Cracker - so the existing plans might be out of compliance. How do you know the new plan you will get won't give you access to your current Drs - and might be affordable?

Cracker is a name I adopted during the Zimmerman trial. Better than a creepy ass cracker, I guess.

Interesting that I am now racist - as of last week.

 

Carrying around an inflammatory name sure riles up those who profess tolerance and free speech. Maybe there was alittle PM pow-wow and they decided that I was racist for asking questions that they did not want to know the answers to. That happens when one is so invested in someone's guilt and then when the evidence proves otherwise they can't bear to face the actual facts.

 

I'll probably change it again just to keep things interesting. Any suggestions?

Obama said I could keep my plan. He lied.

Blue Cross said they are not renewing my family's plan. That's reality.

 

After I spend 20-30 hours shopping around all the plans and researching all the doctors (when one's wife has specific treatments and testing required yearly one has specific needs) I will probably be MORE pissed than I am now. It is unlikely that we will just sign up for whatever Blue Cross offers without researching the options. If Blue Cross were to offer us exactly what we needed, it would be called a renewal. But it's not - it's called a cancellation.

10+ years with the same insurer, same one my family had growing up, now it's canceled, thanks Obama.

 

Fucking asshole, he lied.

By proudly titling yourself as a "cracker" certainly gives the impression that you are, indeed, racist.

 

It also sounds as though your current/former health insurance fails to meet the minimum requirement. In short, you were getting ripped the fuck off.

 

Prior to being outraged, check the alternatives.

By proudly titling yourself as a "cracker" certainly gives the impression that you are, indeed, racist.

 

It also sounds as though your current/former health insurance fails to meet the minimum requirement. In short, you were getting ripped the fuck off.

 

Prior to being outraged, check the alternatives.

We are on a website called Anarchy and people get all worked up about a name Trayvon described Zimmerman.

And btw, you have no issues at all here with rich white sailors using various black people as their avvys? I've always wondered about that crap myself. But then again, mine is a smoking hot Latina broad with a cigar in one hand and a gun in her other. So wtf do I know?...

Wow, in the interest of equality, the same charge of racism must be true of anyone who calls themselves nigger.

 

Oh, incidentally, if your current policy exceeds the minimums it's considered a cadillac plan and taxed at 40%. You aren't allowed to buy more than the government thinks you should have.

If your current *employer provided* plan exceeds $10,200 for individuals and $27,500 for a family of 4 then it gets taxed at 40% starting in 2018.

 

It's income.

Well.... when a long time poster creates a new inflammatory sock such as White Cracker and then gets all uppity when he doesn't have any credibility I am not sure that is entirely a function of the vicious malevolence of the hardcore left.

Cracker is a sock?

What was his original name?

Cracker....is that true?

Cracker is a name I adopted during the Zimmerman trial. Better than a creepy ass cracker, I guess.

Interesting that I am now racist - as of last week.

Obama didn't say that your current plan had to keep you, if indeed this is what is happening. Your complaint is with the insurance companies. Anytime y'all want Single Payer is fine with us.

Please... at some point you have to deal with the reality…A lot of people are losing the plans they like because of Obamacare. Many businesses are opting for part time help. Businesses are dropping coverage for part time employees. Businesses are dropping coverage for spouses and families. Costs are rising not falling as promised.

That's an interesting angle - instead of my policy being cancelled, it's just that my current plan "isn't keeping me."

 

That would be a cancellation.

And Obama didn't mince words - he told me I could keep my policy.

But his law made it illegal for my insurer to renew my policy. Why else would Blue Cross drop a profitable business product?

I don't care what Obama said - we all know he lied.

 

My problem, shared by millions, is that he wrote a law that made it illegal for me to keep my policy. Bullshit your way around it any which way you want (and it is funny watching the ObamaCare supporters make up new ways to describe this fucking piece of shit) but the bottom line is that I have no insurance after January 1 and must purchase a new policy, with new restrictions, new doctors, and most likely reduced coverage.

 

Obama is a fucking liar. A divisive, race card playing, class warfare promoting redistributionist. First class asshole.

Really, your attempts to defend this piece of shit are hilarious. You want us to believe that the reason Blue Cross had to discontinue my plan was because they can't compete?

Anthem discontinues some health insurance plans for 2014 (link)

BOONVILLE, Mo. -Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is discontinuing some health insurance plans because of new health care reform requirements starting next year.

In letters sent to certain plan holders, the company is recommending new policies to replace the ones that are discontinued.

Boonville business owner Vaughn Sell got his letter Saturday morning. It begins:

"Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is discontinuing your individual health benefit plan because it does not meet all the requirements of the new health care reform laws (also called the Affordable Care Act)."

"Presently, I'm paying $215.23 per month for my health insurance premiums," Sell told ABC 17 News. "Because of the Affordable Care Act ... my new policy is going to be $523.33."

Facing a monthly premium nearly double what he currently pays, Sell has started looking for other options. Starting next year, he would pay nearly $6,500 for health insurance.....

.... Anthem acknowledged the changes in a statement to ABC 17 News Tuesday afternoon. Deb Wiethop, public relations director, wrote:

"The new requirements for the Affordable Care Act provide for new compliant policies with comprehensive benefits. Regrettably some of our individual plans do not comply with the ACA and as such we will need to discontinue these plans."

Olsonist and Spatial Ed - Apologize to the man? It would be the proper thing to do for calling him a liar.

Obama definitely mislead people as to the impact on some existing plans. I say that as someone who was/is in favor of ACA. Politicians always lie about the laws they are pushing. Whether it is health care, budgets, debt limits, military interventions, global warming, gay marriage, abortion, or gun control. They always lie and mislead. Always.

To me, the ACA was always a game of the 'ends justify the means'. I always thought that Dick Durbin and Paul Ryan articulated the two positions most accurately when they said "We're not going to let people die in the streets" and "We can't afford it". That pretty much bounds the argument. Finding some middle ground has been what it's all been about since then.

 

Insurance itself is always a zero sum game. Most people HAVE to loose money over time so that you can cover the few people that experience incredibly expensive twists of fate.

The one where the President promises everyone can keep their current plans and then they can't? Or the one where he says the average family will save $2,500 and it actually costs more? Which twisted story are you talking about? There are so many with this President, it could be series that runs an hour every week.

Did Obama tell Anthem to drop the racist? I doubt that. He enacted a system that made Anthem drop plans it couldn't compete with the exchanges. I bet the racist will find he gets the same or better coverage on the exchanges for less money. Sucks to be a racist Obama hater yet be brought to you knees to grovel before the Kenyan to get what you need.

 

Your attitude, in general, is representative of what's wrong with political discourse in this country. You care nothing for seeing that the right things happen, your primary objective is to "score points", and to feel superior. Your immature vitriol aside, I really feel sorry for you, if you feel like you need to behave this way to feel good about yourself.
