      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.

James on Colbert Show

Not sure why he went on Colbert, but no harm done, and if it helps promote sailing - it's all good.

Not sure why he went on Colbert,

Ummm...seriously?

 

NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 - For the first time, "The Colbert Report" has overtaken "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" among Adults 18-49 for a full quarter to give COMEDY CENTRAL the #1 and #2 late night talk shows in the key advertiser demographic, joining "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" at the top of the ratings charts. The multiple Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series also continued their long-standing dominance among younger viewers finishing the quarter as the most-watched late night talks shows in all of television, both broadcast and cable, among Adults 18-34, Adults 18-24, Adults 25-34, Men 18-49, Men 18-34 and Men 18-24. TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com maintained their industry-leading positions as the top late night talk shows in digital during 1Q 2013 leading the field among Total Visits, Unique Visitors, Total Minutes/Time Spent and Videos Streamed. (source: Nielsen Media Research, most current data, original episodes only, 12/31/12-3/31/13; comScore MediaMetrix, 1/1/13-2/28/13)

I'd bet more people view this than all previous interviews combined. In the us at least.

Colbert is actually a bit of a sailor so I'm sure he jumped at the idea of getting Jimmy.

Colbert made only a quick, passing reference to his own sailing experience. One of the best parts about that pretty cool interview is how the script writers kept attention where it was best due.

 

JS looked pretty lit up, absolutely nailed that it was about fun. His enthusiasm was infectious.

 

Am trying to imagine that guy's schedule since waking up early in the morning to maybe the biggest race of his life, Race 19.. Was on a flight to NY very late that night, did several apperances, was aimed at Hawaii for some brutally physical slog after, then back to the US east coast after.. Amazing how he keeps the pace, and the great attitude. The guy is on top of the sailing world like few if any have ever experienced, he just grabs it by the horns and revels in it. IMO, DC and RC have got nothing over JS on the biggest counts - attitude most especially.

 

No way that BA could have pleased like JS did on the Colbert Report.

They should have gotten Colbert out on a AC72 while the AC was running, late August say. Great to see a public figure who gets it, even though in the interview he is playing dumb and mugging for the camera a bit.

 

Instead, they gave that fruit-loop Tom Cruise a ride. FFS!

Oh yeah there is an interesting piece on BA here

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-2448272/Sir-Ben-Ainslie-dating-presenter-Georgie-Thompson.html

 

I think is represents some kind of progress when the media covers the dating lives of sailors like they do rock stars or football players. ;)

 

Sounds like a party girl...

 

"In September 2011, Thompson was banned from driving for 19 months, fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £100 in costs after being caught more than twice the legal limit for drunk driving."

Colbert did a race from Charleston to Bermuda a year or two ago, IIRC; but don't know what boat he has, or if it was a charter. He did a funny (sorta) skit upon his return about the trials and deprivation of an ocean race...

 

EDIT.. I thought JS was going to be on 60 mintues Sunday, but wasn't there???

We had Colbert's video piece on the front page, it was pretty funny - search colbert and sailing anarchy and you'll find it. He was invited to charter one of the OnDeck 40 footers before they went tits up - Mer and I were actually brought in to help out but saw the OnDeck program and hightailed it out of there.

 

Colbert ended up on some shitbox with a couple of his friends and didn't even make the awards ceremony, It was the C2B race, which is dead but doesn't seem to want to stop breathing.

 

And he reads SA.

In the land of completely useless hypothetical media competitions, Stingray holds all the keys.

 

Jimmy is off to Maui for some boarding after our interview tomorrow, and he told me he would take me up on my invitation to come Moth Worlds watching from a media boat. Maybe our interview will have a part 2.

It would have been much more fun around here if you would have taken this sort of interest during the Cup.

A number of years ago he was looking at chartering my boat for Annapolis/Bermuda. I didn't really know who he was at the time but my college kids did and were very excited to meet him. He backed out because of a movie schedule or something.

Another derisive trashing of the AC on the front page again today; WTF? Scot and/or Clean really need to get off the negativity train. Yes, the AC was too expensive, didn't have enough teams, and other obvious flaws, but what a spectacle! I wasn't at the local pub watching the races but my mates that were said that all the Nascar, golf and tennis fans watching were totally gobsmacked!!

No, actually that was a carefully thought out piece from Pierre at Vsail. Hey Billy - why not dispute the specific points in the article rather than giving us useless anecdotes about how much you and your pals liked it?

For starters, I think it highly unlikely that Oronato expected Ellison to pay the freight for his campaign. Pierre is great, and I loved his coverage of AC 33, but like any other journalist, he needs be able to back up statements like that.

Hola Bee your friend to see the link posted (Well Worth any hoops to jump)

 

the YouTube-AC was such a Fack-Up

 

most everyone needed to use something to make them appear someplace else

 

Thus the US Ratings showed 325 people watched the 34th AC, while the Un-Blocked Countries Rocked It !!!

Here is a link to the SI interview - http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/sinow/#2013-10-03-full

 

Skip to around 25:30

 

I loved the polarizing personalities of Dean and Jimmy during the Cup and watching Jimmy make his rounds on the media circuit post winning is something else. He is entertaining, engaging and minus the accent and references to sailing you would think he was a typical american athlete. Here's hoping they can capitalize on this for the next cycle.

 

I do have to say that I was dissapiointed in Colbert with his interview. There were so many angles for him to play with the name of the race, won by one of the richest American's with a team of hired guns from other countries, many from the country they beat. He had some fun but not nearly as much as I would have come to expect form him. Truthfully I think he was a little bit in awe and excited to do the interview and fell out of character.

I think you are right in that assumption. I was at a taping of his show in New York a couple of years ago, and when he gets into character it is truly amazing. He must be totally exhausted, physically and mentally at the end of the show. I think he cracked himself up and had to start over at least a half dozen times throughout the taping.

He wasn't actually on the Stern show, he hung out with the producers one day. He addresses Howard in our interview. "I really screwed up - I was going to do a Bababooey on the microphone when we won but I forgot!"
