      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.

This should have occurred to me before…. Teaky here BTW...

As a community, with sailing in common, we ought to help each other out in business (like those fucking golfers). It's a bit like group-buying... All you need to do (random viewer of this) is update your SA profile.


When I used to travel for work I always went to the local yacht club bar - it was easy to meet like minded people that would look after you. I've had great nights out with anarchists in the UK, the US, SE Asia and Australia (I even married one, ...but that's an another story). For some reason I trust people that sail.


We all know that sailing is an expensive and elitist sport, (Scooter loves that aspect). We're a very desirable demographic. Just ask Rolex...


Anyway, without considering big brands, and whilst focussing on SA contributors; what I am suggesting is an open skills audit of SA. We all update our profiles to say exactly what we do. When SA'ers need a service, advice, or whatever, they'll check with the sailing community first before hiring outside of our community... Scooter, you can sort that out right???


Anymo, I'm in. ..And I'm updating my profile to something more worthwhile and professional than simply King of Tuvalu (like that's possible.).

Ok..

 

The sports are two completely different animals; and don't get me wrong... if I took it up I could get obsessed like every other golfer.

 

With Golf there is you and the white ball. It's very simple, devoid of politics, very egalitarian and affordable for all and because of that you can have many a business discussion, many a contact and the sport goes on.

 

Sailing is much broader. But if you just take organised sailing/racing, it has a pecking order within teams, between teams then politics and gossip. Don't even start on the trade; it's often intertwined.

 

The moment you introduce accountability into that atmosphere, people stop saying what they think.

 

With golf you can say what you think. Nobody will stop you hitting that ball.

I just worked a European Tour golf event and let me tell you- those golfers, organisers, green keepers....the whole fucking lot are just as pissy as us sailors. I presumed they would all get along, eat together.. you know.

There is a big pecking order between them, especially as their incomes are very public.

Shucks, I'd be telling people I'm the King of Tuvalu if I'd thought of it first

:P

 

 

Anyway this is a good idea except I agree with Mad ... this place currently is like a ship with nobody in the engine room

 

Problem is, as a retired boiler man (and certified grumpy old fart) I am of little or no use to anybody. And I like it that way. I have met a number of SA'ers and have no objection to meeting more; but the main point is ... really wanna hear the "I married an SA'er" story.

how about we do it like this-

This is a complex topic. That's why I think it's fine the way it is with some people useing real names and other people using pseudonyms. This allows everybody to engage as they wish, which increases participation and is ultimately good for the site. There will always be trolls. If you force everybody to use real names they will just use fake 'real' names.

Getting back on topic -

I like the concept but will stick to being SMC. If I stumble across something on here that merits my professional knowledge and I can contribute, I tend to either comment or contact the person via PM.

 

Having seen how this place can utterly trash somebody, like the guy who bitched about the cut of his doyle sails, and as general rule of internet forums for beginners, it's probably best not to put out too much personal and professional information out there. Lest some wingnut decide to email your boss about some post you did on company time.

 

Nice to see you back Teaky. Have you shredded all the resumes you got from the ill-fated "SA Antigua Race Week Team" idea?

Artist : Zac Brown Band

Song: Toes

Lyrics:

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand

Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand

Life is good today

Life is good today

 

Well, the plane touched down just about 3 o'clock

And the city's still on my mind

Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head

I was still in the baggage line

Concrete and cars are their own prison bars

like this life I'm living in

But the plane brought me farther; I'm surrounded by water

And I'm not going back again

 

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand

Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand

Life is good today

Life is good today

 

Adios and vaya con dios

Yeah I'm leaving GA

And if it weren't for tequila and pretty senoritas

I'd have no reason to stay

Adios and vaya con dios

Yeah I'm leaving GA

Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one

And grab my guitar and play

 

Four days flew by like a drunk Friday night

as the summer drew to an end

They couldn't believe that I just couldn't leave

And I bid adieu to my friends

Because my bartender she's from the islands

Her body's been kissed by the sun :o :o :o

And beat to Fuck with an UGLYSTICK

Till I wouldn't Hit It with Your Dick

And coconut replaces the smell of the bar

and I don't know if it's her or the rum

 

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand

Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand

Life is good today

Life is good today

 

Adios and vaya con dios

A long way from the lake

Its where all the muchachas they call me "big poppa"

when I throw pesos their way

Adios and vaya con dios

A long way from GA

Someone do me a favor and pass me the Jaeger

And I'll grab my guitar and play

 

Adios and vaya con dios

Going home now to stay

The senoritas don't care-o when there's no dinero

I got no money to stay

Adios and vaya con dios

Going home now to stay

 

Just gonna prop up by the lake

With my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay

Not a worry in the world, a PBR on the way

Life is good today

Life is good today.

Zac Brown Band - Toes Lyrics
