      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

"just remember that there IS a line, and we'll inform you if you are crossing it."

 

. . . just like they do at Cruisers Forum.

 

 

You guys really need to change the name of this place.

Something like "Sailing Moderation where the status quo is."?

Not at all sure how I fit in here.

I post examples of what I do because I think for a lot of SA'ers it's interesting.

I'm alway trying to promote what I do. It's just an integral part of my life.

 

Am I supposed to buy an add when I want to post one of my new projects?

I'm confused, again.

SN's ok. We have had a few good shit fights there lately. But you can't say "shit". You get auto-censored. You can slide "shitski" right by them though.

Sailnet is...weird. After the first three or four collapses and rebuild, I lost faith. Wasn't there a "Jody" trying to make it into a paying proposition a million years ago? Before there was an expectation that somebody somehow had to pay for the bandwidth. Tried to make it a subscription service. Nyuk nyuk.

It's an OK place to visit now and again, but a little vapid.

 

It's way better than it was in the past. The vapidity dried up with the exodus of a few chumps.

 

It's not got the edge of SA (which I don't mind when my kids are looking over my shoulder at the posts) - but it's fun. Just depends of what you're looking for. It's a HELL of a lot better than CF.

 

Oh, and +1 on SA needing to pay Bob royalties on his posts.

 

(I think he's getting like $1.13 for each post over at SN. Making a killing.)

As the guy that handles most of the bannings here (unless you piss Scot off and he does the deed on the spot without consulting any of us) I can tell you that pretty much isn't the case at all. Even most of those end up being let back in eventually.

 

Every couple of years (and I've been doing moderation on this board for over a decade) we get an outbreak of assholery that starts bogging down the boards. Large numbers of sockpuppets, people getting more brazen with threats of real world action (like lawsuits, violence, or in one recent case a threat to turn me in to tax authorities because I would not stop ignoring him), and general forum disruption with bombing threads with scatological porn and repetitive abusive posts to break up discussions. In most cases that means culling a lot of socks and handing out some suspensions (different than banning - they expire and you can come back) to a couple of bad apples and warning people to knock it off.

 

Occasionally you have a user that repeatedly steps over the line in spite of numerous attempts to warn them and rein them in they persist in their disruptive behaviors. Eventually banning them and blocking their IP's is the only way to deal with them, as they will keep coming back with new sock puppets and repeating their behavior.

 

Of these - in the last year+ I have done ONE - and that as done after a punitive suspension and several warnings to stop coming back to the board and posting with another ID during the suspension. One other Administrator did the one that was threatening me with the tax authorities last week (although I will confess I helped him with some of the cleanup afterwards since he's still learning the tools).

 

That is two (2) permanent bannings from your volunteer moderator squad over the last year or more.

 

Scot has tossed a couple of others that I know of, people that have personally vexed him. I don't mix up with those, it's his sandbox and its not my place to talk him down when it happens, though I have successfully brought numerous suspensions like this to him for reversal after the fact over the years.

 

To the best of my knowledge Clean has banned no one.

 

That's the truth of it, at least in terms of what I have done and what I know with regards to regular posters.

 

I can not begin to tell you how many spammers we've removed over the years. And we can tell the difference - when you are a new user and you start posting non sailing ads right off you get permanently banned and your IP burned. If you come and post a sailing ad right off that is obviously not a cut & paste link farm you tend to get a talking to after the ad is removed but you don't get the Spammer treatment right off.

 

 

So cue up SSI and No.6 with the personal attacks on me now.

 

no Clean, you know as well as i do that there have been wayyy more bannings in the past couple years than in the previous years combined. We've been here about the same length of time, i've got you by a couple months. you know it, i know it, its not the same. It really started getting tight assed as soon as you idiots stuck your nose into jabba's fat ass.



 

is any reference to Dawg getting posts deleted? seriously?

 

 

 

 

so much for this site being all about the readers, huh.... i knew there was a reason i kept that quote in my signature...

I'll bet your signature gets edited if you offend the anarchists in charge.

wouldnt surprise in the least at this point.

I liked SA better when the Admin team didn't feel it nessasary to justify everything they do. BJ, your last sentence negates your entire post by challenging 2 regular posters you have an issue with. I don't have a dog in this fight, other than seeing and not appreciating SA becoming white washed. Suspend if you feel a need, ban when appropriate, just do it and let it roll.

Actually, I have been visiting and posting from a cell phone and the signatures don't show in the SA mobile phone App.

So my rabble rousing about the Easter laser event in this thread has been way more funny than unintended

 

But

I believe it is our duty as racing sailors to constantly invite others to join in and to do whatever we can to make their experience addictive

 

As the event costs money from my own pocket I damn sure am not being commercial

And

I believe the musings I post in this forum increase the hit counts and therefore allow the site owners to charge more for advertising on the pages where my content is found

 

 

But most of all I want to play with each and every one of you as often as I can afford it.
