      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.

I really like this, and the Shire one too.

 

The Lebanese-Australian kids there seem to have made something brand new, it's impressive. They're a lot like the Latin-American kids here ... they get blamed for a lot of stuff, they start trouble sometimes when they're in groups, but they're making their own way, mixing the language and culture of their grandparents with the remnants of the British empire, and like the Latinos here, their food is delicious.

 

This is the roughly the equivalent of that vid, but over here, the Miami thing ...

The Comedy in this video is very average. Fat Pizza the TV show did it extremely well.

a few years ago about 30% of the seasonal employees at Vail were from Oz or NZ

 

the resort had to close early even though there was lots of late season snow because their visas expired on the original closing date

It's not so much the funny that makes me keep watching it, it's just the reminder of the excitement of Sydney.

 

We have all those Shire/Jersey Shore kids already here, the ones down there are practically the same, not so interesting. But these Lebanese kids making fun of the Shire kids, and doing it in their Lebanese Australian way, we have nothing like that here. All that culture that Sydneysiders may not find so interesting because they're just used to it.

 

Do party kids actually do lines of ketamine down there?

I remember a Swiss Military veteran on a research vacation for his restaurant in Bern who opened Australian girls with a bottle wine and a steak dinner. Close enough?

Speaking of Japan ... I'll never forget something that happened to me once in North Sydney, I still don't understand it though.

 

I'm waiting on line for the ATM to get a few paltry dollars from my account that was loaded up with maybe a thousand bucks, tops. In front of me is a Japanese girl, fairly plain looking, not dressed spectacularly, just an average looking Japanese girl at an average ATM in North Sydney. She finishes her transaction and then starts futzing around with the machine, touching the keys over and over, turns back at me and looks confused, finally seems to ask me not to use the machine until she can go inside, but her English wasn't there. I didn't want to wait, I figured if the machine didn't work for her maybe it would work for me.

 

She goes inside, I take my turn; boop, boop, beep, beep, get a few bucks out, enough to last a few days, the receipt comes out, but instead of one receipt, it was two receipts, the girl's receipt from in front of me was attached to mine. I didn't think much of it, stuffed it in my pocket, no big deal, back then the front of most ATM machines in Sydney were littered with receipts, I guess identity theft wasn't a problem back then, nobody cared. As I get back to the office building, I go toward the elevator, pull out the receipt to check my balance, and catch a glimpse of the other receipt.

 

Holy shit ...

 

That chick had like $14 million something in her checking account. I had to look at it a few times just to make sure I wasn't reading the zeros wrong. I show it to one of the guys on the floor, ask if I should return it to the bank, he makes a point ... "would you return it if the balance was $45? You would just toss it." And then he says "and that's just her CHECKING account."

 

I eventually tossed it, but not before really thinking that were some things in the world that I knew nothing about before then ... like Japanese billionaires who send their otherwise normal daughters off to Australia with a few million bucks in a bank account, you know, just in case they want to buy something.

They're doing it in Thailand too? Do tell.

 

Why do Japanese people keep Aussie bank accounts with millions of dollars in them? It seems to be a cultural mystery then.

Maybe the same reason the American people keep millions of dollars in Cayman Island bank accounts?

Pfft indeed. My eldest carries debit cards for my accounts. If she left a receipt behind at an ATM Mikey would assume she's a millionaire!
