      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.

Raptor great looker except that her bum gets destroyed with the black treatment. So what is the final wash up with this design Is it a four way mixed design or what. ? It seems Brendan keeps a very low profile generally but what is whos theirs his of this design. The applied rig looks great and a nice square top main /jib balance but does it cop a big hit in the numbers, still it looks more responsive and not heeling like many others, Its gotta be faster !!

The Stig's Audi Driving Cousin takes the title with a perfect score after a drop. Well done to Dave Ellis and crew from RYCV. 2nd on a countback to Andrew Waugh and crew on Zippier to Barely Legal - great effort by all & esp the interstate crews who got to the CYCA for the weekend.

Who are the 4 people you are talking about? Brendan, Al C, Mark and ? I think the wash up is, it certainly is fast, I watched the last couple of races at Geelong, wow. Was in a different league to Kiss.

Strange it hasn't been sold yet. Is it just too over the top for most?

:-) Actually, seeing this picture makes me a little sad, as I loved her so much when she was mine and I do miss sailing the red beast...anyhow the new owner is really looking after her well (other than changing her name which I understand as she who must be obeyed does control the budget for sailing).

 

Great Shot Beth Morley :_)

Raptor great looker .................................

. The applied rig looks great and a nice square top main /jib balance but does it cop a big hit in the numbers, still it looks more responsive and not heeling like many others, Its gotta be faster !!

.

apparently not, afa i've heard

 

she is 8.5 mtr long, only boat built out to the asba box length

It's said the rig is of a size off a shorter 8mtr boat, in which case it would not push the rating buttons 'above unity'

 

aside from that unconfirmed info the fact that it can win under SMS indicates no 'big hits' ?

 

____________________________________________________________________________

 

I think a similar but more to the point Question might be what 'rating hit', for want of a better description, is the extra 0.5 metre of Length costing

 

that is where a speed advantage lies IMO,

taking into consideration the legacy line honours speedsters (stealthy, bethwaites, zippier) are 0.5 mtr shorter at 8 mtrs

 

Mark ?

Perhaps a victim of its own domanance? must be pretty lonely that far out in front all the time.
