      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.

How can they not have identified the cause of death in almost a week?

Jesus Clean.

In the article is states the death isn't being viewed as suspicious, whether or not the exact cause is mentioned any coherently thinking adult will know what occurred.

Grumpy hit the nail right on the head.

 

This is awful, should never happen to anyone, anywhere, and never so young.

I've got an advanced degree and I don't know what occurred, and I'm really not willing to guess. I'm seriously confused as to why a coroner or police department wouldn't release a cause of death a week after it happened, but then again maybe public records don't work the same way in UK as they do here. The news would already have the report here in the US - the police don't really have a choice.

Very tragic and sad. Condolences to all.

 

It's between the lines Clean. Most don't look for it, just offer heartfelt condolences and move on.

Even in the USA the cause of death is normally not reported unless a FOIA request is made of the coroner. And even then it is restricted to criminal activity or "public figures" where privacy is not covered under US privacy laws. The UK has similar laws, but they differ on some items...normally more privacy is granted in the UK vs USA.

 

I think what people are stating is that you are wanting someone to state the obvious. She probably took her own life. I hope I am wrong, though the result is the same regardless.

If you could not see that people were trying to be polite and treat this with respect, well then you are an ass.

Condolances to the family, no family should ever lose someone that young, regardless of the circumstances. It is a tradgedy, and instead of being a jerk and pushing, perhaps you should show some respect for the family and friends who have lost someone.

or just read the article in the paper "People can contact Samaritans by phone on 08457 90 90 90 or face-to-face at one of the UK's local branches."

​prayers for her friends and family. We don't need answers all the time, just some common sense .

I apologize if my impatience with this case has offended anyone. I have been paying attention to the Junior Worlds and to me at least, this is a matter of public concern.

 

I'm not sure where you get your information from about cause of death, but it's 100% wrong. Police reports are public documents routinely viewed by news organizations upon request, with redaction only permitted for the name of a minor, and you can get death certificates online in many states within a day of their being filed. And of course, the news reports on it routinely. Again, I apologize for my impatience. I guess I am hoping that it was some freak accident, poisoning, anaphylaxis, snake bite...anything rather than the absolutely heartrending tragedy of a suicide in one so young.

 

The reason the Smiths song is in there is that for me, it adds a deep note of somberness that provides a powerful contrast to the picture of a beautiful, young, vibrant girl. I used it to convey the pain that this incident has caused so many. This has gripped me quite a lot too, even though I didn't know her at all. I'm sorry you don't like it, but that's how my writing comes out sometimes.

 

Most don't look for it

 

I know. But I do.

Oh gosh, please stop Clean. Its implied in the article and stated in the thread. Props for what you did in the river but leave this alone. Some things are best left unsaid. Having a daughter the same age I had to go look. It breaks my heart. Friends just down the street just lost a son of similar age a few months ago the same way. I can only pray the family finds some peace. There are no words or at least I don't know them...

I know. But I do.

 

Me, too. I want to know: Why...? I want to know if it was self-inflicted or not -- drugs? Intentional or not -- suicide? A rare medical condition? I think most people want to know, whether they admit it or not. Some people are confident enough in their suppositions to carry on. I'm not.

Very sad news, my heart goes out to her family and friends.

 

I think knowing (without granular detail) what caused this tragic loss would ok if not helpful. Many of us are coaches and to loose such a talented teen, who was clearly performing well and had a very bright future, should drive us to ask some questions. Was it a head trauma during worlds that did not present symptoms? Are we doing enough to support young athletes who are feeling massive amounts of pressure to perform? Are we pushing too hard to win? Are we supporting the physical health of our athletes in every way possible? Are we educating enough on the dangers of drugs/alcohol? No, I/we don’t need the details, I don’t want the details, but I think there is something to be said for trying to prevent something tragic from happening again.

 

Let’s not make this into another bash Clean thread, nothing good will come from it and it is no way to honor Jess.

I love how the Sailing Anarchy community so consistently unites in their repudiation of the Editors...Nothing seems to bring you guys together like bashing Clean & company.

 

A very sad story, to be sure - tragic, in fact. But not undeserving of mention - I've known more than one sailor that opted out before his time - are we more tightly wound than most, or is it just a matter of a cross-section of the populace reflected in our legion ?

 

One thing for certain, the young lady will be deeply missed. I hope those who knew her can eventually find peace.

 

I hope there are planning reaches in the beyond, but personal experience thus far has indicated to me that we may only get them here, so you better go sailing EVERY chance you get, because a good surf-ride missed is one you aren't getting back. Forget decent boats, there might not even be wind after we leave this world.

God damn but this hits close to home.

 

A week ago Saturday my 22 year old daughter basically died. Convulsed and heart stopped for 8 minutes before defib. CPR started immediately waiting for EMT's then once in hospital put into an induced coma and lowered body temp for 30 hours, and a miracle has occurred in that she's now home and amazingly doing very well.

 

So for all those questions as to why did Jess died, consider that my daughter was living with an un-diagnosed genetic heart condition and if no one would have been present, she would have died for no apparent reason. She now has an implanted defibrillator and is promised a healthy life. Our family is so damn lucky this turned out this way and incredibly thankful that her boyfriend is a pro ski patrol with real CPR capabilities!

I'm not onboard w the Clean bashing. I want to know how this lovely young girl met this tragic end. I don't want to miss this opportunity to open a dialogue with the many younger Anarchists about mental illness, suicide and hard drugs (if that is what is supposed to be read between the lines). There is lots of joking about weed, booze, and other drugs on this site, but kids need to understand moderation, and need to understand there are people that can help, and that they are not alone. At that age I was blessed to have understanding counselours that helped me pull out of a nearly certain death spiral. Denial of the issue is simply a path to more similar tragedies.

One of the few areas that the British press maintains some decorum is sudden death. The phrase "not being treated as suspicious" is code. If there is a medical explanation for a death, or drugs for that matter, it would be mentioned in the next sentence. There will be an inquest and the details will be made available, though likely not reported widely.

Well, thanks for the explaination. Hopefully anyone reading of her death who is having self destructive thoughts will realize that they are not the only one who has felt this way and to reach out for help.

Exactly. Suspicious is code for murder. Tox reports take a while - a good few weeks in the case of Bob Geldof's daughter.

 

Official reasons won't be public until the coroner's hearing. One will be,opened but adjourned for tox etc reports. All AIUI.

I can't find any mention of it, are they trying to distance sailing from the sad event.

"This shit isn’t supposed to happen to 17 year olds."

 

I agree that this is sad, AND my heartfelt condoleances go out to the family.

 

But who are we to say that something wasn't supposed to happen?

It is what it is, and no saying that it shouldn't have happened will make it otherwise.
