      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.

Snaggy, can you answer me a question? Cats get one day, October 29th. Dogs get one day, August 26th. Why is it that the two most popular and longest domesticated animals in the history of Earth each get just one day and sharks, sharks get a whole week?

I don't understand that. Please let me know your take on why that is.

submarine and all those discovery has admitted were fabrications.

 

The footage with REMUS at Guadalupe was amazing.

Work at the Bimini Shark lab is legit. Some of the voice over was a bit much. My daughter is at the shark lab right now and their research is very good.

 

Last year, she was part of he Megladon footage, help set up some of the shots (look that's my hand! Type thing). Was happy the pics of her states on the cutting room floor when the footage was used to supplement the fabricated story of meglDon still being around. Those scientists have said "never agAin" to working with DC.

 

Her fun at shark week is to try to pull up qualifications, papers written, background and the rest of the "experts" featured.

 

Doc Gruber in Bimini exists. The rest seem to be actors.

Sonny Gruber is still working and getting on film? Good for him.

 

While I can't watch any of shark week, I think that Discovery is in risk of jumping the shark themselves if they don't cut the crap. I wouldn't want to work with them if I was a legit science without an established rep like Gruber.

Yep. That's why she was happy that her help on the science/paleo side was both minimal and not acknowledged. DC sold he filming to the museum as a Shark Week segment on the Megladon so they showed them the collection, set of shots of fossils and the lead scientists gave interviews. Those all got cut and pasted into the BS episode of the megladon still around and responsible for attacks off SA. At least the hammerhead stuff this year was reasonably factual, if a bit sensationalized.

 

I guess simple, structured science isn't exciting.

Discovery Channel came back this year with more fiction-as-fact, including a feature about a legendary 20-plus-foot hammerhead named "Old Hitler," a fake documentary about a boat called Joy Ride that sinks in sharky waters, and more efforts to convince us that Megalodon still cruises near popular beaches. (Last year, Discovery stood by its Megalodon piece and pointed out its disclaimers.)

 

I cannot watch ANYTHING on that fake-u-mentury channel. Once I know half of it is fake, trying to figure out which half is just too annoying.

The only thing I could watch is if the Duck Dynasty millionaires-pretending-to-be-idiots caught the Amish Mafia actors-pretending-to-be-Amish-enforcers and used them for bait in a real shark fishing contest. THAT would be good TV ;)

"old Hitler" is said to be a resident of Boca Grande pass, which is notorious for big hammerheads and tigers.

 

But I tried to watch and couldn't. Some neat photography though.

Apparently they pantsed some poor scientist on the hammerhead thing too. I couldn't watch it, but there was an article about how it was mostly B.S. and again the scientist was taken out of context and irritated.

 

I assume this is the bit on the giant hammerhead that was supposedly haunting some waters for sixty years...

The only scientist I recall on the hammerhead side was Gruber. J hasn't said whether he's in Bimini this week and if she has heard anything about what he thought. It was a bit overdramatic but the bit about seasonal relocation of hammerheads and all is some of the winter research at the lab. At least large hammerheads are real and D didn't make up a still living prehistoric shark or imbue one with cunning planning and stalking of a boatload of people like that stud "Submarine" episode.

 

I do know that a lot of scientists are sorry they gave interviews and I've heard many have sworn to never talk to DC again. It's a tough position. On one hand, "there's no such thing as bad publicity". On the other, some of this is bad publicity at best and the "Jaws" mindset doesn't help the cause of conservation minded efforts.

No, boring old science is boring.

And in retrospect why Ocearch is so interesting and why they get so much backing.

"Oh, pro fisherman with loads of money doing cool stuff with sharks that involves basically fishing for them!"

 

REMUS has generated a ton of interest in WHOI with the assaults it got at Guadalupe.

I've spent a lot of time fishing Boca Grande. The bull sharks will get you long before you get close enough to a hammerhead. But they did catch close to a world record hammerhead down there not long ago.

I was working for the NMFS Apex Predator Investigation when "Jaws: the Revenge" hit the theaters. Needless to say, none of the shark scientists were interested in seeing it - even to show up drunk and mock it. Then I learned that every Jaws or shark movie swamped them with mail...most of it pretty unintelligent. The female scientists were far more interested in checking out Timothy Dalton as a the new James Bond...

 

The most interesting thing about that movie is that Roy Scheider showed a lot more career discretion than Michael Caine, who demonstrated that he is clearly a role ho' that will do pretty much any movie for a buck. After reading the novelization I couldn't bring myself to watch the movie.

 

It did NOT generate a lot of intelligent shark discourse...

Like i said, been to dux beach pretty much all my life, which is coming on 50 soon. Well aware of the activity out on the cape, but have never seen or heard of seeing any seal/shark/ gwhite at dux beach or the bay in all that time. When there we're on or in the water pretty much every day...

The (very oldschool) Green Harbor/Plymouth comm fleets have both seen great whites years ago. But that was during the seal moratoriums.

The difference is nobody cared and they weren't posting a hundred photos to try to become facebook famous.

Darwin cheated. Just about twilight. Kayaking to photograph seals where Great Whites have been seen regularly. Go mix with and imitate the prey at dinner time. At least the shark didn't like plastic and spit the kayak out after one taste.

I suspect Shark Week 2015 might have an investigative feature on sharks and tornadoes. The legendary "Tornado Sharks" of Kansas, that are rumored to exist for the last fifty years, striking suddenly during storms. Maybe if the ichthyologists won't talk to them any more they can con a few storm chasers into some choice quotes.

 

Or they will cover that scary ghost shark I heard a rumor of.

Have it your way. Go kayak at sunset among a group of seals when Great Whites are reported in the area. Let us know how it works out for you. What percentage of the sharks visiting do you think are being seen and reported? Feeling lucky? This is the new normal. Marine mammal protection has increased seal populations and more understanding of shark behavior and reduced numbers of idiots out killing them for "sport" is helping to maintain and perhaps increase the shark population. More prey leads to more predators. Add in a doubling of recreational kayakers who seem oblivious to their surroundings and there is a predictable result.

 

I dive and I kayak. I don't do it at twilight and I don't do it around prey animals that present a silhouette very similar to my kayak. I leave that shit to my daughter who swims with sharks at night for research purposes. And if one day I get the call that it didn't go well, I'm not blaming the shark.

I loved the part a few years ago when my buddy Frank Mundus was driving around with the PHD guy off South Africa and there were no bites for 3 hours on the little seal silouhette...so Frank pulls it in and says "yah gotta make it interesting for them" and adds some ripped up material as streamers..puts it in the water and 30 seconds later an 18 ft White launches herself out of the water with the seal in her mouth..

 

I always liked that he had his x-wifes wedding ring in his ear..

Darwin cheated. Just about twilight. Kayaking to photograph seals where Great Whites have been seen regularly. Go mix with and imitate the prey at dinner time. At least the shark didn't like plastic and spit the kayak out after one taste.

 

"Twice so far this year and a couple times in the past couple years" is 'regularly'?

 

Awesome to hear from people from nowhere around here.

 

Have it your way. Go kayak at sunset among a group of seals when Great Whites are reported in the area. Let us know how it works out for you. What percentage of the sharks visiting do you think are being seen and reported? Feeling lucky? This is the new normal.

I fish at dawn and twilight around our newest colonies that have already attracted sharks. They're really not as common a sight as you might think. This isn't Seal Island.

I never met Frank Mundus, I would have loved too.
