      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.

Pussies!

 

We had 26" of rain in 24 hours here on the Redneck RIviera a couple of springs ago. Mobile is the rainiest city in the Lower 48. It doesn't just drizzle for day or weeks on end though. Comes down hard and we get lots of sun too. However we haven't had a drop of rain in all of October and will probably finish the month arid. That goes back to 1847 I think for a record.

 

I may move to the PNW to get away from the rain! Actually it would be to get away from the humidity... not to mention a lot of local stupidity.

 

Do you think Seattle is the rainiest city in the United States? Well, think again.

Mobile, Alabama, actually topped a new list of soggiest cities in the 48 contiguous states, with more than 5 feet of rainfall annually, according to a study conducted by San Francisco-based WeatherBill, Inc. [How Weather Changed History]

The Southeast dominated the most rainy list, while the Pacific Northwest never enters the list until Olympia, Washington pops up at number 24.

HTFU PNW!

Worked as a framer on my days off down there, clouds would roll in and we would be done for the day. Can't build in the rain apparently.

There are few things better than a good book by the fire, when it's nasty out. Mind you, I am having to build more bookcases since I retired. But apparently I have the time!

I totally suffer from that disease. I actually have looked at places and talked to realtors in several places. We'd never leave our current place in So Cal.....love it here, but I'd love a second place somewhere very different than here. But......we can't afford a second place AND our boat so there you go. Mrs PB just smiles and humors me through my same analysis each time. "We could rent it out to offset the payments". "Yes dear we could". "Oh heck, the numbers still don't work if we want to travel also". "That's a good point dear". "I guess we'll have to pass". "That's very wise of you dear".

It was weird how I got used to that ... it could start to rain in Alabama, and then just keep raining for three or four days, then it would gradually slow down, make a person think it's all rained out, then start up again for another day.

 

Then finally when it ended, a cloud of mosquitoes the consistency of a cumonimbus would descend within minutes. At one point I got to just leaving the smeared guts of the skeeters on me after I slapped them because it seemed to deter the others a little bit.

 

It's good though. If it wasn't for the rain and skeeters, those areas around Bon Secour would be overrun.

36" of rain a year is nothing really. It is the number of days that are drizzly that other people complain about. Been here in Hilo area for 3 years almost now, where we get 120" of rain a year. Something about being on the windward side of an Island with couple thousand of rain making ocean to the east. When it rains, you definitely know it. And almost everyone has metal roofs, so you hear it too. I can be outside and hear the rain coming up the road from the ocean beating on all of the roofs.

And it is 80 every day, summer or winter. It is those 34 deg. and raining days with 20 knot winds that really get you.

 

But born and raised in the Seattle area, I miss it. But everyone here in Hawaii is told Seattle is NOT the place to move. But I am surprised at how many move there anyway. Oh well.......

 

Keep up the good work, Mr. Lesser Seattle....

80 is too hot. Low 70's is pushing it. Upper 50's to low 60's is perfect.

It's 68 here today. Pushing it but the Sun isn't that strong at this time of year, so it's OK.

Still, it's muddy and I cannot get my lower field harvested yet without pigging up the ground.

Not true! We had that massive storm back in early March that dumped tons of rain in a few hours. I don't think we've had a rein drop since.

For any Americans thinking you can escape here, forget it. Vancouver Island is full and we have closed the gates.

For any Americans thinking you need to escape. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. We don't need any whiney spoiled "I'll take my ball and go home" brats in the mix going forward.

And those slugs are huge!

 

I must say though. Just went out laser sailing here in Hilo. 80 deg, 78 deg water, kind of cloudy, blowing 15-20, 6' to 10' swells outside! Perfect epic day of sailing. Almost launched the laser off a wave crest reaching into the waves! Yea, the wind and waves don't always align here, but that keeps me from have to run in big swells and death rolling!

Yeah, and after a hard day of sailing through the islands this Saturday I'll then have to hit the ski slopes Sunday for some fresh powder. Man, why would ANYBODY want to subject themselves to such abuse! STAY AWAY!
