      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.

Yeap... that's the girl with the new owners. Looks like they did a great job and TLC to her. That's the ex-Renegade, ex-Luna Barba. But she's not a standard SC70. This one's got a tall fractional carbon rig running both frac and masthead kites and a deaper keel with a bulb.

 

Great boat to sail and I sure miss her.

Renegade is an Andrews 73, Luna Barda was a turboed SC70.... Different boats

True Lies, you need to do your homework before you correct others.

 

Yes, you're right. But you're only right about one thing... there are two different boats. The were both owned by the same guy from Detroit, MI, both called "Renegade", with same graphics and both sail numbers USA55.

 

The Andrews 70 (not 73 unless stretched since) was a sistership to the old "Trader" Andrews 70 built in Estonia in the early '90. She came to the Great LAkes, sailed a couple of years and went off to live in Vancouver with new owners.

 

The SC70 was previously/originally named "Luna Barba" (turbo at that time) from the NW and was purchased by the guys in Detroit in the mid/late 90s, detuned back to a standard SC70, raced in the Great Lakes with the rest of the SC70 fleet and in early 2000 or 2001 shipped down to FL and turboed again. She was sold to the current owners this past Fall/Winter and renamed "Midnight Rider".

I watched the Charleston to Bermuda start before our d12 laser regatta. Looked like a pretty sweet boat, even though it basically had to drift out of the harbor :D

Well maybe I am confused but that happens.... I have seen both boats side by side in Vancouver.

It's possible that you saw the two together. Renegade (Andrews) went to Vancouver in late 94-95 and Luna Barba (SC) was still there. They did not buy her until 97-98.

Dan had the Andrews out for Sailpast last weekend. Looking pretty spiffy from a distance. Is the SC the one that was damaged in the hurricanes last year?

LZ - Can't chat today - taking Leo from Blondie to Cubs vs Sox Game @ Wrigley. Big day her in Chi-town.

 

Quick Update.. Windancer N/M 68 sold and moving to Chicago Yacht Club members ... Cynosure going over to Muskegan to replace Windancer. Looks like Stripes might be in Chicago for most of the Summer. Looks like we'll have 7-8 Sleds for bouy racing and 10 for the Macs. Great work on the Bayview Mac Websight.

We'll catch up next week..

Sounds lke a great day in ChiTown. Yea, I heard about the boat switches. Who ended up with the NM68 at CYC? Glad she at least stayed around the area.

 

Keep in touch. I look forward to seeing you guys this summer. May not be until sometime before Chi-Mac. Doing Detroit NOOD, Mills race in Lake Erie than on to Block Island to do some RC work (scoring and other computer stuff). Will miss Chi NOOD :-(

 

Cheers and say Hi to Leo/Louie for me and have a great day at the ball park

 

LZ

 

p.s. glad you like the sites... seen the CYC Mac lately? ;-)

I believe Gene McCarthy is one of the new owners of the NM68. Cyno is Muskegon bound today or tomorrow. LZ, are you looking for a ride for the Tripp?

Talked to John yesterday and the new Winddancer is it the dock it Torresen. I'm only guessing he will keep the name but I have been wrong before. This should be a step up for them . The old 68 was showing it's age.

Barley,

 

Thanks for the thought on a ride. I would love to do the races again this year but need to wait for a little while to see how things are running with the races. As you know, I'm RC for the Bayview Mac this year (I'd love to get my Mom & Dad out on the starting line and up to Mac if his health allows him to go) and having just setup the new Chicago Mac web site, I need to make sure things are running OK and the RC volunteers are comfortable with the running of the program at least until I get to the Island.

 

I'll keep you posted on how things are going and look forward to seeing you guys on the water this summer.

 

LZ

 

p.s. I hope the new owners are still planning on coming over to this side for our race too.
