      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Oh no! the admins of a SAILING forum have decided they don't want to deal with the shit in it's political sub-forum. Whatever shall they, and the vast majority of people who come here primarily for the discussions on sailing, do now that Dabs is gone, and SV is gone, and the thread that was discussing them being flicked is gone... 

...I mean, other than shrug, ask who really gives a shit, and return to their discussion of sailing.

Pretty fucking heavy handed of the thought police to kill the thread just after I pointed out that SV had real sailing credentials.   I'm trying to decide if I want to get flicked or if I'd rather go to bed.    Never did much like authority, now this thread has a big brother making sure we don't have a thoughtcrime.     It was also pointed out that SV was himself accused of pedophilia in the now unthread.

And now the example for others is gone, for those who did not see or happen.   The fatal bear trap that all have been warned about has been reset.

Fucking hard for the community to learn manners this way.  

But then, as we have been reminded before, PA is not valued by management.  Walled off and tolerated.

cmilliken had said Dabs final post was just the usual race bating.  It appears SV was successfully provoked into a posting that some questioned but which would get past any firewall.   He was then accused of being a pedo, and banned.   His accuser was not banned.    The thread was banned to destroy the evidence.     I'm curious how long this thread will last.

And your problem with that is... well, what exactly? It's a bloody sailing forum. It's in the freaking name of the place. Plenty of other websites focused on politics if you want it.

Hell, politicalpisspot.com is still available if you want to start up a political free-for-all forum without any other needs and considerations.

This one surprises me much more than the thread nuking. It's not like Turd Sandwich even tries to look like anything but a troll-sock. That he's still around but SV got nuked is a bit whiffy. The only thing that "might" make it reasonable is if SV went mental in PM (he wouldn't be the first asshole to try hiding their real intent behind the PM wall).

Honestly, don't think it has jack to do with anyone discussing the merits of former members. They banned SV (for reasons unstated) and those who thought that it was the earlier pedo references started arguing about the lack of consistency given the Turd Sandwich sock was still around. A dash of "We don't have to explain ourselves" mixed into the usual batch of "Fuck it, who wants to deal with PA's shit" goes a lot further in explaining the threads absence than trying to shut down discussion of SV's sailing accolades.

SV posted a picture of "My First Little Boob Job". It was skating on thin ice and I can see it might have deserved a warning.

Turd Sandwich made a statement that posting said image was about SV's desire for young children (can't recall the exact words, but he was doing more than imply pedo). He's not nuked, but seems pretty quiet given his usual MO of shitting over everyone and everything.

Perhaps SV had a flag on record already. He's been known to fly off the handle before with little provocation, and this was perhaps the last straw for a mod team who no longer cares to police spats in PA.

I get the rationale offered to why insinuating pedo is a banning offence.  What I don't get is why just pedo?

I have been to print here before suggesting that telling someone to kill themselves (as has happened, even with someone who claimed to have considered topping themselves)  is worthy of banning the author.  The rationale being that it is possible that someone could take the advice and do it.  It's kind of a one-way trip.  But that's all good here.  Accusing someone of being a pedo although serious and ban worthy... isn't fatal FFS. 

As would a variety of other claims that can be made at the click of a mouse.  Mother-fucker is a an accusation of incest, illegal in most white western countries but perfectly ok in PA.  Calling someone gay, bi-sexual, insane, dishonest, a criminal, or guilty of a list of illegalities as bad a pedo in eyes of the law, that could definitely affect the reputation of a person, but they are fine here.

Odd isn't it?

Edit: I see the post count in PA has reduced by ~30,000.  The Great Purge is underway.

This.

I don't recall who created that thread but I suspect it got deleted because (1) it had some leftovers from SV and (2) there was scratching at the scab relative to Dabs.  I don't think the thread creator got zapped - that thread was a vestigial organ.

Lark - you are an 'honor student' relative to the baseline in this place :)

I thought it was actually SloopJon that started the Dabs thread. Can't verify it now, but that was my vague memory of it's origin. I know it wasn't Dabs (obviously) or SV, so it wasn't an automatic deletion based on their excision from the database.

Honestly reckon it's removal was a combination of what cmilliken described (scratching at the SV & Dabs scabs); plus a healthy dose of "The thread isn't going to get better once it hits the pedo insinuations, just nuke it".

Sloop started the thread.    I was pissed they censored my conversation and took the dog for a walk instead of explaining in great graphic details what was wrong with the management,   Mrleft8 was responding to a quote I dug up from a January poll on sailing background.   I think he has met SV.    SV's list of experience was deleted but impressive.    There was a quote, I think By The Lee, wondering if he was for real.    The mod dropped the hammer as Mrleft8's comment came up.   I can't find that poll either now but don't have time to look.

I do indeed know SV. I have been on both of his last two boats, A Hinckley Islander, and a Tancook Schooner. I even did a little work on the Tancook.

He has sailed a lot more than most people on this forum, before medical issues grounded him a few years ago, I'd be willing to bet.

Neither guy will be missed by me. Dabs was funny at first but woefully predictable. And like BL, started so many threads I normally skipped on by because the discussion was too obvious. Sandy was just a "me too" guy. Doubtless a better sailor than a political analyst. 15K threads in a very short time. None of us has that much to say of any value. That SV got impaled by the one and only rule says it all to me,

What is noteworthy, imho, is that these flickings are healthy for the sub-forum. I'd like to see more of it. These guys were nobodies aggravating everybody. As noted upthread, the insults get old fast. I can't see the need to label a guy an idiot for disagreeing with you. Plus most of us are well-educated. But like driving at rush hour, behavior always goes down, never up. I can recall a time when you kinda sorta lost an argument when your only comeback was a personal insult.

He was no sock or spammer..(thats for bus driver)

He knew more about boats and sailing than most of you.

Sure he jumped in to every thread fists flailing..but to lump him in with likes of Dabnis just demonstrates poor character judgment on your parts.

1) SV never trolled anyone or anything

2)SV was never a racist.

Some of you remind me of a mob at a public hanging.

It took years for the mods to take firm action, but there were a handful of posters taking the pedo accusations way too far. Including threatening to contact other posters' yacht club boards to "warn" them of these accusations they were hearing on the web, to "protect" the children at the club. Of course they were the ones making the accusations in the first place.

With all due respect, Meli, how good a sailor SV might be / have been means absolutely sweet fuck all when it comes to his behaviour in PA.

SV didn't have to troll any specific individual because he attacked everyone. I lost count months ago of how often he would attack someone because he misunderstood something, didn't get a pop culture or current affairs reference, and/or didn't have the capability of admitting he made a mistake without acting like a spoilt five year old. That he knew more about boats than most the socks here has jack shit to do with whether he was worth tolerating when he flailed in about politics.

I don't think his post deserved a banning, but when it comes to signal vs noise in PoliticalAnarchy - he and Dabs were  100% in the same boat. Dabs racist trolling was more than made up for by the sheer volume of nonsensical, ill-informed, and often unintelligible ranting coming from SV. This was not a good place for a man like that. PA & SV were an ill fit and both are better off without the other.

And there are many other places he can socialise. His removal from here isn't preventing him from socialising - he's just as capable of annoying other people online in hundreds of thousands of other forums. All that his banning does here is stop him being a nuisance to people who were, quite frankly & obviously, sick of the guy having nothing worth listening to. Which might not be such an issue if he wasn't out posting everyone in an effort to rant at everyone and everything they might choose to comment on.

Don't need to be harmful to be an unrelenting nuisance. Just look at Dabs. ;)

Sadly, yeah, the man couldn't even keep up with the low level of intellect this sub-forum considers "normal". The guy was STILL incapable of understanding the sarcasm font and STILL incapable of accepting someone who explained it to him when he flew off the rails unnecessarily. Sad thing was, he was giving the troll socks a good rep by comparison when it came to simple reading comprehension... and as you point out, they're not exhibiting much in the way of higher level brain function.

Dabs OTOH ?? well yer..you can tar and feather him. 

But this was a place for him to socialise. He harmed no one unless you're the sort that gets all hot & weepy when an old man has a bit of a rant in your general direction. He actually COULD keep up with the "intellect" of this political forum. And so on. I'm sure you get the picture.

Both of them were relatively harmless gits. Both of them were a nuisance that we're better off without. In the case of SV though, I actually think he's also better off without PA (whereas Dabs should go into withdrawal in a few days and hit up another sailing web-site hoping to be noticed by someone from here, or SailNet, or ... - the man has a pattern).

If Dabs called himself "Sinbad," who would be the wiser?

Dabs had no place here, he was a misguided old racist, and his racial taunts became boorish. Sv Airlie was a gadfly but added more to the conversation than he took away, he sometimes got into childish disputes that were a waste of time, and disrupted threads at times. His rebuke should be temporary and not permanent, if it is permanent, it is an authoritarian overreach and should be reconsidered. The same for Turd Sandwich, I can't recall him having priors and if his record is clean his rebuke should be temporary also. I hope the mod, or Editor makes this clear along with the reasoning for their decision.

it's simple really. Just avoid the Pedo stuff, and don't be a total racist a-hole (that's new) and the mods don't seem to care HOW annoying you are. Otherwise Poopie would be gone by now.

cmilliken had said Dabs final post was just the usual race bating.

Not really - he amped it way up in the post that killed him - the old "one drop of blood" bullshit.

Surprised about SV though - that pic of the "children's book" he posted was so obviously satirical I can't imagine anyone including it under the pedo rules.

just IMHO, it wasn't necessarily the book, I believe he implied it was the sort of book another poster enjoyed.

Offering an opinion... expecting transparency... 

Come on.  You think this place is a democracy?  It's a privately-owned dictatorship; never pretended to be anything else. 

First rule: do not piss off the Owner. 

The line isn't whether you "deserve" to be flicked; it's whether Scott's fed up with your shit.

To be honest, I didn't see it that way.  His assertion that he found that cover through a search of "children's books" (or whatever he said) was complete bullshit.  But, I thought he was just being a dick.

Don't piss off the customers is as old as don't piss off the owner. If I don't like the behavior I see, I'll go somewhere else...no problem.

I love how some are defending SV.  I believe It's only because he batted for their team.  He was a nasty old bastard to some of us.   He took a shot involving my daughter and rape a few weeks back so he ended up on ignore.  Frenchy nailed it Dabs didn't break the only rule but Scot flicked him anyway.   If SV crossed the pedo line, he knew not to cross tough shit your gone.

Only because you have little knowledge of boats and sailing, yet you continue to plague a sailing forum.

Maybe. I come here because I'm comfortable, I know the players, I know how they think and it makes discussion more lively than at an anonymous message board where the trolls are almost professional, and the idiots make poopie pants seem like a Nobel prize winner. 

The adverts here I never see, and the management has never asked me to turn off my adblocker which I would happily do if asked.

Don't know about the rest of you but I have already forgotten the contents of all posts and threads started by whoever was flicked. 

Was somebody flicked?

You missed The Great PA Conservative Purge-O-Rama. Dabs - Flicked. SVA - Flicked. Turd - Flicked. Threads containing Dabbling - Perma Flushed. Seems there was some Pedo insinuations/innuendo along with some general house cleaning. Rumor has it that Moderate is next. Same 'ol shit. Nothing to see here...

I will eagerly spread that "last days of Moderate" rumor 

Sandy Vag  was certainly  a conservative right winger but Wasn't Dabs a huge advocate for BLM, Obama, gun controls, and inviting Mecicsn rapists to vote??
