      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.

Ullman audio cast

Ullman Speaks

 

Our second SA AudioCast was yesterday with Dave Ullman. If you know Dave, then you know what a good guy he is, and if you don't, you'll see, or rather hear it here. This one is fairly long, 30 minutes, and yet it doesn't cover nearly enough ground! We'll probably continue to do these in long form, but offer them in segments. We'd like to hear your comments on this one.

Very nicely done Mr Scot.

I thought it showed what Dave is truly like.

Cool, fun, humble and not at all unapproachable.

Dave really hits it on the nail with his comments on practice and new sails.

 

Maybe you could do another with:

Juan K?

ABN Skipper Sanderson?

Sailed against Dave last weekend. Dave is a great guy and awesome sailor. It was an excellent interview worth listening the whole way through. Wish there were more sailors like him.

 

Cheers!

Podcast instructions for newbies to get the sailing mustached Yoda onto your ipod....

 

right click the link to the file on the SA site.

 

click save file as or save link location as......

 

name it and save where you like on your system. The ullman interview is 28megs, this may take a while, the ed should work on cutting it down.....

 

Now you can listen on whatever media you like....................

 

Open itunes.com

 

Go on library than click file on upper left side of itunes and then in the drop down click add to library

 

Once the mp3 is in your library, you can right click it and add it to a playlist that goes to your ipod.

 

What i did in itunes, is creat a playlist called "sailing Podcasts".

 

Hook up your ipod. When the icon in Itunes shows up, right click, click options, and make sure that Sailing Podcasts" is checked for updating....this will send whatever sailing podcasts you have in that playlist.....

 

Enjoy!

Ed, man you're 2 for 2. This was as good as the last one. Two per month - can you keep it up? Thanks again for the effort. Ullman seemed as classy as I expected.

Dave Ullman is in a class all by himself. He spent 25 minutes with me at Key West answering alot of my questions regarding sail trim and what makes the Melges go. No one else would have taken the time to do this.

 

I hate to give the Ed credit for a job well done, his head is way to big already, but well done Ed!

Well thanks. I know a thing or two about entertaining content. Again, I'd like suggestions on who I should interview next.

Ed - Great stuff. The format has legs. We need more, more, more...

 

Additionally it would be amazing to get a debrief interview with Americans George Peet and/or Andrew Lewis from ABN II. I am sure many on SA would be interested to hear the reflections of these two amazing young sailors after a race where they experienced both the highest highs and lowest lows.

 

Loved the Mike Sanderson suggestion above too but would love to hear from Peet/Lewis first.

To stir the pot a little would be good to have "Screaming Dee Smith" do an interview. He has been around the block more than a few times and could give out some good info. It would be interesting to hear his point view on technical subjects, pro sailing and future of TP52 & the new GP class and find out if he's really the total dick everyone says he is.

 

Others:

 

Buddy Melges, he's a living legend and a great speaker

 

Dennis connor (edit: maybe not)

 

Bouwe Bekking on Movistar

 

Ed Baird on coaching and what sailors should work on.

 

Stan Honey on weather routing.

 

Olin Stephens: another living legend that would be great to listen to.

I've told the Ed that I have one with Bouwe from Baltimore that was OK although I sound like a flaming moron. It's interesting how the interview plays into what happened to them later.

 

I'll get it to him one of these days...

I agree on keeping the clips long. It is great to get into it. Little soundbites would be a real pain. Gotta say, I'd love to hear an interview with Mr. Alphabet on his crazy designs. Roy Disney on the Morning Light project would be some quality content as well.

I would like to listen to Gary Jobson on my way to work...

 

 

I thought it was excellent. On a whim I checked SA 5 minutes before I left for work and downloaded it to my iPod and listened to it in the car on the way there.

 

Only thing that dissappointed me was I didn't get to hear the last 8 minutes- for some reason it got cut off the end of the file...

Isler ain't gonna happen - he's boring. Besides, I don't like him.

Would really be interesting to get an idea about the whole financial end of sailing.

 

Dave brings up the financial interests to the boat builders and the sail makers, but what about the sponsors?

 

What about the Oracle sponsorship of the TP52? What are their budgets like? How do they handle the whole organizational details?

 

As for VOR, more information on the "race central" would be nice. Would be great to get interviews related to the organization of that race.

 

Personally I have no interest in hearing sailing stories, that just is just so - been-there-done-that. Anything related to the business side of things.

Yes - very very nice. Very cool guy. Do 'em as often as you can, and keep 'em long! Interesting little discussion about Dacron mains - definintely hooked my ear! There seems to be a resurgence of the white stuff if recent items on SA are a gauge. I guess it's not just polyester anymore!

Ditto!

 

One reason to see what Dee Smith has to say about such subjects while being a dick and still being able to run top end programs and advising america's cup teams.

 

Also others could be good:

 

Juan K

&

Mark Mills

 

A cool thing would to have an open discussion/debate between several guest in one interview about such subjects.

As in recently incarcerated Australian business man of AC fame?

 

As far as I was aware he was a business man, not a sailor.

That was a great interview Scot. Dave Ullman is a class act and is always willing to answer questions to anyone that approaches him. He hit the nail on the head when he stated that you have to go and practice even at his experience in the game. Also about building the fleet it is important to recognize everyone from the first place boat to the last place boat and keep everyone involved and help each other as much as possible.

 

Good job

I'd like to second the Roy Disney idea, but I think you'd want to wait until after the August Trials. And dont just limit it to Disney, anyone on the production side of things would be cool, Robbie Haines for example.

A fun one to innerview live would be Dave Hulse.

 

Hulse is one of those guys that has really seen it all, and for sure is more fun to hear live.

Thanks Dave! You're a great spokesman for the sport. It's always fun to sail with or against you. Having you out on the water raises the bar and makes everyone better.
