      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.

I can barely keep the car on the road as we head over to HQ in a full gale. Awards start at 1. I'm trying to get a few pics of the harbor- it's a sight to see. I can barely imagine what the south course would look like, with gusts past 35 and an opposing tide of 1 or 2 knots.

Clean-Luiz et al...Thanks for the reporting. Sorry the weather behaved like it did but the good new is that you are not 300 miles north where it is getting really ugly.

 

For those who missed the Wx advisory last night they may or may not be able to crane out over the next 36 hours as things get windier. (I know, you don't need more wind right now)

 

Can't wait to see the pictures...Somebody needs to go get an image of the OCEAN conditions south of the harbor if they can...should be epic 35-50 knots.

There's a chick named Lola that you need to be really careful of, bro. Also, if you want any Dakine gear, for some reason there's a dude in Cabarete who sells it cheaper than anywhere else on the planet. Got a sweet computer bag for $45.

Pics coming in a couple of minutes, no one's got the balls to go outside to see the real insanity. The dock is evacuated, the bridge is closed, I saw 49 knots on the clock as we were helping Tedeschi retie Tastes Like Chicken, but the guy next to us said he saw 63 a few minutes earlier.

 

Some of the J/80 guys are still in the water, pretty much have to leave it here until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Cat 5 called the forecast pretty damned well, and sent updates every few hours for the last 16 - thanks a ton, from us and from the race committee, and the competitors. No one is too bummed out, at least we get a great show of wind and water.

Go and say hi to Bri and Kris on Angry Chameleon. Hope they're OK, still in the water though.

 

Great job this weekend.

Yeah, AC and Outrageous are in the water. The wind has dropped a touch, not too much though. Awards shortly, Mike. BTW, I'll be in town by Friday, and will come by and pick up the mags - thanks for your patience bro.

 

Any racing up there next weekend?

The way the weather has been, I'd be amazed if there are any boats in the water. American Spring Series is the 28th but nothing next weekend.

 

Give me a hollar, maybe we can have dinner?

 

Cheers,

 

MikeR

 

btw, if you get the chance, let me know if AC is doing OK in the water.

Mike,

AC is ok. Worst is over now. Saw Brian and Kris couple of hours ago. They sailed a great regatta. Congrats on their first place finish! We got rocket dog out yesterday after racing. We were ready for the road by 7 p.m. Still very windy, we'll head home tomorrow.

Many thanks, Mark, I was concerned that they might be facing something like what happened at KW a couple of years ago. Yes, they've got the boat going pretty well and you certainly can't say that they're not enthusiastic about things.

 

Really nasty up here in NY, had some gusts over 50 this afternoon and rain, rain, rain.

 

Drive safely,

 

Cheers,

Hey, just noticed, we registered on the same day in 2003. I guess I was a couple of hours before you.

 

Glad your boat's OK, drive safely back home.

 

Cheers,

Man what a weekend, flew down here for one day of sailing. Still had a pretty good time at the parties and whatnot. Checked out the Yorkshire yesterday after the awards ceremony and that was pretty cool. Standing on the bridge deck some 7 stories off the water you could really get an appreacation for the wind, easily 40 kts. The waves pounding over the outer breakwater, or what little you could see of it, were cool to watch with a pair of binoculars.

 

Well I'm off to the airport to try and get on my 6am flight home to NY, hopefully it goes better than Thursdays debacle getting down here.

 

More on the racing when I actually wake up.
