My experience on Sailing Anarchy is not isolated or unique. Scot Tempesta has been plagued with nefarious activity, it seems, for a long, long time. (See my attached blog post, dated November 17, 2017, re: the *********** suit back in ca. 2010.) His apology to *********** would have been part of that particular defamation suit.
As for the Sailing Anarchy Community Reputation Points (CR[a]Ps), they are still being arbitrarily changed (see my post last week to Zapata about my own numbers not adding up). They mean nada to anyone except those who have astronomically high plus-CR[a]P scores. A quick glance will show that profanity, e.g., one-word swear words, counts as anarchic wisdom.*
For example, a few posts shortly after I posted on the site today, Gouvernail made dismissive remarks about someone, who has minus-1300 CR[a]Ps, saying outright that the user ought not to be believed, consequently, for anything he posts. I would have thought you’d know better, G, what with your supposed senior status in SA, as exemplified by your plus-CR[a]P score.
In my case, someone has attached and continues to attach live reply fields to previous user’s posts (see my “Open Letter to the Owner of Sailing Anarchy,” dated August 13, 2017), with my name and avatar pic on them. Anyone can then say anything in the field, and the comments are attributed to myself as a result.
The posts made by the hacks are then DownVoted, then Deleted, leaving no record of them except what can be seen by the Administrator, Zapata(?) But the DownVote numbers remain added to my minus-CR[a]P score.
It would explain why my CR[a]P score keeps going up even though I’ve not posted anything in the Forums for weeks, months. Earlier this year, someone slapped up four posts of 30 DownVotes each to my account. Back on October 31, I was given Leadership Status for my day’s posts, when I wasn’t even online that day.
Someone has recently added the DownVote icon to some of my blog posts, which are Locked, and have always been Locked. Mid and Donald Trump’s Cat’s Ass had a hey day some time ago, DownVoting anything I posted in my Locked blog. Did the Administrator do anything about it, when I reported the hack? No, he did not. To this day.
But who are the people doing this? Is the hacking being done by those who are SA anarchists/users, or are they outside hackers? My guess is the former. I would think someone long familiar with the mechanics of this website would know exactly how to mess it up, particularly since this seems to have been going on for years.
Regardless of who the dastardly doers are, the site is hacked. No doubt about it. And, no, B.J. Porter, I do not want to hear from you any more, saying anything to the contrary.
I continue to remain vigilant, like any experienced ocean racer does, when faced with rogue waves whether on the high seas or from offshore.

*This is not a quality of anarchy. It is an example of vulgarity. Period.
N.B. Whenever the name of the plaintiff appears in any post in SA, a string of ******* appear. Interesting, huh?
Strange… My "Open Letter to the Owner of Sailing Anarchy," dated August 13, 2017, keeps disappearing from my blog. And it appears as a 404 Error in my Status Updates. Here it is again. Like the cat that keeps coming back… Why is that, Scot Tempesta? Don’t want SA Users to know why I have a personal interest in your website, huh?
Caveat: Someone has my SA account, blocking activity since January 30, 2018. We should talk, huh, @Zapata? And would you kindly check your stats re: Likes vs. DownVotes. There weren't enough posts to warrant the Votes. Nothing adds up.
You may also want to tell me to whom I should talk/post, since it seems you've decided that I can't be "an obnoxious wit." You're the authority here, yes? Yeah, and tell me which Forums are suitable for me, too.
Well anarchiests, I have tried spring sailing at the Mediterranean Sea. It means first warm sun of spring and last strong winds of winter.
We passed app.400 miles from the shore of Croatia to the Italian border where are located 2 islands. They are called small and big Palagruza. Big one has one lighthouse. This lighthouse is hotel either.
We had some storms, waves, strong winds, broachings, broken sales, lightings while the race. Awesome experience.
Details... Yeah, you can find it at the following video:
Full video of the race
Such a focus of attention, am I. Get over it, gang. They're only 1s and 0s. (FYI, someone in an unguarded moment of glee, decided to slap up four posts of 30 Downvotes each on my account on October 31, drastically escalating my negative community reputation here. It snowballed from that point on, amusing everyone to no end. I took no notice of it, but everyone else did.)
Updated 04.22.2018: Speaking Different Languages —Captain Gigi 04.22.2018 • Tempesta: I found only one person, who could do that on SA, and it wasn't you or your cohorts. ("I'll tell it not in Gath.") • SB: They just don't get that they've hacked Drive, not my account. Stupid, huh?
Reading threads in Sailing Anarchy's Forums constitutes 'stalking' by some anarchists, who clearly know nothing about ocean racing, where 'stealth mode' is a well known strategy used by racers who have an 'ace up their sleeve' as they attempt to outmanoeuvre their competitors. Here in SA, stealth mode translates into stalking supposedly.
I'm proud to have received a 'STALKING' notice from webmaster Zapata, when in actual fact, I was just reading the Forums. (I was no slouch on the high seas; ditto here in SA. Stealth, I know.) He's demonstrated he knows nothing about how SA Users follow their favorite topics much less anything about ocean racing. And he sure as shootin' knows squat about stealth. Sad, as the Prez would say.
. . . and has left the house.
trouble for sea cats
'bomb' could soon overtake them

P.S. Sailing Anarchy Abnormal Behaviour Study Phase II complete. No surprises in the outcome, conclusions. Les attaquants brutaux ne sont pas pardonnables.
Why I don't post on the Sailing Anarchy Forums any longer, plus the fact that the site is hacked. Anonymous crackers are arbitrarily changing the Community Reputation Points, creating all sorts of anarchic mayhem for those who care about their reputation on this website, when those of us who know what's what know that there are no leaders in any self-respecting anarchy. Right, Scot Tempesta?
Ok. Here is a shot story about my first offshore racing experience.
It was difficult to choose race because of the standart long distance 600nm. A lot of people said that it's boring. Who knows if I don't like first 100nm how can I get out at last 500nm. That's right I will not be able. So I need smth shorter. Some research and I've got a link for "Offshore Challenge 2017" which was organized by Offshore racing club of Austria and Croatian sailing federation. The place was not so far. It was Adriatic sea. I have to fly app.4 hours. The distance was shorter and interesting. It was a half of the standart race. I mean 300 nm. Moreover it was a break for a day at the middle of the race. So, there are 2 rounds measured by 150 mn. We sailed from Biograd-na-more to Dubrovnik and then go back.
The first round was exciting with fresh wind 15-20 knots blowing in our course. So we sailed broadreach or deadrun all the distance. Some times wind changed direction rapidly up to 30 degrees and it was nice practice of sttering with spinnaker. To the end of the race at last 4-5 nm all wind dissapeared because we get into the land shadow at night. So race became ordinary inshore distance. All the other story was awasome.
The second distance was passed on a half and wind was ended at all. So how was good anyone we don't know by tracking system. But I suppose that such calm conditions make officers to cancel results of the second stage.
Anyway, here is the second race of the Offshore Challenge 2017:
To Grande Mastere Dreade
Musing… Whether you are a valid chess grandmaster or a counterfeit one. I digress nevertheless, as a small group of us academic types continue to debate if the Sailing Anarchy (SA) website is a bounded public, or if it’s just a tiny public of bounders. A conclusion has not been reached.
Early observations reveal a website predominantly accommodating raucous trash talk amongst ‘fuckwits,’ ‘fuck-buddies-to-each-other,’ and rabid, alt-right, political ranters. Much like in the chessworlds with which you may be familiar, one immediately sees that the prevalence of homosexual eros and misogynist erotica are integral to engaged participation in the online community.
It is uncommon to find women in these “locker room talk” forums where violence and sexual expletives are the accepted norm. Some of our researchers suggest that Melania Trump, the current wife of the 45th POTUS, could be the SA poster child/woman, who dismisses the humiliation and patronization directed by men towards women. However they are cognizant that psychology and socio-anthro journals are already over-filled with studies of abnormal behavior in the hetero- and homosexual communities, and further research would be redundant, to say the least. Those women (of which I am one), who do maintain an engaged presence on the SA site, do so as participant-observers in an independent study. #METOO
