I reported your post as inoffensive and non objectionable, it makes me feel insecure and look bad. Therefore I feel abused.

I haven’t been forced to agree to their terms of service yet, maybe this will stir them to correct their oversight. Or maybe you have a different legal standing based on country of login?
not terms of service.
I was asked to agree for them to harvest my data. (if that's the right term)
I dont think I've ever been presented with this on any forum.

Probably wouldn't matter as I routinely lie about any & all personal information posted online.

Yes we noticed that.
You:re not an ex-convict from Tasmania, but an ex-convict, from Tasmania.

Oops, do I now get banned for disclosing "personal information of others" ?

Holy fuckeroly, Sailing Anarchy might never be the same again, in fact it looks like we're fucked.

When Scot Tempesta sold this site without disclosing the new owners, many of us wondered if this might spell trouble. A somewhat lame email and a thread started by the new owner did not give us much confidence either.
While an extensive software update kept us busy, not many seem to have noticed the new Terms and Rules right at the bottom of the forum pages.

It may be a legal thing, but I'm fearing that Scot may have sold out to the devil.
Pretty sure I told y'all I sold it to Enthused Digital. As for whatever rules they are posting or enforcing, I have no say in that at all, and based on first blush, it wouldn't be how I would do it. Curious how it all goes...

Hell of a name, that, enthused digital. Keep their nasty digit’s away from the youngsters!

It's all just boilerplate terms of service requirements, as previously imposed with SA under Scot's regime.

If Enthused Digital does not want to play ball with the anarchy tendencies of the general readership, then anarchyofsailing.com is always available.

Don't think you disclosed that anywhere in the thread where you announced the sale:

Never mind, you didn't have to, and that was perhaps more up to the new owners.
And if they have any sense, they are not going to enforce those "Cruiser Forum" rules.

Anyway, we should throw a virtual farewell party for you by the end of the year, when you are released from your editor duties. I bet that's gone be "defamatory, abusive, hateful, threatening, and likely to offend."
:poop:

I do hope that E.D. (Enthused Digital) do not go all limp and destroy the anarchy that is SA. (or "Say" for short).
But in todays world SA was an outlier.. super.. .but an outlier.. In the woke world, sailing may be cancelled, as it is to 'elitist' and ....

When I worked for Adobe we sold image hosting, processing and delivery to ecomm web pages. So of course, we wanted to sell to the porn industry! Adobe shot that down faster than you say PORN!
I worked for a large computer storage company then. They sold all they could to porn sites, but through a distributor, and - funny thing - didn’t have Debbie Does Dallas on the customer references web page.

They sold even more to wall st high frequency traders, which is worse than porn because instead of fucking each other they fuck everybody.

PS your lame-o website redesign took off half my avatar’s head.

I hope you got a lot of money and can retire.
