That was really necessary.

Clear rules as any forum should have.

Very nice, I like.

I think you've covered just about everything. It's really sad you have to point all this out, though. Although things like advertising your blog needed to be cleared up. hopefully everyone will follow the rules

I respect your opinion.

But I don't think it's sad. It's necessary.

There's no modern society that lives based on moral rules. We need law, I mean written rules.

My moral rules are not better than any of the users here and I think no one has better than mine.

Common sense is kind of ask for too much, mainly due the moral statement above.

Now we have rules. Now we have traced what our forum is all about. Of course that each one's moral rules (or even what every user may consider common sense) are the same but if he/she wants to join the forum (and not be banned) he/she has to follow the rules. Simple as that.

Again, I respect your opinion but that's my point of view about it.

Thanks arn, these are great. Most of these completely seem to be based off of arguments that was recently involved in....

The rules were made to enforce common sense. And yes, it is sad that we need someone to tell us to use common sense.

Have you seen some of the threads lately? Utterly ridiculous.

But yes, it is 100% necessary

Yes, and edited according to that discussion, which I believe was deleted.
