Besides, the fact is that this forum is open for anyone to read without registering an account. Anyone and everyone can get a fair idea of what is acceptable and what is not simply by taking the time to read the forum, not to mention the clear and explicit rules sum it up rather well.

Taking the effort to register an account and contribute to the forum should be a reasonable indication that you accept and enjoy the forum as it is. Yet, some people decide that it will be more fun to register an account just to complain about how things are run than to simply hop onto Google and shop around for a forum that is more acceptable to their liking. Or could it be that there is no other forum that accepts the bull they expect to be acceptable?

For people who do not like having moderators and civil discussion around, may I suggest alt.* newsgroups instead? You may find the completely unregulated nature of newsgroups more to your liking.

Personally, I would like to thank the admins here for the job they do. They are part of the reason I enjoy this forum as much as I do.

I agree with the foregoing and wiish to add a comment.

While the moderators here do a good job, they have also done a heck of a job of creating a community that is ready to police itself. When someone seems to get or be getting out of line, I've noticed that other members will readily post and comment in a way that is a defence of the standards set for the community. And that for most of the regular members, a word from others is enough to end it.

That says something for the whole community, but things do not get to be that way without leadership.

You make a good point. Those members that want to keep this forum running smoothly definitely want to lend a hand and help "moderate" the discussions.

I can honestly say that there are not many tight knit forums like this one. Definitely not with the same subject matter!

Moderators keep me from getting so many headaches. I love 'em. If you don't like them, go play somewhere else.

ps: non-cap rambling gives me a headache...

Since you seem so opposed to the reasonable order and restrictions we have here, I really don't see why you bother. I'll just assume you are looking to be banned and accommodate you for a week. You are welcome back after that if you decide to become a member of the community, but I sort of doubt you will, but...
