I've seen a fair amount of posts accusing this forum of being too "strict", "overcensored", and the like. I have a different opinion, based on my experience with other online forums. Without a clearly-defined set of rules, and without a group of moderators enforcing the rules, online forums tend to spiral downward into cesspools of sarcasm and personal attacks. Once that happens, the forum ceases to be a valid resource for people new to the hobby, because they're reluctant to ask questions or make comments for fear of being publicly ridiculed. In other words, the forum becomes irrelevant and begins a slow fade into oblivion.
This forum has been around for a long time, and I don't see the spiral of death happening here. I believe that's because of the dedicated group of mods who objectively apply a well-thought-out set of consequences for misbehavior. Thanks for what you do! Compared to the alternative, this really is quite a pleasant place.
