Just wanna say thank you to the new administration for these great new rules. Until I accidentally break one and then get banned and become a little bit upset.

This one is my absolute favorite, that makes any potential flaws worth it:
3. No posting of personal information, automatic ban

Least favorite:
8. No Porn or Gore

Because what if it's educational gore? What if we put GORE warnings in front of the link to gore?

Also this one:
1. Keep conversation relevant, off-topic posts will be moved or removed

What if someone changes the topic and then you just respond to them? Is that also against the rules or will you only punish the person who started it?

And this one:
7. Flaming and trolling only accepted in appropriate sections (TBD)

Can you explain specifically what would be considered trolling? What if you're serious and people only think you're trolling?
