Late to the party [re: Monkeyboy]  

As much as I think that Monkeyboy can do no wrong, I'm just not OK with this:

In reply to:

you make the rules up as you go along. That is a crock of buggety shit. If there are decency rules, they should be clearly laid out for us to follow.

Fuck no! The *last* thing a forum like this needs is a list of crotchety rules that restrict the posters*. I read another board like that and while it's a good board for other reasons, it drives me nucking futs that they have this list of rules and if you violate them your post gets deleted and in some cases you get banned on the spot.

I think it's ideal here that the rules are flexible. It's not that they're making shit up as they go along, but that they're dealing with things on a case-by-case basis. In the event that something happens often enough to warrant it (e.g., posting porn) then a rule is put in place. But it would be foolish to try to come up with a list of "rules" for this self-governed board of beautiful chaos, if for no other reason then because once there are "rules," this crowd will try to push them as much as possible.

"Common sense," subjective though it may be, is the best way to govern a board like this. If someone crosses the line, deal with it and if necessary put it up for public debate.

For what it's worth, I don't think Monkeyboy has ever crossed the line. *I've* never clicked on any of Monkeyboy's icky stuff, 'cause I use my explorer bar.


*'Cept the THBDB rule. I'm OK with that.

I'm not a fan of our current president, but on the other hand, I don't think he's a Demon. Perhaps a small, trident weilding Imp, but no Demon.
