Didn't we used to have a set of forum rules? Should a new set be drafted and posted? It seems to me that a set of explicit rules, or at least guidelines, would be useful. That way, users have a good idea of what sort of conduct would (or would not) get them into trouble. It also offers some recourse if, say, moderator X is in a cranky mood on a particular day and badgers and/or threatens to ban user Y over something that is often tolerated on the forum. Finally, it would force the moderators to agree on what is or is not appropriate for the forum. For example, some moderators are will threaten to close threads that devolve into bickering, but other mods enter into such heated bickering themselves on a semi-regular basis.

If the rules were deliberately removed (instead of just lost somewhere along the way), why was that decision made? Just curious.

[Note: the comments about moderators in this post are not meant as an attack against any particular mod and should not be construed that way.]
