Everyone had a chance to discuss this. There has been more than one thread on the subject. We don't need to keep reviving it with every new thread by a brand new member. Personally, I'd rather not see it revived here. The whole thing has been thrashed out so many times, already. Let's give it some time and see how the rule works (or doesn't work) before tinkering with it. That would just lead to confusion and more discussion.
Your concerns are noted, and I appreciate your good intentions, but we aren't even considering changing the rule at this time. If we decide to review it at some time in the future, we will keep your thoughts in mind.

If I can interject my thoughts on this at all, I supported the mods' decision back when it was made and I support it now. When the subject first arose, I was one who called for the rule change due to the fact that in my then 2.5 years here I've seen plenty of members come by, drop a wall of text, then vanish like ghosts. And you all have to remember, that each account on here adds to the data load the server carries. Ideally I would actually call for the deletion of such threads to help conserve memory space, but that really is too harsh and discouraging to those who want to become true, full-fledged members of the site.

Entirely fair enough Teresa. I was not not putting in a complaint or anything, and not really looking for change; I much prefer the new system to the old. Boneman got me thinking, thats all. Fiddling, honing, interfering - for what do we live, but to make sport for our moderators?

In the meantime, this thread was posted simply to make the rules clear - I think there's little to be gained by continuing it as a discussion thread, therefore I'll close it now.
Any specific points about the rules and queries can be posted in the feedback section.
