I've recently made adjustments to the site rules and moderation policy. Please take a moment to re-familiarize yourself with the site rules. Specifically, I've removed some rules I found overly restrictive. Topics allowed are now less restrictive, and topics prohibited are now more specific. Threads that don't specifically violate site rules will remain open and undeleted. If a moderator closed or deletes a thread (for reason other than obvious spam/advertising), they're now required to notify the user and specify how it violated the rules. This comes from my personal libertarian views and from member comments and suggestions. In the future, WF will be taking a more "free speech" approach to the forum. As this is a writing forum, I aim to steer WritingForums.org in a libertarian direction that supports free speech and is anti-censorship. Feel free to direct comments or questions regarding these new changes and policies to this thread.
