There's been a lot of talk, and we probably had way too many rules that people had trouble following. Two changes:
There is no more "head mod" for bbv4l that sets policy. Now 42, Cit, Chomp Chomp Chomp, and I are all co-garbage men. We will work under the following mandate, as drafted by the homey Citonabull.
"for god's sake don't be overly offensive"
I/we think you're all smart enough to figure out what this means. We're not going to be splitting hairs over definitions of "overly" or "offensive". If your post gets nuked, ask in ATF and we'll explain. If you get banned, follow the instructions in the ATF thread about what to do when you get banned.
(and to be clear, things like file sharing talk, NSFW posting, are all still out, this shouldn't be viewed as relaxing any of the old rules, just making things much simpler)
