That's a pretty stupid rule for things that are OBVIOUSLY questions.

It's also a pretty stupid thing to forget, and a pretty easy thing to repost.

Some rules should be enforced by the intention of the rule, not down to the letter.

I know this is a minor issue, but I'm afraid of it snowballing into a larger problem.

Ever see a Jeopardy contestant lose a question because the obviously correct answer wasn't stated as a question? Same concept here - without the prize money of course :)

Simple rule, easy to follow - I can't see what all the hubbub is about?

This is a slippery slope issue. While technically the mods are correct to remove posts without question marks, it's a rule that goes against the spirit of the subverse. Legitimate discussions are started in a thread that simply doesn't have a question mark and they are getting deleted for it. I fear that if behavior like this isn't stopped now the mods might go on a power trip and just ban whatever they want which hampers discussion.

It's kind of ironic that you just incorrectly used a question mark. If I were a mod, I'd delete your comment!

(I'm not attacking you, just pointing out how easy it is to make these kinds of mistakes.)

Might be a stupid rule, but it is a rule of the sub.

This is not the Soviet Union. Some rules do not have to be enforced with an iron fist!
