Hi everyone. I was invited to help keep the place clean of spam. I adjusted the ruleset to help with this. I don't feel as though any new rules were added, so much as what constitutes spam and off topic crap was clarified. Rules 1-5 are meant to provide clear boundaries for the sub so that we (the mods) are not deleting stuff because of our opinion of it.
I also wanted to solicit feedback on the rules as they stand. Especially Rule #6. If someone has a sports blog and wants to post links to sports related articles that they write I do not personally see how that is any different than an ESPN article. At the same time, if we are going to have someone using the community's sub for personal promotion then why not ask them to pay for it by helping to submit more content? Does an 20/80 split like the one in the sidebar seem fair?
Please weigh in.
