The intent of the poll -- http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/12/248228-forum-changes-consider.html -- was not to add layers of rules to the forum, but to see if we can work as a community and simply respect each other: (1) Clearly, most people would like some limits on the number of new threads per day. Among those who said there should be limits are at least 5 diehard conservatives. Do we need a rule or can we simply do our best to limit our new threads to 3 per day? (2) The question on merging more threads will simply guide FTW and me to be a little more free with merging threads. (3) The question on personal attacks will guide us in being a more aggressive in deleting posts or closing threads that have personal attacks. If you make a personal attack, keep in mind that post may very well be deleted. (4) The question on stereotyping tells me we should largely continue as is, but if you make stereotypes we reserve the right to take action. (5) The question on profanity tells me we should continue as is, but please be sensitive to fact that some people don't like it and this forum may from time to time attract kids. If people don't cooperate, then we'll have some new rules, and the first new rule we're likely to have will restrict the number of new threads per day to three. But, hopefully we can simply try to be a little more respectful.
