Consider one such rule. Unbiased and balanced presentation of news is stated as a central goal, and yet Rule 11 prohibits criticism of editorial policy in comments.

Criticism of editorial policy is usually off topic. Hence, it is not allowed.

The biases and imbalances that have already occurred on OSNews have been spotted by too few readers

Or, OSNews is simply very unbiased and balanced, and there is little to spot.
