OSNews, Generic OSes For a very long time now, OSNews' comment sections were governed by a set of rules that dated back to the very early days of OSNews. This set of rules has been amended a number of times over the years, but we were never really comfortable with such a dry, silly list of arbitrary rules that nobody read anyway. They were too much like an... EULA. So, we decided a change was in order, and I started work on a completely new approach.

A little bit of ranting is ok. I know what you're talking about, but I sort of like it. It shows their humanity, which allows us more context in which to evaluate their stories and opinions.

They aren't the Greek gods up on mount Olympus demanding tributes form mortal men. They're real users of technology and sometimes they do let their emotions show. On the whole, I think its in balance and they aren't too heavy handed with the bans or moderation so they allow as much as they themselves produce and more.
