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.

I for one want to congratulate you. I've seen communities like the Ubuntu forums become a nasty place under the scrutiny of an army of whimsical policemen (so called "moderators"). Your approach, no matter the outcome, is a more mature one and I wish all the best to it.
