Well, "enforced those definitions" would imply that there ARE definitions to be referenced. Are they or are they not explicitly laid out somewhere? What I see happening is that people come here to comment on their software, they go on about any aspect of it that they like, including aspects of plot or characters, what have you, then someone or some element comes along to say that the way you are talking about content gets under my skin, then these elements make up some definition for what this forum is supposed to be about to buttress their case. Though it was anything goes before, now things get clamped down.
If these elements are not making this stuff up, then I just want to see where such notions came from. If mods are "enforcing" something some way, I take it they must have a codified point of reference -- the parameters of discussion for Blu-ray Software, something that would even allow a determination that standards are not being conformed to -- these must be laid out somewhere, otherwise how do they "enforce" something which is not a policy and indeed has never even been explained? -- how and/or why would they do it the first time?
All this strikes me as exceedingly bizarre. If someone has a link to "THE RULES" as it pertains to allowable subject matter here, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
