What I mean is, it sounds like some rules are strictly enforced and that sounds great (like the spam, unmarked spoilers, and illegal activity rules), but I think the most important rules have to do with being nice to each other and the posts about rules barely mention (but do in fact mention) no flaming. I guess the best way to pose the question is, which of the following sample posts would be met with effective-enough discipline to stop such behavior...
(after someone asked for help in winning a game)
"Only and idiot wouldn't realize... [proceeds to explain something in a game]."
(during a disagreement between two people)
"[after making a counter-argument]... You couldn't be more wrong. I mean, seriously, you're making a fool of yourself."
(after someone asks for feedback on an indie game/script/etc. they're working on)
"It's awful. You should just give up... [does not proceed to give any detailed/helpful feedback]."
Basically, do any of the terribly mean yet subtle things that go unmodded on gamefaqs and, IMO, make the gamefaqs forums a terrible place, go unmodded here?
