                Rule 1: Use common sense and precedence (what has been OK (or not banned) in the past.

                Rule 2: If in doubt ask George.

                Rule 3: What George decides or does is not open to or subject to question (He has, as have all VP Moderators, done very well indeed so far) and he DOES NOT have to "explain" or concede to or defer to ANYBODY - end of story.

                Rule 4: If in doubt, just keep pushing the limit/envelope until the "axe" falls and you "get it in the neck".

                If I recall correctly, George Bulliss (Happy New Year George) said previously, at or just after the "IOWOLF"-ie affair that he was in the process of looking into updating "The Rules", but that it would take some time as he was busy and this is not an easy task.

                I suggest that we leave it to George B to be completed or proceeded in due time without undue haste in "the fullness of time".

                In the meantime I suggest we we keep "self regulating" and that we are within George's very generous limits if a post or thread is not deleted or if a thread is not "locked".

                In the meantime I suggest a (re??)reading of the "Rules" at the opening page for the forum, which seem to have served their purpose pretty well for quite a while and which for the "General" and other fora are:

                This forum reserved for your comments and discussion about anything pertaining to our magazines or machining and metalworking in general. It's a place for feedback, idea exchange, criticism, kudos, sharing your expertise, your hobby or virtually anything else that other home shop machinists would be interested in. I will be monitoring it on a regular basis and will participate as it seems appropriate. However, for the most part, it's your forum. I hope you will use it regularly.

                This forum is for seeking and finding help in a variety of ways. You may be seeking advice on a way of solving a problem you have in your shop. Or possibly you just bought a used lathe or some other machine tool, but the seller didn't have an owner's manual, parts list or operating instructions, so you are in need of one. Perhaps you want to contact a manufacturer, but don't have any information about their address or phone. In other words, any help you need can be solicited here. One thing we insist upon, however; this is not a place to sell something. Also, out of courtesy to the helper, the offer of payment for photocopies and postage is certainly in order.

                      Probably right in-as-much as my attitude - so I've been told often enough - is that "You can kiss my ar$e" - which applies here too.

                      Irrespective of how or what you think of me or the "Rules" and how they are administered - or not- just show me where I am wrong in fact - and not as you think "it should be".

                      If you want to address an issue as regards the "Rules", it will ultimately wind up in George's hands/lap for him to decide.

                      If you feel that we should all know what you think - post it here. If you want to "go private" - so we can't see it - use PM or email. But in any case address it to George for decision. Addressing it to the rest of us can only be "for comment only" as we can only "talk about it".

                      That you - or anyone else - may or may not like me or what I say or the "Rules" and how George/VP administers them won't change anything until - and if - George sees fit to decide and publishes it.

                      In the meantime the "status quo" remains.

                      You don't have to love or like it, but you do have to put up with it.

                      Live with it.

                          What about the most important one.
                          All equipment must be painted the right shade of GREEN.
                          Nothing else is acceptable.

                              On a less contentious point, I think a sticky FAQ might be beneficial, with stuff like:

                              "Where do you get AO wheels for the Harbor Freight carbide grinder?"

                              "How do I get the Enco Free Shipping code?"

                              "What's a good starter set of mill tooling?"

                              "Can anyone recommend a starter lathe?"

                              ...
                              "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did."
