    English is my first language, I'm just not any good at typing\writing it, I can read and speak it just fine.

    Well , this guide is more important when protecting a community from degradation.( and generally overrules other rules!)

    The code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Mister Belcher.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    are we keeping the TOS?
    Why wouldn't we?

    do we follow it?
    Um...yes.

    are the guys around before it imune to them?
    I won't deny that there's a double standard. Members who have proven invaluable over the years are typically allowed extra slack.

    Shawn, you need to let it be.
    Yes, quzah was rude to you. Big deal. You really need to not take offense so easily. When you start annoying lots of regular members after only having ~35 posts, your future here starts looking uncertain. Before responding, think on that one for a moment.

    You need to understand that there's much more to a community than "the rules" or TOS. In the long run, the community, especially, the leading community, which include the mods and prestigious members, decide what goes and what doesn't, not the rules.
