This is a change that will be represented as a whole on the site in regards to moderation. The moderators will be allowing much more leniency in terms of deleting posts. That is not a license to post anything in the world that you want to post, so don't take this the wrong way. There is a difference between "lenient" and "nonexistent".
In addition to the moderation staff taking a more lenient approach, I ask that our users as well take a more lenient approach towards reporting posts to the moderation staff. The key phrase that I've been instructing the moderators to consider is "Does this post somehow interrupt the conversation at hand?" If it doesn't, does it really need to be deleted? Most likely it doesn't, unless it is posing some kind of legal issue.
So what I'm asking is that both the users and the moderators put some thought into what does and doesn't need to be deleted from a topic. If someone says that a game you like sucks, should we delete it every single time, even if everyone is just ignoring them? If you call someone a "fool" or a "troll" and they don't care, why should we? This is the kind of approach that I'm looking for going forward.
The other thing that I ask is that people try not to take advantage of these rule changes. I know it's tempting, but please refrain so that we can have nice things.
I'll be creating a series of topics on my blog to cover some of the changed rules and give some examples of what is and isn't now a violation of these rules.
