    Hi,

    Brand new here. When I registered I was immediately drawn to the rules and the Crime and Punishment section. I must say although I understand about not wanting illegal stuff on the site, some of the rules and the very public Crime and Punishment section is extremely weird. I've never seen anything like it. Then there's some of the "Infractions"; "Inciting Unrest", "Trolling", "Idiot" and a few others sound like something out of a Communist country!! They even have a point system to rate the severity of your crime. What's next, public floggings?

    My question is; is this site so valuable that many people are willing to put up with it? It's kind of obvious that the "Uber Admins" do nothing but sit at their computers and read every post looking for something to penalize.

    So, is it worth it?

    Yes it is. Just don't be an idiot and you won't have to worry about it.

    I'm going to go ahead and call you a troll. If that's what you honestly think of the site, then log out and never come back.

    Oh and word from the wise, don't piss off us super mods

    We have a rules discussion thread. and yes, we enjoy the forums, we also enjoy following the rules. Rules keep order, we don't want people flaming others that do not know as much or have a question, so we ive infractions/warnings. We have the crime and punishment section to show people that you have broken the rules, which we hope will keep you from breaking tham again. This site is valuable to a lot of people who need help with their iPod Touch. and the Admins work very hard to mintain these forums as a rspectable place for all. They have lives and this is not the only thing they do. Enjoy the forum, and follow the rules.

    Edit: Ninja'd by like three people..

    OK folks, didn't mean to get off on such a bad foot. I've just never seen anything like it. Thanks to the few that offered a welcome.

    Well you need to consider how popular this forum is. There are almost 1.5 million posts and almost 350,000 members. Of course there are going to be idiots that need to be punished.

    Isn't "piss off" considered as profane?
