I and everyone should and would probably agree that reading and abiding by the rules is the best thing for a community/forum to make it a fun place for everyone. But like real life scenarios: people are people, meaning you can't have your cake and eat it too. I'm not saying you can't have fun here without rules being absolutely followed, but there's nothing much you can really do but help to YOUR full extent. By that I mean you as a member here are being privileged to contribute as just a member; not a staff member/moderator or admin. I'm sure they know their jobs well and are trying to do them as best as possible. If you don't like being under their authority for whatever reasons then no one's making you stay, I'm sure stirring the pot and making even more conflict is not what they want on their plates.
Although this probably makes me sound like a hypocrite with all this talk but this is an opinion thread and I haven't seen any harsh flaming so I guess it's alright, eh? Please note that this is not towards any persons exclusively and is just what I think, nothing more.
