That means that any comment could be deemed an insult if the person 'feels' that way and any rules would be pointless.
This is where I think history comes into play. It would be one thing if someone had one problem with another and it was a one-time occurrence, but when it becomes a repeat issue of one person telling another that they find the things they say offensive, then I think that's a problem.

[b]A Lonely Life Forums - Registration Agreement
I didn't get this when I signed up, and certainly didn't see where it can be found on the board.
That version of the registration agreement has existed since 2009. You did get it you obviously did not read it, there is no way you did not get it. It is the first thing you see when you click on "Register" and is the only thing on the screen to read. The "I Agree" button is directly below it, which when you click on it is your acknowledgement of reading it and accepting the Agreement. So saying you did not get it is impossible.
Who knows. Maybe I just don't remember. But to be honest, it seems like I am far from the only one who did not read it.
If you are interested in connecting on Skype or Facebook, send me a Private Message here and I'll get back to you.
Fact: The registration agreement exists.
Fact: It's the purpose of the moderators to interpret and apply those rules and any consequences if they determine a rule has been broken and to what degree.
Fact: Rules are almost always open to interpretation by the folks trying to keep the peace, as well as an occasional few who feel the need to challenge the rules or the way they are interpreted.
