Can't help you there. While I definitely prefer people using their actual names, this site allows annon names. And unfortunately, even if you required "real" names, how are you going to confirm that? By getting a Cr. Crd. # from people? Who is going to provide that? Even on a free site (card # only for ID verification) a lot of people either don't have a CC or would be uncomfortable with providing one.- moderator deletes nasty posts, ad hominem attacks, etc. immediately
The second I see them, they're gone. However, I am not able to spend 24 / 7 waiting for them to show up, and neither can any other moderator I am aware of.- religious advocacy is not allowed
I respect other people's religious beliefs, and hold my own very dearly, but that's WAY OT, and not generally something I'd want to see on my forum.- three line limit on .sig lines
Four or five would be fine with me - for example, I have no problem with Lee's four line sig... but I think I know where you're coming from. I see no need for sigs that take up half a page either. - people aren't afraid to call "Pro Tools" Pro Tools.
Fine with me. - where people actually talk about recording
That's pretty much all we talk about.

High end guys are welcome too.
Oh, and FWIW, I completely agree with what GM said:I think that a better approach is going to see individuals act responsibly - as if they're might have a long career in recorded music, and are going to have to learn to be cool.
So for anyone who doesn't want to abide by the rules and take personal responsibility for their own actions and words, please don't bother visiting.
