(Just re-posting this from Behavioral Rules)
Amendment II: Community provocation is not allowed.
This means the intentional instigation with the goal of stirring up controversy, riling up other members, inciting flame wars, or promoting rebellion.
Sometimes decisions are made by staff that don't always make sense to members, it happens. But we expect all members to behave appropriately, regardless of their personal feelings towards administrative action. If a decision has been made that you do not like, feel free to initiate a PM conversation with an administrator regarding it- and perhaps they will help explain why it was necessary.
However, staff members hold all authority over these boards, regardless of member approval. The staff are not obligated to change rules or decisions, and in most cases a staff ruling is final whether the community agrees or not. We ask that all members understand that we make rules with the intention of keeping the Message Boards a clean and inviting environment for all fans, young or old, to enjoy.
If a member decides to take matters into their own hands and attempt to rally up support against the admins they will be banned. This website is not a democracy. It's a dictatorship. The community does not run the site, nor do they pay for the site, and have no final say in any decisions that are made.
If at the end of the day a member has determined that they do not enjoy the way the site is run, they are free to leave and request that their account be terminated (banned indefinitely). There are plenty of other forums and communities that may better fit their desires.
