I saw a post in Cesspool where a post was moved. I can't say that it shouldn't have been moved there (it wasn't mine). I just noticed that one reason given for moving it there was that it violated the site rules and in particular the "stereotyping" section. I realized that I had never really seen any rules for this site so I looked under the headings at the top of every page and there was nothing there (unless I missed something). I then went to the main page and scrolled all the way down and there is something about "rules" and I clicked on that. This seems to be a legalistic boilerplate to be agreed to before signing up for the site. There was nothing about "stereotyping" there. I then came to this subforum (Site Feedback) and saw the sticky about rules and clicked on it. There are 5 pages of rules. There's more rules than would be required to run the United Nations surprisingly. Even there, I see nothing about a stereotype section? I don't really care whether there is a stereotype section or not. I'm just curious how a site like this came to develop 5 pages of rules? It's a bit of an overkill isn't it? Why are 5 pages of rules needed and why are they "hidden" in the least frequented subforum on the Site? I'm sure no one has actually read all 5 pages of rules, why would they? It just struck me as kind of funny and kind of delusional. Maybe there is some entertaining backstory?
