1I thank and congratulate the moderators for the balance they have shown in interpreting/applying the new guidlines.
And undoubtedly their job has been made easier by everyone here - so far - playing nice.
Are they really all based in Oz? Certainly the guideline architects are not.
IF the mods read this could I suggest that the former FAQ's be completely jettisoned which would perhaps give impetus to new ones being formulated that weren't in general hopelessly out of date.

2And, please, please, get around to letting us know just what the new rules are, with detail of each verboten word/phrase.
I don't mind having to work within a set of somebody else's rules, after all, this is somebody else's infrastructure, but I find it maddening to have to flounder in the dark, trying to figure out whats going on by trial and error.

5Kangaroo Kisser???? Good grief. I do hope that's not universal, I will have to renounce my citizenship!
My most frustrated take on all of this is the dismemberment of the PM function. There are times - issues - especially with recommendations of casas, etc - when a PM is a useful option. I for one don't want my email addy posted but no other way of communicating now. Surely it doesn't serve any real purpose?

6One of things that turned me on to the Thorntree Forum was when I read that it was for people over 18. I thought that we could relax a little and chat like sailors but I guess that some went overboard with this sort of liberty and their subject matter. Yes, over 18 years old sounded refreshing considering that the other forum I have participated in has just an over 7 years old policy, it seems.

12Apparently PM's, signature lines, post histories, past personal post summaries, some specialoty Branches will all re-appear in the fullness of time.
#9 jc...At least the "boundaries" seem to be a tad more elastic than when some Branches TTree first came back (many days before the Cuba Branch). Both words and topics are now left alone that initially were disappeared.
In view of your kangaroo tale I was momentarily tempted to also test the boundary by re-telling "The camels are coming" broma but decided not to tempt fate this early in the peace (note 2 puns in a single sentence).
