Not all of them but the main issue with AM.com was the behaviour of the moderators rather than the actual rules.
They did seem to be very heavy-handed.
I didn't envisage anything in that respect. We are liberal because the community naturally evolved that way, which was also helped by the fact we don't have power hungry staff.
So it seems that, in some ways, setting up MW was a bit of a leap in the dark for you, but one which, fortunately, turned out to be a successful one. I must say I've looked a some other forums in general, out of curiosity, and I'd say that MW is unique in that the right balance has been found between over-zealous moderating and no obvious moderating at all.
