There's a flaw with the rules - there's too many. Now, that's okay, but the way they're presented is really daunting to new members. Lots of text and so forth.
I didn't read the rules - ever. I just learned them from mistakes and the kindness of moderators and their guiding. It is their job to make new members feel welcome and to ensure they understand the rules and so forth. So, because of the great Mods we had, and continue to have, new members are able to fit in and know the do's and dont's. What they don't need is members like you intimidating them and making them feel unwelcome.
