You touch on something someone else posted a long time ago. Just as those of us who are chat regulars have a sense of ownership over chat and would hate to see people barging in and running amok, we are all invited guests of Boss and GIK. Accordingly, we should act as if we've been invited over to their homes and follow their rules. If they asked us to take our shoes off at the door, we wouldn't just barge in and say, "up yours" while tracking mud across the new shag carpeting.
We've all gone too far, made too smart alec of post, held onto an argument a few posts too many, said the wrong things, etc. But this is Boss' and GIK's home, and the mods are their hired hands. We should treat this place and respect their "employees" acordingly.
