If anything is over-complicated, it's killing game threads for a month in order to set up a system to properly enforce something that should have already been enforced.
I don't necessarily disagree with most of the things you said, but regarding your comment that no game thread posters had a problem with what was going on, that much is certainly clear, but the site administrators definitely had a problem with seeing personal attacks and general snotiness in the game threads (when we did take a look at them).
All this new policy really means is that we're much better equipped to handle the posts that violate site rules.
