I'm not going to post this message in the Rules thread because I would be a hypocrite doing so, but I think that the Rules thread should be locked and used only by the Mods to post rules changes. Way too often, new folks (and no offense to you new folks - welcome to the forum) post in the Rules thread to ask questions that can be better routed to folks to see the questions through other forums/threads, and less distracting to those of us who think that by suscribing to the Rules thread they will see all the latest rules and rule changes.
I don't mean to make any waves or cause any upset, but frequently I get mail that there are new posts on the Rules thread, and there frequently aren't any new posts there [significant to me] for me to read. It's not an imposition, but it does take a little time to punch a bunch of buttons to read and look for any potentially valuable input (when there in fact may be none). Just my $0.02.
